BSOD while gaming, mulitple error codes.

Just recently started getting BSOD's while gaming, two so far. However the fashion in which they happened are similar to the last time my computer BSOD in which the CPU was faulty.Having replaced it I went 2 months BSOD free until last night's batch. Was hoping to find a solution to the problem. Temps when running were at or near normal during gaming around 35 on CPU 49 on Mother board and Graphics card and 30 on Hard drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your crash is STOP 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL .
Usual causes:
Device driver.

But no trace of a device driver is found in the stack. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hello, thanks for the response. Ran driver verifier and got a BSOD attached is the dmp zip. I'll continue to run it for another crash to provide the most information possible. The latest BSOD occurred while i was playing a game for about 10 minutes and it was a PFN list corrupt which from my understanding points towards RAM? Thanks for the help so far

Arc may disagree, but after looking at that... well it has some really strange info in the unloaded module list.
Basically I suggest running this overnight to check your memory at this point.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
(if it hits errors right away you can stop it, but generally they recommend allowing it to run for many passes to be sure.)

Alright will do thanks for the help! Does the strange info usually indicate anything particular?

well memory dumps are ...dumps of what was in memory. If that's not coming out straight there is a possibility there is a problem with the physical RAM itself. I'm still not ruling out his initial call of 'driver problem' ram is just really easy to check overnight while you sleep.

No question of disagree, Maguscreed You are much more knowledgeable and experienced than me
And, if a crash with Driver verifier enabled also indicate to memory corruption, your suggestion RAM - Test with Memtest86+ is my suggestion, too!
