Windows 7: BSoD while playing various video games or watching videos

22 Feb 2014   #1

BSoD while playing various video games or watching videos

Hello, and thanks in advance to anyone that puts any thought into troubleshooting my BSoD issues.

I recently upgraded my computer and have installed all new hardware except for my HDD. (I did do a complete wipe and fresh install of Windows on my existing HDD after installing the new hardware, however.) Since upgrading my computer, I've been getting BSoDs that seem to rotate between three different error codes. The BSoD crashes often happen while playing various video games or while watching videos on YouTube or news sites.

I've tried everything that I can think of to resolve the issues and am at my wit's end at this point. Any assistance trying to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Possible helpful information:
  • I have performed a clean install of Windows on the HDD an additional 3 times since the original install after the build.
  • I have run MemTest86 on all ram sticks at the same time, as well as each ram stick individually, with zero errors.
  • I have replaced my new video card (including drivers) with an older borrowed video card thinking that my new card was defective. I've still had crashes.
  • I've only installed the video card drivers and not the additional programs packaged with the driver download.
  • I've had crashes while watching videos downloaded onto my computer and while streaming videos online.
  • The games I've played leading up to crashes are: Neverwinter Online, EverQuest, League of Legends.
  • I have not attempted to overclock any hardware.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contained heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. If you still experience BSOD's ona genuine installation, we will be happy to help you solve the problem :)
