BSOD While playing games, Please Help

Q: BSOD While playing games, Please Help

Hello I have been getting blue screen of death for some time now. I don't know what the problem is and all my drivers are up to date (that I am able to find).

These BSOD mostly happen while playing GTA 4 and sometimes Skyrim but I am not sure with other games. This will mostly happen after about 1-2 hours of playing GTA 4.

I re installed windows 7 but I did save most of my files like music and stuff. I thought this would fix the problem but it didn't.

Here is what BlueScreenView says is causing the problem.

To make it easier to see what is causing it, here are the two files it shows.


It does not show where these two files are located at or a description of it.

Please help because this is getting very annoying.

Here is my computer Specs:

i5-2500k overclocked at 4ghz

8gb RAM
1tb HDD

If anyone can explain how to fix this please be specific because it can be hard for me to follow at times. Something like a step by step process

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.

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!

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 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

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:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

A:BSOD after playing games + Random BSOD on startup


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

Fill in your specs and the make of the laptop
Click on User CP on the top right of this page
Click on Edit System Spec

NOTE: DM log collector seem to be getting stuck when collecting msinfo32.nfo, so the attached file can be incomplete. Please let me know if it can take longer than 10 minutes to collect this data so i will run the program again.

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.

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)

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 -

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.

I was playing Skyrim and then I hit Esc to go do something and then when I came back to my PC and sat down to play again it BSOD. Its BSOD before but I fixed it by unistalling Windows 7 and reinstalling it. Its been almost a year with out a BSOD. Now its BSODing randomly and sometimes one after another within 2-20min. I replaced my RAM in the past and that helped and also my Graphics card in the past. Im thinking it might be my graphics card. I noticed they stopped making it recently so maybe they stopped with updates too. I don't know. Just want to get my PC running smooth again.

A:BSOD- Whenever i am playing games..

Does anyone experience the same problem or did experience the same problem and solved it?

Hey, this is my first post so bare with me :P.

I am getting some BSOD when playing games. Somtimes it will happen, sometimes it won't. If it is going to happen then it will usually happen within 10 minutes of starting the game. It also seems that a simple reboot (rebooting after the BSOD) is not sufficient. I have to cut the power via the power switch on the psu.

I have read some minidumps but with my limited knowledge I don't really know what I am looking at. All i can see from these that might be of some use is;

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiPageFault+260 )

READ_ADDRESS: GetPointerFromAddress: unable to read from fffff80002af40e0

I can post the whole minidump here if required.

Any help would be much appreciated as its driving me nuts!


Edit: Added mini dumps in the hope that someone will take a look. Theres 7 minidumps in the zip folder

A:BSOD When playing games

Hi and welcome to 7F.

I only read the latest two files, but it's enough for me to recommend that you update your driver for your video card to the latest from NVIDIA's website.

I see there are two separate games that crashed, and although it could be due to numerous reasons, updating your video card driver is an excellent start.

It's good practice to update all drivers possible, so here are your motherboard ones.

And my first post advice would not be complete without suggesting a bios update as well.

Make these changes if necessary, and let us know how it goes.

You could also look into setting the precise voltage and timings on your motherboard recommended for your particular model of ram, from ram maker's site.

Hi there!

So there. Since some time ago, when I game, my computer will completely freeze up. There's absolutely nothing I can do, and I have to hard reboot my computer. This time, after a freeze in Diablo 3 (It's practically unplayable at this point, I freeze after 5-10 minutes), I waited a while before rebooting and had this message after I did:

So this is a BSoD without me ever getting the blue screen or something? Not sure how this works, but oh well. With this error, I got a dump. So! Here's hoping one of you guys are able to see what the issue can be. I've attached the ZIP with the information.

Thanks a lot!

I've been getting BSODs since upgrading to Win8 last year but after a while I decided to format my HDD and get back to Win7 hopping it would help with the blue screens. It didn't.

It only seems to happen when I play relatively demanding games after 1 hour or so... So, Dota 2, CS:GO and even WoW, and yet I can play Hearthstone for hours with no problem. Does that mean it's a memory problem?

If any further step is required to make your life easier, please ask and I will do/give anything needed!

Its not really just BSOD I guess BSOD is a end result of the crashes I keep getting its the all too well known problem with : display driver xxx stopped responding and has recovered. I've been fighting with this problem ever since I got my new graphic card ( detailed specs later ) from time to time when I play a 3d game (doesnt have to be with really intensive graphics) the screen goes black for a couple of seconds then recovers ( unfortunately in some games it does not recover ) multiple flickers like this usually result in a BSOD. The worst thing is that its completely unpredictable and some of the newest graphic intensive games for example might not get the crash at all while others get it multiple times in a row same with some older titles ... Now theres a lot to say so I apologize for the quite chaotic post build :P Lets start with what Ive tried in order to fix or find out whats wrong:

- I tried many different NVIDIA drivers very old ones like 175 and the newest one currently 295 I think ? also many in between those 2 with no real results what sometimes seemed like a fix was just the randomness factor,

- I tried various different settings changes to the NVIDIA control panel which I found on the internet as theres tons of people having similar problem but theres just as many fixes,

- I bought a new PSU a 600W Thermaltake TR2 Bronze which supplies more than enough power,

- I tried different cords with no real result,

- I checked for viruses and I formatted and instal... Read more

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

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.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more

Hi everyone! So for the past month i have been experiencing BSOD very often(2-3 times a day) and i have no clue why is that. Its happening either while i am playing games or if i have multiple tabs open on the browser.

I was getting a bit frustrated since i don't know what is causing it and started cleaning my computer from viruses and updating all of my drivers. Still no luck with that so i came here for some help. It also seems to be limiting my internet performance and that is quite worrying too.

My system after the BSOD always starts with the message "Windows recovered from an unexpected shut down" when i boot up. This is the error message:

Since recently I've been having a couple of BSOD during games, 2 times once I was playing PlanetSide 2 (different days), once during Dishonored, and once during a browser game. It crashes at random intervals, PlanetSide 2 once crashed after 1 hour and 20 minutes, once after 20 minutes. Dishonored crashed after 3 hours or something like that...

I've recently bought a new video card (GTX 770). But when I installed it and its drivers, everything worked like a charm, it never gave a BSOD, I installed it around 3 weeks back and the BSOD have been starting to show up since last week.

It's very wierd and I can't seem to find the issue here. I'm using nVidia GeForce Experience to auto-update the videocard drivers. I've added the .zip file from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe.

Thanks in advance

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.

Lately my computer has been producing BSOD's while playing games (error 0x000000d1 if i'm not mistaken). I can watch series (both HD and non-HD) for days straight, but when I play a game like Cod4 or Guitar Hero, I usually get a BSOD after about 30-60 minutes. Also, my CPU fan is failing right now, while it did work when I booted up my PC, which probably means it has something to do with my CPU (overheating?). I already switched my GTX 460 graphics card with an old GTX 280 graphics card, but that didnt fix the problem which means it probably isnt my GPU. The Gamecube/wii emulator Dolphin gave me a BSOD after 2 minutes of playing, and as far as I know dolphin is way more intensive than guitar hero or cod 4 because its an emulator. I also converted a 15-20 minute video with a video converter so I could watch it on my phone, which didnt give me a BSOD. Hot CPU tester pro 4 though did give me a BsoD after 30 minutes while running the CPU burn-in tool (running on 1 thread, i couldnt select more threads because i used the lite version instead of the full paid program).

The SF diagnostics tool dumps are inserted as an attachment.

any help would be grateful.

i have updated my graphic and sound drivers which are essentials.

my graphic card is gtx 460 se palit and required 2 six pins power plug need to be attached to the card..

and my psu is coolermaster gx750 sli

so this suggests my gup is not the culprit and i have checked my ram with memtest and there was no problem with that also so what u guys think of my problem t might be psu.my computer is running stable with no bsod while idle only when playing games bsod occurs..

Hello all, my son recently ordered a pc from Cyberpower PC (all his friends have them and haven't had problems). Anyways, a little background is in order. We first got the PC about 2 months ago, had it running for about 24 hours (straight) when we experienced our first of many BSODs. They started pointing towards drivers or memory. ran the windows mem test and didn't find anything, so we gave memtest86 a whirl and it too found nothing. Sent the pc back, they changed all 16 gigs of RAM and sent it back. Guess what...still happened...tech support said try taking out the video card and run the games with the onboard video. Still got the BSOD. Back again it goes and they replace the motherboard and ship it back. Works for a few days then we get yet another BSOD...this time I had my son leave it up for me to research. The techs had a beta version of NVIDIA drivers installed. I uninstall them and go with the most recent released drivers (non beta). These BSOD happen mostly when he plays League of Legends, or Saints Row 4. World of Tanks seems to run ok, along with Diablo 3.
My most recent tech support call suggestion is to run it yet again without the vid card (tech guy seems to think vid card memory might be the culprit).

If I did it correctly I attached the Blue screen view txt file.

I'm new here, so please bear with me. I am getting a myriad of BSODs, all while playing Borderlands and Left for Dead (maybe it happens with other games too, but I haven't noticed it yet). What is the process for getting help? I have several DMP files that I can post. Here they are in a zip file.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

A:BSOD while playing games -- please help!

Posting the DMP files is sufficient.

Most of these occur while the OS DirectX kernel is attempting to work with memory buffers supplied by the nvidia video driver. In general, that'll come down to one of:

1) Overclocking or undercooling - make sure your machine is not subjected to either.
2) Bugs in the nvidia driver.
3) Unobvious interference from another driver which is mangling the relevant data.
4) A hardware defect, most likely in the video card itself.

Is the machine overclocked?

I've been getting these BSODs just recently when I play CS GO and WoW. It won't BSOD when I watch anime for like 6 hours or if I just leave it on or play league of legends. I thought it was a driver issue at first since I updated to the latest Nvidia Beta driver but I switched back to the latest non-beta driver and it BSOD'd again. Then I thought it might be BIOS since I changed some USB settings in BIOS in order to fix my Razer Ouroboros that didn't work sometimes...
At random times when I play CS GO it'd just turn into a black screen, sometimes the sound will still work, but it usually dies after a few seconds. Sometimes the screens turn red or other colors o.o. There was once where it fixed itself and started working again, not sure how...
I tried to monitor the CPU's temperature and ran some HDD tests, still not sure what the problem is.
Oh, should probably mention that I've been too lazy to put new thermal paste on the CPU, it's been like.. 8 months? But the temperature doesn't go that high so Idk if it's an overheating issue o.O
Anyways, here's the stuff.
Thanks guys

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

Hi, I'm getting a DPC Watchdog Violation error when playing DOTA 2, as well as this it also crashes and BSODs on Kerbal Space Program, I used to get infrequent BSODs related to nvlddmkm.sys error but now this happens at the beginning of every game making it completely unplayable, if you need any more details I'll be happy to provide them, thanks.

EDIT: Tested many games, the graphics crashes within 5 minutes of opening the games, then there is a 30 second delay before it goes to BSOD

A:BSOD when playing games

Hi DoctorFlash,

Welcome to the 10forums.

nvlddmkm.sys is the Nvidia Video driver.
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Please try updating your BIOS.

Let me know how it goes

Hi, i've been constantly getting the same BSOD only while playing games. Usually getting it after 40 minutes. I recently reinstalled windows 7 to try fix it but to no avail so i'm guessing it's a hardware problem. I've attached the DMP file + the NT6 thingy. I've really got no clue as to why this happens but any help will be awesome.
