BSOD/Freeze/GPU Driver crash when playing games

Q: BSOD/Freeze/GPU Driver crash when playing games

Just got a new PC and I'm experiencing BSODs while playing games (generally high end games). Sometimes there is no BSOD and the game just crashes, or the GPU driver stops responding and recovers.
I tried everything I thought of, that is clean install of GPU drivers, updated all other drivers and even a Windows format, but the problem still persists. Attached please find the latest dump files and a DxDiag system specs file.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: BSOD/Freeze/GPU Driver crash when playing games

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can you return the PC to who you bought it from to be fixed? A Windows Defender file is being flagged as a problem. Are you running another 3rd party antivirus program?

Hi. I've recently been trying to play Metal Gear Solid 5 but every time I boot it up my PC either crashes as soon as the splash screens are done or after a few minutes. It's been crashing while playing other games as well but it's been much rarer. It's not a BSOD crash and it doesn't produce any crash dumps so I'm leaning towards it being a problem with either the PSU, the motherboard or one of the graphics cards. Any help with finding the cause of this would be appreciated.
 
The PSU model is fd-psu-newt2-800, the graphics cards are both Nvidia GTX760s and the motherboard is a ASUS Sabertooth Z77

I started getting this today for some reason. My setup had been the same for the last 6 months or so and out of nowhere while playing a game I had installed for a month I instantly got a BSOD. I tried updating my gfx drivers but didn't really help much at all.

I also get some random errors when trying to load them up now after a few BSODs (i.e. explorer.exe stops working then restarts, desktop manager error etc.)

My specs:
Win7 x64
Gigabyte MA770
Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti
Phenom II x4 940

A:Freeze while playing games, no BSOD.

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

If not experiencing BSOD's, please also upload this report:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

First off, a disclaimer - I am not familiar w/8.1 so my analysis is based on Win8 RTM
8.1 is (as I understand it) a Developer's Release - so it can be expected to have bugs.
In the end, the only sure thing will be to revert to Win8 RTM and wait for the RTM version of 8.1

Ensure that you have ALL Windows Updates. This is very important!

You have 4 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

The symptoms sound like a video problem - and there are video errors in the WER section of MSINFO32.
Please follow these suggestions for troubleshooting the video errors (even though you haven't seen BSOD's): Video TDR Timeout - 0x116 + 0x117 - Sysnative Forums

Hello So I began having issues with my PC freezing up or giving me the BSOD while playing games Half of the time my picture will distort and freeze When this happens the whole computer is unresponsive then ends up requiring a reset The other half I will receive the BSOD When this began I used HWMonitor to try and narrow down the issue and notice my CPU temp would spike up to c during heavy load Screen Freeze games. Sometimes BSOD while playing So I cleaned my case out put new thermal paste on and brought a new heatsink This got my temp down a lot to about c during gaming and c while idle Although I made this change I still had random freezes and BSOD I also ran Memtest to make BSOD Sometimes Screen Freeze while playing games. sure my memory was ok and everything came back clear Last but not least I upgraded the firmware on my SSD Unfortunately I'm still not having any luck I don't have an extra GPU or PSU to narrow it down anymore but would hoping maybe you guys might see something that BSOD Sometimes Screen Freeze while playing games. could be at fault before I buy any replacement parts So far that where I'm currently at Thanks guys BSOD Sometimes Screen Freeze while playing games.

A:PC Freeze while playing games (league of legends) No BSOD

If you are running AMD graphics drivers this is your answer. League of Legends is one of the games in an extensive listing of games that AMD asks if you're running when graphics drivers crashes. I don't play those types of games...but I just got a new computer 4 months ago which runs AMD HD radeon 8400 graphics. After a couple automatic driver updates to the current version 13.12 I began having random driver crashes while streaming online tv. I began exploring the internet & there's loads of information documenting this problem which is a pandemic that plagues AMD Radeon graphics in all chipset series from the 5200-7975...To date there is no fix...AMD (if that's the graphics card in your system) has a reporting form on their website for you to log the crash report...they ask for all system specs be submitted. I think they're compiling data so that a fix (or patch) can be designed....until then, the freezes [what my computer does...locks up, everything freezes & once I got black screen] will continue to happen. I guess you just sort of have to put up with it or get the graphics card replaced with some other architecture (branding). I did find info. with a few complaints about intels i3 graphics also having glitches. I'm sort of regretting having gone with the AMD, I knew nothing of this in my purchase decision. There was nothing to indicate there was an extensive flaw in the update for the drivers. I wish I could "roll back" the driver but don't find that option in these new systems [unlike in Windows XP]. I even went through my warranty tech support who did a reinstall of the drivers for me but it didn't rectify the problem...& the AMD website is useless because their DIY tech support refers to reinstalling the graphics drivers but the version on their website are the ones causing the problem.

Recently my computer has begun to crash in the middle of games (Counter strike and League of Legends). The crash happens abruptly while playing, the screen tears the image completely where nothing on the screen is now identifiable, just shreds of the image/colors/pixels. The PC then stops all tasks and continues to run with the frozen image on the screen with no sound or anything running. I have to hard reset and hold the power button. The computer runs fine right after, a slow boot up at most. I know my CMOS battery is dying due to the clock on my computer losing time. Is could that be a problem linked to this?

I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

Those need to be updated before we can do any underlying investigation.

Issues started not long ago when I purchased a new gtx 750 ti graphics card. Get varied Bsod error messages such as video_tdr_failure nvlddmkm.sys, and DPC_Watchdog_violation as well as one or two others. These issues present themselves upon starting of certain games. Specifically first person shooters but is rarely a problem for my most played game League of Legends. Very easily replicate-able as it happens everytime i start said games. Starts out as odd stretched lines and screen disturbances (spasm like textures and light shafts in game) and then black screen with sound followed by either display kernel crash message of my video driver or complete computer shutdown.

Also included below is a DxDiag system info save file.

Any help guys ? Does all these crashes have something to do with my motherboard ? Should I change it (the only thing I didn't change is the MB & the power supply).

The above are related to Microsoft Security Essentials. It looks like it was not properly uninstalled when you removed it and replaced it with avast!. I had a similar problem with another antivirus program that I resolved with Hardware devices are not working or are not detected in Windows.
No .dmp files included in your crash reports. If you ran CCleaner after the most recent crash, that would explain the missing .dmps. Please refrain from using file cleaning programs, such as CCleaner, for the duration of your troubleshooting.
Your BugCheck does indeed indicate a driver issue. Until you have .dmps for us, we cannot determine which driver.

I've been getting some BSOD's playing Warframe intermittently, and today got one playing Trove.
Tried doing sfc scan, memory diagnostics and checkdisk and updating outdated drivers with some exceptions I was unsafe about messing with (DriverEasy said processor drivers were heavily outdated, and suggested intel xeon drivers).
Also tried Verifier.exe, resulting in bluescreens as soon as I got to the desktop, mentioning something about I/O problems.

DM Logs are attached

Hope you can help with this.

Hello everyone I just got back to my PC after a my first year of college and when I first minutes after games, update crash ten after driver BSOD starting now started it up it bluescreened I didn't manage to catch the error before it rebooted then changed to a black screen said that there was BSOD ten minutes after starting games, now crash after driver update no hard disk to boot with So I turned it off turned it back on and it booted just fine I ran a full system scan with Avast to check for malware updated some games on Steam and basically did my best to get my computer up to speed since it had been off for so long while I did use it during long breaks While the Avast scan was running I played World of Warcraft for about an hour or two and bam--another bluescreen The error message said something along the lines of quot Display drivers failed to restart quot but again I couldn't catch the rest because it rebooted coming up with the same black screen as before So I turned it off When I booted it up for a third time Avast opened almost immediately and asked to restart my computer and run a scan of the startup files So I obliged it seemed like it scanned my whole system again which lasted for an hour or two and it seems like it moved Malwaregen and corrupted files to the chest When it was done my computer booted normally I installed some Windows updates and a new Nvidia driver figuring that something was outdated and once again started playing World of Warcraft This time it didn't bluescreen instead the screen froze after ten minutes and turned a solid color My PC rebooted almost immediately again with the same black screen So I rebooted for a fourth time just fine like before and ran a disk check to find errors in my hard drive None were found so I don't think it's a hardware problem Seems like a graphics driver issue but I'm not sure of that and even if I were I wouldn't know how to fix it I changed some dmp files settings and replicated the error with Team Fortress so now I have a dmp file and the typical package in the attachments The first attachment is the DM Log Collector file and the second is the dmp file Thanks in advance folks

A:BSOD ten minutes after starting games, now crash after driver update

Try any other driver version and see how it goes. Uninstall the installed display driver using Display Driver Uninstaller. Then install the NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL

When done, stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Also, Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Hello,



I'm having an issue when I browse on the internet watching videos and litsening to music or connecting to a game I will have a sudden BSOD




Thank you

A:BSOD while playing games/downloading, Driver IRQL Not Less Or Equal

Hi zech.

Update the driver to Killer e2200 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller from Driver Downloads | Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.

And Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

The title is pretty self-explanatory; I keep getting BSOD on steam games, particularly DotA and Civ V. I've been supremely bored without my vidjya, so any help would be much appreciated!

A:BSOD playing Steam games, Bug 0x00000124, Driver: hal.dll+12a3b

Hello, and welcome to SevenForums!

First of all, have you overclocked your graphics card at all?

The 0x00000124 error code appears during a hardware complaint, such as overheating. If you have overclocked your GPU, RESET IT IMMEDIATELY. This could be causing numerous critical errors in your GPU, causing the whole system to crash. Also, overclocking can severely damage your GPU. I would only recommend it if you know what you are doing and are not just following a tutorial.

But, this could be other things too. I see that your GPU driver is WAY out-of-date. Download the latest drivers via the AMD website.

Best of luck,

PeregrineX

The crashes implicate your graphics card, its drivers, or your RAM.

Re-install or install the latest drivers for your display card. Your current drivers may be corrupted and/or outdated. Use the following method to re-install the drivers.
Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Uninstall a program
For NVIDIA:Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
Restart your computer
Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel
If any remain of the above, uninstall one at a time
If asked to restart after uninstalling any of the above, do so, and continue uninstalling any remaining NVIDIA items until all are removed

For AMD:Uninstall AMD Catalyst Install Manager if it is listed (this should remove all AMD graphics software and drivers)
If AMD Catalyst Install Manager is not listed, use the following method to uninstall the graphics drivers:Click Start Menu
Right Click My Computer/Computer
Click Manage
Click Device Manager from the list on the left
Expand Display adapters
Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)Right click the adapter
Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK

Alternatively:Login as an adminstrative user
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Hardware and Sound
Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
Expand Display adapters
Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)Right click the adapter
Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK

Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts



Run some hardware checks.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they ta... Read more

I've been having an issue the past couple months in which I will be playing a game for around 5-10 minutes and then the screen goes black. After this, one of the following occurs:The screen returns, with the game being played not responding (Happens with less intensive games like Minecraft), a message saying the AMD display driver has recovered is displayed in the bottom right corner
The screen remains black until I ctrl + alt + del and force close the application (Steam games such as CS:GO)
The screen flashes between the game, and a black screen, usually consisting of audio loops, and then eventually freezes into a BSOD with the following message: Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed

I've tried updating my video drivers, monitoring my temperatures, and stress testing, but I can't find a solution.

That is your Nvidia graphics card driver which is almost a year old. but the real troubling part of it is,

VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.
TDR is a time delay and recovery failure. Tell me if I am correct. You have Nvidia Optimus technology. Optimus allows you to use the on chip graphics, which is much less power demanding when the dedicated graphics card is not needed and switches to the Dedicated Card when additional graphics power is needed. AMD has the same thing, which is a good idea. The problem is the implementation of the technology, in other words, how they both make it work. If that is the case, most likely, sending it back, will not work. This is a common problem and I have never seen it solved but by one way, which is not always well received. What is happening in all cases is the laptop is trying to switch either to or from one to the other. The problem is the implementation of all manufacturers, is different, but have 1 thing in common. The switch takes longer than Windows allows, so Windows assumes that there is a graphics failure and the CPU throws an error. Now, before you blame Windows, remember Windows was out long before this technology and Windows limits were well known. In fact, Windows 7 is more forgiving in that area than any Operating System before it. That is probably what is happening. If you don't have Optimus Technology, then your driver is crashing and is not recovering within the allotted time. If you have had the card replaced before, there is some other problem going on. Tell me which it is, do you have Optimus or switchable graphics?

I get a screen freeze and audio loop when using the net or playing games that used to run fine. Sometimes i can be on a web page for 2 minutes, other times 20. Same same with games like COD MW2. The only thing i can do is hold down the power button to shut down nothing else works.

Also sometimes i get a black screen where the display turns off just before it freezes.
No BSOD so no dump

Seems like sometimes the notebook freezes without any good reason. I need to reboot it completely and start again.

Anyone knows how I could get any further information about this crash? I am not sure why it happens, but I noticed that sometimes that happened after hibernating.

Did you try a different Operating system ? or try different nvidia drivers there is a lot of different drivers . Try Xp works great! or updates for your current Op ,Bios update may be in order as well.

A:Games freeze/crash after 10 mins or less

Sounds like u have some type of clocking issue or temp problem...

First use CPUz, check out all setings,
then use HW monitor, to check CPU temp, and MOBO temps, and voltages.
3.) use GPUz to check out your video card settings...
4.) run a MEM test in dos, to see if u have any falty ram...
5.) check all bios settings... something could be configured wrong.

well, thats all i'v got... hope this helps

A:Solved: All games freeze or crash

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Looking at your DXDiag I see the PC is a Dell, can you give us the Dell Service Tag number of the machine we we can look up the exact system specs.

Is the PC fully standard or have you changed or upgraded any hardware since you got it?

Can you download and install HWMonitor (its free). Run the program and screenshot it with your PC just sat at the desktop. If you can run any games, leave HWMonitor running and run a game for a couple of minutes then exit and screenshot HWMonitor again, post the two screenshots in a reply here.

Hi all, I am new here so sorry if this topic already exists. Anyway, here is my problem. Two days ago, whenever I play a game, watch youtube or watch movies, after about an hour of such an activity, my computer freezes for about a second, screen gets blurred with colors (actually, whatever is on screen at the moment of freezing is what gets murky), sound stops and then the computer restarts. It started after I installed web cam (hp pro web cam), though I am almost certain it is not because of it. I tried to update graphic driver and I have also uninstalled it and then reinstalled the latest ones, didn't help.
My configuration: Pentium 4 3ghz, 2gb ram, ATI 3650 hd, Maxtor x 2 (80 and 160), Chieftec 370w. Thanks in advance

A:Freeze and crash when playing video content

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP


We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.


You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

Quote:




* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.





To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Quote:




* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello,

Seems the dump files are not in there. Go to this folder: C:\Windows\Minidump, check if there are any files in there.

If not, follow this Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD to make sure it is configured properly.

Other than that.

A:GAMES freeze/crash PC to Black Screen

I would suggest some hardware checks.


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.
Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

This is getting really frustrating... I can be sim racing or whatnot and the game freezes on the screen yet keeps playing in the background. The game continues to work but the screen is stuck.

My video card then resets itself (changes resolution, refresh rate, or colour quality). GPU temp is 78C, card is a Radeon 9800XT.

Why does it keep doing this?

Seems like this is a windows file and the reasons could be as wide as corrupt registry entry to a corrupt windows installation.
 
Usually to check for windows errors, click on start then open CMD with admin rights
Type scannow /f
See if any error pop up
 
Since its a new laptop, you can try to Reset the PC to factory settings and install softwares carefully. Its possible the some software corrupted this file.
To Reset the PC (Note - This will delete all personal data) -

Hey, im having the most annoying problems. Fresh install for windows 7 ultimate x64, never experienced problems like this before. So whats happening, first off when i went to install windows 7 it took 6 times to get an install without problems. Secondly now that ive got a good install, im experiencing numerous problems. I've had 3 bsod's and a few times a day im experiencing crashes like i haven't seen before. The whole computer freezes. i cant even turn num lock on my keyboard and worst of all i cant even click the restart button i actually have to turn it off at the mains. i normally experience this when playing a game, but non of my components are overheating, i think it could be my hard drive as i had the problems installing software on previous windows installation.

Any idea's how to fix this?

A:System will crash when playing games

Let's first see if theirs any hardcore errors in event viewer. In order to get into event viewer click on start, control panel, admin tools, event viewer. Take a look into applications and sytem and see if their are any errors around the same time as the game crashed. This may give you a lead as to what failed when the game crashed.

Also does this happen on just one game or is it all games? It could just be a simple game patch

If you need more assistance just post back!
Good luck

hello everyone,

im getting an issue when im playing games. or any games the computer completely crash or sometimes freeze i get white screen so what to do ?

A:windows 8 crash when playing games

Lower resolution and/or graphics quality? Perhaps they are set too high for you system. I've had no issues gaming on W8 at all. Go to canirunit.com and see what it says.

Also, do you have any mods installed for that game? If so, you will have to disable/enable one at a time to determine which mod is causing the crash (at least from my experience with Skyrim)

A while back, I upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 64bit.

Sense then my computer has crashed constantly while playing games. I can keep it on for hours working on Zbrush, 3ds max or photo shop, but with games I keep crashing. Sometimes its quick and vicious.Other times is slow and cruel. Letting me enjoy my favourite games for about four hours before dying before my very eyes.

I tried reformatting the computer, this did not work. I tried sending it in on service, they found nothing wrong with the hardware.

It is getting really annoying, not to mention depressing. if anyone here knows what I can do to solve this, I'd be very grateful.
 

A:Computer crash while playing games.

Right ckick on the geme icon, choose poprerties,,compabiliy.

Disble visiul themes and disable desktop composition. When yoiu enter the game. they shut down and return to normal when you close the game. Worth trying. sorted an few issues for me.

This should be a stickie. I type it often enough.

I recently upgraded my PC by buying a new CPU AMD 5200+ 2.70Ghz overclocked to 3.0Ghz and all games started crashing.Here's my PC's specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte-GA69VM-S2
CPU: AMD 5200+ 2.70Ghz currently 3.00Ghz
Video Card: Galaxy GTS250 512MB GDDR3
RAM: 3x1GB Super Talent
HDD: Seagate 500GB
PSU: Fortron 400W
2xDVD-RWs
OS: Windows 7 x86

For example when I start GTA IV the PSU starts making a loud noise and after 15 min the game freezes.Not only GTA IV but Crysis,Metro 2033,Need for Speed Shift...

All temperatures are normal except the motherboard. It was stable until I bought the new CPU. The old one was AMD 4000+ 2.1Ghz
CPU:30 to 40 degrees on standby when playing maximum 60
Video Card:45 degrees on standby and up to 65 while playing
Motherboard: 45 degrees on standby and up to 67 when playing
All help would be appreciated
 

A:Most games crash while playing. Could this be a PSU problem?

Yes it sounds like a problem. The next thing you're going to hear is probably a "pop," if you're unlucky. Upgrade to a quality 450 watt psu or higher, asap.

Ok here s the story I am a gamer I play some games on my computer Not a ton but a few And most of the time the games work great no story needed here However I ve noticed an odd crash that happens when I play more intense games ones that I have downloaded The games that the crash happens when I play are Mine craft Guild Wars and crash Why when games? does my computer playing Edge Of Space a beta game The only thing I can find in common with these Why does my computer crash when playing games? games is I bought them all They all had to be downloaded The all have large over worlds That s honestly it Now let me tell you what the crash itself does First the computer screen goes ALL black The monitor is still on Why does my computer crash when playing games? but the monitor light says it s sleeping and nothing I can do can wake it back up Also usually if there was any sound playing when the crash happened the sound that had just played in the last few seconds will repeat on a short loop for about - seconds before the sound stops with a dull whine No keys do anything moving the mouse does nothing turning the monitor on and off does nothing The only thing that will fix this Is holding down the power button and turning it back on or just unplugging the computer itself I highly doubt this is a virus as the games are all coming from pretty trustworthy websites and I have a Why does my computer crash when playing games? safe computer Also this crash only happens when I play these games Also something that might be very important Rune scape DOES NOT crash or if it does it happens very rarely since I don t ever remember it crashing I had to download it and it has a big over world also but the graphics are unimpressive and it was free However the graphics for mine craft and edge of space are also unimpressive and they still have the crash I ve looked around and I think it might be a overheating problem I don t think it s problem with the cards because the games DO load and work fine until the crash Also something worth noting I m not using the monitor that came with my computer It s a older model then the one that came with my computer since that one broke Is that part of it Does anyone know what s going on Can I PLEASE get some specific help nbsp

A:Why does my computer crash when playing games?

Hi and Welcome to TSG!

First of all, you have not told us what computer you have. This makes it very hard to provide any level of help for your situation. Please run the TSG System Information Utility and post the results back here in a reply. If your computer is a prebuilt system from a company such as Dell, HP etc please also provide us with the make and model #. If it is a Dell computer please also provide the service tag which will be located on a sticker on your computer. If you have made any changes to a prebuilt system please also list them (eg additional graphics card: added a GeForce 650 ti). For your situation we also need to know what PSU you have, please post the make, model # and wattage.

One possibility is that your computer is overheating as you suspected. There are a number of monitoring programs which will give you the temperature of various components in your computer. However, these can be unreliable. Unless its a program designed for your computer.

Another possibility is that you are overloading your computer and your power supply is insufficient. Please provide the voltages across the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails. These can either be found in your BIOS or from monitoring software as mentioned above.

Generic Monitoring programs include SpeedFan, HWMonitor Pro, Pc-Wizard, Open Hardware Monitor, Real Temp and Core Temp.

As generic programs I recommend you use both SpeedFan and HWMonitor Pro. Attach screen shots of both programs to a reply. Attach two screen shots from each, one just after turning on your system from a cold boot and the other from after you have put a bit of load on your system. IF you have a game which allows you to access your desktop whilst its running, this would be the best way to apply load to your system.

Please reply including EVERYTHING asked for in this post. That includes the TSG system info results, your computer make and model if it has one along with a service tag if its Dell, your PSU make, model and wattage, if a prebuilt system list any changes you made to it since you bought it and finally the 4 screen shots asked for.

Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

A:Blue Screen Crash from playing Video Games

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.
5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "false positive" 0x124 events where the hardware wasn't complaining but Windows thought otherwise (because of the bug).
At the time of writing, Windows 7 is not known to suffer from any such defects, but it is nevertheless important to always keep Windows itself updated.

6) Attempt to (stress) test those hardware components which can be put through their paces artificially.
The most obvious examples are the RAM and HDD(s).
For the RAM, use the in-built memory diagnostics (run MDSCHED) or the 3rd-party memtest86 utility to run many hours worth of testing.
For hard drives, check whether CHKDSK /R finds any problems on the drive(s), notably "bad sectors".
Unreliable RAM, in particular, is deadly as far as software is concerned, and anything other than a 100% clear memory test result is cause for concern. Unfortunately, even a 100% clear result from the diagnostics utilities does not guarantee that the RAM is free from defects - only that none were encountered during the test passes.

7) As the last of the non-invasive troubleshooting steps, perform a "vanilla" reinstallation of Windows: just the OS itself without any additional applications, games, utilities, updates, or new drivers - NOTHING AT ALL that is not sourced from the Windows 7 disc.
Should that fail to mitigate the 0x124 problem, jump to the next steps.
If you run the "vanilla" installation long enough to convince yourself that not a single 0x124 crash has occurred, start installing updates and applications slowly, always pausing between successive additions long enough to get a feel for whether the machine is still free from 0x124 crashes.
Should the crashing resume, obviously the very last software addition(s) may be somehow linked to the root cause.
If stop 0x124 errors persist despite the steps above, and the harware is under warranty, consider returning it and requesting a replacement which does not suffer periodic MCE events.
Be aware that attempting the subsequent harware troubleshooting steps may, in some cases, void your warranty:

8) Clean and carefully remove any dust from the inside of the machine.
Reseat all connectors and memory modules.
Use a can of compressed air to clean out the RAM DIMM sockets as much as possible.

9) If all else fails, start removing items of hardware one-by-one in the hope... Read more

I had a desktop that was just sitting for about 2 years without use and just hooked it up to my TV to make a media center. I immediately installed Windows 7 and had a fresh slate so old software problems shouldn't be an issue. All drivers are up to date.

The problem is that whenever a game is played, it will randomly create a black screen with buzzing sound. Some games is completely random, other games crash at about the same point. Sometimes the video signal cuts out to the TV, sometimes it just stays black. Either way it needs to be manually turned off. I have checked GPU temperatures and they are about 80C under load. I have ran memtest86 and no errors on the RAM. I just don't know what else it could be.

The specs are:

Intel Core 2 3000MHz
2x2GB Corsair DDR2-400
ATI 4850
OCZ 500W Power Supply
