Well I just got 3 BSODs in less then one hour and when the BSOD comes up, it shows for half a second then automaticly reboots and I can't even see what the problem is. Anyone know why I a fix or something that will make my BSOD stay a bit longer so I can see whats causing it? Thanks

(edit) Just so you know, the first BSOD happened when I was typing some HW in MS Word, next one happened after I opened FF, and the last one happened at the menu in BF2142.

Not in my house but my friends has an X800 and 7900GS PCIe that they can probably let me borrow, they're right next door too

My computer still runs fine with my current video card, it just automaticly reboots itself after showing the BSOD for like a second.

Also are you using winamp? Does the BSOD happen when using any particular program?

I have winamp installed but it wasn't running with those BSODs happened. And the BSODs just appeared randomly. I'll run BF2142 again and see if the BSOD comes back.

Nope, my computer has been running at the same settings for like month and it was fine, had a few BSODs like once in a while but it happened three times today so im a bit worried. Anyways, it seems to be fine now. I'll run a few games or two and see what happens. I just played a couple rounds of CS:S this afternoon and everything was fine.

I think you need to start at the basics. Take the pc back to all stock, and test to see if it does it again. If it doesn't, then it's a stability issue. If it does do it, then we know hardware or software conflict somewhere.

Check if you have the latest version of Winamp. It was giving me a BSOD because it had bad coding in it, but i doubt it was it because it wasn't running. It might be something you might want to look into. The BSOD could be a numerous amount of things. Do some diagnostics, if you can't slow the screen down so you can read whats wrong. Try Memtest, scan for artifacts, try uninstalling newly install programs. From the ramdomness of whats happening, I'll have to agree with Krunk, it may be your memory, but like i said It could be a numerous amount of different things. Do like Krunk said, back to basics is a good idea.

If you've been having BSODs your OC is possibly unstable. After OCing did you test it out with a program like Prime95 or Orthos?

Ok.. it just happened again. Im going to do a couple of registry scans first and then i'll run at stock and see what happens. BRB.

BTW: The BSOD said: A problem has occured with your computer and needs to shutdown to prevent any more damage to your computer. It didn't give any information about what was causing it but it said "STOP 0x000000008E" and a bunch of other numbers and letters.

Well I just had 2 BSODs at stock settingsk, one at desktop, and another one in FF. Im on my other computer now.. Im thinking its the RAM, im going do a memtest in BIOS and see if that shows up any errors.

After millions of problems... I gotta say... definitely check out the RAM if you can. I've had a lot of problems that end up being RAM-related.

Also, just be aware that RAM can pass a 24 hour mem-test and still be defective. I've done it.

Ya I thought it was something wrong with the RAM at first but im pretty sure now that its my anti-virus program Kaspersky thats causing the BSODs. Apparently I installed some firefox plugins and since they install in the "background" my Kaspersky IS6 would identify it as a trojan thats installing itself stealthly so I would have to click the allow/deny whatever. Whenever I go to click allow, I get a BSOD 5 seconds later.. same thing happened in BF2142 because I just reinstalled it to play and all the server packets, IPs, and stuff trigger Kaspersky's anti-hacker detection. Iv turned my AV off for now and everything works just like before. I even played CS:S and it ran fine, only a tad bit slower since im running at stock lol.

Now the main problem is for me to find out what the hell is wrong with my anti-virus lol.

Going to reboot to my OCed settings.. BRB

Im currently on Window's firewall until I can get Kaspersky fixed lol. My subscription ends in July '07 so maybe after then I'll get something else


And its definitely Kaspersky, I just played BF2142, CS:S, and did all my usual stuff with no BSOD, I open Kaspersky and the blue screen pops up lol.
