Windows 7: BSOD While gaming Error 0x0000000A

BSOD While gaming Error 0x0000000A

I have been in the beta test for an online game Smite now for over a month. During the past 2 days my computer reboots very early into the game. The last few reboots have resulted in a BSOD. I have not installed any new hardware or software that I can think of, especially over the last few days. This is a computer my friend built so I am not sure of all of the specs, and I know he built it relatively cheap. I have done a decent amount of gaming on it, and this is my first encounter with any issues like this. I appreciate any and all help.

I appreciate the help on this. I was able to find the audio drivers I needed. I then uninstalled and reinstalled both skype and Smite and updated both to the most current versions. This has not been very successful. I still will get BSoD frequently while playing Smite, and I have even got it several times outside of the game while just browsing the net. Any other advice would be much appreciated, as I would really prefer to be able to play this game. I have attached the most recent log.

Thanks in advance.

No security software?

Make scans with the following:

-Kaspersky TDSSKiller-ESET online scannerIn addition, you may run the malicious software removal tool and WDO:Microsoft Security Essentials.
Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
Perform a System File Check:
  • Click on the
  • Type CMD on Search
  • Left click and Run as Administrator
  • Type SFC /scannow
Full tutorial here:Upload a screenshot of your hard disk using CrystalDiskInfo: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:Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Alright, so I still seem to be having issues. The BSoD has been happening more frequently it seems. Sometimes during a restart, sometimes while my computer is in sleep mode overnight. I did run the driver verifier, and went ahead and picked up Microsoft Security Essentials. Here is a recent log. Hope this helps.
