Q: BSOD occurs while opening browsers and playing games.

Hi, i hope someone could help about my problem. I'm using windows 7 32bit version and I've been having a lot of pc crashes lately and its getting a blue screen and an error related to irql_not_less_or_equal. i really dont know what it is but i manage to get a minidump file. i dont know how to read this error report but from what i read it tracks down the cause of the problem. i'm hoping to find the answer and fix it. the minidump files are attached, 3 reports all in all. i hope someone can help me. thank you very much

Preferred Solution: BSOD occurs while opening browsers and playing games.

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.)

BSOD been happening for a while now till the point that I have tried everything that was recommended by others. Was wondering if you guys would be able to help, cheers.

A:BSOD playing games, using browsers and skype

- See post #15 -
Hello and welcome to 7F .

What I'm seeing is the graphics adapter failing to "wake up" from an idle state over several driver
version, your laptop features nVidia's Optimus technology which is designed to conserve power
by switching between the integrated graphics and the more powerful (and power hungry GPU chip)
and that is what the OS is failing to do.

Other Verifier enabled dumps show a couple of drivers at fault, one of which is known
to be BSOD inducing with the 2009 version which you're using, but those are not
the more pressing matter.

I'm pretty sure you can't disable the optimus feature but I'll ask other members for more assistance
on this subject in case there is something I'm unaware of .

Hello. Over the last 6 months I get an unreal amount of BDOD'S. I used to get one once a week, but it has gotten to the point where I am getting around 3-4 daily. A Sure way to produce one would be to open a game I play (Guild Wars 2) and open a youtube video as well.

Sometimes I will be playing a game (League of Legends) and I will get another one if I am clicking too rapidly.

I also have skype open all the time if that helps with anything. Thank you for the help in advance, I really need help solving this!

I've had a lot of bsod's in the past but this set has come at the same time that I'm having issues with powering my usb peripherals. I'm suspecting there might be a hardware issue I wouldn't be able to diagnose alone. Bsod's start 10-20 minutes into playing games or an hour or two into internet browsing. Any point in the right direction is appreciated.

Sometimes i get bsod while running games. i don't know whats causing this, i pretty much don't know about bsods.
I just suspect the reason is there is secondary/primary graphic card on my computer, its called apu.
Device manager shows two display adapters, one of them "AMD HD 7660G" (my processor is AMD A-10 4600 APU with Radeon HD Graphics).
Other one "AMD Radeon HD 7700 series" says the device manager. (HD 7730M Chelsea Pro says the sticker on laptop)

I had this issue both before the format, and after the format. .dmp file is the first bsod after format.
I will try provide information if you ask anything else than posted.
I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!
Note: User Account Control disabled on my computer. If this info helps anything.

A:BSOD playing games, or opening high graphic related programs

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

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

I thought my hdd is faulty so i ran a chkdsk and i got no errors.No errors detected with hd tune pro either.
Last night i ran memtest and after some time i got pass complete no errors detected so i shut it down.

A:Can't install some games,Sometimes BSOD occurs

Hello Poli sorry you have had to wait so long now when you say you ran memtest how many "passes" did you let it run for because you have to run at least 8 passes to get any confirmation of errors or not .


The memtest you will need to make a bootable disk / stick andset the BIOS to boot from the optical (disk) or USB and it will take a fairtime to run- some leave it overnight..
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
But one thing is very important you must let the test run for at least 8 passes anyless and the findings are no good. Now if errors come up straight away then youcan stop it - see my pics (Keep in mind these are example only as they are shots of older versions but you will get my drift). Now if there are errors and you have more than onestick of RAM in then you will need to test each stick ie remove the sticks andreplace stick 1 in slot 1 and test no errors do the same in slot 2 withstick 1 no errors then repeat the process with stick 2 - that will show up thefaulty stick - the other thing is it could be a faulty slot but most unusual.

It is a very lengthy and tedious process but worth it if youhave errors.

Hi, I am new to posting in forums but have regularly use previous threads which have been really useful, so here goes. My sons computer crashes after about 5 or 10 minutes of gaming (longer on occasions). I've tested the NVIDIA GEForce 660GTX using FurMark and it runs fine. I've run MemTest and the RAM appears OK. I ran Prime95 for an hour and all seemed OK.

I'm thinking now this could be a software issue. I've reinstalled the op system and loaded the latest NVIDIA drivers and chipset drivers:-
990FX Extreme 3 mobo
AMD FX6 6300 3.5GHz processor
Windows 7 64 bit

but it still occurs.

I've attached the SF Diagnostic results in the hope someone can help me sort out the problem as I cant seem to establish a theme on whats going wrong.

Just to add some detail. The games involved are Steam based - Dragon Age Origins, Far Cry2 and also LoL.

Thanks Dill

Ever since I installed new RAM, which was 2 sticks of Silicon Power 8x2 RAM, my games have been crashing, and occasionally, I will get a blue screen of death. I tried using my original RAM, but it only uses 4gb out of 8gb, and some of my games won't launch. I tried ordering 2 sticks of 4gb RAM, but the problem keeps occurring. I have also tried to switch around my RAM in every combination, to no avail. I'm out of ideas, and I need some help.

Hey guys,

I'm unsure if this is the correct place to post this, if not, it would be much appreciated if you could point me to the appropriate place.

So i've had this build for a few months now. It is my first build. Here are the specs:
Intel Core i5-4690K
Zotac GTX 970
8GB Ram
Asus Z-97-A mobo
Windows 8.1

When i'm playing big games such as BF4 or GTA V, it likes to crash midway through the game constantly. I can play BF4 for a while before it crashes back to the desktop and i cannot play GTA for more than 10 minutes before it does the same. Sometimes these games even causes a BSODr. As well as, Crysis 3 just completely crashes and freezes my computer after a very short time of playing,

Also sometimes when i'm rendering a video in Sony Vegas Pro 13, i get a BSOD too.

I think it may be to do with my graphics card but i just can't quite put my finger on it. My GPU drivers are all updated.

Any ideas?

I got a 2600, 2gb of ram, Gigabyte GA-7n400-L mobo, 9800 Pro, and a few HDD's, and this has been annoying me lately, mainly because I've been using a few games in window mode, including Battlefield 2 (not often, usually only to test something), it's map editor, and the games Football Manager 2006 and Galactic Civilisations 2 (both of which have options to use window mode).

I had previously belive it was caused after playing battlefield 2, but the last one (tonight, and the final straw to get help) I had'nt played BF2 at all. It happens after hours of playing (I'd say tonights after the memtest was about 4 hours after startup), and I can't "replicate it" beyond playing and eventually it happens. I always have Firefox, Windows Media Player, MSN, Xfire on, and sometimes Azereus as well as playing.

I did'nt have memory dumps on the right way until I saw the site, so I only have the 4 most recent.

I get a variety of stop messages (the line that tells you what type of error it was), including:
7F - UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP_M (1000007f) - Latest

I did a 5 hour memtest and got no errors (5 "passes"). Was this long enough to test the memory? I don't think I've ever gotten this without actually being playing a game in window mode (although a few times the BF2 editor crashed, but I thi... Read more

hello friends. title says it all. I play wow, and recently ive been getting bsods. my nvidia driver will perform a TDR but will not recover. the screen goes black, and computer restarts, i do not see the bluescreen, but after restart windows shows the error.

at first i didn't know what it was, after doing some research i determined it was because my card is overheating. normally, while not gaming, card sits at a comfy 50c. while gaming, it shot up to 90c, was even at 100c at one point. i immediately shutdown the computer. on a whim i took the card out, cleaned the heatsink and the gpu and reapplied thermal compound, and it seemed to do the trick. that was 2 days ago, and just again i got the 116.

Ive swept all drivers and reinstalled latest nvidia drivers, air dusted it,, idk, theres not too much more to do. i own a EVGA nvidia gt 630. cheap card i know. which could be the problem.

couple questions; fan on the card is missing a blade, dont know when why or how it happened. i just caught my eye when i replaced the compound. Fan makes a pretty good buzz, and it can sound like grinding at times, almost as if the bearing in the fan wasn't oiled or something pre assembly.

Will evga replace fan/heatsink? what else can i try and do to alleviate the issue? im posting the
dump analysis below. if any more info is need please let me know.

Thank you ahead of time everyone. i appreciate it.

EDIT: I had a fresh BSOD while trying to upload the perfmon log. I have included the dump for that separately. The reason was something along the lines of 'attempt to write over non writable portion'

Hello all,

I have been experiencing a variety of issues with my computer ever since re-installing Windows 7 Professional as a student upgrade edition (no pre-installed sp1 - had to install a ton of updates).

I have had various issues occur, many of which have been fixed only to lead to new problems arising.

I have various suspicions about the sauces but I would like you guys to take a moment to look over the problem and suggest any solutions.

Attached is the mini-dump from the last day or two, which contains several BSOD logs.

The computer also has problems booting, which often means that the computer needs to be repaired using the System Repair or Restore tool.

I have been having problems for almost 6 months now.

Thanks in advance,

First of all I have to say sorry for my bad english. If there's something you don't understand, please, tell me and I'll try to explain better.

Hello, I come here because "Dr. Web" wasn't able to solve my huge problem.
Let me explain: just over a week ago, while I was playing with AION, my default browser opened windows at random, without me to do anything different from playing.
So I said to myself "all right", because just closing both was enough to continue playing normally.
After that, I played another game ( TERA ), and since then the situation has worsened.
While playing the browser keeps opening, causing lag, blocking my vision and sometimes causing a crash.
I thought it was a situation caused by TERA, but my brother said he had the same problem with other games.

I tried to install any type of game, thinking it was a problem only for those of Gameforge, but nothing, the default browser ( in this case Chrome ) continues to open windows.
I also tought "maybe it's Chrome my problem", but nothing, any other browser give me the same problem.

I was wondering if the issue of my mad-browser was something dedicated only to online games, so I installed a local game and set off my connection, but the problem persists and the windows still opens.

I did all kinds of possible scans with my antivirus ( AGV ) but did not find anything, I tried with CCleaner but nothing.
I do not know what to do, and I sincerly hope you can he... Read more

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.

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 ^^)

My HDD died, so I opted for a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional on the new HDD. I reinstalled all my programs and drivers and such. But I've had the same problem ever since:

Sometimes, randomly, when I start my computer, these things happen all at once:Microsoft Games (solitaire, minesweeper, majong, etc.) will not open. I double-click on them, and then nothing. No error, nothing to indicate the computer is trying to open them. If I go directly to the application and try to open them there, same thing.
Video does not play correctly. In WMP, it just plays the audio and displays a small screenshot of the video (as if it were album art).

Divx player won't play anything at all. VLC player would open a separate screen called YUV SDL Output. But the latest update for VLC fixed that.
If I try to play a DVD, I get this error:Windows Media Player cannot play DVD video. You might need to adjust your Windows display settings. Open display settings in Control Panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings.
Changing the settings does nothing.

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!

A:BSOD when opening browsers

Can you zip and upload BSOD memory dump files for me to download.
Configure Driver Verifier to find out which driver is causing the BSOD the current memory dump files shows Windows system files and drivers as the cause of the BSOD which is not always correct.  After your computer have BSOD while using the Driver Verifier upload the memory dump files stored in "C:\Windows\Minidump" directory and give us the download link hopefully memory dump file will show which driver is causing the BSOD.
First create a System Restore point.
To start using Driver Verifier, type Verifier into Start Menu search box.
Once Verifier is started, you will need to configure it. You can create standard settings.

In the next menu screen, select Automatically select all drivers installed on this computer

Click finish to reboot computer.
Verifier will consume a lot of CPU and slow down the machine considerably.
You may also experience additional crashes.
You will need to collect a handful of memory dump files.
You can disable Driver Verifier after you collect few memory dump files.
Start the Driver Verifier and delete the existing settings.
If your machine cannot boot into Windows normally because of Driver Verifier, you can disable the Driver Verifier by booting into Safe mode.
Upload the BSOD files for us to download to analyze.

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

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.

This is a windows 7 64 bit (ultimate) machine. All started a few days ago with a BSOD. Upon restart the computer was very slow.. insane resources being used by low key processes and could barely use windows. I thought maybe it was hardware, so I reseated the HDD and fiddled with the sata cables, ran a checkdsk. Nope the HDD should be good. Memory good too. Boot it back up and it's still screwed - everything takes forever to load, a folder or a browser. Spybot and Malware bytes could not be used, they were disabled somehow (just dont open). Installing any other spyware programs wouldn't work either. Safe mode or booting from disk made no difference on any of these issues as well. THEN I saw multiple chrome browers being opened automatically from my desktop! All to fake anti malware websites! Now I decided to back up any new data and system restore which has solved the issues with slowness HOWEVER, my firewall is giving my a notification constantly about this file "~f3c7.tmp.exe" attempting to make an outgoing connection - the second I block it another notification pops up. The source is all that changes.

I have reinstalled Windows 7 and will bump this thread if the issue persists. For now, all my problems look to have been resolved. Please don't waste time on the below post(s).

So, here's my story. I built my own computer. I've had it for around 3 years now, while giving it hardware and OS upgrades during that time. This past January/February, I decided it was time to get Windows 7. I backed up the files I wanted, formatted my HDD, and bam, new copy of Windows 7. Installed the drivers I needed and it's been working fine ever since...until around July. My last piece of major hardware installed was my second 2 TB HDD, but it was installed pre-Windows 7. I've had BSOD's about once per week to two times per week to once every two weeks. This week was different. It's been happening more often(once per day or more) and now I need help.

Recently(the past week, maybe past 2-3), it would BSOD and go to a "Configure Windows for Updates" screen on startup. Afterwards, it would restart and do this AGAIN. Now, here's a part I don't understand. Sometimes, it would let me login after configuring again. Sometimes it wouldn't. Since then, I've simply deleted the pending.xml and reboot.xml files in my Windows/Winsxs folder to prevent this from happening. I have Windows Auto Updates turned off. I install them manually, and I hadn't downloaded any recently, so this was very weird to me.

Sometimes, after a BSOD, it takes a while for my BIOS screen itself to load up, which is... Read more

A:BSOD across multiple programs, ranging from games to web browsers

Hello Syndfull and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not a BSOD expert. The experts on this Forum are seriously back-logged helping others. So until one responds to your thread there are a few things to check.

- Make sure your memory sticks, GPU, etc are seated properly
- If using multiple memory sticks test each stick by itself in slot # 1 (or whichever slot the motherboard manufacturer recommends for a single stick)
- After checking each stick, check each slot
- Check your power management options.
- Check your PSU.
- Use default BIOS setting if you overclock

You could also run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) It will look for damaged or corrupt system files and try to replace them with the correct versions. If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If still no luck, you could work through these troubleshooting steps prepared by one of the forum experts. It's time consuming but may help isolate the problem.

I've had the same BSOD for a while now.
Before I installed a different motherboard, CPU and a different video card and after all that was changed.
It happens at random times, when I'm streaming with a game and OBS or when I'm using Photoshop or even when I'm just watching something on Netflix on my browser.

I used to have this:
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670 / 3.4 GHz

I hope someone can help me with what it is.

Drivers have been updated, reinstalled many times, windows has been clean installed many times as well.

Some say it's not a bad BSOD but it's annoying to say the least, also someone said something about a Network driver but different people have checked multiple times and also they couldn't fix it.

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.

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

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.

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!

A:BSOD when playing games. BlueScreenView says ntoskrnl.exe caused BSOD

My system specs are:

Intel Core i7-3770
Asus Sabertooth Z77
Corsair Vengeance Low Profile DDR3 @1600mhz CAS9
Kingston HyperX 3k 120GB SSD (boot, Battlefield 3, Microsoft Office)
Asus DirectCUII GTX 670
Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 watt
Razer Blackwidow Ultimate
Cyborg RAT7 Mouse

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.

Can someone please take a look on my attachment. Any help will be gladly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Oh btw here's my system specs.

Win 7 64 bit
I7-2600k at stock
Maximus IV Extreme
G. Skill 4gb 1600
OCZ 60 gb SSD
Kingwin Lazer 1000w psu
GTX 670 at stock

A:BSOD when computer is idle. No BSOD when playing games for hours.

@writhziden can you please help me?

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???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

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

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.

A:BSOD troubles seem to be while playing games - different BsOD codes

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

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
