(I don't use English in my real life, so sorry for any lingual mistakes.)
Hello everyone. I have two problems with my PC. It likes to randomly restart from time to time. Sometimes when I browse the web, sometimes when I play a game.
Second problem shows up when I play games. Ocassionally I can play for an hour without problem, but another time game CTD's after five minutes three times in a row. It happens with almost every title I own.
My PC specs are:
CPU - i5 661 3.33GHz LGA1156 Box
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H Intel H55 LGA 1156 (with latest bios installed - one of my futile attempts to fix my problem)
GPU - Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD7850 2GB/256 bit PCI-E OC
OS- Windows 7 64bit, full retail - I reinstalled it after a format few months ago (again - I was trying everything I can do to fix it)
Power Supply - Zalman ZM600-GT 600W
I own this PC for almost 3 years now. GPU and PSU are 1 year old, because I upgraded it. Problems with BSOD's and CTD's happened on my old configuration, but it didn't bother me that much back then.
All the fans are working, I ran CPU and RAM testing software a while ago without any bad results. I used temperature monitoring tools while playing games, and it never showed even a sign of overheating.
I have no idea what could be the cause of these crashes. Maybe it's a hardware issue, but I don't really know how to determine which part could be broken.
Finally - I made this dump zip file as described in the tutorial for posting bsod problems. I'm not entirely sure I've done it right, because both programs were open for 30 minutes and one that starts using " BSOD_W8-7-Vista_v2.64_jcgriff2_.exe
" file showed waiting for system info line constatnly. I closed both programs and put the folder in the archive.
Anyway - hope somebody helps me. I'm ready to cooperate.
