BSOD whilst playing any game ranging from L4D2 to LoL

Q: BSOD whilst playing any game ranging from L4D2 to LoL

I've been experiencing crashes for a pretty long time now. I've been able to exclude my vid card, ram, psu, overheating and i think my hard drive but the one i've replaced it with isn't really top of the line either.
I've been on the OC3D forum and they advised me to post everything here. I'll include the log in this thread.

Preferred Solution: BSOD whilst playing any game ranging from L4D2 to LoL

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD whilst playing any game ranging from L4D2 to LoL

hello DJundertaker25, welcome to Seven Forums. I will try to help you with this problem, if I can. First, I would like you to complete your system specs in a little more detail if you would. Sometimes we need to look up a particular part and need the Manufacturer and model number. I would also like to know your PSU and CPU cooler and case can sometimes help. The instructions I give others may help you do that.
Please fill out your System Specs

Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

As far as your dump files, The latest is about a month old, which striles me as unusual. so please make sure your system is configured for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD.

Almost all of the latest 6 or seven dump files were fairly consistent. Of the 7 I looked at, 5 of them blamed this:

start end module name

That is your Killer e2200 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller which is most likely a part of your Motherboard drivers. Please go to the Motherboard Manufacturer's site and see if you can find an updated driver.

Also blamed was

Which of course your graphics card. perhaps updating to a newer driver could help. Please update the card like this.
I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.

You also got on 1 dump file and Ox124 which is a generic hardware fault that is very general and gives no information of what it is. So, we will wait until you update the above drivers and see if that helps. In the mean time, if you are overclocking anything, please set it back to default levels. I am not opposed to overclocking, but an unstable system will never have a stable overclock. So, please set everything to default levels, at least until we can get you stable.

After you have completed the above please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Hi all,

I've recently switched over from my old HDD to a shiny new SSD. It was a fresh windows install and I've installed all drivers for my gpu, mobo etc. fresh onto this. It seems now though that whenever I play a game I get a BSOD. I've had this happen so far whilst playing Skyrim, EVE online and Company of Heroes, and I haven't really loaded up any other games because there's not much fun if they're going to crash 10 mins in! The crashes occur anywhere between after 10 mins of play and after 1hr. I thought it was a temperature issue as Skyrim used to crash before I got the SSD, but seemed to work fine if I put my fan speeds up to ~90% in MSI Afterburner. After 10 mins of EVE online with the fan speeds set to 90% I got a crash the other day though. I've also tried uninstalling and re-installing my graphics drivers and still got a crash :/ I've also updated my BIOS and that hasn't fixed the problem, so I thought I'd post here and see if someone else can help me get to the bottom of this!

System specs are:
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Mobo
Intel i5 2500K - Not overclocked
Nvidia GTX480 - Also not overclocked
OCZ Agility 3 64GB SSD
780W PSU

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the forum but I am having trouble since installing a new build and have had numerous BSODS. I have since discovered that the ram I was using was faulty and am in the process of RMAing it. Changing for old ram seemed to give better stability but I am still getting occasional BSOD. The latest was 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). I have run Ccleaner previously to this and it seemed to help but 24hrs later this has happened. I cant seem to figure out what it is and would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me what might be causing this.

GVTDrv64.sys Tue Sep 5 02:10:02 2006 (44FD22CA)
This driver is related to the Gigabyte Easy Tune 6 tool. Which are known problems with windows 7. Also it dates back to 2006. Drivers before 2009 are generally known to cause problems, as well.

Either update the driver here: GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads - Utility - Motherboard or just remove it.

Would you possibly know what this device is?

In the dump file, it is showing a NTFS error.

A:BSOD After Playing L4D2

Any help please?!

Read other 1 answers

I've been getting random BSOD during last 4 months. There's not much in common among them, lately it happens when I play Left4Dead2, but since it's the only game I play it does not say much.
Previous BSODs were sometimes related to (un)mounting SD card in card reader or external hard drive, but I can't say there is any direct connection.
Today it happened twice. First I got L4D freeze (sound froze but I was able to switch to system), I couldn't end the game, then the system became blackscreen (probably when I tried Alt+Tab to the game), then I reset the computer. It froze on BIOS screen (the graphic one), so I reset it again and an old system from the other disk was booted. The main disk was not found at all. I checked BIOS, neither there was it found. So I disconnected one of my disk (the secondary one), BIOS found my main disk, so I reconnected my secondary and both were found. Then I played L4D for like 3 hours and then - BSOD again, something with dxgmms1.sys.

I hope I will find some answers here. Thanks everyone.

I was playing Burnout when the computer crashed and the blue screen error came up. Since then when I turn the computer on all the fans turn on, HDD activity light flashes but nothing appears on the monitor.I can't boot in to safe-mode or enter the bios settings. I've tried using the 8800gt and the onboard gfx (950 gma) but nothing appears. I read that taking the ram out and then turning it on the mobo should beep..but it didn't however it did beep when I didn't plug the cable in to the 8800gt.

I have a Asrock 1333-D667 mobo
Windows 7 RC
2gb Ram
8800gt 512mb
E2180 @2.00GHz

A:Computer had a bsod whilst playing a game..now computer won't boot.

No beep without ram installed does not look good. Here is some basic troubleshooting you can do.

1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical.
2 Remove all add-in cards except the video card
3 Disconnect any usb type device; ie hub, printer, scanner, etc.
4 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 20~30seconds. Replace jumper to keep position.
5 Now attempt a pw ON of the system and see if it will post.

If it does post in the above config, then shutdown and add devices one at a time until you find the problem. If it does not post, then start replacing parts with known good units.

FWIW I would start with the pw supply as the first part replaced.

Laptop Model : Asus N55SF, Nvidia Geforce GT555M, 8gb ram

Problem: BSOD playing most of the games which includes NFS, L4D2, Assasins Creed 3. The only games that don't BSOD are FIFA, Football Manager and WoW (DotA). Been living with it since few months after I bought it.

What I did: clean reinstall of drivers, throw the laptop to service centres (which doesn't help at all)

Note: Im trying my best to follow the rules of this forum, I've already created a crash dump folder. However, for the SF diagnostics tool, I cant seem to get it running, there is an error for the Minidump section. And does it take a long time for other sections to complete? because i left the diagnostics for hours but it didnt run at all. Thanks for understanding as I'm not good with technical stuffs at all and I will upload all the information needed when I know how to get the SF diagnostics running

A:BSOD playing games, most recently L4D2. Caused by nvkflt.sys

Hello everybody,

I own my MSI laptop since last october.
I have random BSOD's, I would say 1-2 per week, and especially when I am playing left fo dead 2 (2-3 per hour), and when I turn the high performance power plan on (5-6 per hour).
I have a killer network card, and I heard that this card was the cause of a lot of BSOD. But I do not see the link between l4d2 and the high perf. power plan.
I always keep all my drivers up to date.
This is very annoying, I alwas leave my laptop on to download games on Origin/Steam, or to do other task and when the BSOD occurs, I am just wasting my time...
Can anybody give me a hand on this problem?

Thank you !

I recently took my PC apart and cleaned it out of dust (it gets very dusty in my room and a 2400RPM intake fan doesn't help). It worked fine at first, then yesterday I found that my PC crashes when a 3D game is running.

It first happened on Multi Theft Auto San Andreas when I was going to test out a new server. I was playing for a matter of a minute before my pair of screens went blank and the familiar repetitive sound when a PC crashes started blaring at me. I restarted my PC using the reset button, as keys were unresponsive.

It booted up without any problems and it loaded up Opera fine. I can use it extensively for hours running normal things such as internet browsers and windowed programs, but as soon as anything 3D is loaded my PC crashes.

Another instance was when I was taking off in FSX, my PC crashed with the same symptoms as the MTA incident.

Its been happening on all of my games that are full 3D, TES:V Skyrim, GTA IV, GTA VC, GTA SA, MTA SA, TF2 and FSX.

Anyone know whats up?

I'm gonna run a system restore and see if it works. I've also got a spare EN7300GE lying around so I can substitute my 285 for that to check if its the graphics card.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600 3.4GHz
RAM: ASint 8GB PC3-10070 1333MHz
HDD: 2TB WD Caviar Green
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Motherboard: Foxconn H61MXV
PSU: Alpine 600W (Just a cheap one until I can get one of higher quality)

A:Crashes whilst playing any form of 3D game

first open up your case and make sure that all connections are seated properly

i have been playing the sims2 since it was first released. i have added almost all expansion packs and recently started dowloading content for the game. i have been working on building an appartment but then, after a while of playing the game, the screen freezes, turns blue (the little egg timer appears) and intermitently returns to the game screen. more recently the blue screen has been appearing almost as soon as i load the appartment lot, and now the whole screen goes black when a sign appears saying "no input signal". it doesn't matter if i shake the mouse or press buttons on the keyboard - the screen will not load again.


I don't know if it is because i have wireless keyboard/mouse, or if it is my graphics card

A:Sims 2 screen turns blue whilst playing then game crashes

Quite likely it's your graphics card that's gone a little awry.

What model graphics card do you have?

To find out,

A) Right click on My Computer on your desktop

B) Click on Properties

C) Go to the Hardware tab in the properties menu

D) Click on Device Manager button

E) Expand the menu in Device Manager labelled Display Adapters

F) Note the model of graphics card that is listed there.


There's a more detailed method of looking up graphics card information.

Go to Start>All Programs>EA GAMES>The Sims 2

And then click on 'Easy Info'. That little program was developed by EA and should give you lots of information about your system, as well as the model of your graphics card, how much memory it uses, what driver version is installed, etc. etc.

Take a screenshot of the resulting information from EasyInfo or copy and paste the information into a Notepad document and upload to this thread if you like.

Hope this helps,

This is my first post here and after looking around for a while I'm still having problems.

I have read the Posting Instructions and used the SF Diagnostic Tool, results included.
I'm not sure if that includes all my system information, but if anything is missing I'll post as soon as I can.

To clarify further the BSOD has happened on a variety of games, sometimes it can happen with in 5mins of loading one other times I am good for a couple of hours or I can play till I've quit the game with no crashing.

I have done scans with MSE, Spybot and Malware Bytes with no issues found.
From looking at other threads, one recommended using a driver scanner to check for updates (SlimDrives), again no updates found.

That's all I can think of for now, also to be honest I am a bit reluctant in having to do a full re-install and would very much like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks in advance,

Hey guys. So for the past few months whenever i play any games i eventually get BSOD.. sometimes 5 minutes in.. sometimes an hour in. I've downloaded blue screen viewer and got a couple of screenshots of a couple of different bsod's.. these 2 seem to be the only ones that come up. I tried running a ram tester and that came back with no errors.. Just wondering if anyone can decipher this for me.
Furthermore.. i don't know if this is related or not but if i leave my computer on for say a day or so, everything starts to lag.. videos start to stutter and there is just lag in general in everything i do.. once i restart it all comes good... for a while but then starts up again. I tried disabling every non essential startup program but it still does it.
Thanks guys!
Also.. i am trying to add the dump files but can't figure out how to gain permission to do so...

Hello all,

Started getting random BSOD during XCOM 2, been absolutely fine up until now. No other BSODs during other activities.

From looking at BlueScreenViewer it points to both cng.sys and ntsokernel.exe. The actual BSOD is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x0000000a.

1. Ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.

Hi all,

Playing Dishonoured has been causing my comp to BSOD every 40 mins or so. Temps seem fine but I thought it could be a PSU problem (it's the no-name one that came with the case).

It BSOD this morning whilst Dishonoured was running but minimised, which is weird because the GPU wasn't working hard and CPU was at about 47%.

So anyway, I was hoping that some altruistic soul could check my crashdumps and make sure it's not a driver issue, before I shell out for a new PSU

Hello all,

This is my first post on these very helpful forums. I hope someone will be able to assist me.

I have a HP ProBook running Windows 7. Ever since I got the laptop, I often get BSODs while attempting to run games (Total War series, The Force Unleashed, just to name a couple). This does not occur with all games, nor does it occur with any other type of software (granted, I mainly use my Windows installation for gaming and other simple tasks such as word processing).

I'm uploading the DM Log Collector output .zip file.

Any help would be greately appreciated.

Hello Guys,

I have been having a problem with my #teamred PC since I built it 2 years ago but it's reached the point where it's getting me down now.
My system is:

Desktop PC
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit sp1 (original os) OEM (I think) - recent clean install by me (again)

*2 years old*
Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU AMD FX 9370 black edition @ 4.4GHz (not overclocked)

Corsair RM Series RM 1000 '80+ Gold' 1000W Power Supply

*1 year old*
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit

I have done a full memtest86 (with both sticks in). It took 18 hours and showed no errors.

I play a lot of hours gaming. I used to play Evolve but got banned for 'product tampering' I didn't tamper with my game. I thought it was the games problem, keep crashing but now I play Titanfall 2 and still crash, I think that it may be my PC?

I Found that my Antec K?HLER H2O 1250 was failing to turn one of the fans so I have replaced that with a Corsair H105 water cooler.

Any help or advice would be most welcome...

I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit over my existing version of 32-bit. Since the upgrade, I have been getting BSOD and auto shut downs whilst playing Battlefield 3 however it has happened a couple times when just using the pc for general use where it would just freeze and start buzzing or restart itself. I have had a couple error messages: dxgmms1.sys, 0x0000007E, 0x0000001E, 0x00000024, 0x0000003B and win32k.sys. I have since tried to repair the install by running it again but the problem is still there. I have done several diagnostic scans, system info scans, device manager etc but none of them report a problem. Never got a BSOD whilst on 32-bit.

What can I do to fix it? Is it possible I have installed 64-bit incorrectly?

MSI Twin Frozr III R6950 OC
EA-500 psu
AMD Phenom II x4 965

A:BSOD/Auto shut down whilst playing BF3

A Google search indicates this is primarily caused by a device driver problem. Have you done a Windows update to get all the latest fixes, including device drivers?

What is the make and model number of your computer? Fill out the System Specs (User CP, Edit System Specs).

This could also be caused by defective RAM. Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

Boot the CD and run for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that.

Hello again TSF,
I've recently encountered 2 Blue Screens within the last 2 days, that appear to occur whilst playing the Facebook game 'Sims Social'...
Of course that's probably just a coincidence, but i've never encountered BSOD's on this computer yet (had it for less than 1 year).
It may also be worth noting that if i remember correctly, World of Warcraft was also running in the background whilst alt-tabbing to play on the Sims Social, just incase this links to any reasoning behind the crashes.

Attached (hopefully) items include the required tests from the sticky, aswell as the 2 dumps from the bsods.

Okay it would appear that it has absolutely nothing to do with Sims Social
Just had another BSoD, literally within 2 hours of my last one, this time whilst playing World of Warcraft.
I have attached the minidump for this crash.

EDIT: Just to note, after restarting the PC from a crash, a directx9 error pops up. Can't remember exactly what it states, but it's something along the lines of it having issues starting up i believe. The little 'boodle-boop' noise that sounds when you plug in a USB plays a couple of times after a reboot from BSoD.
Sorry if any of this is irrelevant, just feel as though I should note everything i can think of! :)

Installing and Using 2 antivirus programs in the same system,usually you dont have double protection. You have double the problems.

Remove avast from your system.
Remove avg from your system.
Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall enable.
You can also use this Good and Free system security combination.
If you had make any changes in windows using TuneUp Utilities,set everything back to default then uninstall TuneUp Utilities.
Generally TuneUp Utilities they dont "tuneup" the system,they mess up the system.
Windows 7 does not need any "external" help.

this is not my first time asking for help on forums. I'm going to link to a page where i have posted most of my problems with this computer and they've tried to help me, anyway here it is: BSoDs & Reboots That's the site where i got most help.

Anyway on to the problem, they've concluded it's memory corruption and i've ran Memtest86+ twice & 6-7 passes on the sticks in different slots. I've tried to change
the speeds and timings on them, but my computer refuses to use them as my computer freezes and upon reboot it gives me some error telling me "Overclock failed, reset to default?" although it isn't really overclocking it's their default value. The BSoD problem persisted. So after not getting any responses to my latest posts i thought that i'd remove one memory stick too see if it'd work. And it did, i've only gotten 2-3 BSoDs since and that's 3 weeks, i was used to getting them 3 times a day if not more. Reason for making this thread is that i got one while idling today.

Hi there,
I would be very grateful of any help you could give me to resolve this problem. I am new to your forums but have read several replies to other peoples posts in an attempt to find a way solve my own, to no avail. (some of what you have suggested is way over my head)
For a few weeks when I shut down the PC it takes ages to shut down, or has to be manually turned off because its clear it isn't going to shut down properly on its own.
The other day my elderly neighbour who doesn't have a computer said her niece had mailed her via my computer with some information she wanted. When I opened the mail there was a .pdf file attached, which I opened, and looked at, shortly afterwards I was looking on the John Lewis website for my neighbour and my PC froze completely. The mouse wouldn't move, and I couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Del, toggle out or do anything but a hard restart. Once I had rebooted, I ran an AVG scan, and it found no threats. The PC worked fine for a few hours, and then when I ran World of Warcraft later that evening, after playing for a short while it froze again. The music still plays in the back ground, but the game froze, and again, couldn't toggle out, or Alt+f4 or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Over the next couple of days it crashed like this again around 6 or 7 times.

All of the dumps are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which can be down to the driver, heat, power to the card, the PCI slot it's in or a bad card among other things. Your driver isn't the most recent from what I can see so we'll try that first.

Yesterday randomly whilst watching youtube with only three windows open, Youtube, Teamspeak and Notepad I got an unexpected restart.

The recovery process when the Laptop restarted achieved nothing other than the computer knowing that it couldn't fix it.

I then did a factory reset of the operating system due to my personal files being on my second internal hard drive.

After which the first thing I did once it had finished setup was bring up Task Manager. I saw my CPU at 100% never stopping. I closed down the program from e-machines (installs things like Windows live essentials) on the second restart and I appeared to get around 5 minutes up time before BSOD.

I copied what was left of anything personal from my C to D (I chose to keep user files) and am now doing this via Safe Mode.

Attached are my Dumps and a Boot Log.

Not to bump the topic however after using Safe Mode for about 30 minutes I wondered if it was over and started in normal mode. Five minutes in I got BSOD and this time it was something different, see attached. Also I saw this topic moved into here and filled out the form:

Heya all

I have a bit of a problem where I'm not sure whether it's driver related or whether something is failing on my computer. My husband seems to think it's driver related but although I can build my own computers when it comes to things like this I'm completely useless!

First off I can't remember whether I had this issue on my previous set when I first installed Windows 7 or whether it's been just when I've upgraded my computer. I just can't recall the first time I started having this problem.

The first thing I noticed was whenever I exited playing a game my screen would go black, with monitor message saying no video output, and the green power button on my monitor would go orange and I would have turn off and then switch my monitor back on for the screen to come back up. Then I noticed that it started doing it randomly when my computer was idle. Again I would turn my monitor off and then back on again to get the screen back up. During these times when this has happened I've never had to reset my computer. I've recently updated my graphics drivers and the issue seems to be a little more often than not now and my husband thinks it's the graphics drivers that's causing it. I've done a search on the internet and I've come across similar problems but requires a restart, which could mean monitor failure or graphics card failure so I'm unsure as to whether it is driver related.

The second issue that I've been having is randomly when I play LOTRO EU client I've been having ... Read more

Ever since getting my New gaming PC (back a year ago) I have been getting BSOD for driver power state failure. These have been very uncommon but have recently sprung back up again.

I have attached the zip file from the debugging program I found on your forums.

I appreciate any help you can offer,

IT looks like your Problems are being cause by yourIphone/pod driver, and by your USB driver:

I recently changed my mother board to an ASUS maximus vii ranger and have been having a few problems with the transition.

I had to replace my SSD initially as i found that it was incompatible with the motherboard. I had been looking at upgrading that part of the system anyway so that was no problem.

Shortly after sorting out the booting issues due to the incompatible SSD i found my computer generating a lot of BSODs during normal operation of windows. This was rectified by updating my windows to the current version using windows update.

The 0124 BSODs have been occurring mainly on intensive games such as GTA V and Far Cry 4.

Any information you could provide me with in order to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD 0124 whilst playing any games after recent motherboard change.

From your post. Please explain with more detail.

Did you do a Clean Install of Windows after the new hardware were installed?

Could you show what power supply is in your computer in My System Specs.

I'm no BSOD expert but those are a few things I noticed.

I have experienced a BSOD multiple times, Probably 10 or so in the last week, and I have no idea what to do at this point. I have tried running file scans, furmark, system restores, memory diagnostics. Nothing works. I am really hoping you guys have a miraculous solution. Thank you for your time!

Lately my system has been crashing frequently when playing games or waking from sleep mode and I have a feeling it's happening due to my GPU but I'm not too sure, I'm scratching my brain here.

I could use some help with figuring out the issue, I've attached my dumps and such.

Thanks in advance for the help!

I get BSOD whenever I am on my computer for 6 hours or over, watching a video and playing a game, or while playing gmod in general. My comp specs are on my profile as best as I could get. My computer runs 68C 26% fanspeed when not playing any games and gets as hot as 86C when playing games.
and my graphics card is up to date.

some of the BSODs were like memory management or time management or something.

Here is my SCF/scannow

and my SF Diagnostic minidump

A:BSOD playing too long, watching a video and playing a game or gmod

Hello and welcome foodwrap Mate you mentioned memory management was brought up.

Now two things you can do here is
a) reseat the sticks

b) run a memtest if the reseating doesn't have any effect

You will need to make a bootable disk for the memtest and set the BIOS to boot from the optical drive then insert the memtest disk and Save and > Enter.

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

The machine will boot into the memtest program - no OS is loaded and it will start "testing" the RAM
Now you need to let it run for at least 8 passes unless you start to get red errors straight away.
The test takes quite while and sometimes people run it overnight.

But do the reseat first and have a look to see if any crud is down in the slots. You can take this chance to have a quick once over of the machine for dust etc

See pics for what it will look like when you run the memtest if you have to.

It seems something is going wrong with my GPU or one of the drivers. I feel like it's most likely hardware failure, due to extreme treatment of my laptop. What happens is the whole screen kind of just gets chopped up into squares (sometimes the patterns vary. Sometimes, it's not even a ****ing pattern, just a ****ed up screen) with different colors. It then crashes and attempts to restart but you can't even read the BSOD because the screen is so messed up. Then it will reboot itself but the screen is screwed and if you attempt to run 'windows normally', it will crash and reboot in an endless cycle. I have to start in safe mode, in which there are a bunch of nasty lines that start from left to right on the screen. I can still use the laptop but over time the screens disappear and the screen finally goes back to normal. After this, I can reboot into normal mode. Help!! I can also send pics showing what happens, I just have to play a game and have it crash for me again haha Thanks!
