Windows 7: BSOD during steam games & skype

BSOD during steam games & skype

Hello all,

First post here. My friend recently assembled a new PC for me. I've been getting BSODs lately and I need your help on finding out why. I get them randomly, but I'm usually playing steam games or just talking on skype. I have got them during web browsing before as well. I've followed the instructions and attached the .zip!

Not sure if this helps, but the bugcheck code I get through bluescreenview is: 0x00000116 caused by driver dxgkrnl.sys and caused by address - dxgkrnl.sys+5d134


Thanks

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them
