BSOD During Streaming / Recording With OBS [Dark Souls 3]

Q: BSOD During Streaming / Recording With OBS [Dark Souls 3]

Pretty self explanatory- my specs are on my profile and I'm including the zip file as per usual BSOD post.

My computer runs the game fine and can even handle media on my second monitor during gaming. I've rarely had issues streaming / recording / watching stuff and gaming simultaneously - I've been having all kinds of issues as of late and while I can run the game without issues at all - as soon as OBS comes into the picture I get BSOD'd.

The reason I'm making this post rather than accepting the limitation of a weaker graphics card (outside of the BSOD) is that on day one I was able to stream and record simultaneously for hours on end - and even earlier points throughout the week I've had no problems.

However lately while toning everything down and running less background stuff I still crash much harder than I should. Earlier I tried to record 5 minutes of content and my system crashed hard, but hours prior I'd recorded a solid 2 hours without break.

I appreciate any input and will give any info that I missed - thanks for taking the time guys.

Preferred Solution: BSOD During Streaming / Recording With OBS [Dark Souls 3]

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.)



I get a BSOD when I play Dark Souls II for some time. The crash seems to happen most often when I am summoned while another summon is present (no idea if this is relevant or not).

This does not occur with any other games. Occasionally, the screen might go black for ~2 sec in some other games, but this is the only game to crash

I sent my GPU in for an RMA and they said that they have not found a problem with it. I thought this would be the case since crashes only occur with one game and I have no artifacts on a stress test, but I wanted to be sure. I've run memtest86+ and it reported no problems. I've reverted my drivers back, as the new drivers seem to lag the card very badly for some reason. However, the drivers made no difference on the game crashing. The temps are stable ~45, so no overheating

I've installed drivers for the on-board AMD 760G gpu right now, since I don't have my dedicated yet, but its drivers were not installed at the time (in fact, it was disabled through BIOS)

PSU: 450W PSU included with case (TT-450)
Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3
CPU: AMD FX 6300
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Here is a little background on my problem.. About two weeks ago I installed the MotionJoy drivers so I could use my PS3 controller for the game Dark Souls, but I kept getting BSOD randomly while playing. I found out that the MotionJoy driver is known for causing BSOD on some peoples PCs. I uninstalled the driver and the MotionJoy program.
I then bought an official Xbox 360 controller but my computer continued to BSOD when playing Dark Souls. I tested multiple games using the 360 controller and the only game that causes the BSOD is Dark Souls.

In the last few days I have reformatted my hard drive and re-installed windows 7 Home premium 64bit and only Dark Souls continues to cause BSOD.

This is a Windows 7 system. You may receive more expert help by posting at Windows 7 Help Forums

There are no memory dumps in the uploaded reports.

Please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates. It may take several trips there to get them all.

C: drive (your SSD) has less than ?% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty). I have seen BSOD's on systems with much more free space than this. I consider it critical for you to free up the space on your SSD!!!

You have 3 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Greetings, forum people.

Hopefully, someone can help me with this issue and hopefully I'm doing this right.
I've been experiencing Blue Screens ever since I've started playing Dark Souls. They only happen with this game and only when certain particle effects appear (although somewhat randomly; one effect may cause the BSoD once and then not again the next time it happens).
I can sometimes play the game for 3-4 hours with not even a lag, other times I play for five minutes and it explodes on me.

What happens exactly is that the game freezes for a split-second, then the last bit of sound played starts looping (kind of a stuttering noise) and I get vertical stripes on my screen. Following that, Windows reboots.

Before I take any drastic measures (like exchanging hardware), maybe someone can pinpoint the actual problem for me.
I'm quite computer illiterate so I might be missing something obvious, but I can follow basic instructions.

Every time I play Dark Souls 2 on steam within 20mins I get BSOD. I used to use motionjoy and stopped cause I thought that was the problem and stated using x360ce.7z but I still crash. I updated to the newest Nvidia driver for my card and that's when the blue screens started so I went to an older one but still doesn't matter. I've ran memtest on all my mobo slots and ram for 8 passes and they all came up with 0 errors.
I'm out of ideas on what I can do to play this game without crashing every 20minutes.

Would really appreciate some suggestions.

I was playing Dark Souls with a 360 controller and I BSODed all of a sudden. I didn't think much of it because these things happen but then I couldn't boot to windows anymore. It would get so far as the screen that asks me to start windows normally or start startup repair. It would give me no option for starting windows in safe mode.

After messing around with the startup repair I eventually reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I thought that would be the end of it and began reinstalling everything but I BSODed again and am getting strange errors with windows failing to install updates and not booting once.

Now I can start it up and login but I'll BSOD randomly and it'll restart the machine.

Thanks in advance.

Hello ChrisP2001 and welcome to Sevenforums.
Is your Xbox Controller connected to your PC?In that case, go to BIOS (press rapidly Delete, Tab, F10, F5 or other), and make sure that the boot priority is settled. The disk with Windows on, should be on top.

What's your temperatures just before a crash?

BSOD Analyse

Combining your crash dumps and the general view of BSODs culprits, I'd suggest you to have a look at your memory, the sticks. Through decades people have been using the bootable tool called Memtest86+ and it's basically very unique in these manners.
Be sure to check your warranty rules and regulations before opening your case.* Memtest86+ is USB-ready, and can be booted directly from it. Download the flashdrive wizard.
* To ensure that either your sticks OR your motherboard slots are broken, it's necessary to do the below procedure-
* Pull out all sticks except ONE, scan it.
* If no errors, pull the scanned stick into another slot.
* Proceed like this until you've scanned all sticks individually, and all the slots.Best Regards,

Hello all.
I've been getting these BSOD only when playing the new Dark Souls 3. I think the problem in my Windows HDD, since it's so old and CrystalDiskInfo give some bad info about it(Although chkdsk doesn't detect anything bad). Also one of the parameters say it's
HDD failure to read or whatever. The video driver is up to date and the Windows Install is pretty fresh(Already tried formatting and the problem persists).

I need someone with more BSOD knowledge to tell me with more certainty what may be causing this.
The minidumps are here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=8A24A5C8DA1551DD!241&authkey=!AA9sOexkSBTPl5o&ithint=file%2c7z (The oldest one had driver verifier activated).

I've been playing Dark Souls 3 since launch (11) and getting BSODs after a while of gameplay.

When the game came out I had the latest nvidia driver but was getting bad performance, so I downgraded the driver to a "magical version" that supposedly increased performance in older cards. During the installation of the older driver I got a blue screen error(I don't remember which error because this was the first time it happened). Since I did not get any better results, I went back to the latest version.

After this, I was getting constant blue screens after around 30 minutes of game, always the same error, stating "ntfs.sys".

Then I tried some other video driver versions but nothing got rid of the problem. Finally yesterday I formatted my C: drive and reinstalled windows(Dark Souls 3 is in the D: drive) with the latest graphics driver and had o problems. Today I got another BSOD, same error, but this time no ntfs.sys showed on the screen. My only idea is that the HDD is gone bad and needs replacing.

Before I reinstalled windows i did the chkdsk /r and nothing bad came up, however HDSentinel days the C Drive had 60% health(around 15 bad sectors and some read errors I think).

Have a ****ing weekend, here hoping I can figure this shit out.

I already posted this on the Dark Souls subreddit, but I figured this might be a better place to post it given the technical nature of my question.

So, a while ago, I switched to windows 10, and I remember that when I had first done it I had some issues with running DS that I was eventually able to iron out. However, for complex reasons I'm not going to get into here, I had to reinstall the OS, and I'm having trouble with getting the program up and running.

So, when I click "play" from the steam menu, the message pops up saying that it's installing microsoft directx redist package, but then it just disappears and the program doesn't launch. If I go to the file in the steamapps and launch it there, I get a message saying that the program can't start because d3dx9_43.dll is missing.

I remember when I had had these issues before, there was just some directx thing I had to install manually somewhere, and from then on, it would work, but I can't find where to get it. I keep seeing people linking to some "DirectX end-user runtime web installer" but whenever I click that, it takes me to the media creation tool for windows 10, which is clearly not what I'm looking for. Does anyone know what I need to do? I've tried finding the dll files, but the most I've been able to do is make it give me a different error. If I put the 64 bit version of D3DX9_43.dll which I found online into the "DATA" folder, I get a message saying "The a... Read more

I assume people can already see my system specs since I filled them in properly.

This is my first time here but it's been a while that I'm having this issue.

Basically in certain games (mentioned in title) when getting into the game world, sometimes the MOMENT I spawn in the game, sometimes soon after, sometimes after 1-2 hours my monitor will go black and say I have lost signal input. The computer is still working in the background, I can hear the warning sound from the error, the game of course will crash thanks to that so any sound from that is cut, but there is no application error on the event viewer, just the Display error. I have managed to shut windows down while my screen was black (blindly hit Alt+Tab and then WinKey + Right Arrow + Enter), so it's not a system wide freeze.

When this happens, display is unrecoverable until a reboot. My graphics card is still powered when this happens, plus a PSU issue would probably cause a shut down or a reboot (I have a BeQuiet! Straight Power 10 80plus Gold 600W, so it's good quality.)

I have already tried the various power settings (max performance etc) and they didn't solve it, I have tried underclocking (-100 Core, -100 Memory) and it didn't fix it. I tried 6 different Nvidia drivers and it didn't fix it (all clean installed with DDU). I even re-formated my PC and installed fresh, didn't fix it.

I want to record a radio program that runs for three hours nightly, from midnight to 3:00A.M. on the internet. The program is the classics from the "Golden Age of Radio" that I hope to copy for a senior in the hospital.

The plan is to record it as a low resolution MP3 (32 or 64 bit), burn it to a cd that would be played on a discman.

I know I have to purchase a recording program such as Total Recorder or Super MP3 Recorder.

I have tried the trial version of TR that allows only 40 seconds. It is hard to determine how large the file size of the would be. The instructions seem to be slanted more to song recording length, not three hours.

Before I buy I would like any some advice. Has anyone done this? Are there any recomendations?

I have followed thoroughly various tutorials for setting up OBS for streaming. Initially I had set it up for Youtube, then switched to Twitch. This works fine. I have absolutely no complaint with that. Streaming out to these platforms is working as I would like.
This issue I'm experiencing is what I can best describe as a pulsing or jumping, about once per second when I play a file back that I have recorded (not streamed) with OBS.

The audio is flawless, no stuttering, nothing like that. Audio BR is at 160...

As I watch the status information in OBS as I am recording, I see no warning about overloaded encoder, the frame rates are where they are supposed to be, no dropped frames. everything should appear to be good. CPU load is unremarkable, again plenty of headroom. It doesn't seem to matter if I increase bit rate, decrease bit rate, CBR, VBR, increase or decrease framerate, or which software i use to view the output fine: VLC, WMP, whatever, there is this pulsing. Its just enough to be annoying. Its subtle, but it's there. And it doesn't matter which PC I play the file on ( I have a few I can test it with)

The computer running OBS is more than adequate for the task.

I have - in an effort to improve things - changed recording format, changed encoder, even the location to which I was saving it ( initially that was a network drive, but I change to an internal SSD for test purposes) I can not get rid of this.

This is just for a little pet project, I ... Read more

I recently had a friend replace my computer, as it died. On my other computer, I had Audacity to record internet streaming audio, and to record spoken parts for my podcast show. When I had Audacity installed on my old computer, it had 4 options: Line-In, Microphone, Stereo, and Mono. I used the mono and stereo options to record streaming internet audio.
After installing Audacity on this computer, I only have the Line-In, and Microphone options. I have tried downloading other versions of Audacity, but it still only has the Line-In and Mic options no matter what version that I install. (I have version 1.2.6 of Audacity installed presently on my computer) The sound card is a SoundMax AudioESP. My friend says that he installed the lateest drivers for that sound card before he gave it to me. I am at a loss as to how to regain the stereo and mono options on Audacity, so I can record internet audio once again.

Here is some info about my system

A:problems recording streaming audio with Audacity.

It's not Audacity, it's your sound card. It doesn't support the Advanced internal features for recording.
Go to the store and get a splitter. Plug it into your speaker port and run a jumper to your Line In from one of the splitter ports and plug your speakers into the other splitter port.
Configure Audacity to use the Line in as the Source device.

I record a radio program with a program called DAK, so I am getting streaming audio. But, when I play it back to listen to after it has been recorded, I also get any sound made in the area where my computer is. That is, If I have the radio on while I'm recording, that gets recorded as well. What can I do to stop that?

Greetings all, it has been awhile since I last posted, aside from my computers of which I have 4, I am also a long time audiophile, and have quite the collection of high end vintage stereo equipment. I have a friend who is more hard core about his sounds than I am.
I am fishing for opinions, I have bought a new ASUS lap top that I have a really good sound card and Graphics HDMI card installed. I also am an avid user of ITunes, and have found that their Lossless recordings are better than most of my CDs. I am also rather tired of playing one CD after another, so I recorded all my music, a little over 100gigs on 3 of my computers one being my new lap top. I also use ITunes Icloud service for storing my entire library including all my settings, and have used it to load up my laptop with all their lossless versions of all my music including what I bought from them.
I find the quality to be better than CDs, and better than what I hear on my tube CD player, while playing it from my computer files. My friend says that recorded music on a computer will degrade over time, and that a hard drive will not keep all files in one place, therefore the degrading of the information. He says that the new streaming services along with the new streaming players are far better. Herein lies the information I seek; Which is better, what are the opinions that the rest of you have, is computer recorded music better, or is streaming music on these new (very expensive) players better..., or is ther...

A:Computer Harddrive recording or Streaming lossless audio, which is best?

Which is better depends on the source and the quality settings of the capture. A lossless copy of a CD and the actual CD should sound the SAME. If they do not, you have a player, configuration, or hardware issue. It doesn't matter if you are comparing CD's, ripped files from a CD, or streaming files (assuming all files are from the same source CD version).

Files stored on a computer do not "degrade over time". They will never change unless of course the HDD fails. So you either misunderstood what you friend was telling you, or he doesn't understand computers.

Hi there!

I am trying to record internet radio as it is streaming online (Itunes radio). I am using recording software: Audacity on my laptop, which is a Lenovo U450 ideapad. However each time I record, I am picking up the sound of the laptop microphone as well, i.e. I canít just record the sound of the streaming music; I record all the other sounds in the room as well! The same thing happens with the 'Sound Recorder' software on the laptop. I have tried changing some settings on audacity ie trying to use different microphone inputs. It gives me the option to use:

MME Microsoft Sound Mapper Ė Input
MME Realtek High Definition
Windows Direct Sound Primary Capture Driver
Windows Direct Sound microphone (Realtek High Definition)

However all these currently pick up the laptop microphone ie my speaking as well as the music. I tried using an older version of Audacity but that didnít work. Do you have any ideas around it please? Maybe you can you tell me how to disable the main laptop microphone so it just picks up whatís playing? I used to be able to do this perfectly on my pc. Thank you very much for trying!
