  1. HI !

    Yesterday I opened my computer and cleaned the inside because it was full of dust.
    After I started it I have gotten a Blue Screen Error quite alot (every 15-30 mins)
    This is not the first time I've cleaned the inside of this computer and have cleaned a few others too but nothing like that ever happend.

    I have also tried reinstalling windows and formatting everything but it still happens (a little less often though)

    Any advice is appreciated. THX :)

    See if there are any minidump files in the C:\windows\minidump folder. Minidump files have a .dmp extension. Select all the .dmp files, and right-click sending these files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload that folder as a file here

    The files were to big.

    This is what I could get:

    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

    Comments:

    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmpag.sys (AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).

    I have read that the last one is probably connected to GPU and that the fans might not be spinning correctly. That is unusual since I cleaned the interior inclunding fans but anyway I opened the computer again and checked if the fans are spinning OK. It seems that they are.

    The thing is that I don't get the BSOD at all now but what happens is that my screen freezes like this:

    I have lowered the GPU clock setting on my AMD Overdrive and for now I don't have any problems. I don't really use this computer for any video games but I don't want it crashing when I'm working with some other programs or just browsing the internet.

    Jojo :)

    Yes GPU, do you have the latest AMD/ATI driver installed?

    Yes. I even reinstalled it but it didn't fix the problem. It happens often if im running multiple programs, but it's ok for now since I lowered gpu. I don't know how come that started appearing now after I cleaned it

    Have you thought about replacing the GPU? The last BSOD shows just general Windows instability or a corrupt hard drive
