Windows 10: BSOD while playing a specific game

    BSOD while playing a specific game


    For some reason, while only playing Overwatch I commonly get driver crashes or rarely get BSODs.


    This BSOD is related to GPU driver issues according to this post:


    I've already updated my drivers (reinstalled them multiple times and installed old ones), checked for memory errors, checked for viruses, updated my BIOS, ran 3DMark for any artifacting, temperatures are always around 69șC while in 100% usage.

    Is there something wrong with the game or it's my computer?

    I would appreciate your assistance,

    Hi Marky,

    I hope you have not installed anything from reviversoft :)

    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial for the installation part NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Thought so, although it's not 100% accurate, according to Nvidia, the drivers I had were dated 2016.6.7.
    Anyways, is there anything else I have to do to resolve this issue? Because I've done this before, and still got crashes, but I never attempted to uncheck some of the items while installing Nvidia drivers.

    There are more display related drivers from Nvidia.

    I gave my current suggestion, until a BSOD proves that it doesn't work I have nothing else to offer.

    The new nVidia drivers are really messing with everyone's computers. I will surely be avoiding nVidia in future as I too have random freezes/rare BSODs after the latest driver update. Use DDU to unistall driver completely and roll back to 365.19. That didn't completely solved my issue but got me down to 1 freeze a day.
