    NTOSkrnl.exe BSOD (Repeated, Mindumps attached)

    Hello there, Do excuse if the information I give is spotty. Debugging for my betrothed so, second hand info. She's been experiencing repeated BSOD on her laptop. Had her run Bluescreen Viewer, all NTOSkrnl.exe crashes, which from my own experience are not easily solved. Had her send me the...

    BSOD during Fallout New Vegas; Sound Card related?

    Righty ho, will do. Slightly confused about what version to update to. http://www.asus.com/uk/Sound_Cards_and_DigitaltoAnalog_Converters/Xonar_DX/HelpDesk_Download/ (Windows 7 64bit drivers namely) Notice how the most recent driver seems to be Version 7.0.8.1821 (2013/10/03) but that there is...

    BSOD during Fallout New Vegas; Sound Card related?

    Hello there, I recently experienced a BSOD whilst playing Fallout New Vegas. Using BlueScreen View, I've found that it seems to be related to my sound card. The weird thing is, it refers to a C-Media Sound Card Driver, and I don't have a C-Media sound card. My motherboard has an onboard Realtek...

    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION Blue Screen

    Right, well, I got a 512mb SSD to replace it (got a new box too, the old one was tatty, but that's immaterial to bluescreen issues) Little nervous to actually test it now and see if it does the same. I guess I have to though

    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION Blue Screen

    Well, crap :) At least it gives me the excuse to get a SSD for my operating system. So we think that this is the cause of the problems? Would explain why it's still occuring after a reinstall.

    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION Blue Screen

    Right, I installed SP1 and all the updates that came after. Still bluescreened when playing The Sims 2. Ran Chkdsk, making it also check for bad sectors etc. Here is the results; Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. A disk check has been scheduled. Windows will...

    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION Blue Screen

    Derp, sorry I hadn't realised SP1 hadn't been installed. Done now. Also, weirdly it didn't create an event when it ran Chdsk. I distinctly remember running it, but, no event appears in the event viewer. Last night (8 or 9 hrs in total) I ran a bootable hardware testing program on my PC. It...

    CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION Blue Screen

    Hello there, I've been having some problems with repeated bluescreens, freezes and "broken glass" screens, and the wonderful folk here have been very patient over the last year or so trying to work out why. Last night I had enough, so I reinstalled Windows. Nothing fancy installed now, just...

    BSOD on certain games

    Not much I can do about Steam unfortunately. If that is the same source of the crash with Napoleon Total War, I'm a bit snookered. These things only run with Steam in the background. I will try an older driver if it continues, but out of interest, why do you think an older driver (especially...

    BSOD on certain games

    Right, update time. I cleared off my ATI Drivers using their driver cleaner tool and reinstalled the latest, as XCOM Enemy Within was choppier than the Bay of Biscay. This solved the choppy performance and everything has been working fine for about 48 hrs. (I had to turn driver verifier off...

    BSOD on certain games

    Sorry for the late reply. My family came to visit so I was off my PC for a few days. That same "broken glass" effect occurs on Napoleon Total War, but the PC seems to be behaving itself otherwise (plays Skyrim and so forth with no issues, further indicating that the graphics card seems to be...
