Wow. Wasn't expecting it to be honest, I thought Hillary had this election won by far but the people have spoken. The Republican Party has really done well.

I hope America becomes great again :)


Merry Christmas everyone!

Confusing BSOD problem

05 May 2015 - 03:21 AM

Hello there everyone,

 

I'm really stumped with a Blue Screen of Death problem that I keep having so I would really like your advice.

 

For the last couple months my PC has been having a BSOD mainly with any sort of video streaming or video player sites like Youtube.
It seems to BSOD either at the beginning when a video is loading for the first few seconds, or during the time the video is playing.
he issue is odd, because some days I can watch many Youtube vids without any issues and some days I can have 4 or 5 BSOD's in a day with it happening every 2-3 videos.

 

It also seems to BSOD when shutting down Windows on certain days, but a lot less frequently than the Youtube issue - I probably have the shutdown BSOD once a week.

 

Also, the BSOD codes change every time. Sometimes its 1A, sometimes 7E, sometimes 3B, sometimes its says iusb3mon (Intel usb3 driver) caused the BSOD, sometimes it says cmudaxp (ASUS Xonar audio driver) caused the BSOD, sometimes it says Nvlddmkm.sys (Nvidia driver) caused the BSOD and sometimes it only gives codes with letters.

I've done a couple things over the last few weeks to try and fix it but nothing seems to help.

 

1.) I initially had the issue on my 2Tb OS drive. I bought a SSD and formatted the 2Tb HDD. 

I put a fresh install of Windows 7 on the SSD and now use the 2Tb as a storage drive for games.
The issue is still there even with the SSD so the 2Tb is not at fault.

 

2.) For RAM I am running 2x4Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133Mhz 1.5V with 2x4Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400Mhz 1.65V.
I had them both set to 2400MHz with the slower timings of the 2400MHz RAM and 1.65V and it runs fine in gaming.
I thought that perhaps the 1.5V RAM being overclocked and overvolted was causing the issue so I removed the 2x4Gb 2133MHz 1.5V RAM and ran with only the 2x4Gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400MHz 1.65V at its rated stock specs and that still did not get rid of the issue.

 

3.) I also overclocked my CPU and GPU, so I set both those back down to stock clocks and it didn't solve anything as the BSOD was still there.

 

4.) I uninstalled the Intel USB3 driver and the issue was still there.

 

5.) I normally install all my drivers from the motherboard CD. Since the BSOD occured with those older drivers, I decided to uninstall all the old ones and installed all the newest drivers for my Maximus VI Hero from the ASUS site and that didn't solve anything either.

 

6.) I also thought it might be an issue with Chrome on my system, so I uninstalled that and installed Mozilla Firefox instead but the issue was still there.

 

 

I'm really stumped with this one, especially since it never occurs in gaming. So... Any advice ?
I was thinking to perhaps run with 1 stick of RAM at 1333MHz and see if that perhaps helps ?
Or run my onboard GPU on my 4770K to rule out any unlikely but possible GTX980 issues ?


Dirt Rally Early Access

27 April 2015 - 06:35 AM

Well that was unexpected... Dirt Rally is now out for Steam early access on PC only at the moment.
Looks like a really nice Rally simulator. 
 
Quite challenging from the gameplay vid :
 
Links : 
 
Only a certain amount of cars/tracks/game modes at the moment. More will be added throughout the year - including Pikes Peak, Rallycross, PVP etc
 
Definitely picking this up, hoping to see it prosper into a great community assisted game like Project Cars :)
