A:New PC game crash-Napoleon TW / Anno 1404

Here is BC 50
Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS


Here is BC A

Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

If you follow these instructions an availabe member of he BSOD team will offer support.

To give you a head start:
Turn off your antivirus for test purposes and replace with Security Essentials.

Take this Memory Test
Guide to using Memtest86+


Both codes indicate anti virus.
These are just guesses, the complete report is necessaary for a detail anyalysis.

NTFS indicates that a Hard Drive diagnostic may be in order
http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html

I would first use Security Essentials and see if you get anymore crashes
Then the memory test and try the computer
Finally the Hard Drive.
If I could only try one it would be the antivirus change.

Hello everyone
Recently, I'm playing Anno 1404 (also called Dawn of Discovery) in my Vista Home Basic 32bit finely until I saw the problem with the "save/load" problem. First, it saves "systematically" but, the save is corrupted to a 5kb file. Second, the game can't load the 'properlly saved' save file, and also the corrupted one also.

Few of the players had the similar problem, and someone said that making another user account works, and I tried and really worked for me. Yes, I can play this way, but all of my files and infos are saved in the Administrator account, and I don't want to switch users just to play that game

Recently I found a useful MS program, which is runas, and found how to run as another account. It asks for the account pw, and everythis was fine, but it doesn't run my game
It just closes the cmd and nothing happens. What could be this problem?
I hope Ubi gives out this fixing patch fast

Essentially, my problem is that in some of my games - Anno 1404 & RUSE to be exact ( both of which are incidentally published by ubisoft, not sure if this is a coincidence) - the display keeps on crashing. My computer then alerts me that the display driver (I'll publish precise details tomorrow) has crashed and restarted successfully. In the case of Anno 1404, this error caused the game to go to a black screen. The actual game continued to run, but the display stopped working. I eventually manages to solve this problem by lowering the graphics settings. However, yesterday, I bought RUSE, and to my dismay, a similar issue occurred. Unlike Anno, in RUSE, the screen turned black, but after c. 5-15s it returned back to the game. The error message was the same as with Anno. This does, however, render the game unplayable as the gameplay is disrupted every minute or so. I tried lowering the graphics settings, but this didn't have any effect. This did not surprise me, as unlike Anno, the game was running perfectly smoothly on even the highest graphic settings, except of course when it crashed. The solution to this problem seems to be obvious- update the graphics driver. My graphics card is an nVidia geforce 9600GT, but I have not upgraded the driver since I purchased it. It is now several versions out of date. This is because, every attempt I have made to update the driver results in my computer not booting correctly, forcing me to use safe mode to access system restore... Read more

A:RUSE & Anno not working, probably due to driver

Sorry! I completely forgot to post my system specs. It's a custom-built machine, by the way.
-4GB DDR2 RAM
-Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 (@3.16gHz)
-320GB HDD (not sure which make)
-nVidia GeForce 9600GT 512mb
-Not 100% of the wattage of the PSU, but I think it was c. 800W. Don't know the Brand

I'm running Windows Vista home premium 32bit. The display driver for the graphics card is v.7.15.11.7516 (apparently). I would like to correct what I said previously; as far as I can remember, when I installed the new graphics driver, the computer did boot, but my home resolution (1440x900) did not turn up. It was, however, a while ago. I'm going to do it again now so that I can supply better details.
Thanks for the reply, anyway!

Answer Match 48.72%

Recently I bought Anno 2070 on steam and have been experiencing random computer lock ups while playing. The screen freezes, no distorted graphics or BSOD, just a screen freeze and distorted sound. I can not figure out for the life of me what is causing it.

This problem only happens in Anno 2070 and happens at completely random times(anywhere from 5mins to 2hrs). All my temps are below 60c and I constantly monitor them. Iv tried setting CPU overclock back to default and GPU overclock back to default speeds with no success. I also can't seem to reliably recreate the problem outside Anno 2070. I have been playing Path of exile/ Dota 2 for months with no problems and benchmarking programs also don't seem to cause a hard lock.

Things I have tried:

- Tested memory in memtest86, several passes and no errors.
- Tested CPU/RAM in prime95(blend), ran overnight with no errors. (I got a rounding error in the first 30 mins but I reset my ram settings back to default and that seemed to be fix it, and continued to run fine all night but may hint at a hardware issue?.)
- Tested GPU with Unigine/3dmark11 for several hours, no problems here.
- Reformatted computer.
- Tried unplugging old hard drives and reinstalling game. Also tried to run game off my new SSD rather than my second drive, so I don't think its a Hard drive problem.
- Tried 12.11(beta drivers)/12.10./12.8 AMD drivers
- Tried adjusting Ram timings/voltages
- Updated audio Drivers

Recently for some reason unknown to me Anno 2070 has been locking my system after around 10-15 minutes of play. When it happens these weird groups of blinking squares appear all over my monitor and everything except the cursor locks up. I can't minimize or close the game and if I am in vent or skype everyone's voice will cut off immediately and I can't talk back either. The only thing that keeps working properly is the game music for some reason, it doesn't even stutter.

Here are some a couple pictures of the screen when this happens:
http://i.imgur.com/LYSwq.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/vLy03.jpg

This started last night and overnight I tortured my computer with stress tests. Prime95 for hours with no errors, MSI Kombuster for about 30 minutes on "burn-in" with no crashing or artifacts, and I ran memtest86+ for 5 "passes" without any errors. Also monitored temps throughout all of this and nothing ever got anywhere near dangerously hot.

This is the only game this happens in also. I've been playing a TON of BF3/Diablo3 with no problems. After this happened I played the witcher 2 / skyrim with EVERYTHING maxed (with less than stellar FPS) just to see if I could get it to happen but nothing ever did.

I really have no idea what to do, the game worked fine for about 5 hours of play the other night and now I just won't work. Verified the files on steam without any problems so I don't think they got corrupted... I'm at a loss ... Read more

Hi,

just as the title says the game crashes and what is weird from my point of view is that I've been playing for like 50+ hours the past week and it just came out of nowhere. I tried verifying the game files through Uplay, this isn't a Steam version of the game. I haven't yet reinstalled it because I wanna leave it as a last step, not that it's that unpleasent but hnng.

Above is the error, I had to record my screen because it flashed too fast past.

I don't know if this has anything to do with the error but I bought a new pair for memory sticks and I enabled XMP in BIOS but other than that I can't really say I've done anything fishy with my computer, I've also considered if my graphics card isn't good enough for my 1440p 144hz monitor but I haven't had any crashes in any other games.

Cheerio.

A:Anno 2070 crashes with Runtime Error!

*Confused update*

It's not the actual game, it's only one specific saved game file that is causing the crash!

If someone else has got Anno 2070, I can send the file to see if it is the file or if the problem lies deeper!

Hello, my computer has been infected with malware. It started off with Google redirecting sites about a week ago. That has subsided, but when I woke up this morning, a program called SWP2009 demo was running, just like a rouge malware.
It pretends to find infected files that are not really there, and if I put the window box in the corner, I can use the computer. I tried running Malwarebytes, but a Windows Security alert pops up at the bottom of my screen saying "Application cannot be executed. The file mbam.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?" Currently the message says the file wuauclt.exe is infected.
I cannot access the task manager long enough to do anything. When I press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, the window flashes for a second, and then disappears. The same security message appears saying taskmgr.exe is infected.
Little yellow shields with exclaimation points collect on the bottom of the screen, whenever i scroll over them, they disappear. The shields then begin to recollect.
I'm new here and I would appreciate any help on this issue. Thanks!

I downloaded hijack this, but my computer will not let me run the program long enough for it to log anything.

Hello.
I understand that this post may be deleted because I am asking for a way around a password. I have had my posts delete on support websites already, but i thought it was worth another try.

I was wondering if there is anyway of bypassing passwords on windows vista? I just bought an ex-display PC, but for some reason, PC World hadnt reformatted so it was a clean start for me to use. So now im stuck with a PC that has a pc world demo account, that is passworded. I basically have no way to get onto the PC.

I tried pressing F8 on start up, and selecting the repair PC option, but I still need the password for the PC world account. I have contacted the support guys, but they are telling me to take it back to the store. I would like to find another way around it if I could before I have to take it back. (Its pretty hard for me to get there cos i cant drive)

Any help would be appreciated. The PC is a Dell XPS.

Hi guys,

I got a few problems with the demo F.E.A.R. The first is that I have to disable sound for it to work. The other thing is when I am able to play the game, In the very beggining after the car drops me off in that little alley way, I seems to be dropped off behind the car? and I have no way of getting around the car and I can't seem to find anyway into the building? Any info??

Thanks!
 

A:F.E.A.R Demo stuck??

F.E.A.R. ** spoiler alert **

First, playing this game without sound is removing a big part of what makes it so good. They did a tremendous job using sound (and silence) to set a mood that gets you so on edge while playing that its hard to stay in your skin. My phone ringing (real one not one in game) has made me almost pi** myself while playing it.

**spoiler time**
After you are dropped off in the ally, move forward and go right to find a boarded over doorway. To get through, you need to break the three small boards that are over it. The other boards won't break. (use your melee instead of wasting ammo on them) Go through the door, look around until you find the unlocked door that's near a flaming barrel. Move up to it and open it with the use key (unless you changed the defaults its F), then head inside to find yourself in a dim storage area. Get used to breaking things in the enviroment, F.E.A.R. uses the havoc engine and a lot of things you aren't used to are interactive and can be moved or broken. In fact you will frequently have to break ventilation grates, windows, boards and so on to find a way out of a level ... or even to flank a big group of badies before they break up and flank you.

Hi all..

I just downloaded the FEAR SP demo and it installed properly, but when I try to play it it crashes to the desktop before it even gets to the first screen. I disabled the "Sound" and it seems like that was the problem. I updated my drivers (SB Audigy Platinum) and also disabled Hardware acc in DX and still same problem? If I go into the config and disable sound I can play, but not with the sound on. So not sure what else to check..any info can appreciated!

Thanks!

Here's one for you guys,

I downloaded the FEAR demo from the VUGames site the other day, updated all the drivers on my system (which meets minimum requirements), and still the game will not run. I went into the configuration utility and set the game on 640x480, just to see if it would run correctly on my system. Everytime I click on the icon I am directed to this website http://promos.vugames.com/feardemo/, and even that site will not load. I'm trying to run the demo because I plan on going to get FEAR by the end of the week. Any suggestions, something I may have overlooked?

Thanks, John

Bioshock has received many great reviews - the trailers/TV ads looks quite good... and its using the new Unreal3 Engine....

So far, I am not impressed with a game that can't even start.

First, I have downloaded two different versions of an Offical Demo from reputable websites... Each version is 1.9GB in size! For such a well funded game and lots of TV marketing (Unreal has never been on TV) - the first DEMO creates a crappy game setup folder like this:

<drive>:\BioShock_PC_Demo_FF\raid10\temp\manager\nfdekpwgaj\BioShock PC Demo

WHAT IS THIS GARBAGE?! Unprofessional... Anyways, near the end of the install, the Windows Installer window POPS up, showing various optional instructions you could choose - for the Installer - means nothing.... only OKAY button is available anyways. The game says its installed. Click on the ICON and wow, an error pops up saying:

''This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstall the application may fix this problem''

I redownloaded a version from the offical site, the installer is not 5 sub-folders deep, but the game still refuses to run.... a lot of people are having this same problem.

So after 4GB of Downloads, 4 installs... this "cool" game is useless.

Next... This game has severe DRM... you are allowed ONLY 2 installs of the game. After that, your disc that you paid $50 is dead. Well, you can UNINSTALL the game and regain your "credit" - b... Read more

Is it just me or is call of duty 4 the shortest ever demo ... seriously?

A small firefight, take out a few tanks, take out some resistance, blow up an AA gun and call for air support and it's over.

One and a half gig download for 15 mins ....if.

I played through it once...didn't really like it.....played it once more and thought maybe I was a bit hard on it and it was OK.... and then uninstalled it.

What is even worse for this game is that there was no multiplayer at all and when you compare this to other demoes that came out recently..ET:QW and world in conflict .. well I was disappointed.

I was looking forward to this game and now probably won't buy it ... roll on brothers in arms and UT3.

I've downloaded the Crysis demo about 4 times from different places.

Each time it finishes downloading I go through the installation process. Once the installation process is done and it says it was successful, I go to play the game but there is no shortcut. In fact there's no files on my hard drive (other than the download file). I've tried rebooting, with no luck. I can view the Add/Remove Programs list, and it's in there, but the game is nowhere to be found.

Is this a problem with Vista? Or was I just really unlucky and dl'ed 4 corrupt files in a row?

Also, "teh beauty"? One, you can use DX10 features in OpenGL through extensions. Two, how does DX10 make it more beautiful? For example, Crysis will run on DX10 AND DX9, and in whichever mode you run it you will have access to ALL the eyecandy.

In anticipation of my upcoming (or so I thought) purchase of Doom 3, I downloaded the demo to give it a test run. Boy, am I glad I did! Here's my problem: I run the program and it goes through the loading screen with the Mars background. Then, the screen goes black. Almost 30 seconds later, a pointer appears in the upper left, and the music starts. About 30 seconds after that, the Doom 3 logo appears with a series of buttons at the bottom. About 30 seconds later, a picture of Mars appears behind the logo, and every 30 seconds after that, the picture of Mars rotates a little bit. I am unable to move the pointer at all unless I happen to be moving the mouse when the picture of Mars rotates. When I enter the Task Manager to shut Doom 3 down, it shows Doom 3 alternating between a status of "running" (for a couple of seconds) and "not responding" (for about 30 seconds.)

Hey there,

I like collecting store demos of products, and one that's caught my attention is the one for Windows 8. It plays a little "here's what your computer can do" video over and over, and lets you use all the features.

I notice it has a sample Microsoft account called Allison Brown.

I've tried copying all the hard drive contents off one of those demos to a flash drive, but it won't run on my regular computers. I also notice that if I use the "reset your PC" option on the kiosk demos, it'll turn into a regular Windows 8 without the demo stuff.

Is there some special installation disc/flash drive for retailers? I'm just curious - it's OK if nobody's allowed to distribute it due to legal reasons, but I was just curious how that demo was installed... obviously just copying the executables and trying to run them does not work.

I've even seen Windows RT demos with the Allison Brown account!

On that note, there used to be a "Windows Demo Experience" for Windows 7 that would show your computer's specs in a nifty little screen - same thing applies to that, I tried copying the files (I even used clonezilla and made a complete clone of a kiosk demo) and it doesn't run on anything. I'd love to know how to get a copy just for informational and collection purposes.

Hi,

Just wondered if anyone else was having a problem getting the Battlefield 2 demo to work? I have installed it and all drivers are up to date, but when I double click the icon the screen goes black for about 4 seconds, then I am left with Windows. No error or anything, it just doesnt work. My PC meets the spec (P4 3ghz, 512mb ram, Win XP SP2). Not so sure I want to buy the game now :S

Well I downloaded this twice due to problems the first time round, thinking that it may have been a bad download, I tried again, but the problems are still there

Crackling sound, like static behind units, no marching sounds, infact if I was honest the sounds in all are pretty lame, when you compare to Medieval 2 the sounds in that for gunpowder units were simply terrific, but in Empire they seem somewhat poor, anyone else tried the demo and feels the same?

I hope that this is only down to it being a demo, some on official forums have said that Steam did cock up some of the files, how true this is I don't know, again it is all just guessing from people, until official word comes out, we won't know, but to say I am disappointed is an understatement, such a shame as I had really high hopes for this game, I'll still buy it but hope that these things can be addressed.

Also no blood effects, and for a war game its poor, again maybe a demo thing? if they have gone down that route then its not good at all

But my main concerns are that and the sounds, long load times don't particularly bother me, but I also had a crash trying to play the Brandywine battle, so things are a bit touch and go with this

Just hope it gets sorted that's all, or that it is as I have said down to it being a demo, only thing that makes me doubt this, is I think the demo for Medieval 2 was much better and no problems, I am worried, anyone else?

Jekyll and Hyde

A:Empire Total War Demo

Got the excact same problem myself. I actually made Dell come and repair my speakers because i thought they were the problem. Got the same problem with Medieval actually. Those static noices.
I'm gonna wait until i get the full version and check if i have the same problem. Got the problem with long loading screens as well. Guessing it's the demo that's not as good as it should be? Anyone else experiencing the same problems?

I have downloaded the Battlefield 2 Demo from about 6 different places and each one does the same thing. When I double-click the executable demo file, it opens the splash screen and then the first window of the installation. Before you can hit the "next" button, the installation closes down.

I have tried closing all running apps, have turned off my software and hardware firewalls, checked for viruses and spyware and nothing has helped.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Haven't played the demo in a while; are you in the city where people are walking around?

If so, go to the right, you will notice a dumpster I believe, get on top of that, jump over a fence, and there should be a ladder somewhere near the other side of the fence.

Thanks for looking. I have been searching for other posts with this problem. But could not see the fix.

There is a program in the system tray that wants me to buy. Antivirus System Pro
A demo program that wants to scan the compter. It shows all kinds of fake viruses. Even though I tried not to run it. I could not find it in the remove program list of add and remove
programs.

This program is not in the task bar of all users on this compter.
And only that user can not view most websites in internet explorer.

Can you help me remove the demo program. Norton found some kind of trogen fake
file but it could not delete it.
Thank You,

Hello, everybody. My Vista version is Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 32 bit and today I downloaded a Black & White 2 Demo from the Lionhead Studios website and while I ran the set-up to the program I received the error:

An error (-5009 : 0x8002802b) has occurred while running the setup.

Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor: Lionhead Studios.

This happens each time I start the installation and I have no other applications running, and I have not setup any other computer games at this time. If I press OK it stops the installation and the same problem repeats each time I tr I installed another game a few days ago and no error like this occurred. I'm not sure what the problem is, since I'm not the best with computers, and I would like some help.
