    BSOD when launching games

    Hi, yesterday my PC started to BSOD when launching any game.
    A few weeks ago I would get an occasional unexpected store exception stop code.
    Yesterday I got this and a Critical Process died message.I think the problem might be hard drive related but I'm trying to make sure whats causing it first.
    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    1. Please update or roll back the Intel RST driver:

    2. Please check your Disk:

    Diagnostic Test


    Run HDTune to check health and scan for errors.

    Note   Note
    It may take some time, but look for signs of any errors or failure.

    You can also run a disk or health check using CrystalDiskInfo or chkdsk. Refer to the tutorial for details of how to do this.

    Take Screenshots of it and post it here.


    3. U should also do an filesystem repair:

    Repair Windows Filesystem:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt.
    2. In the elevated command prompt, type these five commands below, and press Enter:

    dism /Online /NoRestart /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    dism /Online /NoRestart /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    sfc /scannow
    chkdsk C: /F /R /X
    fsutil dirty set C:

    The SFC command scans the integrity of all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
    If a Windows image becomes unserviceable, you can use the Deployment Imaging and Servicing Management (DISM) tool to update the files and correct the problem.
    For example, you would use DISM to fix Windows component store corruption when a sfc /scannow command is unable to repair corrupted or modified system files because the component store (source) is corrupted.
    Checking your drives for errors every once in a while can help fix some performance issues. Drive errors can usually be caused by bad sectors, improper shutdowns, bad software, corruption, physical damage, etc...
