    BSOD when running games

    I'm creating this topic to request the evaluation of crash dump.

    It usually happens after 15 or 30 minutes playing without problem and not in all games

    Note: My computer is new, about 1 month.

    I am Brazilian and I used google translator to translate some of the files generated by sf diagnostics. Were partially translated (I kept the original files created in my native language Portuguese Brazil too.) Sorry if this becomes difficult that can help me.

    Thank you for your help.

    Only 6 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 90 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

    Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

    These drivers aren't installed, please install them:
    Porta serial PCI PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3D&SUBSYS_1C3A1458&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B3 Os drivers para este dispositivo não estão instalados.
    Controlador de comunicação PCI simples PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_8C3A&SUBSYS_1C3A1458&REV_04\3&11583659&0&B0 Os drivers para este dispositivo não estão instalados.
    Não disponível USB\VID_093A&PID_2620&MI_00\6&163532E1&0&0000 Os drivers para este dispositivo não estão instalados.
    The first 2 appear to be a part of the chipset drivers for your system. Please install the latest, Win8.1 compatible version.
    The last item is a USB device, most likely a video camera. Either install the latest, Win8.1 compatible drivers, or uninstall it and physically remove the device from your system.

    These devices are disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?:

    Riva Tuner (along with MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install them immediately!

    If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

    Please uninstall Gigabyte EasySaver and EasyTune. They are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
    These are their drivers:

    This is a STOP 0x116 error, please follow the suggestions here: Please follow these troubleshooting suggestions: Video TDR Timeout - 0x116 + 0x117 - Sysnative Forums
    Also, please monitor your temps with this free utility: HWMonitor CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    About the audio driver from nvidia, I disabled it because I researched the error before asking for help in the forum and some people reported that solved the problem by disabling all NVIDIA High Definition Audio. But it did not work with me.

    I will test the suggested procedures and will return soon with the results.

    Thank you for you help!

    No problem with the audio driver (I'd seen this recommendation previously).
    Just be sure to re-enable it before updating your nVidia video drivers.

    I managed to play for more than 1 hour. About 1:30. When I was playing Assassin's Creed 4 (Game in which occurred the BSOD), decreases the resolution to 1336x768 for more fps.

    Some times the fps was below 30 (minimum 26 fps), and after 1 hour and 20 minutes, the computer froze on the game screen, but there has been no BSOD and only returned to normal using the reset (Note: I never played more than 30 minutes using 1600x900 resolution).

    This may simply indicate that this game is demanding / stressing too much of my video card and causing the problem?

    The interesting thing is that this happened with The Sims 4, but never happened again and I can play for hours and hours without problems.

    I suspect a problem with the video card, but the only sure way to test it is to try another video card.
    If you don't have one to try it with, see if you can purchase a new one from a place that'll let you return it for a full refund if it's not needed.

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I will test if it really is the video card. Many thanks for your help!
