This Is Getting Bloody Ridiculous! CTD

8 posts in this topic

K two rigs and 6 years later I have had maybe 3 ctd's ever. The last week I ctd about every 20 minutes.

No changes at my end. Spyware and anti-virus up the hoop. Defrag alot. Reset modem and router. I can ping sites with pingplotter without a burp.

Any thoughts?

I would check for updates to ALL drivers, especially video card and sound card. I have been playing for 2 weeks straight with no CTD's whatsoever.

How long are your playing sessions? Perhaps there's a memory leak?

Your soundcard driver is from 2001' date=' I'd begin with updating that.[/quote']

Most up to date for my card I can find.

Drivers are unlikely the culprit unless you changed them a week ago (which you said you didn't). The game hasn't been patched, your system configuration wasn't changed.

How long has it been since you've cleaned the inside of your case? Dust can accumulate and cause heat issues.

Anyway, if you're case is clean I'd try the following three things.

Run memtest. http://www.memtest.org/ . If this fails, it points to bad RAM. It could theoretically point to CPU/Mobo as well, but if your computer boots fine thats unlikely.

Run a disk check. It's possible that one of the WWIIOL data files or executables got corrupted. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265

Backup your CFML files and reinstall the game, for the same reason as the disk check above. It's possible something got corrupted and the file system doesn't detect it as such.

If none of the above work, I'd start looking at the graphics card, though I don't know any tools to really diagnose those problems. I've had to resort to physical inspection of the card once.

Cleaned when the problem started. Will run memtest. And I will maybe redo the game. Did a disk check last week.

Never thought of the ram.

Do you know what model of SB Live! you have? If so, try going to this page on the Creative Labs web site to see if they have a more recent driver. Most drivers there seem to be from 2005.
