Windows 7: BSOD while gaming/browsing

08 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
BSOD while gaming/browsing

Hello all,

So recently I started experiencing random BSOD (Windows has encountered a fatal error and must close to prevent damage) while gaming (playing World of Warcraft & Final Fantasy XI). I had planned on reformatting in the near future to get rid of other versions of Windows/Linux I wasn't using anymore. I was hoping maybe the issue would be resolved after I did that, but apparently it didn't go away. More recently I've had a couple BSOD while browsing online.. Here are some of my system specs (system is about 2 years old, built it myself):

OS - Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H
Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Dual Core
Graphics: BFG GeForce 9800 GT 1GB
450 Watt Power Supply

Attached my zipped file with memory dumps & perf. report;

At first I thought it was RAM.. did a memory diagnostic test and received no errors..

Any suggestions or assistance is appreciated!

Crash dumps

I opened my dumps in WinDbg, and found something is causing csrss.exe to close;
not sure how to identify which driver could be the culprit, any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
