BSOD whilst playing various video games

Q: BSOD whilst playing various video games

Hello all,

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

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

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

Any help would be greately appreciated.

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

EDIT: Here is my system info:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz
MOTHERBOARD: Hewlett-Packard 1948
BIOS: Default System BIOS
TOTAL MEMORY: 8,00 GB
HDD: TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100
SOUND CARD: (1) IDT High Definition Audio CODEC (2) Intel(R) Display Audio
GRAPHICS CARD: (1) AMD Radeon HD 8750M (2) Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Preferred Solution: BSOD whilst playing various video games

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

I'll just add I've ran memtest for 8 hours with no errors.

So my RAM is safe.

Hope you can help, I can't take it anymore

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks in advance,
Mick

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

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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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]

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

A:PC Crashing Whilst Playing Games

Hey,

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

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

Hey guys,
OK, basically i'm having GSODs (grey striped screen of death) whenever I try to play Borderlands or BFBC2..its always about 3-5mins into the game and ALWAYS happens. The odd thing is that I was playing L4D2 for months with not a sniff of a BSOD until now.
I've gone through test after test after test and made little progress into finding out whats wrong + i've replaced the PSU, HDD & RAM in the hope that these might be causing the issues without getting into big ??s for a new GPU, CPU or MB.
The system is circa Oct 09...so components are still fairly new.

I'm not familiar with the more intrinsic areas of the PC like the Bios settings as i've never had a reason to be familiar with them so i've left my voltage settings on auto as I wouldn't have a clue as to what voltages I need to set everything to.
I've attached an analysis file in the hope that someone much cleverer than me can tell me what's wrong.

Thanks guys!

Hello everyone,

My laptop seems to have started switching itself off at random times when I am playing games, specifically STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, World in Conflict, The Sims 2, and probably others as well. I assume it is something to do with the graphics card or memory.

I was able to stop World in Conflict switching off by lowering the game detail settings, but the problem remains for STALKER, even if I switch the graphics to the lowest settings. This problem didn't occur a few months ago when I last installed it, and my computer is more than capable of running these games.

Does anyone have any idea what I can do to solve this problem, or at least what type of problem it is? Can I change my video/memory settings to compensate? I am running Windows Vista Home Premium, with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU processor, 4 GB of RAM, and a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.

I posted this question in the 'Games' section earlier, but I'm not sure it actually counts as a 'Game' problem.

Thanks alot for your help,

Hey, im having the most annoying problems. Fresh install for windows 7 ultimate x64, never experienced problems like this before. So whats happening, first off when i went to install windows 7 it took 6 times to get an install without problems. Secondly now that ive got a good install, im experiencing numerous problems. I've had 3 bsod's and a few times a day im experiencing crashes like i haven't seen before. The whole computer freezes. i cant even turn num lock on my keyboard and worst of all i cant even click the restart button i actually have to turn it off at the mains. i normally experience this when playing a game, but non of my components are overheating, i think it could be my hard drive as i had the problems installing software on previous windows installation.

Any idea's how to fix this?

I have had my laptop for about a week now, and in the last two days I have had a recurring problem. Whilst playing games (specifically LoL and Smite), the laptop screen completely freezes up and I hear a buzzing sound. The only way I have been able to get out of this is to power off the laptop but taking out the battery. It has gone up in frequency and I do not have any solutions so any help would be useful. My laptop specs are:

15.6-inch (1366 x 768 pixel, 100.45 ppi) TN matt display
Intel? Core? i7 4510U Processor
Intel HD Graphics 4400 + nVidia GeForce 820M (2 GB)

Hello, recently I've been experiencing some problems. I get the BSOD while playing video games. At first, it only happened with Simpsons HIT&RUN (pretty old game), other games worked fine. Yesterday, bsod started appearing while I was playing Tomb Raider after about 3 hours of gameplay. Now, it happens every time I start the game, after about 10-20 minutes.
I attached the dmp file, thanks in advance!

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.

Hi there, I seem to get constant BSOD's whenever I play video games such as the witcher 2, Star wars: Knights of the old republic etc. I never get a BSOD otherwise.

My PC specs are below:

Whenever a BSOD occurs its always PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, caused by the address: ntoskrnl.exe+705c0

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.

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.

What i have tried:
-Complete clean installs on multiple different internal HDDs.
-Different versions of Windows 7 and even Windows 8.
-Cooling down the system to the point that i'm now using 7 fans.

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.

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}

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.

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.

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 did...

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.

System:
Windows 7 home premium x64
Intel core 2 E6600
4 gig of DDR2
Nvidea geforce 8800 GTS with latest driver I could find
All the windows updates installed

I'm new on here, but I ran your tool to add all my system info and put in in .zip which I will attach to this post. Let me know if it's not correct.

A:BSOD While playing video, games and randomly

Oh and I would also like to add that I checked for malware and virusses. Found nothing.

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)
