That's the on chip graphics in your CPU. You obviously do not have a dedicated graphics card, so you don't have switchable graphics.

Happy New Year to you. Please let me know your CPU temps when you have time, Core Temp is what I use, but I think it works better with Intel than AMD. AMD has only 1 temp sensor, so it will only show you 1 Temp. That's OK we can deal with that. It will also show you your maximum temp. Software, any program, is notoriously wrong. Most of that is because both Intel and AMD use algorithms but won't tell anyone what they are. So, software companies have to try to figure them out. So, look at temps as a close approximation of temps. My rule is to say 10-15C below what they say is max. So, let me know what your temps are at idle and while doing normal work. Also try the most CPU intensive thing you normally do and let me know your temps there.

Hi. I've installed the Core Temp x64 and am attaching the feedback (screenshot and dump).

I'm not sure it's a temperature issue because when yesterday when I left the computer on (but wasn't doing any work),I came home to a BSOD.

Also, about 4 days ago I ran Prime 95 and it didn't BSOD.

Perhaps it's an electrical issue with the motherboard? I'm not sure :-( I lack experience with this stuff but I'm happy to follow any suggestions and recommendations that you have and I appreciate you taking the time to help me.

OK, thanks. Lets try this.

Be sure to create a restore point manually before enabling Driver Verifier. Link is below on how to do it. Use the computer any way you want to. When you enable it, sort the drivers by provider and enable all drivers not supplied by Microsoft. Run Driver verifier for 24 hours of actual use. We are trying to make it BSOD and hopefully trap the driver causing the problems.

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

What is Driver Verifier:
It puts stress on the drivers, and tries to make the faulty driver crash the computer. It is designed this way, to attempt to trap the offending driver.


What you will notice:
It will tend to make the computer rather slow and sluggish because the drivers are being stressed.

Before enabling DV, make sure you have created a system restore point before enabling Driver Verifier. make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hi. I've done research on Driver Verifier and I'm worried to use it. A lot of people say that it does more harm than good, and that, at best it's hit or miss. A few people said that they could no longer log in after using it.

Is there another program or solution that you recommend?

Thank you.

No. Driver verifier puts strain on the drivers trying to make the bad driver crash so we can hopefully find it. That's also why a lot of people couldn't log in after using it, and they didn't create a restore point before enabling it. Feel free to do whatever you want.

SavingHumanity, you need to understand that every test you run and every thing you do, there is a risk in, Every time your computer BSODs, there is a risk too. No matter what you do, it may result in having to reinstall Windows. But, you may have to do that anyway. There are no guarantees in life. If you don't trust me, perhaps I can find someone you do trust.

Hi SavingHumanity.

If you follow the post #26 by essenbe, Driver Verifier will not cause any big issue for you.

DV is risky, for sure. But that post contains all the possible safeguards against the risks involved.

So dont be worried, follow it. You have essenbe with you to take care of your you issue, that means a big thing.
