BSOD playing video games / loading video games [MEMORY_MANAGEMENT]

Q: BSOD playing video games / loading video games [MEMORY_MANAGEMENT]

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

I've uploaded my dump files.

Thank you.

I 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.)

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 1A, {41201, fffff6800001aca8, 8080000019905825, fffffa8003e5ded0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+136f2 )

Followup: MachineOwner
According to Carrona.org, STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

So what you are to do here is

► Enable Driver Verifier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

► Test the RAM modules.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run it for at least eight passes. Preferably overnight.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

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.

Hi all. I have just received a BSOD while playing a game called Planet Explorers on my computer. I am unable to find out how to analyze the dump file, and I can't upload it here because, even when compressed, the file is 184 MB. Can anyone help me find a solution to this?

I can laos provide any specs or anything else that is need if that is necessary.

Hello and welcome flaccorice mate you need to use this to read the dump files
WinDBG - Install and Configure for BSOD Analysis
and I am assuming you can read them of course. I have just started doing this and it is no easy task

Also yes mate it is a very good idea to upload the specs on your machine so we can see what we are working with ie no good replacing the tyres on a car unless one know what size they need to be

System Info - See Your System Specs

Now it would again be a good idea to upload the dump files anyway as many hands make light work.

Recommendations:Crashes point to a hardware fault. Do the following hardware testing:


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AODDriver2.sys Tue Mar 6 01:39:27 2012 (4F55CD3F)
AMD Overdrive; also in EasyTune6 for Gigabyte motherboard [br] Known BSOD issues in Win7

To update drivers, make sure to download the drivers from the manufacturer and not using 3rd party programs. Your drivers should be found from your motherboard support site (ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, etc.) or your vendor support site (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Sony, etc.) first. If you have devices you bought yourself, the drivers for those device... Read more

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.

Many of us on the forums actually do not recommend automated optimization tools for Windows 7. Windows 7 does a much better job of handling its own optimization than its predecessors did. We especially do not recommend registry cleaning as an "optimization" step because automated registry cleaning causes more harm to the registry than it actually repairs.

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.
-I have rolled my LAN and ... Read more

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!

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.

Temp 1:82C
Temp 2:49C
Temp 3:-128C
HDO: 40C

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.

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.

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.

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

Hello, I've been getting the dreaded BSOD when playing video games. It happens at random. Sometimes I can play for a couple of hours with no problems and sometimes I'll not see a bluescreen for days. It only happens when playing games. Also, I'm not sure if it's relevant, but during the BSOD my speakers will emit a loud buzzing noise as well.

A:BSOD when playing games or watching video

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.
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.

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

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable.

Thank you.

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

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

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

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

Hi, 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.

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

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...

I have so serious issues with my graphic card that i can't figure out.
It always bsod while i usually watch a video or playing a game.
I have attach my last 5 minidump.

Can anyone help me?

A:BSOD while watching video or playing games

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.

Edit: Also monitor your GPU temperature if you can while playing games

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

Hello! I'm so frustrated, I just can't find what's my problem is.

I'm getting BSODs all the time, main reason is when i'm playing games, or watch videos in browser. I assume some problems with my video card.

I've used latest latest Nvidia drivers -still crashing. I've installed older version - same.

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

And today my PC gaved me BSOD while idle.

And just now when i was writing this text. It came out when i've maximized total commander.

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:


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...

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

Here is my computer information:

A:BSOD - Windows Crashes from Playing Video Games

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


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

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

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


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

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

Then, here's the procedure:

Hello, and thanks in advance to anyone that puts any thought into troubleshooting my BSoD issues.

I recently upgraded my computer and have installed all new hardware except for my HDD. (I did do a complete wipe and fresh install of Windows on my existing HDD after installing the new hardware, however.) Since upgrading my computer, I've been getting BSoDs that seem to rotate between three different error codes. The BSoD crashes often happen while playing various video games or while watching videos on YouTube or news sites.

I've tried everything that I can think of to resolve the issues and am at my wit's end at this point. Any assistance trying to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Possible helpful information:
I have performed a clean install of Windows on the HDD an additional 3 times since the original install after the build.
I have run MemTest86 on all ram sticks at the same time, as well as each ram stick individually, with zero errors.
I have replaced my new video card (including drivers) with an older borrowed video card thinking that my new card was defective. I've still had crashes.
I've only installed the video card drivers and not the additional programs packaged with the driver download.
I've had crashes while watching videos downloaded onto my computer and while streaming videos online.
The games I've played leading up to crashes are: Neverwinter Online, EverQuest, League of Legends.
I have not attempted to overclock any hardware.

Hey all,

So before I begin, here are the stats of my laptop.

-Asus G60JX
-Windows 7 - x64
-Nvidia Geforce GTS 360M
-1 1/2 years old.
-Have never reformatted or reinstalled OS.
So i've had this gaming laptop for around 1 1/2 years old and it's been blue screening since as long as i can remember. I should have taken the laptop back but at that time i was not very knowledgeable about computers (still aren't), and didn't know how bad BSOD's were. As far as the BSOD's go, it actually doesn't occur too frequently, maybe like once every month or so. But, it has happened on a consistent basis, ever since as long as i can remember. 95% of the time, the BSOD's occur while playing games.

I just updated the BIOS to the newest version about a week ago, but just got a BSOD while playing Battlefield 3. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with a driver relating to my graphics card, but i'm no expert. If you guys can help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Please keep in mind that i'm still a novice when it comes to this computer stuff. Thanks.

Hello hungry and welcome!

The BSoD you had caused your Graphic Driver. Follow the steps below to make a secure remove of your driver.


i) Find your driver here, save it to your desktop
ii) Download Driver sweeper, for the leftover files
iii) Uninstall your driver from the Control Panel
iv) While rebooting, go into safe-mode without internet (tip: plugout your LAN cable or disconnect wireless)
v) Run Driver Sweeper, click all the Nvidia components and analyse them
vi) Clean them all
vii) Head into Windows, without internet
viii) Install the Driver from the desktop

Update DirectX


Check your temperatures on your Graphic Card with software like Speccy.

The Graphic Driver is of course the main cause, but you need to do the other things sometime anyway.

Update these drivers

- ASMMAP64.sys
- sncduvc.SYS

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 help you search Google for the name of the driver

Hello, I've been getting this BSOD lately and having trouble figuring out the cause. This happens while I am playing a video game, game doesn't have to be specific. I have done memtest, chkdsk, and a virus scan with malwarebytes and found no issues.

The internal error state is 252." repeated a lot in the event viewer and occasionally "Service 'WMPNetworkSvc' did not start correctly because CoCreateInstance(CLSID_UPnPDeviceFinder) encountered error '0x80004005'. Verify that the UPnPHost service is running and that the UPnPHost component of Windows is installed properly."

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

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

SP1 isn't installed (you only have 2 updates total), 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.

My laptop crashes everytime i put it in Gaming Mode - a button i press on the keyboard that will automatically overclock my cpu/gpu, this was made by the manufactures and i have never fiddled with it - and then proceed to play a game. The time it takes to BSOD seems to be entirely random anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour and a half. It also doesn't seem to scale with how intensive the game is; a relatively light game like Trine 2 was the first to cause me this problem and usually BSOD'd me very quickly while Arkham Origins will usually BSOD from half an hour onwards.

I finally got reliable high speed internet two days ago and updated my AMD drivers from the horribly outdated 13.2 (i think i stupidly got the drivers from my backup hard-drive instead of just downloading them) to the current version 14.9

This helped immensely and i thought the problem was solved until just now when my computer BSOD after having played Tera for 3 hours.

Possible Issues:

Age/Gaming Mode. I have had the laptop for 4 years now, even though it has never been a problem before perhaps it can no longer handle being overclocked. However as most modern games require the power i get from Gaming Mode to be playable this is my final alternative.
Hardware. I clean out the heat sink and replace the thermal paste every few month or my laptop would run too hot. Issues first appeared after a complete reinstall and clean. Maybe i ruined something this time ?

I've had this laptop for a while now and got used to its quirks. For the past year I've had to live with a BSOD that has made my life living hell.

The Laptop:
Asus N55SF
More specifications are given in the files attached.

So firstly I was having BSODs due to my old nvidia drivers that came with the laptop which I fixed by getting the new ones. However this error which seems to be related to the nvkflt.sys driver has been around for a year. It appears randomly locks up my computer for a second or two and crashes it. On the top of the BSOD it says that it tried to recover from driver failure but failed. Since I've read so many posts about it, I know that that is a natural action from windows if the video drivers fail.

I've tried:
Complete nvidia driver re-installs.
Warranty repair (Basically they just re-installed the default windows version full out bloatware and fixed my screen 2 times.)
Updating most drivers I could find that were available for update.
Sorta tried driver verifier but it kept crashing my windows before it started and giving me a BSOD about HIDClass (I think that was the case).

Let it run for at least 15 minutes - or until the app itself says that it's done. Then zip it up and upload it with your next post.
While waiting, ensure that you have ALL Windows Updates. It may take several trips to get them all.

I noticed that you don't have Secure Boot enabled. If you were having problems with it and changed it, please let us know.

It's not necessary to enable it now. But, should you reinstall Windows at some point in the future, please enable it first.

I mention this because it may happen that (one day) the system won't boot. This can be caused by a program changing your UEFI settings, or an update of the UEFI resetting it to default values.

To test and see if this is the cause, boot into the UEFI and see if the settings have been changed. If uncertain, try with Secure Boot both on and off (and the UEFI on UEFI or Legacy (CSM))

If it still doesn't boot after trying this, then move on to other troubleshooting tools as it's not likely to be due to this.

My computer would randomly restart very rarely. Today it started happening frequently and saying there is a problem with your PC. I figured enough out on how to get the Memory Dumps so here is a link to those. I appreciate all the help. Currently running windows 8 pro.

A:BSOD originally when playing video games. Now all the time

Only 141 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 160 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

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 - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

At times the Killer Network Manager may cause BSOD problems:

NOTE: See this link first: BSOD while playing on msi gt70 dragon edition 2 (thanks to kaelaan) It appears that the Killer Service problem was solved with the latest release of the Qualcomm versions of the drivers (so try updating to a version dated from later in 2014).

The Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service/KillerNetManager is known to cause BSOD's. Please follow the workaround instructions here:

First, open the Run dialog (Win + R keys) and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Scroll down and locate the "Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service" and right click on it. Select "Stop"
Right click on it again and this time select "Properties"
In the dropdown box for "Startup type&quo... Read more

Hi senZ,
Please update the BIOS to the newest version 2603
Please go to Windows Update in the control panel and check for update, be sure that you install all available updates with the exception for Windows 10.
Unfortunately there are no dumps, only records about forced power shutdowns what isn't really useful. There do happen to be corrected hardware errors.
Could you make a photo of the BSOD and post it please.

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

Welcome to SF .

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

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

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

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

Hi All,

Having a BSOD problem whenever I'm playing any games, especially when it becomes graphically intensive.

Have used memtest, seems there are no problems with RAM, have made sure the correct RAM configuration is being used.

System Specs:

Windows 7 x64 OEM (system & OS installed 2 months ago)

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67 LE
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500
RAM: Corsair CMX8GX3M2A1333C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 (Dual Channel Kit)
HDD: Corsair 80gb Force Series SSD

Any chance I could possibly have some help to determine the cause of these BSODs?

The necessary files are attached accordingly.

Thanks in advance!

These crashes were caused by memory corruption (probably a driver). Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!
1-Memtest. Needs to be done for at least 6 passes. If yours passed this just run verifier.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one,... Read more
