BSOD Random moments when playing PC Games

When I'm playing Minecraft 1.7.4 or League of Legends, in the random moments while playing the game, I would get a BSOD without it having nonpaged fault or etc.

Welcome to SF pikkerss .
The dump files are showing several possible causes so I would like you to run some tests please.

Test for thermals and stability:
  • Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.
    • Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).
    Note   Note
    It is not mandatory to run both tests simultaneously, although possible as long as the temperatures are under constant monitoring.

Once you have, please follow the detailed quote.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorError
RAM2GoodGood
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
testSlot1Slot2
RAM1ErrorGood
RAM2ErrorGood
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.
If memtest comes free from errors, 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.

Could u explain it a little more simple?
Do I just use the reg clean pro and when it finishes take a screenshot?
And I'm young so I can't really do anything with anything money related.

reg-clean "pro", is Malware and does nothing but damage to your system, if you've used it for any
amount of time you're better off going with a clean install (after backing up your files to an external
hard-drive or the likes).

I didn't mention either, reg-clean or something monetary, how old are you?

I'm 14.So explain what you posted previously with simpler words please.
But the problems I'm having now are just sudden restarts.
It brings me to safe mode or safe mode with network or safe mode with command prompt , or start windows regularly.This only happens when I'm playing games.

The sudden restarts might be very fast BSOD's.
Please disable automatic restart on system failure which will enable you to distinguish between
a BSOD restart and a hardware failure restart.

Here's how:
  1. Click the start orb , type systempropertiesadvanced (you can copy the bold text and paste it into the start menu search bar) and hit the Enter key.
  2. Under Startup and Recovery, click the Settings button.
  3. Un-tick Automatically restart.
  4. Then hit OK on the window.
  5. And OK once more.

What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
As for the tests I posted earlier, what needs to be clarified ?
