  1. I recently installed Counter Strike: GO from steam.The game installed fine but when it loaded up I got the blue screen. I've tried it a few times now and still get BS. From memory this has happend to other games aswell.
    I checked on 'CanIRunIt' and I have all the requirements to run the game.

    Just wondering if anyone knows why it happend,

    Im on windows 7 laptop.

    Blue Screens produce minidumps. Go to C:\windows\minidump. Select all the .dmp files and right-click sending these files to a compressed(zipped)folder. Upload this folder as a file here. The minidumps will help us find out what is wrong or causing the Blue Screens

    There is only 1 .dmp file and when I try to Zip I get an error 'File not found or no read permission'.'

    Make sure you have all the Windows Updates applied, including all Optional updates
