Windows 7: BSOD F4 Trying to play games

BSOD F4 Trying to play games

Hi I have been getting BSOD's each time I play a game for longer than 30min, whether its is old games or new games after a certain time my PC decides it hates me and blue screens with the error code 0000000F4 I will attach a dmp file and if there is any more information needed please tell me, for I am not very smart when it comes to these things.

So far I have ran: Chkdsk /f /r on all three hard drives as well as Seatools long and short scans and they all have passed.

I also formatted about a month a go and it is very strange that I am
having these screens.

Currently I am in SAFEMODE WITH NETWORKING. Until the problem is fixed I will have to stay in this mode

Your BSODs are stop 0xF4; and those are disc related issues.

Probably caused by : csrss.exe

As you cannot boot the computer up (it appears from your last post), you need a bootable tool to check the HDDs.

Do it for both your HDDs: SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use
The Samsung one first, then the Seagate one.
** Note that you have AHCI as your storage controller, so you will need to set it to IDE first, as stated in the guide.

Let us know the results.

Right before your post I decided to make sure that all my drivers are up to date so I updated NVIDIA experience as well as certain things on my motherboard (chipset, Audio, etc.) and it seems that for now it has worked I have not gotten any BSOD's so far I am also able to boot up in normal mode, but in case it starts to act up again I will make sure to try your solution and post if it worked.

Side note: Would it hurt if I were to do the SeaTools scans any way? Just so I can cover all the basis

Thank you

BSoD's whenever I play games
My PC seems to run fine as long as it isn't doing any CPU-requiring jobs such as playing games. This may be caused by dust inside my cabinet, which I won't dare to open since it'll cancel my insurance. I'd like to avoid getting it repaired since they'll do anything they can to charge me money...
