New PC keeps crashing in General Discussion
Blue screen of death

    Sup, finally got the new monitor and started using the pc I bought months ago. Problem is games crash quite often, even though I can log in again fast. I checked for windows updates, the hard disk and the memory and even after the only update I found it keeps crashing. Got 2 blues screens and the rest are simple game crashes. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

    It's a ryzen 7 1700 with a 1080ti and 16 gb ram, plus a billion fans so overheating isn't the issue, gpu temperature doesn't go over 66° and the CPU one is even lower. Could it be that the motherboard needs to be updated? All other drivers seem to already be.

    Also GTA V should run at 120 fps with all settings maxed but I actually had to lower or eliminate some things for it to run at 63 fps. It's so strange.

      The first time I launch dota it is fine. But after I close dota and try to launch it again it would not respond in the task manager. I have to go and end task and reopen sometimes 4 to 6 times before it will work. Dota just a shitty game

        check everything be ok and updated


          Have you tried following the error codes when you blue screen?

            I looked for solutions about the first one that was IRQL GT ZERO AT SYSTEM SERVICE and found there was one windows update, but not for the second one I think, PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA. It's not just Dota btw, GTA crashed too. At first I probably pushed too far with all the antialiasing and shadows, it's an old AMD CPU after all, but damn that graphic card should deliver much more than 63 fps with lowered settings, despite the CPU bottlenecking it quite a bit. Watch dogs runs well but there was one time where both gpu and CPU were working at a 4-5% at 6 fps on both games so I had to turn off the pc for some time. Thing is it showed different problems and it got confusing, no idea what it could be. I'll check Kowareta's link too but I'm afraid to put my hands on the motherboard cause I'm no expert at all.

              Got a new one just now, IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL


                I find I have this issue as well, seems that the game isnt optimised brilliantly for 1080ti, in my experience toying around with the dx settings helps.

                  most often it is ýour ram thats the problem just get some software to test your ram and probably u need to change that


                    Yup, page fault mostly related to ram


                      either your ram not working properly or the OS cant communicate with it properly cause of bad/wrong drivers

                      but in your case, its not likely. you bought the pc recently and had same experience on old ones.
                      it might be cause of peripherals. some systems having their own communication criteria with peripheral devices eg direct communication to cpu, some using ram space for communication which might cause page fault since the device driver not working properly.

                        I would say RAM too.
                        Check the RAM CLock setting, set them to a low speed and try if its run stable. If it works you need to test when it stops working. Some Mainboard overclock RAM by default, perhaps you need to deactivate that.
                        If this dont help, remove on e of the two (i guess you have 2x8GB) RAM, test if its run stable, if not test with the other one.

                        If this all dont help, you need to test every pc component in a working pc.... sadly there arent many other ways.

                          UNEXPECTED KERNEL MODE TRAP and ATTEMPTED EXECUTE OF NOEXECUTE MEMORY what failed: monitor.sys

                          These were the 2 new ones last night, basically got all sorts of errors so far. Pc is not new btw, bought it from a guy that used it for editing and it should be 2 years old. I too think it's something like that cause yesterday I updated the drivers found through the link above but changed nothing, just the type of errors. Thank you guys


                            look, its a different story every time u add more information.
                            your OS kernel loads to ram every time u boot system. OS tries to execute commands from ram after boot so if thats the error either the kernel not loaded completely on ram which means your OS didnt installed properly/lost important files or your ram is faulty and lose data.
                            you can google how to test ram and if its not your ram u should re install OS.
                            if u bought the pc from someone else, did you install fresh OS on it or not?

                            Blue screen of death

                              I keep adding it 'cause it changes every time. Nope I didn't install anything new, only games and drivers

                              Btw I ran the windows memory diagnostic twice and it found no errors

                                You bought the PC 2nd hand, but why did you claim it to be "new"? That's just confusing. That's a new layer of possible problems.
                                Can you clearly lay out your PC specifications so that we can know how to help?
                                -CPU, with clock speeds
                                -CPU cooler being used
                                -GPU, manufacturer, clock speeds
                                - RAM sticks full name and description, speed you're running it at
                                -PSU unit
                                -Storage drives, type, capacity


                                  -dx 11


                                    i mean the bought pc from someone else info. not the errors.
                                    i never had ram problems in my life, im using laptop which not supposed to have these kinda problems, thats why i told u google it.
                                    if u are sure about ram not being the problem, its the OS. u should reinstall it.
                                    i think u should always install fresh OS when u buying someone else PC. i dont see any reason against it!

                                        trust me your pc specs will not change anything as long as you are using someone elses OS. just install fresh one and u should be fine.


                                          Um... your RAM sticks’ speed is slow as hell.
                                          Anyways, try the RAM first, if there’s still many problems, just fresh install OS like Kowa said


                                            8 x 2 gb wtf ?


                                              HOLD UP.

                                              I still highly suggest following the above advice, of fresh installing OS since you’re sure it’s not the RAM.
                                              But can you please check the overclock on your CPU!? Is that your OC or did you get it like that from the guy whom you bought it from? Because that looks like a retarded OC.


                                                A$D pretty sure that’s supposed to be 2x8GB but he wrote it inverted xD


                                                  women as bulldog says

                                                  Blue screen of death

                                                    How can someone that writes 8x2 be sure of anything regarding pc lmaooo anyway my bad

                                                    I didn't change anything but if I'm not mistaken the guy mentioned something about the OC, shouldn't it just slow down the performance when gaming and not cause crashes though? And how is that retarded, please enlighten me cause I know nothing about this stuff


                                                      A bad overclock, meaning the power you’re feeding the CPU not matching the clock speeds, or cooling not being enough for the heat being output, could lead to blue screens and crashes like what you are experiencing. Also as you may know, overclocking the CPU potentially shortens its lifespan. Just keep that in mind.
                                                      Anyways, next step if you experience crashes even after fresh installing OS would be to check the OC on your CPU(possibly also GPU), try resetting it back to stock.
