  1. Hi all,

    I just upgraded my computer to be able to play the latest games...
    My new configuration is as follows

    Mobo : ASUS P5K
    Memory : OCZ 3GB CL4 6400 memory
    Graphic card : ASUS 8800 GT

    When playing COD4, BF2, ... my computer stops with a BSOD after a few minutes.:mad:
    I already installed the latest drivers of the graphic card but that did not help.


    I have attached a few minidumps.
    Can anybody help me to find out what is causing these BSOD's and hopefully point me towards some fix...

    Appreciate the help!

    Uninstall the ASUS enhanced video drivers as they're known to cause problems. Post some more dump files if it continues to crash.

    Problem solved (... I think...)

    Hi,

    i think the problem is solved (I was able to play COD4 for more than an hour and no probs at all...)

    Apparently, the problem was located in the 3GB ram.
    I installed the RAM on banks A1, B1 and A2... It had something to do with dual channel... Anyway, I removed B1 dimm and rebooted with 2 GB of memory. Since then, it never crashed...

    Anyway, thx for tha advice!

    Greetz,
