Windows 7: BSOD Playing Most Games

06 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
BSOD Playing Most Games

I recently downgraded drivers to 295.73 to solve the pink screen issue with my GTX 550ti, and my games began randomly closing with no error. It is only steam games that are graphics intensive. The main two I play are Skyrim and Far Cry 2. When I played Medieval II it never crashed on me. I also had no errors with a non steam game, Civilization 4. All games are played on max settings.

I grew tired of the constant closings with no error, so I just went back to the new 296.10 drivers. I began playing Skyrim again and within 5 minutes I get a BSOD.

My system specs:
Intel Core i3 2120 3.3GHz
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1333MHz
EVGA GTX 550ti FPB (I have OC'd it before but not in a while and I got no errors when it was. This is happening on stock speeds.)
1TB WD Caviar Black SATA III
ASRock H61M/U3S3
485 Watt PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I play all games at max settings on a 1920x1080 resolution connected via DVI.
Case is very cool, cannot be over heating. Temps always below 65c.

Here is the error I get when Windows recovers:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

If the problem persists, check Windows Update for an updated video driver.

Re-install or install the latest drivers for your display card. Your current drivers may be corrupt and/or outdated. Use the following method to re-install the drivers.
  1. Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. Click Uninstall a program
  5. For NVIDIA:
    • Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
    • Restart your computer
    • Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel
    • If any remain of the above, uninstall one at a time
    • If asked to restart after uninstalling any of the above, do so, and continue uninstalling any remaining NVIDIA items until all are removed
  6. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  7. Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts
