Windows 7: BSOD Playing WoW and Diablo 3

22 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 64bit
BSOD Playing WoW and Diablo 3


I've had 3 bluescreens in the last 2 days.
Two while playing WoW and one playing Diablo 3 Beta.

I'm having some trouble with the permon /report, when i try to run it i get and an error saying 'The system cannot find the path specified' I've uploaded a screenshot of this, so if anyone can help with that as I couldn't work out how to get it to work.
The most recent BSOD (Today) it crashed as it was creating the dump, so I don't think that is included, but there were two yesterday that worked, I think.
I've included the system dumps, any help is very much appreciated.

- 64 bit
- It is the original OS
- Full Retail Version

- The mobo,ram and cpu about 8 months, everything else 1.5-2 years.
- The OS install is about 6 months old.

Thanks for any help, and if you need more information just ask, I think that is everything.

The above crash information can be found by reading through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

To supplement the information in that link:
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

I would also recommend you check for Windows corruption since the driver that the timestamp could not be verified for was a Windows driver.
  • Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

Make sure to read through the Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try link carefully.
