Windows 7: BSOD in games after last Nvidia update

22 Dec 2015   #51

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

None. All those games worked before fine.
Evil within, Zombie army trilogy, Lost planet 2, Metal Gear Solid 5. I have 50+h in MGS and didnt have single crash before.

Also strange thing. I play game get to checkpoint, game auto saves, i continue playing, get crash (no matter which freeze or stopped working). I restart game and my auto save is gone.
To not lose auto save i have to exit game manually. I dont understand how that is possible.
Lets take zombie army for example: i play level collect bottles & gold. Get crash. restart game and my save is gone and i dont have collectibles. Then i play again collect stuffs and exit game manually. I restart game and continue from save. If game crashes i lose all progress to that manual exit auto save.

Which is really annoying because i have to exit at every checkpoint / save point. And same game crashes every time at different point.

Games that worked fine without crashes before.

Please remove Gigabyte software, it is known for causing bluescreens.

The zip is empty of dump files.
Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

Shit... yeah i installed ccleaner to clean registry. and seems it deleted dumps. crap lol

Also i think i have already removed gigabyte software

Also i can see dumps on pc. It was usbuhci.sys that caused BSOD this time.

Don't forget memory corruption can be GFX ram or HDD pagefile as well as actual RAM.
Have you checked your temps while playing ? in particular gfx temps to see if they are going to high
You could try furmark to stress your card while monitoring temperatures

Run 3dmark highest gpu temp was 64c

Processor had been overclocked since 2008 when i first installed windows 7. And when i was choosing how much i overclock it i did cpu stress tests so if id wanted i could overclock it about 200mhz more and it still shouldnt cause any problems to my system. Since then i have reinstalled windows 7 once in 2013 when i upgraded to ssd. And about year ago i upgraded cooler to "Antec kuhler H2O 650". And i didnt have any issues with overclocked cpu. So im 99.999999% sure that cpu has nothing to do with bsods.


Also i dont think that temperatures are cause of bsod's because sometimes i can play 1h without any crashes. Then another time i crash every 5min. And i have turned everything off except game itself and that seems to have no effect.

Also i remebered one thing. When i started to have problems. I had overclocked gpu since day 1 when i brought it long time ago. And when i got that error while updating gpu it was overclocked. And that error messed my overclocking software.
I didnt notice it at first until i was advised to uninstall that software. Then i saw that all mhz values were random.

Since then i uninstalled it, but maybe it messed something in gpu itself?
