built a new PC and installed Win 8.1 and updated it all.

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/s4AK5C6zNUVqlIYOPjkGncw

 

minidump file zip

 

https://www.mediafire.com/?5jtz00ulfjo5170

 

could only get access to 1/2 of the files ?

 

also attached is output of last 10 errors from mini tool box.

 

I am going to run 10 Pass memory test overnight to see if there are any errors with the memory.

 

Did speak to guy where i bought the components and his idea was to do full wipe and reinstall of windows.

I do try and leave this to last ditch attempt.

 

Thanks for all and any help or advice.

 

 

Ross.

That error message could be an indicator of a CPU issue, often easily fixed by installing the Windows 8.1 chipset driver from the motherboard's manufacturer website --- have you tried that?.  I happened to learn this one the hard way when I recently upgraded my motherboard and processor.

it's an NVIDIA n630a chipset.

I installed the latest drivers off the Nvidia website

as neither

 

ASRock or NVIDIA do not have windows 8 drivers for this mobo.

I installed the windows 7 64 bit chipset driver.

Hi

 

"Speccy" is detecting your CPU as FX- 4130. Interestingly that CPU doesn't seems to be on the supported processors list. 

 

http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-GS%20FX/?cat=CPU

 

Looks like you are using an unsupported CPU ( and of course an unsupported OS too ). There is a beta BIOS listed on the download page. You might want to give it a try ( updating BIOS is a risky process ).

 

http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-GS%20FX/index.asp?cat=Beta

 

 

 

 

I installed the windows 7 64 bit chipset driver.

 

Bad idea. "Windows 8" came with generic drivers for old chipsets. Installing drivers designed for another OS should be done as a last resort.

Chrome version Version 34.0.1847.116 m

 

no easy roll back as no restore points before installing the win 7 nforce driver.

I am sure it did blue screen before i installed this driver and I tried to install this as a fix.

 

this leaves the Bios update even tho BIOS does identify the correct processor.

I will have a look at that over weekend most likely when i have the time to get down on my knees

and flash bios whilst praying to the god of BIOS upgrades. lol.

Bit the bullet and just finished re-build 

 

this leaves flash bios as last resort i think.

 

BIOS does recognise correct processor so not sure if this is a problem or not.

so fresh 8.1 build with apps and gforce driver installed.

What is your power supply make and model?

 

That 4130 cpu is 125 watt and the motherboard looks to only support 95. http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-GS%20FX/?cat=CPU

 

It still might work if you underclock the processor and disable turbo core. Bring it down to 3.5 ghz or even 3.2. Watch your temps closely as you are really pushing that motherboard. 

 

You may have to consider getting a mobo with 125 watt cpu support.

PSU is 750W

 

yeah seems like Mobo is not suitable for processor.

 

taking this up with supply co.

 

fresh rebuild and still getting the same clock watchdog timeout error.
