BSOD When playing BF3 (graphic intense game)

I keep getting the blue screen of death when playing EA Battlefield 3. Whilst playing it seems fine, with all the graphics turned on low, but after 20-30 minutes I will eventually get a blue screen. I have no other problems playing any other games, and I never get blue screens, its only since playing this game.

I have run memory tests, all OK.

If anyone out there can help me, and read into this attached DMP file, and help me find out exactly what is causing the problem, I would be very grateful.

Please see attached

Hi montyxi and Welcome to The Forum.

STOP 0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (go to top of page)
Usual causes: Device driver

Your latest dump file lists atikmpag.sys as the probable cause. This is one of your graphics drivers.
Old and incompatible drivers can and do cause issues with Windows 7, often giving false error codes. Random stop codes can often indicate hardware issues.

As a Priority:

spuz.sys Sun Oct 11 21:55:14 2009 A derivitive of sptd.sys The sptd.sys driver is notorious for causing BSOD's with Windows 7. It's a driver used and installed along with Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120 which you'll also have to uninstall.
Then use the correct (32bit or 64bit) download from Duplex Secure - Downloads to uninstall the SPTD.SYS driver.
Make sure to select the uninstall button! DO NOT SELECT INSTALL!!

AVG is known to be a cause of BSOD's on Windows 7 systems. Suggest that you uninstall it. Download the correct AVG Remover for your system (32 or 64 bit).
If you have AVG ID protection installed, download the AVGID Protection Remover from the above link as well (it wouldn't hurt to download and run it anyway). Download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as AVG's replacement.
Uninstall AVG through the Control Panel. Re-boot to Safe Mode and run the AVG Removal tool(s). Re-boot to normal mode and install MSE. Make sure your Windows firewall is enabled!

Re-install your Graphics drivers. AMD Graphics Drivers

  • Download and install Driver Sweeper.
  • Uninstall your current Graphics setup through Programs and Features
  • Boot to and run (preferably) Driver Sweeper in Safe Mode to clean up the remnants of your current Graphics set up.
  • Reboot to Normal Mode.
  • Install your new Graphics set up.

Let us know how it goes. If you get further problems with blue screens, attach your new dump files and details and we'll move on from there.



Thanks for your reply. I have yet to follow these steps, though I will be later today. Since then I have had another blue screen, which this time said something about win32.sys. I attach the crash dump file. Are there any more clues in this 1?

Hi monti,

Apart from what has been previously mentioned:

hamachi.sys Thu Feb 19 10:36:41 2009 LogMeIn or Hamachi Virtual Network Driver Update or Uninstall.

This dump blamed memory corruption (but not to take that to literal with the previous bad guys mentioned!).

Can you also: Download and run CPU-Z. Take screenshots**/snips of the Mainboard tab, Memory tab and all the slot #'s under the SPD tab.
Go to Post Reply, click on the Go Advanced button and attach the screenshots**/snips to your post for all the RAM experts to see by using the paper clip you will find on the top toolbar. Do not zip them up.
**If screenshots, please crop.

Hi Elmer

Thanks for your help so far. Here are the screenshots of the CPU-Z information you requested. I have since uninstalled AVG, Hamachi and also turned off deamon tools. I have since got another BSOD, and have attached the minidump file also. I noticed this time on the bluescreen error, mentioning dxgmms1.sys.

I'm hoping your latest dump is before removing AVG, Hamachi etc. as AVG and Daemon are still showing. By the way, "turning off" Daemon won't work, it needs to be removed, as do AVG, hamachi etc..

Your RAM timings look pretty good to me, but I'll need to get confirmation on that.

However, your bios is well out of date. Rather, there have been several updates to improve performance / reliability. You're currently running version F3 dated 2008/09/18 and the latest version is version F12 2010/01/18. Link here: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-EP45-UD3R (rev. 1.0)

And Thanks for giving your zips a unique name to you. One less little task that with repetition becomes err, boring!!

UPDATE!!! Ram timings are good. Told to tell you to make sure your vimm in bios is set to 2.1v.

Hi Elmer

Thanks for your help, very much appreciated.

Well since flashing the BIOS on the motherboard, I have had no more Blue screens! ... I have used my machine extensively, trying to provoke a blue screen (which was easy prior to upgrade). But things seem to be fine.

I had some problems removing AVG. For some reason it was not listed as a installed program under the Programs and Features. So I used to AVG uninstaller. I had some problems with this too, so I used a AVG remover provided by AVG themselves on their website. However, It was still running in my system tray, although it was no longer protecting my system, it would only allow me to do a "scan". So I just removed it from msconfig, so that it wouldnt start up.

I left Daemon tools running also as a test, and seems to be fine still. So I guess bios upgrade did it.. on the motherboard.. !!

If I get any more blue screens I will post back.. but to be honest I have used it alot... and so far so good. So thanks again Elmer!

Good to hear Monty and Thanks for the feedback.

As many people will have problems with Daemon/sptd and AVG as will people who will not. When trying to help people to solve there bsod problems the obvious thing to do is remove things that we know can cause problems. It's one less doubt to have on your mind.

As long as you're sorted is the main thing though. And Good Luck!! And remember, A dog is not just for Christmas, and we are here for the good times as well as the bad!! :D
