Windows 7: BSOD While Playing COD WaW

BSOD While Playing COD WaW

I've had this issue in the past, especially while playing WaW. My CPU was previously running too hot because the heat sink was not seated properly. This used to be a source of crashes, but I have solved this issue. My graphics driver also used to crash in the past, but recent updates from NVIDIA have solved that issue too. I have no idea what could have caused this crash unless it was the game itself, but I really don't know much about BSODS or crashes.

Hi Robo,

You are overclocking, please stop it as it might be the root of the error.

CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz"

CurrentSpeed: 3417
I would recommend that you start by updating your computer with drivers from the Asus Support page. For example I noticed that your BIOS version is 1805 but the latest one on the Asus site is 2104.

Your BSOD says that there is a problem with the CPU that it is having trouble with cooperation from its cores and threads.

Hope this helps and puts you on the right track with your computer!

Hmm, that's strange. I've never overclocked or set up overclocking. Not sure what that's about.

I'm updating my BIOS and all my drivers. I could have sworn they were all updated. I guess I forgot to update them after I did a fresh install some time ago.

I have some drivers installed, for example my LAN driver, that aren't from the ASUS site, do you think I should downgrade to the ones on ASUS's site in those cases?

At least I know that the cause is the CPU.

Thanks for your help!

Not exactly, I see the CPU part BorisTheAnimal is talking about everytime with 0x101, but it doesn't mean the CPU is the cause.
From experience I can say that the 0x101 is most often caused by BIOS bugs, second most occuring cause is drivers.

Oh, okay. I'll see if the problem still occurs after installing updated drivers and flashing the latest BIOS. Should I stick to the drivers provided by my MOBO manufacturer or can I also get newer drivers directly from Intel, Realtek, etc...?
