:welcome:   Rajiv Soler,

 

Possible causes include overheating and/or driver issues.

 

Were you previously using another add on video card or the MBs integrated video chip.

 

The Furmark results only tell us the GPU temps which are ok but any other item or items of hardware could be overheating

.

Can you post the brand and model name or number for the PSU please.

 

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.

 (this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

 

 Download then run HWMonitor and post a screenshot so that we have a comparison to the Speedfan results, details from here

 

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.

 

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

:welcome: Rajiv Soler.

When you say "crashes" do you mean an application stops working, a BSOD, computer unresponsive or shut down, then nothing?

Was the CPU an upgrade?  Are you using the stock heatsink/fan that was supplied?   Did you alter the TIM in any way?

You may have a overheating issue, but could be another problem, RAM or PSU.

Please have a read of this topic, expand the link by damric. you can then report your temps. > http://www.tomshardw...-core-temp.html

 

Test your RAM, I use the more thorough Mamtest86  >  http://www.online-te...for-bad-memory/

 

Please give the brand/model of your PSU. 

 

Edit.

 

I was a bit late and behind Phillpower2's post, so sorry some questions are repeated.

I used to record my ctemps of CPU while gaming and it was maximum about 58 degrees and its summer here too . And yes i use stock fan .

there is one more thing . My Windows Experience Index is also not able to rate my pc due to some hardware device or driver not being responsive .
I ve attached the required images. 
Thank You again .

Thanks for the updates.

"Were you previously using another add on video card or the MBs integrated video chip.?"

 

Both monitors are not seeing the voltage rails.   Please download HWiNFO64 scroll the opened window to display the 12v 5v, 3,3v rails, upload a screenshot. > http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

 

As you have changed the CPU, we need to make sure that you do not neeed a BIOS update, > http://www.asus.com/...2/HelpDesk_CPU/

To find your BIOS version,

> click Start, > Click Run, in the box that opens, > copy and paste the bolded text, cmd > click OK.

The Command Prompt  window will open. > at the flashing cursor, > copy and paste the bolded text, wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion  > press enter.

The result line shows your BIOS version.

With regards to graphics question.   A mistake on our part as the AMD Fx6300 CPU does not contain integrated graphics, So the question now is, after installing the FX CPU, did you then install the GTX 560ti?

An update to your BIOS may be beneficial to your overall performance, but not essential.   Also not a good idea at the moment as your system is not stable and a crash during the update, could cause further problems.  

 

The +12v rail from the PSU shows as low, out of specs, this could be the issue with the crashes.

Have you access to, or can you borrow a known working PSU?

When the buzzing starts, can you tell from apox where it is coming from?

I installed the gtx 560ti first ! I did a clean re installation of video drivers too !!

Borrowing a PSU is pretty much impossible .
The buzzing noise comes frm my headphones .
EDIT : I Checked the event viewer it says event id 41 kernel-power !!

event id 41 kernel-power is too general to point to a specific issue.

Re, Windows update, don't think it is related to this issue, but, it should be turned on.   I only want Windows to install important updates and not any other types, like drivers.

I set mine to, important updatye, download and install automatically, no other options ticked.

 

We cn try other options, but you may eventually have the PSU tested.

 

When you did a clean before installing the GPU driver, did you use DDU, > http://www.guru3d.co...r-download.html Please run the reliabilty moniter and look for a recurring critical event, > http://www.makeuseof...bility-monitor/

I am not the best at reading Dump files and am asking another member to look in.   Can you follow the instructions below, the next BSOD should have these additional lines at the end,

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\082910-38250-01.dmp

 

How to collect the minidump file

=========================

1. Click "Start", input "SYSDM.CPL" (without quotation marks) in the “Search” bar and press “Enter”.
2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab and click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery". 
3. Under "Write debugging information" section, make sure the "Small memory dump (128KB)" option is selected. 
4. Make sure "%SystemRoot%\Minidump" is in the "Small dump directory" open box and click “OK”.

What operating system?

 

Zip any .dmp files in C:\Windows\Minidump then upload here and attach top your next reply.

 

I'll take a look and see what may be the cause.
