    I have no idea what the problem is but I always tell people to go clean their fans regardless.

    It usually happens when I first boot up the computer and play games a few rounds until it restarts. After the first crash it has no problem throughout the day

          Answer this

          Think hard if you've done anything recently. Did you reinstall Windows recently? Are there any new parts you installed recently? Look at temperatures and try running it without the graphics card if your CPU has a GPU.

          I've been through random BSODs and some of these were the cause.

      Sounds like overheating, what does [current popular temperature probe software] say?

      check your temps
      check if CPU has enough paste on it if its temps are abnormal

      These seem like a possible cause because I don't have any temperature check software installed to check my PC temp

        Remove OC settings or set to default.
        Temp
        Failing Hard Drive
        Failing RAM

        Check in that order.

    What's caused BSODs for me over the past 25 years:
    >Bad hard drive
    >Bad GPU
    >Sketchy software that fricks around with drivers (example: Motioninjoy's PS3 controller software)
    >Installing outdated, un-updated Windows off a USB with a new CPU

    Have you recently updated your graphics drivers? If yes, the new drivers may be fricking things up, try doing a full DDU uninstall of your drivers and roll back to an older version. If you haven't recently updated drivers, or installed any other sketchy software, you maybe be having a hardware failure and might need to replace RAM or worse, your GPU.

    Possible causes

    >drivers
    >hardware failing
    >heat

    Backup everything and install a GNU Linux distribution like Ubuntu so you can discard the first possible cause.

    There should be an error code, jot it down and google it. My first thought is overheating but it could be something totally different depending on what the error code indicates
