BSOD and games crashing.

  Jameslayer 20:25 13 Nov 2010

Hi before I changed to to windows 7 from xp i was suffering from bsod which 9/10 times occured while playing games. I posted the info and was never able to track it to the cause. Tried all the things suggested updated drivers etc.

Well im still suffering from bsod on a much less regureler bases instead the game stops responding and windows sends a error report. Im guessing win7 is stopping the fault from getting to the bsod.

So I want to try again and find the issue so i can fix it. Im guessing its a hardware fault but im not sure how to acces error logs under windows 7 premium to post them here.

Thanks in advancwe for help

Event viewer in win 7

control panel/ performance information and tools/advanced tools/ view performance details in event log

it may be a hardware fault i dont know what games you are playing but i wouldnt rule out copy protection causing a conflict either

best of luck

Did you say it got better for a time? If yes, try the driver it worked better with. For a start, you can revert to the previous GPU driver in Device Manager by using the 'Roll Back Driver' option.

If that doesn't help, try the driver version prior to that till it gets better. If you need help locating previous drivers, tell us your GPU make & model.

Also, is this happening in more games than one? If yes, apart from Dragon Age, which other games are affected? G
