Windows 7: BSOD Playing Steam games and other titles

BSOD Playing Steam games and other titles

Hello everybody,

I have built a custom computer couple months ago and began to notice blue screens off and on, sometimes it would fix itself and I would not see one for days but now it has become a bit consistent when playing most 3D applications. I performed my own tests to see if any hardware issues might exist, I did a memtest with no problems in the memory, swapped videos cards, installed every single driver from sound card, to video card, solid state and beyond, However I still get this problem. I also went into my bios setting to ensure that nothing is overclocking my CPU. I had both video cards (NON SLI because it would always bsod in sli) so I was using one of the cards dedicated for gaming for a little while. The problem would only occur when I loaded into a game. I would get a black screen and enough time to predict it was going to bsod, the game would hang and allow me to alt tab to desktop seconds before everything froze completely and crashed. I decided to take one of the video cards out and see if it duplicated the symptom, to my surprise I was able to run the game for a little while longer (approx 15-20 minutes) and then it would blue screen again. I tried this with the single card three times and continued to have the same issue. Otherwise the computer is stable on desktop with no problems so far. I have become very frustrated with this build as there are so many hardware components involved and narrowing it down would be difficult without rmaing every single component individually. My last resort is to seek help from a BSOD analyst expert to help dictate what the problem could be. I would greatly appreciate any time you put in to helping me out in this situation.

Sincerely, Static

Please contact your technician to get your problem rectified.. If it was a software error we could have done something. Since it is a hardware error, it is best to get it rectified with technician.

So pretty much in conclusion from the dump files you are unable to find a solution to the problem? I purchased the hardware components separately, Will I have to RMA everything separately to insure 100 percent that the hardware I have is not faulty?
