    Hello guys

    Thing is that every time a play a game (not Counter - Strike) a get a bluscreen (or it chrases to my desktop) telling me somethin about: "Dumping Virtual Memory.., if this is your first time you see this **** and so on" I really have no idea why this is happening and I'm seeking an awser beacuse I don't want to format (again).

    Why I mentioned CS is beacuse it "only" crashes to my desktop every once in a while, but no bluscreen there.

    Can someone please help this sorry ass newbie
    Thanks :( ronnelin:cry:

    most probably you are having a driver related problem. next time you get the blue screen look for a STOP error and post it here.
    another thing you can do is go to control panel --> administrative tools --> event viewer.
    in it click on "System" and look for a recent red colored cross mark. double click on it and look for the error. it will most probably tell you which driver is a problem.

    since u r having this while playing game then i m just guessing that may be it is your vid card driver, but then i can be wrong.

    if the stop error is 0x0000008x or 7x you have a memory problem., buy some new dimms and you should be good to go.

    ***STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0XBF9100BE, 0XEDF45BC4, 0,00000000)
    *** win32k.sys - Adress BF9100BE base at BF800000, datestamp 3db6d462

    actually i hate to say this but that error usually comes due to bad memory.
    anyways we can still try to do something. wat is the latest change that u made to ur PC? any new hardware installed? new memory sticks installed?
    test ur memory with the help of memtest86 and see if it is faulty.

    It's not always "bad memory" that does this and it just maybe that the timings are set too fast or ya may need to increase the memory voltage 0.1 volts to obtain stability.

    1. check http://www.memtest86.com/#display to sort out the errors.

    2. if you don't understand what wiggo was talking about then most probably you haven't overclocked your system. anyways next time any overclocker sees this thread they might help you. (i just know that it can be done from BIOS)

    3. being reg = being regular. i was talking about wiggo.

    4. whenever you mention a new STOP error...please mention the full error message. mostly all the STOP messages have a .sys file attached with it. for example in your earlier error it was win32.sys and this time it must have been something but may be you overlooked it.

    you didn't answer my earlier q's. what were the changes that you made to your PC that started these errors. any new hardware...any new memory sticks?
