Windows 7: Random BSODs (mostly occur while trying to play video games)

Random BSODs (mostly occur while trying to play video games)

Attachment 287690

I usually start my computer up and start the chrome browser. I try to log onto a flash game and then start playing a few minutes into it, the computer will post a bsod and there are multiple errors given. After a one or more restarts, the system usually becomes stable. However, this isn't the only time I get bsod. I could just have the computer on and after a couple of minutes it will go into a bsod.

I don't know whether I have a driver issue or what the problem is.

It happens regardless of whether I have a browser open or not. I can turn the computer on and do nothing and within a minute or two I'll get a bsod. I use chrome and explorer

okay... have you tried booting in safe mode? Restart the computer, Start tapping F8 key, You will get advanced boot option window, Using the arrow key select the option “Safe mode”

check device manager for any issues.

when did the problem start? possibly after a driver update or windows update?

I don't know when it started. It's been doing it for months. I've tried safe mode. I've scanned for viruses. Problem is it'll bsod at any time. Even when the computer is starting to load windows. It mostly occurs when I'm trying to play a game

what GPU you using? do you have the latest drivers installed?

sounds like a GPU issue.

can you please supply the memory dump?
How to read the small memory dump file that is created by Windows if a crash occurs

can you boot in safe mode and send us a screen print of your device manager.

thanks.
