Sort not the first pc which reacts the same way. Variety of games but one of the few great examples Dota 2 and Assassins Creed series. When I do alt-tab and say work , listen to music then don't turn off pc for around 48 hours with one of the example games minimized(alt-tabbed). At some point I am pretty certain you will get BSOD. I don't usually encounter bsod since I run verifier with all drivers on periodically - delete offending applications such as Daemon Tools(never use that).

And games never produce bsod during the playing.

Is there anyway to keep games minimized for long periods? Sort of bad habit. Just lost piece of dissertation work - great.

I suspect it has to do with extensive multi threading as I usually have around 20 applications running and a game minimized.

  • This problem is unique to your system. So lets start with the basics. Are you running all current device and intel chipset drivers?

  • Yes of course. If anyone could test it I am sure it is repeatable on other system. My laptop behaves the same yet configurations are quite different. Last PC BSOD was 3 months ago. Since then I think it was restarted automatically 3 times by unforgiving windows update.

  • Its not repeatable. Unless you post the information I requested I cannot help you. This is a driver problem

    upload the dmp file, not this useless text Nov 26 '13 at 4:43
  • @magicandre1981 slow down a little. 1. How do I upload dmp file to the resource which only accepts images? 2. How do I check if I run all current device and intel chipset drivers?

Update the BIOS of your ASUS P8Z77-V LX from Version 1603

BiosVersion = 1603
BiosReleaseDate = 01/07/2013
BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
BaseBoardProduct = P8Z77-V LX

to 2204 which has memory fixes. Maybe it also fixes your issue. Also make sure your Intel i7-3770K doesn't overheat.
