Windows 10: BSOD's when playing graphic intensive games
BSOD's when playing graphic intensive games
First of all, this is my first post here, although I've followed many threads before without an account. I hope I come to be of value to this community.
The main reason I'm writing though is another: I purchased a Clevo P650RG laptop, and I going crazy with BSOD's when gaming. Oddly, they seem to happen only in some games. So far, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skyrim Special Edition and The Crew. They don't last 30min without giving me BSOD's, always related to ntoskrnl.exe
Although, these game are somewhat secondary to me, as I'm more into sim-racing, and I'm able to play Assetto Corsa with my G27 wheel for more than an hour without any problem. So I'm assuming it happens only when I push harder for the hardware since Assetto is relatively light on it. Also, I've working hours straight on it without problems.
I've tried a lot of drivers already, mostly CPU and GPU, but I'm lost. I don't think the problem comes from faulty hardware, but if so I'd also like to know if there's a way to check that (already ran almost half of Memtestx86 without errors though).
I'm attaching a zip created as instructed in "BSOD Posting Instructions" in case someone has a clue of what's going on.
Thanks in advance!
for starters, please test your RAM, and keep an eye on the temperatures while gaming with a software like MSI Afterburner for example.
MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums
Please test RAM for at least eight passes.
Thank you for the reply softwaremaniac!
I just left my computer over-night doing Memtest, I've attached the report to this reply.
About temperatures, I already tested it before and it stays stable around 60º. The laptop has 2 fans for the GPU alone and I specifically asked for some thermal upgrades when I bought it, so I don't think the problem is from there.
Any more suggestions?
please test your memory with the software I told you to and linked, and not the Memtest86. I told you to use Memtest86+.
If that checks out, we'll proceed.
Sorry for the late reply. I've been trying to run the Memtest86+, but I can't make it work, the USB just doesn't boot. I already tried to turn UEFI on and off with no results. Even tried to download the ISO file and make a bootable drive using UNetBootin, no success. Any hints?
That's strange. Try using Rufus for example and let me know how that goes.
Rufus tells me that the image I'm using either is not bootable or uses an unsupported boot or compression method... Am I doing something wrong? I never had this much trouble booting an USB
I suppose so, please try downloading a fresh copy of the iso.
Disable Fast Startup if you use it.
I finally managed to put Memtest86+ running, but I have a question: I left it running overnight, a total of 8 hours and a few minutes, although it only went through 4 passes (no errors though), as I put it on Fail-Safe since I've read somewhere that the Multi-Threading mode wasn't that reliable. Should I trust it to speed the process or do I have to leave it running single-threaded for over 16 hours?
A friend of mine is having bsod issues when playing certain games, example:
Rainbox six siege,
Battlefield One (BETA)
and a few others.
Wondering if anyone can give us a clue as to the cause.

The error code for the BSOD on Windows 10 changes. It is almost never the same each time it comes up. Games like Hitman: Absolution, LoL, and CSGO often make my computer crash in the middle of the game and lead to a BSOD. I've gotten things from...
