Battlefield games cause BSOD. Possible cause: GTX 960?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently facing a very annoying problem. I have always been able to play Battlefield games without any BSOD's with my HD7850, but ever since I have upgraded to GTX 960, I have been getting BSOD's every 10-30 minutes of playing. This applies for Battlefield: 1 BETA, Battlefield: 3 and Battlefield: 4. I have no idea what's wrong, but I suspect my card or PSU.

My Computer
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU: i5-3750k @ 3.40GHz
RAM: 8 GB DDR3
MOBO: ASUS P8Z77-V LX
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 (ASUS)

What I have tried
  • Upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10
  • Updated my drivers and everything to the newest
  • Updated my BIOS to the newest version
  • Ran MemTest86 for 19,5 hours without errors (Means RAM isn't the cause, right?)
  • Underclocked my GPU a little bit
  • Checked temps, all of them are low

I really don't know what's wrong. The BSOD's don't happen in other games such as TF2. I suspect my GPU, because it has only been happening with this GPU, but on the other hand my PSU might be giving up - since it is a more demanding GPU.

Those are pretty random BSODs:
caused by the following module: ndis.sys
caused by the following module: netr28ux.sys
caused by the following module: dxgmms2.sys
caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys
caused by the following module: volmgr.sys


What PSU are you using?
Have you tried unplugging and reseating all the PSU connections and components (drives, memory video, etc.)?

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried using another PCI-e port, and it seems to be working.

I have successfully ran Battlefield 3 for 1 hour without any BSOD's.

If it doesn't work, I will do what you have suggested.

This is for anyone coming from Google.

I hate when people find a solution to a problem and don't post it.

My solution was: Placed my graphics card in another slot (even though it is a slower one). My Battlefield nor any other games have crashed since.
