Windows 7: [BSOD] Some odd complications.

All that's left then is the Asus Update stuff. Can you turn that off and test?

Windows 7 X64 7100

I uninstalled the 'ASUS Update' program, upon starting it i got errors 'Deos not support NT 6.1' or something, despite the package on ASUS's webite said it was Win7 compatible. No difference has been made since uninstalling it and numerous rebooting, do you think it could be a GPU issue? As it only really occurs when running anything 3D-intensive.

I'd try the graphics intensive stuff to see if it forces a BSOD.
Can you open the case in order to see/hear where the buzzing is coming from?

I'd suspect hardware issues if it continues - either the hard drive, the memory, or the video card. You can test the hard drive using this procedure at my blog: Bootable Hard Drive Diagnostics - Vox
And you can test the memory from this post at my blog: Bootable Memory Test Diagnostics - Vox

The buzzing from the BSOD comes through the speakers, however it must be said if i leave my computer for a while and let it run the screensaver, when i move the mouse or what not to get it back, my computer makes a buzzing noise, i read the manual that came with the motherboard and it said that "one short buzz signals VGA detected". I'm not sure if it should do this when coming off a screensaver, i've ran memtest86+ and the built in memory diagnostic for several hours before coming here and it found no faults. I'll continue on what you suggested and get back to you

The speakers are sometimes a "mirror" for the innards of the system - letting you know when there's interference. If it's only from the screensaver, then I'd wonder about the video card.

There's no test (AFAIK) for a video card - but the memory and hard drive diagnostics will tend to rule out those parts Since the noise is from the speakers and not the case, I don't have any reason to suspect the hard drive.

In short, I'd see if you can get a hold of another video card that'll fit the system.
Download the latest drivers for it to your Desktop
Then uninstall the current video card drivers and software, then physically remove the card from the system.
Then install the new card, boot to Windows (dismissing the "Found New Hardware" dialog) and install the freshly downloaded drivers.
Then test the system to see if you can make it Blue Screen again.

I noticed once i've uninstalled the 190.xx drivers to the current ones, when i uninstalled and then rebooted, a dialog came up saying it was installing drivers (WDDM 1.1 or something) should this of happened and does it interfere with the nvidia drivers?

Edit: Been running ATItool for a while now, no artifacts yet.

Sorry, I should have been more specific - I wasn't looking for a stability test. Rather a test that would test all of the hardware in the card. I've seen too many instances of a stability test passing - yet the card turned out to be defective.

I haven't got round to doing the HDD yet, i checked TGsoldiers link and tried the first one, the program upon clicking start froze almost instantly. Benchmarking works as it's running now, i'll try it's testing-thing in compatibility see if that works for me. If somebody else could try this program on Win7 that would ge helpful

Maybe it help

I've got a similar pc and similar issues, BSOD, some lagg on mouse movements when i use ethernet (not on wifi), and slowdown internet connection. And my solution is to change CPU C State Capability from C4 to C3 on CPU BIOS options.
