New PSU and GPU and my comp is still crashing regularly

Q: New PSU and GPU and my comp is still crashing regularly

First, my PC specs...
CPU- AMD Phenom 2, 3.2ghz 6-core
PSU- Apevia 680W(old PSU) and Corsair CX750M(new PSU)
GPU- Radeon 6750HD(old GPU) and GeForce GTX 650TI(new GPU)
MOBO- Asus Evo AXT (about 4 years old)
RAM- 2x4GB dual-channel 1600hz corsair
My issues started when I decided to upgrade my GPU to the GeForce 650TI. I got it, plugged it in and all that goodness, but my games kept crashing. At first, my PC would say that the drivers were crashing. I, being stupid, decided to keep the card and fight through it until the drivers were updated and would be more stable. The crashes didn't stop, however. Then came the BSOD. It's constant and unpredictable. The only time it happens is when I'm gaming, but it can happen once every 5 hours or once every 20 minuets (lately, more frequently). So, I finally was able to afford a new PSU today, as everything I've read said that MUST be the problem. It didn't do anything whatsoever. SO, with the new PSU and new GPU in, I decided to put my old GPU in and see what happened. Logically, taking steps to make sure none of the drivers were overlapping, ect. I assumed it would work. Nope. New PSU and old GPU, still constantly getting blue screens, even at low video settings in the game. I'm not running other programs or background operations. No antivirus, ect. I've been into my BIOS to look at my 12v fluctuation and on the old PSU it's between 11.76 and 12.03 and on the new one it's between 11.97 and 12.03, so the new PSU is quite a bit more stable, but with either installed, the system is blue-screening just as frequently.

I've been mostly playing "Smite" and also tested this in "Crysis 2" and "Counter Strike: GO" all at max settings. Smite takes the least system resources and is the most infrequent, being anywhere from 3 hours to 10 minuets of play time before crashing. CS:GO, the second most strenuous, didn't crash at all in the approximately 30 minuets of playtime. And Crysis 2 couldn't even get past the sinking ship in the first 5 minuets of the game. I reloaded Crysis 2 and Smite at lower settings but to no avail.

The only other thing I could think that it is would be my RAM, which is fairly cheap and old. My motherboard has also been the victim of 2 lightning storms that killed the onboard sound and networking and now I've got separate PCI cards for both. Maybe the MOBO is so partially fried it's not delivering power well?

Preferred Solution: New PSU and GPU and my comp is still crashing regularly

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I just picked up a new computer today (second-hand), and I'm having some issues. It's running W7, and every time I turn it on, it will run for about 1 minute before it powers off. I've turned the cooling dial at the back on full, and still it does this... I cannot run anything, as it simply won't run. Here are the specs, and I'm not tech savvy so if you chaps could keep the answer as simple as possible that'd be great.

Intel Core2 Quad CPU @ 2.88GHz
3GB DDR3 RAM @ 1000MHz
1TB Primary HDD
250GB Secondary HDD
Thermaltech Watercooling
Thermaltech 800W PSU
ATI Radeon HD4670 w/1GB ded. RAM

Hi guys.

I've had my laptop for a almost a year and a half now. Within 3 months of having it, I had recieved my first blue screen. I didn't pay too much attention to it as I didn't use the laptop much but these continued and started to happen more frequently (upto 5/6 times a month instead of once every few months). I took a photo of the blue screen with my phone:

Everytime it goes to crash dump, it says "physical memory dump failed with status 0xc000009c"

Also, 90% of the time before it crashes/blue screens, any sound i'm playing becomes distorted for a few seconds then the screen will freeze and crash.
Recently while watching a video on youtube, the screen turned multicoloured as shown below. (not sure if its related to my problem but i thought it would be worth mentioning anyway)

Lastly, I had left my laptop running with a browser open while I watched TV and when I came back the screen had froze and the fan was blowing constantly.
I have uploaded the files from the SF_Diagnostics tool as an attachment

Any help would be great as its starting to become very frustrating.


A:BSOD/crashing regularly

First, welcome to SevenForums, Andy55. We will try to help you.

We need your dump files. There isn't any in your zip file.
Check this :

1. Go to System Properties (right click on Computer icon, and click properties)
2. Go to Advanced System Settings.
- If you asked by UAC, click yes.
3. In Advanced Tab, Startup and Recovery section, click Settings.
4. For System Failure make sure you have settings like this :
- Write an event to system log : On (checked)
- Write debugging information - Small Memory Dump (256 KB)
- Click OK and restart your computer if you changed something.

Note : Make sure you don't use CCleaner, or any Disk Cleanup tool because that will delete dump files.

After this follow this tutorial : http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Then upload zip file again.

Hi everyone, first time posting, thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer. I have been getting a lot of crashes on my computer, the frequency is increasing lately - nearly every day at some point. Often when I am working on multiple programs at the same time, or when I am accessing Photoshop or videos. I get the BSOD, it has run Checkdisc a couple of times with no errors, although usually just restarts.

Not sure what is causing it, have the latest version of the video driver, antivirus up to date.

Here is the info from TSG Sysinfo:

I have also attached the last few minidumps as a zip as requested in other posts.

Hope someone can help me work out what is going on.

I posted this in the wrong place.

Newbie here. My tech knowledge is limited.

I have done a clean install of a Windows 7 (purchased new) and it has been running now for about 2 weeks, but keeps crashing (blue screen).

Dunno what it is, but OMG i'm going NUTS trying to get it running stable. It has crashed during document writing, picture viewing, zip file creation... there seems no common thread.

I have searched and searched, but don't really know what to try. Will post any other information that may help. I really want to nail this, WITHOUT having to buy a new computer if I can help it.

The problems seem to have occurred ever since install. I installed the OS and then iolo antivirus, office and a few other apps. The system has been unstable since this time.

All drivers are updated using windows update (including optional updates).

Ram is 4.0 GB but I don't know how to find out what type.

I am running iolo system mechanic 9.5.3 which has iolo system shield (antivirus) attached to it. Iolo states this is compatible with win7

Something else that turned up...

Windows 7 generated an error report: "blue screen error caused by a device or driver". However when I go to update drivers on windows update it says no important updates are available, and I have installed all optional updates as well.

There are 5 problems (ie blue screen shut downs) the error message applies to. Here is the info Windows 7 has provided for 2 of them:

My new install of AC3 Windows 8 Pro keeps crashing every ten minutes or so. I think the problem is with some key combinations pressed in the game that bring up some shortcuts even when I'm in the game. I know this since pressing Alt+Tab a couple of minutes in shows the "Immersive background" and "Search settings" menus up on the desktop.

Anyone have any idea how to prevent these shortcuts from executing when in game? I'm not pressing any of the keys except W,A,S,D and the space bar and the two mouse buttons. Thanks!

For the last 6 weeks or so my PC has stated to regular crash or blue screen, normally once every day or two days, but on occasion 3 or 4 times a day at its worse. The crashes come in a variety so I am not sure how to problem shoot. Are the system error logs I can show you guys or anything? Example crashes below:

1. Bluescreen, I have seen at least two different bluescreen messages appear regularly, unable to catch the exact name though. One was something similar to
System_Service_Exception. Bluescreens have happened at various time without a pattern i.e. whilst using one set program.

2. Computer freezes needing restart. This happens more regularly than the blue screen, I can be playing a game like Crysis, or simply browsing and the computer will simply hang and I have to restart the PC from power switch.

3. Every single day without fail I will have two mini crashes. This is where the computer freezes for about 5-6 sec and then resumes again. The first crash will happen about 15-20 after power-up, the second mini crash will happen about 10 mini after the first.

Any ideas please let me know. Ill provide as many logs/information as you can tell me how to find!

I already deleted a few susicious entries which I know without a doubt are malware however I know that reading an hjt scan on a 64 windows system does differ in some ways detection wise. I will run a scan with superantispyware right now run a vundo check and if need be I guess we will get the big guns out for combofix.

Hi all. I am running my desktop on Widows XP and it is running very slow. I have emptied everything that i can from it and now have used 17.6 GB free 215GB freeon my hard drive. The desk top is now 4 years old so i dont expect it to be super quick but it is much slower than it was. I have a feelin that there is something running in the background and despite running Ad-Aware anti malware and full virus/ spyware using my PC Tools Internet Security. I was considering carrying out a reformat but am not sure what to do and how to re-install Windows XP as i have no hardware for it only a serial number. Have carried out the tasks as requested deapite it taking 3 hours to carry out the GMER one as it kept closing down the computer.

Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. Cheers Bill

My computer has developed a very annoying BSOD problem recently and I am unable to pinpoint what I might have done to cause this

? Windows 7 Professional
? x64
? Vista Home Premium x32
? Full retail version
? 27 months
? October 2009 (Win 7 release)
? Intel Q6600
? His/ATI HD 5670
? Motherboard : As supplied - Dell XPS 420
? Power Supply : As supplied - Dell XPS 420

These BSOD were very rare then started to get more regular. Usually fairly soon after restart. Another odd thing also started recently which I guess is probably realted - during boot and shutdown there is a very long period of about 5-10 minutes when nothing seems to be happening then all of a sudden the process continues.

Recently my Vista install has become very unstable. BSODs are becoming very regular, often occuring within about 5-10 minutes of each other.
I've been having trouble installing games such as Sims 3 and Supreme Commander; they complain of CRC errors when copying the files. However, the discs work fine in other computers, and trying to copy the files to an ISO and mounting it on this computer had the same error, so I don't think it's a DVD Drive problem.

Firefox often shuts down with no error message, it just closes everything. I also often get Vista windows coming up saying 'Superfetch' or 'Host Process and Services' has crashed and needs to shut down.

I've ran a quick scan with Anti-Malbytes which didn't find anything. I've also run chkdsk with /f and /r set on startup, which found no bad sectors or anything on the hard drive.

Does anyone know what could be causing this problem? I'm considering reformatting the drive with either XP or Windows 7, Vista has caused me nothing but problems so far.

I'm running Vista with the newest service pack, and all updates installed.

Thank you.

As stated in the title, my computer is overall going really slow, and my Windows Explorer is crashing on a fairly regular basis; about every 2 or 3 minutes. I also lose my internet connection temporarily as Windows Explorer restarts. When my internet does load, there are a lot of sites that I can't access.

I've removed a number of various Trojan viruses already, but now I can't even boot up normally. Luckily, I can boot in safe mode with networking, so I can still access this site.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,
PC is running XP - updated to SP3

The Back Story:
Last week my computer started to act up. My motherboard has been going for some time now, and that led to one of my monitor inputs (i dual screen) failing. However, on the Sunday morning, I turned it on to find my main monitor not working. I plugged in the old monitor into that same plug and it worked, and then i plugged in my main monitor into the plug that i had used for my old monitor, and strangely it worked. Yet they would not work the other way.

When I then booted up applications, things started crashing everywhere. I use Lacuna Launcher (basically just a quick batch file to launch several applications together) and out of Itunes, MSN Messenger, Steam, Opera, Ventrilo and KeePass, only KeyPass didnt crash. I could then go and lunch Itunes, MSN Messenger, Opera and Ventrilo individually and they would work.

Opera (happens on firefox and IE as well) is crashing regularly, mainly when there are multiple tabs open. I have noticed (but cant confirm due to the highly rare occurence of it and my lack of concentration) that on VERY rare occasions while browsing the internet, I will get redirected to advertising pages. This has only noticeably happened twice in the past week though. I have also noticed memory usage rises to very large amounts (around 100K) in the firefox process when Opera is crashing (i have firefox open for facebook, and opera to browse, so that neither programs crash from multiple tabs), yet Opera&#...

A:Applications Crashing regularly, sporadic memory usage jumps, spyware detected

Some Updates on the problem.

Today Opera has totally stopped working. It loads up the interface but then crashes straight away. I find this strange considering it was loading for a whole week (albeit with a lot of crashing) before this happened.

MSN Messenger also occasionally drops out (but not the entire internet, as it drops out I am still talking to people on Ventrilo, a VOIP application, and there is no drop out or latency or anything. This can occur on other applications as well, but is most prevelant on MSN Messenger
I have kept my firewall (ZoneAlarm) on at all times, but am concerned that perhaps it may have a way of storing personal data (other members of my family use this computer and credit card details may or may not have been entered on the computer this week) such as credit cards or passwords. Does anyone know whether the malware that has been found here has compromised my data in any way? Naturally that is always a risk with malware but perhaps someone might know for this specific case.

Hello, not sure if this is a hardware problem or a software problem. But my brother's computer is crashes spontaneously, usually when he either runs a game or is using internet explorer(tho one time he left his computer on and left the room and came back and it was off, then he got an error message and we had to use the recovery console to fix it). Anyways, it works now, thought highly doubt it will stop from crashing again unless I do something. What steps would I take to ensure that it won't do that?

He's got windows xp home and avg free virus protector, windows defender, and I have ran the defrager, disc cleanup, scan disk, and scanned with windows defender and the avg free. Is there any other measures I can take to maybe fix an internal system error that keeps crashing his computer? or do you think its his ram cards(running dual 1 gig sticks, so 2 gigs total) or processor that's doing this?

Any help would be great. Thankyou and sorry if I posted this in the wrong category.

A:Comp keeps crashing

We would have no way of diagnosing the problem unless we have the error codes.

Do you receive a blue screen when it crashes?

Navigate to C:/Windows/minidump. If there any files there - zip them up and upload to your post.

Hi guys,

For some reason my comp is crashing after about 2 minutes of being switched on. Very frustrating!! I have done a housecall scan which showed up a few things but would not delete one specific infection. I will try and get the name of it for you.

In the meantime I have a HJT log just in case there is anything on there. By the way, I did the log whilst in safe mode but will reboot and do another one for normal Windows.

Thanks in advance...

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

Not sure where to post this but after playing World of Warcraft or too much multimedia playing, comp would crash. It would just freeze up.

It all started when I fooled around with Regedit and played around with the memory management and page pool size settings etc. I've set it back to what it was before but that didnt seem to have done anything.

Im thinking it had something to do with that or perhaps memory if not overheating.

How can I pinpoint my problem more?

Any scanners I can download etc?

hey guys, im having a problem with my comp and ive tried a lot to fix it but have had no luck, this is whats happening..

First, when I boot the computer, sometimes it just doesnt boot. The fan turns on, the hdd spins but nothing happens.

Then recently, i've been getting crashes. I can usually run fine for a few hours, then it crashes. No bsod, it just freezes. Then the same problem(comp wont turn on) I listed above happens, if I try like 50x in a row, eventually it'll work and windows will start.

If I leave the computer off for like 30 minutes, it will boot everytime, but even if the comp has been on for 10 minutes, i'll have to leave the computer off for like 30min before it will boot up again

Some things ive tried to fix it:

format, blow fan on inside, re-seat cards and check connectors, all no luck


incase it matters
512 ram
chaintech ct-skt600 mobo

When I start up Counter Strike: Source, It sometimes makes my monitor screen go black other than a light blue box with a white border, which says "No Signal Input Check Video Cable". I did the obvious thing, checked my video cable, nothing changed, same thing happened. My friend fooled around with it, fixed it . 2 Months later (now) the same thing happened , i checked the video cable, nothing, i asked my friend again, nothing. This doesn't always go to a black screen at the main menu, but when playing the game . Is this due to my video card? Or something else? Should i re-install the drivers? My video card is a Nvidia 9500 GT (got it for christmas in 08)
When the screen goes black, the sound still is there, although it repeats the sound my computer does not turn off either.

Please help, my computer crashes randomly, when i say freezing, i mean the screen turns blue and it makes the computer restart, where i have the option of starting windows normally or in safe mode or save mode with networking. I chose safe mode with networking and things have been working ok like this, Its not when i open any specific program, it can happen as soon as my computer starts up or after my comp been working for a while. Also, since this started happening, my internet expolorer doesnt work anymore, it will usually say that internet exploror has stopped working and windows is checking for a solution,which it never finds, and it shuts it down. i have to use google chrome to get on the internet. I dont know anything about computers, i tried to restore it to an earlier date but it wont let me do that and everytime i turn on my computer the normal way (im in safe mode now) an error sign from norton comes up saying 5013,3 is wrong with it and how to fix it, but that didnt work either.
