I recently bought Grand Theft Auto 4 on my pc, it was working fine for about a week. When I got a blue screen while playing it i kind of bypassed it because it was my first bluescreen on this pc. Then when I went to play it again it bluescreen'd again after about an hour of play or so. It has been really difficult to enjoy a new game when you bluescreen everytime you play it. Please help! It didn't allow me to upload the Minidump file itself so ill upload it in a zip file.

Hi,
it looks like you generally need to update stuff but we'll see as I go through the dmp file in further detail:

BiosVersion = P1.00
BiosReleaseDate = 07/29/2011
Please update your bios:

Linksys Network Adapter Wifi driver update if possible:

Asmedia USB3 driver. Please update: (your download is the very top one in the centre for ASM1042)

It also looks like you might be missing one or two drivers. Use the website to see which you need and then use google to get the latest versions:

Ok, update your audio here:

Your Lan/Network drivers are here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...d=7&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Intel Management Engine driver:
You could use Intel's driver update program for this as will update other stuff too like your vga:

Also if your using an SSD make sure the firmware is fully updated.
