Hi BC, I'm posting this because I'm having problems with games randomly crashing on my computer. It's happened with a few games I'll be playing and all of a sudden the game will crash and I'll get the "program has stopped working" notification, or a blue screen. I really have no idea where to start with this one so I'll just post some system specs and anything else as needed. So far this has happened with Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age Origins, and Oblivion.

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 processor
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Graphics Card: NVidia GeForce GT 240

Hi Brandon and welcome to the forum!

Check the manufacturers website for known issues or patches
In the beginning there was the command line.

Also check for driver updates, i've had many a game that would fail because of outdated/wrong drivers(I don't know what my brother or dad do when they install these I thnk they just hit whatever comes up first...).

When looking at game sites for issue especially pay attention to known 64bit issues. 64bit has made an incredible push to become the norm lately and some issues can come up with gameplay(Diablo2 on a 64 bit machine used to run so fast as to be unplayable).

Hope that helps a little

We must be the change we want to see
