BSOD with multiple triggers(startup,Shutdown playing games)

Q: BSOD with multiple triggers(startup,Shutdown playing games)

Hi I've been experiencing BSOD crashes for a while now and need help getting them fixed.
They can occur on startup, shutdown and while playing games. But they can also appear at other random times. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: BSOD with multiple triggers(startup,Shutdown playing games)

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.)

Hi there,

You have a few hardware related Bugchecks,

Bug Check 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (Windows Debuggers)

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

You had one of those above.

You had a couple of these,

Bug Check 0x3B: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (Windows Debuggers)

BugCheck 1A, {5003, fffff70001080000, 5631, 4f0209}
Bug Check 0x1A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (Windows Debuggers)

The working set free list is corrupt. This is probably a hardware error.

Quite a few of these,

Bug Check 0x50: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (Windows Debuggers)


Bug check 0x50 usually occurs after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, be it main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM).
Another common cause is the installation of a faulty system service.
Antivirus software can also trigger this error, as can a corrupted NTFS volume.

Since you list Microsoft Security Essentials as your AV, we can rule that out as a possible cause.

There was a mention of your display driver,

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys

start end module name

Translations: 0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
You can try updating it.

With so much pointing to hardware though I would definitely run some tests.

Hi Prezesik92,

The system seems to be crashing due to 'dxgmms1.sys' driver (DirectX Graphics MMS).

This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.
The issue could be due to a corrupt/outdated driver. It could also point at a possible 'hardware failure'. You may try using the system in 'Safe Mode'; if the system does not crash in this diagnostic environment, a 'driver' is likely to be the root cause.

Please try the following steps:
1. Uninstall 'AVG & AVG Utilities 2011' from the system. Restart it and update 'Windows' to install 'Microsoft Security Essentials'; recheck results.

I am having my computer BSOD on multiple different games and am unsure what is causing the issue.
I am having problems on the following games (that I know of): Witcher 3, 7 Days to Die, GTAV (only once and never again).
I am able to load up the game and use the menus just fine, but when I load into the actual game, my display crashes and my computer becomes unresponsive to where I have to do a hard shutdown.
About a month ago, I upgraded my graphics card from a Nvidia GT 530 to a GTX 970. I originally thought there might be an issue with the drivers, so I did a clean wipe of the video drivers and reinstalled them using the provided software with the 970, then I updated them from the GeForce Experience. I am still getting the same result.
A few weeks ago, I heard that the streamer service for Nvidia Shield may be causing the crashes, so I disabled that to see if it made any difference. It seemed to work for awhile, but then the crashes came back. I am at a roadblock and confused of what to do. Included is the .zip package for the info. Thanks for any help!
EDIT: I was able to find the exact code from the bugcheck. It was 0x00000116.

Hello, Gameguy007 and welcome to the forums. I have check your dump files and all of the dumps are the same. I also looked at some of your error reports and have found some things I would like you to uninstall. This is the results of your dump files

I've been having issues with a computer I've built recently. Whenever I play games like WoW, Killing Floor, and now Diablo 3... I'll be able to play for awhile, but maybe after 30min to an Hour my computer will just crash. Black Screen on monitors, sounds coming from speakers (no music continues normally. It's more like the last sound going "ErerrrrrrRGghhhhh" lol). No blue screens or anything.

Now... I originally thought it could be a GPU issue. But i've already RMA'ed one card, and gotten a new one. This one has run pretty well so far. But I don't know. I'd feel awkward RMAing another card.

I've performed Stress tests on both my CPU and RAM for at least 4hours on each with no errors coming up for either.

SO I am kind of stumped. I was reading "BSOD while playing games" and thought my issue was a bit similar.

I went through the steps that writhziden had posted in that thread. Disk Check - I had no errors on any of my drives. SFC - I had ran that before a few times. And finally the Verifier, which caused my system to crash in regular start-up. But it was fine in safe mode.

SO yea... I'm looking for any help that might help me resolve my issue with black screening while playing games.

So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.

Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.

I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:


Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:

So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I ... Read more

Issues started not long ago when I purchased a new gtx 750 ti graphics card. Get varied Bsod error messages such as video_tdr_failure nvlddmkm.sys, and DPC_Watchdog_violation as well as one or two others. These issues present themselves upon starting of certain games. Specifically first person shooters but is rarely a problem for my most played game League of Legends. Very easily replicate-able as it happens everytime i start said games. Starts out as odd stretched lines and screen disturbances (spasm like textures and light shafts in game) and then black screen with sound followed by either display kernel crash message of my video driver or complete computer shutdown.

Also included below is a DxDiag system info save file.

Hello, my computer is recently crashing, I recently had some work done to it hardware wise and they had to do a fresh Windows 7 install because of all the hardware changes that Vista couldn't handle. They said if you do a lot of hardware changes, especially the motherboard you'd have to do a fresh install of Vista, and I said just do Windows 7. So a month it was working wonderfully on extensive games and recently maybe within this week my computer would randomly when loading games crash to the motherboard splash screen. Then when my computer starts up I see an AMD popup, and a Windows has recovered from an unexpected crash.

Here's my dump file:

A:BSOD error when playing multiple games

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

Over the course of using windows 10 I have came across multiple BSOD errors, at least 5 different ones while I play some games. Most games I have noticed or remember are games like World of Warcraft, No Man's Sky, Overwatch. But there are many other games that I have not experienced this such as Guild Wars 2, GTA5, or Civ 6. I have tried to reinstall Windows 10 as well as looking up the different errors and find ways to correct but nothing i did help.

This has happened twice today once as i was playing Watch Dogs 2 for about 30 minutes and then again while playing Overwatch for about 30-45min.
I'm close to resorting going back to Windows 7 as I never got these errors while that. Any help will be appreciated

Okay so I have a custom built pc and for the longest time I didn't have a gpu, I just used the internal graphics. I just bought a gpu this month and after using it for a while I've been getting BSOD after quitting my games. The game will be in the middle of quitting, then bam, blue screen. I have a couple of bent motherboard pins which I feel could be causing the problem because one of my RAM slots doesn't work either. I plan on buying a new motherboard soon but I was told by a friend that it might just be the gpu itself, hence why I am making this post. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This has been going on for some time. It is a i7-4790k and I've had my entire first build for about 8 months. The BSOD error 0x0124 started 4 or 5 months ago and I've had absolutely no time to deal with it, I played a game here and there but not much. Now I want to get this fixed. Games it BSODs on : GTA V, Battlefield 4, Shogun 2, ARK, and a couple more. The times vary from when I start playing to the BSOD, it could be 20 minutes or a couple hours, it's random. I noticed on Battlefield 4 I only get about 5 minutes on it before it BSODs.

My processor is still under warranty, I bought it at a Fry's Electronics. Any suggestions as to what I should do? Send it in to Intel?

A while ago my USB ports came detached, and a few days ago my last one finally broke off. I called Dell Tech Support asking for a number, and the person on the phone insisted on using remote access to uninstall/reinstall/install drivers for me, despite the fact that the USB drive itself was rattling around inside.

They then sent someone out to replace the motherboard. After the MB was replaced, I immediately plugged in my brand new 2TB external hard drive, and copied all of my .iso game files. After that I started getting random shut downs with no warning, no freezing, and no blue screen. I would be using my computer, and all of a sudden it would be turned off. At the time, I'm pretty sure I was playing Sid Meiers Civ 5.

I called Dell back, and they said they would send someone out to replace the motherboard again. I called on Thursday, May 3rd, about an hour after the guy who replaced my MB for the first time left my house. Later that night, my computer started freezing up, with audio stuck on repeat in a half second loop or so, and I would have to shut it down manually. Then it started BSODing.

Today (May 8th) they replaced my MB, Heat Sink, and Fan. This time I was able to play Civ 5 for about 10 minutes before it blue screened. I then transferred the .iso file to my computer instead of my external, and I was able to play for perhaps an hour, hour and a half before it blue screened.

In the past(and today) i have been getting plenty of BSOD's. Most of them happen when i play games like Planetside 2 but some of them happen when i am doing something like watching a video or leaving it on for an extended period of time. I have also been getting plenty of freezes, forcing me to restart my computer.

My CPU fan is quite loud and i first thought all of the BSOD's were caused by my computer overheating, so i put a relativity small sized fan right next to the computer. It quietened down the noise a little bit but it did not stop the freezes and BSOD's from coming.

Ah, almost forgot, when i was cleaning out my CPU fan, i did not have any thermal paste on me, so there isn't any new paste between the chip and heat sink.

I'm new to all of this, For about 11 days now, I've been encountering random BSOD errors. I uninstalled a few games thinking they could be causing it but the errors have become more frequent since. I followed the instructions on the BSOD posting thread and attached is the information needed.

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

Your BIOS dates from 2007. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one).

There is a strong likelihood that this system is not compatible w/Win8 or 8.1 If that's the case, we just won't be able to fix all of the problems. The fact that the system may have been working well up to this point isn't significant, as updated Windows functions can cause previously unseen incompatibilities to become seen. We will continue to make suggestions as long as you're willing to work on it - but in the end it's your choice to decide if it's compatible or not. If it's not compatible, then the "fix" would be to revert to Win7 or even WinVista.
There are enough signs here that I have to wonder about this installation. Should this be a pirated copy of Windows, please be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to). If that's the case, our efforts to help may just waste your time. Second... Read more

First run it with all the existing/installed RAM modules. If it comes with no error, all is good.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

I only have a HDMI connection, so even though I can sometimes see a flicker of a blue screen, I can never see what it says before it resets... I am attaching the grab all files. I have been like this since before Christmas, and it is so frustrating. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Thank you very much!

Hey guys I've been having an issue for about 2 months now, basically when I'm playing games (WoW / LoL / Titanfall) my PC will randomly freeze, then my monitor will just shutdown. I then have to manually shutdown my PC using the power button as it remains turned on even after the monitor shuts down.

On reboot I get an error saying "Display driver stopped responding but has recovered" and after checking the event viewer I have multiple errors before each unexpected shutdown. Also sometimes on reboot after 5 mins the PC will blue screen resulting in the same display driver error but it hasn't done that for a few weeks now.

Here are the errors that appear prior to the shutdown:

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.

Greetings, 7 forum. So let me start at the beginning of what's been happening. I bought my Cyberpower gaming PC from Newegg to play games like League of Legends, World of Warcraft, etc., and upon recieving the computer, which came with an integrated video card, I disabled the IVC and installed a dedicated video card that I'd been using with my previous machine, which was comparable in terms of power. Why use it, then? Well, it's a dedicated video card, and I've been told that dedicated video cards are better to use than integrated video cards. That being said, random, frequent BSOD's started happening for seemingly no reason.

I emailed Cyberpower's tech support team, telling them of my problems. They told me that the various error codes I'd given them were pointing to my RAM. As it turns out, one of the RAM sticks was bad, and they RMA'd me a new one.

The first round of codes, before getting the new RAM stick, included:

0x00000019 BAD_POOL_HEADER

There were also other ones, but I didn't take a picture / write them down. At that point, I'd had almost TEN Blue Screens. After getting the new RAM stick, I also removed the dedicated vidoe card and re-enabled the integrated video card, figuring maybe that was causing issues. It didn't help, nor did the new RAM stick. I even re installed Windows for good measure. I'm still getting BSODs, 2 of the error codes I've gotten are:

I have been experiencing multiple crashes from a few different games. The one most prominent is Dragon Age: Origins where it crashes once it starts. I have a 50/50 crash rate on other games like Hearthstone and Smite. It only crashes when a game is being played and only when the game is being booted. Some games have never caused a BSOD like League of Legends and Fallout NV. These crashes have happened for a few years now but since this computer was a backup I really never minded it much until it became my main PC for now.

I recently got a problem with sudden BSOD when playing games such as Armed Assault 2 and DCS A10.

The problem seems to have build itself up over time.


The BSOD is similar to other issues on this forum, with sudden stuttering sound, freezing and black screen, and then the computer restart itself. There seems to be no triggers to the cause as it happens at random times within a minute or two ingame. (meaning, looking at things in game that puts pressure on the graphics card doesn?t trigger the BSOD)
When the computer reached the desktop, I got this error message:

Since last weeks I've had multiple BSOD's and it seems to happen mostly while I play games through steam. Games like GTA4, The witcher 2 and Sleeping dogs cause the crashes while I for some reason can play Shogun Total war 2 for hours without problems. Games that are not connected to steam, like Battlefield 3, seems to work good as well. I don't have any cd/dvd tools like Daemon tools installed. I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this problem.

A:BSOD playing games with Steam. Multiple error messages.

Hello Kwandao and welcome to Sevenforums.

Have you tried to disable the Steam Overlay? To do this-* Launch Steam and click on the "Settings" button. Click on the "In-Game Settings" tab.
* Uncheck the box next to "Enable Steam Community In-Game" and click OK.
* Disable the Steam Overlay on specific games only by right-clicking on the game title, click on "Properties" and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the "General" tab.
BSOD Analyse


Different culprits pointed towards your ATI Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.

* Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
* Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
* Download Driver Sweeper
* Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your START
* Select all the ATI components and analyse them
* Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously


* Have you updated your directX recently?
* What's your temperatures just before a crash?
* Does the crashes only happen on demanding games?
* Have you checked threads on Steams Forums?

Does the BSOD's happen with other games / other circumstances, if so what are they?
Just for trouble shooting purposes go ahead and physically remove the GPU from the system

Hello. I am running windows 7 Home Premium 64bit edition on a custom built PC. I have had several BSOD's in the past few months that have started to be a bit more frequent than the last 2 and a half years running my pc so I'm trying to figure out what could be causing it as I need this computer for the 3d work that I do. I ran the log program and attached the crash dump files here. I just finished running a memtest and a chkdisk and neither returned any errors that I could find although some text briefly appeared on the screen upon startup. I can still run Windows but it occasionally BSODs when running multiple applications or just completely hangs. It doesn't happen every day, just randomly every few weeks thankfully. Earlier today I got a BSOD for page fault in non-paged area then when I restarted I got a bccode 50 bcc1 FFFFFA90130A97F0 bcc2 00000000000000 bcc 3 FFFF8800181D46F bcc 4 000000005 BSOD so I started it in safe mode and ran the aforementioned diagnostics. When the PC was shutting down windows from safe mode in order to start the tests it took 8 minutes to shut down and then I ended up turning it off manually. If someone could take a look at my logs and figure out what is causing these BSOD's that would be fantastic. I'm also wondering what kind of books I need to read/things I need to learn to be able to properly diagnose these issues myself in the future because I would love to be able to make sense of this stuff myself instead of having to just rely on google...

Recently, my computer has started freezing up more often, sometimes it gives out a 'dragged-out' sound before dying(in typical BSoD's) and sometimes it doesn't. Seldom do I get a BSoD file/problem alert from it if it freezes up.

The freezing up/BSoD may happen anytime, sometimes right after start-up, while playing games(league of legends), or just surfing the web.

In addition, sometimes, when I start-up, my computer fails to detect the graphic card, and I need to plug the video cable from my graphics card to the motherboard to see the screen.

Hi all,

I built my first computer about six months ago. After first completing it it never really crashed. Now, I get BSOD regularly when playing games (Civ 5, DOTA 2, Shogun 2) or when streaming netflix, just talking on skype. Here's just one of the error codes and dump files. This is a new BSOD code, the previous one was 3b or 3e. I can't quite be sure. But, I'll start recording it and post a record in these forums. Thanks for your support guys.

I'm not sure how to upload the dump file as it is in a .dmp format. Not sure if I can convert that to something.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) probably a driver.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have Raid update its Driver.


*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so y... Read more

You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example it is of my own Ivy Bridge desktop and you need to scroll to that section which gives the volts send a pic if you can please - this is just for starters.

I have been having troubles with my Graphics cards ever since I got this computer. Some days it works fine others its a complete disaster. Recently I got a few games and when the games I used to play crashed or whatnot it would just close the game. Now I am getting BSOD and having it reboot my PC. I use Soluto to help me find what what might of caused the problem and this is what is sent to me :

Bug check code: 00000116

Probably caused by: dxgkrnl!TdrResetFromTimeout Driver

The VIDEO_TDR_ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

Keep in mind I have two of the same graphics cards. I used to cross-fire but then Realized no games would play with it activated so I disabled them. After a while I tried messing with my setup so I could have three monitor setup ( two monitor and 1 40"HDTV. While im still using only two of the monitors I orignally got my first BSOD when i was trying to play a game on the TV monitor and no longer use the TV.

I am very out of touch with computer skills and I dont know anymore what else I should do to try and fix this problem. Ive thought about getting a new graphics card to try and solve the problem because for the last few years problems only seem to occur with the Card and nothing else but i could find another solution then spending money that would be great. Thanks in advance!

A:BSOD after playing games + Random BSOD on startup


Your dumps don't have a probable cause, keep blaming windows files (Not true causes)

Since everything was fine with the laptop before the power failure, your best bet would be to dismantle and reconnect all the hardware components (if you're good with it) and do a fresh install of windows on your laptop

Fill in your specs and the make of the laptop

Hey guys,

Been trying to deal with a BSOD problem that resulted from KERNEL_CHECK_SECURITY_FAILURE (or something along those lines). I did some research and got it could be the RAM, HDD, or Drivers.

Scanning the RAM for 16 hours gave me two errors on test 10, passes 1 & 9. Testing the sticks individually found nothing, testing both slots found nothing. I can only assume those were false positives.

Next, I tried driver verifier. Boom. Instant crashes. Now, disabling it, I have the minidump file. Can someone tell me which driver is causing this problem? Thanks!

A:BSOD on startup/playing games. Inconsistent, but common.

They're not false.

In addition, update or uninstall and remove hardware:

I keep getting the following BSOD error codes:-

On Tue 25/12/2012 00:01:06 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\122512-22744-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: cdd.dll (0xFFFFF9600067DC51)
Bugcheck code: 0x50 (0xFFFFF900C32EE7A0, 0x0, 0xFFFFF9600067DC51, 0x0)

On Mon 24/12/2012 16:43:42 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\122412-19312-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x705C0)
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF80002E4FC5E, 0xFFFFF880092A4E40, 0x0)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
( full code 0x0000003B )

I think I resolved 0x0000003B with a Hot Fix provided by Microsoft. The 0x00000050 is the one that I can't resolve only seems to happen when I play games in full screen mode. Haven't received the error else where.

Every time that I try to open certain games I get an instant crash that only sometimes shows the BSOD. Other times it just drops and comes back on. These games include Serious Sam 3, Saints Row 3, and Lord of the Rings: War of the North. I never even get to see a logo or a menu, the game never quite opens.

The diagnostic report is attached with my username as the .zip name.

EDIT: I do not overclock, and seeing as it is on start up of these games I don't believe it is a heat issue.

Your CPU information:

AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor, 3100 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
But it actually says:

0: kd> !sysinfo cpuinfo
[CPU Information]
~MHz = REG_DWORD 3332
Component Information = REG_BINARY 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
Configuration Data = REG_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
Identifier = REG_SZ AMD64 Family 21 Model 1 Stepping 2
ProcessorNameString = REG_SZ AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor
VendorIdentifier = REG_SZ AuthenticAMD
So apparently it is appearing that the system is overclocked. It is running on more megahertz than stock.

As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

You may not believe that it is a heat related issue, but as the computer is years old, we need to check the heat, as the bugcheck codes are mostly stop 0x124 and sometimes stop 0x101. Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Recently I have been getting BSODs on my computer. Most of them are from startup where they point their fingers at ntoskrnl.exe

Today, one interrupted me in the middle of League of Legends, pointing at clfs.sys

I've attached the the stuff the sticky page told me to, containing 4 dump files.
