I'm not sure what this entails or why it's doing this but when I play any high demanding games my computer freezes completely, the games would be Left 4 dead 2, Borderlands, and also audiosurf of all things It crashed during audio surf when I was changing the resolution and video options not sure if it was timing or coincidence when it crashed if it was innevitable for crashing or what was up.

Please help it's really frustrating me. I've received some help before, but they never elaborated and I didn't know how to do what they told me to do. Maybe if the same solutions come up here as I was told before, I will attempt them.

Thank you,

Hi could you post the full spec of your computer is it a laptop or desktop if a desktop please include the power supply

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.

Not a problem, the specs of my computer are:

Windows 7 Home premium 64bit
ASUS P7P55D-Deluxe motherboard
OCZ Reaper 2x2gb DDR3 ram
Intel i5 750 CPU
XFX Radeon HD 5770 (crossfire with XFX Radeon HD 5770)
OCZ Z Series 1000Watt SLI Ready Power supply
1 Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7200.12 RPM 16MB (Running super speed(motherboard option on the p7p55d deluxe)
1 Western Digital 250 GB 7200 RPM 16GB (Running Ultra Space, another motherboard option on the ASUS p7p55d deluxe)

All are brand new.

I ran the windows 7 extended MEM Test and it came back clean with no errors.
I made sure my HDD Firmware was up to date and I have the newest one.

I've received numerous solutions, None of which have worked.. Such as Disabling the Procscan in the task scheduler, updating the HDD Firmware. Some also said flashing the mobo, clearing the cmos, REALTEK Driver, mobo bios version, Voltages(ram not getting enough volts). so many different options I don't know what one to try.

I forgot to add that I used to be able to play video games fine 2 days ago, It's just these past couple days where I have been getting these errors and I have done nothing to my computer.

I've done lots of research on this same problem and there are a ton of people who have the same issue, whether they're transfering files, downloading, on itunes, or simply just on the internet.

It says rebooted without cleanly shutting down first because I have to force shut down the computer because it freezes completely, I can't even use the mouse, nor can I access task manager. my computer just freezes and the sound loops on a single .01 second sound that was playing just before it crashed.

I tried waiting it out to see if it would eventually start working again and nothing.

Here is the error

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Hey sorry for double post it appears I'm unable to edit my previous post.

**************I THINK I MAY HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION!****************
I got some help from another user on a different forum.

She told me to check my audio drivers. I had three, TWO ATI High def audio drivers and one VIA High def audio

My conclusion is that the two ATI's were fighting echother for the information causing the crash, I disabled one and it works PERFECTLY(thus far) game used to crash sometimes at loading, 10 seconds into game play no more then 20 seconds.. I've been playing for about 3 hours now on all high settings, changin the resolution a couple times a minute trying to cause the crash. I'm unable to cause the crash.


Everyone note this as a possible and hopefully a solution.

Your suggestion worked for me.

Had two Audio drivers:
ATI High Definition Audio Device
High Definition Audio Device

First disabled High Definition Audio Device
The computer would not restart in normal mode successfully.

Second try - I chose to
disable ATI High Definition Audio Device instead.
(Now this time enabling the High Definition Audio Device)


Now all is well.
