Windows 7: BSOD after playing Minecraft

Alright It was working for a bit but now it's doing it again. Just a little less frequent. It'll still do it after about 30-45min of gameplay. Mainly Team Fortress 2, Grand Theft Auto 4, and Mount and Blade. All quite different games so I think it's not the games themselves that are crashing as the crashing is all the same type of crashing.

It'll freeze and the sound will stutter for a second or two and then after about 15min it'll freeze and stutter until I turn the PC off or until I bring up task manager but even all that does is minimize the screen and it doesn't come up for like 10 mins.

May be time for a fresh install: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

If you are against doing so, you could try a Repair Install instead.

If you need installation media for either, steps 1-3 of the clean reinstall link will provide the media and backup steps. I recommend backing up important data before doing either, as well.

Yeah I've been wanting to do a fresh install but I have a lot of media as this is my computer not only for gaming but for recording too. Tons of files that I wouldn't even know where to start to back up. I may try it in a few days since the crashing is getting to the better of me. Thanks for the help. I'll let you guys know if I'm still having problems after a repair install.

If the repair install did not resolve the issue, try uninstalling and re-installing the applications causing problems.

Have you done so since the repair install? If so, it may come down to when you are able to backup your media and re-install Windows 7. Keep in mind that you could also create a new partition for your data and move your media to that and re-install Windows in the Windows partition. That is how I have my system set up so it is much easier to do a fresh install if necessary.

I keep movies, music, pictures, installation files, etc. on a separate partition. I have not bothered moving my users files and just do not use the users folders for Documents, Music, etc. but that is also an option. User Profile - Change Default Location

I do not recommend changing the default location for users, though. I have seen it cause some strange side effects for some users. I find it much easier just to move the data itself and avoid using my user profiles for storing anything other than application data. Most users on here prefer Partition Wizard for creating new partitions. I have had good success myself with PartedMagic.

Hello kylendm. Could you do me a favor and let me know the make and model of your Power Supply Unit?

My power supply is this:
Seasonic S12II-620Bronze(SS-620GB Active PFC)

Also I might try partitioning. The more I wonder the more I think it may be a power issue in this apartment.

Here's what I thought for the past month or two now.

I do a lot of audio recording and such and I have an audio interface called the Focusrite Saffire Pro24. It's a firewire interface and is using power straight from the computer. It has an external power supply too and I've been thinking two things.

1. Insufficient power from the computer is making the interface cut out a lot and that may be conflicting with games and programs from it being cut out. (it never says it's lost the signal to the interface but i'm not sure)

2. The power from the apartment might be bad and might be giving the computer more or less voltage than necessary.

These are just thoughts but I'm willing to try anything you guys are going to give me and I'll give you all the information you need. I did go to schooling for computers and I am studying electrical engineering and am stumped by my own computer haha. Thanks so much so far guys. You helped me get rid of the damn blue screens and now it's just this weird freezing that's been going on since before the blue screens.
