    Hello guys, this is my first post and desperation to try and get two problems fixed as my title suggests.

    1. I have recently experienced blue screen of deaths over the past few days, my rig has been pretty sound and secure up till recently. Now after the reboot I get the following.
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
    Locale ID: 2057

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 116
    BCP1: FFFFFA800A782010
    BCP2: FFFFF88011078DAC
    BCP3: 0000000000000000
    BCP4: 0000000000000002
    OS Version: 6_1_7601
    Service Pack: 1_0
    Product: 768_1

    Files that help describe the problem:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\052514-21996-01.dmp
    C:\Users\*******r\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-28938-0.sysdata.xml

    I have recently purchased Watch Dogs_ and have found that it happens more freuqently during play of that. But the most recent BSOD (and the results above) were when I clicked 'Join call' on skype and it BSOD'd on me. Giving the results above.


    2. I have an incredibly noisey fan, past few months I have had complaints from my sisters that they can hear my computer ''whirring'' loudly through a brick wall. Any tips for seeing which one is causing it?


    many thanks in advance.. im kinda hoping you guys can give me some advice..

    Start by posting ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb installed, exact video card installed, exact pw supply installed, etc, etc. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, then post the exact make and model#

    Post your temps and voltages; specifically the cpu temp, system temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. This info is available in the bios or you can try something like hwmonitor;

    Note do not post "500W pw supply" post the exact make and model.

    Have you opened the case and given it a visual inspection for dust, dirt, etc? If not, do so. Blow out the system with a can of air. You may find that doing just that solves both problems [then again it may not however it does not cost anything]

    Thanks for your reply. I have done what I can/know how to find below, also added a link to the results of the HWMONITOR.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    HW Monitor Shot: http://gyazo.com/2c17a5fcfb07f0bfa59a429e321feca1

    CPU: AMD FX-4170 quad core.
    (Unsure on Model number/more details as it came with the stock system, however the first processor it came with was faulty, so they upgraded me to this one but did not provid me with any extra info on it)

    GPU AMD Sapphire Radeon HD 7800, http://www.sapphiretech.com/present...=1&gid=3&sgid=1160&pid=1473&psn=&leg=0&lid=1#


    MB:AMD Gigabyte 990fxa-ud5, (https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-347-GI)

    SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250gb, MZ-7TE250BW

    HDD: Segate Barracuda 7200RPM, 1TB SATA, 6GB's, ST1000DM003 (https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-257-SE)

    Backup HDD:
    2TB Seagate Barracuda ST32000542AS 3.5" SATA II Hard Drive


    RAM; DDR3, 8GB (unsure of the branding, however a friend advised me to run a memory diagostic tool, which resulted in no reported erros.)

    Power: Corsair 800W Gaming Series GS800 2013 Edition (CP-9020065-WW)

    Hope this helps.

    HWMonitor looks ok; the only thing I see a little off is the dram or ram voltage. Since this is a gigabyte board, download and install easytune [available on the support page for your mb] link to support page
    With easytune open, run something that will stress the system ie prime95 or OCCT [both free downloads from numerous sites]
    Your fan noise is most likely just a failing fan. With the case open and system running, get a long straw and hold it against the base [not blades] of the various fans in the system. See if you can find which one is making the noise.

    BTW you can just upload a screenshot of easytune running rather than use a third party file drop.

    Thank you for your reply. I have actually gone ahead and ordered a new Be Quiet fan. I noticed the CPU fan was running at 5,600 RPM... So I'm positive that was the noise issue. Many thanks.

    Be sure you check the bios so that smart fan is enabled for the cpu fan.

    When you install the new hsf, make sure all parts are clean and dry before you apply new compound.

    Could you enlighten me on what SmartFan is? I have a heatsinkand fan combo. Found here: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-003-BQ

    Also looking into a new case, debating a watercooled one, but unsure yet. Want to at least get this rig setup first.

    IMO water cooling is a leak waiting to happen.
    Smartfan is an option in the bios. It enables the mb to control cpu fan speed in relation to load/heat; ie the hotter the system gets, the faster the fan runs. If you are just watching a movie, email, etc, then the cpu fan runs at a very slow speed.

    Read your mb manual for a more detailed description of smartfan and options in the bios.
