  1. Hello everyone,I have been having a rash of BSOD crashes one after the other at random times during gaming.The game in particular being City of heroes,I have ran the game with speccy in the background to see what my temps were but at the most I get 75 for my GPU and under that for my CPU.I have also checked the power requirements for all my components and my 750 watt is more than enough for the job.This is my BSOD message.

    BCCode: 7f
    BCP1: 0000000D
    BCP2: 00000000
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000000

    my specs:

    Operating System
    MS Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
    CPU
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ 21 °C
    Windsor 90nm Technology
    RAM
    2.0GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 200MHz (5-5-5-15)
    Motherboard
    BIOSTAR Group TPower N750 (CPU 1)
    Graphics
    P191W @ 1440x900
    512MB GeForce 8800 GT (XFX Pine Group) 69 °C
    Hard Drives
    488GB Seagate ST3500418AS ATA Device (SATA) 31 °C
    Optical Drives
    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24LS50 ATA Device
    Audio
    High Definition Audio Device

    I'll provide any additional info as needed.I appreciate any input that can help me,I'm stumped.

    75C = 165F What are the heat parameters for your video card?

    I have had it up to 80 or more without any artifacts or issues.These issues have also happened during idol periods in the game without warning.

    But what are the parameters?

    How to find and post your Minidump Files:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

    It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don’t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don’t Zip each one individually.

    Can anyone pinpoint the cause?

    We understand the frustrations that PC issues can cause but please try to keep in mind that everyone who lends advice here, etc. are all volunteers with jobs and other responsibilities. We try to answer as best we can when we can.

    Normally when minidump files cite a Windows OS driver as the cause they are usually too general to be of any help. But in your case this may be the exception.

    One file cited the driver amdk8.sys which has to do with your cpu and Windows. This is more significant in light of...

    Your error code 0x101. Please see this link for further description and diagnostic advice that I strongly recommend that you follow: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-lo...0x101-clock_watchdog_timeout-troubleshtg.html (but stay away from Registry Mechanic).

    Thank you for taking your time to respond,and i apologize for being persistent i just didn't want my post to end up and the bottom of the dog pile on accident.I just replaced the hardrive and dvd/rw and purchased windows 7 so its a bit frustrating for it to go down like this.Thank you again.
