Random restarts

  1. Hello everybody,

    About a month ago i purchased BF2142. While i was playing it crashed usually everyday, other peoples game crashed as well so i thought nothing of it and waited for the crash. It would usually crash restart and say windows had recovered from a serious error...blah,blah.

    However i started to get these reboots outside of the game. When i reported the error it came back saying it was eiter the CPU, motherboard, memory or PSU that had caused the errors.

    Since then i have about 6 of these errors. My hard disc has started being noisy as well. The one time i have been awake when it has crashed it made a very loud click then restarted, could this be causing the problem?

    I went to the event manager -> system apart from the system errors there were literally hundreds of disk errors with the description:

    "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk2\D."

    The system errors decription was:

    Catagory (102) Event: 1003

    "Error code 0000009c, parameter1 00000004, parameter2 8054d5f0, parameter3 b2000000, parameter4 00070f0f."

    I have had the system for about a year, it is overclocked but has been for a year and has been very stable. As i said this is the first time ive had problems with his pc. (how ever the hard disk is about 3/4 years old).

    I have run chkdsk /f and chkdsk /r
    I have the latest drivers for my motherboard and cpu.

    My system:
    amd 3800X2
    Asus A8N5X nforce 4.
    2 GB Corsair memory.
    x1800XT 512

    Thanks

    I have attached all the minidump files, thanks once again.

    Forgot to mention these crashes occur about every 6 days. Thanks

    It has been a while since it last happened (14 days) i also occasionally get the "data execution prevention" message that says that the code run was to do with windows explorer? The Attatched minidumps are here:

    The 6 most recent dumps are all the same, a CPU error - see below. The first thing to do would be to remove the overclock and see what happens. That's a pretty hefty overclock if the default is 2000MHz.

    BugCheck 9C, {4, 8054d5f0, b2000000, 70f0f}
    Probably caused by : Unknown_Image ( ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE )

    NOTE: This is a hardware error. This error was reported by the CPU
    via Interrupt 18. This analysis will provide more information about
    the specific error. Please contact the manufacturer for additional

    This error is documented in the following publication:
