Windows 7: BSOD playing games and recording

Done and bluescreen.

Updated the driver, couldn't make a backup due to a window handling error?

It took me a while longer to generate this blue screen, so I think we are progressing. Thanks so much man.

I used amd gaming evolved, recorded a little bit, turned it off, played ffxiii a couple hours later and crashed about 15 minutes in. Are these details important? I can omit them if they aren't helpful.

Here's the dmp file.

Used the first driver on the links you posted. I just thought that rosewill was the manufacturing website and that one from 2011 was the latest one so evidently I do not know anything about computers.

Double checked device manager to see if it was the 2015 one, and the atheros driver is installed.

dmp file attached.

It is still causing memory corruption!

Now let us check for the drivers. If any driver is passing bad information there to the memory, the same may happen.

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

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Oops

Forgot to make a system restore point and retry making back up

Computer crashes on restart, only options are startup repair, or launch Windows normally

Tried using a restore point crafted by Windows when I installed the new drivers. It restored some drivers and programs, but I got a error message.

Picture attached.

Is there anything I can do from the command prompt?

If not I have another hard drive with just videos on that one, (i can format the second hard drive, I don't mind losing that data) I may be able to get Windows 8.1 on it.

At the very least I could recover my personal files doing this right? Would there be a way to change the driver verifier from there?

Sorry for fuzzy picture it reads: "system restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files sand settings weren't changed.

Details:
System restore failed while restoring the registry from the restore point. The restore point was damaged or deleted during the restore....."

And under that is just other options which tells me to clean install or use a back up point which I don't have.

Hmm. You should not have missed that important step.

Anyway, as you are not reluctant to do a clean reinstall, you will not loss any data. Back up your data elsewhere, following Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console and then you are ready for a clean reinstall.

Its okay i guess

So there is nothing to do to save my Windows 7 correct?

I would rather have 7 than 8.

Also when I partition my drives, is it true that if I make as separate partition for the os, my computer will load faster?

How large the HDD is?

The OS should run bit better from a 100-200 GB partition than a 1 TB entire HDD.

Then you may make 120 GB for the OS and rest for the data.
