Computer Freezes when I am playing/starting games
  1 / 3    
As mentioned in the title, my computer has started to go cold on me. The computer just freezes, and there is no bsod, and the only way to get away from it is by manually resetting it by pushing the button on my case. I am using CPUID HWMonitor, and the temperatures looks more than fine when it happens. I've done a memtest, Video Card Stability Test, choosing max performance in power settings, making a local user on my computer, fresh install of the Nvidia Graphics Driver (including the DDU program), downloaded newest drivers for multiple components, and more. This issue has been driving me crazy for about 3 weeks now, and this is basically my last resort. I am not even sure if it's a pc component problem, but I figured I'd try to go here as no software fixes has helped. Point me another direction if I am in the wrong place. I'd appreciate any help. My specs are: Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Intel Core i7 5820K Cpu MSI X99A SLI PLUS(MS-7885) Motherboard Crucial DDR4 2133MHz 4GB x4 RAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Z Gpu Cooler Master V850, 850W PSU I haven't done any overclocking on any components. Thanks in advance.

    My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

    Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

    ""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
    Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

    If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

    Just because you can, does not mean you should.

    Hello! Yes, everything was fine before then. Hmm, should I go back to the nvidia driver that was released earlier? and I honestly don't know how to go back on Windows updates.

    The weird thing though is that this problem isn't with all games. It's just with specific games that I play, and all of said games are online games. Everytime I am able to to get a dump file of the freeze, it says BugCheck 133, and ''Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+1d5866 )''

    Download DDU (get the 17.0.7.5):
  • Install DDU

  • Hold [SHIFT] and click on RESTART Windows.
  • you will end up in Safe mode
  • Cannot use PIN, must use Account password to enter SAFE MODE

    Run DDU:
  • Select: NVIDIA software and Drivers
  • Select: Clean, Do not Restart
  • Shutdown the computer

  • Run the Microsoft Show hide tool

  • Run it again to make sure there are no more, if more appear, keep rerunning

    Hello! Yes, my RAM is put that way. The card is indeed not in it's right spot. I tried to fix the problem we are talking about now by changing my gpu slot, and while doing so I managed to break the slot it was already in. So I am not able to use that slot anymore. I was also playing on my computer untill it froze when I used speccy. So I just turned it on, after it had froze. Should I maybe have let it stay off for a while before using SPECCY? Or rebooted after turning it on after the freeze? I have now done your first instructions, and the games under question has been working great! I haven't been able to play 2 games in a row at a game called League of Legends in these 3 weeks, and I just played 4 in a row, no problems at all. So it seems this problem is gone atleast, so thank you so much! I am at another point of question though. I tried another game, that hasn't been working. It froze at the character selection, and gave me ''DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION''. I have tried to fix this before, as I've seen it's just an easy downgrade of a driver, but that hasn't worked. That fix is the only one I have found online too, so I don't know how to fix that either. Thanks again for the help though.

    Hello! Well, I am pretty sure it is very unfixable, as it is physically broken. The slot part of it is ''ripped'' off... heh. The game that is given this DPC violation is a Steam game called 'TERA'. I have done multiple checks for the disks, and even plugged out one of them and tried to play the game afterwards, giving me the same results both on my SSD and my HDD. In the 'IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers' option on Device Manager, the driver was 'Intel(R) 9 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller' and I changed it to 'Standard SATA AHCI Controller'. That was atleast step one, and I had already done the other steps that atleast one guide talked about. [url]https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/23800288[/url] Here is the link to the Benchmark thing. I was only able to do the Time Spy one, though for some reason. The others I had to upgrade to use.

    Testing the GPU in another computer will eliminate the Card from the equation.

    .

    My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

    Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

    ""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
    Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

    If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

    Just because you can, does not mean you should.

    Hello! [url]https://gyazo.com/cbb1db4ddbabc4a1f31e25182db97f5f[/url] I don't seem to find the option to turn on or off SLI in the control panel. Anyways, I am in the middle of trying out the second fix you told me about. Going back to an earlier Nvidia driver. But I can't seem to hide the 23.21.13.8813 update from Nvidia. the show hide tool has ran 8 times just to get rid of that one update, but it doesn't seem to work. I am not sure what I am supposed to do with it.

    Hello! I have tested out all the RAM cards now, and it failed on all of them. I was only wondering how exactly I don't authenticate the windows install? And also how to not let it update to the 1709 FCU. Thanks in advance, and thank you for all this help.
