Games crash midway through and sometimes BSOD occurs


Posts

#1
Hey guys,

So i've had this build for a few months now. It is my first build. Here are the specs:

Intel Core i5-4690K
Zotac GTX 970
8GB Ram
Asus Z-97-A mobo
Windows 8.1

When i'm playing big games such as BF4 or GTA V, it likes to crash midway through the game constantly. I can play BF4 for a while before it crashes back to the desktop and i cannot play GTA for more than 10 minutes before it does the same. Sometimes these games even causes a BSODr. As well as, Crysis 3 just completely crashes and freezes my computer after a very short time of playing,

Also sometimes when i'm rendering a video in Sony Vegas Pro 13, i get a BSOD too.

I think it may be to do with my graphics card but i just can't quite put my finger on it. My GPU drivers are all updated.

Any ideas?

Edit, here is the DM file thing.

Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

STOP 0x00000124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR
Usual causes:
Hardware, Incompatibility, May be driver corruption.
In multiple stacks was the mention of dxgmms1!VIDMM_GLOBAL and the processes are mostly all games.
Also many times was the mention of HAL(= Hardware Application Layer), this also mostly indicates hardware faillure.

All this points to a hardware related problem and as you suggested the culprit could be your GPU.

You could test your Videocard with Furmark FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net

Sometimes Gpu related problems could be triggered by a faulty or weak PSU.

@lifetec, I recommend to stop support until the OP clean installs a genuine copy of Windows.

@lifetec

So how do i go about fixing it?
We are talking about hardware, you can not fix broken hardware.

But as @axO has said you are probably are running illegal windows and according the forumrules we are not allowed to help you any further.

A 0x124 is almost always caused by
  • BIOS problems,
  • hardware (overclocking, dust, damaged cables, improper seated, damaged component, overheating, etc),
  • drivers
Due to this a 0x124 is a hardware error stop code.

Well, at least tell me if i need to buy a whole new graphics card or something. Also, let me know if i need to reinstall windows to help the issue because if it does, then i may just have to splash the cash and just buy it
