BSOD playing Battlefield 3 as well as Games stops running
I built a new pc few months back and have really been having issues the whole time.
Some games run fine, others will CTD saying the program has stopped running and search for a solution. More recently I've experienced BSOD issues.
Playing Battlefield 3 I've experienced both BSOD and the program to stop running. When the BSOD occurs the screen blacks out then the video comes back but the image is made out of a bunch of lines like the video split up and moved around. Then the bluescreen comes up. (not sure how else to explain how it looks). Theres also a deep beap sound that plays sometimes as well.
I've also experienced an issue with other games, most recently Europa Universalis 3 where the game stops running as well. Sometimes the game runs fine without crash and I've played for 3 - 4 hours on two different occasions but the play after only lasts a few minutes.
My drivers are all up to date so I don't think they are the issue.
Just now I ran a program through the Action Center that I guess looked for solutions to problems and every problem that showed up is a "Video hardware error"
These are the files given to explain the problem.
My pc specs:
MOBO - Gigabyte - GA-990FXA-UD5
CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T 3.3GHz
RAM - 8192 gb G.skill Snipers
GPU - AMD Sapphire HD 6970 2gb
PSU - 850w Corsair
Windows 7 Home Edition 64x
I read somewhere that audio drivers could cause issues. I have High Definition Audio as well as the Realtek audio driver.
I don't know if I should upload those files that the problem report reported so don't know.
I've also been formatting videos for youtube and running my cpu at 85% so I don't think its the CPU overheating like I've heard can happen.

I can't remember the exact proceedure but head over to the crash and debug section, and in the stickies is the measure you need to take, to upload us your error messages that are made just before the blue screen.
I had issues with my latest build that would bluescreen, and it was because I was using the video drivers off the amd cd which caused issues. A simple update fixed it.
Oh and the random crashes to desktop for bf3 are just bugs. Most people get them occasionally.

Check your temperatures, AMD's are more likely to overheat when no good ventilation.
Also check temperatures with running Prime95 stress test atleast 1 hour.
I also think that the BF3 error is related to video hardware, you should run stress test for GPU and monitor temperatures aswell.
