BSOD playing Kings Bounty, random errors and hang ups

Q: BSOD playing Kings Bounty, random errors and hang ups

Hi all,

Having this problem for several months, suspected HDD first but bought new M500 and seems there's something else is responsible for this "fun" I'm having with the PC.

Basically, the nature seems to be the same all the time - when I playing video games (currently it is Kings Bounty, used to be the problem with Max Payne 2012 even during the installation), also used to play Flash games and used to watch video online, it was crushing.
Most common BSOD problem was "page fault in non-paged area" and "IRQL is not less or equal". Sometimes it gives me just a black screen and nothing else at all so I have to go "hard reboot". Sometimes, it hangs with the destroyed, "torn in pieces" video and annoying repetitive sound like ding-ding-ding, so I need to reboot it again, sometimes it goes into BSOD with some errors and exceptions.

I have tried numerous times different Windows 7 versions, both x86 and x64 architecture, and tried XP. Same issues.

I have noticed although, that when the W7 has a clean installation and almost no updates installed, it gives me less headache. Recently I have stopped installing the Catalyst suite for the graphics and thought the problem was just with that but after going through all Windows updates it started again.

I think that there is something with the video, but cannot get to the bottom of it.

Please help as this is becoming now a paranoia for me and I cannot sleep properly.


Preferred Solution: BSOD playing Kings Bounty, random errors and hang ups

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, every time I play Microsoft Flight Simulator X about 10-minutes into the game it blue screens each BSOD is different (most times). This only happens when I play FSX not when browsing or doing other tasks.

AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.21Ghz
ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series
DDR2 8GB Ram
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The errors are random like:

And some others which I forgot this one is the most common.

I have attached the 'minidump' logs below and my MSINFO32.

If you need/want any other information just ask.

Thank you!

Hi Guys,

I recently built a new PC and I've been having a few issues. I think it's the RAM, but I'm not sure. The first time I booted it up, it only had the ram, HDD, DVD Rom and Motherboard hooked up, but as soon as I got into the Windows 7 Installer I got the dreaded blue screen of death.

I have checked the ram is compatible with the motherboard and even got professional advice, but I'm still constantly getting the blue screen errors.

I've attached the dump files for someone to review. Any help will be appreciated!

Many thanks,

The motherboard is a Gigabyte Z68P-DS3
Ram:Gskill Sniper 8gb Kit 4GBx2
Core i5 2400
Gigabyte ATI Radeon 6450 HD Graphics (Added recently)
500gb Seagate Barracuda Sata3 HDD
Samsung 22x DVD RW

A:BSOD, Random with different errors and usually when playing MW3

You can try these battery of tests to try to ascertain what hardware it is. However, be aware that if it's the CPU, PSU or Motherboard, all these tests can show up no error or more than one can show up with errors. The tests are as followed:

RAM: Memtest86+ - 7+ passes
CPU: Prime95 - Torture Test; Large FFTs; overnight (9+ hours)
GPU: MemtestG80/CL - Run twice (if any of the tests work on your GPU; ATI cards will need to install the ATI APP SDK as it requires OpenCL)
Drives: Seatools - All basic tests aside from the Fix all or the advanced ones.

All of these (excluding MemtestG80/CL) are included in the UBCD if you prefer a Live CD environment (which is the best environment to test hardware on). Note that Prime95 currently does not work on the UBCD. Also, please provide us temps/voltages using HWInfo with Sensors only option checked. Log two 30-minute instances: one for idle, and one for high load.

I have a legit, validated copy of Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate and I have gotten fed up with all the different stop errors, maybe once or twice a week. It's really weird. I don't get them everyday.

Usually I get them when playing a game. I've tried to update all my graphics drivers, but I've seen on other posts that I may need to update system files or other drivers?

The BSOD's include the following:


I just don't know how to troubleshoot all the different errors. I have an active antivirus installed as well.

My RAM is CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800).

Thanks all.

I've had issues with my Samsung RC512-S02 laptop for a few months now. It began after a NVIDIA update for their latest driver for my chip (GeForce GTG525M) in late December of 2012. Occasionally it would BSOD while playing Borderlands, but that eventually moved onto League of Legends. It got progressively worse and a few days ago I identified the cause of the problem through various sources (my friend that is a comp-sci major, WhoCrashed, and the internet) as the NVIDIA update, which I believed it to be. To fix that I completely uninstalled all NVIDIA files and installed a previous version of the driver, but my computer still BSOD's whenever I try to play any game. I put off fixing it to do schoolwork, but while just having YouTube on Google Chrome open and Microsoft Word it BSOD'd just now. The original errors caused by the NVIDIA driver were 0xC4 errors, and out of the errors that I experienced after fixing that most of them have still been 0xC4 errors, however two of them were 0x9F and 0x116 errors, and they have all been either caused by ntoskrnl.exe or by an unknown driver. Thank you very much for any help that you provide and for any time you take to help me.

A:BSOD while playing any game(recently seemingly random) several errors

Hi superbruce56 and welcome to the forums,

Firstly please update your system to Win 7 Service Pack 1, this will help with system stability.
Also ensure you have all Windows updates installed.


Please can you add your systems specs to your profile? Here's how:


Uninstall AVG as it is well known for BSOD, you can re-install later if found not the cause.
Please use Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software and has a small footprint. Found here:

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

Hey guys, awesome forum. So I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my custom built machine. It has been working flawlessly on Vista x64 for quite some time now and the only issue I had on that was not coming out of sleep about 10% of the time.

Win 7 randomly hangs with no indication of why. It could happen while installing a driver or update, looking at system information, or simply checking email in IE8.

I am currently running it in Safe Mode because I rarely can go 5 minutes without a hang / manual reboot. So far in Safe Mode it is working fine, as far as I can tell.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, this is really frustrating, as you can imagine.


A:Random hang, no bsod, no error

The fact that it seems fine (as it's never happened - not even once?) in safe mode is A Good Thing, because it suggests that the causes are software-based. Something that loads in normal mode but not safe mode is presumably the culprit.

One way to start troubleshooting is with the MSCONFIG utility. Start off by choosing the "diagnostic" startup mode and rebooting. If that works, as in there are no hangs, go to "selective" startup and disable/enable the various optional components until you zero-in on the culprit.

If "diagnostic" mode doesn't stop the hangs from occurring in normal mode, uninstall your anti-virus and any 3rd-party firewalls (disabling them is not enough). Test what happens when running without them.

Hi evryone!

I'm experiencing random slow down then lead to system hang up then BSOD. Sometime when I wait 3-4 mins, it doesn't lead to BSOD and I'm able to continue my work.

I'm using windows 7 x64 build 7600, when I first installed it worked fine. I think I was able to run it for 1-2 weeks and for some reason I had to re-install it now i'm getting a random slow down.

I clean installed it serveral times and download some windows update but still the same.

Here are the errors I got from event manager during the period slow down(i have no idea if the errors are related to one another or not):

Hi there I have been having some computer issues. Every so often my computer will just hang and be unresponsive, the only way to fix is to switch off the pc by holding the power button for 5 seconds.

these crashes happen seemingly at random, however they present themself the same way, the system will just become 100% unresponsive. Once or twice the system has still let me move my mouse around but I cant interact with anything, also my keyboard accepts no input at this point so I can't ctrl shift x or anything like that.

After turning off and on my computer the BIOS screen will take ages to pass and give me the option to restart in safemode's or normally. Safemode does not work, if I start up normally the windows logo will appear but sort of stop half way round. It then either continues (after a few mins) and windows loads up fine or stops and I have to switch off my computer. If this is straight after a crash the windows logo will just get halfway, then move a tiny bit more then nothing.

Then windows startup repair becomes an option and I can wait for that to load and do its stuff only option it can come up with is a system restore. I let it do that then it restarts. This restart will be unsuccessful (gets to windows logo and hangs) so I turn it off and on and it goes into startup repair again. After going through this again it tells me that it was unable to fix my computer automatically. at which point a restart will let it get to the windows logo and continue to lo... Read more

A:Random Hard Hang Crash (no BSOD)

The 41 bugcheck code is pretty generic -- it simply means the computer shut down unexpectedly. If there is a minidump file (C:\Windows|Minidump), you might want to examine it to see if there are any other error messages that might point to something more concrete. You can use Blue Screen Viewer or Debugging Tools for Windows to do that, then post the log here.
The most recent Event Viewer logs from the last time the computer hung up would also be useful.
I would recommend uninstalling the registry cleaner. They have a history of causing more problems than they solve.

Hello all,

My computer keeps randomly crashing. 70% of the time, its a BSOD, and the rest of time the screen just goes blank and restarts or screen freezes. I have also been having start up problems recently.

After the HP splash screen, i see a message telling me that Windows failed to start because a recent software or hardware change/malicious software had damaged some software. It said that a driver signature was damaged, and asked me to go to the Advanced Startup menu. When it reboots, i press f8, but get the same message. I have to try many times until i reach the advanced startup screen. Startup Repair doesn't work because when i run it, it says that the file was damaged. Please help, i desperately need my computer working!

If you need me to be more specific, please say so.

I'm dealing with this issue almost a month now and I still didn't figure out how to get rid of it .. It's just so annoying when you are playing for example WoW and you are about to win and it freezes and you have restart it and lose every progress you have made ... It started appearing more frequently when I cleaned my CPU from dust and applied a new thermal paste ... After that my CPU is running better performance and lower temperature then before but the BSOD's are appearing more frequently then before ... I updated almost every driver as possible in my PC and I hardly doubt that a virus is in my PC when I just month ago formated my HDD ... It happens really random when I play almost every game and my Hardware is cool and in a good shape so hardware shoudn't be the problem ... I also checked if the Voltage of my Processor is good and it is ... I really don't know what should I do And I don't even know if it's worth reinstalling and format my HDD because I don't want to lose my files when I don't havy any chance to back up them

Windows 7 x64, full-retail installed ~10 months ago (clean install, not upgrade). Has run fine until 2-3 weeks ago when random BSOD's began. BSOD sometimes occur several in a row within minutes, sometimes go days in between. They occur with light CPU usage - including just surfing the web or using outlook email.

Pardon me for not following protocol of including my dump files. Although my blue screen suggests one is being created, the minidump folder is empty (hidden files are set to visible). The folder has a lock icon on it - is that normal? I can save a new .txt file into the folder just like any other folder.

I tried the driver verifier tool following the instructions posted here. Checking everything except microsoft devices (including unknowns, and a few labeled Windows(r)). This caused start-up routine to hang at the glowing, four-colored window "windows is starting" screen. Had to disable verifier in safe mode.

No hardware changes before these BSOD's began. I note a number of windows updates have been made in this time span, including MS Office 2010 SP1, and Net framework 4, which seem closest in time to when problem began. Also, running zonealarm security suite (paid version) with somewhat earlier upgrade to version 10 a couple of weeks before BSOD's began.

So, without a .dmp file to analyze, or ability to run verifier.... what should I try next? Would running the dump tool posted on this site still be useful for you experts without the... Read more

Hello, welcome to SevenForums!

I have taken a look at your provided dump files. There are tons of memory management and memory corruption errors. Before we continue, if any of your hardware is overclocked, PLEASE reset your clocks to stock for diagnostic purposes.

First off, before we continue onto memory.... in your drivers list I noticed you have sptd.sys listed, which is the driver for Daemon Tools. Please uninstall Daemon Tools from your system as it's known to cause many issues in the Windows 7 environment. Once you've done so, restart and then run DuplexSecure's sptd uninstaller to fully remove sptd.sys from your system. After you've done so, restart again.

Next, tons and tons of memory management and memory corruption errors as I've said earlier. Please read the following thread to download and install Memtest to test your memory for any bad sticks.

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,

Upgraded the parts to my computer around the 20th of December, and been having issues since, i have tried diagnosing the problem myself, re-installed my OS about 10 times now with different installation methods.

I am having so many issues it would be crazy trying to list them all, i will upload the files that the tool created and if you need any further information i will do my best to answer.

I upgraded my RAM, Mobo and CPU in the upgrade.

It's been over three months and I am still struggling with multiple BSOD.

I wish I were more able to fix this but, I am not.

Spent over 2400$ on a new system and it's not gone long without BSOD or often just locking up requiring a restart.

Pwnsesh mate don't quite fully understand what you mean by updating your driver?? There are a few in a system so which one ??

Also what are you doing with the BIOS?? It is something best left well alone unless you know what you are doing. Before you do anything I would back up the registry and any data you need.

A:Random BSOD's and even more random stop errors

When did you buy this TriGem computer, and have you contacted them.
I worry about any computer built by TriGem as they are closely affiliated with the often failing eMachines models... and often failing hard drive failures.
Their motherboards go bad as they age and curl...
What you describe is typical of the motherboard problems.
In many cases, Tri-Gem makes the motherboards designed by Intel and others, in their own factory under license to the original manufacturer.
Of these "licensed" boards, we have found failure rates as high as 65%.
Document all contact efforts.
I would immediately keep documentation on all contacts, and with the seller.

I bought this toshiba qosmio x775-q7170 laptop in march, 12th, Windows 7 home premium 64 bit (OEM)
Since last few days of april, it begun to show some errors while i was gaming, first it was justcause 2 before I first formatted, than was Walking Dead and the last game I tried was Deus Ex. still trying...(note: i played a few other games before any sign of error)
The error consisted of distorted image of the locked screen in game like the image attached, and some strange sound coming from the speakers
I usually play about 10 to 20 minutes before each problem.

Than, I get to force shut down or some times i get a BSOD, with diferent codes, each time. It comes usually directly from the game or when I'm trying to initialize my system again after I forced shut down from an error. If i wait a little the system initialize normally without showing any kind of error than the Windows notice...

Let me know of any doubt or information needed of solving this problem
Thanks in advance

A:BSOD's while playing, various errors

The most recent crash was Related to iaStor.sys Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver - ia32.. i would re-install newest and if you continue to crash we can look more closely.

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.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference

Hi, I just built my new computer on Saturday. The first day everything seemed fine and I had no issues. The following night I got my first BSoD and have been getting them virtually every time I play WoW. I have tried trouble shooting myself. Here is what I have done:

1. Ran memtest86: 8 tests/no errors
2. Ran FurMark burn-in: Ran for over an hour with GPU at 99%, temps stayed at 49-54 C. No crashes.
3. Ran AoD stability test for 1 hour: No errors.
4. Ran Windows Memtest: No errors after 2 tests.
5. Used DriverFusion in safe mode to remove graphic drivers, updated drivers from Gigabyte's website: Drivers specific to my card model.
6. Googled Nirsoft BlueScreenView bug checks: Found nothing relevant.

I come to you as I am at my wits end. From all my tests it seems pretty clear to me that my hardware is working fine. Windows is telling me all my drivers are up to date. I am not having problems browsing or watching videos, and when I am in WoW everything seems to be running fantastically until the BSoD pops up.

I assume all relevant information that anyone needs will be found in this post and my attachment. I will be monitoring this thread closely. Any help would be appreciated.

This has been happening for several months, and I've been slowly trying to work on it.

It first started when I installed an SSD as my main drive. The crashes would happen several times a day and sometimes back to back. Sadly I don't have the dumps from those. I took the SSD back out, and went back to my old setup. The blue screens still happened, but far less often sometimes not for a week or more. I believe I have minidumps from the last 17 crashes.

I'm making this thread because since the launch of GW2 (yesterday) I have received 6 crashes.

If any other information is needed just let me know.

A:BSOD. 8 different errors. More common playing GW2.

The report points toward memory.Take this test.
Run for 8 passes.
Then test each stick in a good slot for 6 passes.
If you have dual channel, the results may be incorrect, if shows pass.

I need urgent help from anyone that can do so. I am not sure when this problem started to occur (approximately 1 month ago). Whenever I play some games that require more or so regular or intensive resources, my computer crashes into a BSOD and I am forced to restart my computer. This has happened plenty of times that I lost count.

Now it's starting to get really annoying. I have read the following thread:
Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

However, after following what is posted, I noticed that the dump files are quite old, from 2013 if I am not mistaken. I will attach the zip below and let you see by yourselves, I could be wrong though.

If you need any other information, please let me know as I will give it you for sure since I am really tired of this. A friend of mine has told that this is a RAM issue.

Note: I need to mention that this sort of issue has happened to me before when I a friend of mine built the computer for me. But later, after telling him about it, he took it and fixed it. He said that it was something related to the RAM that he forgot to do when building it. After that, everything ran normally until 1 month ago when the BSODs started to visit me again. Before 1 month ago, my computer was awesome as it ran for 25 days constantly without any crashes of any sort.

Windows Update always gives me this error: 800703F1
If I try to repair windows 8.1 with my disc it gives me another error which is " We couldn't install windows "
This happens when I play GTA V, or any other game which needs a lot of "power" to run.

So i built a computer back in September and it's been blue screening ever since, I thought nothing of it at first because it happened rarely, but now it's been happening often. It happens mainly when i play apb: reloaded, but it's also happened with other games, just not as much. Usually when it blue screens, its random, it doesn't happen when the game gets laggy, it just happens. If someone could help that'd be awesome.

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

Hi - I apologize if I have done this wrongly, but I have posted my details here:
following one set of instructions I saw on the forum, but having read some other instructions, perhaps I should have posted here first?

Please be gentle as I thought I was doing the right thing when I posted this three days ago.

My Windows XP system has hit problems with google links redirecting, random music playing, script errors for unfamiliar websites appearing when no browser window is open.

I have run Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware from safe mode which has got rid of the fake spyware ads appearing, but the above symptoms are left in place.

The other problem is that my desktop is completely blank - and mouse right-clicks have no effect there. The usual files and shortcuts are there in Windows Explorer but do not appear on the desktop.

My log details from following the log advice on the forum is in the link above.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Guys,

I am by no means a computer expert so please bear with me here. I recently purchased all the necessary parts for my new computer and had it built by a friend who has done various builds for me in the past. I have been getting frequent BSODs. At first I thought it was related entirely to Skyrim, but I have also had a BSOD while burning a DVD and at idle. My system specs are as follows:

Intel i5 2500k
Asus P8Z68-V
Asus Gtx 570
8gb Corsair Vegeance LP 1600mhz 2x4
Corsair Series 3 90GB SSD
Thermaltake TR2 1200Watt PS
Windows 7 Ultimate 64x

It is a retail version of Windows and everything is brand new.

I have done the following:

Malware test using Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and have found nothing.
Uniblue DriverScanner is showing all drivers up to date.
I ran Prime95 and had no issues (temps stayed normal)
I ran FurMarks and had no issues (again normal temps)
I ran MemTest and the RAM passed without issue.
I used HD Tune on the SSD and there also did not appear to be any problems.
I have disabled Avira AV and still have the BSOD
I updated the firmware on my SSD
I updated by bios
I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled by GFX drivers.

Nothing appears to be working and I would really like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. Fortunately, since I just bought the parts at a local computer store I can return them for a direct swap if one of the parts is the issue.

I have attached the memory dumps. Hopefully a .RAR is okay.

Actually don't worry about it guys. I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and replace my motherboard, CPU and GPU. I have found many posts on the internet from people with the same motherboard and CPU having the same exact problems all unsolved. I think the GPU maybe has issues now because what all the crashes have done to the computer stress wise. I have often seen after a crash the screen saying over temperature error. So I have effectively cooked my computer I guess.

The errors include the following:


and just saw this one for the first time recently:


I attached the SF diagnostic tool .zip file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was playing Allods Online a few days ago when the BSOD started, since then it pops whenever I play any games both online and offline after 4-15 minutes. I downloaded and ran the FurMark temperature test with no problems. Any info on resolving will help. Here's the .zip I can do everything else on laptop for days with no issues, just gaming crashes it.

I've had this computer for about 6 months now, and for the first few months, it was absolutely no problem. Then when I played League of Legends, it started to have blue screens. It also happens when I play other steam games like Garry's mod, Border lands 2, etc. I'm sorry I'm kind of a novice with computers so If I miss any information please let me know! Here is the log. Thanks!

A:BSOD playing most games, multiple errors

Hi Zentix,

Please run the DM Log Collector again, many files are missing.
Please check in %systemroot%\minidump for any file present of a recent date, there is a possibility the files present need to be uploaded manually if they are not present in the next zip of the DM Log Collector.

You can upload the dumps manually by selecting them, right click > 'send to' > compressed (zipped) folder and upload the zip file created.

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

Been having some BSOD issues for the past few weeks. So far I have tried removing some hardware to see if the problem would be fixed (A PCI USB card, and a unused TV Tuner Card), cleaned out some dust, ensured everything had a solid connection, updated a few drivers (Video Card and Razer mouse) but can't seem to determine what is causing the issues. Whocrashed doesn't seem to give me any useful info, other then saying it thinks its a driver issue. Do these crash logs indicated anything?

Also, here is some of the stuff from Whocrashed:
