BSOD while playing games

HP Recommended
Omen by HP 15 - ax250tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Omen by HP 15-ax250tx laptop purchased less than 3 years ago.  For last few months (can't recall exactly since when), I have been facing the issue of blue screen.  Whenever I play any game (Minecraft, CS:GO), the system crashes and a Blue Screen appears.  Initially, it used to happen rarely but it's frequency has suddenly increased now.  It's now also happening when I manually run a

Macwarebyte scan.  The system had come with McAfee antivirus pre-installed but at last renewal date, I changed to Malwarebyte Premium.  Could that be the cause.  Or, could Zoom or Skype be the cause which I installed in last 3/4 months.  I had also installed the latest update of Windows 10 recently but that I have removed and the problem still continues.  Or could it be problem with RAM or Graphics card or some other hardware.  I downloaded and ran the HP PC Hardware Diagnostic tool - both fast and extended tests - but it is not showing any hardware issue, except battery test where it shows battery as "very weak".  Can a weak battery lead to BSOD even if I am always using the laptop with main power supply only?  HP service center asks for Laptop to be submitted for 3/4 days just to diagnose the problem and a process that will take almost 15 days, apart from exorbitant cost, for resolution of the problem.  Can someone please help.

@Vijain_59 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are getting BSOD while playing the games.


Is it happening with a particular game or all games?



I understand the computer gets a blue screen error, However, since you haven’t captured the error code or message, 

I would request you to follow the below steps to capture and reply back with the error message/code to identify the issue and find a permanent fix: 

  • In Windows, search for and open View advanced system settings. 

  • In the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. 

  • Under System Failure, remove the check mark next to automatically restart, and then click OK. 

  • Restart the computer to apply the change. 

  • The computer no longer restarts automatically when a blue screen error occurs.

​​Please reply back with the error code as the issue is code specific and it would be rather easier to provide an accurate solution using the same.
