    BSOD (dxgmms2.sys) SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION every 10-20 min of Arma 2


    Since 2 days I am continuously getting BSOD while playing Arma 2 every 10 - 20 minutes of gameplay. It started with latest Windows 10 update i think.

    I uninstalled the only 3 windows update components from Programs and Features but still BSOD wasn't resolved.
    Then i downgraded my Nvidia drivers (GTX 690) to those released in July last year (353.62). But still BSOD wasn't resolved.

    Attachment 58983 = First dump is before i did anything...(meaning, with latest windows updates + latest nvidia drivers)
    Attachment 58982 = Second dump is after removing all windows updates + downgrading nvidia

    Can you please help ?

    Please try different slots for your GPU's to see if that improves anything.

    That didn't resolve the issue. I still got 2 BSODs today.

    To determine what GPU is causing this you need to remove 1 GPU and test it, switch and test agian.

    Its a single GPU card Nvidia GTX 690 which shows up as 2 GPUs in the system info because GTX 690 has 2 680s on the same board within the graphics card. Physically its just 1 card using 1 slot.

    Thanks for clarifying that :)

    Diagnostic test


    Run Furmark to test your GPU. Furmark tutorial

    Your GPU temperatures will rise quickly while Furmark is running. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if temperatures rise too high
