Hello, I've been having a BSoD problem for a couple months now, and it seems like whenever I have a game on for a while, minimize it, leave for a bit, and come back and exit the game, BSoD comes up. I ran crystal disk info and saw that I was having sector failures on it, so I bought a new one (I needed a bigger internal anyways...) and re installed windows 7, but BSoD kept coming up. I'm thinking its the possessor only because its kind of old, but not too old that BSoD would be expected... Before I buy a new anything, I want to make sure I have diagnosed it correctly (which I am spectacle on, lol). There are also random times where windows color scheme seems to fail and I'm left with this blue window border, and then randomly sets its self back to normal... I'm thinking about re installing windows once more, but I'm sure that wont fix anything.... If anyone has incite to this, it would be much appreciated! Thanks!
Thanks for suggusting the whocrashed program, I got this many times:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntfs.sys (Ntfs+0xF1C7C)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0xFFFFF88001104C7C, 0x0, 0x8, 0xFFFFF88001104C7C)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ntfs.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT File System Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.
I will try to figure it out from here, thanks for you're help!
