Windows 7: BSOD multiple errors 116, 117

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

OK, as I understand it, you have tried several drivers for the card, all with a clean install of the drivers. If it is still crashing it would have to be the card, the Motherboard slot(s) or the PSU. You ran driver verifier and there seemed to be no conflicting drivers, so those are all that is left, It would be helpful if your friend could try your card in his computer to see if he gets the same results as you. Am I correct in all of that?

Well you are almost correct. I have tried only 1 driver with the clean install. All rest were just updates.

The driver i installed is in this post: BSOD: Was my NVIDIA driver?
And you were right... it was not you it was Boozad recommending that driver. Sorry for that.

Maybe i need to mention another problem i had since i bought the computer. I connected my monitor to PC using the miniHDMI port on the graphics card. Sometimes it just wouldn't start and gave me 6 beeps. Based on that alienware sent me 3 new graphics card,new processor, new motherboard and then a brand new PC. Problem was still not solved... if i use the miniHDMI port i will still sometimes get 6 beeps. I am using now the normal port (VGA). I dont know if this is related to my problem or not.

I attached 2 new BSODs. Thanks !

That, to me, only would mean the graphics card isn't working like it should. Have you tried HDMI or DVI? DVI always works best for me.

Try the clean install with another driver using the same method. NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems. I always use that method and never install anything except the Graphics Driver and PhysX. Try another driver and see if there is any difference.

I said VGA sorry... i meant DVI. I can't try normal HDMI port because GTX 690 doesnt have one except the miniHDMI. I would need an DVI - HDMI adapter. Alright i will try other driver(s). Thanks.

P.S: I think the files i attached upper are different because those are from BSOD today when i was not playing.

I just curious because I can't find a Alenware motherboard for a 2011 intel cpu.
If I could I could look at the specs.

By chance did your system come with a motherboard manual?
It's a must to have.

What I'm trying to do is find a way for you to see as much of your system as possible. You will find out the more you know about your system the is a good thing.

Try this tutorial by Kari and see what it shows.
