    Constant BSODs while playing World of Warcraft


    I have constant BSODs while playing World of Warcraft. I do not have BSODS at any other time.

    Sometimes the BSOD message is: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
    Other times: KERNAL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE

    Any help is appreciated. Ive been having this problem for month and I'm at my wits end.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Hello nudelz,

    Welcome to TenForums

    Can you confirm if your motherboard is the Rev 3.1 model.
    If it is then there is a newer BIOS (ver FC) that you can install.

    If this does not make a difference then we will need to start by checking your memory.


    Constant BSODs while playing World of Warcraft Diagnostic Test Constant BSODs while playing World of Warcraft
     RAM TEST

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    Addition:
    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up you can immediately stop the test, any error is a problem.

    I'm not very computer literate. How can I check to see which version it is?

    It will be written somewhere on the motherboard itself.

    Hi,

    Yes, it is Rev 3.1

    I will try to update the BIOS today (I've never updated a BIOS before), then I will play for a few days to see if the BSODs are gone.

    Thanks for the help!

    Apparently they don't offer a new BIOS for windows 10. Or am I misunderstanding something?

    On the Gigabyte website, they do not appear to offer a BIOS update for Windows 10.

    That's because it is an old motherboard. The BIOS Ver. FC was updated in 2012 long before W10 was created. It will still be OK to use it.

    I hate to be a pain, but could you provide a direct link or tell me which version of driver to download (Windows 8 64 bit?).

    When you click on the BIOS section there is no requirement to select an OS. You just need to select in the row for Ver FC to download the BIOS file. You may also need to consult the motherboard manual to find out the best way to update the BIOS.
