BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

Q: BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

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

Motherboard: p5n32-e sli nforce 680i chipset

Preferred Solution: BSOD Playing various games, closing games, no overheating.

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.)

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

Certain games are causing my pc to just blue screen randomly now (skyrim, BFBC2). I've been monitoring my gpu and cpu temps with afterburner and aren't noticing anything out of the ordinary. Ive included and attached some event logs/dump files. Im thinking it might be my PSU. I do keep my pc running almost 24/7.

Here is my computer specs

A:BSOD after playing certain games. Not sure if overheating

A stray crash dump is not enough. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions . Attach the data with your reply post.

Also as you have doubt about overheating, report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

I have a HP Probook 4545s with AMD A4-4300m 4 GB of ram and AMD Radeon 7420g.The CPU temp suddenly increases from 35 ?C in idle to 85 ?C in a few seconds and drops back again to 35.This is really annoying cause the fan gets really loud for a few seconds.Also when I use Skype,or playing games after 15-20 minutes it shuts down(actually it hibernates).When i turn it on again it shows that the max cpu temp was over 120 ?C .Also lately I started getting BSOD KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR - 0x0000007A.The laptop is three months old and it was used for browsing.
Any suggestions?

A:Laptop overheating,BSOD while playing games

HP laptops are well known for over heating , I had to send mine back to HP because after just 6months from new because it wouldn't stay on for over 5 minutes it just over heated straight away so I think anyone who has a HP laptop needs a can of compressed air to keep the fan and fans vents clean, HP website/ signs of overheating and using compressed air to clean the fan and vents so my advice would be before you deal with the error message clean the fan and vents so hopefully your laptop will stay on and not over heat and then you'll beable to run CHKDSK without the laptop cutting out half way through ( which would be bad for the CHKDSK process and the laptop )

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!

Hi, I've recently upgraded my computer, here's the current spec:

CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6850 3.0GHz

Motherboard : Intel Classic Series DG31PR

RAM : Kingston 2GB 667MHz

HDD : 160GB

Video Card : ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT

PSU : 450W

Everything's fine except when I play games like NeverwinterNights 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. The computer suddenly hangs and the screen blanks out after about 5-6 minutes everytime I play those games. The computer cannot reset, I have to manually turn off the power and turn on again to restart. What is the problem? My friend says it could be overheating. My idle computer temperature is around 66-69C. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?


A:Sudden crashes while playing games...overheating?

I think the temp is too high and while you play games it will raise. did you also upgrade the cpu fan? Idle temp for intels should be 40 to 45 C.
check heat transfer paste, fan, maybe the psu gets too hot and warms up the whole desktop?

Hi Since a few weeks, my Elitebook becomes very hot while playing games. (Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Cities: Skylines, The Crew...)After getting really too hot to put my hand anywhere near the exhaust port, my laptop's screen shuts down.When I reboot the system after a while, everything seems to work again. Could it be that the cooling system doesn't manage to keep up with the heat my graphics card generates while playing these games? I've allready cleaned the vents, but the problem persists.The graphics card I'm currently using is an AMD firepro M4000.I've tried looking for solutions and even possibilities to upgrade my graphics card, but it seems the latest models use an AMD firepro M5950, so I'm not sure wether the suggested graphics cards would be compatible with my system. Can anybody help me with this? I've allways been very happy with my laptop, and i'd rather not buy a new one if this problem could be solved by replacing a part or another less extreme operation. thx

I have this PC for years, and last year my GPU started overheating (The same game I've played with 70°C was now 100°C), so I cleaned everything and Reapplied the Thermal Paste on the processor. So everything was back to normal.
But last month, it started all again, but now everything is clean. Just to make sure, I cleaned it again but when I play a game like Overwatch, when the GPU is at 70°C, the game runs on 60 frames per second. But after 10min playing, the GPU is already on 103°C and the FPS has a massive drop to 20~25. This all started last month.
Could someone help me? Please, I know it isn't supposed to be like this.
My GPU is a GT635.

I realized that my graphics card (Geforce 6800GT)idles at 59C, but slowly builds up to 70C when I play a game. At this point, my mouse light starts to flicker, and freeze constantly etc etc. There are also chances of getting a nv4_mini.sys BSoD. My question is, is it normal for the 6800GT to go up 10C just by playing a game? It isnt even that graphic intensive (CS 1.6, Warcraft 3). Currently, I have one side of the PC case opened for more air flow. It lowered temperatures a bit (i use to have temperatures up to 80C) but it still doesn't seem to be enough. Are there any options besides buying fans?

A:Graphics Card Overheating while playing games

It is normal for temperatures to rise during a game but your temperatures are a bit high. You could remove the heatsink and fan, clean the old thermal compound off and reapply some Arctic Silver and reinstall the heatsink/fan to the graphics card. As long as your fan is capable of getting up to full song, your temps should go down. Anyway, it's cheap to try.

Hello Sevenforums i got this problem playing high performance games..

When i enter the following games (below) my graphic hits 75 - 85 celcius (what worries me is the world of warcraft... It's only on HIGH and it goes to almost 90 celcius)

World of warcraft (high)
Battlefield 3 (Ultra)
Guild wars 2 (Ultra)

I was reading abit about this problem on google and saw a person telling another one that was having the same problem as me that a PSU could heat up your GPU if it is just under your GPU..

- My PSU is not far from my GPU and the fan on my PSU is almost just up against my GPU so i kinda wonder can a PSU really heat up my GPU that much?

My cousin got a very tiny case for his pc, he got a gtx 560ti and hits 65 - 70 celcius and goes 50fps in stormwind with 60+ players around him and 200 - 250fps outside stormwind. in stormwind i got 20 fps and in world i got 60 - 100 fps.

I got a Evga GTX 580 1534MB myself and should be alot better then the gtx 560TI.. He also runs 20 - 30 fps higher then me in Guild wars (60 - 90fps) i am running 30 - 50fps..

Any help would help me.. I've updated my specs and i will upload a picture of the inside of my pc when i get back my phone tomorrow!

Battlefield runs smooth but my pc is overheating.

A:GTX 580 overheating playing High Performance games

A 580 draws more power, and delivers far more performance than a 560 so it is not thta stragnge it will run warmer.

75-85C for a 580 is normal. Now, if you simply want it to run cooler theres a couple things you should do.

1. Clean out your case with some compressed air. Clean all the fans, filters and inside of everything well to get rid of as much dust as you can.

2. Improve airflow.
You'll want to make sure you have plenty of cool air cioming in, and towards the GPU from the front of the case. make sure there are no wires etc that can obstruct the airflow.

3. And lastly, you can use a program like eVGA Precision or Afterburner and create a custom fan profile. I have mine set to ramp up on the slope type settings. At 70C its running the fan at 60% which keeps it much cooler than the default speeds. Never really goes over 65-70 under heavy load.
Just depends on how cool you want it to run, how much airflow you have now, and how much noise you are willing to add to your PC. Faster fan speeds do improve temps, but increase noise a good deal too.

Also, on framerates.
You must consider the game settings used, as well as resolution. If hes running a lower resolution, it will be easier to get hifgher FPS with less for example.

Also, depending on your monitor, Vsync should be used.

heres why.
Lets say your monitor is 60hz. This means it can only display 60FPS, no matter what. If your GPU is drawing 10,000 FPS it doesnt matter. Only 60FPs gets displayed on the screen... Read more

My graphic card could run every game until a month ago without any problems. But a moth ago it started to overheat on games like AC III and the picture was very laggy and the fan was making very loud noises, I`m not really a expert on computers so I`m here for a opinion on what should I do. Here is to understand the problem some pictures of my temperatures:

The first one is while playing Fifa 13, and I even adjusted my visual settings for best performance.
The second one is on my normal settings when I wasn`t doing anything.

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. Recently I've had many computer crashes with various error messages. I've made sure that crash dumps are enabled but haven't received any for any of the crashes. The crashes have happened while playing games sometimes and other times after closing games. I've run memtest for many passes multiple times, I've also tried re-seating my RAM but those didn't seem to work. I can't find any drivers that are out of date either. I've checked the event viewer and there hasn't been anything that seemed useful in there. I'll attach some of those files and pictures of some of the bluescreens. Thanks in advance.

Obvious to anyone. You have three malware apps running live at the same time. You have Avast, Kaspersky, and AVG.

You need to remove them all and install Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST.

If you continue to crash even after removing them upload the DMP file as you have old drivers that need updating.

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

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.

As said in the title, my BSODs happen AFTER I close my games, this includes Minecraft, Battlefield: Bad company 2, sometimes Starcraft 2, and Elder Scrolls: Oblivion... I usually get a "3B" BCCode, but i have gotten both "3B" and "1E". I recently reinstalled Windows 7, via a partition on my HP for system recovery, but after installing all Important Windows updates, I played Minecraft for 30 minutes, closed, and got BSOD. Below are Perfmon report, and NT6 BSOD dmp's. I have updated my gfx card to the most recent display driver, via amd's website.

ANY help would be appreciated, this all started a little over a month ago, I only have one BSOD dmp, because of reinstalling Windows however. I'm running a 64 bit, Windows 7 Home Premium (OEM), 4GB of RAM, and have an AMD Athlon II x4 635 processor, 2.90 GHz. Oh and I have an HD Radeon 4650 with 1gig of VRAM.

Hi guys, first post here.

I'm having a problem with my graphics card. It is an XFX triple X edition GTX275 and I am using it to power 2 x 24" monitors. I have had the card for around a year without any noticeable problems. However, during the past 2 weeks I have been getting BSOD on closing down of games or alt-tabbing during games. The card doesn't BSOD any other time or crash during game play but whenever I close down a game or alt tab out of a game (tried on CoD:MW2 and The Sims 3) It always blue screens. I have upgraded and installed new drivers with no affect. I have also ran Furmark stress test for 10 minutes and other than getting a bit hot (levelling at 102) it ran fine without BSOD. Anyone help me out on any idea what the problem is? The stop code is always 0x03b.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all, recently my pc began locking up, not BSOD, but locking up. I decided it was time to clean it out, and did so. After cleaning out my pc and updating video drivers I began experiencing error 3B, and changed my GPU drivers again to a version one previous to the newest as I suspected the new drivers were the cause of my crashes. After doing this, I have been getting BSOD 50, which is confusing as that is a memory issue as far as I know.

I have the crash dumps available in the file.

I am skeptical that it is a memory issue, but I am sure you all will know more from the dump logs.

When I close out of some games my monitor goes black and I stop hearing audio but the PC keeps running. After I restart the PC I get this error.

Hello, R34P3R. I will try to help you with this. First it is important for you to fill out your system specs in as much detail as possible including your PSU and CPU Cooler. We have to look up components often and Manufacturer and Model are necessary.
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.

Hello, everyone,

I'll try to give as much information as I can in the first post to make this as, hopefully, easy as possible.

Like the title says, I get a BSoD occasionally when I try to start playing a game or when I try to close a game. From what I can recall, I have not had an actual BSoD while actively playing a game. Additionally, this only seems to happen with games I have on Steam, although I may not be remembering perfectly. Specifically speaking, when I double click on a shortcut for a Steam game, double click the name of a game in the Steam client, X out of a game or properly exit from a game through a menu, I get the BSoD.

Unfortunately, I do not have all of the log files from my previous crashes, only the most recent one, from today. From what I can remember, they haven't all been the same .dll error. I commonly see win32k, like today, but I have seen at least 4 other exception errors previously.

The BSoDs are very sporadic. Sometimes I can go several weeks without having one, sometimes I have 3 or more in a day. I've had them happen from several different games on Steam now, and even that isn't consistent. Today it happened with Torchlight 2; when I rebooted I tried loading the game again and did so without issue. When I reformatted my computer several months ago, I also had a few BSoD when installing games to my secondary hard drive, through Steam as well as other methods (other distribution clients, CDs, etc.). However, I have not had that issue when recen... Read more

Hey technicians!

First I would like to thank you for taking the time to help this non technician out!
I'm from the Netherlands so my english might contain some bad grammar but I'll do my best.

So i've always been in a position where I cannot really afford a decent pc. I've had this one for a couple of years, but updated shit along the way.

I on accident fried my motherboard once, so pc shop put new one in. I had been getting bsod sometimes, after that I also got a new hard drive ( fresh windows) then a new ssd ( fresh windows ) updated everryhing, got nice cable management so no overheating since no dust. CPU doesnt go higher the 60c and vid card wont go higher then 70c.

Now here is the thing, I think with the heavier games I get BSOD but I've got no clue where it is coming from!!
I switched around my ram, checked all cables. And now I got to the point where I just wanna smash shit with a hammer!
I am thinking ( Might be completly dumb but whatev):

Not anough power ( can that cause bsod? )
Bad juju? :P

Apologies for my poor english.

I've been having some BSOD and freezing issues starting somewhere around this month. There are some random older .dmp files here too but the ones that are the real problem are the ones created this month.

As i said in the title, these crashes usually happen after playing games. Most of the time it's a freeze, but sometimes it's a BSOD.

I have not made any hardware changes to my computer recently and it has been working fine before this.

Also, when the freezes happen my screen often looks corrupted with weird lines going horizontally across plus the current sounds going in a really fast loop.

Again, sorry for my poor formatting and english.

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 ^^)

Last summer I was downstairs on my pc connected to an ethernet to the router. Internet was great no problems really.. I have a twin brother who is upstairs and he used wireless he lagged alot and he only had problems if I was on my computer and that went on for a while. I have a grandfather who sat infront of me while I was on my pc and I couldnt do it so I moved upstairs but I didnt have a wireless pci adapter for my pc I had a wifi adapter which you plug in the wall to wirelessy connect to the router downstairs and I just put my pc's ethernet into the wireless adapter. I used that for a little bit until I couldnt take the high ping I was getting in game servers forcing me to just move my pc in the corner of my room and I havent been on it since. I have been playing ps4 using a wireless connect to the router downstairs. I have connection problems off and on but not every day. I today just got back on my pc and I am expieriencing constant lag and disconnection from games and discord. My router is the NightHawk AC1700 ,my Adapter is a tplink adapter. What can I do to increase my internet speeds I just dont want so much lag and horrible ping when I play my pc games with my friends.. and a reminder my router is downstairs with the modem.

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&#63;
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 &#40;SP1&#41; 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 cwhite, Welcome to SF

Both of your dump files indicate an 0x124 error which is a hardware error heres some more info for you
BSOD Index
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

To be more specific your files state
this indicates the processor sent out a read request to L0 cache, and there was a delay in return

if your system is overclocked in anyway stop straight away if not check your cpu cooling as this may be caused by overheating, check your system/cpu temps and if they seem ok then try some stress testing of the cpu but be careful to monitor cpu temps at all times while stressing

Hi there,

i have some serious problems with my pc and i hope you guys can help me out.
but before i start i have to apologize for my bad english cause i?m german.

i experienced a few bsods since i started gaming on my pc a few weeks ago. i bought a new graphicscard and a new power supply. when i start the game it lasts a few minutes sometimes an hour until i got the bsod.
i checked bluescreenview and in 5 from 6 cases it blames ntoskrnl.exe as the problem. the other cause would be nvlddmkm.sys.

i updated all nvidia drivers for the graphics and the win 7 directx. since then it seems getting better, because bsods don?t happen that fast anymore.
sfc /scannow does not report anything bad.
i dont?t think its an overheating issue, cause my gpu does not get over 76 degrees.
i just played two games since i started gaming, both over steam. metro 2033 and half life 2. i wondered if it might be a prob with steam???

i attached the health report and the dumpfiles, i hope i did not forget anything.
any help would be appreciated.

my system specs:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (OEM disk from retailer that i installed myself/system was originally vista 64bit)

I just got a BSOD stating "atikmdag.sys..". I have uploaded the files in the correct format hopefully.

Thanks for your time.

Edit: Forgot to add that I kept getting the display driver has crashed and recovered error while playing Fallout 3 and Anno 2070 aswell. - Windows 7 64bit

Hello, psychobean and welcome to the forms. I will try to assist you. You only had 1 dump file, dated today. It said, as you know, it was your graphics driver.


Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: fffffa800a9f74e0, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88003ce5970, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 000000000000000d, Optional internal context dependent data.
A Video TDR fault means basically the graphics driver crashed but did not recover in time, so the system assumes a video failure and shuts down to protect itself. This is your current driver

Welcome aboard. There are multiple reason of the crashes.

► First of all, the October edition of nvidia display driver, which usually crashes there.

fffff880`03ecd258 fffff880`115d746f*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Install driver fusion. Then uninstall the display driver using it. Then get the September version of nvidia display driver, using the advanced search of NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search.

► Also, AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver

fffff880`03ece568 fffff880`00c38300*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for amd_sata.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for amd_sata.sys
update it from AMD Support & Drivers

► uninstall the following programs

Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite *** A must to do
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility
Start Menu\Programs\ASRock Utility\AsrAppCharger
► Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept the restart.
Let us know the results.

Hi Guys!

The BSOD-s started with Battlefield 3. Then I tried every kind of solution which i found online, but nothing worked. Then I recently did a full system refresh, Battlefield crashed again. So I got used to it, and played other games like Trine 2 or Counter Strike Global Offensive. Those games worked just fine, but now they're also crashing. Anything else works fine, older games also work. After 10 or 15 minutes of play. Usually I find the root of the problem but now this tricks me well.

Now the PSU is suspicious for me. My card needs minimum 500w, i have this exact amount. But maybe it's not enough for fully powering the videocard.

Thank you in advance!
