    Hey, I still haven't gotten around to purchasing the PSU, however my mate at school told me to try taking out one stick of ram and see if it still crashed. So I have and at the moment there has been no crash even while running multiple 3D games at once. I have found this weird as I did run memtest for about 10 passes with no errors. I was wondering if it is possible that it has been my RAM the entire time and if replacing it would solve all my issues.

    Hey, unfortunately I crash again getting BSOD stop 101:
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name:BlueScreen
    OS Version:6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
    Locale ID:1033

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode:101
    BCP1:0000000000000031
    BCP2:0000000000000000
    BCP3:FFFFF88002F64180
    BCP4:0000000000000002
    OS Version:6_1_7600
    Service Pack:0_0
    Product:256_1
    I have also attached the minidump


    PS: I have just run both IntelBurn and Prime95, after literally 10 - 30 seconds later my whole PC froze up in both tests. Could this be a CPU problem?

    Hey, thanks for the reply I have tried re-installing drivers but I am not too sure if I have done it correctly. Is there any good tutorials that you could link me too?

    Thanks, I used the tool and installed the latest drivers, however the error is persisting. I have a small hunch that it could be something concerning the voltage of my cpu, as after it has crashed I get an error before windows loads saying "Overclocking Failed".

    Turn off any over clocking and see if the computer stabilizes...

    Sorry, I cant quite figure out how to turn off the over clocking, as the processor came pre-overclocked. I also ran Prime 95 and found this:
    [Tue Nov 20 17:35:44 2012]

    However I can not find the stress.txt file.

    Well, this indicates that a piece of hardware is failing. To start, and using clues from earlier posts, try swapping out the video card

    Hey, sorry I have been away, the issue was happening before I bought my new graphics card. I originally thought it was the graphics card however it fixed nothing. I thought it might indicate CPU failure or something.

    My PC is also crashing more frequently, sometimes even while browsing. Please, please help. Thanks
