Post subject:  Win 7 - Crashes while playing.


I've been running Win 7 Ultimate. TCE (as admin, win xp sp 3 compatibility) seems to crash randomly (usually within 5 minutes) freezing up my whole computer.
I thought this could be heat issues, but I can play cod 4 for hours without having issues.
I can't find any crashlogs or logs at all of what could be happening...

Linkage for DxDiag

Any ideas ?

EDIT: fixed url

when u start tce type /logfile 2 (it'll create an etconsole.log within the tcetest folder).
seems like a weird problem, i'd recommend to close as many unimportant processes/services as possible, just to rule out a conflict with other software/services.

u might also wanna try to connect to a server with punkbuster being disabled to check if pb is maybe causing the crash
/connect (mostly empty)
/connect (japanese ctf server)

post the log and result of testing the non-pb servers(for at least 10 mins)

/ur link isnt working btw ( - Unknown paste ID, it may have expired or been deleted!)

You don't really have to run the game in compat mode. Just a thought.

Hi again,

Ok, I'll try that empty server and console log generation.

I can re-upload the dxdiag albeit, there's not much that can be debugged over there...

About the compat mode, I put it on after it crashed the first time (thought that could debug it), but apparently it didn't fix the error... The first time it crashed I had an mmo running in the background (eve), the following times it crashed straight out of boot.

Thanks for your replies, I'll get a log and check if there's anything abnormal about it.
