Every now and then while playing LoL my PC will just Blue Screen it seems to happen at random before the minions arrive in the middle of the lanes, but has never happened after they have arrived. I started playing in July with no issues, this began happening in January any ideas?

hi cyrus,

did you happen to see what error the bluescreen was giving?

Blue screen errors usually generate a dump file. You can find it under Windows\Minidump. Could you attach the files to a post here on the forums for us to look at?

Generally speaking, BSODs are caused by bad drivers or failing hardware. There are a few things we can help you troubleshoot here, but if you're not too comfortable handling computers, you're probably going to have to have a technician take a look at it.

The most likely cause of this problem is out of date drivers causing a driver crash. Can you submit a dxdiag?

Here is the Dxdiag file. it gives me a error with the video Driver but its the most up to date one i can find as well as the one i have been using since I started playing.

Its not letting me attached the Minidump files giving me an "invalid file" error.

also i don't know if this is relevant or not but the issue has never occured in a custom or Co-op vs Ai game.

It looks like the latest drivers can be fount here: http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=168177

This is assuming your machine is a Dell Dimension 3100 (known on your dxdiag as Dell DV051). The following driver is 4 months newer than the one you currently have; Dell has abandoned updating your video drivers.

Intel, however, last updated your video drivers in 2007. You can also try using this (but it has not been tested and verified by Dell for your system): http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=1764&lang=eng

If problems continue to persist, I recommend running Memtest86+ and seeing if your memory is still stable.

I'll give these a shot but since the problem seems to be so random in occurrence I'll report back if it happens again.
