this is the first pc i built, grabed a magazine that showed a pc build and basicly copied it. the specs are
asus a8n32- sli, amd x2 3800, duel 7900gt, 2 gigs ram 600 watt power supply, 400 gig sata HD only old item is my soundblaster ls.

i put everything together with no problems, when i installed windows i go the bluescreen about 5 minutes into the install. this contined for about 2 hours, finnaly after the 5th install it finnaly started to work. i started to update everything and the computer would restart every 5 minutes. i took a break from it then came back and everything seemed to work with no problems. played BF2 for about 5 hours stait with no problems what aso ever.

as of now the computer plays battlefield 2, cs source, quake 4 and GTR 2 demo with all setting maxed out no problems. i just installed hitman blood money, GTR 2 (Real Game) and crash day. evertime i open these last three games i get a message saying "GTR2 - FIA GT Racing Game has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." of course the game title is differnt in each error but that the only thing.

ive uninstalled them reinstalled them and samething over and over. onlything is i started in safe mode tryed to open GTR2 and instead of that error it said somthign about cant find direct x drivers. so i dont know if directx has anythign to do with this or not.

i ordered a new hard drive which i will install windows on formate my other drive and hopefully all will go well. anyone else have any other suggestions?

thanks.

Often when you get alot of seemingly weird, unexplainable errors, the RAM is to be suspected. I would try some different RAM. Make surethe RAM is compatible with the motherboard.

Also, check your Event Viewer for error messages that may point at the culprit: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

But don;t be surprised if you can't figure out whatsome of the things in the Even Viewer mean. Alot of the messages in there are nearly cryptic! :thumbsup:

Did you overclock anything, especially the Ram on the original setup?

Although Ram can be bad right out of the package.

Make sure you get Ram that is supported by your motherboard.

That's the best thing to do. I said at the begining of this thread that your RAM was bad, and this just proves it.
