I've been getting these crashes for the last 3 or 4 days now. Sometimes while in game, sometimes while doing nothing. I have updated all the drivers that I could, but no change.

 

I have attached the Sysnative zipped file.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

There were numerous crashes that point to drivers. However something I saw in the Speccy report makes me believe that your PSU is failing which may be causing your problems. Someone should be along that knows more than I do to verify this.

Voltage
CPU CORE: 
0.996 V
MEMORY CONTROLLER:  1.488 V
+3.3V:  1.872 V
+5V:  3.367 V
+12V: 8.112 V
-12V: -9.408 V
-5V: -8.592 V
+5V HIGH THRESHOLD: 2.681 V
CMOS BATTERY:  1.620 V

Damn, I only replaced my PSU about a year and a half ago... On the bright side, that's gotta be one of the cheapest things to replace... thanks for your reply. I'll see what others have to say, also.

What are you using for a PSU?

It's a Cooler Master 650w. GM series.

It should still be under warranty. In the mean time you can update your drivers. Chipset and video drivers being the most important. ASUS has an auto updater you can download.

As far as I can tell, my drivers are all up to date, as is the BIOS. Are there any other kind souls out there that can take a look at this for me? I appreciate the time you've taken, HyperHenry.

Apparently not. I was scolded for PMing one to ask for help. I can say with almost certainty that if you replace the PSU you'll eliminate most of your problems if not all of them. The voltage variance is suppose to be 5% up or down. It was clearly more than 5%.

What you had is usually a good PSU. Stay away from the entry level series.
