SW KOTOR 2: Crashes during loading screens

Q: SW KOTOR 2: Crashes during loading screens

Hello, I've gone through a bit of the internet trying to find help with a problem I've been having with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. Currently on Onderon (first planet I went to after Telos), my game keeps crashing on loading screens between docks and the market square, and the market square and the cantina (early parts of Onderon). I've updated my drivers to current, and tried (though failed, for some reason) to update the game, too. When it crashes, the KOTOR style mouse turns to the regular white windows mouse, freezing the loading screen right near the end of the loading bar, and coming up with the message that the program has to be closed.

I found a similar problem someone on these forums had (http://forums.techguy.org/games/933566-kotor-2-crashes.html), this was the only instance I could find of an issue similar to mine?

As for specifications, I use the Mss32.dll fix for Win 7, running the game in Win XP SP 2 Compatibility mode. My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT for Windows 7 32 Bit, 4 GB memory, a dual core processor @ 1.87 GHz on a Dell Inspiron the precise name of which I don't directly know. I'd really appreciate any help as I've only been playing the game for about 4 days and since I'm really enjoying it, I'd hate to have to give it up.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

KOTOR 2 keeps crashing to desktop with the message swkotor has encountered a problem and needs to close. Usually this happens during load screens transitioning from one area to another. It has also happened a few times when I attempt to quick save, with the result that my quick save is corrupted and I have to load a backup. Rarely, it will crash during normal gameplay when I'm not saving or loading. The few times this has happened it was preceded by entering a new area or loading a menu and finding missing textures and images. For example, walking into a cantina to find that there is no floor, walls or ceiling, wandering around for about 30 seconds, and then the game crashes. I would say it crashes on average after 20-30 minutes of gameplay, and almost never immediately after starting the game.

I have tried running the game in XP compatibility mode, both SP 2 and SP 3. The only effect this had was to delete my saves. I'm not sure why running it in compatibility mode would do that, but it did. I have also tried a couple of fixes that i saw suggested on forums, replacing the Mss32.dll file and modifying the swkotor.ini to Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1. Neither of these have had any discernible effect. I checked the affinity and made sure it was only using one core. I've tried minimum settings, I've tried maximum settings. Nothing.

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit. I have an AM2 X4 630 processor, an Nvidia 9800GT and 4Gb ddr2.

I'd really appreciate ... Read more

After installing KOTOR 2, I run the game. I go through the menu screens and watch the first movie. Then, however, the screen remains blank (black) while music is playing. About 45 seconds later, a message box pops up saying that KOTOR 2 has to close. My computer is well within the system requirements (2.8 GHz Pentium D, 1 GB RAM, etc) with the exception of my 'graphics card' (really an IGP), but that has been offically supported since the latest patch, which I have already installed. I have all the latest drivers and the latest DirectX 9 build.

My computer after trying to (stupidly) remove the SPTD driver so Daemon Tools would work. Is stuck on the black loading screen, even when loading from safe mode.

I tried removing the sptd driver, but only took out 1 of 2 files, the other not being removed properly. So i restarted (which worked) and restored my computer to an hour before i tried any of it. I could only log on in safe mode and i checked and saw that both drivers were there. So i turn off the computer and it was fine.

However, i tried to turn on the computer again later, but it got stuck on the black screen with just the mouse. I held the power button and retried,in safe mode, this time getting to my computer background, with nothing loading. I tried yet again and only got black screen. It says all my drives loaded and everything, including sptd, but nothing is loading.

I have just read a couple of other threads, and they say it might be because of fried hardware. This brings up that i clicked off my powerbar to turn off my computer. Could i have fried my motherboard or anything? Even though i can use restore and other features?

(sorry for this post being such a mess, i copy+pasted from another board too)

When loading Windows and yet to reach my desktop, I get this error on the blue screen.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems contine, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory optiosn such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

I am not an expert in this area, and people, please fell free to walk all over me on this one, because I am pulling this outta my ***. BUt I am just trying to help with all I know like you guys have helped me in the past.

Well, here goes, the first error message, I would suspect you might have set the CPU and/or memory setting sat a higher speed than they were designed to operate at. I got that message when I tried to overclock my FSB to 166MHZ instead of 133MHZ. But you threw that assumption out with your follow up. Anyways, may I suggest just buying a stick of memory from some place where you can get a refund and see if it works if you swap the memory? Because it does sound suspiciously like you have bad mammory.

Hi, first, all's working good, no Windows 7 problems

I was curious about what Windows is loading during the spinning "Logo" screen after POST (the black background screen with the colored Windows logo).

Is this when Windows is accessing and loading the Boot Mgr in the "System Reserved" partition and also loading Windows drivers?

Also, what is Windows starting or loading when the "Welcome" screen appears?

Does "Iexplore.exe" begin once the user logs into their Windows account at the "Welcome" screen?

What is the general consensus as to the elapsed time during the Logo screen, from the time it appears to the time that the Welcome screen appears?

I'm using conventional ("spinner") HDD's on my 2 Windows PC's and the Logo screen elapsed time is about the same on my Desktop PC and my Laptop PC , about 26-28 seconds in duration.

System: Compaq Presario 5BW160
OS: Windows XP home

I did something stupid the other day... I went into device manager to disable the Intel 82810E graphics controller for my onboard AGP video so I could upgrade to a better PCI card, restarted, and upon finding that the card still didn't work I went in again and disabled the thing that still allowed me to run in 640x480 with the graphics controller uninstalled. Of course now I have no display at all after the initial loading screens, and no apparent way to re-enable what I have disabled. I have heard it is possible to do so in XP with a DOS emulator boot disk. If so, how would I go about doing it? If not, is there any way to fix what I've done apart from a complete reformat and OS reinstallation?

Hey, I hope everyone is doing well. My problem is when im entering the welcome screen where you choose the user, whether it be logging off or just starting it up, i have to wait way too long for it to load. The screen will just appear black and I'll hear the cpu every once in awhile. Its a recently new computer and it has no other problems besides that, does anyone know what is causing this or/and how i can fix this?

I appreciate any help.
 

A:SLOW loading time between welcome screens

Have you been on the internet? You could be infected with:
Viruses
Spyware
malware
Adware

Also try running a defrag, clear up your desktop, uninstall program/games you haveing used in a long time, if you running XP turn down the overall detail and look of windows, Clean up your temp, chache, cookies ect and empty out your recycle bin.

This should speed up your system overall. It should at least speed up the start up.

Wasn't too sure whether to put this in gaming or hardware, but hardware seemed more relevant.

Anyway, I seem to be encountering an issue where my computer will literally shut itself down while I am playing a game. However, this does not happen while I am actually playing the game, I could spend hours in a level if I felt like it and would not experience any issues, but when I go to a loading screen, my computer stops mid-loading and just shuts itself down. No BSOD, no warnings, nothing, it just shuts down. Now, I'm not sure if this is heat-related, or PSU related, or some other issue. The temperature of the graphics card seems to go no higher than 70C, however, and I've read you don't hit a 'danger zone' until you hit 90C or higher. So, perhaps it is PSU related. If you want to know what my PSU's wattage is, just look at my system specs, I've listed just about everything.

These are the games I've encountered crashes with so far:

(listed in the order I've had crashes in)

Bioshock Infinite
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Crysis 2

However, I've also played these games and have NOT yet encountered this issue:

*only listing high-demanding games, these are not the only games I have tested with this PC*

Assassin's Creed
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

I will also note that I run ALL of these in absolutely maxed out settings. I average framerates in all of them except Crysis 2 of 60-70 FPS, Crysis 2 is the only one that seems to have framerate drops, it runs ... Read more

A:Crashing issue at loading screens?

The first thing I would suspect is the power supply. However, the supply you list in your specs is a well respected brand and plenty big enough.
Do you have a multimeter you can test with?

The second thing would be poor connections. I suggest re-seating all your cards and double checking the electrical connections to all the devices.
Also make sure the case is clear of heavy dust and hair.

The third thing that comes to mind is the CPU. What I might experiment with is this:
Turn off all energy saving settings (CPU Power) and run the processor in a High Performance mode.
Leave the overdrive stuff OFF on all.
Remove any and all graphics card overclocking and run it at stock settings.
Remove any and all overclocking settings for the CPU and run it at default settings.
The idea is to test the new settings for clues to what may be causing the spontaneous power-off.

Not sure what the problem is. Basically, for a long while now, whenever I restarted my computer or sometimes turned it off, the computer seems to fail to get past "loading" the floppy disk, and as a result is on, but there is no display or anything.

Today I went on my computer in the morning, right clicked on MSN messenger, and it shut off. Now, whenever it gets past the Windows loading screens (this goes for Safe Mode as well), it simply restarts, and fails to load the floppy drive and there is no display. I have to manually turn the power off on the back of the computer, wait a little, and then power it back on, but it's always the same deal. My operating system is Windows XP Professional.

What should I do? What can the problem be?

A Stop 7F error is usually hardware related, often from RAM issues.

If your RAM is 2 x 512, then remove half. If no better swap for the other half. That will eliminate the most likely problem.

Hey. So I play World of Warcraft and the other week there was a huge patch that was giving me a blue-screen error in certain zones in-game. Assuming it was a driver issue I updated my graphics driver and when that didn't work I installed the 40 or 50 Windows updates I had been ignoring over the past months and restarted. Still no luck so I downloaded Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and Realtek Ethernet Controller Driver (no clue why I downloaded that one, I don't even know what it does...) I read a thing about changing something in MSConfig, like a safe-boot for troubleshooting that just loads up the essential things on startup or something. I restart again and it's doing this loading thing and its progress is at like 5000/200000 after a minute or so, and being an impatient idiot, I do a hard shut down and power it back up. Here's what's been happening ever since:

When I try to load Autodesk Alias while having an external monitor connected to my laptop both the screens go black and I'm left with just the cursor. I then have to do a reset by holding the laptop power button and then turn it on again. This only happens when the desktop is set to extended but when I have it as mirrored desktop the program loads fine. I've installed a new ssd in place off my hdd.

I wanted to do a fresh install of windows but when I did that I was getting the black screen problem with the external display as above. So I then cloned my existing hdd and then did a windows reset from the windows recovery option hoping that would solve the problem as it worked fine when the hdd was installed, but it didn't.

I think maybe something is missing, because everything works fine on the HDD but by refreshing windows on the SSD after cloning the HDD something must have been left out?

Laptop is an Acer 8943g with Amd mobility Radeon 5800 graphics card. I have updated the drivers for the graphics card but still no luck.

Hello, I'm calling for my mother's desktop computer. It's been a little wierd lately and I'd like to know what's wrong with it. I've had a little experience with tech support in college classes, but I don't know what the cause of this problem is. Computer information is:

Microsoft XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3
Processor ? Intel[R] Pentium[R] 4 CPU 320 GHz 3.19 GHz
RAM ? 512 MB
C Drive ? Total Space: 74.4 GB, Free Space: 28.7 GB

Over the past month, our Norton GoBack feature has come up during the booting process, telling us to revert back to a previous Recovery Point because Windows cannot load properly. Each time we do this, but it's done it once every couple weeks or so. It's good that it does that, but we're concerned that the computer might slowly be dying on us.

Other than that, it will get stuck at another loading window, where it shows a black screen with the Windows XP logo, "Copyright Microsoft Corperation" and "Microsoft" in the botton corners, with a progress-like bar under the XP logo. It's fully normal, but getting stuck there is worrying as well. The blue bar animation doesn't stop, but it just stays at that screen until we manually shut the system off. I tried going into the F8 menu to go into Safe Mode, but it was unresponsive and had to turn it off manually. It's a Dell Desktop Computer we got back in 2002 (as you could tell from what version of XP we have)

So I had windows 8.1 and one day randomly I try to log in and it would only be a black screen and my mouse would show up. After hours of researching and trying what I found on the web I realized that nothing was going to fix it so I just reprogrammed my computer to windows 7 pro. With windows 7 my computer worked for about 3 days and then it just kept on crashing and getting blue screened. I forgot to download an anti virus so I just assumed it was a virus. Tried to get it out in safe mode but nothing would work so once again I reprogrammed my computer to windows 7 pro. After it worked fine I downloaded all my drivers, games I played, word, etc.. This time remembering the anti virus first. And once again about 2-3 days later I'm starting to get blue screens and once when I logged onto my computer I got a DCOM shutting down error. I don't know what's going on I've spent hours trying to fix it but I can't get it. I built my own computer. Idk what it could be I've had it for a year and a half and it just started doing this. Could it be a driver making it crash? But I haven't really updated any drivers.

Hi there,

Recently i just installed a new eVGA Geforce 7600GT CO graphics card into my computer.

Computer Specs:
Athlon XP 3800x2
1 Gig Mushkin 3200 DDR ram
300 Gb Maxtor SATAII harddisk
Sonata 400W smart PSU
Gigabyte Tech Motherboard w/ onboard Nvidia 6100 GPU

Before installing this graphics card i never encountered these blue screens or random computer crashes. After installing it however, a few days later, i experience these crashes quite frequently and they are starting to get annoying. My computer is brand new, built it a few days ago. I only just learnt that these crashes were due to minidump crashes after reading some posts in this forum.

I've tried updating my graphics driver but at no success.

I'm attaching zip files with all the minidump logs from all my crashes. Minidump.zip has the most recent minidump logs. Minidump2 and minidump3 respectively contain older logs. If anyone can tell me why my computer is doing this to me i'll be really grateful!

Also if it helps, these crashes occur most frequently when i'm running graphics intense 3D games like half-life2, battlefield2, f.e.a.r and even warcraft III. But occasionally even listening to music or having my computer on idle mode, it'll crash and give me that blue screen.

Thanks in advance!

A:Blue Screens from minidump crashes

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Your minidumps crash with a bugcheck of 9C.

This means you have some kind of hardware failure.

Disconnect anything not required to run your system. Leave just the mobo/psu/cpu/1 stick of ram/hard drive/graphics card.

See how your system runs.

Go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hard drive.

0x0000009C: MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

This is a hardware issue: an unrecoverable hardware error has occurred. The parameters have different meanings depending on what type of CPU you have but, while diagnostic, rarely lead to a clear solution. Most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU).

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

I was browsing the web when I got a warning from McAfee that it blocked something, then I got a ton of errors about different DLLs and things having to close due to errors, I also got another warning or two from McAfee. Everything closed (my system tray was empty nothing but sound controls and something about my internet connection).
After everything settings and McAfee reloaded, I ran Spybot to scan for what caused it. During the scan my computer gave me the blue screen. I reloaded (it took over three times longer to load up than normal), tried to scan again, same result. I restarted (again, taking longer), and went into msconfig to set my boot.ini file to load safemode, when I hit apply it gave me a warning that told me it returned an access denied error message and that I might have to be on an administator account for it to work. I clicked ok on the message and clicked ok to close the window, it gave me the message again. I restarted, and it loaded safemode.
The first time safemode loaded it told me that a shutdown was going to start in 60 seconds, and that it was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. It gave additional info that it was caused by something like a DCOM server process launcher being terminated unexpectedly. It did this again when I restarted the first time, and the second time I restarted (third time loading safemode) it didn't, it stopped happening every time after that.
I began a scan using spybot in safe mode. It gave me 9 entries, 7 were fixed and 2 had ... Read more

My computer crashes randomly and frequently, it becomes totally frozen and the monitor displays weird lines and stuff.. It's a fairly advanced pc /w a ati radeon/realtek/3 ghz/500 gb hdd so i reckon it's worth saving. I can't tell why it's crashing (it's been to the store where they replaced the Power Supply but to no avail it crashes a lot and i get beep codes, it's a real mess. Before my leg knocked the CPU (it was on the floor as I had no place for it (now it's on a seperate table), I think this corrupted the VGA as I heard the CPU make a whizzing sound. Also I knocked it while loading it in the van to take it to the store, and it dented it slightly. What could I do to fix it? Is it a Mobo prob or my monitor which is a cheapass old second-hand Samsung Samtron 55E Plus monitor since it was after this monitor that my comp first starting hanging. The big question is can it be repaired? Right now I can get it to load to the desktop but it freezes, it's been plagued /w probs; usb drive worm, drivers missing etc. Using this baby is high-maintenance, I'd buy a lappy but I need a desktop for games /w a 17" lcd and such..

This is a home-built system (win7 x64 OEM) that has been running for about a year with no issues. A little over a month ago, I started getting random program crashes, and frequent blue screen crashes. There doesn't seem to be any real pattern. Sometimes it will bluescreen while just sitting idle. But playing resource-intensive games brings them on more frequently. Based on experience, I was pretty sure the problem was some hardware component, so I started trying to narrow it down. Originally, I thought it was related to a new wi-fi card I installed, because the reliability history showed that the crashes started the day I installed it. Since then I have done the following:
Removed the wi-fi card and completely wiped the drivers off the system. No effect.
Replaced the video card. No effect.
Ran a bunch of memory diagnostics, which found nothing.

At this point, the crashes started getting worse, and eventually, Windows stopped booting altogether, reporting failure to mount the boot volume. So then, I:
Tried to run SeaTools off a boot CD, but it kept crashing partway through the long test.

Hi,

Two minidumps are crashed with IP Misalinged.

IP_MISALIGNED ? this crash happens when CPU?s instruction pointer fails to point to the beginning of a valid instruction. Instead, it points into the middle of an instruction. This is believed to be a hardware problem, possibly caused by over-clocking, over-heating, or power supply problem.

BUT not World of Warcraft or Warhammer Online... I crash, get a black video screen, andthe sound locks up and repeats. The only other time that itll crash is when Ive had the computer running for days and it overheats at the base of the moniter AND while its running anything with sound (while its running hot) like winamp, a game, or a video play playing a basic avi file. Ive updated my nvidia and directx drivers/files, my games are up to date, and I run avg and avast antivirus. Ive had my video card replaced and my moniter replaced (qosmio laptop) by toshiba, but the problems still exist. Ive even had the heat sinks replaced. Im beginning to think that this is purely vista software related. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just built a new machine and did a clean install of Win7 RC last week. For the most part it runs like a dream, very much up to par.

However, there are occasional Blue Screens and game crashes that happen while putting little strain on the PC, in my opinion.

My Machine:
Intel I7 920
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R MoBo
Geforce GTX 260
6GB G.Skill DDR3 1600
260GB Seagate Barracuda HD

I am typically running Firefox, Ventrilo and World of Warcraft when the issue occurs. Occasionally I get dips in my frame rate from around 60fps to 15-25fps. I received a notification that it was in relation to my video card and that I should update the driver, however I installed the 185.85 nvidia driver when I assembled it all.

Is there anyone that has experienced similar issues? if so what was your fix?

Thanks for the time

Check the event viewer logs for info, under windows logs. Type event viewer in the search box on the start menu. It will show up.

Also, posting as much as you can about the information in the bsod such as error codes and descriptive line can only help figure out what is causing them.

Hello, I am now to these forums and am my wits end. The computer that I have now, I have had for about a year now, the problem that I am having is that during any game play, and it does it in all games, it will randomly crash, by that I mean the screen will go black, the video card fan will ramp up to 100%, most of the time, music or sound will still play in the background, I need to do a hard restart and it comes back up perfectly fine.

I have run the hardware checker, it checked everything and says that everything is fine with no problems. The video card has been replaced, the new card is identical to the old one. I have replaced the power supply, and went with one that was a little bigger, wattage wise.

The reliability report shows that it is a video hardware problem, I have been dealing with this almost the entire time I have had the computer. Any help I receive will be most appreciated.

pss. I dont believe that there is a complete dump file included, when it happens again, I will upload the new file.

A:Random Crashes and black screens

If it's a video hardware problem and the fan keeps ramping up - then it's likely an overheating problem.

Try the video tests at this link: Hardware Diagnostics
Be sure to use a temp monitor (suggested at the above link) when testing the card. You'll want to know how high the temps get - and how they change when the black screen occurs.

There are no memory dumps in the uploaded reports. Please zip up the contents of C:\Windows\Minidump and upload it with your next post (you may have to copy it to your Desktop before zipping it up).

SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:




1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD
2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to.

Whenever I put in full screen mode, explorer.exe keeps crashing continuously to where it causes the screen to keep blinking. This only happens with extended displays and not duplicate displays. Here is what I have tried so far:

1. Restarted PC(obviously)
2. Reinstalled Display Drivers, and even installed an older copy to see if it was a problem with the new driver.
3. Tried both VGA cables and HDMI cables. All which worked fine before this started happening
4. Tried 4 different TV's and a monitor. (so its definitely the Laptop)
5. Tried disabling SLI

Hi all, new poster here, so please be fair.

2 days ago Portal 2 was playing fine, but yesterday I upgraded my CPU (to an AMD FX 4100 Quad Core Black edition), motherboard (Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P) and my Ram (4GB DDR 3). I figured I could just swap the components and keep going without reinstalling windows 7. But after swapping everything and loading up Portal 2 would just cold reset on me on the loading screen.

I've tried reinstalling windows 7 today and I'm in the process of reinstalling Portal, but now another game I've just purchased, FEAR 3 is now also cold resetting on the loading logo.

I've tried going through a few other suggestions, like running steam on just one core, with no luck. I've got a crash report below and attached the zip file. Any ideas?

I have a theory that it might be my PSU, which runs about 550W. (Also brand new)

Dimefan3,

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .





Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP.
Return to the default settings at least for now.

If you are running a RAID update its driver.

Hello,
I know there are many websites out there for modern warfare 2 crashes and other problems with the game but I just can't fix this problem.

The problem: A few minutes after joining a game and actually playing, the game crashes and I get an error saying iw4mp.exe has encountered an error with Send Error Report, Debug, Don't send.

If I try re opening the game, I either get a blue screen or the same happens until I get a blue screen with a 0x00000050 error.

I checked eventvwr.smc and I found that there are different logs, if anyone can let me know what the problem is, here are some of the logs:

2.Faulting application iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x000adc46.

3.Faulting application iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0022ea1f.

4.Faulting application iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0002e3a9.

5.Faulting application iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, faulting module iw4mp.exe, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x0002d5f7.

Other than the game problems, I am also getting random svchost.exe errors, not sure what those are either but when they do happen, I can do literally nothing until I restart because my computer just stops responding, here's one of the logs:

A:Modern Warfare 2 Crashes/Blue Screens.

Um, this just happened with Command and Conquer 3, Tiberium Wars, without the blue screen, so it's obviously not the game's problem.

Hi there! I hope this is the right place for this.
 
Lately I have been running into the BSOD every few days or so. I've also have had some random crashing in which the computer would just lock up and would require a system reset. The last blue screen gave me an error saying that a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval. This mostly occurs while browsing the web with chrome, though it did happen once as I windows was loading. After typing in my log on password the menus became unresponsive and it seemed to lock up. This has not happened while playing any games so far.
 
The computer itself is about four years old or so and is mainly used for gaming and web browsing. I'm not all too sure what is the cause of my troubles, but I know that I had major stability issues with the sound card I was using a long way back. It has since been removed. There were some minor hangs after I decided to install more system memory but I didn't pay it too much attention until now. I've also been receiving errors in which my gpu stops working from time to time. I think it may be the motherboard but I'm not too sure as I'm not real tech savy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello
My PC is not working well and i can't figure out why .
Symptoms :
- When i try to play a game it gives me Fatal error with "the memory can't be read / written " ( That happens in games like WoW and Warcraft 3 TFT ) or exits the game for games like Painkiller or PES 6 .
- The error / crashes in games happen randomly sometimes when i start the games and sometimes between 5 and 30 minutes .
- Other applications fail (like Firefox or Yahoo messenger ) this happens pretty often too .
- Random reboots happen 4-5 times a day
- Yesterday i unchecked the automatically reboot option and now instead of reboots i get a blue screen with an error ( classic ) i wrote down this error 0x00000024 0x001902FE 0xF89959BC 0xF89956B8 0x804ED1A6

What i did :

Please someone reply to my thread !!!===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has ...
