BSOD F4 & 7A while playing League of Legends or idling

Hello there and thanks in advance for your help! :)

So I've got BSOD F4 and recently 7A (cf enclosed files) repeatedly after roughtly 40 mins whatever I do, playing a game or just idling (I've got a BSOD while trying to write this message).

I got this after being on a streaming website, I was thinking of a malware or virus but I MBAM doesn't finds anything and Avast neither (my comp does go to BSOD before the advanced scan finishes though).

I have searched on this forum before asking for help, here is what I did (with no change):

  • format c: (where OS is)
  • Unplugged/replugged my SSD (on a new slot and new SATA cable)
  • Removed my RAM, cleaned all sticks, and done a Memtest (10 passes, this took easily 24h xD) with no error detection
  • Made a Cristal Disk test with no errors

Do you have any ideas or need any more info?

Thanks a million for your review!

EDIT : I just forgot to describe what happens before the blue screen : whatever I do, the computer freezes (I can move my cursor but no clics are detected)

Hello!

Just to say I'm struggling to achieve the Long generic test since the computer is giving me F4 BSOD while processing, short drive self and short generic are ok though.

I'll keep you tuned!

Thanks again for your help!

Brilliant idea!
I managed to achieve the following tests without errors (cf picts below) :
  • short drive self test
  • short generic
  • long generic
  • checkdisk on both drives (ssd and hdd)
I'm still bumping on a BSOD (F4) when trying to use HD tune full scan; I didn't found any DOS version unless my search was wrong?


Thanks a lot for your help!

Heya!

Sorry about taking time, this isn't easy to achieve those scans; I tried in safe mode with no changes.

Sooo here are the results :
  • Malware bytes : nothing found
  • Avast : can't manage to end the scan
  • ADW cleaner : nope
  • Kapersky TTDSKiller (that was a bit tricky to install btw): Found nothing
  • Eset Online Scanner : he found some stiff but doesn't seems to uninstall them, in fact I can't go thought the whole process and pressing stop while scanning doesn't allow me to erase the found files.
  • SuperAntiSpyware : found some like 9000++ unwanted cookies and erased them
I have to add that after having done all those tests and erasing work, I still stumbled upon the sames BSODs.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lots!

Hello again!

I'm unfortunately back to say that I'm still experiencing crashes, this is now getting longer to get a crash.

Crashes are coming 2 ways (at around 40/60 mins of using computer):
  • my computer freezes while showing black screen
  • I'm getting a F4 BSOD

Just before crashing my skype is showing the error message shown in pict below.

Does this help?
