Getting a black screen when playing games.

Q: Getting a black screen when playing games.

So im not quite sure if this is the right forum to ask this question if it's not please just ignore this thread Im just too desperate to not at least try and get help from here So my problem is this Whenever playing black a Getting screen games. when i play a game like Far cry Crysis Call of Juarez Demigod my computer screen turns black somewhere between and minutes into the game sometimes its a Getting a black screen when playing games. random colour instead of black though not so often The strange thing is that i used to be able to play these games with the graphics turned up to maximum quality but the last couple of months i've been getting this black screen which requires me to restart the computer in order to get any control over my pc again Other games like Football manager fifa manager Hearts of iron Company of Heroes all of them and Sins of a solar empire never get that error and im able to play those games with graphics at maximum for as long as i want to without getting this problem im thinking it must be related to games that have steep graphic requirements I've tried reinstalling my Vista reinstalling all of my drivers getting different drivers for everything possible but so far i've had no luck whatsoever I hadn't installed anything new on my computer for about - months before i started getting this error so it can't be because of any new things like broker drivers and so on As i said im desperate since im currently at home with a broken hip with nothing else to do than play games And frankly im getting a bit tired of management games im itching for a FPS I hope one or more of you will have some helpfull advice im willing to try anything you suggest Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Getting a black screen 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.)

A: Getting a black screen when playing games.

I forgot to say that if i just leave my computer turned on it will start restarting by itself after about 20-30 mins unless i actually use the computer. So downloading over-night is not a possibility either.

A:Screen goes black when playing games

Did you try using an older driver? I had a similar issue with Windows 7 x64 7048 not playing games with Cat 9.2 installed. I ended up going back to Cat 9.1, and everything works perfectly.

Hey there!

I've got a quite irritating problem. When I play WoW or Mw2 (haven't tried other games) my computer screen goes black after some time, usually between 10-30 minutes, and my computer fans starts to work for all they're worth. The picture doesn't come back so I have to manually reboot the computer by holding the power button, and the the temperature inside the computershell is cool with a good airflow. I'm running a windows vista 32-bit version and my graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT. I asked the computer store where I buyed it to try and see if they could find the problem, but they had no clue what it could be.
I've tried updating my drivers, scanning for virus etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards
Enertez

Since you didnt have this issue before you updated your drivers in September Have you tried to roll back to the drivers you had before?

I know it sounds simple but check the cables from your PC to the monitor and monitor power cable? Are your drivers up to date? Also what did you use to check the computer temps CPUID works great you can find it here ftp://ftp.cpuid.com/hwmonitor-pro/hwmonitor-pro_1.13-setup-en.exe.

You should never ever use a vacuum to clean your computer. It will ruin the electrical components on the motherboard and any other devices attached inside. Use a can of air or compressed air.
As for your error, what happens when the black screen appears? Can you still hear sound? Does the whole PC lock up?

Don't know if this is the right section to post this in, but here goes.

Recently I have been getting black screens just a while after I have started a game. All sound dies and the computer just keeps running.

I downloaded the SF diagnostics tool and got a folder created, which is attached here.

A:Black Screen when playing games.

Is it a pure solid black screen? How long it is staying? Is it giving any notification balloon from the systrey when it occurs or the display is getting back?

The zip you uploaded contains some crash dumps. Though those are kinda old, but indicates some graphics failure, stop 0x116 BSODs.

In this situation, you need to check the following things.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

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.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
At least 30% free is safe. Also let us know about the wattage of the PSU.

Make it sure that you are using the NVIDIA DRIVERS 320.49WHQL display driver.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Also, it is important to know that if the black screen is accompanied by any balloon like this or not.
Let us know the results.

A:Black Screen while playing games

This is caused by nvlddmkm.sys, part of the Nvidia drivers

Causes:
Bad memory/PSU/PCI slot/GPU/bad driver/incorrect RAM timings or voltages

Test your memory with memtest86: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Remove Nvidia drivers by using Driver sweeper: http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/
Then reinstall the current drivers in safe mode

Test the 9800GT in another PC if possible

This was likely caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys

Have you checked your RAM? Run memtest for 6-8 passes on each stick to see if any of them is faulty.
Also, have you tried flashing your motherboard's BIOS to the latest version?

Hello and welcome davc mate I suspect you have had to wait this long because you have not posted any machine specs - unless we know what we are working with we cannot help you. It's a but like saying my car won't start can you help now unless I know it is a diesel, petrol, electric or gas driven car, make model old / new etc etc where would I start to look??
I am suspecting you know a little about computers because you have run Furmark (your attachment) so please send the specs it is most important we know what you have in the machine.

A:Black screen of death when playing games

You want to run the SSD in AHCI mode. By changing the mode to other settings, you have probably caused some driver incompatibility in Windows. It may be fixable by going into your device manager and uninstalling all IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and their drivers and then installing only the Intel SATA drivers for your motherboard; stay away from the Marvell controllers because the older versions can cause conflicts with SSDs.

The following steps may help with re-installing only the Intel drivers.

To fully re-install a driver, use the following steps.First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
Click Start Menu
Right Click My Computer/Computer
Click Manage
Click Device Manager from the list on the left
Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
Right click the device
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 only if Windows asks you to.
Install the latest driver for the device.

Alternatively:Login as an adminstrative user.
First, download the latest driver. Then do the next steps.
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Hardware and Sound
Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
Find the device you are trying to uninstall by expanding the appropriate set of devices
Right click the device
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 only if Windows asks you to.
Install the latest driver for the device.
I would also recommend running Disk Check with Automatically fix file system errors checked before doing the above. That will fix any corruption to the file system that may have resulted from the forced shut downs and restarts.

A:Black screen after playing Video Games

i would check the the temperatures of the GPU with msi afterburner and see what it idles at and see what it loads at when gaming your card might over heating or it might just be failing. also you might want to reseat your RAM and GPU and in your bios disable onboard audio to see if it fixes your issue. Check your even logs in windows and see if any odd errors come up. Finally use speccy > Speccy - Download and publish your report by going to file/publish snapshot like below then link us to your snapshot so we can see if anything looks odd.

A:Screen goes black for a few seconds while playing games (R9 290)

Before I answer your main question...





Quote:
When i load into the UEFI, my RAM displays as all sticks running at 1600 MHz. Even though 2 of my sticks are 1866.


That's normal. Your RAM will always clock at the lowest speed for the sticks in use. In this case 1600, because they are the lower speed of the two sets, so all the RAM clocks at that speed.

On to the video problem...

I have the same issue in Bioshock Infinite, the screen will black out after about 5 minutes of play, but I can hear everything. I discovered that its a problem in Catalyst Control Center. Setting the fan to auto speed will have it run about 20% and that's fine for normal use, but it never increases with the card temperature. It seems to be a bug. What I had to do was to set the fan to manual and run the fan at about 60% (can barely hear it). No more black screens.

I don't have the same card as you, but the problem I was having is the same as yours. I can't say I think much of AMD's temperature sensors on their graphics card either. Mine is always about 20 lower than my fan controller's temp reading says. No wonder my fans won't go faster. Afterburner may be having the same problem and not increasing your fan speed enough. If it's reading the wrong temperature...

In another Thread there was a guy with the same problem, he attached the MX-4 somehow and I don't know what that is, is it something you buy or is it something you download? The MX-4 seemed to be working for him so I wanna try that.

MX-4 is thermal paste for your cooling unit on the CPU. There are other possible factors that cause black screens. Run the FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net and |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card.

Also, overheating may be caused by dust. Get a can of compressed air and blow your system out keeping the can as upright as possible.

How long have you been having problems? How old is your hardware? How old is your Windows installation? When was the last time you did a clean install (format and install) or repair install (install over the top of the current installation through Windows) of Windows 7?

I'm posting this here because it is more of a general issue and not a gaming issue. If you feel it should be moved, go right ahead.

Out of the blue, my games randomly "visually" lock up and then go to a black screen, all the while still actually playing. Nothing is happening on my screen but the games are actually still working (I can hear my car driving and responding to my controls, or I can hear a gun shooting when I hit the button, but I can't SEE anything).

When I quit, my display colours are either reduced from 32bit to 16bit, or my screen size is reduced to 800x600 and the refresh rate is lowered to 60Hz. Sounds like my video card is resetting or something.

What's wrong with my computer?
 

A:ALL Games going to a black screen but keep playing in background

Do you have a graphics card or onboard video ( gfx built on to your motherboard) ? Sounds like the latter and insufficient memory (RAM) .
What OS are you running ? How much RAM do you have ? Do you have a graphics card installed ? If this is a new occurence have you made any big changes to your system recently ?

Have you tried:

or

2.) Connecting the monitor to a different computer to see if the problem still exists?

Pretty much what happens is that i'll be playing a game for about an hour or two, and then the screen will suddenly go black, but the audio still plays. To get the computer responding again I have to manually restart the computer. This happens at random times in my games; I could be playing for not even 5 minutes and it will stop responding, and sometimes I can play for 3 hours straight and not a single thing happens.

Just played black ops 3 for a good 30minutes, then my screen went black, and few seconds later the screen posted "No Signal"
I have googled this and i have checked the event viewer, which shows alot of critical errors.
It leads to "Kernel Power ID 41"


Everything is stock currently, so no overclocking done yet.

I also was send to a thread on this forum, and some guy had the same problem, turned out it was a software issue, now i dont know if it is a software issue for me,

It could be anything really..

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

Hi everyone

I had the problem that my computer shuts down while playing games or just browsing the internet. At first I got a black screen, but was still able to hear sound (e.g. music player) for ~2-3 seconds. This happened every 1-60 minutes after booting... (If I run in secure mode, everything was fine) So I decided to set up a clean installation of Windows. BUUUT the problem occurs again. Not every 15 minutes, but it occurs.

I'm not quite sure if this is right, but I've got the feeling that this began again after installing all automatic updates. Ofc I have the recent versions of graphic card drivers etc.

Just like described in the BSOD forum I attach a zip with further informations including dump files etc.


I would be sooo happy if you could help me solving this problem.

If that +12v rail voltage is accurate then that would definately be a problem. Check the voltage in the BIOS as it could be a simple case of HWMonitor not reading the sensor output correctly.

Can you give us a DXDiag report.

Click Start and type "dxdiag" (without the quotes) in the Run box.

When the dxdiag window opens click the Save All Information button and save the text file to your desktop or another location so you know where it is.

Then copy and paste the entire content of that text file into a reply here.

Hi there.

My PC is currently crashing without a BSOD when playing games. The screen just goes black, but my computer stays on. I have to power it off manually with the power button. I've previously had issues with BSODs showing an error with atikmdag.sys , but they were very infrequent. This type of crash has been happening multiple times a day.

Thank you so much for your help!

Hello Duecez.

A stop 0x116 is a graphics related error. And for it, you need to follow the guide: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Uninstall Avast using Avast Uninstall Utility. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Let us know the results.

This has been bothering me for a while. After a few minutes of playing any newer game, my monitor will go black and tell me there is no connection. The sound usually loops at that point and I can do nothing but hard reset.

I've been trying to find an answer online and thought my psu was the problem, so I bought a new one (now at 550 watts), but that hasn't helped. My computer is pretty old, (the processor is an AMD athlon 3500) with an updated graphics card, (BFG nVidia 9600 oc).

Any advice? Is it a temperature problem or just the result of an old processor? What other info can I provide that may aid in finding a solution?

A:screen goes black computer locks up when playing video games

Happened once to me, my case it was the video driver that stopped working. Go to device manager and find out the information about your driver and then go to the website of the manufacturer and update.
Look for any yellow markers when inside the device manager
How to Find Drivers
search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone - will help you search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- - if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- The most common drivers are listed on this page: http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html
To remove any left over driver remnants, especially from graphics cards, use driver sweeper

So I ve encounterd this issue while im playing video games (mostly Tera), in the middle of the game the computer screen goes black (sometemies even other colors), but my computer is still running, although my Hard drive indicator isnt blinking.
I have a:
Intel core i5 3570k, Asus gtx 770, 8 gb of ram, 1TB HDD, 650W Psu,
I dont think its because of overheating, because when i look up the temperatures the max on my gpu is 75? on full load what is fine for the 770, and my cpu is on full load at about 54? max.
So could it be a software problem or my HDD is not working properly.
If anyone could reply i would be thankful.
Thank you!

Ok, so just recently, when I start any game (whether it be CS:S or Guild Wars) my monitor goes black but you can still hear the game sound. I've never had this problem with my computer before and it has just started recently. My hardrive is still spinning so it's not like it is crashing so I have no idea. It just recently stopped going black for CS:S (Counter-Strike:Source on Steam) but now it does it for Guild Wars (MMO/RPG) so I'm really confused. My monitor is find doing everything else and never have experienced this problem doing anything else on computer. Any ideas?
 

A:Monitor goes black when playing games

I'd say it's your graphics card failing or possibly the power supply getting weak.

Hi Jeff,
That 'beep' that you get is probably telling you that your computer is not meeting all the hardware requirements for the P.O.S.T. (power on self test) but it sounds like your video card stops responding to commands from the display driver. whats happening when this goes on? like gpu temp, is your card overclocked? certianly not the only things to cause this but among the most common.

Overclocking -
I recommend if you are overclocking any hardware, that you reset these values within the BIOS to their default values in order to increase the stability of your system.

Please run the following tests for your graphics card and RAM:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Graphics Card:Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Read all the steps within the hardware test tutorials very carefully, as stress tests is designed run components to their maximum capacity, in order to point out failing or faulty hardware components.

Use the following program to monitor your hardware temperatures during the stress test:CPUID HWMonitor
Hard Drive:Disk Check
CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World
SeaTools for Windows | Seagate
Scan for corrupted or missing Windows files with:SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
Please check for the latest driver updates (may have to install a older driver) for your graphics card on the manufacturer's website, and check for any driver compatibility issues with:Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows
If you are using DirectX, then try uninstalling and then reinstalling the DirectX API:How to download and install DirectX

Built my own computer, and for a while it ran fine, but now when I try to play League of Legends it will crash often. Sometimes the game freezes, and no method of input will change the screen until I hold down the power button. In this case my speakers emit a high pitched noise. Other times the screen will go black, and the computer will automatically restart. Other times I will get a blue screen with the error code 0x00007e. Please help this is getting very annoying!

I should note that it is not often that it crashes, sometimes it will happen twice in a short time, sometimes it will take days.

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Probably hardware. Clean out dust in the system, if you have overclocked stop and revert to original settings. The link contains the most probable solution to your problem. IF the problem cannot be fixed i suggest lowering the vcore a tad tad bit.
Here are stresstests to possibly help rule a few things out. : Stresstests:
Ram : RAM - Test with Memtest86+
General hardware: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 ( (Three pre-set configurations are available: Small FFTs and In-place FFTs, and Blend. Small and In-place modes primarily test the FPU and the caches of the CPU, whereas the Blend mode tests everything, including the memory.)
Graphics: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark (Do the above Graphics test only with the latest drivers, and then Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; should be less then 10 minutes. If you don't see any crazy glitches or distortion on the screen, The test most likely passed. Take note if the Temperature gets too high, or you see Visual artifact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia to stop the test.)
Good luck.

I've tried updating the drivers, making sure nothing was overclocked, ram memtest and furmark. memtest found no errors, same with chkdsk and it didn't crash in furmark
my average temp of gpu is 31 degrees Celsius.

It plays sound for a few seconds afterward but then becomes unresponsive to the power button and keyboard so I have to turn the psu off.

The problem started around a week or two ago. When I run full screen games, the screen becomes black and the system does not respond to anything. Programs in the background still run as audio can still be heard. I suspect it may be BSOD but am unsure. The problem does not occur right away, it happens when the program has been on for around 10 minutes.

Some additional info: When I received the computer from the seller, I accidentally uninstalled some drivers and had to reinstall them. I tried to find the drivers on the NVIDIA site but the ones marked for my GPU did not work. I found another driver that worked, but I am not sure if that caused other issues.

Hey everyone,

I have been experiencing a blue screen... well, a restart with a message that tells me it was a blue screen... Basically, im playing world of warcraft, and my monitor goes dark, says theres no signal, even though all the tower lights are on, and it restarts. Then I get a message saying that windows recovered from an unexpected shut down and the error was a blue screen.
I downloaded blue screen view, and it says the bug check code is 0x00000116, and the driver was dxgkrnl.sys .
A quick google search says its a video card thing? Didn't really understand... But, It only happens while playing a certian character, and not other ones. I'll include the dump file, and if anyone could help, it would me greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

Running windows 7 64 bit, it's a preinstall from dell, and i've never done a clean install cause dell doesnt send disks anymore.

Hi,

My previous operating system (Vista Home Premium) crashed and I lost everything. I also misplaced the installation disc so I just decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Everything works fine aside from the games don't accommodate the full desktop screen even though it is already set to full mode. I can see black screen on both left and right sides of the screen.

I already searched this forum for the solutions but still no luck. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 125 and my processor is Intel Core 2 Duo. I don't know if that helps...

Additional information: I boot into safe mode and all the games display fine.

Thanks in advance to those who can help.

A:Blue Screen while playing games.

Hello FusionEko and Welcome to TSF,

The faultcode for your last two BSODs (the ones i've gone through so far) is:

Code:
BugCheck 4A, {74d12e09, 2, 0, fffff88009374ca0}
Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiSystemServiceExit+245 )
PROCESS_NAME: rustyhearts.ex
BUGCHECK_STR: RAISED_IRQL_FAULT
So my best guess it's happened while playing Perfect World/Rusty Hearts?
Even if the game itself may not have been started, an updater or some sort seems to have been active aswell, which could've been the cause to it.

Your displaydriver:

Code:
atikmpag.sys Wed Apr 20 02:22:32 2011 (4DAE3558)
Is quite up to date, but there is a newer one available, so I do recommend you going with that.

But the main cause is a driver related to this game, so either a graphicsdriver or a specific systemfile/driver for your game. I'll look through the other BSODs and let yo know what I find! Meanwhile update the display driver and possibly reinstall the game.

I'm experiencing the "Blue screen of death", it recently just occurred and it hasn't happened before when I was gaming. The exact date as where it started to do that is in the morning of the 2nd of October 2012. What happens when I experience the blue screen is that I try to get into a game, it loads and I last about around 50 seconds to 4 minutes for normal gaming and then it starts, the graphics go haywire, as in it looks like random shapes and polygons and waypoints, it pixelates then crashes giving me that blue screen. It only affects gaming, nothing else. I have already tried to reinstall the drivers for my graphics card and also my computer is not even 1 year old at this point in time Please help!

A:Blue screen playing games

Probably caused by : atikmpag.sys ( atikmpag+64da )

See if there is an update for your ATI Radeon HD 3870: AMD Support & Drivers

If this is the latest driver try:

Download Driver Sweeper from - Guru3D - Driver Sweeper
Install DriverSweeper
Uninstall your Radeon drivers from the Control Panel > Programs and Features
Reboot your system into safe mode (Hit F8 during Boot)
Run DriverSweeper (from within Windows Safe Mode)
Check on "AMD-Display"
Hit Analyze
Select All and Hit "Clean"
Reboot back into Normal Windows (not safe mode)
Install your new drivers

Hi all,

In the last month or 2 i've started getting a blue screen happy occasionally while playing a game called "SMITE". It doesn't happen when im just browsing or listening to music ect. I don't play any other game on my pc so can't comment on if it happens on other games or not. The blue screen says "Beginning dump of physical memory" at the bottom.
I've followed the guide so hopefully what i've attached is the info you need. I have no idea about computers so you'll have to bare with me .

Any help would be great

Please update your driver and follow these suggestions

What I would like to is have you reinstall the graphics driver, I would just like you to try it a little different. Please just install just the graphics driver and nothing else. Follow these instructions to try to get a good clean install and see if that works any better.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.

We do need the actual 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.

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:

* 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:

* 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.


Your McAffe is mentioned in two of the dmps. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials

Hello,

How are the temps? Install HWMonitor and post a screenshot of the program at idle and under load.

Has the fan and vents been cleaned lately?

Try the steps below to completely uninstall the graphics driver:
-Download Driver Sweeper here and install it. Don't run the program yet
- First, Uninstall the NVidia driver/software from Control Panel > Uninstall a program and restart
-Now run Driver Fusion, select Nvidia Display and then select Delete
-After complete restart the PC then install correct Graphics driver from the MSI Support Site.

The dump files that is in the report is 0x116 Video TDR Failure. This can usually be caused by faulty drivers, Overheating, or faulty hardware

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

Quote:




Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?




Bluetooth module is disabled, please:
- enable the device
- update it's drivers
- disable it again if so desired (remove it from the system if not)

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver).
Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.

Quote:




Please uninstall all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program
Then, download and install a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
- Select the "Custom" installation option and don't let it install AMD OverDrive or the VISION Engine Control Center (if present)
Then use the ATI uninstall manager to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center (CCC). This is a separate issue and isn't required for the AMD OverDrive removal.

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem in perfmon /report, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Uninstall". Reboot for changes to take affect.




Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

If all of the above doesn't stop the BSOD's, then start with the free diagnostics here: Hardware Diags

Hi

I've tried to install 2 games (C&C Generals: Zero Hour, and Robot Arena 2: Design and Destroy). After a successful install, I'd click on the .exe file to run the game and a black screen appears. I can NOT close the screen with ctrl+alt+delete or alt+tab, neither can I restart the computer buy pressing the physical button, thus forcing me to turn my computer off at the mains.

System specs:

Vista Home Premium x64
Intel Dual Core E7400
4GB RAM
NVIDIA 9800GT

I've tried running in compatibility mode (XP service pack 2) and they still don't work. Is it possible that these games are simply unable to be used with Vista at all?


Thanks very much for any help.

A:old games get black screen

How old are these games? if really old, you may not be able to make them run on x64. There is another thread about old games & Vista 64 and some other member suggested downloading "Microsoft Virtual PC"... you should look into it.

Hi,
No dump file is present in your upload.

Please navigate to C:\windows\minidump and Upload the files if present.

If no files are logged, be sure you have windows configured correctly, you want Minidumps:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/174459-dump-files-configure-windows-create-bsod.html

Then re-run the SF Tool and post after your next crash.

In the meantime, you can try updating your ATI Radeon HD drivers as they are out dated.

Uninstall all ATI drivers, Catalyst Control Centre following this method.

This is the Latest Version Display Driver ver. 12.104, that you will need.

Also from your Event Logs:

Hi there

Update the driver here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/77228

If the games still do not work you have to configure the switchable graphics. This is a feature to save power by automatically allocating the internal graphics card for small applications so that the power hungry graphics card is not used all the time.

Here is a youtube video to help with switchable graphics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8KqkZ5mTpw

Hope this helps

For few days I've been experiencing BSODs while playing. The error messages spoke of files afd.sys and ntfs.sys.
Regular computer use (browsing internet, printing, using text edditors etc.) causes no such issue.
