Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Blue Screen of Death.

★★★★ Novice

Hello,

 

Thank you for reading this.

 

My computer is new. I built it less than 6months ago. It has been running fine for that time without any issue whatsoever. Today I started getting BSOD's when I run BF:BC2. When I boot the game the core temperature of my PC rises and doesn't stop, eventually (I believe) causing the BSOD. This does not happen on any other games. I run everything at maximum and regularly play multiple games at once. I have taken my PC to bits and cooled it with extra fans - this only makes it take longer to do it.

 

BSOD Info :

I have attached a dxdiag file just because I could.

 

Please note :

 

I have read around this topic already.

AVG and Malwarebytes are currently in progress.

I do not have a CD burner so I cannot burn Memtest86 to a cd and boot from it. I do have memory sticks if someone can tell me if that works and how.

I do have my windows 7 disc, so I can do repairs. Please inform me if doing this will format anything as backing up is a big deal for me.

 

I appreciate any/all help or advice. Thank you everyone.

 

Edit:

 

I do not overclock anything

I do not use MSI afterburner

I have sufficient cooling

I have turned off all programs that could conflict with it (even firewalls etc)

You see:

DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID:  WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT

PROCESS_NAME:  PnkBstrB.exe

 

Try update PunkBuster. Uninstall from windows and install from this link http://www.evenbalance.com/downloads/pbsvc/pbsvc.exe , then download PBSetup 3.5 from http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php and update PunkBuster files in game folder.

 

And how specifications have your PC?

Punkbuster was updated.

 

For anyone else looking for a solution to this :

 

Disabling EasyTune6 (And any other overclocking software) and disabling any kind of monitoring software (GPUZ, CPUZ) fixed this for me. Punkbuster is a piece of junk which was causing my CPU to fail if I had these other programs open.

 

This fix has been confirmed on two different machines.
