Windows 7: BSODs after playing games for some time

BSODs after playing games for some time

I am posting for a friend of mine because he has difficulties with expressing himself in english, I hope that is alright for you.

So he got computer which seems to be running fine, until he starts playing video games. After about 30 to 60 minutes (sometimes more) the computer will crash. We tried updating the drivers, and ran memtest86 as well as the windows tool to test the ram, which yielded no results. We thought the graphics card may be getting too hot, but gpu-z shows only around 50 degree, even while running games. Currently we don't know how to determine the cause of the problem, so I was hoping you might be able to help.

We now noticed that crashes only seem to happen with more demanding/newer games. The computer didnt crash for several hours while running Age of Mythology or Telltales The Walking Dead, but could handle only 10 minutes of Civilization Beyond Earth and also crashes when running the newest Anno game.

Please uninstall Daemon tools, it is known for causing bluescreens due to some poorly coded drivers.

Please disconnect the USB network adapter while troubleshooting and do not forget to update the drivers when connecting the USB network adapter again.
USB network adapters are quite often causing network related problems, it is highly recommended to keep the drivers up to date or not use them at all.

In case you ran MemTest86, please run MemTest86+

BSODs after playing games for some time Diagnostic Test BSODs after playing games for some time

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.
