all drivers up-to date: still getting BSODs

Hi Guys,

according to Driver Genius all of my drivers are up to date but I'm still getting BSODs while gaming.. I really do not have any idea about what's going on..

I also ran memtest - no errors found

Thanks for your help in advance

I feel the same. I'm getting BSoDs. Can you give us more details about the BSoD? Like the codes it gives you and the references it picks up. If this is still happening in a few days you could try backing up and then System Restoring back to before the first BSoD attack. If all fails there's always backup to external hard-drive and the reinstall Window. But that's a last resort.

DaTa82,
Welcome to 7 Forums.

Have you tried these?
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
and what Anti Virus are you using?

Hi Dapizz -

the problem exists from the very beginning on. I bought a brand new PC last year (September) and I have every time BSODs while gaming. ONLY while gaming - for working purposes and surfing on the net I can use my PC without any problems. But every time I want to play with some games there is a BSOD

I tried to format everything several times. I even reinstalled Windows at least 5-6 times. I really don't know what else I could do.

My latest minidumps files are attached in the zip file.

Hi -

mycrosoft security esential - so that shouldn't be the problem

I haven't tried driver verifier yet - I'm not sure if I have enough PC knowledge for this..

I am using the same AV .....MSE

Did your system ever work when you played games on it?
If yes, then restore it back to date it was working for you.

Back up your system before and after making changes. IMHO

I can and could play with some games without any problems (red Alert 3, CC3)- but some others games always crash to Desktop or I have a BSOD

I tried to put in an other video card - same results (BSODs). I brought back my video card also to the store where I've bought my PC - they tested it for 1 week and could not detect any issues.

Have you done the basic things like:
1. Full AV Scan
2. Ran Malwarebytes Anti Malware
3. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

These are just a few but hang in there and I will get more help coming your way.

1. Full AV Scan. I'm running a full test right now
2. Ran Malwarebytes Anti Malware - not in the last couple of weeks - which program do you recommend for it?
3. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool: I let it run for a whole night - no errors

thanks so much for your replies - this is really appreciated!

DaTa82,
Your appreciation is more than welcomed.

This is a free program but run the full scan.
