BSOD when gaming (WoW)

Greetings,

I realized i'm only getting BSOD while running on games which needs high memory.
Please advice on what I should do.

PS: I'm not a tech savvy person, so please explain in a way that someone like me can understand. Cheers.

Regards.

Please follow - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

You've attached the .exe file for the SF Diagnostic Tool, not the folder it will produce.

Please update to the latest WHQL driver using these steps:

Quote:
Version: 320.18
Release Date for Desktops and Notebooks : May 23rd 2013
In Device Manager: 9.18.13.2018
  1. Download Driver
  2. Start Type: Device Manager
  3. Expand Display Adapters
  4. Right-Click Driver Name, Uninstall
  5. Reboot
  6. Run Driver Sweeper
  7. Reboot
  8. Install Downloaded Driver
Driver Sweeper will scan for any left over files from the old driver, old driver files can cause conflicts with new driver installations. Create a System Restore point beforehand, in case any problems or issues arise.

Driver Sweeper:Remove:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\PC Tools Registry Mechanic
Windows 7 doesn't require any programs which make changes to the operating system and registry, these programs tend to cause problems by modifying and deleting files.
Quote:
Windows is a closed source system. Developers of registry cleaners do not have the core code of Windows 7 and are not working on definitive information, but rather they are going on past knowledge and experience. Automatic cleaners will usually have to do some guesswork.

Modifying registry keys incorrectly can cause Windows instability, or make Windows unbootable. No registry cleaner is completely safe and the potential is ever present to cause more problems than they claim to fix.

Registry cleaners cannot distinguish between good and bad. If you run a registry cleaner, it will delete all those keys which are obsolete and sitting idle; but in reality, those keys may well be needed by some programs or windows at a later time.

Windows 7 is much more efficient at managing the registry than previous Windows versions. If you run any other registry cleaner and do not know precisely what you are doing, you will have problems down the road. There are no gains to be had from using a registry cleaner and the risk is great.
