BSOD whilst playing various games. Also happens when not playing games

Question: BSOD whilst playing various games. Also happens when not playing games

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

Preferred Solution: BSOD whilst playing various games. Also happens when not playing games

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

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

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

Windows 7 . .- x64- the original installed OS on the system- an OEM- Bought in September 2010- The OS is the original installed and has not been re-installed

I get a blue screen of death whilst playing the sims. It appears after a while and so I thought it was video card related but reinstalling the video card and updating the directx version has done nothing.
The OS has been unotuched on the laptop since it was bought in September and there hasn't been any problems with it other than this.
Any help would be much appreciated

If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks in advance,
Mick

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

Hello all,

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.

Hi folks.
I have an annoying issue that has surfaced with my PC in the past 2 months. Basically, whenever I am playing a game, after an indeterminate period of time, my PC will just reboot itself with absolutely no error message.
This is happening now in 9/10 instances. I have disabled automatic rebooting in system properties to try and coax a BSOD, but nothing on that front.
This is purely conjecture on my part, but it feels like this may be a PSU issue; I have my doubts here though, since this is an issue that has only just surfaced over the past couple of months, so lack of wattage doesn't seem right.
Overheating also doesn't feel like the issue; CPU is liquid cooled and have numerous fans. Lords knows how many times I have also cleaned PC out.
I don't want to jump the gun and buy a replacement piece of hardware without some advice, so anything you guys can offer would be fantastic :)
UPDATE Tried to run an OCCT PSU test, rebooted within a second.

Hi,

During certain games I've been getting BSOD. It can happy at any point during these 4 games where the game freezes then windows crashes and displays WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE ERROR.

The games are: Grand theft auto V, battlefield 1, Total war: Warhammer and Arma 3 (rarely)

I've done a few fixes such as re-downloaded NVidia, reset PC to original settings and so on so fourth. Tried turning off over-clocks in my PC and so on.

Talked with Microsoft support and it may be a 3rd party driver on my PC?

Hello!

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

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

By high-end games, I mean relative to my computer's current hardware.

Yesterday, or on 9/11/2015, I encountered 4 BSODs while playing Terraria and Team Fortress 2: 2 KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK FAIL BSODs, 1 IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and the other I don't remember. I suspect it may have something to do with the DirectX drivers or my current AMD drivers (the latest from their website), but I'm not entirely sure. I do, however, have the debug info:

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

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

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

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

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

Answer:BSOD 0124 whilst playing any games after recent motherboard change.

From your post. Please explain with more detail.

Did you do a Clean Install of Windows after the new hardware were installed?

Could you show what power supply is in your computer in My System Specs.

I'm no BSOD expert but those are a few things I noticed.

There seems to be a lot of information on the web about this and currently I'm confused as to what I should do next. The PC is brand new (Oct 2006) it's a Zoostorm top of the range one (Dual core, Nvidia 7900gtx, creative labs xfi soundblaster platinum etc). I don't have much loaded on it. I've got F-secure (internet security), XP home, MS office 2003 and so far games such as FEAR, Prey, BF2142, Unreal Tournament 2003, and a few Star wars games for my boys.The symptoms seem to be that it randomly reboots whilst playing games. Sometimes it's fine whilst other times it will suddenly reboot. It's usually in the first 5-10 minutes after starting. Once it's done it (maybe a few times) it then seems to settle down and is fine.I've loaded the latest drivers for the sound and graphics card, I've run memtest (and found no memory problems). Does anybody else have any suggestions?

Answer:My PC keeps rebooting whilst playing games

Check your power supply. It may be failing and the extra power demanded by the graphics card when you fire up a game is just enough to push it over the edge.

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

Answer:PC Crashing Whilst Playing Games

Hey,

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

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

Okay so here's the deal. I've just got a new psu so I'm assuming it isn't that.. it's 800w. My computer should be cool enough but if anyone can recommend a program that will actually save the records so I can view them after it shuts off that'd be appreciated.

My computer's just been transported from the UK to Arizona, my new home. I bought a new power supply due to different wattage, same as my last one 800w. It shuts off when playing games and after a while working in 3ds max and udk.

My specs are as follows:

AMD FX-8120 Eight-Core Processor ~3.1GHz
MSI MS7596 motherboard
12GB DDR3 RAM (Normally 16GB, one stick didn't make the journey)
EVGA NVIDIA GTX 550Ti
500GB SATA HDD
LG Blu-ray rewriter

I think that's it.. I may have missed something but I don't think I did.. The cpu is cooled by an arctic freezer 13 so I don't believe that's the issue. I've cleaned out all dust and I have this case with front, back and one top fan installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Welcome to Major Geeks.

Double check the NVIDIA website to be sure you have the latest drivers installed. Don't use EVGA's website, it isn't always as up-to-date as NVIDIA's.

If this doesn't solve the problem, re-post here and we can look at some other possibilities.

Hello everyone,

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

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

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

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

Thanks alot for your help,
JollySam

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

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

Thanks guys!

Hello, 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

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

Hey folks,
I've got this really annoying & frustrating issue and I'm left clueless.
It all started when I decided to give Napoleon Total War after quite a few months of not touching it.
As it started up, in the menu I noticed the mouse being extremely laggy and then screen flickering to black.
Whilst watching the opening cutscene intro the sound cut off whilst the movie continued to play and then the sound came back.
During gameplay the game would flicker to black and back to normal again.
I never had any of these issues before and as far as I know nothing has changed since to make it no longer work properly.
I updated drivers (I've got 560ti) and the flickering is still there and it even giving me CTD's. Originally any other game was fine it was just Napoleon Total War, so uninstalled it, deleted the mods I had on it, and redownloaded it. Still the same.
I verified cache. Still the same.
I Googled and found various solutions for similar issues (not sure if they are the same) and still getting no where.
Something has gone awry and I'm not sure how it suddenly started or even how to fix it.
Spent many days trying to solve it, with the issue getting worse to then getting back to where I started but still not fixed.
Now the issue seems to be effecting every game, with flickering to black screen often and stuttering whilst playing.
I've got a feeling that it may have had to do with the drivers, and perhaps I didn't uinstall them properly when trying to rollback and now any... Read more

Double click MBRCheck.exe to run (vista and Win 7 right click and select Run as Administrator)
It will show a Black screen with some information that will contain either the below line if no problem is found:
Done! Press ENTER to exit...

Or you will see more information like below if a problem is found:
Found non-standard or infected MBR.
Enter 'Y' and hit ENTER for more options, or 'N' to exit:

Either way, just choose to exit the program at this point since we want to see only the scan results to begin with.

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.

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.

Hi - 2 problems. When playing King games such as Candy Crush or Scrabble, after a short while, the screen jumps a few centimeters. It usually moves up and I have to use two fingers on my touchpad to set it in the right place again.Also, and this may be related, after a while of playing a game the cursor becomes erratic. I cannot move it properly and it often increases the zoom on Google Chrome. If I do nothing for around 5 seconds, I can then use the cursor again as normal.I'm wondering if this is due to the constant moving around of the cursor when playing such games. But this shouldn't happen! I had no problem with my previous Samsung laptop.Any advice welcome...

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

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

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad q9550 @ 2.83 ghz

GPU: Radeon HD 5770

Mem: 4 Gigs of Memory

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005


Code:
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:




Quote:
- 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.

I've been having this issue for nearly a year now (probably around 9 months). It started after my little sister made me get a virus by her trying to download something onto my laptop. I've since taken it to a reputable computer shop as well as followed instructions from other computer wizs and I think it's no longer there. Issue is, my computer has kind of developed another problem after that. It freezes on it's own sometimes, when I pick it up or even when it's on a desk and immobile. It would also freeze when I play a game sometimes, loud buzzing sound as the game continues in loops I believe. I had BSOD problems earlier this year that was solved (Apparently. I haven't gotten any in about 4-5 months) when I had Windows 7 but this issue still persists.

When it would freeze and I manually turn off my computer and turn it back on, the laptop would sometimes say no wifi could be detected. At all. Not mine, not my neighbors, nothing. I've never really taken it out of the house so I don't know if it'd act the same elsewhere. I would then shut it down and take out the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in. Sometimes the wifi would work then or I'd go connect it to my Internet Modem and the wifi would start working over there too.

So I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It's not overheating as I had it cleaned less than 4 months ago by a professional. I've had this laptop for two years and I really wanted it to last me at least 4 because I'll be going into an ani... Read more

Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing.

So I recently opened my CPU because it was lagging and I thought maybe a little clean up might do the trick. So I softly brushed the drivers inside the CPU to get some dust off. However, when I turned on my PC, it seems that whenever I watch videos or play games, a loud crackling sound comes out from my speakers. I don't know what is causing this.

I have tried disabling my drivers (sound and display) but to no avail. However, if I mute the volume on my sound driver, the sound disappears. Which lead me to the conclusion that it might be a conflict of sound and display.

Since the problem only occured when I opened my CPU and cleaned it, it might also be a wiring problem or something.

Can someone help me on this?

Hi, Good day.

I was playing different games such as FF12 through PCSX2, League of Legends, and Rohan Online when my computer restarted. It happened before though not frequent. But last week and today I've encountered it again. It occurs randomly when I'm playing most of the time when I'm playing full screen. After reboot there's a message that the windows recovered unexpectedly then the problem says bluescreen though I didn't really saw any bluescreen.

Here are the things that I did to solve the problem:

- Reinstalled windows, changed it from ultimate to home basic
- memtest (no errors)
- updated nvidia driver to latest (blue screen still occurred, so I've decided to change it back to the old version where I encounter the problem less) I used driver sweeper.
- Burn test gpu and cpu, It didn't occur.

Can anyone kindly point me to the right direction?

Hello, if this its in the wrong section I apologize, however I do not believe this to be a game specific issue. When playing a select few games (most notably Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 on multiplayer, Half Life 2 and a couple others) I will be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours into the game and I get a BSOD with no text. I restart and everything is fine, until I play another game. Counterstrike Source works just fine, as does Battlefield 2 and 2142 on single player, Combat Arms, World of Warcraft, and F.E.A.R. I cleaned out the inside of my case for dust and stuff with canned air, and I swapped my two 512MB RAM chips because it seemed like a RAM error to me (heavy resource games are the only ones doing it) and instead of 1024MB of ram my computer showed only 512MB of ram. Ok so my RAM was bad. i went to Fry,s and bought a two pack of 1GB sticks of DDR3200 RAM and a ThermalTake Northbridge chipset cooler (the fan on the stock cooler was almost gone I figured it might be another problem). Installed both and it still does it. Next I thought it might be old or bad drivers, so I found all the updated drivers (my ATI card, motherboard chipset and sound card), still doing it. I looked in the BIOS and all the temperatures and voltages were just fine (temperatures were 47C for CPU and 49C for chipset).

Answer:[Help] BSOD 124 When playing BF4 and other games

Hi

STOP 0x124 is always hardware related. Among various reasons, Overclocking is the number one reason for this particular BSOD so the first thing you should do is disabling overclocking, voltage tweaking of CPU, RAM and let the system run on stock values (at least as a test).

Whether to overclock or not is your choice but you should understand a fact that overclocking a Core i7 CPU is not going to boost a single FPS in any PC games. Almost all PC games are GPU centric and even the most CPU demanding games only require half the power your CPU offers. OC will benefit in case of certain apps like CAD programs, video rendering etc as they are blindly tied to the clock speed of CPU. But PC games seems to benefit from the number of cores as they are ported from eight core PS3.

Disable OC and check whether it helps. You can re-enable it at any time once the root cause is found.

Hello all.

I have recently bought a computer and played several games with it.

Last week I started to play Metal Gear Solid and while in my playing, BSOD happened and I was not able to continue on playing as BSOD keep coming after restarting the computer and the game again.

The attached file is the BSOD information, and could somebody tell me the reason of causing the BSOD.

Thank you very much.

Hi,

Let me straightly get into the point here. I have been getting random BSODs only during gaming and that too with the error code 1000007e for most of the time. The BSODs are usually caused by dxgkrnl.sys or nvlddmkm.sys or dxgmm1.sys or ntoskrnl.sys.

Yesterday i was playing Battlefield 4 for 2 hours without any crashes. I didn't got BSODs. Then after beating the game, i have decided to play GTA 4 and installed it. (I haven't installed any patch though). Alongside i downloaded SIMS 4 from Origin and was playing it. Nothing happened. And today, when i launched GTA 4, i got BSOD within 5 minutes. I thought it was just GTA 4's problem and thus i have decided to test it with Sims 4 and i got the same BSOD within 30 minutes. I knew something was wrong here. I just don't get it. Yesterday my PC was fine and after installing GTA 4, BOOM! BLUE SCREEN! Out of nowhere.

I know it's definitely not a hardware problem. They don't die out suddenly. And weird that i got this BSOD only after installing these two games. I thought ORIGIN and SIMS 4 was the culprit here. So i uninstalled it and the problem still remains. I haven't uninstalled GTA 4 though.

Things i tried:
-Tried different versions of nvidia drivers by using clean installation in safe mode. I uses driver sweeper for this.
-Ran driver verifier and flushed out that '000.fcl' was causing BSOD on startup and thus i have uninstalled cyberlink Power DVD. But the problem still remains
-Check my HDD for bad sectors. No errors ... Read more

Hi DoctorFlash,

Welcome to the 10forums.

nvlddmkm.sys is the Nvidia Video driver.
Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Please try updating your BIOS.

Hello!

I am getting BSOD errors on occasion, as far as I can tell only when playing games.
I was having this happen a few months ago and was going to post, but it stopped suddenly - until yesterday! Now I've had another BSOD yesterday & today. Yesterday happened while playing Skyrim. Today happened while playing Age of Empires Online. I have previously tried updating my graphics drivers - I have *not* done so recently before these past two days, when the crashes started again.

One thing to note: It seems very random.. I can play a game for hours on end, and have no problems..

I tried to follow the guidelines for posting, I hope it is all correct.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.


tl;dr - BSOD while playing games. Can play for hours without it happening. Cannot reliably reproduce. Has not happened outside of a game. Thanks for your help!

Answer:BSOD while playing various games

You appear to be running a DELL OEM on a retail motherboard, which is not possible unless it employs a hackers activation bypass. There is no point troubleshooting this until we can be sure the problems aren't caused by the counterfeit installation.

My recommendation is to purchase a genuine Windows 7, then format and reinstall Windows 7.

Greetings, I have a problem with my pc. Generally I can handle most of the problems that I encounter, but this one is starting to get to me. I BSOD while playing games, at first I thought it was just World of Warcraft since it's the game I play most. But lately it's starting to happen during others. I updated my Radeon HD 6850 to the newest drivers thinking that it would fix it, but it didn't. Sometimes I can play for hours and hours and not have a single problem, and other times it's crashing after a few minutes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

EDIT: I would also like to say that my pc kind of stutters right before the BSOD.

Hey all,

I would sincerely appreciate it if you could help me with the following problem:

Only 2 months ago I got a newly built pc (the information you can find in the dxdiag report). From the beginning, my pc started doing strange things while playing games. Almost every time I play a game, it crashes at random times and tells me the game doesn't respond anymore and the game exits. I tried to resolve this problem with lots of things, most important things include: updated my video card drivers, updated my motherboard drivers, clean install of windows 7 home premium, clean install of all the games. At the end I even went to the store the video card was bought and although they couldn't find a problem, I got a new video card but unfortunately after a couple of days of great gaming, the games started crashing again. BSOD only appear once in a while, but they get me worried even more. I also checked the CPU and GPU temperatures, they're both fine, never reaching above 60 degrees celsius. I did a 3D vantage Benchmark test, it got me a score of P9093, not sure what it exactly means but I think it's OK for the system I have.

So my question would be.. what could possible cause these BSOD's and crashes? It happens to all games I played till now, i.e. Assassin's Creed I and II, Tomb Raider Underworld, Need For Speed Undercover and Pro Street, Prince of Persia games.

I attached the dxdiag report.

Checkup hi and welcome to Seven Forums

You have two significant problems.
1-ASACPI.SYS a major cause of BSOD's in the 2005 rev.

The pre 2009 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.

The 2005 (and easrlier) version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUS teK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P7P55D LE

Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" (it's about the 12th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

2-Your video driver. Re-install newest using this method
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hello,
Dump blames Kaspersky. Record the serial for your Kaspersky and keep in reference. Then uninstall Kaspersky.
Replace with MSE, please: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120% needs to be removed - as they are a known cause of BSOD with Win 7. Run this SPTD uninstaller when it is removed: DuplexSecure - Downloads
Select Uninstall; do not select reinstall

Use MagicDisc as an alternative: Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview

If you are overclocking anything - please stop and return to default values.

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

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

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

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

First of all, first time posting a thread here so don't judge me all to harshly if I do something incorrect.

I am getting BSOD's while playing several different games such as Sleeping dogs, SMITE and War Thunder. Also has started to happen while I am using ACDSee.

Hello Qyratar, Welcome to SF

Afraid there is nothing specific we can tell you without any dump files other than the fact that 0x124 = WHEA uncorrectable error = hardware issue BSOD Index

I can watch series (both HD and non-HD) for days straight, but when I play a game like Cod4 or Guitar Hero, I usually get a BSOD after about 30-60 minutes. Also, my CPU fan is failing right now, while it did work when I booted up my PC, which probably means it has something to do with my CPU (overheating?). I already switched my GTX 460 graphics card with an old GTX 280 graphics card, but that didnt fix the problem which means it probably isnt my GPU. The Gamecube/wii emulator Dolphin gave me a BSOD after 2 minutes of playing, and as far as I know dolphin is way more intensive than guitar hero or cod 4 because its an emulator. I also converted a 15-20 minute video with a video converter so I could watch it on my phone, which didnt give me a BSOD. Hot CPU tester pro 4 though did give me a BsoD after 30 minutes while running the CPU burn-in tool (running on 1 thread, i couldnt select more threads because i used the lite version instead of the full paid program).

The SF diagnostics tool dumps are inserted as an attachment.

any help would be grateful.

I would definitely say you need to replace that cpu and/or gpu fan(whichever is applicable); because if it only works at certain times; the times that it is not working can cause damage to the processor and or the component(s) that a... Read more

After playing a game for a while, I get a BSOD...

After reading the analysis, I guessed there was a problem with my video card driver but it's up to date. So maybe you guys could find the other thing!

Thanks

Answer:BSOD playing any games

Like your self help.
Well done!
But....
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.

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.

Hello,

I've been getting BSODs since upgrading to Win8 last year but after a while I decided to format my HDD and get back to Win7 hopping it would help with the blue screens. It didn't.

It only seems to happen when I play relatively demanding games after 1 hour or so... So, Dota 2, CS:GO and even WoW, and yet I can play Hearthstone for hours with no problem. Does that mean it's a memory problem?

If any further step is required to make your life easier, please ask and I will do/give anything needed!

First of all, the display driver version applied there is a bad one.

I've been having this problem a lot, and I've tried a lot to fix it. From updating all drivers I possibly could, to installing the latest version of my motherboard, and to reinstalling Windows 7. During playing certain games, my computer just loves to BSoD on them, and it's always the same error, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I'm getting annoyed at trying to fix this without completing anything, so I hope that the people of this forum are able to help me.
 
Games that are being effected:
Far Cry 3 (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)
Probably some other ones that I may have forgotten, recovering from a sickness so my mind isn't exactly running that well either heh. 
 
BSoD info:

 
Speccy Report: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/GhkRVd0xuSCpqJMQFskCK4q
 
If anything else is needed I will edit/post. 
 
Just got a new update from my Graphics Driver so I'll be installing that.

Answer:BSOD while playing games

The dumpfile is

*******************************************************************************

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff802cce84037, ffffd00023f9cd50, 0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiPrcbInGroupAffinity+7 )

BUGCHECK_STR: 0x3B

PROCESS_NAME: NetworkGenie.exe

Sadly the dumpfile does not point to something specific.
The only lead maybe the procesname Networkgenie. This is part of MSI Command center.

Driver Description: MSI Afterburner driver (known BSOD issues with Windows) Also found to be a part of MSI Live Update 5, MSI Super Charger & MSI Smart Utilities.

Recently (Nov 2014) there have been numerous instances of this driver in memory dumps. Analysis reveals that they are scattered throughout the filesystem by the installed MSI command utilities. For now I suggest uninstalling them all.
