BSOD when running games

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Always crashes at random times when playing Skyrim or any game on medium / high settings. Doesn't always crash 100% when playing though. Started happening about 3 months ago, and hasn't really stopped since.

intel i7-2600
AMD Radeon HD 5700

Dell XPS 8300 2929k .zip file

If you have things set up correctly the PC will stall and sit on that blue screen. Write down the error codes and google them. That is all that anyone else can tell you to do. FIgure out what the error code/codes mean and then try posting that information. I'm almost 100% certain its either ram/cpu/gpu related if its hardware or video card drivers if its a software issue.

I should also note it says you have no antivirus program in the log you posted. Which honestly in this day and age is just dumb.

I'm not sure what you exactly mean by having things set up correctly. But when the blue screen happens, it sits for a second then reboots. I also have malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials running, so I don't know why it didn't record that in the log.

set your bios to halt on error then you will be able to see the screen for more than a second. Also this line should be a big flag for you

Missing Events in Event Log
Details: Investigate why 64% (30,999) events were lost during data collection. The settings for Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) maximum buffers and buffer size may not be optimal depending on which data sets are being collected.

Would you mind explaining how I'd go about doing that? Sorry, I'm still a bit of a novice when it comes to these things.
