Blue Screen Hardware Error/malfunction

Post by aware on Mon Apr 04, 2011 12:09 pm

Hey,

I've just recently started getting bluescreen messages.

It only seems to occur when I'm playing games, well BattleField Bad Company 2, specifically.

I thought it was the Graphics Card Initally, because it used to get uncontrollably hot... I've now just installed a new GTX 560 card,

and unfortunately the problem still occurs. Mid way through a game it will bluescreen.

I saw a Thread made by someone else who seemed to have a similar problem, and it was honed down to the RAM.

I'm just a bit lost because it seems to have started without cause.

Please help :3

Andy

Just went on to Battlefield to see if it would happen again.

didn't seem to happen as quick: But I'm still at a loose end, concidered re-installing windows, didn't know if that would help.

Last resort if I can help it.

Bumpidge,

Anyone had any problems like this before?

Thinks its probaby fairly common Bluescreen to get, just don't know how to diagnose it.

Hello,

Most probably hardware compatibility issue.

Try and see if this MS hotfix fixes it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/952681

Hey ya,

Thanks for the help, I'm running Windows 7 Professional, would that hot fix still be applicable? It states its for Windows 2008 and Vista, but sometimes these things crossover.

The problems occured before and after the new graphics card and the same error occurs for both... just as it states PCI issues in the hot fix.

I've run a RAM test 'MemTest86' ver 4.0 and ver 3.5 ran it 6 times, all passed.

If its good for Windows 7 I'll definitely do it.

Thanks again.

Andy

Well!

Oddly enough the problem, at least in the short term, has abaited...

Un installed and re-installed the game where the issue was happening and it seems to have stablised.

Before that I ran a heavy Render through 3D Studio Max to put the MB and CPU through their paces and they seemed fine.

Hell of a thing... Touch Wood, I hope its stopped now.
