I had another blue screen, I Had my BIOS set to Optimized Defaults and I Crashed during Dead Rising 3 on Steam. I Had GPU Tweak Installed During the BSOD I went ahead and removed this, Also i Uninstalled a Audio Driver For ATI I'm not sure why that was installed, I Unchecked it during the Driver Update from Before.

Ascendents, did you follow the instructions in post # 8? You should not have had any AMD Graphics drivers except the Graphics driver. They try to install a bunch of drivers that you already have and you don't use. That can cause driver conflicts. Please reinstall the graphics driver using the instructions I will give again. Please use the DDU and select ATI Drivers. Also, did you have your graphics card overclocked?

I would suggest connecting your Monitor using a DVI cable and your TV using the HDMI cable. I would also try with just one or the other connected, just to see if that is your problem.

This is what your dump files say. Typically there will be only one of them the cause and the others are the victims of the crash. But, we will try to cover all bases we can based on the Dump files.

Code:
fffff880`0ace3238  fffff880`01c289f3Unable to load image eamonm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for eamonm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for eamonm.sys
    eamonm+0x289f3
That is your ESET Amon driver

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for edevmon.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for edevmon.sys
 edevmon+0x24443
That is your ESET Smart Security Devmon Monitor driver. Please uninstall ESET Smart Security using the Add/Remove programs in your control panel, then use the ESET removal tool How do I manually uninstall my Windows ESET product? - ESET Knowledgebase. Please replace the Eset Smart Security with Microsoft Security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows).

Code:

That is part of IRST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology)

That is part of IRST also. Please remove IRST. If you are running Raid, please let me know before removing it.

As I am sure you know, that is your AMD driver for your dedicated graphics card. Please reinstall it using these instructions.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.

I would also like you to run Seatools for Dos on all Mechanical Hard Drives in your computer.
SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

Also, please run the Furmark Stress test. Run it with only the monitor connected. Be sure you have a good GPU Temp monitor. If the card gets too hot, stop the test. The temps will rise very quickly and very high. Run the test until your temps level out and remain stable. Also watch for any artifacts while running it.

If you have any questions, please ask.

You will have to determine on your end. I doubt I can on my end. But, is your game crashing causing the graphics drivers to crash, or are the graphics drivers crashing causing the game to crash. That is not an easy determination and you will have to be paying very close attention. Also please monitor your CPU and GPU temps during that game and all games. Heat will cause a crash also.

I notice no type of artifacting and temperatures are normal.

My Monitor only Supports HDMIx2 and VGA x1 I am going to Uninstall Intel rapid storage technology I am currently NOT running a RAID. I already reinstalled my AMD Driver earlier using Driver sweeper. I Don't want to uninstall ESET Just yet, I'm Going to run Seatools on my hard drive and see the result from that and go from there also, I've already ran Furmark with the highest settings i max out 71c @ 30% Fan speed Heat is no issue here. If my Hard drive is error free I Suspect my RAM in which case I will Run a Memtest86 overnight if it comes to it.

I have ESET too and like it a lot. But, in your case this is the second time it has been blamed for a crash and 3 instances of it. It can always be installed later on if we find out it was not the problem.

This is very true However, After i Get the results from SeaTools and Having GPU Tweak and IRST Uninstalled I want to see if i Trigger a BSOD. I Have a feeling GPU Tweak triggered it, and i'm NOT Overclocking everything is Stock Speeds and BIOS has been Reset to Optimized Defaults And Windows was formatted 2 Months ago. If I BSOD Again and ESET is in it the Dump files i'll uninstall it then for Testing Purposes I Just don't want to rule out ESET Just yet.

whatever you want to do is fine, but GPU Tweak has never been mentioned.

I Know it was never mentioned, I've had bad experiences with Monitoring software like that before so i was uncertain of it unless i know 100% it didn't cause it. I'm Just doing Trial and error until can get a definitive answer for the Issues at hand.
