Let's try looking at these 2 sets of reports:
Report Set #1) Please run this report collecting tool (even though you may not be experiencing BSOD's) so that we can provide a complete analysis: (from the pinned topic at the top of the forum) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/
If you have problems with it running it, there's an alternate tool here (direct download link): https://github.com/blueelvis/BSOD-Inspector/releases/download/1.0.5/BSODInspector-1.0.5.exe
Please zip up the (.ZIP) files - do not use .RAR or other compression utilities.
.ZIP is the type file that can be uploaded to the forums.
Report Set #2) Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504
The Event ID 41 error is simply Windows saying that it doesn't know why it shutdown.
While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with one of these free utilies:
While waiting for a reply, check to make sure:
- that the system is free of dust/dirt by blowing out the vents with canned air (DO NOT USE an air compressor or a vacuum - it can physically damage the system)
- keeping track of the temperatures (particularly the video). Use one of these free utilities:
- ensure that the system is only used on a hard surface with the sides and back being free of obstructions. If possible, try using a laptop cooling pad
- Please run these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
These are the tests and what we usually see for the reports:
1 - Antivirus/antimalware scans: In short, if there are Trojans or other serious malware - start over in the Am I Infected forums
2 - Memory diagnostics: Run MemTest86+ for at least 3 passes. If booting from UEFI, run MemTest86 instead. Let us know if there were any errors reported
3 - Hard Drive diagnostics: Don't sweat the details here. In short, run the Seagate Seatools Long/Extended test from a bootable disk. If unable to run it from a bootable disk (UEFI and some others), then run the Seagate Seatools for Windows from within Windows. There are no diagnostics for SSD's, just run the Crystal Mark tests and let us know if there were any failures
4 - Furmark: run the test until the temperature stabilizes. Don't let it get much over 90ºC. Let us know the temp it stabilizes at and if there were any problems running the test (other than slowness).
5 - Prime95: run the Blend test for 24 hours (this may not be possible, but run it as long as you can. Look for errors in the output, or for problems running the test (freezes/crashes)
6 - Video 2 (other video tests): there's several tests here. Run all of them. I'm especially interested in the Video Memory Test. Let us know the results of the test(s)
- A - simtek.org memtest
- B - Video memory stress test
- C - Artifact Locator
- D - OCCT - 4 built in tests for CPU, GPU, PSU
- E - Video Memory Stress Test
7 - CPU tests: run at least one test on your CPU and let us know the result.
