I'm having a problem when I exit a game.. mainly Warcraft III, that's all I play right now. I get a BSOD sometimes. I have a Leadtek GF4 Ti4400.. I used to have a an old GF2, but since the upgrade, I've been getting this BSOD. I've never had any problems like that with the GF2. I have formatted my computer and tried using 30.82 and 41.03 Dets. I'm trying the 40.72's right now... Is this a common problem.. and is there a solution to it?

What's the error of the BSOD? OS? etc. al

It was something about page file exceeding page limit... I think. It also gave a filename, but I forgot what it was.. something with "sys" in it. Next time I get it, I'll remember the specifics.

Ok.. I got the BSOD again. It says: page_fault_in_nonpaged_area and it mentions vsdatant.sys. Any ideas?

if i'm not mistaken, that sounds like a memory problem. probably a format, under default settings. your cas could be too high or your fsb is too high. if it doesn't work, its probably a bad stick of ram.

I actually did format.. and I set the CAS to default at 2.5. I have 2 sticks of Crucial DDR RAM. The thing is.. these problems started occurring when I put the GF4 in. Could the problem be the RAM on the GF4 card?

Nevermind.. I found the culprit! vsdatant.sys is a ZoneAlarm file.. I got rid of that and everything is smooth again :)
