Windows 7: BSOD crashes infrequently while playing CSGO,

BSOD crashes infrequently while playing CSGO,

Hey there, thanks for taking a look.

Pretty much once every couple of months while I'm playing a game (through Steam) the computer crashes, loops a soundbyte for a couple of seconds and brings me to a BSOD. I don't think it has happened while not playing a game, but it has probably happened about 5-6 time now all with the same reason I guess - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. Thanks for taking a look again guys.

Welcome to SF, StrongM .

I would start off by updating two old drivers.

lmvm rtwlanu

fffff880`06ce9000 fffff880`06df2000   rtwlanu    (deferred)             
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\rtwlanu.sys
    Image name: rtwlanu.sys
    Browse all global symbols  functions  data

lmvm iusb3xhc
    Loaded symbol image file: iusb3xhc.sys
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\iusb3xhc.sys
    Image name: iusb3xhc.sys

If that doesn't cut it I would run a test on the RAM, in this fashion:

Testing the RAM:

Tip   Tip
  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

This will help you to determine where the issue is origination from (if any):

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
It is a RAM, a bad RAM.

But if you have got a result like that:
It is a motherboard issue. The particular slot is bad.
Post back with the results!
