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

- 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.

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

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.

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

A:BSOD while playing a variety of games, BSOD references DPC

Before I get into anything too fancy, could you do me a favor and just reinstall your graphics driver here?
It's the faulting driver in 90% of these dumps.

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.

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.

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

After completing that 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 a... Read more

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 -

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.

Hi All,

Over the past few days I have been getting BSOD whenever playing games on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit rig.

I have not added any new hardware since this has started and the only new software added have been games.

When it first started I was running faily old nvidia drivers (191.xxx) for my EVGA GTX 260 so I updated to the most recent (196.21) but this hasn't helped. I tried a complete uninstall of the drivers and then a fresh install but am still getting the BSOD.

My CPU core temps are fine (approx 55 degrees celcius) and my GPU temp is at around 75 degrees celcius - both during gameplay. I am not overclocking any of my hardware - it's all running at stock.

I have run memtest and Linx and found no issues.

As can be seen from the attached crash list, the culprit drivers are nvlddmkm.sys, ntoskrnl.exe and dxgkrnl.sys (this latter one has happended once and occured when I exited a game).

The BSOD are quite random - I can play for 45 minutes before one occurs - yet when I try again it might only take 10 minutes. A few nights ago I played for a few hours and didn't receive any BSOD. I have received BSOD on two separate games so it's obviously not a game issue.

I've attached the minidumps along with a crash list generated by BlueScreenView.

Many thanks.

I recently downgraded drivers to 295.73 to solve the pink screen issue with my GTX 550ti, and my games began randomly closing with no error. It is only steam games that are graphics intensive. The main two I play are Skyrim and Far Cry 2. When I played Medieval II it never crashed on me. I also had no errors with a non steam game, Civilization 4. All games are played on max settings.

I grew tired of the constant closings with no error, so I just went back to the new 296.10 drivers. I began playing Skyrim again and within 5 minutes I get a BSOD.

Checkup hi and welcome to Seven Forums

You have two significant problems.
1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 (and easrlier) version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

2-Your video driver. Re-install newest using this method
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hi,

The attached DMP file is of the VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116) bug check.
This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed. So, let me now explain what VIDEO_TDR_ERROR means. First off, TDR is an acronym for 'Timeout Detection and Recovery'. Timeout Detection and Recovery was introduced in Vista and carried over to Windows 7. Rather than putting exactly what Timeout Detection and Recovery does exactly, I'll just directly quote the MSDN article!
Timeout detection: The GPU scheduler, which is part of the DirectX graphics kernel subsystem (Dxgkrnl.sys), detects that the GPU is taking more than the permitted amount of time to execute a particular task. The GPU scheduler then tries to preempt this particular task. The preempt operation has a "wait" timeout, which is the actual TDR timeout. This step is thus the timeout detection phase of the process. The default timeout period in Windows Vista and later operating systems is 2 seconds. If the GPU cannot complete or preempt the current task within the TDR timeout period, the operating system diagnoses that the GPU is frozen.
To prevent timeout detection from occurring, hardware vendors should ensure that graphics operations (that is, DMA buffer completion) take no more than 2 seconds in end-user scenarios such as productivity and game play. Preparation for recovery: The operating system's GPU scheduler calls the display miniport driver's DxgkDdiResetFromTimeo... Read more

Alright So I've posted on here before trying to get help for a BSOD problem, but had no luck. I'm here again to see if somebody knows a solution at this point. Here is what I know so far, my game crashes after 10-15 mins. of gameplay depending on the game. The BSOD would change from Memory_Management to System_Service_Exception and maybe even Pool Corruption. I believe the problem started after I updated to the newest video drivers and my games run fine without my graphics card installed(Ofcourse at a significantly lower setting). Memtest found no errors with the RAM. Also when I know my game is about to crash into a BSOD, if i tab out real wuick I could see it say that nvidia kernel driver stopped and recovered following up with a bsod almost instantly. Been looking on the web for answers for weeks and haven't found any. I've tried changing my drivers to an older version with no success. I'm stuck and I need some answers.

My specs are...
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1075T Processor
Memory:8GB Kit (4GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 memory module

A:BSOD while playing games.

The likely culprits are your graphics card or your PSU. What PSU are you using?

Obviously, there are other possible reasons for the crashes, but the two mentioned should be checked first.

As to the crashes, the latest was a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, and the previous was a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. The MEMORY_MANAGEMENT crash yielded little useful information. SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION typically means a graphics card problem, but yours was indicating a network issue. The network relation could be a false positive, or it could be related to your Atheros driver that needs to be updated. I see a couple drivers that should be updated:
Code:
ASACPI fffff880`04112000 fffff880`0411a000 Sun Mar 27 20:30:36 2005 (42476c4c) 00003c77 ASACPI.sys
L1C62x64 fffff880`11e46000 fffff880`11e58000 Tue Mar 31 23:09:17 2009 (49d2f6fd) 0001660a L1C62x64.sys
For ASACPI.sys: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M4A78LT-M LE -> Download -> Windows 7 64bit -> Utilities -> ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit

For L1C62x64.sys: ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M4A78LT-M LE -> Download -> Windows 7 64bit -> LAN -> Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Ethernet Controller V1.0.0.14 for Windows 7 32bit/7 64bit

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.

The bugchecks are all 0x101, unfortunately this bug check code doesn't contain enough
information in the minidump file be analyzed fully.

Please upload the Kernel dump file using Dropbox or Skydrive, the file is located in the Windows directory
and is usually a few hundred Megabytes in size.

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).


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

What is the make, model and age of your PSU?

Hi,

I am facing problem with BSOD.

Its just if i play a game in 3-4 minutes game freezes and crashes my system to safe start. Same does not happen on 1080p movies on VLC Player.

I already had updated nvidia drivers. Then felt may be new drivers are unstable so also went to safe mode installed some really old stable driver. However problem remained the same.

I also did memtest. i am sorry i ran out of patience but post 2 hrs also it showed new error. also there are no artifacts as such on the screen.

My System :

Intel Core I7 920
Gigabyte X 58 USB3
Gskill F3-12800CL7T-6GB
GTX 580 Twin Frozr II
Xonar Essence ST
Corsair HX 850
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

If i have not filled in info as per desired format, do let me know if something i need to add. Sorry n Thank you for the same.

Hello, if this its in the wrong section I apologize, however I do not believe this to be a game specific issue. When playing a select few games (most notably Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 on multiplayer, Half Life 2 and a couple others) I will be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours into the game and I get a BSOD with no text. I restart and everything is fine, until I play another game. Counterstrike Source works just fine, as does Battlefield 2 and 2142 on single player, Combat Arms, World of Warcraft, and F.E.A.R. I cleaned out the inside of my case for dust and stuff with canned air, and I swapped my two 512MB RAM chips because it seemed like a RAM error to me (heavy resource games are the only ones doing it) and instead of 1024MB of ram my computer showed only 512MB of ram. Ok so my RAM was bad. i went to Fry,s and bought a two pack of 1GB sticks of DDR3200 RAM and a ThermalTake Northbridge chipset cooler (the fan on the stock cooler was almost gone I figured it might be another problem). Installed both and it still does it. Next I thought it might be old or bad drivers, so I found all the updated drivers (my ATI card, motherboard chipset and sound card), still doing it. I looked in the BIOS and all the temperatures and voltages were just fine (temperatures were 47C for CPU and 49C for chipset). I looked in the event viewer and here are the errors I get:Event Type: ErrorEvent Source: Service Control ManagerEvent Category: NoneEvent ID: 7023Date: 3/... Read more

Hello. As the title says i got a problem with BSOD 124 ever since i have built it back in December! What i did over this period is that i ran all kind of tests that led me to absolutely nothing. I have ran prime95 for 24 hours no BSOD there. I have ran furmark 36 hours! Nothing there. I have run heavenengine over a gazillion times no BSOD there. I have run memtest86 for each slot of ram in every combination possible and no problems there. BUT Everytime i play games my PC always gets BSOD 124. This only happens in games!
I have run sfc /scannow and found some problems there. It wont repair it self and it redirected me to csc.log. I have used 0x124 troubleshooting 1 to 8 and i detected no problems there. I will leave 9 until later windows 7 key is not working anymore. (windows 10 comes out)
What i think is wrong is my gpu or the drivers of it because since i went through safe mod i have seen many BSOD 124 turn into BSOD 117 i dont know why that happened.
Here are my DMP files.

A:BSOD 124 While Playing games!

Hey and welcome to SevenForums!

124 is a hardware related issue. You made the most of our tests so that's good. I need you to run IntelBurnTest.
