BSOD after long gaming period.

Q: BSOD after long gaming period.

I'm receiving a BSOD into about 1 - 2 hours of gaming.

BlueScreenView reports the error as:

Bug Check Code: 0x00000124

Caused by driver hal.dll,
Caused By Address hal.dll+ 37213, ntoskrnl.exe+1c5f2d

Is this Hardware related, Graphics Card perhaps? I'm also constantly getting atikmdag.sys and atikmpag.sys crashes but am not sure if that is related to the BSOD in question.

Preferred Solution: BSOD after long gaming period.

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.)

Hi udin901.

The latest dump gives a notion that BitDefender caused the BSOD.

Uninstall BitDefender. How to uninstall Bitdefender

Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the result.

Hi everyone,

I have a BSOD once after a long period where the PC has been shut down (1-2 hours+). After that the PC will work without any problems for the rest of the day. I tried safe mode after a long shutdown and it works fine. Memtest and Western Digital HDD Diagnostic came out clean.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Full Retail Copy
Hardware is around 8-9months old
Current OS intallation is about a week old

Not sure if I zipped the required files correctly, first time I tried it

Thanks in advance

A:BSOD once after long period shutdown

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums,

I would first uninstall AVG - including Identity Protection. AVG and third party anti-virus can cause conflicts and cause BSOD. Once you're done removing AVG, use this removal tool to remove all the left overs: AVG - Download tools

Use Microsoft Security Essentials as replacement: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Next, update this 2005 ASUS Driver (read the note for the instruction)

fffff880`03f47000 fffff880`03f4f000 ASACPI ASACPI.sys Mon Mar 28 15:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)

The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Never noticed a problem until recently (last five days or so), when I've been keeping my pc booted for a longer period of time (more than 24 hours). Every time I come back, I have some kind of BSOD, either Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, or memory_management.

The only thing I've done to it in the past two weeks is run Windows Update (which I had been putting off for a little while, seemed like mostly security updates though).

- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
- Asus motherboard
- hardware is 2-3 years old
- install is since release


A:bsod, after long period of powered on

Welcome to SF!

First thing you need to do is memorize your unique Customer Identification Number (CIN), and Thread Identification Number (TIN)

CIN: 101255
TIN: 105037

Just kidding.

First thing, install the latest ATK0110 Utility for XP/Vista/7 from here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

Search for your motherboard model, M2N32. The full model of your mobo is M2N32 SLI Deluxe.

Also, install these latest nForce drivers: NVIDIA DRIVERS 15.53 WHQL

I'm hoping that works, because I'm having trouble finding drivers for your Silicon Image hard drive controller!

If that doesn't work, enable driver verifier: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Then upload the new dumps files. We no longer need the full jcgriff2 report, only the dumps, from now on in this thread.

Hi there, I normally leave my computer on overnight so I could do things such as defragging, virus scans and sometimes downloading.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, which I installed 3 days ago as I got a new hard drive. The system was blue screening since then, so I'm guessing it's not a faulty hard drive, OS or memory (Replaced memory and done 20 hours of memtest86+)

I bought this machine about 7 months ago, but since then I have replaced the motherboard, memory, graphics card, CPU cooler and hard drive.

It only seems to bluescreen when idle, like when all it's doing is downloading on uTorrent or has finished doing a defrag.

According to bluescreenview, it has been caused by dxgkrnl.sys, atikmpag.sys and dxgmms1.sys . It was these causing it before the reinstall as well.

A:BSOD when idle for a long period of time.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

I have received multiple BSOD errors on my PC over a prolonged period of time and am hoping someone can finally help to resolve these.

They occur regularly on my PC and vary from once a day to 5-10 times a day.
I usually have multiple pages open on either Microsoft Edge Browser or Mozilla Firefox but nothing else.

If someone can have a look at the attached debug file which I have pulled off to advise and offer any assistance that would be great.

A:Multiple BSOD errors over a long period!

I don't work here but I would personally verify drivers from the manufacturers, as well as the graphics card. I just got done addressing a similar issue and it turned out to be a combination of hardware (i had a memory module go bad) and a driver didn't wanna update automatically.

That a gfx card from an old build? :P Oh I can tell you now as well they will want you to update your system specs that are shown in the drop down menu. GOOD LUCK!!! AXEO is awesome!!!

I've attached the SF tool dumps

A:BSOD after long period of inactivity [dxhrkl, dxgmms1 and nviddmkm]

It could have been Windows Update that required the computer to restart after installing an update...very common. Look through the Update history to confirm that.

Did the computer physically blue screen? It doesn't sound like it from your description.

Anyway, this is a brand new APU build. I've only had the computer for a few days now, anytime I try and play Dayz for example after a good amount of time it will just BSOD on me, after a restart and lets say you try and launch the game again, it will BSOD during the loading process. If you try and run lets say two games at once, it'll BSOD after a little while. I have a strong feeling it's a heat issue with the stock heatsink, and I have a 212 evo coming Monday, so I would hope that would be the cause but to make sure I rather ask some other people.
I know for a fact this stock heatsink isn't able to cool this chip, because you can check Core Temp, or Speecy, and the chip is at around 70C+ which of course you panic and kind of lay off of it for a little bit, a few days ago I actually believe it hit 93C before I shut the computer down. That's way too hot, so I do believe the majority of these BSOD are heat related, but it could be heat and driver related possibly as well?

Anyway here are my computer specifications as well...
Motherboard: GA-F2A85XM-D3H
Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) CORSAIR Vengeance 1600Mhz
CPU: AMD A8-6500 GFX Radeon 8570D
Hard drive: 320GB Seagate 7200RPM
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W

Currently chip temp with just the internet browser open is literally 68C, I think these BSOD are heat related...What do you think? I am pretty certain, lol

I have included the ZIP of the dump files and such, as stated per sticky thread.

Hi, this is my first time posting here in this forum because I am in desperate need of help on my computer. My computer gets at least ONCE BSOD every time I turn it on after a long period of shutdown. It also sometimes randomly just shuts off or give me additional BSODs. It has got to the point that I can't even load to windows recently, which lead me to reformat my computer. I know the drivers here are not the latest ones, I am trying to use only the drivers from the CDs that came with the hardwares because the last time I used all the latest ones it still caused BSODs.

I have 300GB of my hard drive partitioned off for backups, and I periodically do a backup on an external hard drive. I haven't had a problem with this setup until a few days ago, when my backup space completely filled. This wasn't typically a problem; I'd just delete some old backup periods and move on. Now, however, I discovered that my backup period is 3/27/11 through today, and I can't delete that or I lose my entire backup. (Before anyone asks, I do save only the most recent system image.)

Is there any way to manually control the backup period time to prevent this from happening in the future? I'll solve my immediate problem by extending my backup partition until I can delete an old backup period, but I'd like to prevent this from happening.


A:Backup Period Too Long

My experience has been that Windows (file/folder) backup will continue to add to the existing backup set until at some point it decides to create an additional new backup set.
- A reimage will trigger a new backup set.
- Change of backup location will trigger a new backup set
- deleting all existing backups will trigger a new backup set
Apart from these observations I don't know what algorithm Windows uses to trigger new backup sets.

It's clumsy, but you can use "Change settings" to toggle between two backup partition locations to achieve what I think you want.

Windows backup (excluding images!) adds incrementally to the set. If your sets are getting too large then you probably need to prune off some of the more static data using simple drag and drop to a location and exclude this from the normal backup set.

Gaming LCD's

I am wondering what the best lcd monitor for gaming is. I am hooking this up to dual 7800 gt's and want to take advantage of this by buying a premium monitor. I know that for gaming lower response time is better and that native resolution should be relatively high, any help would be appreciated. By the way, im looking to spend around $500.

A:The BEST gaming lcd...period

For $500 you could easily buy any high-end 17" LCD. And for 19", $500 will get you a pretty good one, if not a great one. LCD prices are changing so rapidly.

But if you get a 19", make sure it suits some basic things first, like the type of connection. Is it DVI? Does it match your vid card outputs? Getting a digital signal is the first thing to look for. Then make sure it handles your favorite resolution. For 19" this would be like 1280x1024 or even 1600x1200.
After this, the best thing to do is find a site that runs comparisons on LCDs. Select the 3 to 5 or so that you like best and compare side to side. You'll see who has quicker response times, brighter picture, more features etc...
PCWorld has such comparrisons, check tomshardware.com, then just do some googling.

Couldn't say what is the "BEST..period". Some people would say only CRTs can be the best.

Hi team,

In the last couple of weeks, my HD is on 100% very often (in the task manager). This seems to be happen randomly and it usually stops in about 5-15 minutes, but sometimes it doesn't stop at all and I need to restart my computer.
I couldn't identify when exactly it happens and it looks random. When it happens the computer becomes very very slow and unresponsive and when it stops everything goes back to normal. Of course I tried to close all running apps when it happens to see if it helps, but it's no use.

It looks like some kind of malware or something else is doing something in the background.

I have a HTPC and it is set to sleep when switched off or when the system is on Idle for more than 15 minutes.
Up to an hour or so after I turn the PC off the remote IR reciever has no issues waking it up.
But by the next morning nothing other than a restart seems to wake the PC up. It then also places an error in the event log to say that it was unexpectidly shut down by me restarting the PC.
So it would appear that it wasn't truly off.
I have removed the Hybernate as an option so it should not be abe hibernate.

Is there a way to tell what's going on. I believe some mother boards or settings in bios put the PC into a deeper sleep , if so how can i check and fix this issue.

Hello everyone.

I know there are tons of threads like this, but nothing seem to work for me, plus, my situation is a little different:
I got this laptop after it lay unused for about a year, and all the posts I saw were talking about a laptop that suddenly stopped working.

Basically it won't turn on. Nothing at all happens when I push the power button (no fan/HDD activity/flashing of lights - Nothing). The power cable+socket seems to be working because when I initially plugged it in the "charging battery" light went on, and stayed on for a few hours, I assume while the battery charged. Now it won't turn on when I unplug-plug the power cable, but if the power cable is plugged in, and I push power while holding Enter, it does flash for a moment.

Things I tried:
1. Removing power+battery, holding power button for 60 seconds.
2. Reseating RAM, HDD, CD-ROM.
3. Trying to power up without HDD.
4. Disassembling the laptop with the help of a service manual and taking out and plugging in the screen+keyboard+touchpad connectors, removing the heatsink to verify that the CPU is firmly in place and putting it back.

There seems to be a battery called "Reserve battery" - what is it for? Maybe it went flat?

Anyone has any idea what I can try next?

A:Dell D505 does not power up (after long unused period)

The reserve battery is probably run down. See this link:

Running Windows Embedded Standard 2009.
Motherboard: Giada HM77T-i3

When booting into Safe mode, the system will get stuck on the classpnp.sys. Anyway to find out what exactly is causing the system to get stuck on classpnp.sys?

This problem occurs with MSATA, SSD and standard HDs. This problem occurs on more than one system.

The longer the system runs for, the longer the boot time gets. If I re-image the drive, the boot time goes back to 30 seconds. If I let it run for 2-3 weeks, then the boot time starts getting longer. It starts at 2 minutes and then climbs up to 60 minutes the longer the system runs for.

I tried the following:
Loading AV software and scan.
chkdsk /f
Loaded Regcure Pro
Updated the BIOS
Updated Video card drivers.

Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

A:System gets stuck for long period on the classpnp.sys file.

John, welcome to the TSG Forums

You posted this in the XP Forum. You are running XP ? The reason that I ask is that I have seen this problem often with W7 but very seldom with XP, so I am just wondering if you posted in the right Forum.

The classpnp.sys file is the Windows SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) system file and is a critical part of the Windows boot process. Typically when problems are experienced with this file they are often associated with devices such as CD/DVD drive, Hard Drive or other SCSI hardware.

It is common for problems to occur after installing new hardware or software, specifically software that may access the CD/DVD drive. Think back to a time when you did not have this problem and try to recall what hardware or software you have installed subsequent to that time.

but not after a short period?

Hello to all

I have set up a windows 7 x64 machine as a file server for my htpc in the lounge.
Now to save pennies i have set it to sleep at night and then wake in the mornings so its up and ready for the music and movies to be present for the htpc.

Now if i manually run the scheduled task to set the machine to sleep and set the wake schedule for ten minutes later, it wakes fine. But if i run the schedule as it should at night, the system never wakes in the morning and neither will the mouse let me? i have to press the power button for it to come back to life like its hibernating. But i have disabled hibernate using the following link.

Hey everyone,

I had quite the confusing issue on my hands. I believe it to be hardware related but i could be wrong. I had recently built a system and installed Windows 7 on it. Everything appeared to work flawlessly. The only issue is if the computer is off for an extended period of time (thinking around 4+ hours) it will reboot itself before it can enter the login screen (although it does make it to the loading screen).

After a lot of troubleshooting, i realized that simply flipping the switch on and off on the back of the power supply will allow it to boot into windows fine. Also, using the repair utility on windows will let me boot in fine too (without reseting the power supply manually i believe).

I thought it may have been a power supply issue but i have replaced it with a higher wattage, high end one and the issue still occurs. The Ram is checking out OK too.

The only thing i can think of is that there is an issue with the motherboard. I assume when the system is off the motherboard still has power since the keyboard light remains on. It seems i need to kill the power to the board completely.

Or maybe this is a Windows 7 issue since its relatively new?

The fact that this only occurs if the system is off for 4+ hours really puzzles me. Besides this one error the system runs beautifully.

I am really at a loss here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

A:Computer restarts on login if shutdown for long period of time

Read other 6 answers

I have read multiple threads from this website and others with no real answer on how to fix this issue, so I apologize for starting another thread about it. The web is littered with so many people still having this issue...

I just recently updated. I then created a boot disk and performed a clean install. I use a Razor Black Widow Ultimate keyboard and a Logitech G9x laser mouse. I can reboot, I can shut down and restart and everything seems to work fine. But, after leaving the pc off all night and start in the morning I have no mouse or keyboard. This has happened Saturday morning, Sunday morning and yet again today. Fortunately, I have Acronis backup of my install, so when this happens I just re-image the hard drive and start searching for solutions again.

Any thoughts on how to fix this problem?

I have the latest Logitech mouse drivers and running Razor Synapse for keyboard software.

The latest thing I have done is disable fast boot but have not had it shut down long enough to see if it fixes the issue.



A:Mouse and keyboard stop working after long period of pc being shutdown

Here is a list of things I have done in hopes of fixing this issue:
disable legacy USB in bios
disabled fast boot
installed latest Intel chipset
installed latest set point drivers

are any of the above a waste of time or is anything above one of the suggested fixes?

*Meant to title this "Periodic lag spikes while gaming on wireless internet"

I've searched high and low and still can't find a fix for this.

I just moved into a new place and I'm stuck with wireless internet. I used to play various FPS games while my PC was hardwired and I never had a problem like this.

Thing is, every minute or so, I get a large lag spike where the game will freeze for about a second or two. Connection is not dropped, just lags. I've contacted Dynex (makers of my wireless adapter) and they're convinced it's not the adapter.

I've been running a ping against Google using "ping www.google.com -t" to see what my connection is like. The results are very consistent. 30-35 pings at 50ms-55ms, then a ping for 1900ms-2200ms, a ping for 260-280ms, and then back to the 50-55ms pings.

Dynex also had me ping an address ( I think) and of the four packets it sent, there was no data loss.

I've also disabled the Wireless Zero Config to no avail. I'm at a loss, any help would be great.

Model: Dell XPS 15 9560
Processor: Intel Core i7-7700HQ 2.8GHz
RAM: 16Gb DDR4
GPU: GTX1050 (Intel HD630 Integrated)
OS: Windows 10

So this has been an issue with my PC pretty much since I got it back in September however has just recently gotten so bad that it can't be ignored. When running a large program such as Counter Strike or Rocket League the game will run fine at around 190fps/150fps respectively however shortly after will drop to an apparent '60fps' however it is extremely laggy and looks more like 10. This occasionally will fix itself for around a minute then break again. Recently though it will not fix and the whole computer system will lag until the application is closed. It will then take up to 5 minutes for the PC to run normally again.

At first I thought it was a thermal issue but have downloaded multiple PC monitoring programs and found this not to be the case. CPU and GPU sit at around 70C / 60C. I have reinstalled and updated drivers including the integrated graphics driver and have factory reset my PC 3 times. Nothing seems to work.

A:BSOD twice in 24 hr period could be several things

Hi hunttom.

The crash dump is not saying anything precisely. Though a stop 0x3B is usually either a failing device driver (mostly graphics driver) or failing memory. So ......

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.

A:A long lasting gaming and multipurpose rig?

that all sounds rather reasonable and be a great running machine over all... my only note would be the 8gb of ram would be more than adequate maybe 16 if you want some bragging rights and really wanna never run out but 32 imo is a little over kill but hey i cant say much cuz i have an urge to run the max of 32 in my laptop lol but 16 is running awesome for me.

anyways lol good choice on cpu and video card good bang for your buck. OS wise i dont see why 64 bit ultimate wont do everything you need and with the cpu/ ram choice you can always have a virtual machine of xp and would still run pretty well. and last suggestion or maybe we will just call it an observation.. would you plan on keeping your games on your main drive (a ssd?) or on secondary (normal hdd) because you could save a little by going down to lets say a 100 gb and install main applications (office photoshop or what ever you plan to use) and then just have games go to secondary.

but all in all looks pretty good i would be excited to get a rig with any of the said parts

I have tried unsuccessfully to understand and correct the multiple BSOD I have been having since may 2010 on this particular system.
I have had the x58a-udr3 MB replaced RMA, may this year. I have had the ram replaced and have removed every device to the bear minimum and am still having some BOSD's.
I have recently bought a Corsair Force 3 sata III 120GB SSD. I have applied the recommended firmware 1.3 update in the hope that this might correct the situation.
Before anyone jumps in with the normal procedure of memtest and verifier.exe. I have done this all. I have replaced and renewed up to this day, all drivers.
I did have a 1 bay removable HDD rack which I used to run a Seagate 1.5TB & 1TB hard drives, which I have removed as a possible problem, I have noticed strange noises and sometimes a lag in response for the particular HDD rack and suspected the racks little sata controller interface. I have also turned off the USB 3.0 in the Bios to see if that eliminates the problem.
I have tried several other forums Gigabyte and Corsair etc with no luck and I find with google searches that I always end up here in this forum with some interesting aspects and advice on BSOD's. But not specific to my problem.
I hope you can help me.

Hello all,

I have a laptop Acer 5739 G and I reinstalled my Windows 7 x64 about 3 weeks ago and since then I've had this error occur several times. I usually leave my computer in sleep mode overnight, but lately when I start it again it gives me the black screen of "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" where I have to select "star windows normally".

The last time it happened was this morning. I put my laptop to sleep at 0:30 am and turned it on this morning at 8:03 when I saw the "unexpected shutdown" screen.

Then after looking through Event Viewer I found an error message about an error that has occurred at 6:21 am while it was sleeping. Here's the message:


Then I looked through the forums for a possible solution, but didn't find anything so I'm making this thread.

I also followed the BSOD posting instructions and have the zip file attached.

I hope I've given enough info for a solution to be found.

A:BSOD after longer sleep period

Your files indicate that your problem is a driver, but did not give the source. Driver verifier will help us determine if the problem is indeed a driver and which one.
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is t... Read more

I'm specifically focused on the three most recent crashes (Codes 3b, 24, and 1e) . There should be a lot more in there because my system seems to bug-check if I leave it idle for more than 20-30 seconds, but my computer wasn't creating .dmp files until I ran chkdsk with both options selected.

Let me know if you need any further info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Several Different BSOD Errors - Short Time Period


Read other 1 answers

Hello Everyone,
I have an on going ATA deployment, where the customer wants to know, the possibility of having the logs / event retained for 1 year and an approximate idea on the impact of storage and any limitations for MongoDB.
As per the ATA sizing tool and article the requirement of ATA center falls in the below specification.

Packets per second from all DCs

CPU (cores*)

Memory (GB)

Database storage per day (GB)

Database storage per month (GB)







2,000 (2,500)

So we have a approx. storage requirement of 3.6 TB per month, so how long are the logs/event on ATA center kept by default and can we change the retention period for the same.
Thank you,

Iqbal Johar

This is kind of tricky and I usually don't get stumped by things like this... so this is literally driving me crazy.
I custom built my computer about a year or so ago and after ironing out some mobo flashing issues, everything has been fine until just recently.
My setup is
-4th gen i5 processor
-980ti gfx card
-A SeaSonic 750w semi-modular power supply.
-Windows 10
-8gb of ram
I haven't installed any new drivers; holding off on the new nvidia ones because they're bricking cards. I've checked the temps of my GPU and CPU, everything's normal. I did virus scans, nothing showed up.
The way I have my computer set up is an SSD (C:) with my os and everything set up on it, then some repurposed hard drives that I have attached to my computer via USB (D:, F:, H:). I noticed this problem a couple of days ago when I was playing a game off of my H: drive. After a few hours of playing the game, everything started to seize, hang and lock up. The computer was still semi-usable if I could get the game to close, but after a while of just using the computer regularly, it would start to lock up while doing pretty simple tasks. I tried removing the H: drive, it's an older drive that ran at 5400 rpm, and I moved some games over a different drive. I tested it out to see if it worked and it didn't change anything. The only hint as to what's going on is the fact that when my computer locks up, my resource manager is saying there's massive amounts of data being written to t... Read more
