Windows 7: BSOD starting to act up again..

01 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 64bit
BSOD starting to act up again..

Windows 7 x64 Professional currently
None windows preinstalled when bought
Around a year ago was the last time I installed windows
All hardware except for the grafic card is around 2 years old.

System spec:
GTX 580
I7 940 2,93Ghz
Gigabyte EX58-UD3R
6 GB ram dont remember what

When I enter a game, 5-10 min after moving around I get the BSOD. This happens with games like RIFT, Starcraft 2 and Diablo III.
I had this problem around a year ago, but got it fixed by updating bios. Untill today I have never had a single BSOD, but now It started all of a sudden. I dont remember installing anything new yesterday or today.

Unless what happend a year ago is related, the dumps from 2012 should only matter.

Hope you can help me

Software Concerns:
Security Software: ??? Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:
After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.

One of your crashes was DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.

Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.
  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

Remember to try multiple versions of the graphics drivers, download them fresh, and install the freshly downloaded drivers.

Hello and thanks for a quick response.

I did the SFC scan, and the first run came with the no integrity violation.
Diagnosing basic problems with directx seems like there is no problem aswell
Reinstalled my Nvidia Driver as you recommended, and is testing with the newest driver right now. I have been running for around 20 min and no BSOD yet. If it does happen I will try with an older version of drivers. Ill report back what happens later today
