    Thanks.. I see these are made in two flavors 520W and 620W. Please post which one you have and am I correct in saying you have an AMD R9 290X?

    Have you removed the Pagefile? Or reduced it to below 200mb?

    Open the run box and type services .msc and click ok. Look down the list in the revealed box for Windows error reporting service and make sure it's set to manual.

    Open an admin command prompt, type:
    sfc /scannow
    Press enter and await results.

    It's already on manual.
    And the sfc/scannow is verification 100% completed, Windows resouce protection did not find any integrity violations.

    Another thing you could try if you haven't already is re-seating the GPU and just making sure the connections are tight. TDR errors can be notoriously difficult to track down and having no dump file means it's even harder I guess. Have you actually checked the mindump folder yourself to see if it contains any dump files?

    Sure it's in the main windows folder. Please post the dump file if you find it.

    Hmm and you sure your settings are set like this:
    Open the run application.
    Type sysdm.cpl in the run box and click ok.
    Look across the top of the system properties box for 'Advanced' and click that.
    Look for 'Startup and Recovery' near the bottom and click 'settings'.
    Near the bottom you'll see a drop down menu under the heading 'write debugging information'.
    In the drop down menu choose ' small memory dump (256KB)'
    Under 'small dump directory' make sure it says %SystemRoot%\Minidump.
    Click ok and your good to go.

    Check your pagefile and make sure the top checkbox is ticked so it's automatically sorted.
