Windows 7: Random restarts during gameplay and/or music playing

04 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Random restarts during gameplay and/or music playing

I just built a new PC with win 7 professional 64 bit. Has amd FX-8150 on Sabretooth 990fx board. Has an ASUS 7850 graphics card, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM and a SB Recon 3d PCIe sound card. All drivers are up to date and BIOS is as well. The issue I am experiencing is random restarts, no BSOD, just crash and restart. I tried the other diagnostics from other posts and the HD checked out fine, so did the memtest and windows file integrity. I did also run the verifier.exe and it threw an error and gave me an actual BSOD. I have included the dmp file for that incident in the Seven Forums zip file. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Still restarting

This time it restarted suddenly during a session of Skyrim on Steam. I rechecked all of the drivers to make sure they are up to date. Posting a fresh set of logs.
