BSOD - dxgmms1.sys

Hi,

When playing games, im frequently getting a blue screen error:

Upon running Windbg, i got the probable cause as : dxgmms1!VIDMM_GLOBAL::ReferenceAllocationForPreparation+2b
But this isnt making any sense to me.

Any help?

I ran memtest86 with no issue and furmark with max temp reaching 84, but no crashes.
dmp file zipped and attached.

Thanks!

These are all Windows drivers and they shouldn't say unavailable. You might have some OS corruption. Run a system file check - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

sfc scannow does say some files are corrupt, but i cant get the details. both files are attached.

Btw, i had the latest driver for my card, but i rolled back since this version was what i had been using previously.
Ive re-installed the latest drivers. Now trying to work out how to fix the SFC scan results.

It doesn't show anywhere in your logs that you had a blue screen. Have you tried completely removing the video card from device manager and then reinstalling the drivers?

I found this in your event logs. Try running a disk check and hard drive scan on your OS drive.

yep, like i said, i had a blue screen, but no dumps.
I ran memtest, 2 passes, no errors.

Regarding display divers. I chose complete uninstall, then reboot, then deleted drivers using device manager, then driver cleaner, finally reboot and installed latest drivers.

disk thing didnt show any errors.
neither did the 8 passes of memtest
And a new error. This time when running Colin McRae DiRT.
It seems to happen only when gfx card is being used a lot, but the gpu temp stays below 70 degrees.
ive also done a repair install of windows to correct the files sfc /scannow was not able to fix.
