    Can you post a few of your latest minidump files? They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

    Right-click the minidump file, select Send To, then select Compressed (zipped) Folder.

    Windows will compress (zip) the file and save the new zipped file in the same location.



    If the Minidump folder is empty, you'll need to configure Windows to create minidump files:

    I found my minidump folder but there is nothing in it. I haven't played the game in a day or two so do you want me to play until my pc crashes and then check the minidump?

    It might not be generating any crash dumps at all.

    Please download SINO.

    Run the program.

    Add a check mark on Event Log.

    Click Run Scan!

    A Notepad window will open with the text report.

    Copy and paste the entire report in your next reply.

    Unfortunately, no help there. :(

    Could your computer be overheating?

    Might be a power supply problem?

    Do you have the latest graphics card drivers?

    Yes I do believe it is a overheating problem, I have SpeedFan and Core Temp and my temps get very high when I play Arma 2. I get higher than 90 degrees celcius. I will check if I have the latest graphics card drivers.

    Make sure all the air vents are free of dust and that your fans are all running.

    I did make sure there is no dust at all and I took off the side piece thing on the pc and made sure that everything was going good with no dust, and my fan is going about 3054RPM.
