BSOD's while playing, various errors

Hello,

I bought this toshiba qosmio x775-q7170 laptop in march, 12th, Windows 7 home premium 64 bit (OEM)
Since last few days of april, it begun to show some errors while i was gaming, first it was justcause 2 before I first formatted, than was Walking Dead and the last game I tried was Deus Ex. still trying...(note: i played a few other games before any sign of error)
The error consisted of distorted image of the locked screen in game like the image attached, and some strange sound coming from the speakers
I usually play about 10 to 20 minutes before each problem.

Than, I get to force shut down or some times i get a BSOD, with diferent codes, each time. It comes usually directly from the game or when I'm trying to initialize my system again after I forced shut down from an error. If i wait a little the system initialize normally without showing any kind of error than the Windows notice...

Let me know of any doubt or information needed of solving this problem
Thanks in advance
-kadmo

The most recent crash was Related to iaStor.sys Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver - ia32.. i would re-install newest and if you continue to crash we can look more closely.

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
Driver Reference Table (DRT)

If you do the same things (installing the same software, having the same drivers, over clocking) you will have the same problems.

Chances are formatting wont help, but good luck

You were right, i still got the same problem. I tried to recover to the out of the box state, when i first bought it, and when it still could play my games... this time however i didn't let windows update itself in hope it could be a windows update that started all this.

but why it didn't worked? it should have worked, as i only installed the game...

Could it be a hardware problem? if so how could i be sure of it...

in any way this info could help, my brother bought a very similar model of mine, and his's didn't show a sign of problems.

Similar doesnt mean exactly the same.

I am not even inferring it is a hardware problem.

All I am saying is you can re-install forever but if you keep putting back the same things, the same thing (BSOD) will happen.

Might be the game. Does it crash anywhere else?

I also have a similar problem while browsing.

I dont think its the game, as the games i could play before now give me the same problems.
