Windows 7: BSOD alt-tabbing from CS:GO to Chrome, "Caused By Driver win32k.sys"

12 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
BSOD alt-tabbing from CS:GO to Chrome, "Caused By Driver win32k.sys"

As the title says, I've had a few BSOD errors, and each time it has occurred when alt-tabbing from CS:GO to Chrome. Both times it flashed too quickly for me to look at the details (I've since changed the necessary settings so that that won't happen again). Using Blue Screen View I got the following:
061215-25459-01.dmp	12/06/2015 23:00:01	SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION	0x0000003b	00000000`c0000005	fffff960`002cc165	fffff880`0599e110	00000000`00000000	win32k.sys	win32k.sys+23c165	Multi-User Win32 Driver	Microsoft® Windows® Operating System	Microsoft Corporation	6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255)	x64	ntoskrnl.exe+6f840					C:\Windows\MiniDump\061215-25459-01.dmp	4	15	7600	277,256	12/06/2015 23:00:55
I built this PC a week ago with some donated parts from a friend (GPU and PSU) and the rest new. Running relatively well, I believe all my drivers etc. are up to date. Only issue is that I've been unable to install the "Intel(R) Management Engine Interace" update (no idea as to the importance/relevance of all this, but it's been the only other 'snag' since building).

My Specs are:

Mobo - ASUS Z97M Plus
CPU - Intel i5-4690k
GPU - AMD R9 270x
Storage - WD 1TB HDD
Memory - Kingston HyperX FURY Series 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3
PSU - Corsair Gaming 700W 80+ Bronze

Sorry if I've left out any details, or if I've broken some kind of ettiquette. Thanks in advance for any possible help!

The zip contained no dump files to analyse, please have a look at the following tutorial and make sure your system is set to generate dump files then after your next bsod try uploading them again.
