Steam is troublesome. Always. But the BSOD is not showing anything more.

Enable Driver Verifier for one more time.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

DV Results

I've noticed Windows Error Reporting takes a while, would it be a good idea to disable this so I don't get so many reports? I played osu for a few hours and got a bluescreen, not really a graphics intensive game, I haven't tried DV with CS:GO or any other game, so i'll disable it.

I actually got a blue screen before DV when I enabled it but I didn't choose to restart, but this blue screen I uploaded is after I enabled DV.

Edit: I forgot to mention this time steam didn't automatically log me in when windows started rather it asked for my log in info. Also I'll run DV until it blue screens and automatically restarts, I've already deleted the settings so it should be off when I restart.

Since you think this is steam's fault or nvidia's we'll hopefully find out the culprit with this report. Let me know if any other information is necessary.

The zip does not show any new crash dump. Disable DV and then enable it again. This time, make it sure that you are not selecting any driver provided by "microsoft" and "unknown" in the list.

Seeing a couple of DV enabled crashdumps, it will be decide about what is causing the issue.

Try this one, if there are any more bsods i'll repost some more crashdumps.

Note: In that DV tutorial it said don't check any microsoft drivers, well I checked the unknown drivers because it wasn't microsoft, but don't worry this time I did not check microsoft or unknown drivers.

Here's another one, it was the same report because it happened on the same day, everything that's new is renamed "(2)" (Decided to keep both files, sorry for the messiness)

The bsod basically happened as soon as I entered a server on cs:go, but after my restart it was fine for the rest of the match...

No crash dump at all.

Disable driver verifier. Run disc cleanup to remove all the old files. Then follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

try the crashing action again ... hopefully there will be a crash dump. If not, we have to think it differently.

Disabled driver verifier, and ran disk cleanup and deleted everything, but i'm not sure if it deleted all the old dump files, because when I went to the minidump folder there were still files that I had but said "Access is denied" to me when I tried opening them, and in disk cleanup there's still about 800MB worth of dump files so again I'm not sure if disk cleanup removed the old ones.

I got a blue screen without driver verifier on, but after I used that registry file you showed me in order to activiate minidump recordings, hopefully this report will have some.

Alright so my computer has been better, but there are still some issues. I've gotten maybe 2-3 blue screens this week, and one was really short I remember it was almost instant.

Problem is some of my applications randomly crash, namely Firefox, Chrome, Osu, and CS:GO. Firefox will restart itself in safe-mode, Chrome will forget all my tabs I had open, osu will randomly crash once a song is complete (and always say it's been updated at startup), and cs:go randomly crashes if I alt+tab to my desktop (running true fullscreen on that game) and I have removed SUPERAntiSpyware.

When I'm running flash videos on websites such as YouTube, or a game, sometimes I think I can hear my graphics card or it's fan spinning if something happens in game or video it kinda matches the noise/sound it makes...call me crazy, or it could be my hard drive. The hardware end seems to be fine though, no overheating and everything is stock.

I am wondering though, should I stick with these drivers since they seem to be the most stable? Are there any further attempts to permanently fixing this issue? I just don't want to randomly receive any more bsods out of the blue (pun intended, but serious) My question to you Arc is if there is any more logs you'll want or shall I mark this as resolved if you think it's okay? I think it's not resolved because of these minor yet random issues.

Here's my take from what you described.

That is possible that no dump was recorded or it was an NMI.
Did you happen to remember how it looked?
Was there a lot of white text on the screen or just a few lines?

This sounds like an unstable CPU, what is the make, age and model of your PSU?
Please fill out this form and post back the result:


The noise description sounds like a typical coil whine, changing frequency dependent
on what is being displayed on the monitor.

Do you happen to notice some sort of a reproducible pattern to the crashes?
