BSoD when playing games

Q: BSoD when playing games

I've been having this problem a lot, and I've tried a lot to fix it. From updating all drivers I possibly could, to installing the latest version of my motherboard, and to reinstalling Windows 7. During playing certain games, my computer just loves to BSoD on them, and it's always the same error, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I'm getting annoyed at trying to fix this without completing anything, so I hope that the people of this forum are able to help me.
Games that are being effected:
Far Cry 3 (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Probably some other ones that I may have forgotten, recovering from a sickness so my mind isn't exactly running that well either heh.

Just got a new update from my Graphics Driver so I'll be installing that.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

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

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005

ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
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.

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! 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.

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

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!

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

Your dumps don't have a probable cause, keep blaming windows files (Not true causes)

Since everything was fine with the laptop before the power failure, your best bet would be to dismantle and reconnect all the hardware components (if you're good with it) and do a fresh install of windows on your laptop

BSOD #1: It started at around January 15th - basically when i shoot down the system, theres a suprisingly short windows update. Then whenever i boot the PC and it starts to configure the update, bluescreen pops up with an error code 0x0000007E and i have to use system recovery to succesfully run the system.

BSOD #2: Ive never fixed it and it occures since i bought the PC. When i play games (and very rarely when using internet browser) my PC is getting random freezes, display driver errors, monitor is turning off and of course sometimes BSODs happen. Ive tried several different drivers, memory/hdd tests, temperatures, stress tests, 2 different monitors and GPUs, and plugging out/in hardware inside the PC case then i gave up. So basically all the BSODs listed in a ZIP file until January 15th are related to this problem.

A:BSOD When playing games random Bsod messages

No Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 140 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Multiple Card Reader USB Device USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_MULTIPLE&PROD_CARD__READER&REV_1.00\058F63666438&0 This device is disabled.

Please enable the device and then ensure that it's drivers are fully updated to the latest, Win8.1 compatible version. Then feel free to disable it again if you'd like.

Hi Aviraj & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-
This is a very common bugcheck. Usually the exception address pinpoints the driver/function that caused the problem.
Let's check the stack -

7: kd> knL

03 ffffd002`01ea7be0 00000000`00000000 nt!KiStartSystemThread+0x16

So, we see that the system was waiting to get a lock on a resource but sadly it was not fulfilled and hence the system crashed . Sadly, the dump file failed to capture the culprit in this case.

Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system -

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

Recently I have been getting BSODs while playing games on my computer, but not during normal use. Most recently it has been the game Roguelands.

I originally thought it might be a memory problem, so I ran memtest for around 10 passes. Memtest did not turn up with anything, so I updated my graphics drivers to see if that was it. However, I am still getting BSODs while playing games. Any help would be appreciated

Hey everybody,

I'm hoping you can help me out with this one:
Like three weeks ago I bought a new pc (all seperated components) and since the moment I start playing games, the games crash or get me a blue screen. This usually happens when I played the game a while, or when I give the pc actions to follow (like with Need for Speed, when I want to go to another race or load cars etc). This happens with all games I play. Sometimes I get a blue screen, last time it had the code: 0x1000008e KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

I was hoping you could help me out what to do.. I updated all the drivers, reinstalled windows, reinstalled the games, BIOS update, sound card update, use legal games etc etc. I attached the dump file from the last blue screen I had (all the others are deleted because I just recently reinstalled windows) Hopefully you can help me further..

Thanks a lot

Hey all,

I would sincerely appreciate it if you could help me with the following problem:

Only 2 months ago I got a newly built pc (the information you can find in the dxdiag report). From the beginning, my pc started doing strange things while playing games. Almost every time I play a game, it crashes at random times and tells me the game doesn't respond anymore and the game exits. I tried to resolve this problem with lots of things, most important things include: updated my video card drivers, updated my motherboard drivers, clean install of windows 7 home premium, clean install of all the games. At the end I even went to the store the video card was bought and although they couldn't find a problem, I got a new video card but unfortunately after a couple of days of great gaming, the games started crashing again. BSOD only appear once in a while, but they get me worried even more. I also checked the CPU and GPU temperatures, they're both fine, never reaching above 60 degrees celsius. I did a 3D vantage Benchmark test, it got me a score of P9093, not sure what it exactly means but I think it's OK for the system I have.

So my question would be.. what could possible cause these BSOD's and crashes? It happens to all games I played till now, i.e. Assassin's Creed I and II, Tomb Raider Underworld, Need For Speed Undercover and Pro Street, Prince of Persia games.

I attached the dxdiag report.

Hi everyone,

I have recently been getting some bsod randomly playing different games. Once playing super meat boy and once playing Defiance so extremely different games. I've added some things to my computer and tried to read the minidump but I can't seem to get the Windbg to show me the dump and is giving me constant symbol issues even though I have directed it to the place to download them and all. I have attached the mini dump below for the last two I have received since I changed over some hardware and such.

I have also overclocked recently but the voltage and temps have been completely stable.

Let me straightly get into the point here. I have been getting random BSODs only during gaming and that too with the error code 1000007e for most of the time. The BSODs are usually caused by dxgkrnl.sys or nvlddmkm.sys or dxgmm1.sys or ntoskrnl.sys.

Yesterday i was playing Battlefield 4 for 2 hours without any crashes. I didn't got BSODs. Then after beating the game, i have decided to play GTA 4 and installed it. (I haven't installed any patch though). Alongside i downloaded SIMS 4 from Origin and was playing it. Nothing happened. And today, when i launched GTA 4, i got BSOD within 5 minutes. I thought it was just GTA 4's problem and thus i have decided to test it with Sims 4 and i got the same BSOD within 30 minutes. I knew something was wrong here. I just don't get it. Yesterday my PC was fine and after installing GTA 4, BOOM! BLUE SCREEN! Out of nowhere.

I know it's definitely not a hardware problem. They don't die out suddenly. And weird that i got this BSOD only after installing these two games. I thought ORIGIN and SIMS 4 was the culprit here. So i uninstalled it and the problem still remains. I haven't uninstalled GTA 4 though.

Things i tried:
-Tried different versions of nvidia drivers by using clean installation in safe mode. I uses driver sweeper for this.
-Ran driver verifier and flushed out that '000.fcl' was causing BSOD on startup and thus i have uninstalled cyberlink Power DVD. But the problem still remains
-Check my HDD for bad sectors. No errors ... Read more

A:BSOD when playing games

Getting two years out of a Laptop that you use for gaming is good going, they usually succumb to heat before then.
Post a screen shot of the temps and voltages using HWMonitor, or a similar software, so we can see how it's going, preferably a before and after gaming screenshot if you can.

The latest dumpfile flagged Easyanticheat.sys.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

As the driver is from 8 jan 2016 it might be a corrupt driver installation. Uninstall and reinstall.
Or remove this program and see if it stops the BSOD.

It seems to only happen when I'm putting a load on the GPU by playing games. Anyone have any suggestions. Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD only when playing games.

The very first thing you should do is to is to completely uninstall your video driver and update to the latest one.
Nvidia drivers : http://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in
ATI driver : http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx
If it didn't help open the computer case and clean any dirt with a vacuum cleaner. Also verify your video card's fan is working flawlessly while powering on. Also verify if there is any bad cap in your mother board and graphics card.
If the above steps didn't help we may need to check RAM for defects and analyze BSOD dumb for possible software clashes.

First of all, first time posting a thread here so don't judge me all to harshly if I do something incorrect.

I am getting BSOD's while playing several different games such as Sleeping dogs, SMITE and War Thunder. Also has started to happen while I am using ACDSee.

The message I get when seeing the BSOD is "STOP: 0x00000124 (0x000000000000000,0xFFFFFA800794E024,0X00000000B6004000,0X00000000F4000175)

I have earlier been able to receive dumps(accidentally deleted these) but in the last week my computer no longer saves the dumps for some reason. I have followed some guides as to manually set the page file but to no avail.

(I have a vague memory of that ntoskrnl.exe was to blame in the last minidump which i saw)

I would appreciate any and all answers you give me!

A:BSOD when playing several games

Hello Qyratar, Welcome to SF

Afraid there is nothing specific we can tell you without any dump files other than the fact that 0x124 = WHEA uncorrectable error = hardware issue BSOD Index

Have a look at this thread Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
As you said it happens when gaming then its likely to be related to GFX drivers/temperatures so i would start there

Any further crashes then post back the new dump files

I am getting BSOD errors on occasion, as far as I can tell only when playing games.
I was having this happen a few months ago and was going to post, but it stopped suddenly - until yesterday! Now I've had another BSOD yesterday & today. Yesterday happened while playing Skyrim. Today happened while playing Age of Empires Online. I have previously tried updating my graphics drivers - I have *not* done so recently before these past two days, when the crashes started again.

One thing to note: It seems very random.. I can play a game for hours on end, and have no problems..

I tried to follow the guidelines for posting, I hope it is all correct.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

tl;dr - BSOD while playing games. Can play for hours without it happening. Cannot reliably reproduce. Has not happened outside of a game. Thanks for your help!

A:BSOD while playing various games

You appear to be running a DELL OEM on a retail motherboard, which is not possible unless it employs a hackers activation bypass. There is no point troubleshooting this until we can be sure the problems aren't caused by the counterfeit installation.

My recommendation is to purchase a genuine Windows 7, then format and reinstall Windows 7.
