  1. Hi,
    I'm getting BSODs when playing Oblivion and occassionally durring other times. They are fairly unpredictable, but I can reproduce consistently in Oblivion.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    All your minidumps crash with a bugcheck of D1.


    The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

    Check your system has all the latest drivers.

    Also check your system temperatures and that your psu is putting out enough power for your system.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Thanks Howard.

    I believe that my processor is overheating. If so, could this be the cause of the repetiton of this BSOD error? Or, if it was an overheating processor, would the errors be randomized?

    Yes. Overheating would cause random bsod`s.

    Regards Howard :)
