Random bsod caused by gpu overheat?

My computer does random bsod lately. I am really not sure what causes it. I think it could be gpu overheating. i find the gpu (gtx 295) to be high temperature. But afterwards my pc just reboots without having to cool down first. It runs fine afterwards but sometime later it might happen again.

I included crash dump.

Hi.

Make it sure that your Vartex2 SSD is running with the latest firmware.
Download OCZ Toolbox and Firmware Updates

Also, the C (on the same SSD) is running out of free space.

ITEMVALUE
Schijf C:
Omvang 107,03 GB (114.926.022.656 bytes)
Beschikbare ruimte 2,46 GB (2.637.828.096 bytes)

Salvage some free space. At least 10% of the disc capacity should be left free.
You will get some idea in Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover. Try the step 10 first: Disable Hibernation and Delete hiberfil.sys File.

Let us know the results.

EDIT: as you are worried of the temperature, 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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs . But the crash dumps are not pointing to the GPU but the storage.

Thx for the reply. I have tried your suggestion and now 20% of ssd is free. The ssd firmware was already up to date.

The problem is still there and got even worse. It now crashes almost instantly when windows 7 has loaded. It seems very instable. I am now running in safe mode, which runs just fine.

Do you have other suggestions?

Can you update the latest crash dumps following the BSOD posting instructions?

What we have ensured that ...
  • The firmware is latest
  • There is more than enough free space (25 GBs).
Now, post screenshots of all your HDDs and SSDs using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World

And, open the computer. Make it sure that all the SATA cables are properly connected. Also attach teh SSD to another port in the motherboard.

Let us see if it makes any difference or not.

I have replaced the sata cables of my two HDDs and plugged them into another port in the motherboard. So far no more crashes. :)

I will test it for some more time to see if its stable.
