Windows 7: BSOD occuring at seemingly random times (but often close together)

BSOD occuring at seemingly random times (but often close together)

Hi there,

I have an issue where I get BSODs that seem to happen 1-3 times in a day or two, then stops for a bit, just today and yesterday I had 1 BSOD each, previous to that there was a big gap between the previous ones. I should have posted earlier, but I stop seeing the crashes and think the problem is gone... poor judgement. The last 2 times have happened while playing/watching League of Legends games (previous to these times, it had never crashed during LoL though, so that's new). I have also played numerous games without issue before then and after.

Files attached, thank you.

Welcome
Looks like a bad driver, identity unknown. Use driver verifier to help us determine the cause
Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because
Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
