Blue Screen of Death

7 posts in this topic

I have been away from the game for awhile and have started back playing. Since I have been back I have been getting sent random to the blue screen. It seems to involve my Joystick I think. I have a satik x45 that I played with for a long time. I also have a gforce 9800 video card and saw that there were some issues with that also. This seems to only happen when I am using the joystick and I dont remember it happening when I am playing inf. Also when I relog back in everytime I get a connection lost to host on the first log in then it allows me back into the game.

I had to double take your tread I just posted the smae exact title a couple of weeks back lol

Mine busted me up pretty good and I had to re install windows from one of the errors I finally got.

If you checked the compability to run in windows 95 screen that might have done it. I checked it since we use to do that but I was advised not to do it and sure enough now it's not doing it.

I use a saitek EVO and it's runnig good right now. Make sure you defrag and get as much clutter out of the system tray and stuff like that. see if that helps

The most common BSOD failure is see on here from ww2ol is from using MB audio with incorrect settings. If you use realtek MB audio and you set your ww2 in game sounds to hardware it will crash your computer. If running MB sound you should make sure you're set to software sound and update your sound drivers. It happened to me and I tried nearly everything else before focusing on the sound as the problem.

How do you know it's the joystick? Can you play without the joystick plugged in and not have a BSOD?

I forgot to add that yes I also did switch to software instead of hardware for my sound, I'm running realtek mb audio also.

When I first started back I didnt even plug in the joystick figured I would get used to settings and such first. I didnt get the BSOD when I was doing this. Started getting it when I decided it was time to tank.

Let me remind that only drivers and OS itself can cause BSOD, not any Application like game.

For example, a buggy network driver can cause BSOD not while browsing but doing a heavy job like bittorrent. It is same for games triggering BSOD issues in drivers.

Are you running stable drivers there? WHQL certified?
