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!

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

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

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

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

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

ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:

- 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.

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

Hi guys! I badly need your help. I started getting BSOD two weeks ago. As far as I can remember the first time I had a BSOD was on the day I installed Max Payne 3 (I read somewhere that the some guy had also this problem when he installed max payne). There were two occasions that I got a BSOD upon starting Max Payne 3. But lately I'm getting BSOD when doing low-load stuffs like browsing with no other apps opened. I've already done memtest with 10 passes with no errors. I'm 24 hours prime95 stable. I just don't get it! I've manually set my timings for my ram. I'm not doing any overclock. Everything is on stock settings.

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.
- Ran GPU-Z to look at temperatures and ran... Read more

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

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

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

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.

I was playing Skyrim and then I hit Esc to go do something and then when I came back to my PC and sat down to play again it BSOD. Its BSOD before but I fixed it by unistalling Windows 7 and reinstalling it. Its been almost a year with out a BSOD. Now its BSODing randomly and sometimes one after another within 2-20min. I replaced my RAM in the past and that helped and also my Graphics card in the past. Im thinking it might be my graphics card. I noticed they stopped making it recently so maybe they stopped with updates too. I don't know. Just want to get my PC running smooth again.

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

I have a 1 year old Toshiba Satellite A660:
Windows 7 Home premium 64bit OEM original install
4GB of ram
Geforce 330m 1GB

Recently while gaming I've been experiencing BSODs and on the blue screen it'll say something about DPC. I'm not sure what's causing this and in reliability moniter it'll usually have something about Windows failing a bugcheck a minute or so before the BSOD the bugcheck states:
The bugcheck was: 0x000000b8 (0xfffffa800a2b1b60, 0xfffff880033ddfc0, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

attached is the zip file as per stickied thread

EDIT: Tried reinstalling graphics card drivers, did not solve BSOD

Before I get into anything too fancy, could you do me a favor and just reinstall your graphics driver here?

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 :-
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem.
Let's check the stack -

Hey I have a problem with my pc I got a few weeks ago It keeps getting the bsod and turning on and off randomly at times I use it mostly to play games and watch youtube , twitch ext.

Bsod can happen when playing a game and when on the web sometimes it wont even show the blue screen and will just restart

sometimes it can run hours without any problem

I don't know if I'm installing drives worng for my card but its getting to the point where im going to lost it
I have tested

hope you guys can help

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.

Out of 14 memory dumps there were 8 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:

Before I start, sorry if there is something wrong with my thread . So on my question, recently (after upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit) my friend's PC started to suffer from BSOD. The problem occurs only when he plays games which require more GPU and CPU power. I assume that it is a hardware issue but after all I can only assume since the BSOD was not occuring when he was using XP. So I got his dump files, any help or trace where the problem might be is appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Here is a faint overview of his system:

CPU: AMD Athlon Dual Core 2.*GHz
GPU: nVidia GeForce GTX 4*0 (it is below 460 I think)

NOTE: Please provide the following information for a more detailed response: http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

What you describe usually points to a hardware problem. While waiting for a reply, I'd suggest starting with this free video card test:


FurMark download site: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
NOTE: Set the alarm to go off at 90?C. Then watch the system from that point on. If the system doesn't display a temperature, watch it constantly and turn it off at the first sign of video problems. DO NOT leave it it unmonitored, it can DAMAGE your video card!!!
If the temperature gets above 100?C, quit the test - the video card is overheating.
- Click "Quit" to exit

Upgraded to vista ultimate yesterday and everything is working fine except when I play games one of 3 things happen:

1) The system hangs with the sound going nuts with no blue screen.
2) The system hangs but the sound keeps going for a few seconds then goes nuts with no blue screen.
3) The system hangs the sound goes nuts and I get a blue screen.

Got my first BSOD about a hour and a half ago and been trying to read it and see what I can make out of it but nothing is working as I have no clue how to use the win debug tools. But, it did give me one thing.


But I need to know what is causing it. If it is hardware related then I need to go and replace it if needed (everything is under a extended warranty) or if i need to update some drivers.

Also for some reason or another I cant post it. WinRAR is giving me this error:

Hi Eric. . .

Download the attached zip file and extract the 2 files to your desktop.

Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll, the green status bar and finally the AutoRuns screen. When Autoruns is finished (look at bottom left of AutoRuns viewer - status = scanning...) it will disappear. This batch program will take 3 - 5 minutes to run.

It will copy any mini kernel dump files, dump the app and system logs, run AutoRuns, msinfo32 and dxdiag. The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support. Simply right-click on the new folder, select SendTo, select Compressed (Zipped) Folder. The result will be a zip file in your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support.zip.

Attach the zip file to your next post and I will take a look.

Any ? - please let me know.

I've been having this problem a lot, and I've tried a lot to fix it. From updating all drivers I possibly could, to installing the latest version of my motherboard, and to reinstalling Windows 7. During playing certain games, my computer just loves to BSoD on them, and it's always the same error, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I'm getting annoyed at trying to fix this without completing anything, so I hope that the people of this forum are able to help me.
Games that are being effected:
Far Cry 3 (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)

Hi everyone I hope you can help me and if you can't thank you in advance for your time and effort.

So my computer BSOD's every now and then while playing games, really annoying but I just dealt with it.

Recently I got an ssd and decided to upgrade to windows 7 (from xp) with that. It wasn't bad at first but now it crashes within 5 minutes of starting a game (starcraft 2 and league of legends are the two games I play).

I do not believe that it is a heat issue as idle temperature is about 45 celsius and at time of crash the temperature is only at 55 or so.

I have up to date graphics drivers.

Dumps included as attachment. If you need any other information just ask and I will respond as quickly as I can.

I would really appreciate any help you could offer and again thank you for your time,

Hi everybody,

I've just purchased an EVGA 7800GS video card. I have 3 games installed on my PC : WOW, HL2 and DOOM3 and i am running Win XP PRO SP2.

My PC is working fine except when i play games : DOOM3 is freezing after 5 minutes, WOW and HL2 are issuing BSOD's.

Most of the time i get a 0x8E BSOD which is involving nv4disp.dll and sometimes i get a 0x7F_D one ...

All my drivers and BIOS are up to date : i run 91.47 NVIDIA drivers.

Does anyone have an idea on how to troubleshoot this problem ?
THANKS for answering
NOTE : attached to this post you will find the last couple of my minidump files ...

A:!!! BSOD when playing games !!!

The BSOD you are getting is from the eNvidia video card I would suggest going to Nvidia's web site and getting the drivers downloaded from there and install them, if you are still getting the BSOD after that I would suggest calling their tech support and they would more than likely have a solution for your problem.

Also you might want to ask to have this thread moved to the Games forum here at TSG just click the little triangle in the upper right corner and ask for it to be moved.

Hey all,

I would sincerely appreciate it if you could help me with the following problem:

Only 2 months ago I got a newly built pc (the information you can find in the dxdiag report). From the beginning, my pc started doing strange things while playing games. Almost every time I play a game, it crashes at random times and tells me the game doesn't respond anymore and the game exits. I tried to resolve this problem with lots of things, most important things include: updated my video card drivers, updated my motherboard drivers, clean install of windows 7 home premium, clean install of all the games. At the end I even went to the store the video card was bought and although they couldn't find a problem, I got a new video card but unfortunately after a couple of days of great gaming, the games started crashing again. BSOD only appear once in a while, but they get me worried even more. I also checked the CPU and GPU temperatures, they're both fine, never reaching above 60 degrees celsius. I did a 3D vantage Benchmark test, it got me a score of P9093, not sure what it exactly means but I think it's OK for the system I have.

So my question would be.. what could possible cause these BSOD's and crashes? It happens to all games I played till now, i.e. Assassin's Creed I and II, Tomb Raider Underworld, Need For Speed Undercover and Pro Street, Prince of Persia games.

I attached the dxdiag report.

A:BSOD while playing games.

Additional information.

I upgraded the system about a month ago with a new SSD for the primary hard drive, a new graphics card and added 8GB of RAM bringing to total RAM to 16GB. At this time I also changed the OS from windows 7 to windows 8.1 pro. I did this a completely clean install onto the new SSD, so it was not an upgrade of the existing OS install.

Everything ran fine for the first few weeks, then I started getting the BSOD. Each BSOD had a different error message, sometimes it was a memory management error, sometimes an irql_not_less_or_equal error, Security access violation, and then the most useless one "unknown". I have run the memory test a couple of times and even pulled the new RAM as a test. I have doubled checked all the drivers to ensure they are the latest ones for the MB sound /Ethernet and the video card. As well as the latest drivers for my gaming keyboard and mouse.

I did a repair of the windows 8.1 pro from the DVD, and it didn't help. Only other step I can think of is to do a complete wipe and re-install.

I am at a real loss as to what to try next.

Your graphics driver is out dated significantly.
Please update it, there's a nice tutorial on how to update AMD drivers on their website.
Here's a link.

It may simply be a case that Empires2 is causing memory corruption. That having been said, if you run these to tests it can test your ram and find the misbehaving driver.
* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a 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 or 6 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.

Greetings, I have a problem with my pc. Generally I can handle most of the problems that I encounter, but this one is starting to get to me. I BSOD while playing games, at first I thought it was just World of Warcraft since it's the game I play most. But lately it's starting to happen during others. I updated my Radeon HD 6850 to the newest drivers thinking that it would fix it, but it didn't. Sometimes I can play for hours and hours and not have a single problem, and other times it's crashing after a few minutes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: I would also like to say that my pc kind of stutters right before the BSOD.

I just had another crash, I added the second set of crash reports. Thanks.

This weekend I had several BSODs while playing games. 2 times the system simply crashed black screen and restarted, 1 time I received a BSOD MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error, and 2 times I received a BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN error and a restart. The MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and one black screen crash occurred while playing Forged Alliance Supreme Commander, then the IRQL errors and a black screen crash occurred while playing Steam version of Age of Empires II. First time request, let me know if I can help more.

Hi Axol,

Welcome to the 10forums.

Please uninstall everything of AMD using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from AMD. Be sure to ONLY install the drivers using custom/advanced options.

Help, I'm getting the BSOD of, "A Clock Interrupt has been received on a secondary processor ... " many times while playing several games in which I have sufficient system requirements to play including Team Fortress 2, Minecraft and Europa Universalis 4. I Upgraded my graphics thinking that would help but it didn't. I have an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 @3.40 GHz processor, a 16.0 GB ram and a NVIDIA GeForce ATX 650 for a graphics card.

I'm thinking that it could be something with the PSU but I'm unsure.

A few things to eliminate;
Test for thermals and stability:
Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

It is not mandatory to run both tests simultaneously, although possible as long as the temperatures are under constant monitoring.
