Random BSOD, while playing games (WoW, LoL)

hey,

like the title says, I've been getting random BSOD's for the last 2 months. it's really annoying since i tend to game a lot and my computer just freezes up, gets a BSOD and then restart. i added a zip file in the attachments with the files needed, hopefully everything is in it. I'm not a genius with computers : )
I'm using dual monitors if that is of any use.

Can you recall anything you've changed in your PC setup a couple months ago? Is that when you added a second monitor?

I'm not seeing anything conclusive, but I did notice a couple patterns. One, is that your Nvidia drivers are always involved, regardless which version is installed. Second, is that your network drivers also seems to pop up frequently. You'll want to update your network drivers, as well as your antivirus software. Also, as a just-in-case, reattach your monitor cables to your graphics card and re-seat the card.

Since the crashdumps aren't all that conclusive, we'll need Driver Verifier crashdumps. Please read the article entirely and carefully.

I indeed added the other monitor a couple of months ago. i'll try updating those network drivers and antivirus software first.

And I take it the crashes only started coming after the second monitor was added? In that case, there's a possibility that it's an issue with the multimonitor setup you have with your graphics card, or a bug in the drivers. I recommend tinkering with the display settings on the Nvidia control panel as well as testing the system's stability with just one monitor. If the system seems to stabilize with just the one monitor, for sure there's a problem with the multimonitor setup you have. You may need to use a different cable type to hook the monitor up, or there may just be a fundamental problem with that particular graphics card with multimonitors. I recommend searching online - especially on the Nvidia forums, to see if other people have the same issue with that particular card.

yeah, i'll have a look around see what i can find, since the problems started with the duo monitors it's most likely to be the cause of the BSOD's, just wanted some expert advice. thanks for the quick replies, i'll keep this thread updated if i find a solution
