BSOD playing games, especially Dota 2 and Call of Duty Ghosts.

Hey guys, I've been getting numerous BSOD when I play games such as Dota 2, Call of Duty Ghosts and Counter Strike Source/Global Offensive.
I'm not sure how to retrieve the error codes, so can someone please help me.

I have run the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool (2 passes) and there were no problems.

These are 3 critical errors I got today (30/11/13).

The latest BSOD as per the zip is of 09/11/2013. That was a BSOD caused by the display driver.

In the mean time, there must be some system changes, and analyzing those dumps may not represent the continuing present.

Is the newer BSODs does not generate crash dumps? 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.

I've followed all the steps, but I'm noticing a decrease in performance in games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty Ghosts and Dota 2.

I got two BSODs today while playing World of Warcraft. It's the first time I have got a BSOD with WoW.

Also while stress testing using Furmark. I notice there are white horizontal lines that are appearing. The temperature at load levels at around 69 degrees @ 10 fps.

There is no solid reason to believe these BSODs are game related.

If you get any display anomaly during furmark, post a scerrnshot here, let us see it.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
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. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, not the crash dumps only.

Be sure that you upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

If you look in the top left corner, you'll see two very small white lines. Imagine those lines are longer and span the entire width of the screen, especially at the bottom. They constantly pop up then disappear. Sometimes at different thicknesses. 68C @ 9 fps.

----------------------------------

I ran Driver Verifier and could not run my computer normally after reaching the desktop. It took about 10 seconds after the desktop screen appeared for the computer to bluescreen. I restarted my computer and the same bluescreen error code came up the second time. I went into safe mode then disabled it from there then restarted my computer.

It is display artifact, and you need to see the situation with a replacement GPU. Your GPU is failing to take the load.

The driver verifier enabled BSODs caught HIDCLASS.sys, which is common for DeathAdder keyboard/mouse. Cannot say it a issue right now.

We need to see the situation with with a replacement GPU first.
