A couple of questions:
1. Are you overclocking?
2. Are you manually setting dram timings / voltages?
3. When did this start happening? Recently? As soon as you put the machine together? After changing a component?
4. What BIOS settings are you using?
There are a few things you can do:
1. Run Prime95 to stress test your cpu independently of the GPU.
2. Run Memtest86 all the way though.
3. Run 3DMark test.
4. Load up a different OS, for example Ubuntu, and try running a game there. Does it BSOD on all games, or just high end ones?
5. You seem to have a lot of memory there. Try just 4GB.
6. If you changed hardware recently, Ι'd suggest resetting the bios to defaults.
7. Try updating your BIOS.
1. CCC was using "overdrive." It wasn't set past normal clock speeds, but I turned it off anyway. I have not manually overclocked anything. Everything is stock to my knowledge.
3. Computer started blue screening right after I put it together. It would only go to blue screen when trying to wake the computer from sleep. I turned off sleep mode and viola, problem solved. It recently resurfaced when playing some more graphically intense games. It didn't happen for a few days, but it happened again just now. Every time it happens, it says it was due to ntoskrnl.exe. Here
is the wikipedia page about it.
4. Default settings
My friend has this same "copy" of windows, and his gets the same errors. Do I have a corrupt version, or a corrupt ntoskrnl.exe? Is there any way to replace just this file? If I boot my windows disc and go to repair will it find and replace this corrupt file? Is this even possible if the file on the disc is corrupt itself?
