    Custom windows 7 pc keeps crashing
    « on: September 29, 2014, 08:47:42 PM »
    looking for some help here guys with an issue that's been driving me insane,

    my compute ris a custom built rig mostly for gaming and since I built it ive had nothing but problems. It crashes randomly , no blue screen just straight out crashes and restarts. sometimes its fine for days and sometimes its back to back every 10 minutes. it crashes more frequently when im playing games like arma 3 and other games.

    I ran memtest 86 before and everything was ok but replaced the ram anyway, replaced the HD, graphics card and power supply (adequate for the rig) the case is open and plenty cool so its not over heating but it still just crashes when it wants to. Ive run WhoCrashed on my dump files and the crashes are always simililar. below ill put my specs and some fo the dump file readouts.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, reply here or you can find me on my Team Speak 108.61.46.211:7060 usually after 830pm cetral time under the name Morgan Freeman

    heres the specs and dump info

    AMD FX-4170 4.2 ghz quad core
    8gig ram
    Geforce GTX760 2gig
    Forgot the exact model of MB but its an ASROCK
    upgraded power supply
    1tb HD

    and heres some of the dump file readouts

      First, try using another keyboard and try using different ports for it.
      you may want to even try using another mouse as well.
      Read this article: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000646.htm

      If the article doesn't help then you can try a few things

      I would unplug everything except for the

      mouse, keyboard, power, video connector.
      (remember to unplug the lan cable) NIc can make your computer go bonkers if there is some sort of voltage/thermal issue with the motherboard.

      Make sure your ram is seated correctly

      Are you overcloecked? if so reduce your clocks to stock. For both video card and cpu. 

      Make sure hibernation is off, infact, dont run any reduced power settings in windows.

      There may be power fluctuations in your house make sure the pc isnt sharing the same outlet with a bunch of other stuff.

      make sure no apps are running other than your  anti-virus/firewall. type msconfig in the run/search. Only go to startup tab and let your av and video card software stay. Apply and restart.


      If none of this works try removing the ram and only stick on module in. try the different slots.

      You may also want to find a mobo tempture monitoring software. the cpu  is not the only thing prone to over heat. the north /south bridges etc also can overheat.

      I would try to find the exact make and model of your mobo.
      It is also possible that the case and mobo are touching eachother in such a way as to create an electrical problem.

      Please provide the exact model of your motherboard plz.

      PLease provide exact ram you bought and specifics of  each component.

      A bios update for the mobo may be needed but i wouldn't do that just yet.

      You keep mentioning that you "upgraded the power supply" to one that is "adequate" - What make/model is this?  A bad PSU can cause random crashes like this.

      Also, for proper cooling you should leave the case closed and have suitable intake/exhaust fans, leaving it open will harm the airflow through the machine.
