alright, let me explain my problem. i get the BSoD error quite odten and ONLY doing DX9 operations. games that use DX10 or DX11 this never hapens. here is my event log, i have searched endlessly to figure this out and noone could give me an official reason for it. i even contacted MS tech support and the resoponce i get is "we have no idea what the problem is", exact quote from my email back.
all exceped cod4. i hate steam! but i am forced to use it with metro 2033. but i dont think its the problem because crysis and metro are from steam and they work fine, but left for dead 2 which is from steam doesnt. and my cod4 is not from steam either and it crashes with this BSoD occasionally to.
I have the same problem. It turned out that it was somehow related to the overclock on my CPU. Once I set everything back to normal It went away. just recently though i bought a new intel 950 I7 and have it clocked at 3.7, sure enough first time i played l4d2 it BSOD'd after about an hour.
My system passed prime 95 for a few hours and everything else works, but l4d2 , bsod every time. Same thing, if I remove the OC, works fine. WTF?!
