Games stop working - crash to desktop

ok ive been having the problem of games crashing to desktop for a while now. i have recently installed windows 7 to see if it was a software issue (clean formatting of my HD ect to see if that helped) no luck there. I had the CTD problems in XP also.

tried other Ram from a friends computer which didnt help.

the games in question are:

Portal 2
Magicka
Assassins Creed Brotherhood
The Last Remnant
Dead Space 2

this is magicka's error log from when it crashed:

previously in XP i suffered from a few BSOD's straight from the games. the 3 error codes i recieved were

Attempt to execute non-executable memory
NTFS.sys - page fault in non paged area
Driver IRQL not less or equal

as yet i havent BSOD in windows 7 though.

finally a DXdiag in the hope it helps.

More about games stop working crash desktop
  1. have you ran chkdsk recently. if your games arnt legit are you sure there clean?
    is the system eventlog showing any hardware errors.
    as pagefile violations and not less than errors tend to be down to bad drivers.

    make sure you install everything under admin privs especially drivers. make sure all your motherboard drivers installed properly especially the cpu info 1 (you may need to run it in vista compatability mode to get this 1 to install propperly)
  2. chkdsk doesnt seem to run for me. just a cmd box for a second or 2 then disappears.

    in the event viewer i have a few errors showing up.

    there are other errors there but none seem to be linked to my CTD problem at least as far as i can tell.
  3. I have had similar BSOD screens with my overclocking
    values were wrong. If overclockig try setting everything
    to default and playing some of those games and see if you still have issue. As for Portal 2, Skidrow has a patch up to fix some of the horrible bugs that were released with it ;) Hope this helps.
  4. as far as im aware, nothing on my computer should be overclocked but i will check with the friend that built it for me as soon as i can.

    i did try the portal 2 patch.... on a side note, this is the 2nd time hes fixed a steam game when the dev's take a long time to sort it.

    if its any use i could try running the other games see if it narrows down what my problem is via the error log..
  5. dont run chkdsk from the run prompt run it from inside the cmd prompt
    start/allprogramms/accessories right click on cmd and select run as administrator.

    when the cmd opens type chkdsk /f

    1s done reinstall the games if they dont work.
    also you may want to update your gfx/audio and system drivers
  6. On your post it looks as though you may be also
    having issues with .netframework. Try uninstalling and reinstalling
    with the most recent .netframework
  7. ran chkdsk on reboot, it closed faster than i could see if it mentioned any problems.

    updated all drivers.
    reinstalled games.
    updated to .netframework 4.

    the games still CTD :(
  8. an XML view of the latest error incase it helps

  9. after searching around on google, i saw a possible solution that says the 0xc0000005 error code can be caused by the programs in question not being allowed by the windows DEP..... when trying to add portal 2 to the exceptions list earlier it just said it cant be added and it must be run with the DEP enabled for it... could this be my issue?
  10. unlikley as i have portal 2 and it works perfectly. without adjusting any of that. in fact i have played all the games you have listed (apart from reminant)with no issues.

    u did run the a games as admin? not doing so can cause basic crashes that have no crash number...
  11. running as admin didnt help. there seems to be a million and 1 posible solutions to the error code and the nvd3dum.dll file but i cant seem to find 1 that corrolates to both.

    thanks for the help so far :)
  12. he ran chkdisk m8

    More Information

    ran chkdsk on reboot, it closed faster than i could see if it mentioned any problems.

    updated all drivers.
    reinstalled games.
    updated to .netframework 4.

    the games still CTD

    im really baffled as to why he's having so many issues. im starting to think its malware or a hardware fault myself. but without actually looking at the machine im stumped.
  13. will work through that list of stuff to try tomorrow morning.

    i did get chkdsk to run as administrator. it ran on reboot but it closed without showing me if there is any problems after it completed. unless it saves a log somewhere?

    before i switched to windows 7, on XP memtest did cause me to BSOD, but as mentioned in the 1st post, i have tried other RAM without it solving anything.

    my games crash after starting up, longest ive got to play was about 10 min on portal 2. shortest, maybe a minute.

    i do have to right click things to run as admin, is there a way to make sure im always admin? its a home comp and theres only really me using it so it wouldnt cause a problem.

    those are the HW monitor results from running furmark. if you need any other information let me know.

    im not sure where to find the idle and max load numbers unless its in there somewhere
  16. you definatly have some failing hardware. and its motherboard related. either the cpu the memory or the motherboard itself.

    go into bios and load the optimized defaults.
    make sure your memory is running at the rite speed, latencies and voltage.
    they should be running at 1.8-2.2v depending on make and model

    check your cpu and turn off auto and set it to normal or 200. make sure your voltage is between 1.35 and 1.45 the lower the better but dont adjust it yet.

    check for hpet (high precision event timer) and make sure it matches your o.s 32 for 32bit 64 for 64bit.

    save and reboot.
    run prime 95 again
  17. the motherboard is brand new, the last 1 died recently. so its a possibility it took the processor with it i suppose.

    i dont have the box for my RAM any more, any idea how to check what it should be running at?

    As for the RAM being the problem, it runs well in a friends PC and his doesnt make a difference to my problems. should be safe to rule that out pretty much from that right?

    you dont think with the NVD3Dum.dll being listed as 1 of the errors it could be the graphics card? although the games do look nice for the few minutes i get to play them :P
  18. loaded optimised defaults, Ram is running at 1.9V when it should be 1.8, couldnt find a bios page to change that. didnt see anything about latancies or speed either.

    the HPET was wrong so i fixed that.

    CPU voltage is set at 1.4V

    couldnt see what you meant by "
    check your cpu and turn off auto and set it to normal or 200"

    HW monitor Running at the same time.
  20. if its a gigabyte board then press control f1 in bios it will open up the hidden M.I.T menu.

    your ram voltage of 1.9 will have no adverse effects other than heat 1s you open the hidden menu you will probably see all the latency settings and voltage controls.
    you may want to check the settings of the ram on the box then set it that way in the M.I.T... did you download the cpu timer fix from amd? its called the amd dual core opromizer.
  21. Fount the MIT menu, as far as i can tell with a quick google search its set up ok for my RAM.

    http://www.adamcarpenter.co.uk/corsair-xms2-dhx-4gb-2x2gb-ddr2-sdram-800mhz-pc2-6400-240-pin-dimm-1.html?___store=default

    thats my RAM
  22. Almost sounds like the mobo is borked. The one error... NV.... is nvidia related. I'd dig up the earliest driver for your opsys/card combo and try it. The netframework thing. go to windows update and if nothing there check microsoft site til you find it and run the patches. You can also try running 1 stick of memory in different slots.
  23. as said. the motherboard is brand new... sealed from the shop shelf about a week ago. the crashing problems existed before then also. so i am certain that isnt the problem.

    I have also tried other RAM which didnt help. mine ran flawlessly in a friends computer and his didnt solve my problems so its not that either.

    I will try a google search later for which is the most stable graphics driver for the 8800GT with windows 7 64... and hope that helps.

    I can see why the thoughts are directed at the motherboard though, with both graphical and processor errors comming up thats the only thing linking them both.

    I downloaded the dual core optimizer, installed it but not been able to find where it installed to... are there any settings with that i need to change? if not it didnt help.
  24. did you try ms-update ? and did you seek netframework or did you just blow that off ? try swapping hd ?
  25. windows says its up to date. installed every version of .netframework. and i dont have a HD i can try swapping with.

    tried what are supposed to be the most stable graphics drivers and they didnt help either.
  26. the dual core optimizer just works when its installed. its a fire and forget program.
    there are no settings for it. it will just increase stability.

    all i can suggest now is to check your hardware. remove all ram using 1 stick at a time run prime 95 and see which 1 if any are causing the problems.
  27. ok ill give that a go
  28. sorry been busy for the last few days but i just had the mindset to take a look at my processor incase there was any visible dammage ect... and i noticed there is none of the thermal paste left... is there a possibility even a slight 1 of that being the cause of my issues?
  29. erm!!! yes!!!...
    dont use your pc without having replaced the tim. or you will be saying bye bye to it.
  30. the thermal paste seems to have done the job atm. just played portal for about an hour and a half with no issues. thanks all :)
  31. I didn't get to read all of these, but have you run memtest? It may be a memory problem.

    http://www.memtest.org/
  32. seems like he managed to find and fix is problem
  33. maybe by Magicka for example
    i have on steam
    i go to the map

    Program files than Steam
    Steamapps than Common
    Magicka than Dependencies map

    In that map there is a exe.file
    xnafx31_redist that is that you must instal for playing magicka

    look at the maps where it hides look for this and install this file
    xnafx31_redist it is in the game map Magicka

    i hoop it works
    Bye :hello:
