    BSOD's several times a day. Always happens when I try playing a game.

    Hi. Thank you for taking the time to try and help me. I've been trying to see if I could figure out the problem on my own, but I've only been striking the air, and it's happened so often and It's really causing me headache especially when I'm playing a game with my friends and it's very concerning. I've had several different error titles with my crashes, so it doesn't seem fitting to name one specifically in my title.

    I've had BSOD's before and thankfully axe0, a frequent forum goer, graciously helped me sort of find/solve the issue - here's that thread in case it may prove useful: "Old BSOD's thread" Unfortunately I'm having issues again now and I'm stumped here.

    Here's the dm log collector file below:
    Attachment 61649
    It contains all BSOD's from the last 4 days. I figure you guys don't want any later than that so I deleted the older ones in the zip file, but if you do want them, let me know and I'll make a new file with them and give it to you right away.

    My rambles, if at all useful:
    With some of the errors I've gotten from my BSOD's and my game, I could see the issue possibly having to do with bad memory, but it is just a theory. There's also a very good chance that my integrated Intel graphics or my discrete Nvidia graphics could be causing the issues, cause they did cause BSOD's in the past. Though, as axe0 suggested in my old thread, I disabled my Nvidia graphics so there would be no conflict between the two. This did work for a little while, but as said earlier, I'm now having issues again, even with Nvidia disabled.

    I would have thought that your Nvidia GFX card would be the better of the two options..
    have you tried switching on the Nvidia GFX card and stopping the INTEL onboard gfx, instead..

    Thank you for replying. I have tried before but I know I had issues then. I cannot remember exactly what they were. Also, not sure how much it matters, but I have a laptop.

    Just now, I was able to enable Nvidia and then disable my Intel card via device manager. With my Intel graphics disabled, my game will not load at all (sits there with "not responding" error). Interestingly, with it disabled, I tried to click on my Nvidia settings and it said "You are currently not using a display attached to an NVIDIA GPU". Can NVIDIA run without the intel? Idk.

    I wanted to restart my PC while my intel graphics card was disabled to see if maybe that would change some things, but it turns out that with it disabled, I was unable to open the start menu via clicking the windows home icon on the bottom left of the desktop taskbar. So instead I tried to use Ctrl + Alt + Del to shutdown my PC, but not even that worked when I had my intel graphics disabled. So, I decided to not to reboot my PC with it disabled and I now have it enabled.
