Random BSODs on even on low end games

Hard crash/shut downs,only while playing games, only sometimes, not even high demand games, but only on games.

Things Tried:
  • Temps are 100% fine, issue can happen 10 mins into game or 4 hours.
  • Reinstalled all drivers for graphics card.
  • Downloaded 'Who Crashed', Can't get .DMP files to write... (Trying more Google on that ATM)
  • Did the mem test that is advised all over these forums, all is well. Was not a 'couple hour' thing, more like overnight.
  • Lit candles and danced, butcher had no live chickens.
  • Broke down, made Windows Seven forum account seeking wisdom.

The uploaded log collector file doesn't contain any .dmp files to analyse. Please check in C:\Windows\Minidump for any .dmp files and advise.

Hi,

They are not writing... baffled as to why, checked paging file size, it's higher than my installed RAM, (All google told me to check).

Far as I can tell I don't have a %system% folder thingie, I just installed Windows from OEM disk to C/.

Please do the following:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode
