Windows 8 bsod when playing games


New Member

Sometimes im playing games not that heavy by memory require or heavy graphics .
For example last night i played hours on the game Battlefield Bad Company 2 .
And i had no speical problems.

But today this evening about an hour ago or so i played the new game The Raven an adventure game.
Simple point and click game . And after some time my monitor just closed and i had to close my pc manualy .
Then i started my pc again the windows installed some updates....Then in the end when the windows started again i had this message from the windows that my pc needed to restart....Send information to microsoft or not to send.

This happened to me before too but i cant tell when or i cant say its something happend all the time each X times.
Sometimes it does sometimes not .

Sometimes i see blue screen with long message then need to restart my pc sometimes just the monitor is sjut down like closed and i need to restart my pc.

I also ran before sometimes memtest86 and didnt find any ram memory errors.
So i cant point of any memory problems so far !

My concern/suspicion
Is that the problem/s are with my video card but im not sure i dont have any prove yet.
Sometimes when i see blue screen with long message inside i see in the bottom that it have something with the video card driver or some dll file .

But i have updated my video card drivers already to the latest and it didnt help.

Your BIOS dates from 2009. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

D: drive only has about 5% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

You have 3 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

The memory dump blames your video drivers. Please update them to the latest Win8 compatible version.
Then, please remove the nVidia System Utility (nvoclk64.sys) that dates from 2009.

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! :
