Windows 7: Frequent BSODs & crashes when playing games, or just internet browsing

Frequent BSODs & crashes when playing games, or just internet browsing

Hi, recently my computer has been crashing or BSODing after 5-10 minutes of gameplay, on lots different titles (Planetside 2, Garry's Mod, Grand Theft Auto IV, theHunter, Red Orchestra 2). Planetside 2 and theHunter were never able to run correctly, but months and months ago I was able to play the rest without any problems. When playing less demanding games (Game Dev Tycoon), or just browsing the internet, these problems are very rare.

I am running:
  • Intel Core i5 3570k
  • 6 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 RAM
  • ASUS P8Z77-V Motherboard
  • Radeon HD 6950 2GB
  • 932 GB Seagate Harddrive
  • Windows 7 x64 Service Pack 1

I've tried uninstalling drivers, using Driver Sweeper, and reinstalling, but I don't think that helped. I've also flashed my BIOS to the most recent version, but again, I don't think that made a difference.

I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Hi,
Unfortunately the installation is non-genuine.
The Key is that of a Dell OEM computer - and the motherboard is a retail one by Asus.



The best course of action is to:
  • Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
  • Format the HDD.
  • Reinstall Windows and activate.

Random BSODs while playing games and browsing
Just recently started getting BSOD every time I try to do pretty much anything. I've had them while playing Civ 5, browsing on Chrome, while trying to install various programs. They are slightly random, but they will not happen if the computer is inactive. Thanks in advance for help.
