Blue Screen Win7

Postby berpdreyfuss on Sun Jun 17, 2012 8:50 am

Hello, I had several crashes on Win 7 64 bit, I tried Firefox and Opera. Sometimes, let's say one out of ten, my computer goes to a blue screen and restarts right when the unity plugin progress bar is full.

Any Ideas?

Whoa... That sounds like a Unity issue, have you tried any other Unity web plugin games? I'd hope that there was some sort of issue with the web player install, rather than DD containing a 1-in-10 chance of a bluescreen. I mean, we shouldn't even be able to do that to the OS from within a browser.

These days I tend to immediately suspect hardware when I get a bluescreen myself.

Yes, I suspect a unity issue as well, I will reinstall it and see if it changes and will try other games. Just wanted to see if anybody is experiencing the same. I don't think it's a hardware problem because it only occurs at this game, and the system has been stable, I didn't even know the blue screen was still around...

It seems to have been a problem with the unity install, I couldn't properly uninstall it. I'll see if the problem persists with the fresh install. Thanks for the reply.

Tell me you have good news ;)

Support is usually rather depressing...

Until now, it didn't crash again :)

I'll report again in a week or so when i played a bit more.

That's the problem with support, people only report when they have problems... ;)

After three weeks I had another crash, ATM I suspect a problem with avast and unity, I will try another virus program.

I changed to MSE and until now, after a week of testing, it didn't crash. Let's hope it stays this way!

Yeah, I've been getting annoyed with Avast myself recently... Stupid scheduled scans locking up my PC for hours. That's just bullshit.

Quick update, I had another crash, so avast wasn't the problem... I updated graphic card and network driver, let's see what happens.
