Windows 7: Random BSOD probably caused by graphic card

16 Mar 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSOD probably caused by graphic card

I need some help to identify what is causing random BSOD's. During a game of Dying Light my computer crashed and restarted. Ever since I get random BSOD's in game, in browser or just simple in idle mode. I have already swapped the HDD, reinstalled Win 7 and swapped memory. So MB, GPU and PSU are potentially the source of problems.

I have attached the log.

Windows sometimes advises me to install the videocard drivers after a BSOD, they are however already installated. Updating, reinstalling etc. didn't change anything. (this is the main reason why I suspect the GPU to be the bad guy)

Your installation of Windows is counterfeit. You have an ACER PID on an MSI motherboard.

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation and are still experiencing BSODs, upload your new logs we will be happy to help you solve them.
