Windows 7: BCcode : 7a

Yeah only games seem to cause it, and not all games.

Games that have resulted in a 7a for me are:

Wildstar
Rift
Gw2
The Secret World
Lotro
ArcheAge

Pretty strange but I had a BS tonight that was Bccode 116 (Dump attached) which is a new one for me, not sure if related or not.

A computer may BSOD during a gameplay with stop 0x116. That is possible, that is logical. But stop 0x7A during games is a new thing, and it is not very feasible. A stop 0x7A is not anyhow game related. It is a failure from the part of the games, as far as I have seen.

Let us check for some hardware components, as it is BSODing during games only, and games put a stress on the hardware.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
Also let us know the wattage of the installed PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Okay so I ran Memtest86+ for 8 passes last week and it came back with 0 issues.

Furmark ran fine with no artifacts although the screen shot I've attached looks crazy. Not really sure what happened there as it did not look like that on my screen!

Prime95 had no issues but I did get worried when my temps reached 100 so I stopped the test at that point

PSU Calculator:

Minimum PSU Wattage: 326 W
Recommended: 376w

My PSU is a Corsair 550 so 550w

My PC isn't hot, I have it in an elevated position with good ventilation. I keep a track on temps while gaming and I can't spot any correlation between temps and bsod, just seems random.

Though you ought to know this even if it's purely coincidental. It seems the games that give me bsod are the most recent I've downloaded. For example Elder scrolls Online has been on my HDD for over a year and that runs all day long on max settings with no issues, then I boot up Rift which I downloaded last week and get BS on medium settings. Seems strange as Elder Scrolls has way better graphics

Thanks

The screenshot looks really odd. But you said the test did not run with this visual, so going with your statement.

There is one contradiction there in your statement. Prime95 took the heat to 100 degrees, and you said the computer is not hot. Do a proper reporting with speccy as suggested in post #13.

In regards to me stopping the Prime95 test when I hit temps of 100, should I just let it go higher?
I don't really know much about component temperature so I just got scared at that point in case something was wrong!

No! 100 C evaporates water! Its extreme heat.

There are two alternative explanations of this situation, either the computer is hot itself or the CPU is failing to manage the stress.

That is why the proper documentation of the heat is needed.

Its not overheating, but still 100C in prime95 is extreme.

Are you using the stock intel cooler? Then I would suggest you to get any third party cooler, air or water.
