Unexpected Error Multiple Apps

  1. I just recently installed Windows XP SP2, and got all the drivers I needed after a complete reinstallation.
    Now, I'm getting Unexpected Error messages on startup on a lot of programs and I cant seem to figure out why.

    Specs:
    nForce4 Mobo (Not sure exactly which tbh)
    AMD 3500+
    Gforce9800GTX
    1gbDDR

    In case its a driver I'm missing
    I installed:
    Video Drivers
    Mobo Drivers
    Directx (Most games refuse to work)
    Updated Windows (ie, latest Netframework etc)

    Sooo, yeah. Help would be great : D

    Well the first is to check RAM correct?
    But I run one of my games (Lineage 2) fine, so I dunno about the ram. I'll run the other check now though.

    I'm leaning towards Ram

    A clean install should not have files missing, unless hardware fault I feel
    You could also try re-installing clean again

    Harddrive test came back clean.
    So i guess Im screwed then? Ram could be the only other reason?


    Edit: If one of the games runs fine, shouldn't ram be out of the question? :3

    Rams fine. Just to double check I switched out the ram for a different stick and im having the same problem.


    Read in a past thread that using eventviewer in commandprompt and putting the error number here would help so.

    "Faulting application sins of a solar empire.exe, version 1.0.0.1, faulting module sins of a solar empire.exe, version 1.0.0.1, fault address 0x00036760."

    The solution they give is to play with the spell slider at low. But this is happening with tons of my games.
