Windows 7: BSOD from atikmpag.sys while playing CS:GO or Payday 2

ESET found something and I deleted all the possibly infected files. Kaspersky didn't find anything with all features turned on. But that ESET took 8 hours -guess I need to do some space management.

And for the voltages you asked essenbe, here are them:
CPU Vcore = 1.368 V
3.3V = 3.216 V
5V = 4.918 V
12V = 11.880 V

They tend to change sometimes but these were the values they usually stay at.

OK, good. I'm glad you got rid of some bad stuff. If your +12V goes lower, that could be a problem. Try that and see if things are any better.

I'll try; but as far as I can remember, I can only modify voltages of CPU related things. I'm not sure if I can add some voltage to 12V. I'll post after I check it and if I can modify it, I'll change and log back in.

No, you can't. That is just the readings of the power put out by your PSU. You can't change it. ATX specs are +/- 5% which means if your +12V drops much more, it will be out of specs.

Yeah, it was true that I couldn't modify the 12V, 5V and 3.3V from BIOS. However, I saw that my core CPU speed was up to 208 from 200 and took it back down to it's original value -that was a thing I did to get the RAMs working at 1664 MHz instead of 1600. But I doubt that it would solve the issue.

The readings I got from the BIOS about the Voltage values got only higher, not lower. Like the +12V got to 11.918 and went back to 11.880.

But I couldn't quite get what you wanted me to try:

Did I miss something?

No, you didn't miss anything. I was just saying if your 12V got much lower, it would probably be a new PSU. There is nothing you can do about that. What you see now are the values at idle. What they do under stress, I have no idea.

Ok; thank you for trying to help at least.

Now I know that my problem is most probably driver based, I can try to install some old but stable versions for my GPU driver.

Thank you again!
And I will notify if that fixes my problem and mark the thread as solved.

Actually, we don't know whether it is hardware or driver related. Have you been watching your CPU and GPU temps? If not, get a good CPU Temp monitoring program and a CPU temp monitoring program and keep track of them at all times. If you have a GPU monitoring program, can you tell me what it is? Many of them have on screen displays which will put your GPU temp (among a lot of other info) on your screen while you are gaming.

Also, you need to have an active anti virus running at all times. I would suggest you install Microsoft Security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows) and keep using it, at least until we get your problems solved. Then you can use whatever anti virus you would like. But, you really need to have one.

I use CPUID CPU-Z to look at temps or just AMD OverDrive to look and modify them if need be and I use GPU-Z to monitor my GPU from time to time. I haven't tried monitoring while doing things that may cause problem; but it can very well be hardware related as you said -since this is my third graphics card over 4 years and the other two was faulty but I managed to use them for over a year each.

But running Neverwinter Online doesn't seem to cause problems -even if I play it for over 6 hours. And that game gives the GPU and CPU both some workload so I don't think the problem is heat related. It might do with DirectX or maybe it's something about those games that uses 2D/3D simultaneously.

By the way I haven't looked for the drivers yet; but I'll look into that from Guru3D.com -they usually have outdated but stable drivers as an archive if I remember correctly.

And for the issue about AntiViruses -I used to use Kaspersky as I mentioned; but I can't afford it now and I haven't seen a day where Microsoft Security Essentials found a virus yet -maybe it's too good to get a virus, I really don't know. (no sarcasm)
