Windows 7: Computer crashing while playing

Computer crashing while playing

Hey,

So, my computer is crashing while I play games like Left 4 Dead or Bad Company 2. When it crashes, sound starts looping and I get a black screen and there might be somekind of corruption on the screen. Black screen stays there for some time (5-10 secs, not sure about the exact time) and then the computer reboots. After I boot back in to Windows, a window pops-up telling that Windows has recovered from bluescreen but I didn't see any bluescreen coming up.

I figured it might be something to do with heat but after I logged the temperatures, I'm not so sure about it anymore. At the moment of the crash, GPU was at 94C and processor cores were at 66C , 65C , 67C , 65C so the temperatures seem to be fine.

I attached the most recent minidump in to this post.

How can I fix this?

GPU at 94 degrees is really quite hot, not good to be running it at that temp. Probable cause.

Agreed. With the "somekind of corruption on the screen." that you mention too, this is definitely because of overheating.

Your CPU is also way above what it should be.

Make sure your case has tonnes of ventilation
