  1. I followed all the steps and still get the BSOD. I have multiple zips with several BSOD to see if they are all pointing in the same direction. I hope you can help. Let me know what I need to do, and I will do it. So far I cleaned out all Ram slots, used an eraser end of a pencil to clean the gold plates on the ram sticks, cleaned out all fans, CPU, CPU fan, and removed all dust from rig. BSOD still continues to ruin my gaming :( . My Dumb Lists are attached. Please let me know what you find.

    "BSOD still continues to ruin my gaming"... Well, you can guess, this is a problem caused by your NVIDIA video driver

    Well it was not purely from gaming, it would also occur during media player usage (like watching a movie), playing face book games, and just from sitting there and doing nothing.

    Check your hard drive and memory. Go to Computer, right-click on the C drive, select properties, tools, check now. Put a check in both boxes to set a disk check on the next start up. For the memory:
    http://www.memtest.org/
    Download the version 4.20 .iso file and burn it to a CD or DVD. Boot the computer with this disk and let memtest run for at least 7 passes. Any errors are not good... Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?

    The Nvidia video driver is active when ever you are viewing anything on the monitor, not just in gaming. Go here and download the latest driver, use the auto scan:
