Windows 7: BSOD when launching games or even VLC or just chrome

BSOD when launching games or even VLC or just chrome


I have no real knowledge of BIOS issues, so I hope I've followed the BSOD - Posting Instructions correctly.

Let me know if there's any other information you need.

Thank you

Ahh anyone there?

I hope this isn't a sign that my PC is so screwed no one bothered replying.

Have I not posted properly?

Nobody bothered replying because your Windows installation is counterfeit. You have an ACER PID on a retail ASUS 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.
