First of all I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. =]
I am in need of some assistance. I recently built a computer and am having stability issues with Windows 7. I am having a problem with games crashing to desktop and freezing randomly on my system. I have gone through the following tests:
Three Different video cards, AMD and Nvidia, all crashed at some point.
Ran Memtest 86 + (the most up-to-date version) off a CD and after 12 hours no errors.
Driver swept and installed every driver possible with no success. Games crash anywhere from 30 seconds in to one hour gaming.
DXDIAG comes back with no errors.
Removed all overclocks.
The games I play are BF:BC2 , MW2, Dirt 2 and other codemaster racing games.
Sometimes it will simply crash with no message. Other times it will give me a "program has stopped responding " pop up with different error codes. The errors sometimes have nvidia display driver crash, other times it will say c000005 or something like that =\
Sorry for the lack of info. I'm at work on an iPhone haha. Any tips are appreciated.
I thought I'd update this old thread. I finally found the problem. One of my four sticks of ram wasn't working properly. I tested each individually and one did no post. Corsair sent me a new kit and tada, no crashes. Thanks for all your help guys.
