Windows 7: Occasional BSOD

Occasional BSOD

Hi everyone!

My desktop sometimes crashes when I'm playing a game.
I have the latest drivers for everything but still crashed after updates.
I have overclocked the cpu, ram, and gpu but I'm not sure if thats the source of the problem.

Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff880101998c5, fffff88002be26c0, 0}

Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys ( dxgmms1!VIDMM_PROCESS_HEAP::Rotate+c1 )

Followup: MachineOwner
I would suggest you uninstall and reinstall your nvidia driver and see if the problem persists or not.

Let us know how it worked.
