Windows 7: Frequent but seemingly random BSOD. Assistance appreciated

06 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Frequent but seemingly random BSOD. Assistance appreciated

dmp file attached

Win7 Pro x64
Intel i7 4790k
Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z97 mobo
4x4GB GSKILL Ripjaws X RAM
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760
2x 4TB HDD (forget the brand/model)

The crash is totally random but usually happens when the computer is not in use. The BSOD appears for a few seconds before the system reboots, then forces me into the BIOS where all the settings have been changed to the defaults. I have to reset the memory timings before I can get back into Windows. From there I use the Intel XTU to change the CPU settings to those recommended by Intel.

In spite of what the zip file shows, I have been receiving crashes between January and now, but it was not generating a dmp file.

SFC /scannow comes up clean
memtest86 shows no errors
Check Disk was performed yesterday with no errors

I'm happy to provide any further information you may need

I realized that I had not supplied details of the crash when I posted this. I have edited the original post.

Frequent and seemingly random BSOD
I just built my computer a couple days ago and everything seemed to be running fine. Last night I started getting crash after crash and I cannot figure out what is going wrong. I re-checked all of my connections and could not find any errors in that regard. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hello everyone! I'd like to start off by saying that my pc knowledge is quite basic. I know more than the casual user, but less than people who frequent this forum (as i have noticed from other threads). I hope you can understand that, while sometimes i might comprehend the things said to me...
