BSOD and freezing while playing video games

Q: BSOD and freezing while playing video games

So the backstory:

I played 7 Days to Die last weekend and had an odd freeze where everything locked up and the monitor suddenly looked like this:

http://i.imgur.com/C9c5BGS.jpg

I figured maybe it was an issue of graphics card drivers needing to be updated so the next day I went ahead and updated my drivers. Later that day 7 Days to Die crashed again, the same way. Then later World of Warcraft did. At that point I figured something must be pretty wrong, as I'd been playing WoW on and off for weeks and never had any problems.

I tried dusting out the case, worrying that it was a heat issue. Eventually during one of the restarts/freezes I got to the point where the tower would boot up but the monitor stayed in Power Saver mode. After flashing the BIOS and removing the graphics card, I was able to get back into Windows. I figured maybe my graphics card was on its way out, but it couldn't hurt to format the SSD I keep Windows on and start clean before I put a new card in. So I did that, but held off on putting the card in right away as it took forever to get all the Windows Updates handled, and eventually I ended up installing Windows 10 as there were so many problems with Windows 7.

Fast forward to now where I still haven't installed a new graphics card, as when I tried to test my system out by running some games (Rocket League, which completely freezes up on the title screen; Beseige, which plays fine but within 5-10 minutes causes a BSOD of System_Service_Exception) it didn't end well. So now I'm here, hoping someone can help get my system back to gaming like it was built for instead of this shallow, empty existence.

So far the steps I've taken are:
Dusted out the case/components.Removed the suspected issue (dead or dying graphics card).Formatted the SSD to get a clean Windows install.Ran 8 passes of MemTest with 0 errors.

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.

Hi. Thank you for your time and expertise
For a while now I've had mostly BSOD 0x00000124 appearing on my screen when watching online videos(except YouTube) or whenever I played PC games on maximum video settings.
I decided to re-install Windows, assuming that software is the problem. Though after that not only did the BSOD stay, but also my computer started freezing randomly(on start-up, while installing updates, browsing the internet).
Also I installed Zorin OS 6. After a few minutes of browsing the internet(using Chrome) it also froze.
I tried running MemTest86+(using a CD) but after about 10 min. the computer screen shuts down on its own.
What should I do?

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I've uploaded my dump files.

Thank you.

I'm at my wits end. A few months ago I started having issues where my computer would freeze hard, mouse frozen, Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing and the sound playing the last second of sound in extreme slow-mo that loops after about 10 seconds. Nothing can be done beside hard power off and restart.

This only happens when I am watching a video or playing a game. I just got a brand new GeForce GT 440 to test if that was the issue, and it still locks up.

Some quirks I've found. YouTube is usually okay. Demo movies in Steam, or on PCGamer.com or often in video ads cause the lock up.

If ITunes is open it locks up almost instantly and basically every single time I try to watch the weather for whotv.com.

In games it can run for a long time or a short time, it can be a graphic intensive game, or not. It can run for 10 hours straight on Skyrim on max settings, then I load Dungeon Keeper from GOG.com and locks up in 60 seconds. And vice versa for that matter.

I am starting to think it has something to do with sound. But I am unsure how to test this without shutting the sound off completely and forever (which is not something I want to do) or shelling out money for a sound card (which is not something I want to do).

I have wiped and reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit twice. Still same issues. I don't think it is a software issue, but possibly a driver issue.

my computer gets bluescreen randomly when playing. it happens in almost every game, even games like TES: oblivion crashes. many games like GTAsan andreas just freezes and stays that way for infinte time or until I shut down the computer. the computer can handle games like skyrim without lagging at all. but instead this happens. I think it be my computer overheating or something.

any help for me?
 

A:BSOD and freezing while playing games

Here is a simple test to determine if it is indeed a heat issue. Open your side panel and remove it. Place a small fan and on low setting have it blow into your system. Now play the games that cause your issue. What are the results?

Also, if there is dust build up then clean the dust out using a can of condensed air. Spray the air in burst no closer than 6 inches. DO NOT TURN THE CAN OVER. Keep it upright. Clean your cpu and especially your video card fan.

* Keep us updated.

Hello

This problem started a year ago with my old configuration, it started just once a day or just once a week... after a few months it was every day at least 3 or 4 times.
it mainly occured while i was watching a movie or playing a game, doesnt matter what game or what movie i was watching, ive tried to replace the RAM memory, run memory tests basicly everything i could do, even asked some local IT guys i knew, they didnt know what caused it... after a while i became really frustrated about it and i decided to upgrade my computer to my current configuration. after i upgraded my computer the problem was gone... till now! * i didn't bought a new HDD*
a few days ago Battlefield 3 was released, and after a few days of playing it the problem came back, while in game my computer crashed again randomly..! the game freezes, the only sound you hear is the last mili second of what sound it was playing in-game.

So I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 , 10 was for free so why not. It was okay for weeks and i went on a holiday for 3 weeks. When i came back and plugged my PC back in it started to crash to BSOD or it just totally shuts off and restarts. I am also having these freezing problems which force me to manually turn off my PC ( which i know isn't the best for the PC) . Most of the time the crashing happens when Im playing games like Fallout 4,Dead by Daylight. I didn't notice any problems when being in a program like Photoshop CC . I tried programs that find system problems , scanned my hard disk and Ram too , no problems there , tried changing my power supply if its getting enough power . No fixes.

I recently built a computer for someone, with relevant specs as follows:

Gigabyte SKT-1155 PA65-UD3-B3
Intel 2500K
Komputerbay 1333Mhz PC3 10600 / PC3 10666 8-8-8-24 1.5v 8 GB KIT
ASUS GTX 560

Ever since I delivered it to him, it's been either freezing (often with popping from his headphones) indefinitely or producing BSODs. These can be as often as a couple of times a day.

Generally the crashes occur when he is gaming or watching Youtube videos, but sometimes they also occur upon restarting the computer immediately after a crash.

Since we both have little time on our hands, it's become a game of trying to troubleshoot the computer remotely, thus far with limited success. I've tried replacing the memory as I thought this might have been the issue, but that didn't help.

I would be immensely grateful if somebody could have a look at the contents of his MiniDump folder, as having tried to interpret them myself I haven't got very far.

NOTE:If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.





Run FurMark to test the display card for artifacts and temperature issues.

Run Display card memory tests to check the display card for memory problems.

Run all Basic tests with SeaTools: S.M.A.R.T. Check, Short Drive Self Test, Drive Information, Short Generic, and Long Generic. Run the tests for all HDDs.SeaTools for Windows

SeaTools for DOS
Run Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.

Run Prime95 to test your CPU, RAM modules, and general hardware.



I also recommend you update/replace/remove the following drivers:

I've built a custom computer almost a year ago and have been having problems with it eversince. At first random crashes and BSOD were bearable and i didn't make much of them. 5 months ago it finally became unbearable and i wasn't able to play %90 of my video games. They all crashed after 5 minutes, if the computer didn't reboot because of a BSOD first. There were a couple of times where these didn't happen at all and because of this inconsistency i was unable to reproduce this problem when i brought my pc to a computer engineer. Even if they saw what the problem was, no one could tell me what caused it. Needless to say, i have formatted my hard drives and did multiple clean installs since and before then, to no avail.

A month ago with one of my friends we thought we solved the problem after we disabled my motherboard's wi-fi go option and none of the stress tests came back with a BSOD (they didn't last 10 mins before). But after a week the same problem came back and i have been trying to deal with it eversince.

To be more brief:
-Video Games crash to desktop most times.
-Every 4 or 5 crash where i'm playing video games is replaced by a BSOD instead.
-It has given me BSODs a couple of times when i'm not playing a video game but it's very, very rare.

-Complete clean installs on multiple different internal HDDs.
-Different versions of Windows 7 and even Windows 8.

So I believe this problem started for me on Sunday. I had posted another problem in another thread and had thought this problem had been fixed for good. but sadly not. For some strange reason whenever I play this game called (League of Legends) my computer will crash and give me the BSOD! It does not happen automatically and not even all the time. When we had first thought this problem to be solved it allowed me to play 3 games before it crashed. Then it crashed when I attempted to load a youtube video. Right now it is allowing me to view youtube videos fine.
I am not sure exactly what the problem is. Here are the .dmp files.

Hello,

How are the temps and voltage readings? If the PC is currently overclocked please reset back to defaults for testing purposes

Boot into the BIOS and post the temp and voltage readings. Usually Under Hardware Monitor,PC Health Status, or similar.

Once you have this info Install HWMonitor and take a screenshot of the program at idle and under load.

The one attached dump seem to indicate a problem with the processor that could be caused by heat or voltaage, or a bad CPU.

So I've been having bsod problems for the past month or so and they seem to always happen when I'm playing games, mainly Ark:Survival evolved and Overwatch. It doesn't happen after a few minutes or anything but after a long gaming session like 5-8 hours it would bsod. Here is my dm log.

Hi, i have been getting blue screens only while playing video games after about 20-40 min. I have been able to stop them, but to do so i have to set up a huge fan next to my computer.

So i assumed the problem was from overheating. However, i recorded the temperatures with speed fan.

These were the highest temperatures i noticed while playing games just before they give me a BSOD.

GPU:77C
Temp 1:82C
Temp 2:49C
Temp 3:-128C
HDO: 40C
Core:74C

Now i don't know very much about computers but those temperatures dont seem very high for running high graphics video games.

I also wrote down the error on the blue screen.
STOP: 0x0000001E (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

Any help would be greatly appreciated as the fan i have to use is very loud and big.

Oh and im running windows 7 64 bit.
I tried to upload the dump files but im a noob. Whenever i try to upload the file it keeps giving me an invalid file error. Again any help at all will be super appreciated as ive been dealing with this problem for a long time.

Hello all and thank you in advance for anything you can do to help me. I've been working on my laptop for a few weeks now because I've been dealing with a lot of BSOD's lately. I've had my laptop for just over a year and this last month has taken a turn for the worse. For the first 6months I had the laptop there were one or two BSOD's I experienced, but they were very infrequent. Over the last month I've been using my laptop more and I've had many blue screens while watching videos, playing games, and just using the internet. I'm a pretty light user and don't have a lot of stuff installed. I've gone through the basics and run memtest, scanned for viruses, etc. I'm just not sure what more I should do now.
Sorry for the long post and thank you very much in advance!

A:Spontaneous (various) BSOD's playing video and games

Cleaned my post up a bit.

ntoskrnl.exe comes up a lot from bluescreenview. I've reinstalled my nvidia driver several times over the last few weeks and so I don't think it is directly the problem but perhaps I'm wrong?

Hi, everyone. Just when I thought my BSOD issues from last year were solved, they've seemed to pop up again. This time, I'm mainly experiencing issues with "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and ntoskrnl.exe. I'm hoping that it's a software error like a driver rather than a hardware one. These BSODs mainly occur after a lengthy amount of time streaming videos and playing computer games.

I'll be sure to stress test my CPU, RAM, and GPU soon. For now, attached are my SF Diagnostic files. Thank you in advance.

A:BSOD After Video Streaming and Playing Games

Normally with these dumps I would say a system driver is using wrong pointers but because it's so consistent I think otherwise.


Code:
BugCheck A, {3, 2, 0, fffff800032d7785}
Given that the address being referenced was 3 it's pretty clear that it's invalid memory, I believe the first accessible address which is used for user mode at boot is 0x10000 although I might be slightly off with that one.

Again another IP misalignment...


Code:
BugCheck D1, {1, 2, 0, fffff88001887e85}
Again an invalid memory address was referenced.


Code:
BugCheck 9C, {0, fffff88002f6db70, 0, 0}

Code:
2: kd> !mca fffff88002f6db70
Machine Check feature not present
CP F/M/S Manufacturer MHz PRCB Signature MSR 8B Signature Features
2 6,58,9 GenuineIntel 3400 0000001200000000 21193ffe
On X64 systems to use the !mca command I believe I need to acquire private HAL symbols which I'm struggling to find at this moment in time if they're available to the public.

A machine check exception from my experience is quite rare as it's not common for one to be called if its bad RAM.
Nevertheless I think its best we test RAM first.

My friend gave me his PC because he was tired of dealing with BSOD, but said sometimes it didn't happen for 1week+ and that it was rather inconsistent with the timing (sometimes multiple BSOD daily, sometimes 0, etc.)

He couldn't be bothered to fix it, and I have now had my first BSOD on it after a few hours.

I did some searching around and tried running a memtest overnight which came back with no errors after 8~ run-throughs over 8hours.

These are the two printouts from bluescreenview. I have already remedied the atikmdag.sys BSOD according to a guide I found (not sure if it worked yet obviously due to inconsistency of the bluescreens)

Hi
 
Did you try updating the display driver ? . If not uninstall the Nvidia driver and components from "control Panel-->Programs" and install the latest one. Remember to remove Nvidia components like updater, PhysX , Nview etc first. Then remove the Nvidia display driver (it should be the last one) . You can download the latest driver from the below link.
 
http://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in
 
If the issue still remains, remove the graphic card and run the system using on board VGA (if there is one). You can play some high quality videos continuously to test the stability.

I have posted the same problem in another forum. BSOD Window 7 Laptop - Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support
I seem to have a lot of different BSODs, it could be random but most of the time it occurs when I'm running a game or video. Nowadays, videos are fine, it's only games. The game is called osu! I used to run it DirectX now running OpenGL with 60 FPS. I found that when my fan or hard drive (can't tell because they are close together I am using laptop) makes some noise, it is hinting that a BSOD is coming soon. And when I shut down my laptop for a while, it lets me play the game longer when I open it. (maybe about 10 minute)

Hi there,

Ever since last friday I have been getting BSOD. My occured while playing lotro (Lord of the rings online, mmo) and while playing windowd I tried to play a youtube video. Which has never given me any problems before. Also msn and some other firefox tabs were open.
Then saturday and sunday more BSOD came in. During browsing, during doing nothing, on the windows inlog screen. I can't really put my finger on it. Putting load on the system doesn't trigger it, nor does firefox, lotro, seems a bit random.
Only software stuff that changed since friday is a java update, daily Avira anti virus definitions update and I installed guild wars 2.

I tried to look at the bluescreens logs myself, but I really have no clue what I'm looking at, so if you could check for me that would be awesome.

I've stress-tested my CPU and my GPU everything is ok.
I've tested my RAM with memtest86 everythings is fine(actually, there were some errors with ver4, but after i made default settings in BIOS everything works fine. And memtest 5 didn't found any errors even before the default reset.)

And today my PC gaved me BSOD while idle.

Your ATI video card driver is named in two of them, as well as a third one that can indicate a general drive fault. Try updating the drivers for your video card and see if that fixes the issue.

OK, I've been lurking this board for 3 months searching for answer behind my BSOD. First of all, my computer did have BSOD problem since I've tried to add 2 GB of RAM on my Windows XP SP 3 on October 2011. BSOD came out after playing a game for 6-30 minutes (or game application crashed) or viewing a video (random occurence). After getting no results of all to cure BSOD, I decided to change my OS to Windows 7 and I still got this problem. I've tried to bring my CPU to service center with no luck at all.

Here, I attached my recent dump and perfmon report with it. Although a few hours before I post this thread, I cleaned earlier dumps with CCleaner. I'll be sure to attach new dump and report if another BSOD occurs. And let me know if my attached files get corrupted or cannot be read.

Oh yeah, another thing, my antivirus scanner detected BSOD & System File Collection app as a virus, so I ignored it.

So my computer spec is :

Windows 7 x86 Ultimate
Intel Core2Duo CPU E4600 @ 2.40 Ghz
2 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE

Thank you for all your attention

SP1 isn't installed (you only have 2 updates total), please do the following:





Quote:
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.

This problem started a few months ago when I was playing Guild Wars 2. They have some software that does certain math calculations and sends it to the cpu while playing which caused my computer to BSOD. Around the same time I installed beta video card drivers for amd and I have an AMD Radeon HD 6870 video card. I installed those drivers to fix certain things with Total War Rome 2 but they ended up making it worse and I reverted the drivers back. Now I have since stopped playing GW2 and when I play anything other than Counter Strike Source I get a BSOD anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours while playing. If I am using my computer for anything other than gaming I can have it running with no problems. I have already run multiple virus scans, malware scans, memtest86+, furmarker to test my video card and none of those showed anything wrong. I did run a program called prime95 to test out my cpu and using blend test I got the same BSOD within 3 minutes of running the program. When I ran the small FFT test I got a BSOD in a minute and the Large FFT got it in 30 seconds.
This is the results of those tests:

Welcome to SF .

This does sound like a hardware fault, but there things we can do to test things out.

I would start by monitoring the temperatures.
Download Speccy and upload a Screenshot of the summary tab.

What is the make an model of you PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:

It appears you have a mixture of RAM modules.
A mixture is always bad news and almost never ends well.

Hello,

I hope someone here is able to help. Basically I bought this computer in about January and for the first 3 months it was amazing (iBuypower from tigerdirect). After that it just started randomly crashing during World of Warcraft and then it started crashing more frequently with every game. The first time it crashed, I thought it was my new keyboard (Razer Lycosa) but then I re-installed Windows 7 two more times and it still crashed even with a different keyboard. I'm extremely frustrated and I've tried just about everything to my knowledge so I would appreciate it greatly if someone knew what the problem was and could help me out.

Here is my computer information:

OS - Windows 7 Home Premium
64-Bit
Windows 7 Home Premium
OEM Version
8 Months
2 Days, Reinstalled 2 Times
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
XFX Radeon 5570 1GB
?
650W

Thanks a lot. If there is any more information required please let me know.

A:BSOD - Windows Crashes from Playing Video Games

There are no memory dump files in the uploaded reports. Please do the following:

Quote:




Please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service . I recommend Windows Live SkyDrive - http://skydrive.live.com or another free, file-hosting service. Then post the link to it in your topic so that we can download it.

Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): http://www.carrona.org/setmini.html




There is one STOP 0xA error listed in the MSINFO32 report. While waiting for further BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these directions:

Quote:




Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Creat... Read more
