Hello, I recently upgraded from my 9800gtx+ to a ASUS EAH5850. I tried running BF2 last night but about 5 minutes into the game I started getting flickering, next thin I knew I had a blue screen of death. I tried other games such as starcraft and TF2. They both do the same thing or just crash back to the desktop.
I tried moving my RAM around my mobo to see if that would fix anything but it didn't work. I've reinstalled all of my drivers maybe three times now and nothings worked.
On one of the screens I've gotten PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and STOP:0x00000
and sometimes I get a blue screen immediately after restarting. After that the computer boots up, windows tells me it has failed to boot and asks me what I want to do. No matter what option I choose it shuts off immediately after. Eventually I can get past it and it will boot up like normal.
So far I've been able to stop the blue screens, but now the games just crash a few minutes later instead.
Is there any way to fix this? Or is there at least a way to find out whats causing this?
It's good to hear it is most likely a driver issue. I checked the device manager to make sure and everything was fine, although I remembered I had 2 HID's disabled from back in the day while trying to play Prototype. I turned them back on but I have no idea if that could have helped.
The power connectors are in (even though it was a pain to get them in because of the cards length) I double checked to make sure the card was well seated too.
I'm going to check the minidmp folder for some of the strings
Don't know about "nysf". Are you sure it is "nysf" and not "ntsf" the name of a common file system formatting? This could be consistent with HD issues. Are the two HD that were disabled formatted differently than what I assume is the other one that is working with your operating system on it?
This MS article might provide some helpful background if the above is the issue:
