HJT Log - games crashing or freezing!

Q: HJT Log - games crashing or freezing!

Different programs on my pc (primarily games) are glitching, freezing & crashing (to a reboot)- i've never had problems like this before, even on the same games. Wanted to see if anything was infected, or odd-looking.

Here is the HJT Log...

Preferred Solution: HJT Log - games crashing or freezing!

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.)

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. I had bought a Compaq Presario 5013wm a few weeks ago. The system came with Vista. I was having a lot of hardware issues with network and gfx card, so I opted to install XP. Well, XP wouldn't install because I had no floppy disks to load the raid drivers with, so I went under the BIOs and changed it from RAID to IDE. So now XP is on and everythings working... kind of. The problem I seem to be running into is some seemingly random crashes. From what I've noticed, they only happen while playing a game and, very rarely, when playing music. Sometimes I can play for hours and other times, just a few minutes. The graphics card is a Geforce 7300GS and it has the latest drivers along with the audio. Checked the temp and it seems to stay between 64-67C while playing a game, which I hear is normal for my card. The BIOs is still in IDE mode.. not sure if thats an issue.. can't turn it to RAID without a floppy drive -__-;. Upon thinking of it, I doubt that's the issue as the few times I was able to play before uninstalling vista, I recall the same freeze. I'm really at a loss as to what to do.

SPECS:

Pentium 4 641 HT 3.2 GHz
ASUS P5LP-LE Motherboard
512MB DDR2 Ram
160GB Barracuda 7200 HDD
GeForce 7300GS 266mb PCI-E card
RealTek ALC 888

I've had this problem for a long time, and I'm not the only one.
If anyone could help me out with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

When I run games, I crash. When exactly varies, sometimes I can play games for quite a while without a problem, otherwise I crash out pretty much as soon as I start playing.

Unfortunately, there's a number of 'types' of crashes. For example:
1. The game screen freezes for a few seconds, gets minimized, and displays a driver failure message.
2. The game freezes and simply closes.
3. The game freezes to a single color, with sound looping sometimes, and other times it simply goes quiet.
4. The screen goes black, and a 'HDMI / DVI Signal Lost' (obviously dependant on what I happen to be using -- I've tried multiple) message gets displayed, with my monitor powering down, only to power up again and either present me with my game crashed, or still running fine.

In the time I've had this problem, I've replaced my power feed, my graphics card (twice), and my motherboard. I've done a full reinstall as well as ran multiple tests on both my RAM and HDs, all of which returned no errors. All drivers are up-to-date.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit, on an Asus P5Q SE Plus motherboard, Q6600 CPU, OCZ600SXS power feed, two Samsung HD502IJ HDs and a DVD drive. The GPUs I've had this problem with were the AMD 5850, 9600GT and now the AMD 6950 HD.

Hi. I'm running a modded version of Windows XP. Some of you may know if it, it's called Windows XP Ultimate (by Johnny).

This problem is not due to it being a non-official release of XP, since it was happening before I switched to this version.

The problem I'm having is that windows all of a sudden decides to completely freeze, stuttering the sound from the last eighth of a second or so over and over. The mouse is frozen, ctrl>alt>delete does nothing, etc. The only way to recover is to reboot.

This problem, I've found, happens most often when I'm playing Starcraft. However, on rare occasion it has happened at other times, such as when I'm just browsing a website or talking to friends on ventrilo.

It is the most frustrating problem ever, because I have absolutely no idea what is causing it.

Things I have tried to do to fix it:
-I have re-installed starcraft, though I didn't think this was the problem in the first place since it happens outside of starcraft.
-I have run CCleaner and cleaned the registry
-I have tried going into the task manager and ending every process that didn't seem absolutely critical to what I was doing (things I left open were things like my mouse/keyboard drivers, audio drivers, the actual starcraft exec, windows essential processes, etc).
-I have tried running memtest86+ for a full day, which turned up no errors
-I have tried underclocking my ram and processor (though my cpu temps are only at about 160F when this happens a... Read more

A:XP Freezing (crashing), usually during games

Hello -orb-

Have a look in these places for errors

1. Right click My Computer / Properties / Hardware / Device Manager.
Look for "Yellow" errors

2. Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Admin Tools / Event Viewer / System.
Look for "Red" errors. Double click on error.
Take a note of the Event ID and also the Source and post them back.

This might throw some light on the problem

Basically what happens sometimes in-game is I get either a crash where the screen goes black and then a message saying the graphics driver recovered successfully, or I get freezing up with fps drops every few seconds until I quit the application.

I haven't had this issue before I OC'd my AMD Phenom II X6 1090T CPU from 3.2 to 3.6 GHz. The temperatures of the card are perfectly fine (it's usually around 62-67 degrees) and I also ran some stress tests through furmark, which gave me results consistent with my card's rating, and I had no errors.

I was under the impression that overclocking the CPU didn't affect the graphics card. Also, I'm 100% certain the card is getting enough power because I specifically bought a new power supply a few months back to make sure I would never worry about power issues. The GPU drivers are up to date (I even tried using beta drivers) and I've checked the card physically and got the dust out.

edit: just got another error in Starcraft 2 - "your computer has run out of paged pool memory". I have 12 gbs of ram and with starcraft 2 open i have about 8.5-9 gbs being used.

Does anybody know what is the problem? Thank you for any help.

Hey TSG, I have a problem with my computer when playing games. In some of the newer, higher demanding games, mainly Mass Effect 2, Sims 3, Modern Warfare 2, and occasionally Team Fortress 2, my computer freezes, the monitor goes black and shows no input, the sound loops, everything is unresponsive. This occurs for about 5 seconds straight until it either restarts itself, or I have to press the reset button.

Possible causes:
1. I heard from a number of other threads that it could be from over heating. I've monitored my temperatures while ingame, and the only real problem was that Core 0 was about 60 degree C. Also, sometimes this freezing happens after 5 minutes of turning on the PC and playing a game in the morning.

2. Also from another thread I read it could be from a low performance PSU, which then I relised I had the computer's default one. But I bought a new $100 PSU, which should be more than capable of handling this.

3. This is a personal theory of mine, but I have two wall sockets running my PC system and other devices. But for each of these two plugs, I have a power board plugged in to allow more devices to run, such as my printer and speakers. My computer shares the wallsocket with my monitor, speakers and internet power plug, while the other powerboard powers my printer, homephone and wireless mouse. Maybe there isn't enough power getting to the computer?

Hi, I'm having a problem with my laptop where it will freeze, giving me a screen of fuzzy blocks of colour. This has only happened when I'm playing games, and will almost always happen 10-60 mins after starting a game.
When it freezes I can still move the cursor (represented by its own fuzzy block) and the audio continues for a few seconds then I get a buzzing. If I try alt+tab or ctrl+alt+dlt I can't move the cursor any more either.

The laptop doesn't feel like its overheating, it often gets a lot hotter than it is at these points. I have tried running it just off AC as I've been having some problems with my battery recently that I thought were connected but the same happened.

Any ideas?

A:Screen Freezing/Crashing while playing games

Even though you do not suspect and over heating issue. Clean out all air vents with a can of air. Also go to the manufacture of the laptop Dell go to Support/Drivers locate the model number studio 1558 Make sure you select Windows 7 64bit. Download any updated video drivers available, install them then reboot. Also try temporarly disabling your anti virus while playing games also end tasking any unneeded tasks or programs while playing. These can use up RAM which can also slow down your game and Windows.
Also go to Start type in Msconfig click the Startup tap and uncheck non essential Microsoft items also do not uncheck any anti virus items. Click ok, then reboot.

A lot of startup and running programs in the back ground can slow down your system. Do a disk cleanup. Also try defraging your hard drive.

History of crashing and details of my attempt at troubleshooting:
 
So my laptop has a habit of crashing for quite a while now. Prior to my recent system factory restore, the computer would crash quite often even doing mundane tasks. When it crashed rarely does it bring up BSOD and instead just freezes. After I restart it, out of the 4GB of ram installed, only 2GB out of 4GB was usable according to the system information. But when this happens, the computer is usually stable if I leave it like that (don't turn off or go to sleep) and doesn't crash as often when gaming (still does it, but not the 100% chance during the full 4GB boot).
 
Recently, due to a system file problem caused by a crash during an update, I did a factory restore of this laptop and also attempted to troubleshoot the issue. I ran memtest86 (yeah, it's outdated, but I wasn't aware at the time) with the ram sticks individually. In one slot, it brought up an error within 5 minutes, but when that occurred, it jumped from 0 to 65535+ in an instant and crashed afterwards. I test the same ram stick in the other slot and it passed with no errors overnight. I suspected a bad ram slot and bought a 4GB ram stick. The system seemed to be running fine until I tried gaming again, in which case it crashes within a few minutes (sometimes it freezes other times it brings up BSOD). Afterwards, if I tried to turn it on again, it will result in it freezing and BSOD within minutes of just doing regular tasks. If someh... Read more

So I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 , 10 was for free so why not. It was okay for weeks and i went on a holiday for 3 weeks. When i came back and plugged my PC back in it started to crash to BSOD or it just totally shuts off and restarts. I am also having these freezing problems which force me to manually turn off my PC ( which i know isn't the best for the PC) . Most of the time the crashing happens when Im playing games like Fallout 4,Dead by Daylight. I didn't notice any problems when being in a program like Photoshop CC . I tried programs that find system problems , scanned my hard disk and Ram too , no problems there , tried changing my power supply if its getting enough power . No fixes.

Okay, been having issues with my machine. They seem to be video related. I'm getting crashes, freezes, reboots etc from using different programs.

I have a dual monitor set up, and often have a video (Netflix, YouTube, Twitch etc) playing on one screen while doing things on the other screen (games, video editing). When doing so, I keep getting freezes, crashes and straight reboots, no messages, just suddenly black screen computer powering down.

I've scanned my computer with windows defender and Malwarebyte Anti-Malware and nothing was found.

Did clean uninstall of my video drivers and reinstalled them.

Checked my RAM for errors and found nothing.

It's hard for me to describe, but here are a few things I can give you as symptoms.

1. It does not like me doing more than one thing at a time with regards to video. I can't edit and watch Youtube for instance.
2. Sometimes it will just freeze and I have to hard reboot with the power button to get it going again.
3. Sometimes it will just kill the window in Chrome that has the video on it and say "Aw, snap something went wrong while displaying this webpage."
4. Sometimes it just straight crashes, I have seen a couple of blue screens but more often the screen just turns black and it shuts down.
5. The blue screens sometimes do not point at a specific file when crashing, but when they do it says win32kfull.sys as the program that has errored.

My ideapad Y700-15ISK has been freezing while playing games for about 3 months now. It will be completely fine with no stuttering or lag during game play but seemingly at random it the keyboard will start not recognizing inputs and I will be forced to shut it off using the power button as during full screen games you can only exit them with the keyboard. The strange thing is that the game will still recognize mouse input as I can move it to make my character look around and the game runs fine as normal. This has happened with 3 games so far with varying degrees of severity and just recently my PC crashed while watching a video and wasn't able to reboot until I turned it off and on again. I am not to experienced with laptops but I suspect there could be a problem with the graphics card as I have noticed minor graphical blips during videos. I have contacted Lenovo support on mobile but they have come back with the solution of doing a factory reset 2 times so far. Its always nice to get a second opinion especially now with the crash that recently happend. Thank you for reading.

Since i bought this rig a year ago i haven't been able to play any games that runs on the valve engine(half life 2, css, portal etc) more than a few seconds and then the comp reboots.
With Bf2 i can play max 30 minutes and Bf2142 maybe one hour then they crash exactly the same way as Valve games..
All other games i have tried runs without any problem, even the more demanding such as Crysis, Far Cry 2 and Dark Athena.
This is really anoying since the only game i bother about is BF and CSS.

My comp consist of:

cpu: q6600
gfx: 8800 gt 512mb Point of View
mobo: gigabyte ga-n650sli-ds4
ram: 4gb(2x1gb supertalent02 ddr2 pc2-8900u & 2x1gb dimm ddr2 pc26400u)
psu: 570 watt

Cpu temp is at full load 60c and gpu is at full load 70c, i added an extra fan to the gfx and set the fan to 80%. nothing is overclocked.
I tried with diffrent memorys, changed hdds, reinstalled a bunch of times, reinstalled windows xp 32bit, maybe 10 diffrent nvidia drives, also changed settings for the sound card but none of that made any diffrence.
Havent been able to test with other gfx.

Anyone else hade this issue and manage to solve it then please let me know, also greatful for all suggestions.

Well I just bought a new Computer a clone made by a local computer store.

Anyways here is my problems
I went out and bought Sims 2, Nhl 2005, and Madden 2005 and I'm having problems with every one

with sims 2 the gameplay is not extremely smooth, but I find no matter what I always end up getting a crash message reading "This Application has crashed, this process will be terminated" i get it either in the first 5 minutes or through 2 hours, but everytime I play it usually crashes.

ok with Nhl 2005 the game plays great on the highest resolution, but sometimes just for kicks i get booted to windows without and messages...or sometimes it even reboots my system again with no message. Most of the time when this happends is when I'm exiting a game to the menu screen. Like I find when I transist from game to menu it like changes the screen and I can see my background for a bit.

With madden the game just runs very slow, even on low resolutions with everything turned down. The textures on teh white jerseys look flickery and the field lines are also jumpy.

Hi guys.

I have recently finished building my computer, my first build. I've noticed that when trying to play games (Starcraft 2, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, King Arthur: Collection), I can play for a little bit, usually between 20-40minutes but then when I'm playing the screen will all of a sudden go black/dark blue and the audio will start looping. Sometimes the computer will then restart itself, other times I will have to hard reset it myself by physically pressing and holding the on/off button on my case. I had been hoping it would be an outdated driver for the graphics card, but I have updated to Catalyst 11.12 and there is still problems, I have also tried Catalyst 11.5 and 11.11 and each version I still have crashes on. I have tried re-installing Windows 7 again and that also did not fix the problem. Today I updated my BIOS to the latest version and that seemed to fix it for a bit but then it crashed again. I have tried just about everything I can think of and nothing seems to fix it. Could you guys possibly help me out?

Just bought and installed 2 new games, The Godfather and Tony Hawks American Wasteland.

Both are crashing and freezing until I have to Ctrl Alt Delete out of them. Godfather does it as soon as gameplay starts, 5 secs or so in more or less, Tony Hawks runs for differing times, sometimes a few seconds, sometimes a few minutes but both will crash eventually.

Have updated Video, Sound, Mobo and DirectX drivers. Closed any running progs etc. PC meets spec and should play them no probs. First games I had any hassle with, can run COD2, HL2, Far Cry etc on high

Would be extremely grateful if anyone can help me with what is causing these to do so.

Hello, my story is similar to another post here. Been gaming on this computer for 2 years now, mmorgs, never any real issues, in the past two weeks, my computer just suddenly shuts off while I'm playing. No errors, no bsod, just quietly shuts down. I have to toggle to switch on the power supply to get it to turn back on, sometimes it just wont beep. (post)

I've cleaned the fans, I installed updated video drivers, I ran a virus/malware/grayware scan, shut off all tsr's, I even bought a new power supply today, but it still shuts down. Not while on the net, only during gaming. I even tried a second game to see if it did the same thing, and, yes, sadly it did. So, I'm searching the web for possible solutions. I downloaded and installed speedfan 4.3.1 off this website, and it reports : Found ACPI temperature (72.5C) Not sure what that means. Only thing running right now is IE & msn messenger. Suggestions are most welcome. Thank you. I'm addicted to WoW and I'm having withdrawals... :giddy:

Hi all. Recently the games i play ( face of mankind and prey) have started to crash to desktop and sometimes crash my whole system making it reboot. I have been playing face of mankind for over a year now and never had these problems before but when in a combat situation it will regulary crash to desktop, also i just bought prey and this will also crash to desktop with a jerky sound repeat and sometimes crash my whole system after playing for between 5 and 30 mins. Also BF2 has never worked on my system, i can play for about 5 mins then my whole system will lock up, with a jerky sound repeat, then wont even start afterwards. I tried a system restore to before the problems started happening but this didnt fix the problem. I have a feeling the problem might be my sound card, as it is quite old in relation to the rest of my system. Im sure u can understand my frustration as my computer cost near to 2000 and my favourite games are no longer playable.
my system specs are:

AMD FX 55
Geforce 6800GT(with latest drivers)
SB live! sound card
1 gig ram

I am tempted to buy a new sound card (fatality SB) to try and fix the problems but if it didnt work would obviously be a big waste of money, any ideas or comments that might help me solve this problem would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance, Kroma.

A:games crashing

first off XP is way more stable than vista (i love vista but it is the truth).

i also would lean to it being the wireless card, as i have no issue playing any games on my rig with Vista x64.

can you hook up a wired connection to the rig to see if it still freezes with that connection or no?

Specifically The Sims will play for about half an hour then crash...and my CDRom won't even read the CivII disk...
I have checked the device manager and am told that the CD works fine, ran a scandisk and found no errors, defragged the system, anti-virus checks, dr. watson all to no avail...I am quickly becoming discouraged...
The only other thought I had was that the CDRom was hosed, but I can still play music CDs.

I tried to play the game Half-Life 2: Episode One a week ago. When I started it, I noticed the little black holes in the textures. Fine, I can live with that, I thought, but suddenly, the game crashed and ATI Catalyst opened the Send Error Report window. I sent it twice, but they're still not responding. I tried to play Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines too, but the same thing happened (it was working just fine two months ago). The first thing I thought was that there was something wrong just with those games (cause they use the same engine), but I noticed those little black holes in the Catalyst Control Center "3D" tab, window with that red car in 3D (it doesn't crash though).

I am currently on a new pc, and i am having a load of problems with it. First of all games such as BF2 and GRAW keep crashing. At first i though that might might be a conflict between the processors, so i went Ctrl + Alt + Delete, found the process, right clicked and set affinity to CPU 0, hoping that as it was only using one, a conflict wouldn't happen. But i have also noticed that other programs such as registry mechanic and other random software keep crashing also. Surely this isn't a problem with the dual core. Anybody got any ideas of how to fix or diagnose the problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

P.S I am sure there is a problem, as this new computer IMO runs no-where near the specifications of my old pc, which has about half the specs of the new one.

And yes, I am using the latest driver from NVIDIA (93.71). All right, I've got an interesting one for you. I'm fairly certain this is a graphics card related issue. Basically I've been suffering random crashes when playing games for a few months now. The crashes never happen outside of games. It all started with a demo of Call of Juarez. At random points during play, my computer screen would switch into standby mode and fans inside my computer would speed up (or at least sound like they were). I assumed this was some random software fault and reinstalled the game... surely enough it crashed less often, if at all after that, so I thought I was fine.

After that, I bought Gothic 3, and the crashing started there too. So, I reinstalled it, everything was fine, but then it happened again (seemingly when I didn't go into the menu and save for a while... which would allow my GPU to cool down, I suppose). Then it started happening recently on The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. And again on Warhammer 40,000: Dark Crusade. I've ran a temp check, and with Oblivion the crashes appeared to correspond with higher temperatures, as I was running at almost 70C when it crashed. But then I tried ... Read more

Now, I suspect It's only Games For Windows LIVE (GFWL) Games doing it, But then I remember that CoD4 did it. Now I'm afraid that if I play anymore games, And do this too much, That I will Seriously Screw My computer.

Not sure if this is a hadware problem or an operating system problem but here it goes...

I built a machine not too long ago and I'm having problems running games on it. I'll load up a game and play it for a little bit, then it just freezes and loops the current sound. I can't alt+tab or ctrl+alt+del out of it, so I always have to restart my machine in these cases. Sometimes it happens within the first couple minutes of opening the game, sometimes in an hour.

The games are running at full or close-to-full spec, but I don't believe this is the problem, as I'm running some powerful hardware. The problem has occured on the following games: Call of Duty4, Lost Planet, BioShock, Company of Heroes, Fable, Team Fortress 2 (when finding servers), and Hellgate London.

My current hardware...
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz, 1066MHz FSB
Motherboard: EVGA NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI
Power: Rosewill 850W
RAM: G.SKILL 2GB DDR2 800
Video: XFX GeForce 8800GTX
Storage: Western Digital 160GB SATA

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: Forgot to mention I'm running Windows XP 32-bit as my operating system.

Ok, so about a month ago My computer started going all screwy. When I play a game like cod2 or any game on my comp, I get red lines and my comp crashes! I just Re-formated and it's still doing it to me. I have a nvidia 7800 gt, 1 gig, 450w power supply, 40 gig hard drive. But I just ordered a bigger 600w power supply to see if that's the problem but im skepticle. I also ordered 2 gigs and 2 250g hard drives, but that's not relivant. So if anyone has any info on what the problem might be please let me know!

Windows 10 was put through recovery, DDU was used to remove all drivers as well and newest drivers installed without GeForce Experience then used DDU again to unistall and installed drivers without G Experience. Still same issue. Tried older version of drivers , still same issue
GEFORCE 945 GTX 2GB
Have been running this PC for 4 years without a issue , playing all the games I'm trying to play now.
