BSOD playing a game ntoskrnl.exe

Hi, I have had my new computer since June, It is a new Haswell one and I use the integrated graphics. Over the last 3 months there has been a few random crashes but not many, it has performed well but the graphics driver sometimes crashes and when it does it says its for windows 8 not windows 7. Today it's been on since about 9 so quite a long time then just at 10 to 5 it BSOD and I went into the BIOS and looked at the temps and it was 30 degrees system and 50 degrees CPU. I am not sure what caused the BSOD and would like you guys to have a look for me.

Thanks =)

Thanks. It just happened again, it first happened on 28th now today on the 2nd its happened again been fine last 4 days, exact same error just when doing random stuff.

Update: Ran driver verifier for all drivers and it kept crashing on startup so I went in safe mode and turned it off. Attached are the 2 minidump files I got.

Thanks again guys.

Hi, Do I have to change my RAM? I thought i needed to check it.. My computer is a novatech barebones model bb4670-8b. Here's the link to it: Novatech Barebone Bundle - Intel Core i5 4670K- 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz - Intel Z87 Chipset Motherboard - Novatech Gaming Tower Case & 500W PSU | BB-46708B
As it is a barebones I have added a HDD to it and intend to add a GPU at Christmas.

Hello Andrew89898 and welcome to the Forums,

Your first rar is incomplete, please rerun the SF Diagnostic Tool again and make sure that MSINFO, DXDIAG and Host.txt are included this time.
More info BSoD Posting Instructions.

----------

Your initial dump file points to this;
Code:
*******************************************************************************
*                                                                             *

BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa80096d3028, be000000, 100110a}

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
Usual cause: Fatal hardware error.
More info Bug check 0x124_0.

----------

If we dig deeper in the dump file we see that the following driver is the cause of your BSoD;
Code:

Driver reference table: igdkmd64.sys.

----------

Since I do not have the MSINFO and DXDiag files, I do not have all the information required to pinpoint the integrated chipset, so I will have to advice you to update it using the Driver Update Utility - Graphics.
After doing this, please completely remove the old driver by running a scan with Driver Sweeper.

----------

Now when we look at the dump files created after running Driver Verifier, we see this;
Code:
*******************************************************************************

Two failing drives this time; the integrated graphics chip driver, and the USB port driver.

I would advice you to update the USB driver from here. After doing this please completely remove the old driver by running a scan with Driver Sweeper.

After updating both drivers, please upload the requested files and follow ascomputers his advice on your RAM.

Hello Andrew89898,

It seems that you have posted a link to your machine's page while I was posting, and so I have missed it in my initial post. Please use the driver links in this post instead of my other post as they are more accurate.

As you can see, the conclusion of my previous post was right; both drivers are outdated.

You can find both drivers here.
Fill in the correct OS information before downloading anything!
Attachment 288251

Again, after installing them do a run with Driver Sweeper as shown in my previous post.

----------

To check your RAM for issues you could use the following hardware test;
Please run Memtest86+ to test your RAM for issues.

Tip   Tip
Let Memtest run for at least 10 passes and preferably overnight as it may take very long to complete.
Especially read part three of the tutorial, which explains you to test each RAM stick in all DIMM slots to filter out failing slots.

It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.

----------

Stress test the graphics card using Furmark GPU Stress Test.
information   Information
During the test please check the screen for artifacts.
The purpose of this test is to make your machine crash and create dump files so that we can pinpoint the cause of your problem.
Tip   Tip
Please run Furmark once when your machine has just started, and once again when your machine has been active for several hours.

----------

Stress test the CPU with Prime95.
Under Advanced, please check "Round off checking".
Please choose the "In-place large TFF's test.
Tip   Tip
Be sure to keep an eye on your temperatures when running these tests, especially the Large FFTs. We recommend the free utility Speedfan.
Note   Note
As with all hardware tests, Prime95 is not fail-safe. If the test passes for 2 hours with no errors, it is most likely to be stable. Unfortunately, it sometimes makes mistakes and gives a clean bill of health to faulty hardware.
Note   Note
When Prime95 has crashed your system, please continue by following the BSOD posting instructions.

----------

warning   Warning
Do not do this step if your hard drive is an SSD!
Please scan your hard drive with Chkdsk.
  1. Click on the
  2. Open an Elevated Command Prompt.
  3. Type the following;
    chkdsk C: /F
    Replace C: with the letter of your hard drive.
  4. You will get a message that your drive is in use and that Chkdsk will be run at start up.
  5. Please exit the command prompt, close and save any open programs and restart your machine. Chkdsk will now scan at boot.
warning   Warning
Do not attempt to cancel or stop the scan, this might result in a loss in data and could render your Windows unusable!

----------

Please also provide a screenshot of Speccy so that we can see your system temps;
Please download Speccy.
  1. Download and install Speccy.
  2. Open Speccy. Click on the Summary tab.
  3. Click on File and then on Save Snapshot.
  4. Set the save location as your desktop and upload the file by following this tutorial.
    Please upload a snapshot of your machine in the following situations;
    • Idle, after startup.
    • After being used for a few hours.
    • After straining the GPU by, for example, playing some High Res games.

It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

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.
