  1. Hi there
    I have been experiencing BSOD's for over a month now and they only occur when I play games and it is beginning to frustrate me so I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out :)

    I only have 2 minidumps available as I recently tried re-installing the OS but the other BSOD's had the same error : UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP , STOP 0x0000007F

    Thankyou :)

    Have you tried updating your video card drivers?

    Try removing the video drivers completely and re-installing them... The minidumps show that the ATI driver is at fault
