    Computer giving me BSODs when gaming

    Hello, I've been having a problem with my computer giving me BSODs for the past month or so when gaming. I only get these BSODs when gaming and never in any other situation. It also seems rather random, yesterday I had no crashes, the day before I did, the day before that I didn't, but today it crashed twice within the matter of minutes each time, so the problem seems to be worse now.

    I am wondering if my video card is going bad, I did try to overclock it when I got it but didn't manage to get a stable overclock and reverted it to factory settings afterwards. But it has been working fine for months and, like I said, I've not gotten a single crash outside of games. Also, when I get a BSOD, the computer makes a very loud buzzing noise until it reboots.

    Only one dump in the zip file you uploaded. Are you running CCleaner or similar program? If so stop until this problem is resolved so we can get more dumps to look at.

    The dump you uploaded has no useful info in it.

    Here are some things you can do to see if you can shake out a more solid problem.

    1. Test your RAM
    2, Run Driver Verifier
    3. Stress test CPU.
    4. Stress test GPU.


    Follow this tutorial: MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums


    is a diagnostic tool designed to test Random Access Memory (RAM) for faults. MemTest86+ will verify that:

    • RAM will accept and keep random patterns of data sent to it
    • There are no errors when different parts of memory try to interact
    • There are no conflicts between memory addresses

    Memtest86+ runs from bootable media to isolate the RAM from the system, no other components are taken into account during the test.

    MemTest86+ needs to run for at least 8 passes to be anywhere near conclusive, anything less will not give a complete analysis of the RAM.

    If you are asked to run MemTest86+ by a Ten Forums member make sure you run the full 8 passes for conclusive results. If you run less than 8 passes you will be asked to run it again.

    MemTest86+ has been known to discover errors in RAM in later passes than the eighth pass. This is for information only; if you feel there is a definite problem with the RAM and 8 passes have shown no errors feel free to continue for longer.

    Running 8 passes of MemTest86+ is a long and drawn out exercise and the more RAM you have the longer it will take. It's recommended to run MemTest86+ just before you go to bed and leave it overnight.

    Driver Verifier is a diagnostic tool built into Windows 10, it is designed to verify both native Microsoft drivers and third party drivers. Driver Verifier's verification process involves putting heavy stress on drivers with the intention of making bad, outdated, incompatible or misbehaving drivers fail. The required result is a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which will generate a crash dump for debugging purposes.
    Machines exposed to Driver Verifier will run very sluggishly due to the stress being applied to the drivers.

    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable in Windows 10

    Pay close attention to
    and make sure the correct boxes are checked.

    It is not advised to run Driver Verifier for more than 48 hours at a time. Disable Driver Verifier after 48 hours or after receiving a BSOD, whichever happens soonest.

    Always create a Restore Point prior to enabling Driver Verifier.

    What we're looking for is a BSOD with a mini dump that will tell us what driver caused it.
