BSOD 5 minutes into playing WoW.

Hey, I'm really new to all this forum stuff so ill keep it short. Clues in the title as to what happens, sometimes even does it on the log in menu. Attached Zip file is all using SF diagnostic tool. So let me know if somethings gone wrong.

As I am not familiar with the sf diagnostic tool yet, what are the particular blue screens you are getting? Have you written down the stop error?

Ill be honest with you, i have no clue what you mean by stop error. I was just told to use SF because i couldn't access the .Dmp file itself

Looks like the graphics driver and directx are crashing. What kind of computer do you have?

Ah, okay... hmmm, from what I am seeing here, it looks like you are running an Intel graphics chip... perhaps updating the driver will do the trick.

Intel Download Center

Run the 'Intel Driver Update Utility'. This is going to scan your computers hardware and drivers and let you know if there is a new version out. In this case, we are looking for the graphics driver.

I've just had a thought, that file is wrong i've had to switch to my MOBO gfx to run my Pc without games, at this time i also did that scan. So its reading the wrong gfx output. The intel chip is just my backup while my card is unplugged, Ill re plug my card back in, scan again then attach the contents. My apologies.

That's okay, I was a bit skeptical about an Intel chip running WoW. Haha.
