I notice that if I play certain games the game would then freeze after a while (15-45min). It would make this buzzing sound then freeze.
First I thought it's something with the game, but experiencing this with a few other games makes me believe the problem is my pc. Probably my graphic card.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4850 X2
Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.100618-1621)
Power Supply: Be Quiet Dark Power Pro P7-PRO-850w
My OS runs on a SSD Drive and I have 3 data drives running in RAID5.
I've updated the drivers, run memtest, chkdsk.
I think it has something to do with PFN_LIST_CORRUPT rather VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT. I've really updated every components I could find and I still have this problem.
I've found this but using the methods there didn't solve my problem.
Yeah. For testing the Video Card I used FurMark and monitoring the other components also seem ok. It's unlikely that it is a heat issue because I can play certain games without a problem.
I'd say it's either a driver not compatible with Win7 or some components might be defect which I have my doubts because like I said only for certain games the BSOD would show up. Less occasionally but the BSOD shows up in desktop mode too.
Most recently I've been playing Fallout NV for a few weeks now and never has it genereated a BSOD. But yesterday it did. Here's the crash dump file.
Typically caused by drivers passing bad memory descriptor lists (ie: calling
MmUnlockPages twice with the same list, etc). If a kernel debugger is
available get the stack trace.
Arg1: 0000000000000099, A PTE or PFN is corrupt
Arg2: 000000000003d92b, page frame number
Arg3: 0000000000000002, current page state
Arg4: 000000000003d920, 0
