    BSOD While playing games

    So over the past maybe 2 days ive been having some issues with random (sort of) bsod crashes. I just recently replaced my vid card (around a month and a half ago) with a gtx 970. Ive only tried this with one game however it seems space engineers causes it and it takes a good 10 min to crash, the only weird thing in this whole deal is last night, i was doing some graphics work in and i had youtube running(if that will make any difference) and it crashed on me then too, same screen as space engineers. A buddy of mine said he has the same issue (his started a few days before mine did) and had mention something about nvidia drivers and windows ten not getting along with each other with direct X. I was wondering if there is a fix or workaround for this. I also copied the details of the crash from windows.

    Daemon tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause for BSOD's.
    Please remove Daemon Tools and run the SPTD pass through remover.

    1. Uninstall Daemon Tools
    2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
      • Double click the executable to open it
      • Click on the button shown below

    If the button is grayed out, like in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can close the window.

    Please uninstall ASUS software, it is known for causing bluescreens.

    The errors are 0x124 WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (Windows Hardware Error Architecture)
    This means that there are problems with your hardware, but this error is also caused by overclocking, faulty drivers or BIOS problems.
    In the BIOS load the optimal default settings, or pull the CMOS battery and put it back.

    this is sort of an update, windows only seems to crash with space engineers, ive tried using games that i have known to crash my system in the past (when i mean in the past i refer to roughly 8 - 10 months ago) games such as diablo 3 i also tried various games that have a higher cpu usage, and some that use more ram as well as some that are extremely graphic intensive and none have been able to crash my system... ive had daemon tools on my pc for about 4 years, never updated, just left it in the boondocks of my system. its never given me and grief. space engineers used to work on my system around 1 to 1.5 years ago ( took a break from it) and i noticed that it had some direct x 9 issues, being it just doesnt work with the default being dx9. i found a way to "force" the game to run in dx11 (game does have that option) and so the game would run but the pc would crash around 10 minutes into playing.

    so more to my point, is there any chance that the forcing dx11 on the game could be causing a conflict with either nvidia or my vid card? its kind of a long shot but i havent had a crash in at least 3 weeks and i havent been playing that game.

    Did you try following?
    Problem:Space Engineers won't open with default settings (DirectX 9)
    Solution: Some players have had trouble using DirectX 9 but found that DirectX 11 will work without issues. Open%appdata%\SpaceEngineers\SpaceEngineers.cfg in a plain text editor like notepad. Find GraphicsRenderer - it is usually near the top. Change its value from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11.

    that is precisely what i did, i modified that config file to run the game dx11 and it just blue screens my pc, while dx9 just didnt run the game.

    Please follow BSOD Posting Instructions and upload a new zip so I can analyse the crashes to get more information into this, I can't suggest something with limited information.
