Problem
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As previously stated the problem that currently occurs is that on certain games i am not able to load successfully without a BSOD being displayed and my machine restarting. When i first booted the machine, with a fresh install of Windows,
latest Nvidia Drivers etc. I was able to startup Bioshock, CoD4 and UT3 perfectly and run them on max settings etc for around 4 hours each. I monitored my CPU / GPU temps of which seemed to be fine.

However after restarting my machine after being on for the first 10 Hours, i tried to load the above games again and this is when BSOD started to come into affect.

UT3 i can load, get to the Intel dual Core video and then BSOD occurs and restart occurs

Bioshock has a BSOD as soon as i execute the .exe

CoD4 loads to main menu, once i select a mission, loading process occurs with background video, once loaded and i press any key. BSOD occurs and system restarts.

I am able to run the system perfectly on other games, such as CnC3, NFS Pro Street, Virtua Tennis even. Without any BSOD.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
What Ive Tried
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ive tried the solutions found in a similar thread, this includes throughouly uninstalling, and installing new / old / beta drivers but no luck.

Mem testing OCZ RAM (No errors), plus using one stick at a time in differnet slots etc (No Luck).

Ive disabled sound on MOBO, Still no Joy.

Ive made sure voltages for RAM are sufficent up to 2.2v (Which is what the warrenty goes up to) No Luck

reseated the CPU, reapplied Artic Silver 5 etc resat Heatsink/FAN. No Luck.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
????
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What i dont understand is that for the first boot i was able to play the above games no BSOD. Additionally when i first got the BSOD for unreal tournament 3, i uninstalled, reinstalled and was able to play /startup perefectly for 2 hours. Until i restarted machine again and BSOD occured upon start up after the Dual Core Video. (Same applies to CoD4 and Bioshock).

NOW - even if i reinstall etc, i still get BSOD. ( I shall post the error codes soon of the BSOD today, may help to resolve the issue).

I can stress the system pretty much by general use etc without no errors, just loading these 3 games that BSOD occurs.

Im really stuck and fustrated, as everything is brand new! (except my hard drives, of which i made sure i formatted accordingly before the system build.

Any Help would be much appreicated ill post the error codes of BSOD and event's when i get back today.

Try using RivaTuner, run GPU fan @100% before launching the game. I had a similar problem running Crysis with two 8800GT's. UT3 ran fine, but Crysis overheated the card(s), causing the game to crash about 8 minutes in. I installed rivatuner and immediately put the fan speed to 100% for both cards. The problem went away. Later on I set up a fanspeed program within RivaTuner to dynamically adjust fan speed in response to GPU core temperature changes.

The problem occurs on start up, of UT2003,Bioshock and Cod4 after loading the level.

i can run other games such as Cnc3, Crysis etc without any errors occuring. Just the above games which cause BSOD.

Ram has passed mem test etc, i really dont know what it could be. Ive reinstalled Drivers etc still no luck. as ive already said, when i first install the games they ran fine, however after the first reboot of them being installed BSOD occurs all the time when i boot them up.


I dont know if temp is a problem as my GPU is 68-70 C. CPU is 27-30

I did feel my ram after a BSOD occured and they felt hot, but this is pretty normal.

Im thinkin its a driver error of sum sort but i do not know at all. I just got BSOD again heres the even ID error report
