    Hello I'm getting BSOD a lot (I don't have to use safe mode, I can use normal) and need some help. Here are some of the messages I've gotten.

    Howdy,

    take a look and see if any minidumps have been created

    you will find them here They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump

    Copy the last 3 and compress them zip or Rar and Go Advanced in your post then Manage Attachments and post them

    Note Do not try to compress them until you have copied them to somewhere else.

    Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys

    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe

    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe

    I would first check for any update drivers for your video card at least uniinstall the driver and reinstall it

    When do you get the BSODs when your playing a game?

    Wait, should I uninstall the video card as a whole, or just the drivers, because I don't know how to uninstall drivers.

    It also points to the memory....so you could run a memory test

    There is a built in One on Windows 7 but I am unsure how good it is........a tried and tested on is Memtest but you will have to burn a CD in ISO and then restart the PC with the disc in the cd drive and it will boot from it and begin the tests....an good number of passes it suggested.

    It BSOD'd while installing the drivers, so I think it might be a memory issue, do you want me to send you the newest dumps if there are any?
