Hi Guys I've been having some trouble for a while on Windows 7 and I can't seem to figure it out maybe you could help me lol.

I seem to only get crashes when playing any games on my computer sometimes the program just crashes I can deal with that but I have been getting a lot of BSOD's recently here is my most recent one I pulled this information from whocrashed from my minidump file. Any help in the right direction would be much appreciated as this has been happening for a while now.......

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

clr.sys

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Hello Bigman1990

First of all can I offer you a tip that will ensure that your request for help does not get overlooked, do not reply to your own post while you are waiting for someone to offer you assistance, staff and other members will see a topic that has received no replies and will then take a look at your OP, if you reply to your own post it will appear that you are already receiving assistance and your request for help may be overlooked, if you have something to add while waiting for a reply use the edit tab, bottom right of the dialogue box :thumbsup:

Please provide information about your computer, this includes is it a notebook or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

Have you checked the Device Manager for any yellow ! or red Xs.

Thanks for the response I have a custom built computer, Desktop of course :happy: and in the device manager I have no Yellow ! or Red X's this can happen while I play games and it can also happen at Idle. If you need any details on what hardware is in my pc I can provide that I just installed the new Beta Drivers for my Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 XT. It seems to help a little with crashes not as much though.

Sorry it took a little while to respond been busy with work and restoring my 1988 RM250 lol here is the link to speccy

http://speccy.pirifo...1VyttczCtoVcQXg

and here is my Power Supply

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817153054

on neweggs site and here's one on Thermaltake's Site

http://support.therm...?C=1432&ID=1512

Thermaltake's site might be more accurate for what you need to know.

and just so you know the only crashes I have been getting are the most recent ones after the reformat...It might help narrow some stuff down :thumbsup:

Sorry for the delay in replying, I`m a bit under the weather at the moment and so not been near a computer.

Run DriverMax and see if any newer alternative drivers are suggested http://www.innovativ....com/drivermax/
Please note that you can only download 2 drivers a day for free and be sure to uncheck the "install AVG toolbar" box.

Can I ask what type of disk you used for the fresh install as in a full retail, OEM or a burned copy.

Next check your PSU output as the +5V rail looks off;

Download Speedfan 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.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

Posted Image
(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Depending on the results we may need to run further software for comparison http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.


Sorry but I may not be back online until Saturday am UK time, I will ask for another pair of eyes to take a look so you are not kept waiting.

For the reinstall of Windows it is an OEM Disk I have included the screenshot and I will be installing updates on DriverMax until they are completely updated. It says 18 but there are a few that apply to multiple issues. What adjustments would be needed to be made for the 5V Rail to be in the correct range?

If updated chipset drivers for your MB are suggested make sure it is one of if not the first drivers that you update.

I should have been more specific about the OS disk, is it an OEM disk like the example at the attached link http://www.amazon.co.../?tag=pcpapi-20 I need to ask this as quite often a member will tell us that they have used an OEM disk and they have, but what they do not say is they have used a friends Dell OEM disk on their custom built or other branded computer such as HP.

Your temps and voltages both look good in Speedfan but so that we have a comparison can you watch a video or do some gaming, run HWMonitor and again provide a screenshot for us, readings taken when the computer has been under load are a more accurate result http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

As I have said your PSU looks ok in Speedfan but to answer your question regarding the +5V rail please see my canned text below;

As a PSU puts out various voltages +3.3V, +5V and +12V it may appear that the PSU is working correctly but it is not, any significant drop of any output can prevent the system from booting up, the other scenario is a significant increase in the output which can be worse as it can fry one or more major components such as the MB, CPU, Ram, add on video card etc.

Please be aware that there are no user replaceable parts in a PSU so a bad one should be disposed of in a responsible manner and any type of conclusive testing will need to be done by a suitably trained Tech who has the required testing equipment and the relevant knowledge as to how to use it.

Yes the disk I purchased was through newegg a system builder disk, Also a new driver just came out for my video card so I installed it to see if we have any crashes from that as well. Here are some pictures idle and during gaming.

Thanks for the update Bigman1990 :thumbsup:

Typical HWMonitor is showing the +3.3V rail as being low :unsure:
The unusual reading/s may be caused by your MBs own monitoring software so can you check the readings in the BIOS for us, you only need to let us know if they are good or bad and not provide a screenshot.

The readings could be under something like PC Health Status like in the screenshot below.

NB: BIOS voltage readings.

The readings are not conclusive in the BIOS as the computer is under the least amount of load, if they are higher or lower than what they should be though it does suggest a PSU problem.

Readings are as they should be but please keep in mind what I have said about the computer not being under load.

How is the computer running at present and how is updating the drivers going.

I will wait for an update from you now and with the exception of creating a new page file will hold off suggesting anything further for now.

Open My Computer. At the top right, there is a search field...type pagefile.sys and click the search icon. In the search results, right click on the file (pagefile.sys) and choose Delete...confirm the deletion.

Restart your machine. A new pagefile will be created automatically when the machine starts.
