First BSOD
 
After having Windows 7 on this PC for more than 6 months, I have my first BSOD. I don't know where to start. This is the first time I have ever had a BSOD. It occured twice, and both times I was playing Counter Strike: Source. In the middle of the game, the screen goes blue and text appears, and my PC restarts.
The first time it happened, yesterday, when it started up, Kaspersky told me the databases are corrupted, and it updated and that fixed it.
Then today when it BSOD' again, it didn't do anything, just restarted, then Windows 7 told me Windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown.
I really have no idea where to start. I scanned with Malwarebytes, and that found nothing. I have no idea how this could occur. I haven't been torrenting in almost 2 months. No downloads since then as well. No bad sites. I've tried to keep my PC clean for a while.

So where do I start so that this doesn't happen again?

Also, I have no idea if this is related, but when I play TF2, or CSS, the game crashes sometimes and all it tells me is hl2.exe has stopped responding.

Ahh to be young and never have used Windows ME.

Check your Event Viewer in Administrative Tools in your Control Panel. See what the error says. Also test your memory with Memtest86. Make sure all your hardware is properly seated (make sure your video card is pushed in all the way and didn't come loose, etc.).

Post the error from the Event Viewer here. It should be in the System or Applications menu and will have a red flag next to it. Have you changed drivers recently?

LOL yea, when they didn't have any error handling at all and any error just defaulted to BSOD. Good times :lol:

Ok, so I'm in event viewer, and it is saying there have been 2 the past week. And there have, and it corresponds to the time when the BSOD's occured. Here is what they say, I'm not sure if this is what you mean.

Also, unrelated, but I have used Windows 2000, I actually still use it in one of my PC's, that has never BSOD'd.

Also, no I haven't updated drivers lately either.

Hmmm after almost a year with Windows 7 on both my desktop PC and laptop never had a single BSOD. :captnkill:

Do you have Realtek audio? If so try download latest driver, it may fix the issue.

I started getting BSOD's about a week ago, computer would shut down after about 10 minutes.

Turns out it was my water pump, it died.


I suspect the issue could be hardware related.

One of the guys here referred me to this crash dump analyzer - turned out to be Afterburner for me.

That sounds a very useful tool in my line of work. I usualy just try to best guess the dump files.
If this tool works it is a step
forward for me . thanks grey

yw Bro - I think it was Toss3 maybe?? Anyway, it narrowed down my crashes to "Nvidia driver 'or' a related piece of software...so it was pretty spot on.

Ok, so memtest86+. It's telling me

*****Pass complete, no errors, press Esc to exit*****
But that's only after 1 pass, so I'm going to let it go a bit more, or do you think that's enough? Time - 27 minutes, pass - 1, errors - 0, Test 6(it's been going test 4 and 6 back and forth)
