Bsod while playing games

Q: Bsod while playing games

hey guys just upgraded my computer from the scratch..and after 2 months suddenly my computer started showing blue screen while starting any games after 3 to 5 mins of gameplay the problems occurs.

i have updated my graphic and sound drivers which are essentials.

and checked the graphic card on my other computer and there was no problem with the card as i played the same games like gta4,mafia2,portal2,red faction armageddon.

my graphic card is gtx 460 se palit and required 2 six pins power plug need to be attached to the card..

and my psu is coolermaster gx750 sli

so this suggests my gup is not the culprit and i have checked my ram with memtest and there was no problem with that also so what u guys think of my problem t might be psu.my computer is running stable with no bsod while idle only when playing games bsod occurs..

i am attaching the mini dump file i don't know how to open the mini dump files..
hope u guys help me..

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

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.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005


Code:

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

Hello,

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:

- IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
- BAD POOL HEADER
- MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
- SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
- APC_INDEX_MISMATCH

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

Hi guys! I badly need your help. I started getting BSOD two weeks ago.

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

Short version: My PC is getting a BSOD at random times when full screen gaming. The BSOD screen says the video card times out.

Long Version:
I have a gaming PC that a friend generously gave me when he built a new one. It's worked great, but in November the Tagan ITZ 700 watt power supply died. He had planned to do SLI and never did, so during Neweggs holiday sale I picked up a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 thinking it should be sufficient.

Everything has run smoothly with the new PSU except for the fact that when playing games like Torchlight 2 and Starcraft 2, my machine will BSOD. I had random BSOD's with Starcraft 2 and then suddenly had 4 nights in a row with no problems and then today it keeps crashing at the same spot in the campaign. There is little consistency to the crashes other than that and under normal operations, like email, web browsing, etc, it has only BSOD'd once and that was during a youtube video.

My first thought is that the one thing that has changed recently is the PSU and prior to that I only recall a rare crash here and there. I thought maybe my new PSU wasn't good enough, but everything I've read online about the requirements for the GTX 460, including the manual, say 450 watt minimum and I exceed that.

Here is a list of things I have tried:

- Updated video card and mobo drivers, I have also uninstalled the nvidia drivers, run Driver Sweeper in safe mode, and reinstalled drivers in normal mode.

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

Hello, tbrown26. I will try to help you with this.

None of your dump files were overly definitive, as usual. The first thing I would like you to do is fill out your system specs in detail. Sometimes we have to look up a component and Manufacturer and model number helps us to do that.
Please fill out your System Specs


   Information
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.

Welcome

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

NOTE: DM log collector seem to be getting stuck when collecting msinfo32.nfo, so the attached file can be incomplete. Please let me know if it can take longer than 10 minutes to collect this data so i will run the program again.

BSOD #1: It started at around January 15th - basically when i shoot down the system, theres a suprisingly short windows update. Then whenever i boot the PC and it starts to configure the update, bluescreen pops up with an error code 0x0000007E and i have to use system recovery to succesfully run the system.

BSOD #2: Ive never fixed it and it occures since i bought the PC. When i play games (and very rarely when using internet browser) my PC is getting random freezes, display driver errors, monitor is turning off and of course sometimes BSODs happen. Ive tried several different drivers, memory/hdd tests, temperatures, stress tests, 2 different monitors and GPUs, and plugging out/in hardware inside the PC case then i gave up. So basically all the BSODs listed in a ZIP file until January 15th are related to this problem.

No Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 140 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:





I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.



This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?





Multiple Card Reader USB Device USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_MULTIPLE&PROD_CARD__READER&REV_1.00\058F63666438&0 This device is disabled.



Please enable the device and then ensure that it's drivers are fully updated to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Then feel free to disable it again if you'd like.

Hi Aviraj & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem.
Let's check the stack -

Code:
7: kd> knL
# Child-SP RetAddr Call Site

03 ffffd002`01ea7be0 00000000`00000000 nt!KiStartSystemThread+0x16


So, we see that the system was waiting to get a lock on a resource but sadly it was not fulfilled and hence the system crashed . Sadly, the dump file failed to capture the culprit in this case.

Today I launched CoD Black Ops 2 after updating Nvidia drivers from 314.07 WHQL to 314.14 beta... But after 5 minutes of playing a BSoD appears and my computer restart.

I resetted my BIOS because it refused my RAM sticks after the firts BSoD... Now Windows works well, but I get blue screen every time i play a heavy graphics game.

I ran Windows memory diagnostic and it detected a memory problem...
My specs are:

- CPU: Core 2 Duo E6300 @3GHz @1.28V
- RAM: 4,5 GB DDR2 @860MHz @1.92V (1GB PC-6400 + 2GB PC-6400 + 1GB PC-5300 + 512 MB PC-5300)
- Mtherboard: Asus P5Q PRO (@430MHz FSB)
- GPU: PNY GTS 450 1GB GDDR5 @stock frequencies
- 600W PSU

I was able to play normally yesterday, today I had this issue for the first time...
What could be the problem? RAM, GPU?...

Here's my BSoD screenshot:



Any help will be very appreciated.
Now I'm going to run Windows memory test with every single stick of RAM...

Hello cwhite, Welcome to SF

Both of your dump files indicate an 0x124 error which is a hardware error heres some more info for you
BSOD Index
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

To be more specific your files state
BUSL0_SRC_ERR_M_NOTIMEOUT_ERR
this indicates the processor sent out a read request to L0 cache, and there was a delay in return

if your system is overclocked in anyway stop straight away if not check your cpu cooling as this may be caused by overheating, check your system/cpu temps and if they seem ok then try some stress testing of the cpu but be careful to monitor cpu temps at all times while stressing
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Hello!

I am getting BSOD errors on occasion, as far as I can tell only when playing games.
I was having this happen a few months ago and was going to post, but it stopped suddenly - until yesterday! Now I've had another BSOD yesterday & today. Yesterday happened while playing Skyrim. Today happened while playing Age of Empires Online. I have previously tried updating my graphics drivers - I have *not* done so recently before these past two days, when the crashes started again.

One thing to note: It seems very random.. I can play a game for hours on end, and have no problems..

I tried to follow the guidelines for posting, I hope it is all correct.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.


tl;dr - BSOD while playing games. Can play for hours without it happening. Cannot reliably reproduce. Has not happened outside of a game. Thanks for your help!

A:BSOD while playing various games

You appear to be running a DELL OEM on a retail motherboard, which is not possible unless it employs a hackers activation bypass. There is no point troubleshooting this until we can be sure the problems aren't caused by the counterfeit installation.

My recommendation is to purchase a genuine Windows 7, then format and reinstall Windows 7.

First of all, first time posting a thread here so don't judge me all to harshly if I do something incorrect.

I am getting BSOD's while playing several different games such as Sleeping dogs, SMITE and War Thunder. Also has started to happen while I am using ACDSee.

The message I get when seeing the BSOD is "STOP: 0x00000124 (0x000000000000000,0xFFFFFA800794E024,0X00000000B6004000,0X00000000F4000175)

I have earlier been able to receive dumps(accidentally deleted these) but in the last week my computer no longer saves the dumps for some reason. I have followed some guides as to manually set the page file but to no avail.

(I have a vague memory of that ntoskrnl.exe was to blame in the last minidump which i saw)

Hello Qyratar, Welcome to SF

Afraid there is nothing specific we can tell you without any dump files other than the fact that 0x124 = WHEA uncorrectable error = hardware issue BSOD Index

Have a look at this thread Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
As you said it happens when gaming then its likely to be related to GFX drivers/temperatures so i would start there

A:BSOD while playing games

Hello and welcome V1 now in the dump files I can see some Windows updates problems but firstly I see you mention cooling problems. Now just cleaning the fan is only part way to sorting that out if possible do this
CLEANING A LAPTOP FAN & COOLER RAD
The thing you do is to turn over the laptop and shine a very bright light into the air intake aperture (you will see the fan there) and then while doing that look at the outlet vent on the end of the laptop you should see the light quite clearly shining through the cooling " radiator" if not it is clogged and will need cleaning as will probably the fan opening.
You can do this by blowing it out using a compressed air can in short bursts.
BUT ONE WORD OF WARNING DO NOT blow the air into the fan opening without inserting say a plastic rod or large cable tie to stop the fan from spinning as the air blast will spin the fan at a very high speed that it is not designed to take and may wreck the bearing!!
To clean the "rad" I use those pipe cleaners to GENTLY loosen the crud and then blow it outof course disassembly makes life so much easier
Now in my pic the machine is actually a Toshiba set up but yours might be the same or slightly diferent but the principle is the same .
The other thing is can you post the temps on the CPU and graphics please as the thermal compound may need renewing - use Speccy https://www.piriform.com/speccy - a snip pic would be good see this

Hi Guys!

The BSOD-s started with Battlefield 3. Then I tried every kind of solution which i found online, but nothing worked. Then I recently did a full system refresh, Battlefield crashed again. So I got used to it, and played other games like Trine 2 or Counter Strike Global Offensive. Those games worked just fine, but now they're also crashing. Anything else works fine, older games also work. After 10 or 15 minutes of play. Usually I find the root of the problem but now this tricks me well.

Now the PSU is suspicious for me. My card needs minimum 500w, i have this exact amount. But maybe it's not enough for fully powering the videocard.

Thank you in advance!

Crashing when playing games (osu!)
I used WhoCrashed to find the drivers and BSOD info However I don't know what to do next..

Welcome to WhoCrashed (HOME EDITION) v 5.51
This program checks for drivers which have been crashing your computer. If your computer has displayed a blue (or black) screen of death, suddenly rebooted or shut down then this program will help you find the root cause and possibly a solution.

Whenever a computer suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue (or black) screen of death, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure. In reality, on Windows most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, many computers do not show a blue screen unless they are configured for this. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

This program will analyze your crash dumps with the single click of a button. It will tell you what drivers are likely to be responsible for crashing your computer. It will report a conclusion which offers suggestions on how to proceed in any situation while the analysis report will display internet links which will help you further troubleshoot any detected problems.

Hello,

I've been getting BSODs since upgrading to Win8 last year but after a while I decided to format my HDD and get back to Win7 hopping it would help with the blue screens. It didn't.

It only seems to happen when I play relatively demanding games after 1 hour or so... So, Dota 2, CS:GO and even WoW, and yet I can play Hearthstone for hours with no problem. Does that mean it's a memory problem?

If any further step is required to make your life easier, please ask and I will do/give anything needed!

First of all, the display driver version applied there is a bad one.

Hello and welcome to Sevenforums!
The program that is causing the BSOD is Firefox.

Do you experience the BSOD when you are at one site or random sites?

Hi all, i seem to get BSOD when playing GTA IV and COD5. It happens at random intervals. I have the BSOD picture but can post it once i have 5 posts.


I have saved the report generated by Everest in a word document.

Advise me if you want the specs copied here or if i can submit the word file as an attachment.

Kind Regards

Whenever im playing games my PC will eventually blue screen, altough it can take hours before it actually happens. Never happend when not playing games.

Tried it with different ram and in all possible slots, didnt change anything. Graphicscard worked fine in a different PC and I tried multiple driver versions. No overheating issues either, HDD is working fine as well.

System:
Athlon 64 X2 6000+
M2N SLI Deluxe
9800 GT
PSU is a LC 550 V2.2 with:
+3.3v +5v +12V1 +12V2 -12V +5Vsb
22A _ 21A _ 15A _ 10A _ 0.5A _ 2.5A
(Im guessing thats not the issue but I could try it with a better one if I had to)

Then i tried the driver verifier and I get blue sceens as soon as I boot (but after the Startup Repair/Safe Mode selection stuff).

Dump of that attached.

Might be unrelated, but the PC wouldnt boot with 4 1GB sticks installed, its working fine with 3 though. Tried it with lowered frequency, didnt change anything. Was going to try it with slightly bumped up voltage but the BIOS doesnt seem to have that option oO

Edit: Not sure if i tired the other PCI-E slot yet (most of this happend 1.5 years ago and I didnt need the PC in the meantime), so im doing that now just in case.
Edit2: Nope, still happening. Now it just frooze completely instead of going to a blue sceen though, which is a first iirc.

A:BSOD when playing games

As per the crash dump you uploaded (which is driver verifier enabled), the BSOD is caused by Daemon Tools.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Now disable driver verifier. Let us know how it works.
