BSOD PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (Usually whilst playing Titanfall 2)

Q: BSOD PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (Usually whilst playing Titanfall 2)

Hello Guys,

I have been having a problem with my #teamred PC since I built it 2 years ago but it's reached the point where it's getting me down now.
My system is:

Desktop PC
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit sp1 (original os) OEM (I think) - recent clean install by me (again)

*2 years old*
Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU AMD FX 9370 black edition @ 4.4GHz (not overclocked)

Corsair RM Series RM 1000 '80+ Gold' 1000W Power Supply

*1 year old*
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit

I have done a full memtest86 (with both sticks in). It took 18 hours and showed no errors.

I play a lot of hours gaming. I used to play Evolve but got banned for 'product tampering' I didn't tamper with my game. I thought it was the games problem, keep crashing but now I play Titanfall 2 and still crash, I think that it may be my PC?

I Found that my Antec K?HLER H2O 1250 was failing to turn one of the fans so I have replaced that with a Corsair H105 water cooler.

Any help or advice would be most welcome...

Preferred Solution: BSOD PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (Usually whilst playing Titanfall 2)

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.)


Computer goes to bluescreen after a few minutes playing Titanfall, clean installed OS with same result.

No issues playing other games e.g. World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, etc, so far.

Bluescreenviewer mostly reports ntoskrnl.exe as the cause although prior to OS reinstall, hal.dll popped up a time or two also.

I have run memtest86+ for 8 passes with no errors reported. (Didn't realize this test took so long, not keen to do it again,

I've tested my drive, no errors, run sfc /scannow, no errors, used prime95 and no bsods.

I'm at a loss as to why. Do I need to just buy a complete new system? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hi dragonpunch,

Currently I'm analysing the dump files.
Right now it looks like your CPU is not compatible with your system. (This doesn't mean the CPU is faulty.)
But first check if there are driver updates available at your manufacturers site, because this crash could also be caused by drivers.
The following is for information purposes only.

The following information contains the relevant information from the blue screen analysis:

So, i got a relative new (<1 year old) home build PC. There weren't any problems during the first couple of months. But now, i got these bsod's while playing Titanfall, viewing a movie or video on YouTube. So I thought there was something wrong with my video card or it's driver. So I ran verifier.exe to see what could be wrong, restarted my PC and that's when i ran into a BSOD-loop, with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Not a problem, If i could enable safe mode in the recovery menu that shows up after a few bsod's. I could try and solve the problem with google. The problem was that my pc didn't react to my keyboard at all. So after many reboots, i decided to clear my CMOS on my motherboard. With success, because my keyboard did work again, and i could reboot again, without safe mode with verifier on. So I assumed my problem was solved, and disabled verifier. that was 2 days ago, but today, after a whole day working for school on my pc, I needed so relax time and decided to watch a video on YouTube. And that's when i got another bsod with System_Service_Exception Attachment 52964

I have gotten this BSOD recently playing TitanFall. I have not experienced it any other time. Running a clean install of the latest GeForce drivers. This computer was built in January and I have not noticed this BSOD until this week with TitanFall; during the TitanFall Beta and with older Nvidia drivers this did not occur either.

I've attached the "Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2" zip file for analysis, but Windows 8.1 does not allow me to run perfmon /report. It simply says "An error occured while attempting to generate the report. The operator or administrator has refused the request." despite my account being the administrator and CMD being opened with admin privileges. So if more information is needed because of this, please let me know.

Before I list specs, I just want to mention that 24 hour of Memtest86+ 5.0.1 yielded no errors.

? OS - Windows 8.1 Pro
? x64
? Originally installed OS: Windows 8 Pro
? I purchased this OS through my school and got a download link for the ISO from Microsoft.
? Age of system - January 2014 for most parts, PSU and one HDD were purchased in 2010.
? OS was installed in January 2014 after new computer assembly on a cleanly formatted SSD.

? CPU - i5 4670K (no overclock)

A:[SOLVED] BSOD 0xA - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL while playing TitanFall


The attached DMP file is of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.


1. Uninstall Asus PC Probe ASAP.

2. Are you using OpenVPN/COMODO?

Hi there,

i hope u can help me with my problem. I got random BSODs while playing games. First i thought of failing hardware, but i did some testing (memtest, dell diagnostics, prime95, furmark, etc) and all finished without having a bluescreen or some other strange behavior..
So i did a clean install of Win8.1 and newest drivers, but the BSODs happened again. I must say i use kind of an unique system configuration and i still have in mind that it could have something todo with that.

Alienware 15 Notebook
i7 4710HQ
GTX970m (with Amplifier GTX980)
16GB RAM (Kingston)
250GB m.2 SSD

i tried also to debug the memorydump with Windbg64. It points to a module named nt, which i think must be ntosknl.exe (i know its like john doe...)

i really appreciate your work and i am very thankful for ur help

Hello Please follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Read other 8 answers


This is my first post here and after looking around for a while I'm still having problems.

I have read the Posting Instructions and used the SF Diagnostic Tool, results included.
I'm not sure if that includes all my system information, but if anything is missing I'll post as soon as I can.

To clarify further the BSOD has happened on a variety of games, sometimes it can happen with in 5mins of loading one other times I am good for a couple of hours or I can play till I've quit the game with no crashing.

I have done scans with MSE, Spybot and Malware Bytes with no issues found.
From looking at other threads, one recommended using a driver scanner to check for updates (SlimDrives), again no updates found.

That's all I can think of for now, also to be honest I am a bit reluctant in having to do a full re-install and would very much like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks in advance,

Hi all,

Playing Dishonoured has been causing my comp to BSOD every 40 mins or so. Temps seem fine but I thought it could be a PSU problem (it's the no-name one that came with the case).

It BSOD this morning whilst Dishonoured was running but minimised, which is weird because the GPU wasn't working hard and CPU was at about 47%.

So anyway, I was hoping that some altruistic soul could check my crashdumps and make sure it's not a driver issue, before I shell out for a new PSU

If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

1. Ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.

2. Uninstall whichever of these you have:

Hey guys. So for the past few months whenever i play any games i eventually get BSOD.. sometimes 5 minutes in.. sometimes an hour in. I've downloaded blue screen viewer and got a couple of screenshots of a couple of different bsod's.. these 2 seem to be the only ones that come up. I tried running a ram tester and that came back with no errors.. Just wondering if anyone can decipher this for me.
Furthermore.. i don't know if this is related or not but if i leave my computer on for say a day or so, everything starts to lag.. videos start to stutter and there is just lag in general in everything i do.. once i restart it all comes good... for a while but then starts up again. I tried disabling every non essential startup program but it still does it.
Thanks guys!
Also.. i am trying to add the dump files but can't figure out how to gain permission to do so...

Title pretty much tells you the issue, and hopefully the file requested will explain what is wrong.

I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit over my existing version of 32-bit. Since the upgrade, I have been getting BSOD and auto shut downs whilst playing Battlefield 3 however it has happened a couple times when just using the pc for general use where it would just freeze and start buzzing or restart itself. I have had a couple error messages: dxgmms1.sys, 0x0000007E, 0x0000001E, 0x00000024, 0x0000003B and win32k.sys. I have since tried to repair the install by running it again but the problem is still there. I have done several diagnostic scans, system info scans, device manager etc but none of them report a problem. Never got a BSOD whilst on 32-bit.

What can I do to fix it? Is it possible I have installed 64-bit incorrectly?

A:BSOD/Auto shut down whilst playing BF3

A Google search indicates this is primarily caused by a device driver problem. Have you done a Windows update to get all the latest fixes, including device drivers?

What is the make and model number of your computer? Fill out the System Specs (User CP, Edit System Specs).

This could also be caused by defective RAM. Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

DO NOT burn the .iso file directly to CD. It must be used as input to a program that knows what to do with it, like the one I mentioned above.

Boot the CD and run for at least 3 complete passes unless it shows errors sooner than that.

Hello all,

This is my first post on these very helpful forums. I hope someone will be able to assist me.

I have a HP ProBook running Windows 7. Ever since I got the laptop, I often get BSODs while attempting to run games (Total War series, The Force Unleashed, just to name a couple). This does not occur with all games, nor does it occur with any other type of software (granted, I mainly use my Windows installation for gaming and other simple tasks such as word processing).

I'm uploading the DM Log Collector output .zip file.

Any help would be greately appreciated.

EDIT: I added the output from BlueScreenView, that blames 'atikmdag.sys' for the crash. Just in case this info can be of any help to you.

EDIT: Here is my system info:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz
MOTHERBOARD: Hewlett-Packard 1948
BIOS: Default System BIOS

Hi all,

I've recently switched over from my old HDD to a shiny new SSD. It was a fresh windows install and I've installed all drivers for my gpu, mobo etc. fresh onto this. It seems now though that whenever I play a game I get a BSOD. I've had this happen so far whilst playing Skyrim, EVE online and Company of Heroes, and I haven't really loaded up any other games because there's not much fun if they're going to crash 10 mins in! The crashes occur anywhere between after 10 mins of play and after 1hr. I thought it was a temperature issue as Skyrim used to crash before I got the SSD, but seemed to work fine if I put my fan speeds up to ~90% in MSI Afterburner. After 10 mins of EVE online with the fan speeds set to 90% I got a crash the other day though. I've also tried uninstalling and re-installing my graphics drivers and still got a crash :/ I've also updated my BIOS and that hasn't fixed the problem, so I thought I'd post here and see if someone else can help me get to the bottom of this!

System specs are:
Gigabyte GA-Z68A-D3-B3 Mobo
Intel i5 2500K - Not overclocked
Nvidia GTX480 - Also not overclocked
OCZ Agility 3 64GB SSD
780W PSU

Installing and Using 2 antivirus programs in the same system,usually you dont have double protection. You have double the problems.

Remove avast from your system.
Remove avg from your system.
Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall enable.
You can also use this Good and Free system security combination.
If you had make any changes in windows using TuneUp Utilities,set everything back to default then uninstall TuneUp Utilities.
Generally TuneUp Utilities they dont "tuneup" the system,they mess up the system.
Windows 7 does not need any "external" help.

Hello again TSF,
I've recently encountered 2 Blue Screens within the last 2 days, that appear to occur whilst playing the Facebook game 'Sims Social'...
Of course that's probably just a coincidence, but i've never encountered BSOD's on this computer yet (had it for less than 1 year).
It may also be worth noting that if i remember correctly, World of Warcraft was also running in the background whilst alt-tabbing to play on the Sims Social, just incase this links to any reasoning behind the crashes.

Attached (hopefully) items include the required tests from the sticky, aswell as the 2 dumps from the bsods.


? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ?
Win 7 64-bit
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
? What was original installed OS on system?
Win 7 64-bit
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
? Age of system (hardware)
Approx. 8 months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS?
Reformatted maybe 1 or 2 months ago.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 760 @ 2.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~4.0GHz
? Video Card
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 768mb
? MotherBoard
? Power Supply - brand & wattage

? System Manufacturer
Gigabyte (custom build from Overclockers.co.uk)
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)

A:2 BSOD's 2 days in a row, whilst playing Sims Social?

Okay it would appear that it has absolutely nothing to do with Sims Social
Just had another BSoD, literally within 2 hours of my last one, this time whilst playing World of Warcraft.
I have attached the minidump for this crash.

EDIT: Just to note, after restarting the PC from a crash, a directx9 error pops up. Can't remember exactly what it states, but it's something along the lines of it having issues starting up i believe. The little 'boodle-boop' noise that sounds when you plug in a USB plays a couple of times after a reboot from BSoD.
Sorry if any of this is irrelevant, just feel as though I should note everything i can think of! :)

So let first start of by saying that i've been trying to get rid of these BSoD a long time,
this is not my first time asking for help on forums. I'm going to link to a page where i have posted most of my problems with this computer and they've tried to help me, anyway here it is: BSoDs & Reboots That's the site where i got most help.

Anyway on to the problem, they've concluded it's memory corruption and i've ran Memtest86+ twice & 6-7 passes on the sticks in different slots. I've tried to change
the speeds and timings on them, but my computer refuses to use them as my computer freezes and upon reboot it gives me some error telling me "Overclock failed, reset to default?" although it isn't really overclocking it's their default value. The BSoD problem persisted. So after not getting any responses to my latest posts i thought that i'd remove one memory stick too see if it'd work. And it did, i've only gotten 2-3 BSoDs since and that's 3 weeks, i was used to getting them 3 times a day if not more. Reason for making this thread is that i got one while idling today.
Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
- the original installed OS on the system?

Full retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)?
1 year and a couple of months old.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
7 months, i think i reinstalled it in February

Hi there,
I would be very grateful of any help you could give me to resolve this problem. I am new to your forums but have read several replies to other peoples posts in an attempt to find a way solve my own, to no avail. (some of what you have suggested is way over my head)
For a few weeks when I shut down the PC it takes ages to shut down, or has to be manually turned off because its clear it isn't going to shut down properly on its own.
The other day my elderly neighbour who doesn't have a computer said her niece had mailed her via my computer with some information she wanted. When I opened the mail there was a .pdf file attached, which I opened, and looked at, shortly afterwards I was looking on the John Lewis website for my neighbour and my PC froze completely. The mouse wouldn't move, and I couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Del, toggle out or do anything but a hard restart. Once I had rebooted, I ran an AVG scan, and it found no threats. The PC worked fine for a few hours, and then when I ran World of Warcraft later that evening, after playing for a short while it froze again. The music still plays in the back ground, but the game froze, and again, couldn't toggle out, or Alt+f4 or Ctrl+Alt+Del. Over the next couple of days it crashed like this again around 6 or 7 times. I searched the WoW forums for anything I could do to see if it was WoW related.

Hi been getting frequent random BSODs whilst playing world of tanks. Each time the problems seems to be caused by atikmpag.sys. I have tried uninstalling and installing the most recent drivers but got another BSOD as soon as I tried to play the game again.

All of the dumps are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which can be down to the driver, heat, power to the card, the PCI slot it's in or a bad card among other things. Your driver isn't the most recent from what I can see so we'll try that first.

Download the latest driver from here and save it to your desktop. Download DDU and follow Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use to remove all traces of your current driver. Reboot and install the downloaded driver.

Yesterday randomly whilst watching youtube with only three windows open, Youtube, Teamspeak and Notepad I got an unexpected restart.

The recovery process when the Laptop restarted achieved nothing other than the computer knowing that it couldn't fix it.

I then did a factory reset of the operating system due to my personal files being on my second internal hard drive.

After which the first thing I did once it had finished setup was bring up Task Manager. I saw my CPU at 100% never stopping. I closed down the program from e-machines (installs things like Windows live essentials) on the second restart and I appeared to get around 5 minutes up time before BSOD.

I copied what was left of anything personal from my C to D (I chose to keep user files) and am now doing this via Safe Mode.

Attached are my Dumps and a Boot Log.

Not to bump the topic however after using Safe Mode for about 30 minutes I wondered if it was over and started in normal mode. Five minutes in I got BSOD and this time it was something different, see attached. Also I saw this topic moved into here and filled out the form:

I recently changed my mother board to an ASUS maximus vii ranger and have been having a few problems with the transition.

I had to replace my SSD initially as i found that it was incompatible with the motherboard. I had been looking at upgrading that part of the system anyway so that was no problem.

Shortly after sorting out the booting issues due to the incompatible SSD i found my computer generating a lot of BSODs during normal operation of windows. This was rectified by updating my windows to the current version using windows update.

The 0124 BSODs have been occurring mainly on intensive games such as GTA V and Far Cry 4.

Any information you could provide me with in order to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Heya all

I have a bit of a problem where I'm not sure whether it's driver related or whether something is failing on my computer. My husband seems to think it's driver related but although I can build my own computers when it comes to things like this I'm completely useless!

First off I can't remember whether I had this issue on my previous set when I first installed Windows 7 or whether it's been just when I've upgraded my computer. I just can't recall the first time I started having this problem.

The first thing I noticed was whenever I exited playing a game my screen would go black, with monitor message saying no video output, and the green power button on my monitor would go orange and I would have turn off and then switch my monitor back on for the screen to come back up. Then I noticed that it started doing it randomly when my computer was idle. Again I would turn my monitor off and then back on again to get the screen back up. During these times when this has happened I've never had to reset my computer. I've recently updated my graphics drivers and the issue seems to be a little more often than not now and my husband thinks it's the graphics drivers that's causing it. I've done a search on the internet and I've come across similar problems but requires a restart, which could mean monitor failure or graphics card failure so I'm unsure as to whether it is driver related.

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.

I was playing Burnout when the computer crashed and the blue screen error came up. Since then when I turn the computer on all the fans turn on, HDD activity light flashes but nothing appears on the monitor.I can't boot in to safe-mode or enter the bios settings. I've tried using the 8800gt and the onboard gfx (950 gma) but nothing appears. I read that taking the ram out and then turning it on the mobo should beep..but it didn't however it did beep when I didn't plug the cable in to the 8800gt.

I have a Asrock 1333-D667 mobo
Windows 7 RC
2gb Ram
8800gt 512mb
E2180 @2.00GHz

A:Computer had a bsod whilst playing a game..now computer won't boot.

No beep without ram installed does not look good. Here is some basic troubleshooting you can do.

1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical.
2 Remove all add-in cards except the video card
3 Disconnect any usb type device; ie hub, printer, scanner, etc.
4 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 20~30seconds. Replace jumper to keep position.
5 Now attempt a pw ON of the system and see if it will post.

If it does post in the above config, then shutdown and add devices one at a time until you find the problem. If it does not post, then start replacing parts with known good units.

FWIW I would start with the pw supply as the first part replaced.

First off it doesn't only crash when playing games, just almost all of the time.
I cannot remember when this first started but i assume it was around the time of windows 10, my PSU became very hot which i noticed upon crashes, so i used an external fan to keep it cool, which it did a very good job of. however, today it has been crashing constantly when playing games, sometimes after 1m or 1h, the PSU is very cool however my CPU fan becomes very hot so i can only assume it is the CPU that is messing up (the CPU fan is still running so that is not broken). i get no blue screen or error message it just shuts down, sometimes automatically restarting but other times pending on me turning it back on.
I have tried reinstalling windows, looked online for hours with no luck. i saw something about updating BIOS but that is beyond me and sounds dangerous from all the warnings i see online. on one error i got a watchdog code which i looked up to find multiple causes, one involving a faulty CPU, i am reluctant to replace it if it is not necessary but am desperate for any help, on the crash event viewer it just says that windows shut down unexpectedly, no error codes or solutions, thanks for any help

A:PC Crashing Whilst Playing Games


First, it is very hard to give advise when we don't know what system you have.
Please give the make and model, service tag if available, or if custom please list all the exact parts (eg don't list 500w psu, list the full model Corsair CX500W CMPSU-500CX)
Alternatively you can run the TSG utility and copy and paste the info back here.

Next you need to check your temps, both at idle and under load.
Ideally at idle in the BIOS and under load using monitoring software (lots available but the more accurate will be one provided by the motherboard manufacturer if available).
Report all the temps back here (CPU, Motherboard, GPU)

Hey there,

This is my first post here.

Basically, in the last week (Thursday 16th and last night) I've had two blue screens. The first thing I should say is that both of these occurred whilst I was playing the new PC release of Grand Theft Auto. In both cases I received the same message: "driver irql_less_or_not_equal", which I'm assuming has something to do with an out of date driver somewhere?

That's about all I can say about the blue screen messages themselves as I had no time to take down any of the information and because I've never experienced these issues on any machine. I do however have the dump files which I will upload.

When the second blue screen occurred last night I was concerned that it may have something to do with my new RAM, which I installed last Thursday. I've since realised however that the first of these incidents took place shortly after midnight on Thursday, and the RAM was installed in the evening later that day.

Out of interest, I'm using Windows Home Premium 64bit.

There is no other obvious symptoms of a problem with the PC, but I'm keen to find out the issue.

Thank you in advance for your help!

A:2x BSODs in the last few days, whilst playing GTA V.

Hello, TuffGnarl and welcome to the Forums. I will try to help you with this. Please fill out the BSOD Posting InstructionsBlue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions. I would also appreciate if you add your PSU to your System Specs.

You had 2 dump files, both listing the same thing.

BugCheck D1, {70, 2, 0, fffff88001351195}
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for iaStorA.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for iaStorA.sys

That is the Intel Raid Driver. It was listed on both dumps. This is your current driver,

As you can see it is in need of updating. If you are not using it as a Raid Driver, you may be better of uninstalling it.

Also listed on both dumps was

I loved playing Solitaire in Win 7 but having an unusual problem playing the Solitaire app in Win 10.
After about 15 minutes, the computer just shuts down. No warning, no error messages, no BSOD, nothing.
I can guarantee you it is not just a coincidence. My computer could be running for days without any problem but as soon as I start playing Solitaire this happens.

I would really appreciate some advice. My computer is an Acer Laptop with i3 CPU, 8GB RAM and Intel HD graphics and using a 24" Acer monitor.

Many Thanks..

Make sure all of your graphics drivers are up to date. It may be that this game works the system too hard. Try monitoring your system temperatures a while and see if we can at least rule that out.

Hello there,

Although I don't have a gaming pc it has always run games for at least 2 years. The past month or so whenever I get into a game my computer will randomly freeze with a massive static sound forcing me to hard reset it. I now get tons of errors in my event viewer. I have pretty much done everything but I cannot find a solution to this. I have reinstalled windows 10 twice, fixed error codes 1 by 1 but however keep popping up. Really do not know how to fix this and whether this is a hardware or software issue.
The specs are:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 69 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 4019 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, 1024 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 444 GB (371 GB Free);
Motherboard: Acer, EA50_HB
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated
Have the new NVidia drivers and PC has turbo boost up to 3.1ghz

Thank you.

I recently took my PC apart and cleaned it out of dust (it gets very dusty in my room and a 2400RPM intake fan doesn't help). It worked fine at first, then yesterday I found that my PC crashes when a 3D game is running.

It first happened on Multi Theft Auto San Andreas when I was going to test out a new server. I was playing for a matter of a minute before my pair of screens went blank and the familiar repetitive sound when a PC crashes started blaring at me. I restarted my PC using the reset button, as keys were unresponsive.

It booted up without any problems and it loaded up Opera fine. I can use it extensively for hours running normal things such as internet browsers and windowed programs, but as soon as anything 3D is loaded my PC crashes.

Another instance was when I was taking off in FSX, my PC crashed with the same symptoms as the MTA incident.

Its been happening on all of my games that are full 3D, TES:V Skyrim, GTA IV, GTA VC, GTA SA, MTA SA, TF2 and FSX.

Anyone know whats up?

I'm gonna run a system restore and see if it works. I've also got a spare EN7300GE lying around so I can substitute my 285 for that to check if its the graphics card.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600 3.4GHz
RAM: ASint 8GB PC3-10070 1333MHz
HDD: 2TB WD Caviar Green
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Motherboard: Foxconn H61MXV
PSU: Alpine 600W (Just a cheap one until I can get one of higher quality)

A:Crashes whilst playing any form of 3D game

first open up your case and make sure that all connections are seated properly
Take out your Graphics Card and reseat it and connect power to it

Also the power supply you are using is a very poor quality
we recommend XFX, seasonic, and corsair 80+ power supplies
atleast 650W
