Windows 7: BSODS while Streaming and playing Battlefield 3

BSODS while Streaming and playing Battlefield 3

Hi guys this is driving me up a wall.. I have had BSODS for the past 2 months or so. I have done everything from memtests to chkdsks to driver verifier. I only get crashes when im streaming BF3. I was getting crashes while playing it but i updated my video drivers a few times the driver sweeper way and it started to work. now i cant stream and play at the same time. I have played Skyrim for 4 hours straight and get no bsods what so ever

Memtest comes back with no errors, and driver verifier crashes while streaming it but just artifacts and feezes and doesnt restart so its not making mindumps.
I have windbg x64 and i learned sorta kinda how to read and load drivers and analyze. but maybe you guys can help me figure this out.

I have also scanned my pc with Malwarebytes twice and i have MSE. everything comes back clean.

i have tried updating everything. Do you think its a bad video card. i uploaded the minidump.rar it includes all bsods and my dxdiag inside.
please someone help me. I finally set my stream the way i want it to go and Crysis 3 open beta is coming soon and i want to stream that.

Edit: sorry guys i read the rules before posting but thought the dxdiag and dumps would help i have now uploaded the right stuff. sorry.

my first suspect would be power Supply or Overheating, please add your full system specs in your profile here and make sure your make and model of PSU and Ram is there.

Also please monitor your temperatures and post them here, comparing idle with Stress tested.

Please update your video card drivers from Here, please also check for any updates to your network drivers Here

I also notice you have a known blue screen causer in your drivers:

ASACPI    fffff880`045d5000    fffff880`045dd000    Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005 (42476c4c)    00003c77        ASACPI.sys
Its an ASUS driver for some of their bloat ware that comes with their mother boards, though I noticed you didn't have any of it installed, so I'm wondering if simply deleting the driver would be ok? Or you can check their download section Here to see if there are any updates for the driver.

I seriously doubt your PSU is up to the job and if this was my build I would use at least a bronze certified 500W like a corsair but would prefer a 600w for some headroom.

I reckon you need at least 330w ish so as a guide check your required power usage with this calculator.

Mixing and matching Ram is not a great idea although you can sometimes get away with it and I also suggest try removing the 2x1Gb Gskill OC edition and see if you can still get the crashes ?

I actually have a 600 w Diablotek(yeah im not buying those anymore) and when i plug it in and flip the switch at the back the computer stays on so i think thats fried. I have tried removing the 1gb sticks and still it happens. i just tried putting that 600 w in there and it still stays on even though the pc is shutdown. I had a lot of dust in the 400w psu so i blew that all out(might be overheating) I also have updated my video drivers like 6 times already with the driver sweeper solution, is there anything different about the new fusion sweeper as im using an old build of driver sweeper? I know mixing ram is a bad idea but i figured if they were the same freq and mhz and manufacturer then wth right? Ive used a different calculator like that before and it told me 330 like you said, but ill try this one. I think i might have to RMA that 600w Power supply since its going on the last year of its warranty. I used to have that asus garbage in my pc but i then removed it on the last windows install. Thats weird that its in there. Thank you guys. Ill post back with all the results.

source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the

The address of the WHEA strucuture points to an error regarding the FSB, although the error was produced by MCE, which means the CPU detected a hardware error and then reported it to the operating system, resulting in a Stop 0x124 bugcheck.

It is best to stress test the CPU for confirmation:Enable "Round off checking" before the test (see first post below tutorial).

If the test produces no errors, it is best to use these steps:All the hardware seeming to be running stable and tests reporting no errors, could mean a bad motherboard.

In the event viewer it always says my hdd has a bad sector. ive run chkdsk mutliple times and repaired it. Could this be an issue? Im thinking it is. I will run Prime95 and report back results.

If the bad sector has been repaired, then it would have been a soft bad sector, however, we can test the hard-drive after seeing the Prime95 results.
