Lately I've been having a major issue with my PC, it completely freezes while playing games like Rocket League and Overwatch. My PC just completely freezes and the audio also hangs. The only way to reboot my PC is to turn it off, wait 10-15 seconds and boot it up again.
Full PC Setup:
- GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 970
- CPU: Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07Ghz
- Motherboard: Sapphire PureBlack X58
- OS: Windows 10 64bit Pro
The strange thing then is: My GPU driver sometimes also completely disappears. I'm left with a 640x480 display and have to install a driver again, unless I reboot and then the old driver re-appears.
A list of things I've done:
- Checked OpenHardwareMonitor to see temperatures, they are nothing out of the ordinary
- Installed multiple different versions of nVidia GPU drivers (most recent ones, a few from half year back)
- Clean installed those drivers as well, using Display Driver Uninstaller
- Cleanly installed Windows 10 Pro because I read some stuff about problems with the Anniversary Update (AU).
- Stress tested CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD all for at least 20 minutes, none of which caused me to crash
In the Event Viewer it shows an Event 17 WHEA-Logger:
None of my freezes created a BSOD and didn't create a dump, until today after 2 freezes in the afternoon that created 2 dump files. I've provided the logzip in the attached files which should contain all the needed files.A corrected hardware error has occurred.
Component: PCI Express Root Port
Error Source: Advanced Error Reporting (PCI Express)
Vendor IDevice ID: 0x8086:0x340A
Class Code: 0x30400
If anyone has any suggestions to what it could be that would be highly appreciated!
Edit 1: Updated Windows 10 to Build 1607 and reuploaded a new zip file
