BSOD while playing video games, and ever since that BSOD onsimpletasks

I was playing Skyrim and then I hit Esc to go do something and then when I came back to my PC and sat down to play again it BSOD. Its BSOD before but I fixed it by unistalling Windows 7 and reinstalling it. Its been almost a year with out a BSOD. Now its BSODing randomly and sometimes one after another within 2-20min. I replaced my RAM in the past and that helped and also my Graphics card in the past. Im thinking it might be my graphics card. I noticed they stopped making it recently so maybe they stopped with updates too. I don't know. Just want to get my PC running smooth again.

Your zip file doesn't contain all the information we request on the article here. Please make sure to have as many items as you can in the zip file. The most crucial items are the minidump files.

I did exactly what the instructions said. If there is anything I need to add is there some other way to get it?

Primary directory for minidumps is \Windows\Minidump. They may also be found by doing a file search in Users directory for .dmp files.

This is all I could find for minidumps. Hope this helps. Thank you for the help. I greatly appreciate it.

Yeah, I'm afraid none of those are going to help us. The latest one present is from Feb last year. Can you turn on Driver Verifier and let it induce more crashes and send those crashdumps to us if at all possible? If need be, you can set it up in Safe Mode then switch to normal Windows.

How you dont mind thought i might chip in
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
double check you are configured correctly to produce minidumps, method 2 option 2 is the easiest IMO
