dxgmms1.sys BSOD won't go away, please help me.

post #1 of 7

I am plagued with this specific BSOD. Reformatted about a month ago and haven't seen one, just got one again. I really can't take this anymore, it's absolutely ridiculous because I don't know WHAT THE HECK is causing it.

crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: [FONT=Segoe UI, Arial]dxgmms1.sys[/FONT] (dxgmms1+0xC071)

Bug check description: This bug check indicates that a system thread generated an exception that the error handler did not catch.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

It only happens when I'm gaming. I can browse the internet for DAYS, etc, it won't crash. To test this I ran a Prime95 Blend two nights ago and I woke up, it was still going strong after 11 hours. Temps aren't bad, CPU reaches close to 70c while gaming, GPU1 around 60c, GPU2 around 75c.

I don't know what to do, this is driving me absolutely insane. I don't believe it's my CPU overclock because...

1) It's a DirectX related BSOD.

2) I can pass hours of P95 Blend.

3) Only happens during gaming.

I was just playing Bad Company 2 with a friend, boom, sounds locks up, screen freezes, then goes to the BSOD screen.

Try updating to the latest version of DX. It can be downloaded from Microsofts website.

I already have the latest. I'm going to try 11.5, one can hope it's a driver issue.

Okay then, according to this old blog post, it could be multiple things.

Take a look here. There seems to be a hotfix for this from MS.

Yeah, I'm really hoping it's not bad hardware. I'm going to install 11.5, if the crashing persists I'll run a Memtest. If memtest passes then I guess I'll reset my CPU overclock to stock and see if it stops.

I really doubt it's my CPU overclock, though. I'm pumping so much voltage into it as it is...

Installed it, hope for the best now.

Even if I don't crash I'll run the Windows Memory diagnostic tool overnight to check for any errors, just to be on the safe side.
