I just got a brand new computer built. ati radeon HD 2600 XT,Amd antlon 64 x2 dual core 5200, 2 gig of ram, raid hardrive setup. All my drivers are completely up to date. When i play Counterstike source or hl2 it runs real smooth. Just when I go to exit to the desktop i get a blue screen O Death
. I thought hl2 would be different and it was only css, so i tried playing that . Went for 15 minutes great gfx everything no lag, then it hit a loading screen and boom bsod
. When i get it it gives me an error that says something like this.
Problems caused by:win32k.sys
Disable bios memory operations such as caching or shadowing
Tech info: *stop: 0x00000050(0xe1126304,0x00000000,0xbf89412b,0x00000001)
*win32k.sys_adress bf39412b base at bf800000, date stamp 45f013f6
I don't know what anything means there . My grandfather built my computer , I don't know bios or anything.I already posted twice on the steam support forums, and so far noone knows anything.
There is one thing i found on there but don't understand what its trying to tell me.
I get this error: 'Page Fault Found In A Non Paged Area' what is causing this?
Anytime Windows says there is a PAGE or DATA error then the problem is almost certainly a memory issue.
There are several possible causes for the following types of error messages:
Page Fault Found In A Non Paged Area BSOD's
Memory Dump BSOD's
(BSOD = "Blue Screen of Death")
BIOS Caching Enabled
The first thing to do is make sure that EPROM CACHE is disabled in the BIOS. If this is enabled, some versions of Windows can get confused and might display the BSODs randomly.
In fact, for Windows XP (home or Pro) you should disable all BIOS caching options, XP does not use these caching features at all.
If this option isn't set or turning it off doesn't fix the BSOD (or your motherboard doesn't have this option) then the next most likely cause is one of the memory modules.
If someone can please help me. I'd greatly appreciate it.Thank you.
