CPU crippled by BSOD

  1. Hi, I am new here, I have tryed for so long to fix my problem with BSODs... but I don;t even know if it's only one problem. I am very good with computers and usually can solve any problems I have. I have read many threads about this issue and tried many things, but nothing seems to work. My only hope is that a more knowledgeable person can read my minidump and tell me where the error is happening and then I can see from there what I can do to stop the blue screens.

    I have read the sticky and long ago tried the solutions offered. Memtest, uninstall and reinstall drivers, newest drivers, swap hardware, the likes...

    I just can not stop my CPU from ***constantly*** BSODing.

    I just reinstalled Windows THIS MORNING. BSOD is not letting up, still constant. **Also BSODs on Win7 on a seperate HD** as opposed to Win XP.

    THis is an online gaming rig, but I doubt I could log into a game server before a BSOD.

    I just don't know where else to turn ... I saved a text copy of this mail because I will probably BSOD while setting up the minidump...

    MINIDUMP x 5 : This is the total crashes since getting off work ...

    my diagnosis to your bsod problem is something is faulty w/ your peripheral devices.
    this is only my suggestion--one by one try to pullout them and find out w/c cause the bsod problems by the way how is your NIC installed on board or pci?

    I think I fixed this issue. Chances are, it was an issue with my 680i mobo, and the fact I was using standard BIOS and drivers. After flashing to the newest BIOS and updating all mainboard drivers to a newer version, the problem has stopped or is now so scarce I have yet to see it in a whole day, where I would easily crash 5 or even 10 to 15 times a day before the updates.

    Anywyas, if you are using EVGA 680i on stock BIOS and drivers and experienceing BSODs, updating BIOS is your first step to stopping the problem.
