I have just handed down my old system to my bro with a few minor hardware changes.
Intel P4 3.2Ghz
1x80GB IDE Segate HD
1x80GB SATA Seagate HD
Sony DVD rom
Now i have set this all up but when he trys to play a game he will get a BSOD error. I am pretty sure i have eliminated any RAM problem because i have tryed my ram in his.. still give BSOD and i have tryed his ram in mine and it works fine.
He thought it might be a video card problem so i got my old GF4 MMX440 out and put it in his system and he is testing it out now.
I have done everything to my knowledge that would normally fix this problem. I cannot tell you the BSOD error because it does not show any writing. The game will freeze and go to a blank blue screen and a reset is required to get past it.
Does anyone have any recommendations? i am begging to think its the 3D card or the motherboard. Or it could even be the HDs.. i am lost.
Would flashing the bios help?
i will post back when my bro has tested it for a little while.
