    No, I have not overclocked my laptop (unless I did without realizing so). Could unparking/parking CPU be a possible cause? I remember doing something like that quite sometime ago (but I was pretty sure I undid it after I was done).

    I think it's my not understanding the report - rather than your overclocking. Don't worry about it for now, just finish the hardware diagnostics and we'll figure out where to go from there.

    I don't know if using a Windows-runnable HDD test will suffice (SeaTools for Windows | Seagate) but I had it perform a "Fix All Long" test and passed.

    Do I still have to do a bootable HDD test?

    TDSSKiller found no threats. Kaspersky Security Scan found no threats (just a bunch of alerts about my computer having autorun enabled).

    And like I have mentioned in my previous post, memtest86 passed 4 times with no errors.

    Memtest - passed
    HDD test - passed (Windows test is OK)
    Malware scan - passed

    What about these tests? (from this link: Hardware Diagnostics )
    Video 1 (FurMark) - ?
    Prime95 - ?
    Video 2 (the 5 tests) - ?
    CPU Stress tests - ?

    I ran Furmark with SLI settings enabled, put it to fullscreen and tried both forcing alternate frame rendering 1 and 2 but my 2nd GPU doesn't seem to be getting any GPU load. I ran it for 15.5 minutes and GPU 1 hit 88 degrees C but 2nd GPU was still hovering around 40 degrees C. What seems to be the problem here? How do I get the 2nd GPU to work? (I tried the methods here [TIPS] How to Enable SLI and CrossFire Support for OpenGL Applications | Geeks3D except for the renaming methods).

    Also, just to verify, for Prime95, the number of torture test threads to run for me is 8, right?

    Intel Processor Diagnostics passed as well.

    A question, is it really safe for GPU temps to reach around 90 degrees C and above? I'm worried it may cause problems with my GPU instead of fixing any (thermal paste drying up)?

    You have problems with the video - 88șC is just too high IMO.
    Run the other video tests and watch the temps.

    Another option is to remove the SLI and test each card individually.

    FWIW - I don't know anything about SLI, so you'd be better off asking in the Graphics Cards forum: Graphic Cards - Windows 8 Forums
