    Lots of BSOD during game play...


    Playing various games WoW, Battlefield 3, Rift, Star Wars TOR, just to name a few, after anywhere from 5-30mins of game play I get random BSOD's or game will shut down and pop up box will tell me Windows has encountered an error and is restarting in 1 minute.

    I followed the BSOD reporting info you guys listed and it should be attached. Let me know if there is any other information you need and thank you so much for any and all help in advance!

    After reading more BSOD issues on here, I did some testing myself and may have identified my own issue. I ran MemTest86+ and after only 3 successful test, it ran into thousands of errors. Trying to narrow down which stick, if not both are the problem now.

    If anything else sticks out to anyone else please say something, as I know with computers, 1 problem can lead to others or be the result of another problem. Thanks again for any and all help with this issue.

    Open the case and re-seat your memory sticks, make sure they make good contact then re-run the memory test. If it's still bad then take out 1 stick, re-run again, if it's good, swap in the other stick, re-run ... until you identify which stick is bad. If you decide to replace the bad stick, get the same brand and model otherwise replace the whole thing since memory is pretty cheap now.

    Your latest dump file indicated that you have memory corruption, also in the previous one, it also indicated there's a problem with DirectX. So until you get your memory sorted out, also re-install the video driver
