Windows 7: BSOD Playing Almost all games

BSOD Playing Almost all games

Hey, I recently built a new PC and have been having BSOD troubles in basically every game, from the decades old (Planescape Torment) to the brand new (DotA 2, LA Noire).

I have ran memory tests on the RAM which have come up completely spotless, also have re-installed graphics drivers (ASUS 7970) multiple times and even attempted a fresh install of Windows 7 (64bit). I have also updated my Motherboards BIOS. Windows is running of a Samsung 128GB SSD

The following link is some BSOD dumps from before the fresh install of windows, sorry that they are uploaded on mediafire.

111512-5428-01.dmp
111512-6052-01.dmp

And the attachment is the most recent dumps from after the install.

I would be happy to provide any more details if necessary, thankyou

Contrasted,

EDIT :- Interestingly enough i can play League of Legends or watch movies/TV Shows in VLC without any issue

Thanks for the response, am i correct in assuming you are suggesting to download the beta drivers, if this is the case I will download and install these. Also I assume i dont need to download with .NET support, or do I, im not really certain

Thanks for the clarification.

Quick Update, i downloaded and installed the drivers and I am yet to encounter a bluescreen (but havent tested in any other games apart from DotA2) The game was however freezing completely and forcing me to restart, but not a bluescreen.

Also i forgot to mention originally but I often used to encounter an error message on the desktop something along the lines of "The display driver has stopped responding and recovered" but since increasing some TRD delay in registry this error no longer pops up, I dont know if that helps at all.

EDIT - Just tested LA Noire and got that same driver has stopped responding message

Also the crashes occur in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (not a blue screen but a full system crash (cannot alt tab or open task manager etc.)

Also im not sure if you looked at the memory dumps in the mediafire links but they appear to have been caused by something else (ntoskrnl.exe
)

Ger memeter. During playing DOTA2, Alt+Tab and see the memory usage. Is it increasing gradually over time, and approaching 100%?

If you supply the dumps, I might have found something other than ntoskrnl.exe.

Ok thankyou, I will download Memeter and try to check as soon as possible, thankyou for the ongoing support!

Also I am not sure what you mean by supply the dumps, will memeter create dumps or do you mean when the system bluescreens again?

No, memeter will measure memory usage only. During gaming if it crashes again, supply the dumps.
