You can help us to you by filling in your system specs.

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the Other Info block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

Of the three txt files, I see nothing unusual.

Can you tell me under what circumstances you are still getting BSODs?

Please update your bios. Yours is version F5 and the latest is F9b.

Here's the website page:
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-990FXA-UD3 (rev. 1.0)

I would also like for you to do me a favor as part of my own testing.

I would like for you to upload the MySystem.txt file that this script will put on your desktop.

I updated my specs on my profile. I built the machine myself. I was working on Microsoft word 2003 and listening to Pandora on Google chrome when it BSOD the last time. The time before I think it was just sitting on desktop with nothing running. You want me to update the Bios to a beta?

I've only started looking at one of the two dump files, but I find the error msg unusual.
could you download, install and keep Speccy running in the background?
Speccy is an easy, non-intrusive way of keeping an eye on temps.
Of course, as I've indicated the bios needs to be updated.

I am getting a very strange error message. The same one i've gotten when itried to update it before. Also i am running speccy in the back ground temps are off though says my CPU is running at 11C right now which would be impossible...

Also up loaded my specs directly from speccy if it helps.

thanks the script correctly reported your bios version. Your current version is F5.
That error msg is from a gigabyte bios flash program.

You should be using Qflash from Gigabyte.

Here is a write-up on how to update your bios.


Insert a USB stick (256 mb is more than enough)
WIN + E | right-click on the drive
Format | set FAT32 as the FileSystem | uncheck Quick Format |
button | Close button after format finished

WIN + E | right-click on the drive
Properties | Tools tab | Check Now button |
both boxes | START button

Go to the Gigabyte website Gigabyte Homepage
Click on Support and Downloads (in the menu at the top)
In the Downloads' Model Name box, enter your motherboard model, for example,GA-Z68X-UD4-B3, click on Search
In the Results section, click on BIOS
You are now at the Downloads page for your motherboard

In the row For the most recent BIOS, in the Download Here column,
select your desired download source, for example, America
Click on the Save button

You have now Downloaded the Bios update file which is a
self-extractor, for example, mb_bios_ga-z68x-ud4-b3_f10.exe
Extract the file (simply run the file you downloaded to extract)
Copy the file with a name like Z68XUD4.F10 to the USB stick.
Leave the USB stick connected.
Shutdown your computer.

Power Up your computer.
Immediately start continuously tapping the END key on the keyboard.
The Main Menu of Q-Flash will appear on the screen.
Select HDD-1.0 and hit ENTER
Select the Bios update file and hit ENTER
Press ENTER when Are you sure to update BIOS? appears.
The monitor will display the update progress.
When the update is finished, press any key.
You are now back at the Main Menu

Remove the USB stick.
Press ESC and then press ENTER to exit Q-Flash.
Your system will reboot.

Immediately start tapping DEL (the Delete key) to enter BIOS
Select Load Optimized Defaults and hit ENTER
Select Save and Exit Bios and press Y
Your system will restart and the procedure is complete.

Of course, you use your motherboard designation, which is in the mysystem.txt file: GA-990FXA-UD3
