Windows 7: Crashing in games after OCing: what should I change?

Crashing in games after OCing: what should I change?

Hello people. I am a first time poster here.

I have been trying to OC my system. I use my favorite 3D game to test the stability of the system.

I have had a few crashes. The following is copied from one of the mdmp files:

Can you decode that for me, please? What is the cause of the crash? Is it my CPU is under-volted, or does it have to do with the memory? What should I change to cure this problem?

The system is otherwise stable, even under Prime95 and IntelBurnTest.

Thanks a lot guys.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
