Windows 7: Random BSODs

Random BSODs

Hello
I've been getting all sorts of BSOD's when I'm playing games. It seems to be only on resources demanding games, like Starcraft 2, The Witcher 2, etc. I ran memtest overnight but it didn't detect any problems. Then I tried a fresh installation of Windows 7 on another hard drive, but the problem remained. My graphics card is new, but the problem was there with the older one, so I ruled that one out. The PSU is new too. I checked the temps and they're all fine. The only thing I can think of is motherboard or CPU, if it even is a hardware problem, but I need your skills to figure it out. I've attached the last minidumps I got.

Thanks in advance!

Hello N3cro, welcome to SF!

That's 4 different dmp codes/reasons in one day, one of wich is pointing to hw, rest could be hardware or drivers.

Highest chance is memory but you said you already tested that. Just checking though: did you run Memtest86+ for at least 5-6 passes (takes > 4 hours..)??
If so, and that did not fail, lets do the cpu/mobo:
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
Also, since one of the failing drivers is a standard Windows one:
Quote:
Please go to your Maintenance Center and check the Windows Update status. Make sure you are up to date, do them one by one manually if needed.
For help or reset see: Windows Update - Reset
You also seem to have problems with drivers of the Copy Protection platform dveloped by Tages SA. Please try to update: TAGES, the AAA Copy Protection System
