BSOD playing Simcity while watching Twitch stream


A bsod has occured twice in the last week and I am requesting some diagnostics on the cause of them.
I have a suspicion that it is my video drivers.

Hi Evroz621,

The crash dump analysis:
Crash Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe; relates to 'NT Kernel & System' and is updated.

This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.

*                                                                             *

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff800030dd36c, The address that the exception occurred at

Arg4: 0000000000000000, Parameter 1 of the exception

Please try the following steps:

1. Try uninstalling 'SimCity' (for troubleshooting purpose) and check results (Please share how you sourced it)

2. Please update the 'display drivers' for 'nVidia GeForce GTX 460 adapter' from here: Drivers | GeForce
Alternatively, you may try removing the 'current display drivers'; restart the system; and install fresh drivers from the above mentioned link. To remove the driver, open 'Device Manager' > Locate & Expand 'Display Adapters' > Right click and uninstall 'nVidia related driver' > Follow through with the uninstall process > Restart the system > Install fresh drivers from the link > Recheck performance.

3. Run the 'Disk Check (Command Prompt)' using 'Option 2' in the following tutorial: Disk Check

4. Also run an 'anti-virus scan' to see if the system is infected. You may install 'Microsoft Security Essentials' Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

5. Check with the motherboard manufacturer for a 'BIOS Update', if available:
BiosMinorRelease = 15
BiosVendor = American Megatrends Inc.
BiosVersion = 0802   
BiosReleaseDate = 08/24/2010
Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.
