BSOD while doing anything associated with BF3 - HELP

Hey guys, for a few days now I am trying to play BF3 but I keep getting crashes to blue screen saying Windows is shutting down to prevent damage.

ZA-G77-D3H by Gigabye
i5-3570K overclocked but back to original due to being the main suspect for the crash, which is not, at 3.4GHz
Gigabyte 7850 2GB
Can anyone please help me?
Downloading BF3 on origin - crash. Going to Battle Log - crash, playing BF3 crash.... All after only a couple of mins.
Anyone please help, I did everything people said on any forum possible.... Help me PLEASE!
Thanks so much in advance and have a nice day.

Hello and welcome to the forums.
First make sure your machine is configured properly to facilitate the collection of .dmp files.

Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl and press Enter

Click on the Advanced tab

Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump << where your .dmp files can be found later
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.
Please read the first post in this sticky thread here How to ask for help with a BSOD problem
Do your best to accumulate the data required.
Run the SF Diagnostic tool (download and right click the executable and choose run as administrator)
Download and run CPUz. Use the Windows snipping tool to gather images from all tabs including all slots populated with memory under the SPD tab.
Likewise RAMMon. Export the html report, put everything into a desktop folder that you've created for this purpose, zip it up and attach it to your next post (right click it and choose send to, compressed (zipped) folder.
Additionally, if you haven’t already, please take some time and fill out your system specs in your forum profile area .
Good luck

Working on it now :) Sorry, I just got home.

I got this for now, CPU-Z is taking an un-normal ammount of time to download. Meanwhile, that's what I got for you :) Maybe there's no need for the CPU-Z :)


Just got CPU-Z, pictures inside :) Please hurry I am REALLY sick of this...

All four dump files are identical and blame
ta2usb.sys as the offending driver, which seems to be related to Native Instruments Traktor Audio 2 NATIVE INSTRUMENTS : HOME | HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE FOR MUSICIANS, PRODUCERS, DJS, GUITAR AND BASS PLAYERS
My suggestion would be to start there. Remove the device, uninstall any and all associated programs and check and confirm that the drivers is no longer loading.
Check with the device / software vendor and confirm that their product is Windows 7 64bit compatible and see if the have an update, hotfix or patch that may resolve the issue.
Confirm that the machine is not Blue Screening with the device and software removed.

Additionally see if there is anything more recent for this driver
LGPBTDD.sys 7/1/2009 Logitech Game Panel here Logitech - Support & Software Downloads

Will do that. But right now I really wana sleep. Thank you so much!
Do you really think my DAC is the cause for BF3 BSOD? I would never have even consider it! And Ill see if they have any new driver for the logitech G19, but I think they don't since I recently installed it.
Oh, and thank you SO MUCH!

All I can say is what the dump files are indicating at this time. All four which were all dated today, within about three hours of one another reported the same issue as indicated above.
But as a side note I might suggest that some people have found more success when running BF3 if they use their system's BIOS utility to turn off EIST and enable XMP mode for their memory. So you may want to give that a try.
