Windows 7: BSOD, playing WoW, didn't get error down

BSOD, playing WoW, didn't get error down

Getting BSOD durring various games, most recent was WoW. Ran memtest 86 v4.0a, 2 passes, zero errors. It happens way more often if I alt+tab out to use IE. If I don't use the browser at all, it almost never happens.

BSOD report per instructions and the latest .dmp file attached.

System specs are in my forum profile, hope that is ok to post.

Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64? x64
- the original installed OS on the system? yes, on a new SSD that I installed
- an OEM or full retail version? full retail
- OEM = came pre-installed on system
- Full Retail = you purchased it from retailer
- What is the age of system (hardware)? 4 years I think, I can't remember really
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) I had windows 7 for a while on it before I got any BSOD's

These were related to your video driver. I would re-install newest using this method.

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver.

In order to do that we recommend using - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Thanks for quick reply, I wiped out the old video driver with driver sweeper, and got an updated video driver via and used the GPU auto-detect. Going to run it for a bit and see what shakes loose.
