Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
Random BSOD


I'm having random Blue screens when I play games, it usually happends when I play GTA 4. It also happends when I leave the computer on for downloading at night.

I have absolutely no idea how to fix this. The error codes are random; in the most cases it's IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, sometimes it's SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION. I'm using Windows 7 64 bit right now but it happened with XP as well.

All drivers are up to date.

I put my videocard in another computer to see if it was a videocard problem, but that PC was fine. I have also bought another processor but the problem is still there. (Bought it for more speed)

PC temperatures are ok, processor never gets higher than 60 C and the videocard only gets to 70-80. (When playing a game).

By the way, sometimes the blue screens points out to "dxgmms1.sys" or something. But this does not always happen. Any thoughts on that file?

Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
