Oblivion crash on new game, help please

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I've spent about 4 hours now searching for ways to get the Steam version of Oblivion GOTY to work on my PC. Its a self built PC, here are some stats.

AMD Phenom II X4, 965 3.4ghz
HIS AMD Radeon 6850
8GB RAM

I have more than enough power to run the game. However, everytime I take my first step, or punch something it crashes. I can get through the opening video and character creation just fine. I can even looking around without issue, I just cannot move.

I have the unofficial oblivion patches installed, and it crashes with or without them.

I get these details in the Windows error message from each time it crashes to the desktop.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: Oblivion.exe
Application Version: 1.2.0.416
Application Timestamp: 462392c7
Fault Module Name: StackHash_27c8
Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Offset: f07d8df0
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
Additional Information 1: 27c8
Additional Information 2: 27c8ce5af7a07bedf550bd9c573901b3
Additional Information 3: e56e
Additional Information 4: e56e9cfaf3cd1084b6b4c016d12ce64c

I have tried to do a clean boot, with everything disabled except for the Microsoft services, Norton AV, and of course, Steam.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Try running it with Norton Antivirus off. Norton is a horrible antivirus anyways. You shouldn't be using it.

Oh believe me I ******* hate it. They charged my credit card from when I got it for my grandmother a few years back. They wouldn't reverse the charges, so I figured I'd rather put my $50 to work.

I'll try turning it off.

I did an uninstall of Norton, and a reboot of my PC. Same crashing issue, and same error.

Get rid of Norton and use AVG less resources used & more affordable too.
How many and what kind of mods have you installed in that game?
Do you have After burner installed on your computer?

I found the issue, I needed to disable background sounds and music as there is obviously a codec conflict issue somewhere.

I've searched google but haven't had much luck as far as Windows 7 goes. Any idea how to make Oblivion run with sound and not crash?

What codecs do I need to adjust?

I never had to mess around with codecs for Oblivion. You might have to re-install the game, but you cant really do that because you got the game off of steam.

Having over 40 mods in oblivion everything from music, armor, weapons, ridable dragons, islands, houses, people, enemies, body guards....I never had to mess around with codecs for the game.

Even for music all I did was download some new fighting music and drop it in Oblivion-music-fighting music folder or whatever then it worked ok cause it just cycles through whatever is there on an up to down order in the file.

IF you have codec prgoram installed on your PC, try removing them and re-installing it but make sure you defragment your PC so everything is neatly filed correctly that way you can avoid error spaces on your hard drive (just incase that seems to be the problem)
nighty night ; )

I uninstalled about 4 times before, believe me.

I found the issue, it was with my Xonar DG soundcard. I just uninstalled the driver for it (it was a secondary soundcard for my 5.1 headset that I use in shooters.) I'll just mobo's built in sound while playing Oblivion.

Thanks for the suggestions all, and I am now happy to say I can devote 200 hours into Oblivion

yeah...I didnt have a sound card playing oblivion nor do I plan on getting one.
Cause from what I looked into and heard is that it's not all that demanding for cpu's to run audio in games. A sound card really is not needed unless your really into messing around with audio but by then someone would need a $125 sound card.

imo games would kind of be unmarketable on pc if they were required to have a sound card.
