Could it be the cpu that failes while playing games ?
It run perfectly fine for a whole day while playing videos but when playing a game like vice city it freezes and then gives me a bsod

Multiple bsod, not related to drivers, i used driver verifier and it pointed to daemon tools, but i am sure that is not the cause, i will remove it just incase it is causing the problems, but i am 99% sure it is not

The crash you had still points to the memory. Can you post all your memory settings from the BIOS? DRAM voltage, timings, etc. Also, post all voltages corresponding to CPU and RAM.

Download and install CPUZ and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.



Also, there is a reason I have this next segment in my repertoire.

Please remove Daemon Tools, as it uses a driver called dtsoftbus01.sys that is known to cause BSODs.

I prefer TotalMounter as my CD/DVD virtualization software as it allows me to burn images to a virtual CD/DVD if I just want an ISO file instead of a disc, and it is free.

Many use MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor as well, which is also free.

Well the problem is with other mounting software, securom will detect the mounted drive.
I've wanted to play gta 4 without dvd so i downloaded a small image of the game but securom detects the mounting software.

Yeah, I had that problem with a game a couple years ago. I ended up just buying it on Steam to avoid the DVD hassle. It is annoying to have to buy a game twice due to companies employing paranoia tactics, but it can be worth it for convenience and not having to worry about the DVD damage mounting to a point that the game won't play. My DVD was literally falling apart just from spinning in my drives so much/clicking it into place in the drive so much (I played the game a lot). If there is a downloadable version of the game, that may be another option.

Yes i was planning to but due to financial problems i'll have to do with what i have.
In reply to your other post, i will do that if i can get the bios post screen, it seems i am having trouble with starting the pc.
Could a cpu cause these problems ?
I'll try to test with another cpu as soon as i can.

The most likely causes are (in this order): PSU, Motherboard, RAM, CPU. I usually put CPU last since it is the least likely component to fail (although I have seen it happen a few times during my time on these forums). The system not starting properly is generally a power supply failure resulting in not enough power to boot the system.

Yes but i am sure it is not the psu because it does the same thing when i disconnect all unnecessary things like vga, dvd drives, hard drive, i am gonna test another cpu in my mobo probably this weekend.
I am sure it is the mobo or cpu.

Did you determine whether it was the motherboard or CPU?

Yes, i bought another motherboard and the problem went away, still don't exactly know why it didn't work though.
I've been testing the current pc for like a week now, no problems.
