Windows 7: BSOD when playing games

28 Jun 2011   #11

windows 7 home 64bit

Ok, thank you all for the assistance and I will clean format and boot from a USB tomorrow morning. Following any further problems, I'll run a memtest and then drop the info it returns along with all the dumps posted already into a local computer shop and have them replace anything that turns out faulty.

After what I read I understand you get BSOD while testing with MemTest86? If this is the case then it is 100% hardware issue because no software is used while this test is running. FORMAT won't help you then.
Reasons for BSOD while using MemTest86
-faulty power supply
-faulty or dusty ram (see if it has dust on it but be careful not to remove it while the power chord is plugged in)
-another component like PCI card (not PCI-E but it could be the graphics card too)
-faulty motherboard
-faulty power supply to your computer. Not the PSU but could be wrong voltage/current coming to your computer.
Also bad memory could make a bad restore disc not burning the information right but more randomly .
