Windows 7: BSODS while gaming

22 Jan 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

JMH - I've replaced the file as you advise. Will test tomorrow.

Fimble - I've used Driver Sweeper before but never did it in safe mode. Will try that also tomorrow.

Thanks for your help.

JMH is seeing drivers I'm not. Methinks my symbol cache may be corrupted.
Hey-Ho. Throw it away and start again (its gotten kind of large anyway). Then again, I do tend to concentrate on the dump files.

That means Elmerfud, I may have been wasting your time, for which I humbly apologise. If I'd seen as JMH has the ASACPI file it would have been the first thing to go!!

Hi Guys

Replaced the ASACPI.SYS as advised and has a time stamp of 2009 instead of 2005.
I ran memtest86+ no errors as last time.

Here is the latest dump. Only lasted 3mins on BC2 this morning.

Have you checked for heat? Tried other Gfx-drivers?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi Anthony

I've ruled out overheating. I haven't tried any GFX drivers apart from the latest at ATI or Sapphire which is pretty much the same drivers. I haven't gone back to previous drivers because the problem existed as soon as BC2 came out which is about February 2010? I've gone through different drivers in that time and had the same problems but to a less frequent occurrence than nowadays.

I uninstalled the GFX driver in Safe Mode and used Driver Sweeper.
Reinstalled 10-12_vista64_win7_64_dd_ccc_enu it finished saying it was installed but said there were "warnings" but when i clicked on the log viewer there were no errors or fails.
Went online to test it and crashed 10 mins later. All GFX on low etc.

Dump attached.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

Good job on the asacpi.sys now says 2009 as you said. Still being caused by hardware and we may have to start eliminating possible causes.

Have you tried all the fixes here

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .. A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. You can read more on this error and what to try here... Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Are you overclocking, running a raid, have odd hardware (like a fingerprint reader, accelerometer,etc)?

Ken J

What BIOS version are you running? I may have found something. Do you have an OS dvd in case? do you have a backup and restore point?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64


Yes I've read that help document and had tried all 9 steps pretty much before I even joined the forum.

My ASUS BIOS is 1001 for the ASUS Rampage Formula - up to date. My VBIOS is perhaps out of date but have been unable to enter into a "pure DOS mode" as per Sapphire's instruction. I downloaded a VBIOS version that is slightly later than the one I'm running but it comes back with an error saying that it's not compatible with x64 - even though it's the one they gave me for this OS.

I'm not overclocking.
I have no RAID array
I have no odd hardware apart from a Logitech G15 keyboard and a Logitech MX518. The mouse is daisy chained to the keyboard via USB. I've tried plugging the mouse straight into the back of the tower but it's just the same.
I have the OS on DVD.

But it is good news that it only occurs when gaming.
