Windows 7: BSOD during games, streaming videos, and general browser use

BSOD during games, streaming videos, and general browser use

Hi all,

About 2 weeks ago I started getting random BSOD while streaming videos when using Chrome. So I updated my graphics card drivers thinking that was the problem but I was still getting BSOD when streaming videos and it started happening when I play games through steam as well as just general browser use at times. To give a little more context, right before I started getting the BSOD, I had just finished using my computer for rendering and 3D Modeling. I am not sure if the PC was overclocking or not, but the BSOD's started happening after I finished doing the renders. My PC is about 5 years old and it's currently running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I am not quite sure of all the specs of my computer because my friend help me build it but I have attached the DM Log collector. If anyone have advice on how to stop these BSOD's, I would really appreciate it as I have more rendering jobs to do soon in a couple of weeks.

Please and thank you for helping.

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.
