BSOD and crashes while playing intensive games HELP.

Hello, lately i've been having issues with my pc i keep getting blue screens out of nowhere while playing games like csgo, battlefield, rainbow six siege and others.
I have been struggeling to find out what is wrong with installing all new drivers and also older versions, memtest, lowered settings, put my games on different drives and nothing seemed to have worked i am out of options and in need of help.

Specs:
Intel i5 6500
Gigabyte GTX 1060 6gb
2x4 gb memory (Corsair Vengeance LPX)
B150 PC MATE (motherboard)
stock cpu cooler and a fuck ton of fans

    What PSU are you running?
  2. Hello... Windows also keeps records of problems in the Event Viewer and I find it much easier to read... You NEED to be logged on as administrator to the OS.

    Right click computer-manage-System Tools-Event Viewer-Windows logs-system.... Click on the "RED" "Critical" errors, for more information... and files/drivers/Apps, comments/suggestions/information, General/Details associated with them.

    Expanding Window panes and Posting screen images from here will help us, help you faster... But copy and posting text will work too B )

    APPs Calls can cause them... and OS Calls can cause them... and hardware can cause them... We need to fix/look at them in that order first.

    1) Do you have any RED or Yellow marks in your Control panel-Device manager?
    2) kernel 41 errors mean the OS was not properly shut down... either by You OR the hardware.
  3. I have the Kernel Power 41 and Reset Eng 4502
    41 Kernel Power past 24 hours 4 times and past 7 days 15 times.
    What now?
  4. Hello... Well... if you need to manually shut off the PS because of a OS freeze... those would have been created from you. So you need to isolate those events and determine what was happening before... apps/calls that cause the OS freeze.

    3) can you post a img of your PS label for us.
    4) can you post a screen shot of the most current events too... expanding windows for maximum information in the screen shot.

    A PS Label i would love to know how to get there in order to make a screenshot but i don't know how.
    I'd like to note aswell that all the components that i have except for two diskdrives and the PSU are brand new and have only been 2/3 months old.
  7. Hello... the PS info above is enough... THX
    Well the failure/defect of electronics devices are typically within 30 days... but doesn't mean this is your problem.

    5) Simple Question here "are you shutting off the power to the computer system because of a OS freeze? Or is the system Power shutting off it's self? B /

    I usually wait because it will restart on it's own after getting a BSOD so it is shutting off by itself.
  9. Hello... OK look at all the messages before these kernel 41 happens... for clues... APPs names, driver-file names-messages.
    6) Can you take a digital photo or read the Blue screen messages before they disappear?

    Yes the message is DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
    And i am trying to install the English language on my pc for my system so that you can actually understand the message where i'm making the screenshot of.
    But for some reason it is taking a very long and long time to install.
  11. Hello... If your German and read German... you don't need to do this for me... if you can translate B )

    Typically a "Watch dog" means a communication signal was sent out to a Hardware device... after so many repeat communication attempts, and no reply back from the hardware device, a Watch Dog error will be triggered.

    Remove extra hardware devices/connections to the MB... bare bones system for further tests... some hardware device seen by the OS is not talking back to the driver or OS... it could be a card reader on your case, extra drive, CD/DVD player, Lan/sound/blue tooth chip on the MB, ?... one of them is not connected properly, dead or dying a slow death. B /
  12. put one of your memory dumps from c:\windows\minidump directory onto a server like Microsoft one drive, share the files as public and post a link.

    DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION bugchecks, can be caused to many different problem.
    often you have to provide a kernel memory dump to debug the problem.
    The mini memory dump does not save the proper info.

    I've found the solution the solution to my problem was actually very simple and foolish apperently i had my GPU overclocked to 100% Power Limit and my PSU couldnt handle that.
    I had looked at this before and thought i had stopped it but i just switched Profile number. It wasn't a driver, memstick or the system it self thanks for all of you on helping me out im very gratefull and Sorry for wasting your time.
