Windows 7: BOSD when playing Games in general.

27 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
BOSD when playing Games in general.

For some time now I've been having issues with my computer crashing to a BSOD, random game crashes, or some windows service crashing, not randomly, but when I play games. It usually happens a few minutes into the game, I would say less than 10 minutes into whatever game I'm attempting to play. Other than games it runs fine. Video plays fine as well as everything else.

I have run a memory test, passed. Completely uninstalled and installed updated graphics drivers, flashed Bios, updated windows, updated DirectX, all to no avail.

I'm fairly certain it has something to do with my GPU, though, being that it only happens when I go to play games.

Everything worked fine until about 3 weeks ago.

Most of the blue screens errors are: irql_not_less_or_equal (I'll capture a photo ASAP if need be.)

My system Specs are as follows:
Motherboard: MSI NF750 -G55
CPU: AMD Phenom II 955 Black Edition
Ram: 2xCrucial 2 Gigabyte DDR3 in Duel Channel
PSU: Diablotek 550 watt
GPU: EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti
HDD: 1Tb WD Cevlar Blue
OS: Windows 7 Professional x64

If I missed anything just let me know.

Perform these tests:
Video Card - Stress Test with FurmarkMonitor your temps with Speccy during these testsVideo Memory Test:Does you motherboard have onboard VGA? Does it crash there as well?

To be sure the GPU is at fault itself,
  1. Test it on another computer.
  2. Test another monitor.
  3. Test another GPU on your computer.
  4. Make sure the fans/power supply is working properly/not failing.
Good luck.

PS. Security software?
Make scans with the following:

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.[/LIST]

Ran System File Check, no issues. Installed SP1 for windows 7 x64. Rolled back driver to know good (The driver it used when I bought the graphics card a few months back.) Installed all software suggested. Ran GPU stress test for 20 minutes with no problems. Ran GPU Memory test, no errors. I'm going to load up a game that usually crashes within 10 minutes. I'll follow up after that. Thank you for your help by the way!

Blue screened again. driver_irql_not_less_or_equal. I'm including a new set of log files updated immediately after the computer rebooted. I'm going to try the on board GPU. Also I'm not overclocking anything, I forgot to mention that.

You should take the video memory test for around 15 to 20 passes.
For monitoring the heat/celsius of the system, use Speccy or HWinfo:Upload a screenshot of the summary tab using speccy:

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you, I was called into work early. Anyway, I ran a video memory test for 11 hours (49 passes) and no errors or heating issues. Also, I took a screenshot of what I think you're asking for.

Hi anaua,

I checked the 'Mini Dump'; it does exhibit issues with the 'nVidia GPU'. However, the dump also shows signs of 'software corruption'. It appears that you've tried just about everything logical. As suggested by 'koolkat77', you may also try the 'GPU on another computer'; 'test another GPU' with the system if available; or test the functionality with only the 'on-board graphics'.

If nothing works, you may want to do a 'fresh Windows re-install' and check results. 'ntoskrnl.exe' has consistently occurred in all mini-dumps that you've shared; in my experience, 'Windows re-install' has been the best fix for me. (Please backup all personal data on an external media before attempting a re-install, as it leads to data loss)

Do reply if you have any further questions. I would be glad to assist.
