Several BSOD's & crashes while gaming!

This has been happening ever since I bought my PC 2 years ago. I've taken it to 4 technicians so far who supposedly ran hardware tests and found nothing, thus weren't able to diagnose the problem. So a some time after I took it to the 2nd store I formatted my PC and BSODs alone have happened multiple times already. My PC crashes after multiple hours of gaming, either it crashes with colored bars on the screen or a blue screen happens (mostly the latter)

Temperatures are normal, video card drivers are up to date, passed all memory tests. Hardware seems to be fine. I've posted this on more than 5 forums already, PLEASE HELP ME!

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Motherboard: ASUS M4A88T-M USB/3
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE 3.4Ghz
RAM: 4GB
GPU: Asus Radeon HD 6850
PSU: Corsair CX-500W
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm

It's usually 000000x1e, 3b. Here are the dump files: http://www.mediafire.com/download/b7c29y7732b421v/BERNARDO-PC-25-06-2014__73557%2C84.zip

  1. I would:
    run memtest86 to confirm that your RAM sticks are good (I expect they are ok)
    run malwarebytes to confirm that you don't have malware corrupting memory
    (not very likely in this case)
    update old drivers that are known to be corrupting memory: (most likely cause of all of the failures.)

    --------------
    4th bugcheck was in the graphics driver, looked like it was attempting to read from a bad address
    most likely some of its data was corrupted by another driver.
    -------------
    third bugcheck was in the graphics drivers, stack looked corrupted.
    looks like you updated the graphic drivers but something corrupted the drivers memory and caused the driver to bugcheck.

    new issues with C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\Fuel\amd64\AODDriver2.sys Tue Feb 11 03:06:52 2014 (been seeing problems related to the use of this driver)


    -------
    second bugcheck was in amdppm.sys Jul 13 16:19:25 2009
    I think this is the AMD power policy managers drivers. should be updated with the chipset drivers for AMD CPU.


    ------------
    you have some drivers you need to update and your motherboard vendor has stopped providing updates for your motherboard. That means you have to find the updated drivers directly from the vendor. All of these old drivers have various issues (corrupt memory, bugs) and need to be updated.

    -you can get the video driver directly from http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
    - Ralink wifi driver (ralink made the wifi chip but the company has been sold to mediatek)
    http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/ and see if you can find your driver
    -amd chipset drivers for your board should be updated also
    NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller Driver (previous BSOD issues with 2010 and earlier versions)
    the driver versions might be hard to find because they are generally released to the motherboard manufacture that bought the chip from them. Sometimes you can find the same chip used on another OEMs board and get the driver for it. Or use a tool that looks at all of your drivers and updates them for you.

    the rt65win7.sys ethernet driver should be easy to find on the realtek site listed below.


    -----------------------
    looked at your first bugcheck 1E 061014-79232-01.dmp
    most likely cause is your usb drivers.

    \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nusb3xhc.sys Thu Apr 22 18:34:36 2010 (4BD0F92C)

    you have other drivers you will need to update:
    very old video drivers

    \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\AtiPcie.sys Mon Aug 24 01:25:26 2009

    (all of the following drivers have various issues, you should update them if you can)
    very old Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility driver ASACPI.sys from 2009
    very old Ralink WiFi driver \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\netr28x.sys Wed Feb 25 19:02:09 2009

    very old ethernet driver Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC

  2. I already did all that. Updated all drivers multiple times already, formatted my PC (those are old dump files, I've updated everything meanwhile and 000000x1e/3b keeps happening. Would this be the graphics card?
  3. Best answer
    delete the old .dmp files and provide new ones. The dump files I looked at had various issues that I had indicated. I cannot say as to the cause of bugcheck dumpfiles you have not provided.

    You might consider, going to your bios and disable your usb 3.0 device in hardware and use your main chipset USB 2.x device. (to eliminate one cause of potential corruption)

    otherwise you will need to run verifier.exe and set some degbug flags on all the 3rd party drivers and attempt to force windows to check the drivers for common bugs and bugcheck when one of the drivers attempts to overwrite system memory that does not belong to it. If you do this, windows will bugcheck and save the name of the driver that causes the corruption. (assumes your hardware is ok)
