Windows 7: BSOD playing BF3 error 0x0000001a

BSOD playing BF3 error 0x0000001a

-Retail version Windows 7 home premium 64bit
-Hardware is about 8 months old

Hi guys I never thought I'd have to resort to this forum. I have a very minimal tech understanding. Recently (1 month ago when running Vista 64bit) my computer had started to blue screen when playing games like Battlefield 3 and Dota 2. I updated all drivers and ran Windows Memory Diagnostics advanced tests on my ram which had several passes without errors. It's killing me because I've never had any problems with my computers reliability, it would run on hours playing games like WoW, BF2, BF3.

Frustrated I installed a new hard drive and did a fresh install of Windows 7. Still the same problem. One thing to note is, when first booting up and playing a BF3, I can play for hours without any BSOD. However, I noticed if I play after waking my computer from sleep mode as opposed to a fresh boot up, it will crash within 1-10 minutes.

Thank you very much for your help.

Only one minidump in your report and it's memory management. That is either bad RAM or a bad driver

Code:
ASACPI.sys   Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005 (42476C4C)
A known BSOD maker in Windows 7. The 2005 version of this driver is known to cause BSOD on Windows 7 systems.
Download the ATK0110 utility from here - ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
Expand the "Utilities" tab and find "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit" and download it
After you install it browse to C:\windows\system32\drivers and check the properties of ASACPI.sys and make sure it now says 2009.

Please run these tests and report back the results
1. Memtest86 - Run for 7-8 passes - RAM - Test with Memtest86+
2. Prime95 - Run all three tests for 3-4 hours each or until fail - Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
3. Hard drive scan usings SeaTools - SeaTools for Windows | Seagate - Both long and short tests

That has the same minidump as the first report.

If you get any new BSOD, then upload a report

Hey there, after running memtest it turns out that one of my sticks of ram had several errors. I replaced the ram and I am still having bsod. I checked both of the ram slots with a healthy ram so I think it was just the ram. I also ran the stress tests and the hard drive extended tests, no errors or problems to report.

Don't know if it will be useful, but my computer only crashes on BF3 upon waking from sleep mode. From a fresh boot up there aren't any problems.

Here is the most recent dump file. Thank you.

Hey there, I ran driver verifier for a few days without any crashes. For some reason my computer stopped BSOD-ing. I've only had 1 crash since the last post. Just wanted to say thanks for the help.

For anyone that may read this post, running Battlefield 3 as administrator has seemed to fix the Memory_management BSOD. I'm not sure why but I guess it's worth a try. Again thanks!

new error code

Hi again, my friend was trying to playing a game on my comp when it crashed again. I suspect it might be a driver of some sort this time. Any help would be much appreciated. There should be 3 minidump files in this one. Thank you for your time
