  1. Been getting blue screens fairly often while playing a game called Aion, made lots of driver updates but continue to get them. Posting my latest minidumps since I haven't made any changes. Here's the actually error, can make follow up posts detailing all I have updated if unable to find anything. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    All errors are 0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
    A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

    I read the five most recent and 4 simply stated ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE.

    The remaining one listed the Vista driver volsnap.sys as the cause of your issue. Normally OS drivers are too general to be of much help but there is a lot on the 'net concerning this driver and one way to fix it is to replace it.

    Perhaps Microsoft has a hotfix or you might have to do a Windows repair.

    A little info about your system might help , as well as any overclocks you might be running ..

    Thanks for the replies i'll have to go read up on the error involving the volsnap.sys, unable to find anything helpful so far on a quick look, but will continue reading. Unsure of how to just replace the file with a windows repair, attempted putting the vista install CD as a boot CD and it got to the first greenish vista screen and nothing would load (probably unrelated issue). As far as my system makeup is as follows.

    ASUS P5K PRO LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W
    G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
    EVGA 512-P3-N801-AR GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
    Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA
    550W Antec Power Supply

    Video card is running at default which is 600 core, just have the fan maxed to 100.
    CPU is also still factory settings.If OCCT is correct it's saying my cpu frequency is at 2000 with a bus frequency of 334. So it's currently under clocked.

    Don't know if this helps but all of the blue screens are very random sometimes I won't get them for 3 days, sometimes I will get 2 in one 30 minute span of time. Maybe related to amount of play time in the game possibly or possibly just completely random.

    Well once again thanks for any help, I can provide 2 more dumps from earlier tonight if this helps any. Really appreciate anything you can do, looks like I might have to do a fresh install sadly, but we shall see.
