For the past 2 weeks I have been unable to game on my computer due to BSODs which happen anywhere between 1 minute and 1.5 hours of gaming. Sometimes, I can game fine up until I decide to test the waters and turn on Pandora. When I do, The sound loops (so rapidly it's practically a buzz), the computer freezes, and then the BSOD appears. The messages on the BSOD have varied. Sometimes it is "KERNEL_INPAGE_DATA_ERROR" other times, "KERNEL_DATA_ERROR", and sometimes those two don't show up but it is some other error. I should also mention that there are times when the computer doesn't even BSOD at all but instead isn't able to load certain textures in a game I am playing, eventually resulting in a game freeze. But when I Ctrl+alt+del, I receive an error message "Unable to display security and shutdown options." and my entire taskbar and sidebar are completely gone. I then try to double-click the Chrome browser and the message is something to the effect of "this file has moved, would you like to delete this shortcut?" (I'm a little shoddy on that message though so I don't know the exact wordage). This all seems to have begun a couple months ago when my computer would sometimes BSOD when shutting down or going into sleep mode due to idling. It didn't happen very often, and, to be honest, I procrastinated on fixing the issue. Now the problems have gotten much worse, but the weird thing is, the BSODs don't happen on shut down anymore, though I have had a couple shut-down freezes where the computer would be stuck on the "shutting down" screen with the little circle spinning eternally.
I have run a full scan of MalwareBytes twice, and 2 full scans with AVG and 1 full scan with Norton Antivirus (I uninstalled AVG and installed a partition of Norton 360 from my mother). Each scan found nothing, except for the first Malwarebytes one which only found 3 issues, nothing major though.
I installed HijackThis and recorded a log. My computer comes up with a "Physical Memory Dump FAILED" message each time so BSOD logs don't seem to work. (The last WhoCrashed log is from september, and that was a shutdown BSOD) I don't really know how to properly log BSOD's though so if you need that information I will work on learning how to do that. I cannot run chkdsk as when I reboot (after it schedules the scan) the scan is immediately cancelled without me pressing anything and without any form of countdown. When I try to run chkstfs, I get no confirmation messages for any functions, and /r, /p are not recognized. And yes, I run everything in admin.
Before I post the log I will run down the list of potentially eliminated possibilities:
Overheating: my computer runs at 28C.
Hardware issue: I ran HD Tune Pro, and did a full scan, there were no errors. I do not believe there is a videocard error as I can watch movies, netflix, and youtube all day with no problems.
sfc /scannow came up with 0 errors/issues.
This is my current comp spec:
Intel i5-2500k CPU @ 3.30 GHz
Nvidia GEforce GTX 570
Gigabyte Motherboard: Z68A-D3-B3
Windows 7 64bit
Seagrams 1TB HD
Anyway, here's the HijackThis log - Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to review this.
