    Well, these last few days I've been having a number of unexoected crashes on the desktop. The latest one being:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.48
    Locale ID: 2057

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 124
    BCP1: 0000000000000000
    BCP2: FFFFFA80050AB4F8
    BCP3: 0000000000000000
    BCP4: 0000000000000000
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 256_1

    Files that help describe the problem:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\051110-23883-01.dmp
    C:\Windows\Temp\WER-25942-0.sysdata.xml

    Does this mean anything to anyone? And could anyone help me understand how I view these events and where I can go to interpret the results?

    I initially thought it was my psu, as I was using a cheap one whilst I rma'd my corsair but thats back in now and still having problems.

    Computer is a per sig, not overclocked at all except for the ram which has been set to 1600mhz on auto voltage via bios. As well as crashes I have had a grey screen with vertical bars in it and the pc wouldn't even reboot after crashes fomrt he starcraft2 beta client the other day. Pulling my hair out now as everything was fine, playing avp2010 fine etc.

    Win 7 64bit. Computer went banana's today so did a full reinstall. Suppose it was due one anyway................:mad:

    Touch wood seems fine but gonna give the sc2 beta a run now see what happens

    Edit: I have a sneaky suspicion it was the ati drivers as my 5770 card started to grey screen/grey vertical bars, not sure if this means it borked?

    Right update: reinstall has not solved the problem and I ahve rolled the dirvers back tot he ones which have bene most stable.

    My PC is now doing two things:

    Earlier mid game in starcraft 2 beta I got a grey screen with grey vertical bars. The computer then rebooted and my monitor said 'no signal'. Turned computer off and on and there was signal.

    Then on startup it flashed up 'unable to apply overclock' start with default settings etc. Odd thing is I'm not overclokcing my rig. My ram has defaulted to 1333 and I've left it at that instead of 1600 to see if that was an earlier problem.

    CPU/GPU etc not overclocked.

    Please guys any ideas? Really starting to bald over this! :(

    Sounds like the card is bad, I'd send it back if possible.

    Mmmm, I was thinking this too. I hope it is just the card but at the same time hope it isnt as I don't have a spare, and my pc aint got onboard gfx :(

    Hmm that is a pain, as trying another card would be helpful. It really does sound like a dodgy graphics card though to be honest.

    Problem solved. Just ran memtest and one of my g-skills was reporting errors a go-go!

    Yay I have identified the problem!

    I could have sworn you said you'd checked the memory, but re-reading the thread you obviously didn't. It was definitely a hardware error anyway!

    Well the symptons appeared to be the gpu but after the tantrum my pc threw today tried it in a test rig ina local pc shop and it passed furmark 06 no probs. Then got home and tried memtest and bingo. I am a noob at this so please bear with me. OCuk arranging a return and have also emailed to say it sounds like the gpu may be at fault. Anyone recommend a good test for it or is furmark one of the best?
