Windows 7: BSOD Only when gaming or watching streams

BSOD Only when gaming or watching streams

I've been having BSOD issues with my computer for months now.


I only BSOD when doing something, Watching a stream or playing a game, The computer can IDLE for 3 days straight and not BSOD. Something to add, Whenever I play games such as Starcraft 2, World of warcraft, Arma 2, THey will randomly just crash to desktop, ANd I noticed that the two might be related.

I had microsoft take a look at my machine, They went into my driver verifier and according to him he "Put my computer on manual" Basically drivers weren't always just on, When he did that I was able to play 2 days straight without a BSOD

However I was loosing performance HARD, So I reverted the settings and BSOD within an hour.

Its not an over heating issue as I even tried opening the case and putting a fan next to it, I keep track of my temps and nothing ever gets to a scary point. I've updated any drivers needed.

I just can't figure out why I keep crashing/BSOD'ing.

I also Have 2 computer profiles and both BSOD/Crash

Computer Specs:

Win7 Home Pre
AMD Quad Core
8g Ram
64bit OS
GPU: Nvidia 660

Attached is my dump files from my main profile, If you need anymore I can attach the other profile's dump files although its the exact same issue

EDIT:
What I've done so far
Reinstalled Win7
New Hard Drive
New GPU
New Ram
Reseated everything, Including cleaning and adding new thermal paste.
Uninstalled and Reinstalled All drivers thru driver sweeper
Uninstalled and reinstalled any programs that BSOD, Even tried running off an External drive.

Hello Simp, the 2nd October edition of nvidia display driver is a bit unstable, and so it is the 10th october version is there.
Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7

Also there are some USBPORT.sys issue. For the port, first, uninstall and reinstall the USB ports drivers.
  1. Right click on Computer icon > manage. It will open the computer management window.
  2. Click on "Device Manager" in the left pane, it will list all installed devices up.
  3. Expand "USB Serial Bus Controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  4. Click on one item to select, then right click and uninstall.
  5. Do the same for all.
  6. Restart the computer.
  7. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate drivers.
And, Disable USB Selective Suspense too.
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off

For the devices, first, detach all the USB devices other than the keyboard and mouse.
Then, Update the drivers for them all, including the keyboard and mouse, if any third party drivers are installed for them.

Alright, I guess I have to hope the next driver build is more stable, however my problem was going on way before I upgraded the GPU, and even with the upgraded GPU it still BSOD's

I disabled the USB and currently upgrading the drivers...Basically just waiting on the next bSOD so I can post a new dump file, Anyone else got anything else I should try?

OK, I am asking them on behalf of you. I am happy that it will reduce my load a bit.

Did you follow the recommended steps for handling drivers when reinstalling WIn7, which are not at all like XP and explained fully in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

If not I would reinstall using only the tools and methods in tutorial to assure a perfect install.

But first I'd test my hardware as shown in Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which might also be useful if you want to avoid reinstalling.

No Errors, Failures or crashes. I even ran these before I replaced the GPU and had the same results.
I just got back from holiday and now my computer BSOD's randomly not just when gaming or watching streams, And Within 2 hours I've gotten maybe 10 BSOD's
