Random BSOD while gaming (probably caused by drivers)

Hi guys, I have a terrible problem. In first 5-10 minutes while playing games I have that freaking BSODs. I don't know what caused (probably caused by graphic card driver) but I tried almost everything. I updated drivers to latest version. I tried memtest and gave no errors. I tried to change some BIOS settings. Even I did a clean format but still having BSODs. Before this problem I have played many games with almost no BSODs. Any help will be appreciated.
My specs
Ram: 4 gb ddr2 800 mhz
Processor: Amd athlon x2 6000+
Gpu: Nvidia geforce gt 520 1gb

If you want dmp files there it is dmp

Edit: I have BSODs while watching videos too now.

  1. Most bsod are caused by drivers (or at least, the more common ones are)

    Can you follow option one here
    and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD

    that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD
    copy that file to documents
    upload the copy from documents to a cloud server and share the link here and someone with right software to read them will help you fix it :)
  2. Hi, I ran the dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://pste.eu/p/s7bV.html

    I can't help you with this. Wait for additional replies. Good luck.
  3. well, that is odd,a 404 on the pastebin? I will get that fixed...
  4. I guess the website deleted it, it was there. I re-pasted it, let's see if it stays this time: https://pste.eu/p/x7By.html

    Your chipset on PC is unlikely to still be supported by Windows 10, that could be one cause. My last PC had an Nvidia chipset and I didn't even contemplate putting win 10 on it. Your board also has no win 10 drivers but I guessed that as soon as I saw it.

    Is this your motherboard? https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/K9N_SLI, I matched it using the MSI number given in the dump file. If so, it has NVIDIA® nForce 570 SLI MCP as its chipset, my last PC had that exact chipset as well as nForce®650i SLI (I had a Asus P5N32E SLI plus)

    there is one newer bios but i doubt it will help.

    I can't tell just which driver is cause, it could be any of them older than 2015

    Apr 20 2011 - nvmf6264.sys - NVidia NForce Network driver
    Aug 08 2011 - BazisVirtualCDBus.sys - WinCDEmu Virtual CD-ROM driver (Bazis Inc)
    Apr 21 2014 - nvstor.sys - Nvidia SATA driver http://www.nvidia.com/

    You won't find newer versions of 2 of those as Nvidia don't have drivers for Win 10 for your board. TBH, the best idea would be to install win 7, if you previously updated a win 7 licence to 10, you can still use the win 7 licence on the same machine. Your board has win 7 drivers, that is as far as it gets.
