Windows 7: BSOD While Playing LA Noire

BSOD While Playing LA Noire

Hello, I have been having very consistent BSOD crashes while playing LA Noire for maybe 5 minutes (when I say consistent, I mean that they happen consistently, the errors themselves are not as consistent and seem to vary every other crash). I have had crashes due to an Nvidia Video card driver in the past though these have become less common with the latest driver updates from Nvidia. I still have reason to believe that there is an issue with my video card considering that is all that has really changed about my machine. I have performed stress tests on the graphics card itself using FurMark with normal results and no crashes. I have run memory diagnostic with 20 passes which revealed no issues.

Crashes also commonly occur while playing Borderlands 1 and 2 and some Valve games (portal 2, Counter Strike GO).

Hello mate, crashing again?

Do three things at first, and see what happens.

Scan the system for possible virus infection.
Apply the latest version of nVidia display driver.
You may download it directly, from our forum link Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7; or you may opt for the Option 2 of Drivers- Download NVIDIA Drivers for “Automatically find drivers for my NVIDIA products” (it requires java installed).

Check the system temperatures with Speccy.

BTW, how old the graphics card is?

The graphics card is less than a year old (maybe 6-7 months?) And I've performed the three suggestions with no results... No rootkits were found and Defender offline reported nothing also. I've had another BSOD (similar stop error, if not the same, I can never see the whole thing before the system reboots).

Update it from Official Linksys Support Site.

Do some general USB related troubleshooting, too. 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.

Let us know the results.

Alright, I've updated the Linksys card to the latest driver (however this driver was for 32 bit Vista....) and I've run into another error while playing Counter Strike: GO, though this one is different than the others I've been having.

Installed the hotfix, but I recently just got the all too familiar error that I was getting before... This time while playing Empire: Total War

EDIT: I know this wasn't the error I was getting that you recommended the fix for, but I'm not sure how to reproduce that error to see whether the fix did anything
