BSOD while playing full-screen games

It is a BSOD crash, however the screen just goes black until restart rather than the bsod screen. Not sure why. See atatched, thanks in advance for your help. Sorry I could not give much info; hopefully DM Logs give more.

Service pack 1 failed to update when I originally tried to update it. I will try again.

Update successful this time. I went ahead and induced another bsod by letting a game run and ran the DM logs again just in case that helps.

Also this window came up on reboot (after bsod not after update):

All of your dumps are 0x124s which indicates a hardware error. To try to pinpoint the problem you need to run a series of tests outlined below.

Your other logs are showing signs of hardware errors although I'm not picking up exactly what. Follow the trouble shooting steps below.

warning   Warning
If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.


Run Prime95 to stress test your CPU. Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

warning   Warning
Your CPU temperatures will rise quickly while under this stress test. Keep a keen eye on them.


Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note
MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


Run SeaTools to check the integrity of your HDD. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use
