    BSOD while playing games or listening to music


    Once or twice a day, I get a BSOD. I've tried updating my drivers to no avail. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
    You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


    During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

    I've updated the video card drivers to the latest versions, but I'm still getting BSODs. Any other errors you see?

    Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
    Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

    Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

    Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
    eXtreme Power Supply Calculator

    Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

    Let us know the results.

    Actually Arc that was the first thing that struck me - PSU some info on it would be good.

    Definitely not overclocking! Every bus is at stock clock speeds.

    Here's the screenshot of Speccy after ~20 minutes of running Furmark at 1080p:



    That was with Crossfire enabled, I'm sure of it. Furmark and the ATI Control Panel thing said Crossfire was enabled.

    I'm thinking I should remove one of the gfx cards and maybe see if that helps? I don't really need two of them.

    The power supply unit is two and a half years old - it's a Corsair GS700.

    Thank you for helping!!!

    Oh, also, the Power Supply calculator says 335W are needed for 90% load with only one graphics card plugged in, which is what I now have (I removed the second one). I have 600W available.

    Remove one and see what happens.

    My 2cents again if that is an idle temp for the CPU then I would seriously look at finding out why it is a tad on the high side (for me) unless the ambient temp is very high of course. What cooling has it and the case for that matter got??

    The GPU temps are well not what I would want to see on just an idle. It will be good to see what taking one out does.
