Random Blue Screens

This would happen to me in the past with my asus g73jh. I would be doing something which required a lot of power and the damn thing would flash a blue screen and power off.

At first I would simply go to system restore and that worked.. for a little, it was only putting a bandage on a massive wound.

I finally broke down and disassembled my entire laptop, unhinged the motherboard and cleaned the hell out of both the GPU and CPU fan, both were loaded with dust and other crazy sticky resin (I'm a smoker).

Once I properly cleaned and dusted out the machine, I repasted the CPU and GPU with thermal paste. Have not had a problem since.

I believe by properly following these three steps, ppl can fix almost all blue screen errors related to hardware failure

Dxgmms1.sys is showing in the minidumps. This is a DirectX driver related to your video driver or card. Since this is a new card and you keep having video issues, a bios setting might be causing all this grief...

How did you check your hard drive? All the BSOD's can corrupt the data on the hard drive. You should check it again

..."and I've run defrags disk checks"... This is what I was referring to. Go to Computer and right-click on the C drive. Select Properties, Tools, check now. Put a check mark in both boxes to set a disk check on the next start up. The latest minidumps are pointing to a hard drive issue, in case you were curious:) Let the check finish. There's no need to know what it found. Just run the computer and see if the BSOD's stop
