Windows 7: BSoD and other crashes while gaming.

BSoD and other crashes while gaming.

Hi there.

When playing games, anything from Hearthstone to Crysis, the sound and game begin to stutter in short bursts quite violently, until either BSoD or graphic breakage. It usually happens in the first few minutes.

After checking event viewer and seeing Kernal-Power 41 critical error, I tried everything on the list on this post Possible Causes for Kernel-Power Critical Errors and still crashing.

Thank you in advance.
