View Full Version : Sys-Crash after ~2h MP
Yesterday i played a nice MP-Game for ~2h without any problem, but than i got a system freez and nothing else than restart the system was possible.
Ok maybe it was a HD-Read error or something.. i joined the game again and after 15min I got the same sys-freez again.. Restart System and rejoined game.. after 5min System-Freez.
Sounds like the cpu or grafic-card was to hot.. but in BIOS CPU was at 57°C and also Grafic-card was ok.
anyone else problems like this?
Arma2 1.01beta (i will update game today)

nasty,do you have dual screens? if so open taskmanager and if your ms os is implementing audiodg.exe watch it to see if its leaking memory while playing.. Ive never normaly had issues with that damn thing but I can tell you the othernight playing warhammer online, the damn file had a fit and went right up to 1gb or ram usage on that file alone..
Now I monitor it all the time for the sheer scaryness it gave me. Fortunatley nothing of the same sort since.. worth a check though, should normaly be from 9-15mb when being used..
Otherwise a full motherboard update of drivers (if you have not) could be a good idea. If your temps are fine its a tough one for sure, also sudgest a Hard drive test with pref the makers tools to see if its dying.
If not could be corrupt system files somewhere, does happen time to time, only once so far in my time of putting. But when it does it to especially windows media type system files, the microsoft OS goes ape.

Looking at those symptoms, I'd definitely say it was an overheating problem. The fact that the freeze occurred much more quickly on the second and third tries is a definite giveaway. If your CPU was still at 57° by the time you checked it in the BIOS, you can be pretty sure it was quite a bit higher before.
I've seen computers with similar symptoms, where the cooling worked just fine up to a point, but crapped out when the temps crossed a certain threshold. Like under medium-heavy load it would go up to 55°c and stay there pretty stable, but if there was too much going on and it went above 57°c the whole thing would suddenly go apeshit and climb to 70°c in just a few minutes.
Which CPU cooler do you use and do you have any case fans? Have you overclocked anything in that system?
