  • Wierd

    So its another normal day on Al Krufrah Oilfield 64 in PR. I'm an engy for armor, everything's going well when suddenly (dramatic pause) I lag out and CTD!!! So as usual I yell and scream with my mic off. :P I attempt to rejoin when when I hit the Join Game button, i'm greeted by... THE WONDERFUL BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!!!! An error report when rs'ed finds it was a problem with my audio software... overheat maybe? Any remote way, a hacker attempt? Give me solutions people I WANT SOLUTIONS!!!! lol

    Depends. Does it keep happening? If it was a one-time event, could've been any number of things and I wouldn't worry about it. If it happens again I'd look at updating the drivers for your sound card, blowing the dust out of your tower, etc.

    With sound related BSOD it's almost always a driver issue, ime.

      Spyder's right, but also you didn't give us much to go on like what sound card are you using, what driver, etc.

      But it could just be a hiccup with the computer, and a 1 time thing. How often do you reboot your computer?

        It had never happened before, ran AV scan nothing came up. :) My sound card is Sound Blaster X-Fi Fata1ity.

        Not at all very often.

          You should reboot every few days, ESPECIALLY WITH XP that you love so much. It doesn't do as near a good job as Vista a letting go of things when you close them out, so the longer you run the more likely you are to have a hiccup somewhere. Just every other night or so turn off your computer when you go to bed.

          Even better, so you can stop wasting your parents electricity, is to turn your computer off when you aren't going to be using it for a few hours. Quit contributing to global warming. :D

              True Vista lover right there.. ;)

              I love the sleep feature in Vista.. although I'm unsure if it helps power consumption at all. I would think so as all the fans + stuff seem to turn off.

                Sleep just puts things in memory, and has to still use power to be able to jump right back where you left off.

                And hibernate isn't really a good option I don't think. You want your computer to refresh itself with the reboot, not come right back to the same stuff running. Plus, depending on your rig, hibernate can take up a huge chunk of your harddrive. I saw a 4 gig section on my harddrive one day and started looking into it and found out it was a hibernation data file from the 1 time I had tried it on Vista.

                As I have posted before, this is a great program to play with to see what all is actually on your harddrive:

                Turn on the color, and let the program blow your mind how much junk you have on your HD you can easily get rid of.

                    Hibernate gives you "almost instant on" because it snapshots memory and restarts the OS from where you left off when you shut down. None of the normal start-up churn. If you're one to leave a computer running for days at a time, hibernate is a good tradeoff for when you're not using it and don't need remote access.

                      Oh, but I do. I now enforce the "sleep mode" policy on all my systems (or I just yank the cord).
