Windows 7: BSOD playing games or stress testing, bugcheck str 0x7f_8

18 Jan 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Hello Yoyo,

Yes, I have updated my bios. I used files that were available through the Asus website, not other websites.

The crashes seem to occur consistently within 10 minutes of starting up the walking dead or any other game. Sometimes it happens after 1 minute or it might happen after 8 minutes. How long it exactly takes varies. Also, some games don't crash at all. Especially older games, like Disciples 2, I can run these games for hours without a single BSOD.

I've updated my Atheros drivers and I'll let you know if it makes a difference. I added the files you requested to this post.

Also, updating the atheros drivers didn't make a difference. I deleted the outdated usb mouse drivers and only use the microsoft basic drivers which seems to make the BSOD's happen less frequently.
