Windows 7: BSoD while playing any better quality games.

BSoD while playing any better quality games.

Hey guys,

So for the past few weeks, I've been getting dozen times of BSoD. It only happens when I open some Youtube videos, playing some "Better Quality" games like League of Legends, Prototype 2 stuffs like that.

I heard from some of my friends that it was about my 'Graphic Card' that was being too warm, thus BSoD. So I've been putting my 'huge fan' pointing on it hoping it would work, manage to actually watch some youtube videos actually.

PS: First time posting this, sorry if i did not provide enough information. Please guide me through and help me fix this if possible. Thanks.

You're using Nvidia drivers dated back to June 2012. See what you can do about updating those.

As for the crashes themselves, from the crashdumps I've looked at so far they all are rather identical except for one, which involved memory corruption during what appears to be an attempt to access a network-mounted directory/drive or some other network-shared resource. Make sure your network drivers are updated.

The rest of the crashes involve video-related operations in which your graphics driver was unable to continue performing the requested work because it lacked sufficient resources to do so. One can't dive more into this because minidumps don't harbor such information. For more data, you can turn on Driver Verifier and let your system crash a couple more times after that and provide us the crashdumps, and you can also go ahead and upload MEMORY.DMP from your Windows directory to a 3rd-party filesharing site for us to look at (they compress very well when archived). The kernel dump (MEMORY.DMP file) only is from your latest crash, so keep that in mind (it's overwritten after every crash).

Error code: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000009a (3221225626) - Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API.
I often see this from issues dealing with people running out of RAM entirely, or driver pool memory got filled up by a misbehaving driver. One can't check memory allocations using commands like !memusage without at least a kernel dump.
