zahoff Posted November 30, 2005 Share Posted November 30, 2005 (specs posted below) A friend help me build my comp. I use it solely for gaming and surfing as of right now. I have the 1Gbyte TwinX matched memory pair 2-2-2-5 lat. I have only 2 games installed right now, FEAR and Everquest2. FEAR gets to a point where it crashes to desktop. This happens within 5 mins of playing single player, and randomly in multiplayer. The biggest annoyance occurs during EQ2. The game periodically skips, goes thru a hang sometimes of 20 secs. then suddenly catches up. It also crashes to desktop randomly. Just today before the game could even load me into the world i got a Blue screen with the stop error 0x00000050, with the message PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA. I have also received the stop error 0x00000080 i believe. I think this may be a RAM issue, b/c when the skips and stutters occur in EQ2 the LED lights on my RAM flicker and stutter as well in sync with the graphical lag. I ran Memtest with both sticks in. The first round of tests passed, but on the 2nd round it was one failed test after another. I had a problem installing windows last time in which window would not boot after the install. A forum lead me to change my RAM timings from auto to manual, and change the command rate to 2t (i don't know what any of that means). Other than that I have not changed any BIOS settings, nor do I overclock or change any advanced settings. I have recently upgraded drivers for my mobo, cpu and gpu which did not seem to help. I've read about but did not change or know what to do with my page file. By the way, my system can idle all day long, i can surf problem free. Problems seem to occur only during gaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I know my comp. should be running these games beautifully and quickly with ease. (PS turning every single graphic setting down or off in EQ yields the exact same skipping and stuttering of the game and RAM).
