    GPU Related BSOD


    I am getting some weird BSODs or freezes.

    One of them occurs randomly when i open up GPU-Z, i have tried to see if anyone else suffer from this, and apparently no one does.
    For me it's just, i can open it 40 times, and one of them might cause a total freeze. Think i had this issue with my old card as well.

    Now the other issues is that i get BSOD when i Play at rare occassions.
    Latest i got when Driver Verifier was on, though not caused by that, but in a Game not during Windows boot.

    I want to blame the AMD Crimson drivers which i always had more issues with than latest Catalyst.
    But as no one else has this issues, and my card always act weird sometimes, i am am starting to think it's something else causing the problems, not the Crimson drivers alone.

    My GPU is: R9 380
    Got latest current driver: 16.3.0
    For what it's worth it did a Memtest86 test during the night some week ago, it was when my CPU was overclocked though (which it's not now as i want to focus on the GPU issue).
    Memtest86 ran for 8:03:03 hours, 6 Pass, 8 GB, no errors.

    Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
    A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
    For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.
    I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
    If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

    Ah got same answer elsewhere before this, i didn't get an answer why my copy was counterfeit though.
    Will have to look into this.

    No recommendation, in most cases you're being ripped off when you buy a copy on a site like Amazon.

    Doesn't matter a lot :)

    Did you perform a clean installation to remove the modifications?

    I did not, i however did install Windows 10 on a partition and try to open GPU-Z a lot, and it froze there as well (basically only had the latest GPU driver installed, nothing else).

    Confused what the problem is for that, here is a thread i asked about it as well: GPU-Z AMD 380 can cause PC Freeze very rarely. | TechPowerUp Forums

    Though, the other crashes i have had (Special Pool errors) Are NOT from GPU-Z, those are with Driver Verifier on, and i think it's caused by using the GPU (gaming etc) and AMD VCE (OBS Studio) at the same time, though it's not easily reproduced, but it has occurred with those two working both times. I have done few tests with both separately but nothing happened, but as i said it's not easily reproducible so that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

    I did remove AutoKMS which i guess is the modification you talk about:)

    AutoKMS is an executable that brings the modifications for activation, removal of it does NOT remove the modifications.

    Ah i see.

    Well i got a temporary Windows 10 on the same Drive i can shift to for testing, it's hard for me to reset as i got ton of data i need to organize etc.
    But as said, GPU-Z still crashes, I would assume that the other crashes would as well, but that i haven't confirmed.
    Would like to first solve the GPU-Z crash which has haunted me, then move on to the other things:)
