Windows 7: BSOD While Playing Games Or Watching movie (3D)

24 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD While Playing Games Or Watching movie (3D)

Hi All,

Many thanks for taking the time to try and help.

My system:

I7 920 CPU
Gigabyte EX58-UD5 MOBO
3 X 2GB G.Skill Trident RAM
ATI 6950 x 2 (Xfire) GPU
1200W Thermaltake PSU

About 5 months ago I started randomly getting BSOD's, initially I thought one of my GPU's was going bad so I removed one to avoid any crossfire complications but still the BSOD'S persisted. My CPU was overclocked to 4ghz so I thought could be that and dropped everything back to stock but still the BSOD'S persisted.

So it would seem I am BSOD'ing with or without an overclock and with or without Xfire enabled.

I have since formatted several times to eliminate any software errors but still to no avail as the BSOD'S keep happening while gaming or watching 3D movies (even happened yesterday while browsing the net)

(info snippet, 0x0000009C was the last code I managed to see during the most recent BSOD before it restarted the comp)

Last night I ran memtest all through the night which successfully completed 10 passes with no errors.

I have been running prime95 for the last 6 hours with my overclock enabled and ram running at 1920MHZ 9-9-9-24 and no issues.

It generally only seems to BSOD when playing / watching something 3D intensive.

I have used the SF Diagnostics tool as requested and collected all the information required.

Please for the love of god could someone have a look at this and try and put my out of my misery as I am THIS close to taking my sledge hammer to this damn thing.

Many Thanks
