BSOD! Happening while playing games.

I've built a new pc about 2-3 months ago. Started getting some bluescreens, been trying to follow ppls advice. Been the bluescreen keeps happening more and more now. Getting really desperate dunno what to do..

I've ran memtest86 on my ram (just 1 4gb in atm, thought something was wrong with other one)
0 errors. I've also tried Driver programs, that are suppose to find the newest drivers etc.

Dunno if its relevant, but the sound has made a funny noice, then stopped working. And i've had to restart cpu to make it work again.

How many passes of memtest did you run?

What were the results of driver verifier? None of the included DMP's had verifier turned on when they occurred.


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



1-Memtest.


*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.


RAM - Test with Memtest86+




2-Driver verifier

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).
Quote:


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.

Hello, I've been getting a similar problem. BSODs when playing games. How can I get any useful information from my minidump files? Is there anyway I can figure out what's wrong just by looking at it?

You would look at: Crash and lockup debug 'How To' - Windows 7 Forums

If you want further help learning, I suggest you start a new thread as this one should be dedicated to the original poster.

Also, if you end up needing help with your own BSOD, please start a new thread following the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

The BSODs run with verifier point to a system file cdd.dll, and your nVidia graphics card.
1. You should run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker, and you may have to run it three times to resolve all issues.
2. You should update your nVidia driver as follows:
a. Download and install Driver Sweeper
b. Download the latest driver for your nVidia card
c. Click Start Menu
d. Right Click My Computer
e. Click Manage
f. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
g. Click the + next to Display adapter
h. Right click your device
i. Click Uninstall
j. Check the box to Delete driver software for the device
k. Click OK
l. Restart your computer in safe mode
m. Run Driver Sweeper, select nVidia drivers, analyze, clean
n. Restart your computer
o. Install the latest drivers
Update to SP1

You are currently still running verifier: the crash you received is typically indicative of a memory incompatibility. As you have already run and passed Memtest86+, I would suggest running without verifier and see if your original issue was resolved. If it continues, post back any more crash reports and we will look further into it.
