Windows 7: Stracraft 2 BSOD constantly with extended play.

Stracraft 2 BSOD constantly with extended play.

Starcraft 2 crashes randomly during play, usually after a quick screen change. I think it has something to do with a driver but I'm not sure. I attached my last BSOD zip.

Checking your specs, the only thing that I can offer you is to upgrade your Video and Audio drivers. Also check your temps as Heat and Game do not mix.

error source shows as dxgmms1.sys

I can't connect it to anything specific. It's a directx file not one known to commonly cause any kind of problem though.
In my brief investigation I found the most common symptom was a damaged graphics card.

Hopefully someone else can give you better news than that.
You have a few out of date drivers that could also be to blame though. Your ati graphics driver is out of date but not horribly. Though it wouldn't hurt to update.
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

Also don't know why but you have a ancient secure rom driver loading on your system.

...driver verifier might be in order here...
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

That will create a specific dump file for every driver that encounters a issue and narrow things down.

It's hard for me to really be specific with only one dump file to work from.

If this is the error source, I think I may know what the problem is... somehow I skipped the attachment

Many of us have made the mistake to skip installing Directx when the game installation asks us to do so thinking that since we have Win 7 or Directx 10 and this may be a DX9, we don't have to install it and this is a huge mistake as we must install it.

If this is not your case, I apologize as that is all I got.

Update your DirectX files and see what happens - Download details: DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)

Also are you overclocked? If so, turn your clocks down.

Let us know.
