I run Windows 7 64 bit. I have a GTX 275 graphics card, Q6600 CPU, and 4 GB of ram.

I have already downloaded Windows 7 64 bit compatible drivers for my graphics card and mouse and reinstalled them.

By the way, I have a Razer Diamondback mouse, and after Googling I've found out that many people have problems with this mouse' driver causing BSODs.

I have attached a .dmp file, I would appreciate it very much if someone could look into this.

Thank you very much.

Hi Friend,

Have you tried adding the folder of the game you are playing to your anti-virus's exception? Mine was hanging because of my anti-virus all along. I thought it was my video card. Most games are treated as trojan or anti-virus by Anti-Viruses such as avast. So try adding it in the exceptions list of your anti-virus.
