crashing game..

Q: crashing game..

ok i play a number of games on my PC.
i list them in order of which i play most...
Americas army
Battlefield 2(it seems to crash more on this game)
GTA san andreas
Starcraft
my problem is,my computer crashes at random times when playing.i get the screetch of death and everything freezes up. i get this black and white static crap on my screen as well as the screetching that drives me nuts.as far as i can remember it started happening after i installed my audigy 2 value sound card (not positive).i thought that it may have been an issue with power supply so i got a 420W instead of my 300W.same thing happens tho.it was happening when i had my old vid card as well(9200 se ATI).now i have a 9800 pro xt 256MB.another thing i think it may be is overheating? i have factory fans in it from when i bought it.although i always check to see if hot air is coming out when it crashes and half the time it pretty cool.hmmm i think thats all.anything other info u need ask.

Preferred Solution: crashing game..

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:haveing problems playing a game with out it either randomlly crashing the game...

first of all is this limited to this game alone?do other games run fine?check for any overheating signs,install the latest drivers for your video card and your mobo,direct x and any other update.see if you meet the minimum requirements for the game.(this was just the official response you would get from a techie..so bear with me)

if this is happening in this game only and not in any other and your pc isnt overheating and meeting the minimum requirements,then there is a good chance its an issue with your optical drive,try a combo drive if you've got any around.its an incompatibility issue with some of the games.good luck

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't
( I would start the launcher, log onto the game and the server, go into the character screen, then cntrl + alt + delete into task manager and right click the process and set the priority to high then go back into the game)

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I sort of have an idea why my games crash, but not entirely sure.

And when I say games crash, I mean EVERY game I've played on my new laptop has crashed at one point or another randomly.

Manufacturer: ASUS - A8JP Notebook
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 (2.00 GHz)
Memory: DDR2 200-Pin Notebook Memory (1 GB)
Hard Drive: 5400 RPM (120GB - 65 & 45 GB Partitions)
Video Card: ATi Mobility Radeon X1700 (256 MB)
Sound Card: SoundMAX Integrated HD Audio
Operating System: Windows XP - Media Center Edition

Anyways, ATi decided to be retarded and release the X1700 Radeon, only to tell users that it is not developing any drivers or updates for it.

So, using the OEM driver from ASUS does not help and modded driver (while improving performance) still give me crashes.

Any ideas? Or is this problem way too broad as I fear it is.

A:Game keeps crashing!

Could you possibly post some more info on your system :

Which version of Win ? How much Ram ? What CPU ? What version of Direct X - you can check most of this if you :

Start > Run and type DXDIAG then look at the interface that appears.

Are you shutting down all non essential apps before starting these games as other things like Anti Virus progs will hog your resources. Especially as onboard graphics is using your system ram to function.

Its also worth considering that with such intense games you are likely to need a dedicated graphics card.

Hello, I made another forum here that was for games crashing. I was told to post my BSOD dump and system health report so here it is.

Bit of back story is that when I play any pc game they crash. Only the game crashes, no BSOD or anything, it will just freeze then say the game isn't working and I will have to close it.

In the last 4 days i have been experiencing crashes while playing MTW2 whilst on the battlemap.

It started with the screen flipping back to desktop, as though ALT TAB had been pressed, no error messages,
i just clicked the MTW2 icon on the side bar and returned to the game.
Next the above mentioned behaviour started being accompanied by a message saying
"MM driver has stopped working" - since yesterday this message has stopped appearing.

Last 2 days, whilst on the battle screen MTW2 just crashes with the Win 7 message box that says
this program has stopped working. It crashes all the time know whilst playing, but not immediatly,
about after 15 - 20 minuetes on the battle map.

Recently on boot up a box entitled "AML device install" would briefly appear after windows has loaded,
i have disabled this in MSCONFIG - following web site advice.
Power cable from wall socket to PSU blew, never had this before, simply replaced it. It was about 5 years old.

A:Game crashing

Have you actually tried to reinstall the game?

(And for the sake of clarification, with MTW2 you refer to Medieval: Total War 2?)

And if your power cable blows up, that's pretty bad. No idea what could cause that, if it's just a cable without anything else. But your PSU, 520W, isn't too much.

Keep these things in mind;

PSU usually gives less power than in the description. And then, if it's old, your capacitors are getting worn out and your computer will get lot less power than it's supposed to.

However, if your computer wouldn't get enough power, it would crash completely and you'd get constantly overheating issues. But just in case, do you have anything to check your temperatures with?

1) Right-click on your desktop and select Properties.
2) Click the Settings tab.
3) Set your screen area to 800x600.

When I first got the "Sims 3" game every time I tried to play it, it would crash. Later I learned that I didn't have enough RAM and that I needed to upgrade my graphics card. I took my computer to a shop and got another gigabyte of RAM and I bought a better graphics card. Then I went to "systemrequirementslab.com" and it says that I now meet and exceed all of the requirements for the game. But every time I play, the game closes about 5 minutes into gameplay. An error box would pop up saying that an error had occurred and that the game needed to close. I made sure that my drivers and my game was up to date. I tried lowering all of the game settings and putting the game in window mode, but it still crashed. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game twice. I even turned off my Norton anit-virus program, because some people said that the program might cause conflict with the game, but that didn't work either.

Here are some of my computer specs:
- System: Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3)
- Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.06GHz
- CPU speed: 3.08GHz
- RAM: 1023.4 MB (around 2GB)
- Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series
- 98.3 GB of space left on my computer

If somebody can PLEASE help me, I would really appreciate it.

Hi guys
I'm at my wits end.
I have these incidents where I'll be playing a game [namely City of Heroes ], and about half an hour into the game, my keyboard will decide that it won't let me move using the keys - neither will it allow me to use the Windows key to get out of the gaming window, which I normally have no problem with. When I do press the windows key, I can only see half of the taskbar, and the game is still visible. In-game animations are playing as normal, yet I can't select the CoH tab in the taskbar to return to the game.

I can, however, type as normal (on the first sign of this happening).

I end up having to switch it off from the mains!

It's been doing this for a while now, on and off - I'm worried I will damage the hard drive, or I've already damaged it.
I've attached a pic of the EventTracker log which shows "Printers" as the category - I must say though, a printer is not attached [which is even more weird]

Hi everyone. I have a problem concerning a BSOD when any game (or 3D application) starts up, where a few seconds after I start the game/application, windows shuts down and a BSOD displays, stating there is a

'page_fault_in_nonpaged_area'

which results in my computer being restarted after a count reaches 100 for deleting physical memory.

I have recently made some major upgrades, which is when the problem started. I installed a new mobo, video card (as old mobo had onboard video and no PCI-e slots), and a gig of RAM.
Since the problem I have bought a new PSU and another gig of RAM to replace the other stick I bought to check if it was faulty.

My Specs (since upgrade)
Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz
Windows XP Home SP2
Kingston DDR2 2GB 800Mhz
Asus EN8800GT
Gigabyte P31-DS3L
Antec NeoPower 550W PSU
Western Digital IDE 160GB 7200RPM HDD

Nothing is overclocked.
I didn't reformat after I installed all the new parts, rather removed all the old drivers beforehand and installed the new ones after.

What I've tried?
Ruled out PSU and RAM problems. Thats...about it

Another note:
Interestingly, games DO work (at least Steam ones) when I set them to launch windowed and at 800 x 600 resolution. Anything higher results in the aforementioned BSOD.

Next thing I'm considering is to reformat, it's been suggested by a few people but not by others...

Okay, so I've googled this problem and have no idea what the problem is:

So my game (Guild Wars) constantly crashes to desktop now, and I haven't done anything to the software/hardware/anything whatsoever between the time it was working fine and from when it began crashing. Whenever I go off for the night and come on the next day it lets me play the game for an hour or two, then it crashes. Once it crashes and I try to open the game again it only lets me stay on for a few minutes at a time. I've rebooted in between crashes; it doesn't let me stay on for more than a few minutes after the first crash anyway. I go to sleep or give it hours of time and then I get an hour or so of gameplay again (everything starts all over). I've put a fan next to my graphics card in my open computer but it hasn't helped.
My card is an Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT and my computer has 1 GB of RAM.

If anyone can offer help here I would really appreciate it, thanks!
 

A:Game crashing to desktop...

It certainly sounds as if it's an overheating issue. It may be your CPU, RAM or hard disk drives as well as your graphics card. Check that all your cables are secure and plugged in tight. Also put and reset your RAM and PCI cards as well to be sure nothing has vibrated lose.

Things tried:

Verify Integrity Of Game Cache (3 files failed, were re-downloaded & still crashing)
Delete csgo.exe file and let steam re-download it (still crashing)
Uninstall csgo from steam library & completely delete folder of it. ( still crashing )

I run other games on steam no problem, but csgo does not want to cooperate with me.

You probably have a cheapo power supply(or just a low wattage model) that doesn't have as much power as your system will require. Check the brand, wattage, and amperages per rail(12v, 3.3v, 5v, etc), and post back if you can. The Psu(power supply unit) is in the top back corner of the case usually, so you'll have to open the case to look at it.

Edit: Welcome to Techspot BTW.

A:Keeps crashing whenever I play a game

Your error code (109) could be caused by a driver or hardware. Please run these two tests.
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

I'm currently using Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 (Fully updated, specs below). After installing the drivers and such, I can start games and such, i.e. Counter-Strike. But soon after I join the game, without warning, my pc suddenly turns off. I believe this may have something to do with my gfx card/power supply;

Here are my specs:
EVGA NVIDIA 280 GTX
650W Zephyr Power Supply
MSI P7N SLI Platinum
Intel Core 2 Duo 775 CPU
WD 750GB 7200 RPM
CoolerMaster Cosmos S Case
8GB OCZ DDR2 RAM

Although initially my power supply didn't have enough 8-prong plugs, I got suggestions for a new PS, although I have little to no suspicions about any possible hardware errors.
I'm almost positive that this isn't a software issue, being that I only received my pc yesterday... I've also tried closing nearly every process that could be interfering with my pc, and still nothing. I'm thinking this is a lack of power issue, but I have no real experience with anything power supply related.

Thank you for any help!

i contacted the games owners and they couldn't help i tried everything they suggested to solve this:

runned game's patches, checked my non unicode language to be set to english, checked my sound to be enabled to 2 speakers, installed additional visual C++ versions, turned off windows user accout control, chose run as administrator to open the game, redownloaded and reinstalled the game fully - none of this helped.

perhaps you can identify the problem through the crash log...

Recently my pc has started acting up, so i decided to wipe it clean.
After reinstalling Windows 7 pro 64, i updated all my drivers and reinstalled my games. However, after a minute or two in game, in either game, it will crash to my desktop. Niether program prompts a crash report. Both crash in identical ways. I use AVG Free, and Windows Firewall, i have added exceptions for both.

My graphics card is HD4770, and im running catalyst 11.2
The games im playing are not that intense, Rappelz a MMO and League of Legends an RTS.

I have made no changes to any of my hardware, and i have run several driver detection programs to ensure i didnt miss anything.

Win7 says i have DX11 installed, and my card only supports 10.1 (however, i was able to play like this before, so i assume its backwards compatable).What i have tryed, is to download directx from microsoft but only to get an error on install. "Check to make sure cryptographic services are running" and i did, and they are.

any ideas?
