Let me know if the BSOD's happen when using IE or FF please.

Well there has been times that chrome wasn't even open this time whatever it was repeatable because when I opened chrome and let it open the same tabs it repeated. So far no BSOD in firefox .

OK just for my own interest can you do the following.

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Actually that +12 volt is pretty close to be low. Can you do the below so we can verify the readings.



Please download and run Hardware Monitor
Installation (setup version only)
HWMonitor is a hardware monitoring program that reads PC systems main health sensors : voltages, temperatures, fans speed. Please get a screenshot and attach of the temps and voltages for me please.
The program handles the most common sensor chips, like ITE® IT87 series, most Winbond® ICs, and others. In addition, it can read modern CPUs on-die core thermal sensors, as well has hard drives temperature via S.M.A.R.T, and video card GPU temperature.

A low reading could cause a temporary power loss which may cause a BSOD or even a system reboot.

It should be up around 11.5 volts or higher. Your HwMonitor was really off showing:

Voltage 5 0.26 Volts [0x3] (+12V)

.26 which in my opinion can't be right as the system would not even function at that point.


The third way to check this is in some of the newer bios it actually will show the voltages in the Power area. Can you check there to see what the +3.3 and +12 volt rails are showing.

Hmm interesting sounds like Chrome itself might be the issue.
Any chance of uninstalling and do a fresh install with the newest Chrome fresh?

OK good and hopefully updates will go correctly. It does look like the issue is Chrome at this point but I will wait till later to say for sure.
