    So, that was a waste of time, we are back to hardware.
    I just had a random re boot!!
    No BSOD as i hadn't unchecked the 'automatic restart' option.
    I've hardly done anything so...............................back to that tedious task of testing one thing at a time.

      Broni, i did, but haven't had a BSOD since, typical, i almost want one now!  ;D

      After a few minutes of start up this morning i got a Windows error pop up,

      'The system has recovered form a serious error'

      File attached.

      BTW, why can't i open these .dmp files??
      Seems a bit strange that windows makes them but wont open them?

        How old is this computer?

        Do you have another video card that you can swap in there to rule that out as the culprit?

        At this point my money is on the power supply being defective.

          It's a self build so no particular age as i have changed things as needed.
          Mobo about 2005
          Same with most other bits PSU, one stick of RAM etc.
          I have an inferior psu that came with the case, is it worth trying that then if it becomes stable get a decent one??

          It does seem a bit odd all these different goings on.

          Looking at the price of stuff nowadays (old git) it may pay to start again.

          A flakey PSU can cause all sorts of problems. If your motherboard is underpowered, you will get a host of errors.

            Bugger.
            I bought a decent one expecting it to last till i die.
            Is 4 years a good life for a psu?

            The second attached file contains some 3d6e_appcompat.txt, not .dmp file, so I can't read it.
            The first one gives an error in NVENETFD.sys file, which is NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller Driver.

              Cheers Broni.
              Giving it a good test at the mo, downloading, burning dvd's etc, i've said it before but at the mo all is fine.
              I shall give it a couple more days, see what happens.
              There is plenty of room in the bin!  ;D
              I'm not sure but it feels like it is settling down if there is such a thing with these strange creatures.

                Hey all.
                I'm back.
                I was right no to report all is well (I wanted to give it a month, didn't quite make it!)
                Nearly a month after formatting and the BSOD's are back with a vengance.
                Two today within an hour of each other.
                The second happened trying to do a Avast virus scan but of course it may have happened without the scan.
                I have attached three files found in my mini dump folder.
                Oh JOY!!

                Cheers.

                Just looked back over system restore, the only thing installed before the BSOD's is Medal Of Honour Allied Assault.
                That has been on my computer for many years, could an update of some sort have caused the problems before my format?
                Does anyone know of any issues?
                Just a thought..........................

                One error is the old one, we talked about already.
                The new one (for some reason, I can open only one .dmp file), list DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL @ psched.sys (MS QoS Packet Scheduler).
                It's hard to diagnose anything from one error, but from what I've read, the error may be caused  by some conflict between security programs, or bad NIC card.
                I'd like to check something....

                  Hi Broni.
                  Feels like old times!!  :)
                  Here is the hijack this log file.
                  I have given up trying to 'fix' things, it must be something i'm doing but what?
                  Thanks for trying.
                  Cheers.
