I am in need of an urgent solution to my computer woes. First I just want to say that my knowledge with computers is fairly limited, so if I am not sure of some of the responses to this topic I apologize in advance but hope that you can be patient with me . Alright now for my problem, I have been getting a lot of BSODs recently after re-installing my copy of Windows 7 (64bit) with the code 124. I have look online for a solution and I believe I have narrowed it down to my RAM or Video Card but I'm leaning more towards my RAM, hopfully this is where you guys can come in and tell me I'm way off or that I might be heading in the right direction . My computer only seems to crash when I am working within Autodesk Maya and after about an hour of work, sometimes less, my computer will freeze up and then crash. I have built this computer for school and it has been able to run Maya fine over the past year, minus some annoying hiccups along the way where I've had to re-install Windows again multiple times, but only after this last install is when I have been receiving these BSODs.
My System Specs:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor
MOBO: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
Memory: Corsair DDR3 SDRAM 8.00 GB
GFX Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 470
PSU: Corsair TX-750W
I have also run memtest86 and did not receive any errors which is why I'm stumped because I thought it might be that . Also I have attached a .txt file of the BlueScreenViewer program. If there is any information I have left out that is still needed I just let me know. I have to work tonight so if I get any responses I will get back to you when I come home.
A side note: I have also been able to run some video games on this computer which I thought might crash the computer as well but I have not experienced a crash yet and can play for multiple hours.
Thank you all in advance for you help!
Edit: Some other, maybe just coincidental, times my computer has crashed have been when I run the Windows System Rating Assessment and when I've tried running the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool. I also noticed in the BSOD.txt that the majority of the crashes are "Caused By Driver : hal.dll". Could this driver be the culprit of all of this? I have updated all of my hardware, gfx, mobo, etc and Windows to the newest drivers.
