Blue Screen - When Watching A Movie, Or Playing A Video Game


Ive had this problem for the past 5 days or so, before then everything was fine. What happens is after 15 minutes of watching a movie, or playing a video game i get a blue screen of death. If i just surf and read text it doesn't seem to happen, or as much. This is incredibly annoying as i pulled my computer apart and back together again, and removed the hard drive and formatted another and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 on it just to try to fix the problem, and it still remains. I tried switching between 2 identical 2 gig ram sticks, and the same problem happens so i doubt it's the ram. The error that comes up changes, sometimes it's " fault_in_nonpaged_area ", sometimes it's fltmgr.sys, or irql_driver_not_less or_equal"

Screen Keeps Flashing When Watch Movie Or Play Game

While trying to watch a movie or play a game at night my screen keeps flashing it seems to only happen when the aircon is on it is kinda hard to click on anything when the screen recovers as once i click on an icon its starts the flashing again the memory and other devices have been checked and fine but the last thing is the graphics card. I have a nvidia fx5200 128mb old i know and before i attempt to change it i would like to know if anyone else has come across the same issue in my past computer i had a nvida fx5500 that also given me problems but in a different manner. So again i am looking to hear if this has happen to anyone else and if they know of a fix because if it turns out to be the card that has had problems i have another 14 computers to sort out.

Blue Screen While Playing Hl2 Ep2

I got blue screen while playing hl2 ep2 + texture mod. Does this look like a ram issue? Motherboard? Vista? Psu? I asked someone, and they told me it is most likely ram related. But i tried memtest twice, and no errors came up. Games still crash for me even if my vid card is at 63 degrees c. Cpu never goes above 60 either. No artifacts found in furmark. If anyone can figure out what the cause of this blue screen is, that would be very helpful. Specs:
Vista 64 bit
Gtx 260
Antec earth watts 500
Amd phenom x4 9950 black edition
Corsair xms2 twin2x4096-6400c5 4gb
Asus m3n78 pro atx am2+
Wd 1tb sata 2 hard drive
Samsung dvd/cd rw drive

Crash When Watching Full Screen Flash Video

Win 7 64bit, radeon 5850, cat 9. 10. This is happening on hulu.com, where on full screen, the screen goes black after a while, but the audio is still playing. Recovering back to windows is almost impossible as the windows don't draw correctly even after windows automatically drops aero rendering. Even in window mode, flash video playback is a little blocky/fuzzy with some stuttering. Anyone else with similar issues that may be related to the video card?

Computer Blue Screen, Now No Video From 3850

Card is dead correct? I'm a tad lazy to do some testing, but i'm going to assume the card is no good anymore. On the plus side maybe i can give my sister my 8800gtx for $60 and i can get a 4870 or something.

Dual Monitor - Watch A Movie And Play Game At Same Time

I was wondering if there was any way for me to be able to play a full screen game like counterstrike source, and watch a movie with an s-video plug on my tv at the same time. I tried it and when the game loads on my main monitor while the movie is running on my tv, the movie re-adjusts itself and doesn't fit onto the tv correctly (a part of the video is cut off). Am i doing something wrong, or is it not even possible to do this?

System specs are:

Athlon xp 3200+
1gb pc 3200 ram
Radeon 9800 pro video card.

Artifacting / Crashing When Starting Any Game / Full Screen Video

Really strange problem i've been having for a month. Whenever i run any game or a video in full screen or semi full screen, the computer instantly comes up with a screen full of artifacting for about 10 seconds, then restarts the computer. I've run cpu z, gpu z, and realtemp to see if there was some kind of thermal issue but the gpu core never goes above 58 before a crash, cpu sits at 32-38. All the ram has already been swapped out along with the power supply, hard drive and im in a very large and fan friendly case. At one point if i didn't restart the computer it wouldn't give me any trouble, but now it doesn't matter how many parts i re-seat or how many times i reboot, it happens every time without fail. Nothing appears in the windows event logs, and there are no blue/green screens. This has happened in windows vista 32-bit and windows xp pro so the os has nothing to do with it. I don't want to drop 500 bucks on a new vid card if i don't have to and i don't have a spare board or vid card laying around for further testing. Rig: bfg gtx 280, vista 32-bit home prem, 4*1gig dual chan, 650watt psu, intel core 2 duo e8400 3. 0ghz, systemboard: asus p5q series

Not overclocking, all bios/firmware updates installed, drivers have been updated and down-dated to newer/older versions.

Stuttering Problem While Playing A Game

Out of the blue, i started having this stuttering problem while i was playing a game. It never happened before, so i closed the game thinking that it was the program, but now its even windows that has been acting this way. My mouse seems to skip across the screen and my music is stuttering. I ran virus/adware scans even registry mechanic to see if they might fix it. Nothing. I decided to restart my pc, and noticed the windows loading screen taking about 4-8 minutes to finish loading. It seems to stutter when applications are being opened or loading content. I have a feeling it might be either my ram or hd that is the problem.

Computer Locked Up While Playing A Game

My computer locked up while playing a game. When i rebooted the machine it went to the screen that gives you the option to boot in safe mode, but locked up on this screen as well. I rebooted again and my monitor will not come out of safe mode. As it stands. My rig turns on like normal with no beeps, all fans, lights, drives etc are working properly. Rig will not post and monitor will not come out of safe mode. Monitor is working properly with another computer and i tested the internal speaker by taking out the ram and booting, which produced beeps. Any ideas?

Computer Beeps And Resets When Playing Old Game

When i tried to play the old game of myst after a few minutes my computer would always beep and crashed (instantly reset). I have award bios and accordgin to some websites the alternating high/low beeps i heard one or two seconds before the crash means exactly: "either the cpu is not seated properly or the cpu is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the cpu fan or bios settings for proper fan speed. " I don't know why it only did that with the crappy old game of myst. I do crazy things with my pc and my temps are always fine even with my oc. Once i got a look at the temps while it was beeping like that and they were perfectly nomal (for me 56 is normal, and my warning beep is set to 66 and i know the beep is different anyways) so guys, was myst doing something bad to my cpu or is something wrong with my computer? Well also just wondering cuz i went back to stock speeds and myst works fine? When it was oc'd it survived stressprime for a few hours before i decided it was enough and it never crashed on me.

Freeze / Glitch When Playing Halo Game

I recently obtained halo for pc. From time to time a weird glitch would occur (usually when a grenade exploded or too many characters were on the screen at once); the action would freeze for several moments, and the sound heard at the moment the glitch occurred would repeat three to six times before the game resumed. I bought a new 512 ram chip hoping the issue would be resolved, but no such luck. I've played through the entire game now, simply dealing with this sporadic issue. I was told by a forum goer in the computer games forum that i needed a new video card to solve my problem. However, i am now uncertain this is the answer. I just popped in tes morrowind for the first time in a while, and now this game is suffering from the same issues halo did (it never had this issue before, for the months that i played it). The doom legacy is doing the same thing, which makes no sense. I am simply wondering if anyone can help me figure this out; did i do something wrong when installing the new ram chip?

Computer Only Freezes When Watching A Video

Any time i watch a video (blu-ray, dvd, internet video, divx from any hard drive), my computer will freeze. Sometimes 5mins into watching, other times a lot longer. I have world of warcraft installed on a secondary hdd in raid 0 and i can run that all day with out any issues. I have checked to see if anything is scalding hot inside the comp, but nothing is. Is it memory? Hdd? Video cards?

Things i have tried: memory tests. All say their "fine"; smartcheck don't get me started on that program as it is very user un-friendly

Monitor Keep Going Dark While Watching Video

Why does my desktop monitor keep going dark while i'm watching video? & No it is not my power saving settings!?

Note:this has nothing to do with power saving settings, i have my display to never turn of nor sleep! The light on the monitor indicates that it in fact is still on but theres nothing i can do to bring it back on unless i can close or pause any video streaming. If i'm watching anything on wmp i can turn the display back on by hitting the play/pause button but youtube or anything else is harder to do. What is wrong? My specs are as follow:

Nvidia geforce gtx 220
Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit
Amd atholon(tm) 64 x2 dual core processor 6000+ 3. 00 gh

Computer Shut Off When While Playing Intense Graphics Game

Usually while playing an intense graphics game, my computer will make a click sound and just shut off to a black screen (monitor and computer lights still on but black screen). I usually get this problem about once a night. After reading for months now, over time i have replaced the graphics card to an nvidia geforce 6800 gs from an fx 5200. I also keep my computer case open with a housefan blowing inside (hahaha), so i am pretty sure there is no overheating problem like people suggest a lot, and today, i bought a whole new power supply, upgrading from a 250w to a 400w. I managed to go all evening with no crashes and i thought i fixed it, but just a minute ago, while having wow minimized and playing music, i got the same old click n' crash to a black screen. Basically everything has been replaced since i got this computer about 3 years ago aside from the hdd (120 gb) and processor (athlon xp 2600+) and the motherboard (which i don't know a lot about). If anyone has any ideas as to what's causing this, help please! I am posting this before i go to sleep, and i'll be back to check tomorrow.

Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 Won't Render Movie

Why wont sony vegas movie studio 9 render my movie? I've tried everything. I either get a message that says that i don't have enough memory left, it freezes, or it just closes. I first tried to render it hd, but now i've just given up and i just need it rendered, at any quality. After it said i didn't have any memory left and that i should close some windows, i closed every window i had open other than movie studio. Then i deleted a bunch of my old ms movies to clear room. But it still won't work. Every time i try to just publish it directly to youtube, it immediately freezes. But most of the time, it just won't work. The elapsed time ticker will continue to go, but nothing else will. It makes no progress. It's a little over 8 minutes long and it was shot on an hd camcorder.

Computer Shut Down When Playing Highly Intense Graphic Game

While playing a highly intense graphic game, the computer decided to shut down. Not soon after the smell of melting plastic permeated the room. We knew it was bad, and just let the computer rest, unplugged it from its ac source, and hoped for the best. About an hour later we booted it up again, and the tower fan started running (easily seen on the side of the case), and everything was working as it should, booting up, logging onto windows, even got to see the desktop for like a couple of seconds. And then, it shut down. You could still smell the nasty melting plastic, but that mighta just been a residual smell.

Screen Freezes When Load Browser Page With Flash Movie

When i load a browser page that has flash movie, or if i load up guild wars, then the computer will completely lockup, the screen freezes, mouse/keyboard dont work, hard drive light is one solid color, and it remains like that forever, until i turn it off and back on. The weird thing is when i hit the reset button it actually wont make the screen freeze go away i hear/see the cd drives doing the power reset, but the frozen image still remains on the screen!

But when i power off and power on, it boots up again. Sometimes it will freeze again right away, other times it will happen after say 10+ hours of use. Anyone know what could be causing this? Mem test reported 0 errors. Prime95 wasnt crashing either. I'm thinking maybe its the video card?

Mouse Freeze While Playing Video Games

I have a microsoft optical wheel mouse and it just started to freeze on me and while playing video games it only moves up or down not enabling you to move sideways. After 10 seconds or so it goes back to normal. My os is win xp. I have been using this mouse for 2 years with no problem till now. When the mouse freezes my pc, i have to reboot . The bottom of the mouse is not red , which means the optical light is not working. I also get an error in windows which says usb device not working or something of that nature. I tried to use the ps/2 converter and still the mouse locks up. Also when the mouse locks up i get a ringing sound in windows.

Pc Goes To Xp Load Screen Then Into Blue Screen

I have a laptop that when it boots it goes to the xp load screen for about 2 seconds and then a blue screen of love. I ran a linux boot disk to try to trouble shoot it but we couldn't get it to see the drive. I bought a sata 2. 5 drive enclosure and hooked it up to my other computer with the laptop drive in it and it can't see it. The drive gets warm but thats all. I pulled my other laptop drive out and put it into the drive enclosure and it worked fine. What can i do? What options do i have to see if this is still a good drive? Does this mean the drive is dead? Do i need to load drivers? Can i force mount it? Any thoughts?

Keep Getting Blue Screen

I have just built a new p. C, it is an amd athlon 3700+ 64 bit processor, 1gig of ddr ram an ati radeon x550 256mb gamers edition video card and an 80gig hdd (i'll be putting another 80gig on soon). The motherboard is an asus a8n-e. The problem i'm having is it keeps going to a blue screen at any time it feels like it and i get the following msg stop 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbfbc73df, 0xa8b83940, 0x00000000) atiduag.dll address bfbc73df base @ bfac7000 datestamp 4420c719. It also tells me that i should try a bios update or change my adapter or update the drivers. I wrote to ati, they said to uninstall all ati stuff from the p. C restart, turn the antivirus off and install the newest driver. I have done this but still get the same msg. I have yet to update the bios as i'm not sure what i'm doing in that area. I gather the problem is with the file atiduag.dll but i'm not sure what to do about it. I also wanted to go in, in safemode but don't know what buttons to push to get into safe mode. Del gets me into setup and f8 gets me into the boot setup. I'm still not sure if it's a video card prob or a motherboard prob, but i do know it needs fixing. If anyone has any ideas, could they please help me out as i'm getting rather frustrated. I'm also not using the catalyst control center at the moment.

Refusal To Sell A Video Game

A couple of days ago i went into a video game store with my little brother. He's 17 but doesn't have his license yet because he just turned 17 and where i live you cant get your license to drive by yourself till you turn 17. But anyway, he wanted to buy a game that was rated m, which everyone knows that you can't buy it unless your 17+. He brought it to the counter and the lady asked him for his id. He told her he didn't have one and then i asked her could i buy it because i had my id and i'm 18. She told me that i couldn't buy it because it was going to be for him and that he was underaged. I left and went back to the same store without him and tried to purchase it and the same lady told me i couldn't buy it because it was for my brother and he was underage. So my question is, can she refuse to sell me the video game even if i'm 18? I work in a grocery store and we can't sell cigarettes to minors but we can't refuse to sell them to someone who is over 18 even if we suspect they are for a minor. The only thing we can do is report them.

Video Game Maker Software

Me and my friends are wanting to make a video game. We to get pretty serious and make beta's and stuff and advertise and then finally start selling it and if it gets big enough (which it probably won't) then sell it to other game companies. I want to know a good one. Not one of those were you place trees and stuff and everything's pre-made. I want one where you make it from scratch. I want it to be somewhat easy considering not many of us have much game experience. One of them i think is pretty good at computers and i can learn and catch on pretty fast. As long as there are good tutorials online or something. I also want one where all of us could use it. Most software's have a code you enter so you can only have it on one computer. Is there anyway where you can all have a shared account, or even better, linked accounts where you each have your own account but if youe edit a level or something it will still be edited on the other accounts. You know what i mean. Please help, we really want to do this. We know it will take a while to make.

Best Video Game System For Money

I am in my late 40s and have not had a video game system since the atari ! So i want to ask the experienced video gamers out there, for someone like me, who does not want to spend a fortune, but wants a good system that will play the new games and not break on me in 3 months or overheat & turn into a matchstick (which i heard some do) - i am into mainly the action, shoot-em up type games, probably will get games like call of duty, things where i can shoot & blow lots of things up - i grew up (don't laugh i am old, i know) on the old original shooter games like wolfenstein, blake stone, doom, etc

So thats my type of game - also in addition to recommending the best game box for the money, can you recommend some really good video game cartridges that i could buy - things in that action, shoot-em, adventure, violence genre, like call of duty, similar to that type.

Flickering Screen In Game

I initially posted this in the gaming forum but that ended up being the wrong spot. I recently tried loading up knights of the old republic to pass the long nights with my new baby but have been getting a flickering in the game. It happens in the menus and the game, but not during the cut scene videos. Video card is an old, agp, radeon x1950 pro, and the rest of the machine is standard, older stuff - a64 3200. I'm pretty sure i've played the game on this card before but the os is new since i last played it; upgraded xp to win 7 rc. I've tried switching to different resolutions and refresh rates, v-sync on and off, changing the various dvi settings in the catalyst control center; nothing has made any difference. Any ideas would be super.
