BSOD when starting certain games. Help appreciated!

#1
I have tried several different things to fix this issue. I completely checked my ram with a ram checking program. I have never really had a problem with my computer except for at certain times. Whenever I try to play Darkness II, Duke Nukem Forever, or COD MW3, the wonderful BSOD pops up. All of my info is attached. Thank you very much!

Not all reports that are needed have been uploaded. Please follow the instructions here: http://windows7forums.com/blue-screen-death-bsod/38837-how-ask-help-bsod-problem.html

Please un-install the Western Digital software as it dates from 2008

Please
- download a fresh set of the following drivers
- un-install the current drivers (both the Linksys stuff and the ASMedia stuff)
- then install the freshly downloaded drivers (they are blamed in one of the memory dumps):
ae1000w7.sys Fri Jan 15 03:15:48 2010 (4B502434)
Linksys AE1000 High-Performance Wireless-N Adapter

asmtxhci.sys Wed Jun 1 22:27:46 2011 (4DE6F522)
Asmedia USB 3.0 driver

asmthub3.sys Wed Jun 1 22:27:58 2011 (4DE6F52E)
ASMedia USB 3.0 Hub driver

Just FYI - Win7 doesn't like wireless USB network devices. Here's my rant on the subject:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

I have installed the drivers and I am still unfortunately having issues. I personally hate wireless devices with my desktop, however I am stuck in a dorm that only has wifi at the moment :( And the Western Digital software is my external hard drive....Should that even be an issue?

Please zip up and upload the contents of C:\Windows\Minidump with your next post.

Get a wireless card that goes inside the desktop - that way you won't have to use the wireless USB device.
The cards inside the desktop aren't as problematic as the USB one's. You'll be looking for a PCI or PCIe card (depending on the available slots on your motherboard).

The Western Digital software isn't needed to use your external hard drive. As for it being an issue - yes, we see these older drivers from Western Digital causing BSOD's on Win7 systems. If there is some particular task that you do with the Western Digital software, let us know and we can suggest free alternatives that work (IMO) as well or even better.

Everything is good now. I flashed the bios for the motherboard to the newest that is available. Apparently, by default, the motherboard I have doesn't have firmware that completely supports AMD FX chipsets. As soon as I saw that online, I flashed the bios and now I no longer have BSOD issues. Thank you.
