    BSOD, often after graphics drivers crash, but not allways.


    Bought a new high end gaming rig a few months back, and from the start I'd get the rare occurence where the system would freeze up and I couldn't even move the mouse, it seemed related to the RAM as it'd often happen when the RAM was very full and not clearing, especially if I used things like uTorrent. I never sat there watching it long enough to see the BSOD, but I'm guessing it would have come if I hadnt manually rebooted when it froze

    For the last few weeks I've been having some graphics driver crashing, I think it started when the new Nvidia driver came out, but not frequently enough that I thought much of it.

    A few days ago I started overclocking my graphics card a little bit, just turning up the frequencies of the gpu and memory a bit, testing it in 3dmark to see that it was stable, and all was well. Today, the computer keeps freezing up (like before) except now its constantly, and about 50-60% of the time the freezing and subsequent BSOD is preceeded by the graphics driver crashing.

    I've tried reverting to old versions of the driver, and nothing really helps. Though the crashing does seem to be influenced by what I do. Every attempt to run 3dmark goes badly, sometimes crashing the PC and sometimes not, but the program crashes if the PC doesn't. "heavy lifting" seems to set it off, though it happens randomly too.

    The setup:
    ASRock*Z97*Fatal1ty*Killer*-*Socket*1150
    Intel*Core*i7-4790K
    Kingston*DDR3*HyperX*1600MHz*8GB
    BenQ*27"*3D*LED*XL2720Z
    Fortron*AURUM*PRO,*850W,*80*GOLD
    Noctua*NH-D14*CPU*Cooler,*140mm
    ASUS*GeForce*GTX*780Ti*3GB*PhysX

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!
    Also, with the debut of Win10, we are extremely busy with it.

    Do your still need help with this problem?
    I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.

    As we can see from the Dump files, the DPC Watchdog Violation was the bugcheck code in most of the Dump files.
    Please run Display Driver Uninstaller from this **LINK**. Once you have removed the Display driver, please restart the system. Once this is done, please install the latest Graphics Drivers from the Manufacturer/OEM of the machine.

    Also, in one of the Dump files, the Killer Network Driver has been blamed. Kindly follow the workaround over here - MSI USA - Online Technical Support FAQ

    Kindly remove all of the ASUS Bloatware present on the system as well.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^
