Alright, this is a topic pulled from the Windows 7 forum that I believe I can point toward hardware now (sadly D:)
Some back story. This system is from a few months back, right at the launch of Ivy Bridge. Everything worked perfectly
until about a week and a half ago. I am running a completely fresh install of Win7 Ultimate 64bit.
Heres the problem. Applications seem to randomly crash.
A game called Aion will crash only after login and character
selection. Game reports nv3ddum.dll as the culprit usually. (gpu problem?)
Eve Online only crashes when two clients are up. One client runs perfectly fine. (Makes me think gpu again..vram?)
Google Chrome will crash rarely upton startup, but never after. Flash within Chrome however will crash randomly.
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim runs fine for about an hour. Then the game will simply close. No idea what that means.
I haven't got any bluescreens (though just before my clean install, I'd have loads of them (still got the dumps if intrested))
...just that I can't seem to do the things I want.
Tested both RAM modules at the same time with memtest86+. Full 7 passes, no errors. I also pulled a ram stick out
one at a time to check if the problem persists. It does.
Also something to note, I can't complete the Windows experience index. Ever. Infact, every time I do,
it crashes at the same point. Direct3D 10 Texture test. Hope that helps anything.
Another thing to note, two reboots (updates) after my windows install, chkdsc ran itself and deleted and restored
what seemed to be quite a few items. Not sure what it was about but it no longer does that and chkdsc reports
i5 2570k @ 4.4Ghz
eVGA gtx680 Superclocked
ASUS Maximus V Gene
OCZ Agility 3 60gb (boot drive)
Seagate Barracuda 1tb (storage)
G Skill Ripjaws X (8gbx2)
Thanks to anyone that can help me
