Topic 195637

Hello,

Two weeks ago my pc crunched hapily with CPU and nVidia GPU (GTX285).
I went away and put the pc off. Last week I put it on again and a blue screen appeard a few minutes after running BOINC. Restart, few minutes blue screen, restart and so on.
I was fast enough after a few times to quit BOINC and the pc stayed on for more then two hours. So I start BOINC and a few minutes later blue sreen again. After fiddling with it the whole morning I put the pc off. Now I have start it again and quit the remaining cuda job. I got a new one and 4 CPU tasks which were runnig halfway already have started again. All is running fine now for 35 minutes.
Could the cause of this be the cuda WU's?

It could be because of faulty PSU. Sometimes this happens when some capacitors inside were blew up.

I had also such a problem,

I had also such a problem, after a few minutes of running cuda the system was rebooting. I tried every thing oc or not, using only 3 or 2 cpu's, nothing helped.
For me it was a problem with the nvidia driver, after upgrading from 260.99 to 266.58 every thing is running fine.

Are you overclocking? Cuda projects can stress the heck out of a video card as can overclocking, together it can mean blue screens.

No, no overclocking I never dare to do that. It is a i7 920 with 12Gb RAM, and one GTX285. The case has a top van, a front van, one side fan, blowing towards the grafics card and one back fan to blow the heat out. Programs for measuring temperatures, i.e TTrottle (BOINC add-on) is reporting a GPU temp of 62°C.

Hi Gundolf,

You are the specialist, you heve to help me there. I can do a lot with a screwdriver, and easy installations and working with applications, but when making changes to settings and so on I am a beginner.

BSOD is acronym for Blue Screen Of Death.
Windows Event Log is found in Start->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer->Windows Logs->Applications. If not there, it'll be in System. Watch for all warnings (yellow) or errors (red) around the actual BSOD as well.

Well thanks a lot of

Well thanks a lot of interesting information (if you know what it means).
This sysem has a lot of warnings and errors.

This one around BSOD:
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

And this one:
simpleServer information: Error: Ignoring unknown directive "StartThread"
At line 6 in C:\Users\TJ\AppData\Local\sohoclient\cfg/sohoclient.conf

Make sure the required module is loaded and the relevant handlers
have been added. Ensure the directive is after all LoadModule and
AddHandler directives. .

And this one:
\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\cpuidlep.SYS has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.

The first one I pasted is visible yesterday as well but the pc is still running for 23 hours and 50 minutes. I have absolutely now idea. It is my only not Dell pc and it is the only one with problems.
