Please excuse any repetition on my behalf :whistling:

Are crash dumps enabled, for others that may read your topic, "how to check" below;

To configure your system to write out crash dumps in case of a system error, take the following steps:
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Startup and Recovery, click Settings (or Startup and Recovery). For best results, under write debugging information select full memory dump. Your system however must meet several conditions for this option to work. Alternatively you can select small memory dump to have your system write out crash dump files that are significantly smaller.

In the next screen you can choose to auto select a driver or select from a list, please choose the select from a list option and then place a tick in the atapi.sys box, restart the computer and see if this causes the system to crash.

See here and be sure to select only the atapi.sys driver box.

While stressing, monitor your temps/volts, see if they spike before a BSOD.

Download (from the bottom of the webpage) Prime95 to stress the CPU, > http://www.guru3d.co...5_download.html
Download Speedfan (bottom of the web page) have it running before you start the stress test, > http://www.guru3d.co...edfan_4_38.html

When was the above message displayed.

At some point run driver verifier again and let us know if you are able to follow each step without any problems, steps now in the correct order below ;)

1.Click Start
2.Click Run…
3.Type CMD and press Enter
4.In the new box, type verifier and press Enter

The Driver Verifier Manager utility will open up

Select the Create standard list option.
In the next screen you can choose to auto select a driver or select from a list, please choose the select from a list option and then place a tick in the atapi.sys box, restart the computer and see if this causes the system to crash.

To disable driver verifier when done go to start, run and type in verifier /reset

Click on OK and you`re done.

I did them exactly as stated but I was asking does it prompt for you to reboot or just you telling me to reboot. I did reboot but that check mark all it did was check and verify the driver which if there isn't a problem it does nothing correct? The Adapti driver was a standard microsoft one btw.

Another BSOD this time bluescreen and whocrashed caught something. I did have both programs running but was unable to tell if anything was out of the ordinary. The error was a irql_not_less_or_equal where the file name is. Here is the txt report for whocrash and bluescreen.

Booted back up ran about 30 mins or so of both tests gpu max temp was 41 c core 0 max temp was 49c core 1 max temp 48. They all did level off and not continue to climb during testing. I can test more later when I'm back home since I'd rather be able to monitor it than let it run itself.

I have been wading through the entire topic but have decided to just ask you, are you still using AVG free as your AV protection.
Are the correct time and date showing on the RTC on the taskbar.
