Windows 7: Different BSOD messages when gaming (WoW, Diablo3, Borderlands 2 etc.)

Different BSOD messages when gaming (WoW, Diablo3, Borderlands 2 etc.)


I have been getting alot of different BSODS when playing games for some time now, it's very annoying because i won't have the chance to play for more than 15-30 minutes if i'm lucky.

I attached a zip file with the dumpfiles.

Some of the different BSODS that I get are for example:

Page Fault in Non Paged Area
System Service Exception

Some the files that seem to have caused these BSODs are:

ntokrnl.exe mostly but also the ones below some times.

portcls.sys ...etc.

Nothing happens when i browse the internet or watch movies etc. It only occurs when playing games. Also don't ask me about trying safe mode because I can't play games in safe mode -.-

Thanks in advance for any help!

You have 2 antiviruses?
MSE and Ad-aware. Please remove Ad-aware and keep MSE only.

I will come back with more suggestions.

Update: You sure do have a lot of variety BSoDs, but most are on Bug Check 50

It's usual causes are:
Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), 
Faulty system service, Antivirus,  Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS
Additional suggestions:
BIOS-version och -datum	MS-7260 V1.9, 2007-09-06
Look for an update on your BIOS version. The current one is too old!

Make a hard drive test from the hard drive manufacturers website

Run Disk Check on your hard disk for file system errors and bad sectors on it
Disk Check

Do these and let us know the results
