I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My SSD died, bought a new one and put it in. Now I am getting BSOD's, randomly while gaming. Some times after 1 min, some times several hours. I have no idea what is causing this. I have gotten one or two BSOD's in the past 3 and a half year with this rig, but not 3 in the course of 1 and a half day.

I have attached 3 minidumps. I have no idea what to do with these files. I am also unable to to even write down the error message on the BSOD itself, as it's only really up for 2 seconds max, and I am unable to reproduce the error at will.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Win7 Pro
i7 950

Sabertooth X58
GTX580 with newest drivers. Tried older as well, same issue.

I think its a fairly good device for the price. I asked a simular topic, and they pointed me out that 2gb dedicated RAM is not really the biggest bottle neck. (I could chose between 1Gb and 2Gb dedicated)

I found a year old thinkpad with 8 GB RAM and other nice specs for $320 and in perfect condition allegedly, but someone else snagged it before I could.

I know alienwares are good.. I found a m14x for $700. Is that good?

But looking at something and cheaper, maybe $500? (used or new) what would be good? Looking for lots of RAM and good processor/ video card. Something I could game on. Also something with a webcam and not design-flawed. (i.e, the fan built near the bottom so it over-heats unless it's raised up) Also something with long battery life would be ideal.

Thanks you for your advice.

Good video will cost more than $500. All laptops come with webcams. Almost all have fans on the bottom. Where else would they put them? Some higher priced more portable laptops have side vents because they're thinner.

Hello
My laptop has two regular harddrives, one of which I rarely use. So I am thinking to transfer the files and documents that I don't regularly access to the unused harddrive and transfer the OS and programs to a 250 gb SSD that can be installed internally.

I have been looking online, but it seems that the cost of a 250gb ssd may not be low enough for my tastes. I am wondering if anyone knows what brands or models I should be focusing on and whether anyone is aware of very good deals.

Hello there,

I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but I thought under the games section would eb most beneficial.

I have recently bought a server from HFBServers which is a 50 slot DayZ Mod Arma 2 Server.
The server is running fine and I'm happy with the service so far.

I am really looking for someone to help me install custom scripts into the server as it is proving a tad too difficult for me to do alone.

I have followed instructions in the tutorials given but using a slightly more wizardy service i'm unsure where all files and folders are kept.

If anyone could help I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks in advance,

Craigus

Hi
 
Since you are not getting any blue screens when playing any other games, your system will be probably okay. Mods are done by third parties and it is highly likely there may be serious bugs in the mod. I checked the official site and this mod is even not in beta stage. It is still a alpha release so i don't wonder in the crashes.You may contact the developer of the mod for possible resolution.

Hello Community,
So I just played DayZ for like 2 hours and my laptop overheats and now there's something wrong with my videocard. It's a 580m nvidia, when i try to play a video or play games now it just reboots. Any suggestions to the fix? I have the BSOD from SF DIagnostics tool here. I think my video card could be fried... however if there are any ways to test this theory out. Please feel free to speak anything. Thank you for reading/replying to this thread.

Dont know if its the right place to post but I started playing Dayz standalone again after one of the updates (0.52). It now feels like the game is unplayable. Before i had playable frames to the point i never felt the need to play with a fps counter now playing i can get 10 fps in citys or next to structures and 250 fps looking at sky and about 20 - 40 fps everywhere else. Surely this isn't good for the machine? The frames are never steady and it wasn't as bad as this before the update, any suggestions?

Will i cause myself more problems/damage trying to play it like this?
Also i keep seeing everywhere this is because my computer is AMD is this true?

(As for Arma 2 Dayz Mod 10fps i just gave up)

No .dmps included in your reports. Did you delete them with ccleaner? Please refrain from using ccleaner during troubleshooting; it deletes the logs we need to determine what the problem was.

MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner/Kombustor is known to cause instability with systems. Please remove the software. Software overclocking does not provide reliable overclocking. Overclocking should be accomplished through the BIOS or through the graphics card manufacturer's software.

I personally do not recommend 3rd party defrag tools. I have seen them damage restore points and even cause blue screen crashes. Windows has some nice command line flags for the defrag command that will accomplish the same tasks as 3rd party programs. The -b and -w flags will defrag boot files and the boot registry items as well as compact the data to the center of the disk for faster access.defrag c: -b
defrag -c -v -w
The first command optimizes boot performance for the Windows drive by defragmenting boot files and boot registry items.

The second command includes all drives on the system through the -c command and optimizes the drives by compacting the data to the center of the disk. Verbose output through the -v option is optional to provide the user with more information about the defrag tasks. The commands have to be run in an elevated command prompt. To run in an elevated command prompt, follow the instructions at Command Prompt: Frequently Asked Questions and expand the section under

A:Windows 7 x64 5GB RAM still running Dayz slow

Hello SOR and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not trying to be nit-picky here, but it would help to know exactly what is slow. Is boot time slow? Shut down time? Opening web pages? Accessing files? Video or audio lagging when playing games? Downloading files from internet? Depending on what the issue is might determine a specific course of action to try and fix it.

In the meantime, you could try doing basic maintenance chores like running a full virus scan, disk cleanup, defrag, check disk, system file checker scan, etc.

You could also follow the suggestions in this tutorial on how to optimize Windows 7. (Not every suggestion will apply. Feel free to pick and choose if you think it might help. But keep track of any changes you make to your computer so you can undo something if it turns out not to help.)

Hi sevenforums

At my wits end. After running and passing every single test I can find I'm at a loss as to why my new rig bombs a few mins into playing Arma 2 / DayZ standalone.

. I ran Memtest 86+ and completed 4 passes
. Finished the Burn-in test on Furmark
. Finished Prime95... err
. Ran Chkdsk /R on Sata and SSD

After reading a similar post the only thing I can think of is my Belkin Wireless N has slightly ropey drivers but I have the right version installed according to the website.

Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

So, can someone please help me find out whats causing the bluescreen/reboot? It can happen after 2 min or even 1 hour of playing DayZ. Still no sign of bluescreen/reboot when playing Arma2.

This are the pc specs:

Got a brand new 850w cosair psu aswell, so its not lack of power at least.

Memory test done. And I've installed the newest Nvidia driver.

Cpu is water cooled, so no problems with the temp.

Hi, I'm getting seemingly random BSOD's. The text says something about cdd.dll, I've googled it but it seems to be very individual and a diag is almost always requested so I attached my dumps here. Thanks in advance!

I have attached the minidump's and I have attached a screenshot of the last bsod.

So when I play DayZ standalone, and am Using teamspeak 3, I can load the main menu of the game, browse servers, and all that jazz just fine. Once I've loaded into a server, I can count on a BSOD within 3 or so minutes. I've tried playing without teamspeak, that doesn't seem to help with my issue.

I'm using the latest drivers as of a couple weeks ago, and everything was running fine until yesterday. I've no idea what the problem is.

A:BSOD playing DayZ standalone. Attached SFdebugFile

Is there any particular reason that you're not using UEFI or SecureBoot? I only ask to see if there were problems with it. DO NOT enable it now - only do that if you're reinstalling Windows later on.

MSI Afterburner (along with Riva Tuner and EVGA Precision) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys). Please un-install them immediately!

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

Out of 9 memory dumps there were 5 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers) - and older systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.





NOTE: these symptoms were from the previous release of OverDrive. The new release uses the same driver name, but is dated from 4 November 2013.





Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.



Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.



Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. DO NOT uninstall the programs related to these 2 drivers. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

In regards to OEM...it's always been that way. You don't get retail support with an OEM license.

As for the $20...that depends. Some grey-market sites have keys for sale, but whether they're legit or not is another question.

Hey Greg,
Take a look at Newegg. The OEM version of Windows 7 Home premium is available for 100$. And you will notice little difference between all versions of Windows 7 as far as gaming goes. Your other PC components like motherboard, gpu, processor, RAM etc determines the gameplay experience.

Laptops are very difficult to upgrade. If money was no object, you might be able to do something, but practically speaking you are stuck with what you have.

There are "gaming" laptops, but they are quite expensive compared to a desktop. And they are prone to high temperatures and expensive to repair.

Sometimes there are super deals on software if someone knows where to find it, like Acronis True Image 11 someone here told me about for only $10.

Now I'm looking for Nero 9. I have version 7 Ultra so I think I qualify for their upgrade to 9 for $49.99; but, is there a cheaper way that anyone here knows of?

I need a version that runs on Vista Ultimate Service Pack 1.

I'v got a Vista machine here that is hungry. I thought Vista was expensive; but, it pales in comparison to the software and hardware it has trashed.

Nero:
I've been running Nero 7 Ultra and I'm satisfied with it. What is the first edition of Nero Ultra that supports Vista and where is the cheapest place to get it.

Acrobat:
I've run Acrobat 5 Pro and 6 Standard for years and I like them just fine; but, they don't run on Vista. Where's the cheapest place to get Acrobat that will run on Vista. An OEM edition is okay, too.

TypeReader:
Expervision's TypeReader 6 is a great program; but, again won't run on Vista. It's a $400 program. Again, cheapest?

I guess I'll find more as I load my programs.

I need to get Office quickly. But I don't know the cheapest place to get it. At my college computer store, it's $65 for the 2007 Office Professsional version.
Or, is Office 2003 just as good? Because I would be fine with 2003.

Looking at ebay, it's probably more expensive buying from there. I only see 1 listing at < $65.

Would Walmart be cheaper? Is there a way I can get just Office, Powerpoint, and Excel?

A:Router is full. Cheapest solution

The cheapest way is to add the cheapest ethernet switch that meets your needs. Since any router with multiple LAN ports includes an ethernet switch another router would work.

If you want to use a router this way keep in mind that depending on its features when you use it as an ethernet switch you will be adding n-1 or n-2 ports to your network if the router has n LAN ports.
