BSOD while playing game! Please Help!

Just built my computer and it goes to BSOD when only playing games about 30min or longer into it. I believe all the drivers are updated and i ran a memory test and show no issues. All my temps look good for the cpu 28c and the gpu 51c while playing a game.

ANYWAYS...if you guys can help that would be much appreciated bc im starting to think my gpu is bad.

Here's the info...let me know what else is needed to help solve this problem...............

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

I looked at your three most recent dumps. All of them are error code 124, a fatal; hardware error. Please this article: [2-Int] Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try.

Sometimes error code 124 can be caused by out of date drivers. I find the following outdated drivers loaded on your system. One of them is an XP driver. Update these drivers.

See how your system runs after taking care of the above drivers. If you are still getting BSOD's, upload them and begin testing your hardware. Take care of the drivers first.

Run Memtest to test your RAM. Allow it to run for at least seven passes. This will take 6 - 8 hours. Follow the instructions in this tutorial and post your results:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If you find no errors with Memtest, test your graphics card with Furmark following the instructions in this tutorial. Monitor your temps during this test: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark. Post back with your results.

If your there are no problems with your graphics card, test your CPU and your RAM with Prime following the instructions in this tutorial:
https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...t-prime95.html. Post your results.

The error code is still a 124, a fatal hardware error code.

First take care of this driver. Either update it or try another keyboard. If there is no update for this driver, your keyboard is obsolete and not compatible with Win 7.

Lycosa.sys Fri Jan 18 03:51:42 2008 - Razer Tarantula Keyboard Driver http://www.razersupport.com. If you cannot update this driver, upgrade your keyboard and uninstall your present keyboard.
After you take care of the keyboard driver, run Prime again. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs). You can also run this free CPU stress test:|MG| CPU Stability Test 6.0 Download. It looks like your CPU passed the Prime test, but we need to make sure.
Quote:
The next step is to check compatibility using this link: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads

If everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) is listed as compatible, then the next most likely thing is broken hardware. To test for that, you'll have to run as many diagnostics as you can get your hands on - and that may still not be enough. Then, you'll have to check for hardware issues using the suggestions at this post:
Hardware Troubleshooting Via System Stripdown

But take care of the keyboard first.

Ok i updated my keyboard driver and ran prime95 again.....did not take as long for the system to crash/reboot when running the blend and large ffts test. however when i was playing black ops (FOR AWHILE) rather than going straight to BSOD...the screen just went black but could still hear some noise.

Also ran to windows 7 compatibilty test/upgrade advisor....these were the only issues>>

Try to copy the minidump to your desktop and zip it from there. That usually works. Update your Realtek Ethernet driver. Try removing all sticks of RAM but one and see if you get BSOD's. Also, do you have another known good power supply you could try?
