computer crash playing skyrim Results


Sponsored Links:



This problem started several weeks ago, and I am unable to resolve the issue.

Computer Specs
WIndows 7 Ultimate x64
Wolfdale 3.0ghz Dual Core
4gb 800mhz ddr2ram
Nvidia 9800gtx+
Seagate Barracuda 500gb hd

Several weeks ago I was playing Skyrim on the release date. I played for about 40 minutes, and I went to quick save and my computer froze. I restarted to the screen saying an error occured due to a recent software or hardware change. I had to run windows repair to try to fix the issue.

Startup repair failed, I ended up erasing the partition and reinstalling windows. I was slowly reinstalling programs when everything I had open (mozilla, various driver installations, etc) slowly started to freeze and say not responding. After a few minutes of this the computer locked up again, I had to reboot using the power button, only to find that windows was unable to load again, and startup repair was not working.

I reinstalled WIndows 7 for the third time. I ran Prime95 all night. I could hear the CPU fan running in the middle of the night, so im sure it was working. In the morning I checked my computer only to find it had froze again, I hardbooted, and windows was unable to start again.

Again I reinstalled windows, made a memtest boot disk, and ran it overnight. In the morning I checked to find no errors.I exited memtest and windows started to load, but it was becoming stuck on a black screen with my mouse being the only thing visible.

I'm not sure what else I can test. I used Seagate's HD checker and speedfan to check my HD and there were no errors present. Every time my computer froze windows was never able to start and my only option was to reinstall windows on my 50gb partition on my HD. I am not sure what this problem could be and I would really appreciate some help.




Hi I know this may be a long read but I hope you'll read it since I tried to get as much detail about my problem in it as possible. Thank you. my Specs are at the bottom if you wish to read them first.

I recently upgraded my GPU and I have been playing games rather intensely since I got it.

The BSOD first appeared playing Skyrim where the game would freeze (and the rest of the PC) but the audio would continue. this freeze lasted about a minute and the computer BSOD'd after that when playing skyrim the freezing would happen and occasionally the game would continue... this is strange because I was able to get through the entire tomb raider story with only one crash (Though I think this was due to over heating and while watching the heat it never happened again) also the crashes occur without any heat building up. and using a head monitor the GPU peaked at 64C and the CPU at around 45C playing skyrim

Now any game I play (such as hitman, just cause 2, and skyrim) I can get at MOST 20-30 minutes before it crashes with a BSOD.

I'v checked my driver and used sweeper to uninstall and install the latest beta (Catalyst 3.3 I think)
I've ran disk checks with no errors and defragmented my HDD.
and any other solution I could find.... (Excluding windows repair as I can not currently find my W7 disk)

I also ran bluescreen view and the files marked in read were:
"ntoskrnl.exe" this was highlighted every time and I understand it to be the OS.
"AtihdW76.sys" this only occurred on the first recorded crash (there have been 10 so far recorded)
"Ntfs.sys" this one has only occurred once on the second last time so far.

one other thing I noticed was a strange sound coming from my case just before it happens... At first i believed it to be hard drive clicking but it is much quieter and sound like what can only be described as the sound made when the light turns on when your electric oven or fryer heats up (Though I don't know if that'll help.)

My Specs are:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
CPU: FX 4170 (Quaud 4.2GHz)
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 7950 DD Edition
MotherBoard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333MHz
PSU: I don't actually know the brand or rail but I know its 750w and I think its 12v

I think thats all the details, I home someone will be able to help diagnose my problem, Thanks!

[EDIT]: I forgot to mention that I've never got the BSOD except for playing intensive games.... everything else is fine when on desktop or playing less intensive games like minecraft... though I did freeze up playing Darksiders 2 a few times but it has recovered and didn't crash.




Hello everyone. Before I' get into more detail I'll just put the .dmp files first, I know that's what your probably interested in.

Anyways, I've been having a lot of trouble keeping my computer stable. Not matter what driver I am on, stock, new, or old I will always receive a BSOD. It's almost instantaneous when I play Dead Space 3, when I disabled v -sync for more frames, and other games like Skyrim, but this isn't always the case, yet Devil May Cry works flawlessly.

Sometimes When I am using Firefox I will crash rarely. I'm not sure what the problem may be.

Sometimes when I receive an error report the codes given will vary. But usually complains about my drivers. This is extremely annoying.

Right now I'm using 13.2 beta drivers. And I am on Service Pack 1.

Join Date Jan 2013 Posts 70 Re: Having trouble playing games, constant BSOD, random crashes at times Majority of the crashdumps are generated straight from the AMD driver, in that the AMD driver is reporting an internal fault to Windows and is forcing a crash. This is very commonly caused by hardware failure or internal driver failure that it's reporting but for proprietary reasons it does not explain what it means (private documentation is required to decipher). By far the most common cause is hardware failure, often the GPU but sometimes the power supply can be involved.

The latest crashdump 3/02/13 shows your ATI driver being from Apr 19, 2011. In fact all the crashdumps in this report mention the same date. If you say that you have the latest version but this states otherwise, then there may be outdated fragments still lingering. Do a full uninstall (perhaps even with something like CCleaner or Driver Fusion) of the video drivers, then a complete install of the new ones. If the BSODs persist with the new driver, it's time to look for a new graphics card. Understand PSU can also be at fault so consider that as well.

Analysts:

AMD driver calling straight into KeBugCheckEx with its own proprietary bugcheck code. Without private documentation it will be very difficult to decipher what the bugcheck code means.
