Windows 7: Need help with BSOD issues

Need help with BSOD issues

I helped a friend build a computer fairly recently. At first it worked fine, however now when he plays games with the computer it repeatedly shows a BSOD. Basically everything else he does on it works fine, it's only games that seem to be an issue. I'm wondering if this sounds like a windows 7 issue or if it is likely being caused by something else. Our best guess was that the OS didn't install properly so it was causing problems. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
