Posted 28 September 2010 - 06:59 PM

So I've had a bit of trouble lately with gaming applications and crashes.

Some of the applications work fine, in fact most work just fine. Occasionally I will get a blue screen on the demo for FIFA 11 PC. The reason I am posting this here, and not a FIFA forum, is that this error is recurring from the past, and occasionally appears in other applications too.

It should be noted my specs are single core and the requirements want dual core. However I have been able to sneak by the requirement in the past for other games such as GTA IV and MLB 2k10 by putting graphics on low or medium, and not maxing anything out. Neither game really has trouble. But the FIFA 11 demo is the most troublesome of all. This demo gives me frequent blue errors whenever I play.

The blue error involves a Paged Fault in Non Paged area. I don't have a clue what this means.

I have had issues with this error before in the past. Previously, I had attempted chkdsk to attempt to fix memory and rectify the issue. The problem was dormant for a while, but with the FIFA 11 demo it has erupted in full force.

I will run the application and it will work fine, but at times it will just go to blue screen in game. Other times it will blue screen after I alt+tab. One thing in common, the computer is a bit slower before the blue screen crashes the computer, which leads me to believe this may be a memory issue.

I am strongly suspicious my computer cannot run this game but just to make sure, what advice would you give to rectify this issue?

The specs are as follows

Processor AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3500+, 2.2 Ghz
RAM 2 gigs
Video Card Nvidia 9500 GT

==============

Here is the bugcheck log.

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x10000050 (0xb87f47d4, 0x00000001, 0x80536a40, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini092710-01.dmp.

Any advice you can give would be appreciated, thanks.

Download and execute Blue Screen View.

When it's displaying the logs:

1. Click Edit -> Select All
2. Click File -> Save Selected Options and save it to your Desktop as "BSOD.TXT".

Double click the BSOD.TXT file on your Desktop and copy and paste it's contents into your next post so we can get more information about your crash history.

It appears your crashes are happening due to problems with your Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N USB driver.

Look on the bottom of your USB Wi-Fi card and look at the model number. Pictures to help you identify it are here. Download and install the appropriate current driver for your card:

WNDA3100v1 Latest Software Version 3.0.0.2
WNDA3100v2 Latest Software Version 1.2

If you have another adapter let me know the model number, I'll help you find the driver.

The problem does not seem to be fixed, as the same driver was responsible for the crashes previously, and is still responsible for a crash today.

The update doesn't change the driver, or seem to change anything at all. The site says the driver is "3.0.0.141", which is the same driver which has crashed the computer.

The update doesn't seem to change the wireless utility either, which is still at 3.0.0.1.

With so much of your hard drive full and surely fragmented, and being so far below spec for reccomended hardware, I would expect a lot of problems with a newer game like Fifa 11, playing from a virtual drive?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Nope

There are so many errors just related to this blue screen that I might as well give up and concede that this computer is not good enough for applications such as FIFA 11 :thumbsup:

Try THIS . It has to be saved to your desktop in order to use it.
Hope this is what your looking for.
1.Download TFC to your desktop, or other location.

2.Save any unsaved work. TFC will close all open application windows.

3.Double-click TFC.exe to run the program.

4.If prompted, click "Yes" to reboot.
Save your work. TFC will automatically close any open programs, let it run uninterrupted. It shouldn't take longer take a couple of minutes, and may only take a few seconds. Only if needed will you be prompted to reboot

NEXT:
Try THIS

Game Booster is an easy-to-use program that shuts down unnecessary system processes in order to improve the performance of resource-thirsty games. With an intuitive interface that makes it easy to switch between gaming mode and normal mode, Game Booster is a simple but powerful program.

Game Booster's interface is basic, with a list of 24 noncritical processes that can be shut down during gaming. Check boxes allow users to select specific processes. It is true that you have to take a leap of faith with some of these; if you're not extremely computer savvy, you may have no idea what it is that you're shutting down. We can say that our system suffered no ill effects from temporarily disabling all of the listed processes, and the program quickly started them again when we switched back to normal mode. We do wish that the program came with a Help file that went into detail about this issue, though. In addition to disabling unnecessary system processes, Game Booster offers a game defragmenter that specifically defragments the game directories, allowing a given game to start and run more quickly. Overall, we found Game Booster to be both easy to use and effective. We noticed a significant difference in game performance when using gaming mode, and we think this is a great choice for users who need to optimize their systems for gameplay.

Also give THIS a shot it a great defragger.

Its not your system its your wireless adapter. Wireless Internet is not meant to be used for gaming.

It is the wireless adapter, however this error continues to occur even with FIFA uninstalled. In fact, I was simply browsing Firefox a few minutes ago when it happened again out of nowhere.

The frustrating thing is, the drivers appear to be updated to the most recent version, according to the links given in this thread. There is no more further updating I can do. I have tried to post on Netgear's forums about the issue but my thread has not gotten a response.

You may have to reformat the computer to get rid of the other wireless card drivers.

"You may have to reformat the computer to get rid of the other wireless card drivers. "

I haven't got a clue why that is, you may have to ask Netgear why their drivers will not uninstall and why you have another wireless card when its not present.
