I was wondering whether someone would be able to take a look at these dumps for me. I'm still learning about debugging and I wouldn't trust my knowledge at this point
I've just built a new PC and it's developed a nasty habit of BSODing. I'm fairly sure it's to do with the graphics card because it always BSODs when I try to run something that is GPU accelerated.
Here's my specs if it matters:
CPU: i7 3770K @ 4.7GHz
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 (2GB)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB LP (White)
Hard Drive: SeaGate Baraccuda 2TB 7200rpm
Cooling: Corsair H100 Water Cooler
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Monitor: 23" LG LCD/LED IPS Monitor (1920*1080)
Power: Corsair TX650W V2 (80+ Bronze)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410
Might be the infamous AMD drivers, but I'm running the latest version of them, so there's not a lot I can do on that front.
I've overclocked to 4.7GHz but I'm just about to go back to the stock CPU speeds and voltages to make sure the problem doesn't lie there, but I thought I might as well post these first.
Another issue I have occasionally, I'm not sure if it's related but I might as well post it anyway, every now and then (with obvious pattern) my screen will just go a grey/blue colour with lines across it. Again, I don't know if it's related, but it can't hurt to post it
Thanks in advance for any help!
Edit: Oops, I didn't use John's BSOD collection tool - you can really tell I'm new to this :lol: If anyone wants that information then I can upload it.
2nd Edit: I also should've noted that the first half of those dumps were from overclocking experiments (mainly, lack of voltage), so I don't think they'll show anything that's of use.
We're seeing various different bugchecks here, mostly PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. There's mention of a D1 DRIVER_IRQL, but I am going to say your issue is likely hardware given the amount of hardware / memory corruption mentions in all of these dump files. The latest however is a x124 hardware BSOD, and if I am reading !cpuinfo correctly, it was at stock clocks (3500MHz). It could be software, and it may be... I don't trust those Asus utilities, but we'll find out soon.
First thing I am going to recommend doing is completely clearing the CMOS to ensure that everything is truly back to to stock clocks and values. After that, adjust your memory timings and such as advertised if need be. I'm then going to recommend running Memtest to be sure your RAM is not the culprit here:
I recommend no less than 6-7 passes. This will take multiple hours, so I recommend running before work or sleep.
If Memtest comes up clean, since you mentioned the odd gray lines and such that sometimes happen, run Furmark for 10-15 minutes and see how your GPU reacts to the load. Make sure there are no artifacts, obvious BSODs / freezes, etc. Also, keep a close watch on the temps. Furmark is a stress testing client moreso than its advertised benchmarking capabilities, so things get really hot. If you see the video card get higher than ~90c, hit ESC to end the test.
If the system is at stock settings now, you might not BSOD if the issue was unstable OC(s), of course. I was under the impression you were at stock the entire time, but keep me updated whether or not this happens regardless!
