Windows 7: BSOD and crashes to desktop playing certain games

BSOD and crashes to desktop playing certain games

Hey guys at Windows 7 Help Forums,
For the past several months I have been having huge issues while playing games.
The issues seem to differ from game to game, however Dark souls 2 and occasionally Dota 2 will sometimes cause a BSOD. Sometimes instead of BSOD games will simply crash to desktop without warning or error messages. This happens anytime I want to play GTA 4, Dota 2 any bioshock titles and many other games. a large majority of my video games have become simply unplayable. From what I can tell all my drivers are up to date and my computer is free from malware.
My specs are pretty good and nothing appears to be overheating.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

CPU - intel i5 quad core
Ram - 8gb
GPU - Geforce GTX 670
Motherboard - ASUS P8Z77-V LK

Kindest regards,
Blaise Parnell

Hi Blaise Parnell.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.
