Windows 7: Bluescreens from Chrome/tabbing in and out of fullscreen games.

10 Dec 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Bluescreens from Chrome/tabbing in and out of fullscreen games.

Been going on for several months now, computer's around 2 years old and some tell me it's probably the ram going dodgy, but painfully long tests have been done on it and shown no issue.

Happens sporadically when faffing about in Chrome, and with some degree of reliability when tabbing into and out of games (enough to have a microcringe when doing so).

On average there's a bluescreen every 2-3 days.

Updating Windows fully will most certainly help, and will help troubleshoot the issue by ruling out older drivers.

Post back with any new BSOD's once Windows 7 is fully updated - you have quite a lot to do, so get cracking.
