Asus M5A97LE R2.0 UEFI mobo blue screen error

So, i disabled secured boot and also the digital driver signature and then installed win7 ultimate 64bit. After installing all drivers and everything. I started to play The Division, it ran ok for a while after that it gave a blue screen, dumped some files and took a restart. It happened twice after that.Any idea as to what the problem is? Should i turn on the secure boot as well as the digital driver signature?

  1. Does the bluescreen only happen while gaming? If so then i'd look to your graphics drivers.

  2. unfortunately yes.. sorry for late reply. During gaming only I get blue screen error. And I think there is some problem with too much memory consumption.. 60% of physical memory is being used while playing division.. It then becomes 70%. That leaves not much for the other OS stuffs. All this due to bad graphics driver? Can u recommend a stable driver for R9 290x sapphire?

    Well first, i'd like to know what version graphics driver you have installed. Do you know how to check?
    Also, if you suspect the memory you can use a memory check tool:

    You'll have to create a bootable media either on disc or flash drive.
    You also could use the built in memory test for windows, but it's not the best.

  5. My apologies. I reread your post. Did the bluescreen issue happen prior to disabling secure boot and digital driver signature?

  6. yes.. previously i was using win10.. thats one excuse of an OS. So i needed to disable the secure boot and also digital driver signature to install win7. I havent turned them both back on. Cuz I am not sure whether i will be able to boot back into win7 once I do. I am not sure

  7. I am sorry I should have posted this before. My graphics card is Sapphire R9 290x trix -OC. Motherboard is what I posted above, its UEFI Mobo. Processor is fx8350, 8gb ram kingston hyperx

    The latest driver from the SAPHIRE website states 17.7.1 for the 4gb model:

    I would first uninstall the existing driver from control panel, restart the computer then install the latest version offered on the abovce manufacturer's website.

  11. Never use GeForce Experience or a 3rd party driver update tool from AMD. Always get your drivers from the manufacturer's website, not AMD or Nvidia unless you have a reference card.
