BSOD when playing games

Q: BSOD when playing games

Hey! Been having problems recently, getting BSOD whenever i play a game. It can come as quickly as 5 minutes into play time or several hours into a session, but it will happen eventually (played 6 different games, all with the same result). The basic set up is almost 3 years old now, September 2009 build date. New GPU per last October.

Setup info:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R, X58, Socket-1366
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 6GB CL9 (3x 2GB)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Classified 1280MB (This is the newest addition to my rig, installed October 2011)
HDD: WD VelociRaptor? 300GB SATA
Power supply: Corsair Powersupply HX 850W
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 1

DirectX (10) and so on is up to date, drivers have been updated on my GPU recently.

I'm really lost as to what is causing this, this started happening in June right after i installed a patch for Diablo 3 as well as a standard Windows update. Have had 1 BSOD before but it was a quick fix, concerning power supply issues.

Required reports are attached.

Any help that can be given is appreciated! Thanks, in advance :)

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.)

How are you temps while gaming? You can use HWMonitor to check

You should also update the driver for your wireless adapter.

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:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

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.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

Hi there,
I have uploaded my BSOD debug file below if anybody can look at it and tell me what's wrong that'd be great.
Thanks for the help

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
# Child-SP RetAddr Call Site
00 ffffd002`01ea7970 fffff801`ae339456 nt!KxWaitForLockOwnerShip+0x12

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 -

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.

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 Edit System Spec

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)

Before I get into anything too fancy, could you do me a favor and just reinstall your graphics driver here?
It's the faulting driver in 90% of these dumps.

Recently i bought a new pc (specs at the end). Ever since i got it i have a nasty problem - when i try to play something (no matter what) in 90% of the cases the pc either the display freezes , the sound lags for 5 secs and then keeps going or i get a Blue Screen which shows an error in nvs4_disp.dll or Stop x100000000. Of course the first thing i did was to return the pc to the vendor but after 3 days he didnt find a thing ( mainly because he wasnt so enthusiastic about fixing somebody's pc...)...

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

I recently downgraded drivers to 295.73 to solve the pink screen issue with my GTX 550ti, and my games began randomly closing with no error. It is only steam games that are graphics intensive. The main two I play are Skyrim and Far Cry 2. When I played Medieval II it never crashed on me. I also had no errors with a non steam game, Civilization 4. All games are played on max settings.

I grew tired of the constant closings with no error, so I just went back to the new 296.10 drivers. I began playing Skyrim again and within 5 minutes I get a BSOD.

My system specs:
Intel Core i3 2120 3.3GHz
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1333MHz
EVGA GTX 550ti FPB (I have OC'd it before but not in a while and I got no errors when it was. This is happening on stock speeds.)
1TB WD Caviar Black SATA III
ASRock H61M/U3S3
485 Watt PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I play all games at max settings on a 1920x1080 resolution connected via DVI.
Case is very cool, cannot be over heating. Temps always below 65c.

I just ran into a random restart while playing Dirt3. Display turned off and PC rebooted. No error reports after restart. Only Kernel-Power 41 error in Event Viewer. I just installed windows 8.1 and I thought this solved my problem with Windows 7 freezing very often randomly. Well now I don't get freezes but it's just restarts sometimes. Few people have told me that my Chieftec A80 750W could be the problem, but it's like 4 months old. It also did the restart on Windows 7 once I was playing GTA IV. Might the error report help if I find it?

My computer has run problem free since I built it. Its a little over a year old currently. Tonight on 2 different occasions I was playing a pc game (not a browser game) and had the BSOD happen to me. I believe it was 2 different BSOD errors but I don't really know anything about this sort of things and my searching online has turned up nothing. The first time the game I was trying to play just loaded as I got the BSOD and the second time I was in the middle of playing the game when the BSOD happened. The second time I missed the BSOD message because it happened when I was looking away talking to my son and turned just to see it disappear. Hopefully you all can assist me fix my issue I have attached the files that was mentioned in a different post. Here are the specs of my pc if you all need that as well.

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.

Upgraded to vista ultimate yesterday and everything is working fine except when I play games one of 3 things happen:

1) The system hangs with the sound going nuts with no blue screen.
2) The system hangs but the sound keeps going for a few seconds then goes nuts with no blue screen.
3) The system hangs the sound goes nuts and I get a blue screen.

Got my first BSOD about a hour and a half ago and been trying to read it and see what I can make out of it but nothing is working as I have no clue how to use the win debug tools. But, it did give me one thing.


But I need to know what is causing it. If it is hardware related then I need to go and replace it if needed (everything is under a extended warranty) or if i need to update some drivers.

Also for some reason or another I cant post it. WinRAR is giving me this error:

! C:\Users\Eric\Desktop\Mini092408-01.rar: Cannot open C:\Users\Eric\Desktop\Mini092408-01.dmp
! Access is denied.

I will go ahead and replicate it right now.

I also have to contact microsoft support tommrow so if you have anything that I should mention to them while i am talking with them at that time, let me know.

Hi Eric. . .

Download the attached zip file and extract the 2 files to your desktop.

Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll, the green status bar and finally the AutoRuns screen. When Autoruns is finished (look at bottom left of AutoRuns viewer - status = scanning...) it will disappear. This batch program will take 3 - 5 minutes to run.

It will copy any mini kernel dump files, dump the app and system logs, run AutoRuns, msinfo32 and dxdiag. The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support. Simply right-click on the new folder, select SendTo, select Compressed (Zipped) Folder. The result will be a zip file in your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support.zip.

Attach the zip file to your next post and I will take a look.

Any ? - please let me know.

Regards. . .

I've been getting consistent blue screens every couple hours while playing games since I built my computer.

It only seems to happen when I'm playing games. I get various different reasons, (bad_pool_caller, dxmmm1.sys or something, cant remember the others offhand)
I have a feeling its all related to my graphics card. I've updated the drivers, used driver sweeper to clear out any old ones, updated some outdated drivers manually.
But it just keeps happening. I've attached everything I need... I think, I haven't done anything like this before, so please tell me if there is any other information you need.

? OS - Windows 7 ? x64 ? What was original installed OS on system? Windows 7 ? Installed myself ? Age of system (hardware) 2 years or so ? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 1 week ago (reformat) ? CPU - AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2ghz ? Video Card - ATI Radeon HD 5770 ? MotherBoard - Asustek M4A77TD ? Power Supply - brand & wattage - OCZ 700w
Thanks a ton!

IMAGE_NAME: memory_corruption
Video card drivers need to updated
USB Audio Drivers need to be updated
you have memory corruption errors
Utorrent and AIM needs to uninstalled

Run Driver verifier after you update those drivers

Run memtest
1) Download memtest
Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool (.iso file)
2) Burn that on a CD, as a bootable image
3) Turn your computer off
4) Remove all but one RAM stick from your computer
5) Boot your computer with memtest cd
6) Run 8 ? 11 passes on that stick
7) Shutdown the PC
8) Take the tested RAM stick out and plug in the next RAM stick
9) Boot again with memtest CD and run 8 ? 11 passes
Repeat the process until all RAM sticks are tested individually
If time permitted, it is also good to run windows memory test as well just so that if memtest+ didn?t catch something.

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?

Your graphics driver is out dated significantly.
Please update it, there's a nice tutorial on how to update AMD drivers on their website.

I really only play the game Smite, which is not a demanding game and I play on minimum graphic settings. Whenever I play, I will play for a couple of hours and it will be fine, then out of no where it will blue screen. It will restart and I will try playing again and about a minute in it will blue screen, and will continue to blue screen everytime I try to play again until a couple hours of rest. I dont think its overheating because the computer doesnt feel hot at all and the fan is working fine. Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks.
