Windows 7: BSOD while playing FINAL FANTASY XIV

17 Sep 2014   #1

Windows 7 64bit

Today I started having issues while playing FINAL FANTASY XIV. Three times during intense activity within the game, my PC began to lock up and freeze. I didn't get a bsod screen pop up for some reason however I still had to manually reboot my PC.

During two of the crashes the PC simply stuck a frozen image on the screen and failed to respond. While during the final crash the monitor went black.

I've done some testing since the first initial crash today and have only been able to get my PC to crash while playing FINAL FANTASY and not through normal pc usage (surfing the web, etc).

I also use 3D modeling software for school and have tried to see if my pc would crash but i havent had any issues with doing so.

Oh and almost forgot I use a NVIDIA GTX 660

Attached is my memory dump information. Thanks for the help in advance.

So I went ahead and did the graphics card stress test from Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Nothing crashed during the test. My video card maintained 87 degrees throughout the test at 25 fps.
My results are
BURN-IN SCORE: 2249 points
22211 frames, 24 FPS, 87C
Resolution: 1920x1080 (FS) - AA:0 samples
FPS: min:25, max:26, avg:24 - OPTIONS: DynBkg

Tonight once I head off to bed Ill be running memtest to see if it is one of the memory sticks gone bad.

So I weren't ahead and ran Memtest86 over night. I had 0 errors over 7 passes.

I'm going to start messing around seeing if this is being caused by some kind of software or driver issue.

Any ideas on what to do next?
