These crashes were caused by memory corruption. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


1-Memtest.
Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Did you run Memtest86+ for 7 passes yet? You posted within an hour that you had run it, and it takes ~7-10 hours on average to do 7 passes.

Edit: Also, pay very close attention to parts 2 and 3 of the Memtest86+ tutorial referenced by zigzag3143

Edit2: Your problem seems to be memory related, which is why we are stressing this test. It is possible you have a bad module/mismatched modules that are not compatible with each other or a bad memory module slot. Without running Memtest86+ for at least five passes (preferably seven to thoroughly test), it is impossible to tell whether it truly is a memory problem or something else underlying your BSODs.

Only one of these was with driver verifier enabled and it did not find a mis behaving driver.

The others still point to memory corruption.

Alright. Have you updated your BIOS recently? Another thing to do is install DirectX again since it is gaming related. Find the latest DirectX and see if you can repair your current installation (or if it is newer, install the newest version).

I've never updated a bios before and I'll try updating DX now.

To update your BIOS, find your computer model vendor's homepage, and see if they have a BIOS update for your model to flash the BIOS. If you have a custom built machine, go to the motherboard's manufacturer's homepage and see if there is a BIOS update to flash the BIOS for your motherboard.
