Windows 7: BSODs while gaming

BSODs while gaming

The computer runs absolutely fine doing anything but playing games. It seems to happen more often when the game has to load more intensely, or there's more on screen.

I recently reformatted, and had no BSODs for a month or so, but now they're back in full force.

I hope I uploaded the zip correctly, let me know if you need any other info, any help would be appreciated.

There is no dump file in the attachment
Update your graphic drivers

Ok my bad, system wasn't set up to create minidumps... I'll wait for it to crash again and then attach that.
It's not my drivers though, updated everything I possibly could and it still crashed.

Here are my dumps, had to hunt around and rename them after each crash, because for some reason I don't have a minidump folder and it refuses to write there.

Anyway, if someone could help me out, that would be great

Your dump files are unreadable but your graphic drivers were involved in the crash (nvlddmkm.sys)
Is this an official version of Windows 7? , your system files are different

- Boot into safe mode with networking
- Uninstall the Nvidia drivers
- Use driver sweeper to remove leftover Nvidia display driver files Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
- Reboot in safe mode with networking
- Install the latest drivers Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers
- Reboot into normal mode

Test your RAM RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Ok, well I went through all those steps, totally uninstalled the drivers and got new ones. Still crashed within a couple mins of opening a game.

Also ran memtest, no errors for 19 passes...

I'm not sure if this Windows 7 is official or not, I bought this computer second hand, but it's less than a year old and was very well maintained.

What else could be causing it? And why are the dumps unreadable?

Bump, can anyone tell me what might be causing this, or what I should do next?

Hello,

Could you upload your full memory dump to Rapidshare? Go to C:\Windows, right-click on the memory.dmp file, and select Send to > New compressed folder. Then upload that zip folder to Rapidshare, and post a link here.
