I bought my PC a couple of years ago, pretty much no problems until recently and i'm having trouble figuring out exactly what is going on... hoping someone here can help!
I am getting random BSODS whilst playing Battlefield 3, and I mean random - I can be playing for hours and have nothing happen. Then somedays it will happen 3 or 4 times within an hour of each other, nothing in game seems to be a trigger, i can be in the action, on my own or at the post game summary screen and it happens.
I have turned the graphics settings down (frame rate is fine at high settings anyway) and manually cranked up the gpu fan to aid cooling, drivers are up to date etc. I have run a memory test with no errors. No help.
The error message i get is APC_INDEX_MISMATCH..... this is the mini dump summary:
