I hope someone in the comunity can give me so idea how i can resolve this problem. When I play Elite force II or Neverwinter NIghts and i try to quit the game or alt+tab back to windows my computer reboots itself for no aparent reason. Yet it doesn't happen when I play Halo or Halo CE Anyone have any Ideas? jI apreciate any help.
I wouldn't recommend using alt+tab to quit games. Quit them properly.
Are you Overclocking?
-Try running scan disk on "full" scan.
-Check the games/drivers are up to date.
-Be sure you have SP2.
-Check for virus's and malware.
EDIT: If you want to see a report other than it restarting without warning.... Right Click on My Computer > Properties > Select the Advanced tab > Click settings button under Startup and Recovery, then remove the check from the Automatically Restart checkbox.
the internet is skynet
Hmm ok i'll check on drivers but it only started recently. i should mention I just replaced the power supply but I can't immagine that would have anything to do with it. It does it when I quit the game properly
Ok i desabled the autorebot and the error I got seemd to have something to do with win32k.sys
Stop: 0x000008e if that means anything to anyone
Also if i continue to run these games and suffer these dirty reboots when i exit them will it cause damage to my system? I googled thiz and it looks like this oculd be something that microsoft is aware of but no solution was listed.
Does it display a Blue Screen???
I had a similar problem which was Starforce related (A Copy-Protection Bug)....
I don't know if this is your problem but there is a patch for it HERE.
As i said, i don't think this is your problem....
yep i got a blue screen with a stop error relating to win32k.sys
" STOP: 0x00000050 (0xf7f7f7fb, 0x00000000, 0xa0033dd0, 0x00000000) PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA address 0xa0033dd0 in Win32K.sys"????
Are you using Windows XP or 2000?
nope mine's diffrent
Windows XP Pro
I found this....
System crashes at win32k.sys is very common. You have a lot of dump reading experience and I believe that you see the a lot of footprint of win32k.sys at the stack trace of the minidumps. It is not the software of win32k.sys.
Refer the following cases and they are crashed at win32k.sys Faulty vid http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic35211.html Mini101405-01.dmp 50 (f97dfffe, 00000000, f97dfffe, 00000000) win32k!ttfdSemQueryFontData+7a -> win32k!GreReleaseSemaphore+a
Could be your RAM...
