lets see I reinstalled windows 7 with sp1 this time around. I might have had a corrupt install.

Im now using windows 7 ultimate sp1.

So far so good no more BSOD but all of my games crash to the desktop now. I think its a driver problem still. Let me see what i can do.

Yeah i did a clean install with driver format

I just downgraded to a 2011 driver. Played Total War: Shogun 2 for maybe an hour and a half before i experienced a crash. (Before it would crash while loading a battle).

Civ 5 still crashes a lot. but i think its because its a terribly coded game.

League of legends still crashes.

Does the whole computer crash giving a BSOD, or does just the game crash?

Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      Tim-PC
Description:
The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume \Device\HarddiskVolume2.
  • Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log.
    For any drives that do not give the message:
    Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
    run disk check again as above. In other words, if it says:
    Windows has made corrections to the file system
    after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

  • Run both short and long tests on the hard disk using SeaTools.

Alright, the other errors were cleaned up. What were the results of the short and long tests with SeaTools?

Your crashes and freezes are still indicating hard disk problems.
  • warning   Warning
    Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

    Check the connectors for the hard disk and motherboard. Make sure everything is connected solidly. To be sure, disconnect all cables and then reconnect.

    As you add and remove hardware, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.
