  1. Hello again TechSpot people!
    I'm having a big problem here.

    I recently bought game Counter-Strike and now here's the problem:
    When i run it,and try to connect to a server ( multiplayer) it loads for a second and then
    what i can see is a BSOD :) .With other games it does not do that.

    Here's what I've been doing to get rid of the problem:

    *I updated BIOS
    *Made Steam ( multiplayer engine ) Crash test
    *Made sfc /scannow test
    *Checked that my graphics card drivers are latest
    *Made Windows Update
    *Updated DirectX
    *Used the Chkdsk scan
    *Used Memtest to check memory

    And still i get the lovely BSOD.

    From BSOD I've been reading the following errors:
    Page not found in nonpaged area;
    IRQL not less or equal

    Something with the following files,too:
    dcmc0d0.dll ( not sure about the c's and 0's )

    I also searched the game support for help,found something,didn't help.
    I posted it here,because i think it must be something with my hardware.
    All help is welcome.

    Mobo: Intel Rock Lake D865PERL

    Counter-Strike does not need Punkbuster.

    Also,a new problem occured,as soon as i switch on my computer , my monitor goes on too,but after like 2 seconds, monitor goes to standby,I already tried another monitor so i think it must be something with videocard..any advices?

    Yeah rollback your drivers to an older version, say two versions ago, and give it a try, if that doesn't work try shutting down all background programs ie "run"/msconfig/startup button. Sometimes that isn't enough so go to system under accessories in the start menu and check out running processes. I found a batch file that shuts down all unecessary background programs while playing games, it works great..... good luck!
