View Full Version : bsod problem along with error message

08-06-06, 03:48 PM
Hi all...I experience freezing playing my favorite game nascar 2003 (and all it's mods). It happens sporadically but usually after I have been running a race for a while. The race is obviously ruined since if it comes back to the game I have crashed or worse the pc needs to be restarted.

All else seems stable happens if oc'd or running at stock settings.This is the error message I receive. The infinite loop problem is mentioned in the blue screen.

Stop 0x000000EA (0x885B8B80, 0XF78B2CB4, 0X00000001)


Tried current nvidia drivers, beta drivers, clean installs you name it. Again happens if cpu is stock or oc'd. Gpu is at factory speeds and settings.

Any info would be appreciated. Nothing worse than racing almost two hours pulling into the 2nd spot with the lead car in sight and the bsod appears.

Do you think my psu can handle this setup? It is sli certified. Other forums seem to pinpoint it as the problem.

its possible, that OC is pretty diesel.

have you tried running your system not OC'd?

also, id look into memtest86 (http://www.memtest86.com/) to make sure your RAM is stable.

thx for the reply. RAM is stable tested with various programs. Froze even at stock speeds. Testing cards individually atm. First card locked up, the second has not but will test more later today.

My bsod's seemed to caused by the nvidia firewall, havent had any since Ive stopped using it, do you have that installed by any chance?

no did not install the nvidia firewall. Supposedly many problems associated with it.
