Hello, if this its in the wrong section I apologize, however I do not believe this to be a game specific issue. When playing a select few games (most notably Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 on multiplayer, Half Life 2 and a couple others) I will be anywhere from a few minutes to a couple hours into the game and I get a BSOD with no text. I restart and everything is fine, until I play another game. Counterstrike Source works just fine, as does Battlefield 2 and 2142 on single player, Combat Arms, World of Warcraft, and F.E.A.R. I cleaned out the inside of my case for dust and stuff with canned air, and I swapped my two 512MB RAM chips because it seemed like a RAM error to me (heavy resource games are the only ones doing it) and instead of 1024MB of ram my computer showed only 512MB of ram. Ok so my RAM was bad. i went to Fry,s and bought a two pack of 1GB sticks of DDR3200 RAM and a ThermalTake Northbridge chipset cooler (the fan on the stock cooler was almost gone I figured it might be another problem). Installed both and it still does it. Next I thought it might be old or bad drivers, so I found all the updated drivers (my ATI card, motherboard chipset and sound card), still doing it. I looked in the BIOS and all the temperatures and voltages were just fine (temperatures were 47C for CPU and 49C for chipset). I looked in the event viewer and here are the errors I get:

I am running a AMD Athalon 2800+ on an Abit KV7 motherboard with a Ati 9600XT and now 2GB of DDR3200, a 500watt power supply a 300GB and a 70GB HDD and Windows XP Pro SP2, I have not yet tried re-installing Windows, because I am currently running a hacked version until I can get my friends disk (mine shattered in my DVD-ROM drive)

Any help will be greatly appreciated since I cannot afford a new computer right now, if I can just get this one to hang on a couple more months or so you guys will make me a very happy man

...I am currently running a hacked version...


Unfortunately Bleeping Computer cannot provide support for illegal copies of Windows and other software. From the forum rules:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.


In addition to the legal issues, hacked software doesn't follow normal programming rules. So it's not easy to fix a problem if it caused by consequences of the "hack".

This topic is closed. Should you reinstall Windows using a legal copy with your legal product key we'll be glad to provide assistance.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
