I've been having this problem on my custom built computer since this morning. This started when I received advice from ASRock tech support to reset my UEFI settings to default to fix an unrelated problem. I did that, and ever since then, my computer's stability has plummeted.
- OS - Windows 7 Professional
- Architecture - x64
- What was the original OS? - There was none, this is a custom built.
- OEM or retail? - Technically retail but it says OEM on the box.
- Age of hardware - A week as of today
- Age of OS - Reinstalled as of today
- CPU - AMD FX-8350 (Not overclocked)
- GPU - EVGA Geforce GTX 950 (/w DVI to VGA adapter)
- Motherboard - ASRock Fatal1ty 970 Performance
- Power Supply - EVGA 500 Watt
- Manufacturer and model number - N/A, custom built
- Laptop/Desktop - Desktop
The system isn't stable enough to run Sysnative BSOD Dump in normal mode in its entirety. The system blue screened during the "Waiting for tasks to complete" phase. Attached is the zipped up incomplete dump as well as a fresh one taken during safe mode (/w networking).
I've tried updating drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling video drivers, disabling video drivers, reinstalling Windows, and messing with UEFI settings.
Memtest86 shows 0 errors. Video Memory stress Test (VMT.exe) shows many errors when doing a full scan. The odd thing is that it's not reliable. Sometimes it shows errors, sometimes it triggers a blue screen, sometimes it completes with nothing wrong. OCCT's gpu memtest feature, however, consistently shows 0 errors.
The only thing that seems to make the computer any sort of stable is putting it in safe mode. I'd try taking out the video card, but my motherboard doesn't have on board graphics.
