Windows 7: BSOD while running games

03 Aug 2010   #11

Microsoft Window 7 Professional 32 bit

memtestx86, easy, instruction is here:
Memory Diagnostics
Just download the file and use Isorecorder, drag the things in, let it burn and you have the CD. Then put it in when you start your computer, let it run while you sleeping or going to work
For the nvidia Ethernet driver, try to find the Nforce chipset driver from here, if you can't find it, that's just fine, I haven't seen anyone sucessfully update it (don't know why might be there haven't been any updates for it)

Looks like there's nothing wrong with the memory.

Unfortunately it's still crashing. could it be caused by a power supply not being powerful enough?

just found this page EVGA | Products on my graphic card... it states "Minimum 400 Watt for SLI mode system.
(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 22 Amps.)
" Mine is in SLI mode and only has a 300 watt power supply. Could that make it blue screen?

It's likely that your graphic card cause BSODs
Look at my first post in which I blamed the graphic card. Stop code 7E is potentially caused by graphic card. Usually the best option is to try different card on your system and see if it fix the problem. I'm not good with hardware therefore I don't know how to adjust the number that you just mentioned. See if you can borrow a graphic card from somewhere or get it from the shop that you can return it.

Usual causes: Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint with no debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, Memory, 3rd party remote control,
The generic way to know what the issue is is to changing video adapter. Hopefully you already try the reinstall the driver.

If that's not possible for you, then please enable Driver Verifier, so that we will know for sure what is current issue, because the bugcheck this time does not give us a lot of result:
I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.
