Hey guys, hope some techies could shed some light on my current situation. As of today- I've been faced with blue screens when playing on steam games, I know it's not an issue with overheating, as I've been checking the hardware monitor temps in the bios straight after system failure. As far as I know, my hardware drivers are up to scratch and my rig more than meets the requirements to play these games, i.e. left 4 dead 2. Saying that this rig is very new, it's a bit of a heart break to have it fail on me.
P.S. Not really sure what category this question fits under0 so please excuse any incompetencies . Also, how do I add in my signature? Don't really know why it hasn't been displayed- I thought clicking "Submit" in the forum options would cut it- obviously not. ;0
Im going through the same thing right now, I just built a gaming system used a Radeon HD 6970 AMD 6100 Six Core Asus Motherboard Crucial 16GB, I don't think it is the build, I confirmed each component was a listed compatible. Windows 7 is stable and I burned in for 5 days before installing steam. Updated the Bios, and installed the factory drivers and updated them as well. I am now beginning to disassemble the system driver by driver and piece by piece, if anyone has a clue on why steam games blue screen once the obvious things are done, please chime in. Cause this IS heartbreaking.
Hey, I am getting blue screens as well...my desk/top is my gaming computer...and it has happened to me at least 3 times today. That being said, my work computer is getting blue screens as well....and there I have no Steam....I think it is a wonderful MS thing,
