    BSOD when gaming


    First post here. I am looking to troubleshoot a recurring BSOD that I have been experiencing for awhile. The issue usually occurs when playing a resource-intensive gaming title (BF4 or GTAV). I have an r9 390 now, but I had similar issues when I was using a gtx660.

    I have run the tool and attached the ZIP file that was created. Please let me know if you have thoughts or if you need anything else for troubleshooting.

    I appreciate your help!

    Thank you for your time. Before posting here, i uninstalled the AMD driver and ran Driver Verify, with the next BSOD error being caused by the Intel smart connect technology driver. I then uninstalled that as well, which was followed by Windows reinstalling both of those drivers automatically (presumably the most current versions). I ran Driver Verify once more, which again pointed to the current AMD driver. So that's when I thought I'd make a post here.

    1) Can I keep Windows from automatically detecting my GPU and installing a driver, and can I tell it to not reinstall things like Intel Smart Connect?

    2) if it turns out that Driver Verify is crashing the newest AMD driver for my GPU, what can I do about that?

    I will follow the rest of your advice this evening and update the other drivers you listed.

    Thanks again!
