Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

BSOD while gaming


I'm new to the forums so I just wanted to say thanks for checking out my post here.

I've been experiencing some blue screens while playing SC2 and Mass Effect 2. I'm kind of confused about it since I've done all I know how to when it comes to stability checking; memtest, chkdsk, occt etc. all come up golden. So, I was hoping to crowdsource a little expertise.

This is a partly new build I had to throw together in a hurry when my old system bit the big one.

MSI P55A-G55
8gig Mushkin 1333
2x 250gig WD hdd (carryover from old rig, 4 years old)
8800gt (also 4 year old carryover)
Antec Truepower 750 psu

Thanks for your time,

Thanks for your time,

Hello Dave,
To enable us to 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.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kb) in the drop down box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.

Hi Dleslie and welcome to seven forums

The crash was probably caused by your afd.sys which is part of the operating system. To correct this problem I would run something called system file check to verify and repair your system files.

There is a report at the end and we need the results

To run SFC go to start>cmd>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow.

Dont forget to tell us the results.

Thanks for your help.

The results: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

I also have these files I whipped up according to the forum's format thread. Maybe they will help.

Hello Dave,

I would first remove AVG including Identity Protection. AVG is a known issue of causing BSOD on some Windows 7 System. Use this removal tool to delete all the left overs when AVG is uninstalled: AVG - Download tools
You may use Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) or Avast Anti-Virus in it's place,

Avast: avast! - Download Free Antivirus Software or Internet Security
These two AV do not intend to cause BSOD.
Also, the dump blames AVG.

Also, look at this driver.

RTCore64.sys Wed May 25 18:39:12 2005 - RivaTuner/EVGA Precision/MSI Afterburner
Uninstall it - known cause of BSOD because they use old driver and causing conflicts

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff80002dfc9e7, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff8800a153868, Exception Record Address
Arg4: fffff8800a1530d0, Context Record Address

While this minidump has incorrect symbols (where did you download it from? did you install SP1?) we can still give you some generic things to narrow the focus.

You also have driver from as far back as 2005 that need updating and they could be the cause.

It is blaming a memory exception on an un named driver. I would:

1- Run memtest to verify your memory

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.


Beyond that, please run Verifier with these settings:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, 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).

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"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- 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).

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

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.

If that doesn't work, post back and we'll have to see about fixing the registry entry off-line:
Delete these registry keys (works in XP, Vista, Win7):
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDrivers
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\VerifyDriverLevel
Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Windows drivers for advanced users

Let us know if you require further assistance with this
