Windows 7: BSOD watching twitch.tv livestreams.

BSOD watching twitch.tv livestreams.

Whenever I try to watch someone streaming a game on twitch.tv my computer eventually bsods. Sometimes it only takes a few minutes, and sometimes I can watch for an extended amount of time, but eventually it will bsod.

I have attached the past 3 bsod's. I have had over 10 in the past few weeks (I don't watch twitch that often but I do enjoy it occasionally).

My computer is a Dell XPS17 i7 2760 8gb ram GT 555M

Thanks to anyone who is taking the time to help.

Hi.


Remove kaspersky from your system for testing purposes.


Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials with windows firewall enable.


For complete system security you can use this Good and Free system security combination.


Write here all your system specs,cpu,gpu,ram,,motherboard,psu....everything.

Thank you for your quick reply. I uninstalled kaspersky and installed MSE with windows firewall enabled. My motherboard is made by Dell and the model number is 0XN71K. I have a 9 cell battery in my laptop. I am not sure other specs you would like. Just let me know and I will get them for you.

During the test\stress
monitor your GPU temperatures. If you see artifacts, or the temperature of your GPU exceeds 80C, stop the test.


Then run
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.



Finish and post back.

Thank you. I will test the solution by watching a twitch stream. If I don't bsod (or if I do) I will report back.
