Problems crashing to desktop when running games...

Recommended Posts

K here is the deal...It crashes at different times. Mostly it has been crashing in World of Warcraft, but it has also crashed a few times in 3dMark. I am running eTrust Innoculate in the background. It crashes to desktop with an error message...the next time it happens I will post the message...

 

Please see post:

This guy seems to be having similar problems. I did what the guy said about the sound accelerator...so we will see if that helps.

 

Cheers,

Ok. Also try disabling anything running in the background, I had an issue before with ZA conflicting somehow and crashing to BSOD when playing Direct3D games....Open GL based engines ran fine though. Posting that error message may help identify the problem.

Okay here is what the error reads:

 

This is while I am playing World of Warcraft. The time of crashing varies:

 

"This application has encountered a critical error:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084)

Program: C:Program FilesWorld of WarcraftWoW.exe

File: C:buildbuildWoWengineSourceGxuGxu.cpp

Line: 217

 

up.SquaredMag() >=0.01f

 

Press OK to terminate the application.

 

I have tried different ram, and a different video card and now a different power supply and still the same problems. I have similar crashes when I do 3dmark...

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

I don't know anything about that game. Have you gone to their website to check if there is a patch?

PS: I'm assuming it crashes to the desktop right? When it does, you can use everything else on your computer, right?

This defintely sounds like a bug embedded in WOW. It isn't your systems fault. You can report the bug to the software developer, but chance are someone else has had the same problem and have reported it. Issues like this are what patches are for. ;)

If it was a problem with the particlular game, why would it fail doing 3dmark as well?

Yes your right. Now it seems 90% certain that the problem is with your video card since it only shows up while playing 3D games. The guy in the other thread mentioned installing a pci soundcard as his cure, are you currently using the onboard sound?
