Every time I play a video game (currently I play Future Soldier) the video driver crashes (and the game too). This started hapenning just a couple of days ago, *I think* right after the recent update of Windows 8 (but I am not sure). I followed the steps mentioned on sysnative.com (https://www.sysnative.com/forums/showthread.php/68-Blue-Screen-of-Death-(BSOD)-Posting-Instructions-Windows-7-amp-Vista) and attached the files to this thread. Further info on my system: OS: Windows 8 installed (consumer preview, version6.2 build 8250) - not dual boot X86 64 bits Original OS installed on the system was Windows 7 which I upgraded to Windows 8 Hardware is new (5- months) Video Card: NVIDIA Thank you in advance for looking at this.
