    BSOD while playing games (E:D & Civ 5) or Youtube

    Hi All,
    Hoping to ask for help with frequent BSOD while playing games.
    When playing games (Elite Dangerous or Civ5) and playing Youtube, I will eventually receive a BSOD screen (I've posted an upload of those files in the link below). I've gone through the following trouble-shooting:

    • Watched the temperature: it's remained around the 20-30 C range with the CPU at the lower end and the graphics card on the upper-end
    • Updated drivers: ran windows updates, MSI's updates, etc.
    • Ran MemTest86+ which I had seen as a recommendation in a forum to diagnose faults with RAM. All 12 gigs passed with no issues
    • Re-installed a clean version of Windows 10 and performed the driver updates to get the latest and greatest
    • Unplugged all USB cables with the exception of the mouse and keyboard (removed my USB hub, joystick, etc.)
    • Installed my old graphics card an HIS 7850


    I assume that this is a driver issue with the video card, given the above. If this is correct, is there any way of saying whether it's a faulty video card or user-error?

    edit: removed link to DMP files.

    In case someone finds this later in the search for answers....

    I have a Samsung SSD drive that had not been updated in some time. After performing the update I was able to play for an hour and no BSODs. Will continue to test but this appears to have been the resolution.
