BSOD playing WoW, CoD MW3, HeroesOfNewerth

Hi there, I have exactly the same problem. Any time i start playing fullscreen games like World of Warcraft, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Heroes of Newerth - i catch BSOD. At first i was thinking it's due the lack of Power Management and turned off my 2nd HDD - i thought so because recently i've bought NEW card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 TI, but the issue kept bothering me, and it was 3 times in a row within an hour.

PC:
AMD Phenom2 X4 810. 4GB DDR2 Ram,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 TI graphics card
Windows 7 64bit ultimate

Thank you so much! I deleted it and so far everything works fine. I'd be grateful if you didn't close the topic in case problem happened again.

Hi there again! The problem keeps on occuring unfortunately. Once a day i experience a BSOD and always with different reasons like MEMORY_EQUAL_OR_LESS or BAD_POOL_HEADER. I reinstalled my VGA drivers, thoroughly checked system with Firewall, checked registry for errors and performed a CheckDisk, no bad sectors found. BSOD usually happens when i have a fullscreen game running, but sometimes it crashes even when i use my browser only. If it helps, not long ago I unplugged my older HDD, it's been nearly 7 years of it working, i began to catch BSOD and and made me think HDD is about to die, that is why i reinstalled system on a new HDD, and recently i started to plug older one as an additional drive to add up free space.
