Consistant hangups during games, need to restart

    I have recently reinstalled XP and that hasn't stopped the problem.

    Certain games will cause my system to hang, requiring a restart. I managed to play BF2142 for 6 hours straight, yet a simple game like Conquer Online will crash me after a few minutes.

    I am using the latest drivers for my 7600GS (162.18) and updated my audio (Onboard) because someone suggested the gfx/audio may be conflicting.

    The only things that have shown up in my event log that I cant explain are as follows:

    Application:
    Event ID: 1517

    Windows saved user ONETRICKPWNY\WirlWind registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

    This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.


    and

    System:
    Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003

    Error code 0000004e, parameter1 0000008f, parameter2 00012950, parameter3 00012958, parameter4 00000000.


    ::EDIT:: I would post a mini-dump but the lock-ups require a hard restart and for some reason XP isn't picking up that a serious error happened. So I don't have any dumps for the last 6 or so times. I do have a Hijackthis doc from my most recent scan if anyone feels the need to see it, but as I said, this install isn't even 24 hours old yet and I've only installed basic drivers and the basic entertainment needs (iTunes, a few games and that's really it)

    Just checked my latest dump

    A small excerpt and the rest will be down further

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

    not sure about your exact issue, but for the record the 162 drivers are full of bugs. I know a ton of people both personally and online that have MUCH better success with the 163 drivers. I think the current is 163.67 released just a few weeks ago. Get it from the nvidia beta section. I have a widescreen monitor with a res of 1680x1050 and the 162 offical whql certified drivers DO NOT even properly support my res!!! talk about some bull..

    Cheers, I just reinstalled every single driver possible for my system, all updated.

    I havn't had any issues since, but I'm not holding my breath. If it dies again, I'll give the 163's a chop :)

    Cheers mate, I think this conundrum might have been solved after all that.

    ::EDIT:: Spoke too soon.

    No blue screen, just a system lock up. As per usual, I guess. I wish the lock ups would actually write something to the events or even make a dump file, but seems not :(

    I've tried everything a man can try (Except the thing that fixes the problem :p)

    Still nothing, running a skeleton install at the moment, nothing but updated drivers,windows debug kit, and a single game to test with.

    Still getting the issue, though takes longer to occur. Havn't gotten a single dump file yet, the computer just locks and nothing can be done.

    I'm this close to trying some random XP home install, rather than my XP pro SP2 build 2600, see if that works.

    If not, I've done everything humanly possible and I'll most likely end up a sobbing mess in the corner :p

    That may sound dramatic, but gaming and clubbing is all I have until I head off to boot camp in november, so I have pretty much nothing else to do. :(

    Just noticed my setuperr file:

    Code:
    Error:
    Setup could not register the OLE Control C:\WINDOWS\system32\mshtml.dll because of the following error:
    GetProcAddress returned error 127 (the specified procedure could not be found).

    Error:

    ***
    
    Error:
    Setup could not register the OLE Control C:\WINDOWS\system32\imgutil.dll because of the following error:
    GetProcAddress returned error 127 (the specified procedure could not be found).

    Error:

    ***
    
    
    Are any of those important? Or just the install skipping over the annoying "activate windowslol" files? The log itself said somewhere that they were "minor" issues and the OS would run fine.

    so it ONLY happens when gaming? have you tried swapping out the video card? or checked the fan on it? its always possible it could be a hardware fault.

    I have no other PCI-e card to test, none of my friends are big into gaming unfortunately. But I only got it the other day, and the seller said it worked :p

    The latest dump seems to suggest a driver. I'm gunna try an omega driver and see how that fares :)

    ::EDIT::

    I'll add the mini-dump debugs. First is most recent, that actually looks like it might be RAM related, but I'm no expert.

    Just an update, I installed the omega drivers with the changed file for all card support and it is running fine.

    I don't know why I didn't just use the omega drivers in the first place, they still seem to be better than the real ones lol.

    If a mod could slap a [SOLVED] on here I'd be muchly appreciated. Thanks Ugzz, you're a legend greater than superman :)
