Really irritating BSOD!! Help needed

Hellos to evry1 seeing this thread. Now to my problem.

Getting the same BSOD over and over again ,especially while playing games like Bad Company 2 ,namely the dreaded "dxgmms1.sys" error along with the message PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON-PAGED_AREA or something in the similar terms. Happens after 10-15 mins of Gaming.

System details:
Windows 7 x64 is the original installed OS and an OEM version

- Age of system hardware: 10 Months
- What is the age of OS installation :same as no reinstalls of Windows done.

All required files are attached. Help would be gr8tly appreciated.

PS: Removed Norton Internet Security after being told to do so by many seven forums mods and users. Just using Windows defender until system is stable again.
PS2: Did a driver sweep and installed latest available catalyst drivers (11.2)
PS3:ran a sfc /scan and results showed no problems.

These were caused by the directX portion of your video driver. As a first step re-install using these.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Then I would remove Symantec which may in fact be causing the third problem and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall your Norton product | Norton Support

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/


The third problem is Memory corruption. Run memtest to check yours

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.

Leave the DirectX - do the graphics driver as Zigzag3143 (Ken J) requested.

Good luck. Just to let you know it can take some time. So don't stare at the screen for about 5 or 6 hours straight without getting yourself a break - might be best to get fresh air while it is testing your RAMs.
