Windows 7: BSOD playing some games, usually 0x04e error

BSOD playing some games, usually 0x04e error

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to look at my thread!

I've been having problems with BSOD's while playing quite a variety of games (it will not happen immediately, or always, most of the time it will occur after ~30 minutes of play, and either result in the game crashing or the BSOD). I have run Memtest86+ with no errors, and a Hard disk check shows no problems with the S.M.A.R.T. information on my two drives. I reformatted and reinstalled windows after this started and the problem has not changed.

I have exhausted anything I can think of to fix this, so if someone has any ideas that would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

Welcome

Well actually 2 of your dumps out of 4 show memory corruption
How many passes did you run memtest for?
Please do it again overnight for 8 passes at least
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If it still finds no errors please run the extended version of:
Memory Diagnostics Tool

The other two dumps do not indicate anything specific
Follow the tutorial below to repair Windows 7 System Files
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Ps. You're not overclocking, are you?

Post back once you've done these

Is it possible that the memory errors are from the video memory, and if so, do these diagnostic tools analyze that memory?

Well you can check the temps of your graphics card using this tool
GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility

Also if you have speccy installed

The temperatures generally have sat within what the manufacturer says is acceptable (it has gone up to 80c, but apparently that is acceptable). I'll give a long test with memtest86+ tonight and let you know. Thank you!

Alright.

Let us know what the SFC tells you.

Keep us posted.

The SFC Scan was clean. (And to answer your initial question, no, I am currently not overclocking the system, though a fair question considering I have the unlocked core)

I attempted to run the extended version of the memory diagnostics tool (the standard passed fine) and it hung at 10% for over an hour. Is that expected?

Well then, another blue screen, with a new error! 0x01a, being blamed on a failure of nvlddmkm.sys, which appears to be an NVIDIA driver. I will continue testing as I am able. I should have the results from memtest86+ tomorrow morning.
