BSOD while playing World of Warcraft (WoW)

Hey,

I have had this problem for a couple of weeks. My laptop get BSOD everytime I'm playing WoW especially when I'm doing battlegrounds, PvP, etc. ...

I have tried to reinstall Windows 7, updated all my drivers and tried registry cleaner and pc clean-up. But won't work anyway it keeps "crashing". I think the problem is my display or graphic driver, but not sure.

Uploaded a zip --->

Thanks for help!

Install Speccy from my signature, I would like to see your system temperatures (CPU and GPU particularly) please, it may be due to a overheating issue due to a build-up of dust or insufficient cooling.

You stated that you have a laptop in your first post, which in my experience, over-heating and cooling could be causing problems here; laptops are infamous for overheating very quickly when playing games.

One last point, please fully update your system specifications using information from the Speccy program too, it will help others understand your problem.

Thanks,

Harry

What are the temperatures when playing games? 62'C when playing World of Warcraft?

Thanks for uploading your system specifications, but can add it to your profile; go to your UserCP and on the left pane you should see update/edit system specifications, fill all the information from Speccy onto there, as of then the system specifications will be part of your every post.

Thanks,
