Windows 7: BSODs when playing games.

BSODs when playing games.

Alright heres the story. Built this new computer a few months back. Have had problems with it from the start unfortunately. I would go into a game and then it would crash pretty soon after. I narrowed this down to my memory. I ran memtest on each stick and found that one of them had errors. So I rma'ed that set back. The ram was set up using the manufacturers timings. But on this first set I wasn't able to be stable at 1600. It would only run at 1066 stable.

Since I was out my ram I went ahead and sent in my evga motherboard for the stepup since I was still within the 90 day window. So I get everything back and first thing I do is check the ram again. It passes of course. Another thing is I'm able to run the ram at 1600 stable. But now I'm still getting the BSOD's except its occuring after a greater period time then before. For instance everything seems normal in the game and then it starts slowing down almost like its lagging then I get a BSOD. If I don't start up a game I don't get the bluescreens. They have occured while trying to play WoW, Dirt 2, and GTA IV. The video card is running the latest version of ati drivers. I used driver sweeper prior to installing them. Included are my recent minidumps.

I'm starting to think it could be my videocard maybe.

Specs are
EVGA X58 SLI Classified
Intel® Core™ i7-975 processor Extreme Edition
12GB OCZ DDR3 PC3-12800 1600mhz Gold XTC Triple Channel
ATI Radeon HD5850
1000 WATT ANTEC Truepower Quattro
Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Hi and welcome
Well brake out the memtestx86. these were also caused by memory corruption.

I would also run a system file check
type cmd in search>right clcik and run as admin>sfc /scannow

Good luck

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm running the sfc /scannow right now. On the memtest would you reccomend running it individually on each stick or as a whole?

Mike it is such a PITA to do it one stick at a time I might do a couple of runs with them all in. if it passes then your can start doing it a stick at a time

Yeah thats why I was asking. Was quite annoying when I got the set back from OCZ. Not something I want to do if I don't have to. I'll post back after the scan finishes and after I do some runs in memtest. Thanks again.
