Windows 7: PC freeze & horizontal stripes

21 Jul 2015   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

If I do not run driver verifier my PC BSODs.

These are my verifier settings:

Still happen. But there happened something suspicious: I wanted to use my DVD-Drive but when I look in my Computer window there is no DVD-Drive shown. So I go to device manager and I see it says that the driver is corrupt or missing. So I reinstall the driver of the drive and it shows up in Computer again. I try to access it but a freeze (striped screen) happened. I reboot and the driver for the DVD-drive is missing again! I reinstall it again and another freeze happens. So I thought maybe the DVD-drive has something to do with the freezes. I completely unplugged the drive of my computer but the freezes are still happening.

Now without having to delve all the way back have you run the machine with another card - any AMD one would do to see if it is not the card at fault? because we are running out of options here.

I guess you have already tried reseating the card and power leads?
see my little ditties and please run both because I ma intereste in what is happening with the PSU too.


Now as for the slots toclean them use a strip of old credit card (or any card thin enough some arebetter than others ) about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold a piece of thin lint free cloth over theend dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin withbefore an injection) is good and GENTLYswipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s andalso the contacts of the sticks or cards - not the stick but some lint freecloth of course. See my pic for the sick but please be very gentle doing it ifyou are in any doubt - please ask before doing it but I use this all the timeand have yet to damage anything

Using HW Info


You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right handwindow select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will seewhat the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give awayyou are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titlesand one that pops up often is ITE

Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/-of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.

See this for the rail voltage info,3061.html (Section 2.)

The original right hand window shows the machine running and ishandy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it anduse the main left hand side panel



Open each small square with + in it on the section thecomponents are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the righthand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and otheressential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Use PART A: to check the PSU and PART B: to check the graphics readings being a desktop card the readout will be far more detailed - look for what seems to be abnormal volts temps etc etc

As said before, the issues do not happen on win XP. As such I haven't tried anything that is related to hardware.
Anyways here are my hwinfo results:

Well the PSU seems up to scratch at least - I was looking for a wayward rail that may have been throwing the graphics card out.

I don't know if Boozad has any ideas on the graphics card it could just be faulty in some way.

OK this is too annoying; is there any chance that upgrading to win10 will fix the issues?
