  1. Hello,
    I recently reformatted my pc and now games that have always worked for me are now getting a blank bsod every time i play them after only a few minutes. I have reinstalled my drivers an updated them. The temp is decent. I cant figure out why. Every game I play(UT2004, Oblivion, Battlefront II, FEAR) will crash except for some reason GTA San Andreas, works fine. After the reformatt before I could test any games my friend accidentally pulled the plug on my pc while it was idleing in windows, I don't know if this is the cause. I have also tried disabling 3d sound. Here are my last minidumps and my specs.

    Biostar I915P-A7 Mobo
    Intel P4 3.2
    1G ram
    ATI X800Pro
    thermaltake 430W PSU

    Any help would be MUCH appreciated, thank you.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    All your minidumps crash at SaiNtBus.sys. This is the Saitek driver.

    Try updating the drivers for your Saitek equipment.
