So I've had this problem for quite some time now, but haven't cared a whole lot to address it because I've been using my laptop for gaming instead. Whenever I play a game (not web based, I mean things like BF2, WoW, TF2, and now Civ5) I get a BSOD that mentions something like dxgmms1.sys. I believe that the last time I looked into this issue I read that it was related to DirectX and I think I uninstalled/reinstalled both DirectX & my video drivers, which hasn't worked. So now I'm hoping that someone would care to help me out a bit with this.

System Specs:

Gigabyte MA770-UD3 v1.0
AMD Phenom II X4 955 (oc'd to 3.7GHz)
4GB DDR2 1066MHZ OCZ
Two Seagate Barracudas, main 1TB and a 500GB
EVGA GeForce GTS 250 Superclocked
Windows 7 Ultimate x64


Thanks :lol:

Exact error message...and circumstances when it appears...would be helpful.

If it only occurs when stressing the video card, that pretty much points to the video card drivers, IMO.

Oddly enough, the BSOD's have stopped happening after I rolled back my video drivers. I do have a problem with the game itself still crashing though, which doesn't seem to happen at any particular time. I'll give more detailed information about the crash when I'm home. At work right now.

Could be faulty gfx, could be incompatibility with other programs...could be an unstable OC. How are your temps on gfx and cpu. I'd recommend you un OC for diagnostics.

Download BlueScreenView:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all of the content, and paste it into your next reply

I'd post them but apparently they're all gone. Minidump folder is empty, which is especially bad since I don't BSOD from it anymore. Just crash.

Haven't played Civ for a few days. I however have started playing Duke Nukem. I left it at the pause screen for about an hour and came back with a BSOD with: 0x00000124 saying the system encountered an uncorrectable hardware error.
