Windows 7: Random BSOD's While or not gaming

Random BSOD's While or not gaming

Hello , i would like to say
Im new to this forum , but i must say i frequently come here to look but never registered so here i am.

I alrdeady wanna say thank you for taking your time to look at this post.

So im really in stress here and absolutely DON't Know what do, i've been googling all night trying to find out what it is but i found like 250 problems
And i still dindt know what to do

I was hoping someone could help me out
I was playing a game (Heroes of Newerth) When suddenly it crashed So i reconnected
Crashed. THEN i got a blue screen.
After that it all went downhill.
Blue screens in every game now and even sometimes blue screens when im just on Windows or windows just freezes and the sound also.

my System specs:
Intel Core2Quad @ 2.4 GHz
4GB DDR2 RAM (Samsung)
640GB Harddisk WD
Gigabyte ATI HD Radeon 4850
Cooler Master PRO 750W

The temperatures are fine and i never overclocked anything.

Ok so first i tried cleaning the dust out of my CPU and Graphic card since i figured some dust might be blocking off some of the Hardware.
That dind't FIX anything

I tried reseating my RAM and Graphic card even my CPU.
I tried testing My RAM by putting one out and put the other one in
Well both RAM Failed at the memory diagnostic tool but that couldn't be the problem
Because if they both failed my System wouldn't probarly even start right?

I should also mention that the Diagnostic Tool even fails to complete, because it freezes

I tried registry cleaner dind't work either

Updated graphics drivers ( even when i had the latest steam does it automatically for me)
Removed old drivers.

I get different BSOD Examples :

AND A LOT MORE The problem is ITS ALWAYS a new Error

It's just at random times my pc Runs games for Approx 1 min or it can even be 10 seconds.

The event viewer gives me loads of 1001 errors when i checked but nothing informative

I will send a mini dump tommorow (Within 12 hours) because right now i wont be able to reach my pc.

EDIT : I hardly think it would be my drivers cause im running this system settings for 7-8 months now.

If i have to provide any more information please tell so

I already THANK you for trying to help me

Hi Micronuub and Welcome.
It sounds to me, without seeing any files, as though you could have caught a virus or something similar.
I'd download, install and update Malwarebytes' Free. Run a full scan in Safe Mode.
There's a rootkit that's been doing the rounds since December that shows itself through blue screens with a IRQ not less or equal stop code. It usually blames the iastor.sys driver as the cause.
It starts by blue screening/freezing on random programs, then when trying to boot into Normal Mode, then when you try to boot into Safe Mode. Eventually it will allow no access whatsoever.
If this sounds familar, Download TDSSKiller and run it in Safe Mode. Just to rule out the rootkit.
As long as you can keep Safe Mode open for 30 seconds or so it should be enough to run TDSSKiller and remove the rootkit.

I'm not saying for definite that this is your problem but it won't hurt to run these couple of scans to eliminate the possibility.
