Windows 7: BSOD in various games

BSOD in various games

Hello, I have been getting semi-frequent BSODS while playing various different games, such as Starcraft 2 and League of Legends. They seem to always be either PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.


Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to Seven Forums.

What antivirus do you use?

Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do.

Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows
MalwareBytes Free

information   Information
  • Do not start the free trial of MalwareBytes, unselect that option when prompted.

  • Update and make full scans with both separately.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows 7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

Start up
Keep less stuff at the start-up. Only anti-virus, this helps avoid driver conflicts and improves time to log in to windows.

Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for at least 8-10 passes. It may take up to 20 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule the faulty RAM stick out.
