    BSOD issues


    Hi all, some of you might recognize me from the SevenForums.

    I was having these same issues with Windows 7 installed, and it was diagnosed to be a insufficient power supply. To remedy this (and simultaneously upgrade to a GPU to support 3 monitors) I replaced my old graphics card (Gigabyte Radeon R7 250) with a new one (AMD FirePro W4100) which has a much smaller power requirement (50W vice 400W). I felt confident enough in the fix that I also upgraded the machine to Windows 10 (via the free upgrade from 7).

    After upgrading, I'm still receiving the same variety of BSOD's I was before (although it seems with a little less frequency). I also did a clean install of Windows 10.

    I'm still collecting BSOD's (several got deleted by my new install of CCleaner) but figured I'd go ahead and post up anyways.

    Basically, I receive a manner of Blue Screens to include the most common:
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE

    I did receive one which trouble me....and might point to the fact I still need to replace my PSU:
    INTERNAL_POWER_FAILURE (the fourth minidump)


    These happen at any random time whether I am actively on the computer or not. I doesn't seem to be attached to any specific action or program.

    Thanks!

    Hi cannoncd,

    I can't seem to load the dumps properly, again..

    This question has already been asked in the other thread, but does a crash also occur when only 1 monitor is connected?
    Windows 7 is different from Windows 10, the answer for Windows 7 might not be the same for Windows 10.

    I haven't yet tried with one monitor, but will do so today.

    On a brighter note, the new GPU has fixed the screen flicker problem!

    When down to 1 monitor, and let the machine sit. The most recent minidump is with one monitor, while computer was idle.

    Please check link below for BIOS updates.
    Attachment 51906
    Code:
    BIOS Version:              American Megatrends Inc. P2.40, 7/31/2014
    ASRock > FM2A88M Extreme4+

    As a side note since I see everytime
    Code:
    sysinfo: unknown error 80004005
    instead of CPU data in the dumps, please make sure you are not overclocking anything.

    I have made no effort to overclock anything...is there a possibility for something to come overclocked out-of-the-box?

    Sometimes there is a possibility yes, or there is also software like turboboost for increasing the frequency of the CPU.
    I suggest to check your BIOS for the frequency of the CPU, I'm not exactly sure where you can find it as the BIOS of every mainboard manufacturer is different.

    So, I should crosscheck the frequency that's reported from BIOS against the manufacturer's specs?
