Windows 7: BSOD when playing Hearthstone, probably caused by drivers

Apparently you are using an OEM activation for a retail gigabyte motherboard, which makes the installation counterfeit.

And any sort of errors are possible for a counterfeit installation. To have a safe and steady computer, get a genuine windows license.

I'm sorry, but you seem to misunderstand my problem. All I wanted was to identify the corrupted driver using the memory dump provided, so I could proceed to some kind of solution. I assure you, that my OS is completely fine, didn't dissapoint me in more than three years

Apparently you are misunderstanding me. A counterfeit install may cause any sort of issue, anytime. It will be best for you to get a valid license before any further attempt to troubleshoot.

Arc is correct.Counterfeit installations such as yours contains 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.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them
