Windows 7: Blue Screen after random time of gaming

Win7 Professional 64
Blue Screen after random time of gaming

hello there,

I was searching around the web for my BS issues, found this board and the professional support here, so I'll have a try.

I use the Win7 here mostly for gaming. After some time playing Dawn og War II or similar games concerning hardware requirements, I get a Blue Screen and reboot. This happens not when the system is idle and neither if I run games with lower requirements (e.g. Guild Wars).

Today, I had a look in the most recent dumps, but the "Probably caused by" messages were all quite different. So I started searching and well, found this board.

I own a Win7 Professional 64bit on a self assambled machine, so there was no pre install. The installation is from MSDNAA. My system is about a year old, the OS installation only a few months (upgraded from Vista Business 64 after experiencing the same problem there).

Some hardware specs (if you need them):
Asus P5Q (have some problems with the EPU utils, but they worked back in Vista where I had a similar problem)
Core 2 Quad q9550
2x2GB DDR2 RAM (clean, I've run memtest last night)
GeForce GTX 260
Razer Diamondback mouse (I heard Razer driver cause some problems)

Edit: I just found out who jcgriff2 actually is and I'm very sorry for being so paranoid. Here are the requested files.

Hello ! Welcome to SF !

Seems like it might be Razor because few crashing is pointing to mouclass.sys which is a Microsoft driver for mouse. So find that out more easily we can enable the Driver Verifier and let System catch the rouge driver Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Lets run Hardware Diagnostic to make sure everything is fine. Hardware Diagnostic !! « Captain Debugger

Hope this helps,

Seems like ASACPI.sys has caused the crash. Remove Asus Utilities go to C:\Windows\Drivers and find ASACPI.sys and rename to ASACPI.old and reboot the System.


A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 00000000000000f6, Referencing user handle as KernelMode.
Arg2: 00000000000000ec, Handle value being referenced.
Arg3: fffffa80071ea550, Address of the current process.
Arg4: fffff88004038257, Address inside the driver that is performing the incorrect reference.
