BSOD Multiple causes usually happens during games

Hello, for around a month now my computer is constantly blue screening or my games have been crashing for unknown reasons. Its either my games crash after a while of play or I'll blue screen in the middle of playing. I've tried re-seating my graphics card and ram sticks and even changing them around but to no luck. I'm going to attach my most recent minidumps to this post. Thanks for all the advice and help that is to come

You got a variety of different error codes in all the dumps, my first impression would be problem with drivers (gfx especially) or memory issues

I would recommend downloading and running memtest 86+ to check your ram, run for at least 5 passes or overnight

Downloading and running HDD diagnostics from your drives manufacturer to check for errors

Run a system file scan to check for corruption by opening an elevated command prompt, start>cmd.exe>right click run as admin>type sfc /scannow

Update all drivers you can

You have a lot of old drivers on your system i would look at all of the following for updating

VMNET.sys 22/05/08
vmnetbridge.sys 22/05/08
vmnetadapter.sys 22/05/08
vmnetuserif.sys 29/10/08
SCDEmu.sys 07/08/07
VMkdb.sys 29/10/08
nvsmu.sys 13/10/07
nvm62x64.sys 17/10/08
ASACPI.sys 31/10/06
RTKVHD64.sys 07/05/08
hcmon.sys 29/10/08
vmci.sys 29/10/08
vmx86.sys 29/10/08
adfs.sys 26/06/08
npf.sys 06/11/07
vstor2_ws60.sys 03/10/08

I checked for corruption and it said it couldn't find any integrity violations so thats good. On regards to the drivers I tried to update some of mine but they all come up as "up to date". Doing a google search result of them also doesn't prove to be of much help. before I head to sleep I'll run the memtest

leave it running overnight , memtest86 needs at least 3 passes

When updating drivers its always best to do it manually
Google the old driver to find out what device its for then goto manufacturers website of that device and obtain latest driver for your model
eg ASACPI.sys is the acpi driver for asus motherboards, find their website locate your mobo model and download and install latest acpi driver

Heres the link for hitachi diagnostic software for your HDDs

Hope this helps

I did memtest and passed 4 times. I'm assuming that means its my graphics card );; I still haven't done the hdd diagnostics but I'm pretty sure it isn't my hdd

Its just a process of elimination, may or may not be gfx but the gfx driver was listed as causing a few of the crashes so a driver update may well be in order but there are a lot of different errors in the dumps so could be more than one issue
