Okay, here is a back story for those who actually can help.

Since having the computer, there have been so many issues with blue-screening but I never knew anyone to get support from.

 

Recently there have been more issues than worth turning the computer on for..

 

1. BSOD occurring 80% throughout a casual day of watching videos, livestreams and easy gaming (i.e Runescape, Chronicle, Hearthstone)

2. BSOD occurring 99% chance when playing League of Legends, Counterstrike: Global Offense or World of Warcraft

3. BSOD occurring 90% chance when editing with Sony Vegas, Photoshop, 3DS Max, Maya etc.

 

Now I sent all of my Minidump files to a Windows Expert who reported back to me that it was 100% my graphics card, which was rather upsetting as it costs the most.

It also sucks that my computer is now out of warranty so I can't get it replaced. (I don't think so anyway.)

 

Currently my GPU is at 82*C and all I have open it Google Chrome, Skype and Spotify, when I try to play games it shoots up to 95*C with 70-80 fan speed.

 

Something is seriously wrong and I have no idea what to do..

 

If you want to see my Minidumps, feel free to request them.

 

Thanks for the help!
