BSOD when playing Shogun 2 Total War

Hi everyone,

the title pretty much covers it all: the computer randomly crashes when playing Shogun 2. I've added a minidump file in the hopes that someone can tell me what exactly goes wrong.

Thanks in advance!

I will analyze your .dmp when I'm home infront of my machine.
Hold on !

Try making a full scan with Malwarebytes
Furmark
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
And very recommend: Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable, if any BSOD, upload the .dmp file and it will hopefully tell us which one were the faulty one.

thanks for helping out, gonna check my drivers right now

the drivers are certainly to blame:
when I started up driver verifier, my computer was unable to perform the necessary
reboot, so I had to boot in safe mode and disable the program.
After I had done that and started the pc in normal mode, my avast antivirus was
disabled and I had no internet access.

Both issues are fixed now but as I said, there's something seriously wrong with those
drivers of mine

Strange.
Are there any new .dmp to be uploaded?

Hopefully we'll get a better .dmp file this time.

well, no recent BSOD's:

like before, Shogun 2 shuts down after a couple of minutes and I get an error screen saying "Shogun 2 TW has stopped working", but unlike a couple of days ago, the computer doesn't show a BSOD afterwards.

Guess this thread doesn't belong in the "crashes and debugging" department anymore...

Thanks for your time!
