BSOD at random situations

Hello guys.

If you installed Motherboard drivers fro the drive dish, please go to your motherboard web site for your board and update the drivers. The DVD drivers are always out of date.

If you installed any of the Gigabyte Utilities, uninstall every one of them. They are sure BSOD causers.

After doing that please make sure all of the windows updates are installed and there are no more to install.
Then update/reinstall the Nvidia drivers going by this guide.
NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Then please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Also, what manufacturer and size of PSU do you have, and is this a total custom build, or did you use some part of another system in this build? I would also run Disk Check and the manufacturer's diagnostic program, running both the short and long tests. If you are using an SSD, make sure the firmware is up to date.

This is a total custom build. I tried everything you said and nothing solved the BSOD. I did the memtest86+ and the windows memory test. That was my memory module.

I called the warranty and changed it. Now its everything working great, since yesterday.

Thanks for the help.
