Windows 7: Consistent BSOD when gaming

Consistent BSOD when gaming

Hello, I am getting consistent BSODs after a few hours of gaming. Has happened while playing Rage, and more consistently when playing Skyrim.

I have never gotten BSODs in any other situation.

From this, I suspect these BSODs are either GPU or RAM related. Recently got a new GTX 460 1GB and 8GB of RAM have noticed the BSODs more frequently. I don't think it's an overheating CPU as the temperatures seem fine, but who knows?

After a recent BSOD, my monitor would not turn off. Displayed a black screen until I unplugged the power. Now, the monitor will not go into "power save" mode when the computer is turned off or asleep, nor will it go into power save mode when connected to a different computer.

Running a retail version of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on custom built hardware (i7 875k, P55 motherboard, 8GB RAM, GTX 460 1GB.)

I have attached my Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2 folder. However, please disregard the few (I think 3 or 4?) DMP files created BEFORE October 2011 as that was with slightly different hardware.

Thank you.

The newest crash was Related to SCMNdisP.sys NDIS User mode I/O Driver from Windows (R) Codename Longhorn DDK provider.

Unless absolutely necessary I would remove it at least to test. Yours if from 2007.

OK, thank you. Will remove that driver as I am not even sure what it's for.

What about the other crashes? They presumably were not all caused by the same driver?

Still need more help with this. Removing driver doesn't seem to have helped.
