My computer hates me/BSOD!
I've got a very unfortunate situation on my hands here. Brand new pc that is giving me the blue screen of death when I try to run a 3-D application (been trying to play Lord of the Rings Online). Other symptoms include 1) when I restart the comp after the BSOD, it freezes when I go to a text field and hit a key, 2) sometimes either the BSOD will flash and pc will restart or will not show but will just restart, and 3) pc will just freeze while playing.
This pc was shipped to me 6/21 and it started acting up on the 22nd. (today being July 1)
So far I've tried updating all of the drivers to the most recent versions. Then I tried searching online for how to troubleshoot the various stop messages (0x000000FE, 0x000000D1, 0x00000050, 0x0000000A, and 0x000000BE). Then I reinstalled operating system, twice. I upped the virtual memory from 2 GB to minimum 3, maximum 4. Lastly I have tried running the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool twice and it appeared to have frozen at 23% on the first pass both times (could not hit F1 or Esc per the prompts on the bottom of the screen).
PC is running Vista 32-bit, AMD x2 4600 AM2 2.4GB, EVGA GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB, 250 GB SATA II 3GB 7200 RPM 8MB, ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Dx NForce 570, 2x GEIL 1024MB DDR2 PC6400 memory.
Thanks for looking!
