Rebooting and Blue Screen!

2653 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  gdavge2003
I just got this new computer a few days ago and its:
HP Pavilion, Pentium 4 CPU 3.00Ghz, 2.79 GHz, .99 Gig of RAM with Service pack 2.
Whenever I play a game such as Guild Wars, Half Life 2, etc. it automatically reboots... this happened 3 times when I was playing and after the reboots it would say "the system has recovered from a serious error".

On the 4th time, I got a blue screen and it says:
Stop: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005,0xBFACEF94,0xAA06299c,0x00000000)
ialmdd5.DLL - Address BFACEF94 base at BFA34000, Date Stamp 42a73847

Also, I believe I have a decent video card to play the games I mentioned (autodetect and it sets everything on high quality and no messed up pics here and there). Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks

Oooh.. Yeah, i'm using a video card thats "onboard". I have my ATI 128 mb videocard still in my old XP (which my parents use)... The reason I didn't take it out and put it in this one was because I thought the video card in this was already good enough.. Oh well.. gonna replace video cards right now.. I'll post again if something still comes up, thanks! :grin:
lol... after about 40 minutes of fiddling with my 2 computers.. i have found out that my video card was AVG.. and this new computer only has 3 PCI slots.. :deveous: ... time to buy a new video card! lol..

Oh wait.. I just checked my current video card and the info is:
Chip type: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910Gl Express cihpset
DAC Type: Internal
Memory Size: 128 MB
Adapter String: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset
Bios Information: Intel Videos BIOS

I noticed that the memory is 128 mb.. which is enough to play my games.. so.. any help to get this working properly? Btw, the blue screen pops up when I turn off the auto reboot thing..
I reinstalled the driver and set it to a lower resolution (directions from Intel) and now it works fine! Thanks for the suggestions :tongue:
