Re: Bsod- Not sure whats causing it
I have vista x64 and far cry 2 gave me nothing but problems which the only solution I could find was memory leak issues. I downloaded an update that was released from msoft the very next day thinking maybe it would solve the issue but didnt.
far cry 2 would force my computer to restart, I would be in the middle of the game and like the blink of an eye my pc was restarting.. Not only this, but often enough would give me bsod's with memory stop codes, 2-3 different codes but all relating to this infamous memory leak problem.
I haven't look up anything on waw other than the fact that I can't get the game to run because of some gfx code problem. I would look into this though.. because it's likely not your ram, and likely the game you're playing.
Left 4 dead crashes to my desktop... I never had a problem with guild wars until I downloaded 180.48 drivers and now crashes to desktop.. Also I know crysis + exp have given people problems with bsod's relating to memory..
I don't think it's bad hardware, i think it's bad software, or software conflicts, etc.
**edit: I also read that far cry 2 didn't "like" overclocked hardware, but that just sounds like a load of crap. Although I haven't tested it, perhaps it's something on your plate to try to resolve your issue.
