Windows 7: Recurrent BSOD, Probably Related to Graphic Card

Recurrent BSOD, Probably Related to Graphic Card

Hello,

I've been getting blue screens while playing League of Legends and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (but not while playing Unepic). These are the three games I've been able to test. The crashes don't happen while not playing games (haven't tried any other heavy work, though).

First, only the games crash. It takes some time until they do. Before that, I can play without problem. When I attempt to reconnect or restart, the BSOD comes.

On the bottom of this post, you can find possibly related files and reports.

Solutions I've tried:
-I've installed the latest AMD graphics card driver (Catalyst Omega 14.12). Although, I'm not sure that this process was immaculate, since I'm not an expert.

-I've checked my motherboard's BIOS version, which turned out to be up to date.

-I've installed the latest motherboard chipset update.

-Since I had read something about this problem having the possiblity of being caused by RAM problems (rather than graphics card), I ran Windows 7 inbuilt memory diagnosis tool. It showed no negative results. But maybe it's not very reliable.

None of these worked so far.
Any ideas? Can you lead me step by step?

Hello and welcome to SevenForums!

The problem is caused by your graphics driver. Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
Make sure you tick the Uninstall C:/AMD and C:/NIVIDA folders while you are in DDU when you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again and you should be good to go! This is the guide for DDU: Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Remember to remove Catalyst and only install the graphics driver.

Thanks for the help.

I did it, but my game just crashed, and it'll result in a BSOD if I try to play again.

I think I might have missed some steps, so I'll try again (I forgot to run DDU on NVIDIA, for example). If it fails to work again though, I probably won't be able to update until next week.

Thanks again. Just to be sure, I tried to open the game again (TESV:Skyrim), and got a BSOD. You can find the analysis of that in the bottom (which is identical to the old ones I think).

For being absolutely sure, these are what I have to do right?
1- Uninstall the AMD driver from Programs and Features.
2- Open in safe mode.
3- Run DDU.
4- Run AMD's driver installation manager. Uncheck everything other than the display driver itself.
5- Boot normally.


Also, as something that crossed my mind - there is this "AMD Gaming Evolved" thing installed. DDU didn't delete it. May it be causing the problems?

Alright, so, I think this time I did everything you told correctly. The game still crashed though.

Any other ideas? It's very frustrating having to reboot the PC in every few hours.

Have you overclocked? If so reset it to default settings.
