BSOD During gaming - Possibly GFX card related? PLEASE HELP!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Firstly, sorry if this is in the wrong place.

I've recently re-installed Win 7 on my desktop PC and all was well as far as I could tell until recently. I started getting random BSOD when playing games about a week ago (maybe less). the first one was about an hour into BFBC2 MP, the second was today about half an hour into Oblivion, and then again right after less than 10 minutes into Oblivion (this time I was running the game in windowed mode), and the last so far was about 5-10 minutes into Dead Island.

So anyway, the screen would go black and the sound would get stuck in a loop for awhile and the PC would restart. Sometimes the fans on the gfx cards will also immediately set themselves at 100% when this happens. It never actually goes to the blue screen but when windows reboots there is a window that says "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" with the following information:
Error information (Click to show)
Problem signature:

Because of the odd gfx card behavior and the fact this only occurs when running games (so far that I've seen) I believe it's a gfx driver or hardware issue. I have tried a clean install of the drivers already though but to no avail. I've looked up how to analyse the minidump files but am unable to download the windows debug software to to so due to network quota limits.

Here is the minidump file if anyone if kind enough to take a look and let me know what the problem is. PC specs should be in sig.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

*EDIT*
Forgot to mention that before I loaded up Dead Island (which caused BSOD) I reset the OC on my CPU. So OC doesn't seem to be an issue.

First thing, is your CPU overclocked? If so, try returning it to stock and seeing if the problem persists. The next step would probably be trying older drivers and seeing if that changes anything. From there it starts to get more complicated.

Thanks for the prompt reply smile.gif

Edited my original post, forgot to mention I already tried stock clocks. I'll try a fresh install of the oldest drivers I have (301.xx), I can't download anything older due to my REALLY low internet quota limit this month. Current drivers are version 306.23.

Is the only thing that changed since the BSODs started happening your re-install of Windows 7? If so, what is different from the re-install versus your previous install that would be causing the BSOD? This is likely a software, not a hardware issue.

Unfortunately, this isn't easy to diagnose.

Well, my last install of windows 7 was extremely messed up, it got to the point in which it wouldn't load all the services. The only thing I can see this time around that would have any effect would be the windows updates. I hardly ever update my computers, but with this fresh install I let it to update as much as it could without going over my download quota (which I did anyway -.-). Since not all the updates have been downloaded yet, there could be a compatibility issue between the new files and old dependents.

After doing a good clean out of vid drivers and a fresh install of 301.42 and played Dead Island for about 10 minutes and there were no problems. When I get a bit of free time I'll do some more messing around in games and 3D apps and see if it crashes again.

I remember when I first cleaned the vid drivers to reinstall 306.23, windows wasn't recognizing them as being installed and I had a hell of a time trying to clean it all out (Driver Sweeper and CCleaner were not working on anything to do with nvidia). This time around though everything went smoothly. Could have just been a really bad original driver install that wasn't properly cleaned. I also noticed, then and now, that when I install the drivers they say that nvidia PhysX was already installed, but Driver Sweeper said it had removed everything. Strange.

PC just crashed after about 5-10 minutes of starting the visualizations in Winamp. It was only playing music and the visualizations. Screen lost signal and went on standby and the sound got stuck in a loop, and the PC sat there not doing anything, I had to press the reset button. I didnt get an error msg when it rebooted and no minidump was created. What the hell...

Just ran sfc /scannow it completed with errors but couldn't fix them... I don't know what to do.

This is above my head. Keep me posted on what you discover. I hope it ends up being something simple.

Alright thanks mate, you and me both.

Here is the CBS.log file generated by sfc /scannow if anyone wants to take a look. I can see a few lines that say something failed to load but I have no idea what the hell it's on about.
CBS.zip 110k .zip file

I'm going to go ahead and finish the updates for win7, hopefully this will do something... This is going to use up the rest of the monthly quota... My family is going to kill me xD

Alright I finished updating windows and also (accidentally) updated the nvidia drivers too, and I have yet to experience any crashes (touch wood). So hopefully this was just a driver conflicting and is all sorted out now. smile.gif
