BSOD randomly while playing multiple games and idle, error 0x0000003b

Q: BSOD randomly while playing multiple games and idle, error 0x0000003b

Been getting frequent BSOD past few months, like 2/3 times in a month. Only recently have I started getting crashes every other day. It isn't even a BSOD, it just crashes and restarts as if it was a BSOD.

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 do not have Service Pack 1 installed.
Make sure you install it to prevent vulnerabilities in your system.


Code:
Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600
Install all updates using Windows Update.


Code:

Daemon Tools/Alcohol is known cause of BSODs, you will have to find an alternative as there is no way around this.

I've recently decided that the problem might not just be my ram, so before i upgrade I decided to seek some help. I've had multiple BSOD's while gaming, as well as sitting idle since august 27th (increasing in frequency). Also experiencing crashes during gaming as well as firefox crashes, 2-5 times an hour in fact. Windows 7 professional x64, intel i5 quad core, 4gigs of g.skill ram, 10k rpm velociraptor HD, nVidia geforce 8800gt, the original installed OS on the system, full retail version, Everything is about 2 years old, the video card is around 5 years old I believe, OS was installed a little under 2 years ago.

A:BSoD's playing games, and randomly on Idle, Multiple errors

I did some more digging while waiting on a response. I borrowed a new gpu from a buddy because someone recommended elsewhere that the issue was the gpu ram. The crashes and BSoD's have slowed dramatically in frequency but they are still present. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello, and thanks for trying to help with this. I am having issues with several crashes, and one thing is constant. It only happens when graphics are involved. My pc crashes on games such as LoL, CoD:BO 1 and 2, Minecraft, and (for that random variable) Grim Fandango Remastered. I get 0x0000003B, 0x1000007e, and 0x00000109. If there was audio playing, it usually bugs out the speakers.

Only recently (as of the date of this thread) has something stranger occurred. 0x0000003B happened, but the audio looped back on the last 10 seconds of music playing. Attached is the crash report. Again, thanks for any help

I built this computer for a friend of mine (the one under my specs) and he's having trouble with BSOD's. I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Still problems, so I thought the RAM was going bad. We ran memtest86+ and found an error so I replaced the RAM with the one currently in my profile. He ran memtest again and found 0 errors. He is still having BSOD's mostly IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL on ntoskrnl.sys, tcpip.sys, afd,sys, ks, sys, etc. We reinstalled manufacturer drivers from Asrock and installed the latest catalyst from ATI for the HD 5770. We've done some other troubleshooting: CHKDSK found nothing, hard drive SMART wasn't tripped, had no reallocated sectors. I've disabled everything in BIOS that could cause troubles, Cool n quiet, advanced core calibration, etc. I had him run the BSOD posting tool.

MetalSlugXT, try updating the display driver to the latest WHQL.

You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.


During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

Also update the network driver from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...&GetDown=false.

Also update your wireless USB card's driver. Search for it in http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php . In my best guess, it is the cause of most of the crashes.

Let us know the results.

I recently made my own computer for the first time and at the beginning there were no problems but now I get BSOD's alot now. Any help solving this problem is appreciated.

A:BSOD Randomly during idle time. Error 0x0000001a, 0x0000003b

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) 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!!!

* If you have a Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*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 5-7 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, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Driver Verifier

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.

Hey, its a great gaming rig, but just recently started getting these BSOD. While playing Stronghold 3, I've been getting them none stop making it impossible to play, as well as with many other games.

My computer has been doing this a lot recently and its started doing it more often, usually the 0x0000003b code pops up when either windows media player is on or when it is stood idle for a while. Using NirSoft's bluescreen viewer it stating that the ntoskrnl.exe is the problem in all minidumps, it also sometimes states nvator64.sys is the other file that causes the bluescreen. i have attached the minidumps to this and hopefully someone will tell me how to fix it, i have checked online and gathered it down to these 3 options... either my PSU is not powerful enough to support the payload, my HDD is corrupt or the RAM is stating to fail. Thank you for the people who can help! as a side note, i have tried formatting and reinstalling my windows 7 64bit ultimate, but the BSOD can appear on setup and did at one point so i had to renew the whole setup, recently it has started doing it a lot more. one happened not too long ago and also had the CDD.dll file as an error. Also before anyone says it, YES MY DRIVERS ARE ALL UP TO DATE! there are literally no updates available for my hardware which is why i think its either my HDD or RAM.

My Specs:
AMD Athlon II X2 245 2.91 Dualcore

Hi, since last month my computer started to crash in different situations. Sometimes it crashes while playing games (Assassins Creed Unity, GTA V, and today, The Witcher 3), in this case occurs both bsod or game force closes, sometimes it crashes while i browse in Google Chrome (again, bsod and chrome Aw, snap!), and even in idle it crashes (i found out because i left on steam and when i came back it had reseted).

Whenever I play online games, like s4 league or some Mmmorpg, I eventually get a blue screen after hour(s) of playing.
To narrow down the problem, I would say that I have been getting these blue screens pretty much a couple weeks after getting this computer. Meaning it's likely not because I downloaded something.

I'm wondering what information I should give you guys, so you can figure out what the cause could be?

A:BSOD when playing all games, error 0x0000003B

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible. Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Specifically BSoDed twice in 1 day, once when alt-tabbing from Dota 2, and the other when playing Wakfu. Chrome was active during both instances. I am not certain about the older crashes and I think that the last two are not connected to the others.

BlueScreenView gives the bug string for the 2 latest crashes as PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Majority of the crashes point to ntoskrnl.exe in BlueScreenView, but I have heard that it is not the actual culprit in most cases.

So far I have run Memtest with no errors, passed a HDD scan, also Furmark and Video Memory Test have run with no problems. I'm not sure how to pinpoint the problem further or even whether it is hardware or software issue. However, I have not attempted to run any games since the BSoDs appeared.

I did update the Nvidia drivers with GeForce Experience and Msi/Intel drivers using LiveUpdate 5 after the earlier BSoD on the 28th as other BSoD threads said to ensure that all your drivers are updated. Daemontools Light and Alcohol 52% have been uninstalled since the 28th BSoD as well.

My PC started randomly locking up on me. It has not done it while I am working on it (good excuse to stay on it!!), it always locks up while I am away and the system is idle. It happens whether I have apps open or not. I don't get a BSOD, the PC is just locked up. I can reboot and everything seems to work again until I leave it alone.

I thought it might be overheating so I went ahead and cleaned out the case and all the fans. The fans run much quieter now that there is decent airflow, but the lock ups still happen. According to the dump files, the cause seems to be ks.sys but I have not found anything that leads to a solution.

No idea what to do from here. Attached is the SF Diag Tool output. Ideas?

A:PC locks up randomly so far when idle, error 0x0000003b

First, we want to make sure the computer is saving your dump files. Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Startup and Recovery [Settings] Make sure that "Write Debugging Information" is set to Small Memory Dump (256kb) if it is not already.Create a Dump File when you get a BSOD
Next, make sure that the folder C:\Windows\Minidump exists. If not, create it (allow permission if asked). Make sure any dumps you want to analyze, whether yours or others', are in this folder. You can ZIP/RAR the files and send them to someone else to analyze as well.

Reduce items at start up:Performing a Clean Startup in Windows 7

Add, or Remove Startup Programs in Windows 7
Your Antivirus software is basically whats just needed there.

Hi community,
I have been getting BSODs randomly, I built this computer this June, I am not sure when the BSOD started as I was busy with university and initially I thought since its haswell it might take some time for stable drivers, may be that's why I avoided it.
Now I have time to diagnose this problem, the BSODs are random, sometimes playing game (BF3) and sometimes even when on skype. I checked the whocrashed program and it said it is caused by hal.dll (error code : 0x124).
Here's what I've done but to no avail:
- Initially I had TR2 Thermaltake (500W) PSU, then a month ago I changed to Seasonic G-Seires 650W but still suffered from BSOD.

- I am not overclocking anything and in bios performance is set to normal (factory).
- I thought it might be caused by drivers, so I enabled driver verifier and fixed all the drivers causing any BSODs.
- Initially when playing Bf3 my CPU temperature would go high, so I also changed my cooler to NH-U14S.

Hello, my computer is recently crashing, I recently had some work done to it hardware wise and they had to do a fresh Windows 7 install because of all the hardware changes that Vista couldn't handle. They said if you do a lot of hardware changes, especially the motherboard you'd have to do a fresh install of Vista, and I said just do Windows 7. So a month it was working wonderfully on extensive games and recently maybe within this week my computer would randomly when loading games crash to the motherboard splash screen. Then when my computer starts up I see an AMD popup, and a Windows has recovered from an unexpected crash.

Here's my dump file:

A:BSOD error when playing multiple games

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

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

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

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






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

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

Greetings, 7 forum. So let me start at the beginning of what's been happening. I bought my Cyberpower gaming PC from Newegg to play games like League of Legends, World of Warcraft, etc., and upon recieving the computer, which came with an integrated video card, I disabled the IVC and installed a dedicated video card that I'd been using with my previous machine, which was comparable in terms of power. Why use it, then? Well, it's a dedicated video card, and I've been told that dedicated video cards are better to use than integrated video cards. That being said, random, frequent BSOD's started happening for seemingly no reason.

I emailed Cyberpower's tech support team, telling them of my problems. They told me that the various error codes I'd given them were pointing to my RAM. As it turns out, one of the RAM sticks was bad, and they RMA'd me a new one.

The first round of codes, before getting the new RAM stick, included:

0x0000003B SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
0x00000019 BAD_POOL_HEADER
0x00000119

There were also other ones, but I didn't take a picture / write them down. At that point, I'd had almost TEN Blue Screens. After getting the new RAM stick, I also removed the dedicated vidoe card and re-enabled the integrated video card, figuring maybe that was causing issues. It didn't help, nor did the new RAM stick. I even re installed Windows for good measure. I'm still getting BSODs, 2 of the error codes I've gotten are:

I have been experiencing multiple crashes from a few different games. The one most prominent is Dragon Age: Origins where it crashes once it starts. I have a 50/50 crash rate on other games like Hearthstone and Smite. It only crashes when a game is being played and only when the game is being booted. Some games have never caused a BSOD like League of Legends and Fallout NV.

I have the game on GOG and have tried a million fixes, but none work, so I am just hoping that something helpful might be learned from my .dmp files to help me figure out what is causing the issue.

I have updated to the latest drives and am not currently running antivirus software that could be conflicting. I have also turned off things like Gefore Experience and the GOG in-game overlay (and 100 other things), so this is my last hope.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated (ok if you can solve this, then I'd actually love you forever and might be willing to give you my first born).

Hello!
Since last weeks I've had multiple BSOD's and it seems to happen mostly while I play games through steam. Games like GTA4, The witcher 2 and Sleeping dogs cause the crashes while I for some reason can play Shogun Total war 2 for hours without problems.

Hello Kwandao and welcome to Sevenforums.

Have you tried to disable the Steam Overlay? To do this-* Launch Steam and click on the "Settings" button. Click on the "In-Game Settings" tab.
* Uncheck the box next to "Enable Steam Community In-Game" and click OK.
* Disable the Steam Overlay on specific games only by right-clicking on the game title, click on "Properties" and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the "General" tab.

Troubleshooting

Different culprits pointed towards your ATI Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.

* Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
* Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
* Download Driver Sweeper
* Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your START
* Select all the ATI components and analyse them
* Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously

DirectX

* Have you updated your directX recently?
* What's your temperatures just before a crash?

I've gotten error code 0x00000101 and I got 0x00000124 after using Verifier.

This has been happening for about a year, my brother told me that it was probably my power supply but after I looked into the error codes more I saw that these error codes are mostly for driver errors. This is where I was stumped. I know a little about computers but I had no idea how to find a corrupt driver or even how to find out if that was the problem. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hello and welcome Connor I take it is Connor I cannot see much in the dump files mate but you do mention your brother has queried the PSU now you can check that with this

You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device.

Recently I got a few games and when the games I used to play crashed or whatnot it would just close the game. Now I am getting BSOD and having it reboot my PC. I use Soluto to help me find what what might of caused the problem and this is what is sent to me :

Probably caused by: dxgkrnl!TdrResetFromTimeout Driver

The VIDEO_TDR_ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

Keep in mind I have two of the same graphics cards. I used to cross-fire but then Realized no games would play with it activated so I disabled them. After a while I tried messing with my setup so I could have three monitor setup ( two monitor and 1 40"HDTV. While im still using only two of the monitors I orignally got my first BSOD when i was trying to play a game on the TV monitor and no longer use the TV.

I am very out of touch with computer skills and I dont know anymore what else I should do to try and fix this problem. Ive thought about getting a new graphics card to try and solve the problem because for the last few years problems only seem to occur with the Card and nothing else but i could find another solution then spending money that would be great.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) 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!!!

* If you have Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*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 5-7 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, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

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.

I use the computer mostly for media storage and photo and video work, but occassionally play Civilization on it.

I built this computer nearly 5 years ago and have, over the years, had a few periods where I got BSODs. It turns out that when I originally built it, the heatsink was not seated properly. About a year ago, I added the H50 to my system and things were stable until recently.

To problem solve my current issue, I have run memtest 86 for three passes (about 6 hours) without error. (I also played with RAM timing settings and system voltage settings based on forum posts at the g.skill forum.) I ran prime95 overnight without error. I then figured the problem must be with my graphics card, so yesterday I went out and bought a new graphics card, but that did not fix the problem either.

WhoCrashed suggests the problem is a driver, not hardware, but doesn't say which driver. I've tried turning verifier on, but the system gets unusably slow and (perversely) fails to crash with verifier on. Perhaps I should just wait longer.

Thanks for any and all help and suggestions.

Hello everyone,
I have been getting BSOD errors for about a month now, I am at wits end with this machine and am suspecting that the motherboard or processors are failing.
My problem started about a month ago when after I installed an adobe flash update, whether the problem was caused directly by this update, I don't know. I experienced the first BSOD after I installed the update. The screen would freeze and a sound sample would repeat. At the time I was using Winxp Pro SP3, I also had Win7 and ubuntu installed. Windows XP would just BSOD after loging in, Windows7 would freeze at the log in screen, and ubuntu would not start at all.
I replaced my video card and installed an older one and stability seemed to be restored to the my system.
I decided to completely migrate to Windows 7 so I backed up my documents and deleted all of the OS' from my systems and installed Windows 7 Pro 32bit. But the problems still persisted. I get the BSOD mostly when I play video games (Heroes of Newerth in particular), when my system idles, and when I do simple tasks (like browsing the internet). The amount of time that elapses before I BSOD varies.
I thought it was an issue with my on-board sound and so I bought a new sound card but the problems still persists.

I have updated the BIOS, installed all the latest drivers, my memory passes memtest, and I have checked my hard drives for errors with the windows utilities. I am at a loss at to what is causing the problem.
Any help would be greatly appr... Read more

A:BSOD while idle and playing games.

Alas,
Looking through the invoices of my parts I noticed that the memory sticks I have are not as identical as I thought.
They are the same brand, same and same speed, however they have different latency and voltage operations. Their names vary slightly too.
I initially purchased the CM2x1024-6400C4, these two memory modules operate under 2.10V and have a CAS latency of 4-4-4-12.

Two years later I purchased CM2X1024-6400, these modules operate at 1.90V and have a CAS latency of 5-5-5-18.
This could be the problem to my system being unstable.
Now here is where the dilemma arises: As of now I have my motherboard to automatically control the latency and voltages of everything on my computer, I have never overclocked or messed with the latencies or voltages... If I lower the voltage of the old sticks then they would not operate with the same speed ... and if I increase the voltages of the new sticks, would they operate on the same speed? Keep in mind that I thought I had them on dual channel mode and each stick pair was in their designated memory channel.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
Your help would greatly be appreciated.

So far from what I am reading it looks like you haven't done any security updates, or windows updates at all.

Please do your windows updates.

Also uninstall and remove from the computer the Xbox 360 Controller.

Afterwards please post back results.

Welcome

Is there any particular reason for using windows xp?

The dump relates to your graphics card and its drivers. The issue of turning off and wont turn back on again is a hardware issue, probably a overheated/dying graphic card.

Does your motherboard have a onboard VGA slot? Connect there and see if this issue persists. What's the age of all the hardware?

Try installing latest video card drivers if possible:

Hi,

I seem to be getting somewhat random BSOD errors. As far as I have noticed they are all 0x0000003B.

It generally happens after playing a game for a while but the game doesn't seem to make a difference and sometimes it doesn't happen for days.

I have not installed any new hardware for over 6 months and also generally keep my drivers as up-to-date as I can.

I have also noticed that for some reason after a computer restart (or crash), sometimes after the Windows 7 logo appears and before the login screen sometimes my monitors stop receiving signal and it can take sometimes up to 7 minutes before they regain it and I am presented with the login screen.

Any help much appreciated.

A:BSOD randomly, error 0x0000003B

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (Cx05) 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!!!

* If you have Raid update its Driver.

Memtest.

*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 5-7 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, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

I have a fairly new bought Custom Build (about 3-4 months old) and it has always caused a BSOD if I leave the computer doing nothing for too long, I know this is not a temperature issue as I can leave it playing music or watching something and it's fine and temperatures never exceed 30-40 degree celcius. Over the past month however I have been having trouble playing all 3 witcher games and sometimes games such as Dark Souls 2 and Verdun where the computer will at random times cause a Blue screen and may not even leave a minidump with information of what has gone wrong, however the most common error has been a VIDEO TDR ERROR caused by the Nvidia driver named nvlddmkm.sys, I have always kept drivers up to date and have tried many different ideas in order to fix this error including making a nvlddmkm.sys.old file and using CMD to recreate it. I have done full scans and have found no viruses within the desktop and have no other faults other than trying to play games...on a gaming desktop! I have run the dm log collector and left the file attatched so that it can be looked at and will also leave a link to the spec and website where the desktop was bought from. I know the BIOS has not been setup up fully for this build and has been left for default however I know near to nothing on how to configure this and was not sure on the consequences of this. Thank you for anyone who has the time for this.

A:BSOD when being idle too long or playing certain games

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

I have ran RAM tests and hard drive checks and everything turned out well. I also have updated my graphics card driver just recently today. I installed all my drivers only about 3 days ago so it should all be up to date. I have gotten all the important windows updates as well.

Also, I am not sure if this is related, but sometimes while gaming the game just crashes randomly. Other games are fine while some just crash in the middle. Sometimes the game just crashes and sometimes I get the BSOD. Please help!!! I (have also checked the temperatures of pc and everything seems to be okay and not overheating)
