Blue screen while playing games

Hi

Im having an issue lately, its only been around for 2 weeks. Ive been getting blue screen and i checked my temps, they are fine. So are my drivers. I do have 2 power strips running to my pc, could this be a problem? if so, how come it wasnt a problem 4 months ago and only starting now?

Hope you can help!

  1. What are full system specs? What's the code you get when the BSOD happens?

    Hi Satan-IR

    These are my specs:

    Intel i7-4790k @ 4.00GHz
    8 GB RAM
    GTX 970
    250 SSD

    Hope thats what u need.

    The code im getting is "hal.dl"l which i read was about something with my harddrive.. but i dont get blue screen when i play League of Legends or using Adobe programs nor any other for that matter. Only CS:GO, PUBG & Fortnite.

  3. Well I means specs like motherboard, VGA and PSU brand and model.

    hal.dll is Windows component. Many things might drive Windows components and services to fault including driver conflicts.

    What makes you think it's HDD related. Assuming you have HDDs as well or is it just the SSD?

    If the BSODs happen under certain apps/games and not under others it makes hardware issue a little less likely.

    To make sure you can run HD Tune portable or HD Sentinel and check HDD/SSD health in the S.M.A.R.T tab. Drive problems can in theory cause BSODs but when it happen only during certain games it can be driver conflict, GPU or PSU issues.

    What is the brand model of PSU?

    Also you can enable small memory dumps and upload the crash dump files (around 300KB) so maybe we can narrow it down what's causing the BSOD.

    It's something i read, it could be harddrive, but now i understand its windows components..

    Update: I just crashed again with another BSoD. This time it said "WHEA UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR"..

    My PSU is an 'Cooler Master RS-700 acab d3, 700 W'

    Could you send me a link or a guide for small memory dumps? Im not really sure how to do that.

  5. That's not a really good PSU. I think it's not even 80 Plus certified.

    What is your OS? You can google enable crash dump in win 7 or win 10.

  6. Hmm, never knew, but had it for almost 2 years, how come this problem accur now? You think the PSU is getting 'old'?

    Im running windows 10.

    Do you think the overall experience is better with a bigger PSU?
