  1. Hey there people of techspot!

    I am having a rather inconvenient issue with my computer. I very often get a blue screen in some specific applications. The applications it involves are 3d applications/games, things that take a bit of power from the machine. Now it doesnt always happen, and sometimes i can play fine, and sometimes it occurs after a short period of gaming. Its all varied and theres no way of knowing when its gone happen next.

    My system

    Power supply: Enermax 460W
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850
    Motherboard: Abit Fatal1ty fp-in9
    Memory: 2x1Gb Crucial Ballistix ddr2 6400 & 2x1gb Kingston hyperX ddr2 6400
    Video Card: XFX Geforce 8800GTS 512MB Alpha dog edition


    Everything is at stock speeds!

    The last error message i got :

    Basically what im hoping for is some pointers in the right direction because this is really bugging me, i built this computer 6 months ago, and i want it to be pefect.

    Thanks in advance for any help i can get!

    regards

    I've been getting this too very randomly. Look at my specs... Very similar to yours. I'm leaning towards the XFX drivers for Vista. What OS are you running?

    Your PSU may be the cause of the problem, with PSU problems, it's more of a "flavor-of-the-day" sort of issue where you may start getting hardware failures of BSODs out of nowhere. Is this hardware new or has your rig been stable with this PSU for quite some time now? You do seem to have very high end computer parts for a 460W PSU is my inquiry.

    Well the computer has been running stable on and off.. And like i said, its with high load that it fails, ive checked if there is heat problems. but no.. But the problem with crashing has been there since the start i think.
