Windows 7: BSOD While playing Multiple Games

BSOD While playing Multiple Games

Hi.

I've been having issues with a computer I've built recently. Whenever I play games like WoW, Killing Floor, and now Diablo 3... I'll be able to play for awhile, but maybe after 30min to an Hour my computer will just crash. Black Screen on monitors, sounds coming from speakers (no music continues normally. It's more like the last sound going "ErerrrrrrRGghhhhh" lol). No blue screens or anything.

Now... I originally thought it could be a GPU issue. But i've already RMA'ed one card, and gotten a new one. This one has run pretty well so far. But I don't know. I'd feel awkward RMAing another card.

I've performed Stress tests on both my CPU and RAM for at least 4hours on each with no errors coming up for either.

SO I am kind of stumped. I was reading "BSOD while playing games" and thought my issue was a bit similar.

I went through the steps that writhziden had posted in that thread. Disk Check - I had no errors on any of my drives. SFC - I had ran that before a few times. And finally the Verifier, which caused my system to crash in regular start-up. But it was fine in safe mode.

SO yea... I'm looking for any help that might help me resolve my issue with black screening while playing games.

Windows 7 . . .
- 64 Bit Ultimate OEM
- i5 2500k -CPU
- ASUS P8z68-V/hen3 -Motherboard
- Radeon HD 7870 -GPU
- Corsair Professional 850w PSU

Computer is about 2months old now. I sunk a lot of money into it... I just want the darn thing to work properly.

Zip included is following what was requested from Sticky.

Thank You for your time.

Related to kernexplorer.sys ad-aware security program from Lavasoft. Remove it and replace with MSE

I originally had MSE... And thought that it was causing the issue. I'm using Avast atm. But I uninstalled as suggested. I'll post back with results as they come.

Thank you.

The problem still persists. I've had another crash while playing Diablo 3. What's worse is it happened while I was playing in windowed mode as well. :'( I was hoping it'd be a fullscreen only issue. -.-;

None are being created. It's just the same 3 I have from when I was running Verifier.

I'm not getting any blue screen dumps or anything when my computer crashes.

Edit:
I'm not seeing any new .dmps in the C:\Windows\Minidump location.

Not sure if anything changed... But I re-did the Dmp + perfmon.
