Hi, you guys have been amazingly helpful last time, so I'm back.
This sound is the first indication of the problem. Whenever I play a game for longer than 10 minutes, this happens. Affected games: trackamania nations, trackmania united, CoD4, MW2, BO, Oblivion, .. Most games. Stepmania doesn't seem to have the problem, so I think it may be OpenGL/DirectX related.
This sound is also paired with severe FPS problems. After a few more minutes of play, I the BSOD; http://i.imgur.com/yVmRS.jpg
One odd thing is that when I launch a game (for example CoD4, which boots quickly, because other games need to boot steam first :s) right after startup, and leave it running for say 10 minutes, the problem will not exist for the entire session, until I reboot.
Natively, I had Vista, after a month orso the problem started occuring. Then I clean installed Windows 7 Home Premium, the problem didn't exist at first. After a month, same problem. Then I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, which gave the same story.
I'm confident that the problem is with an auto-update of something, I deliberately didn't instal any drivers manually.
Here is a sound clip, it's not 100% as I hear it, but it should give an idea.
CPU: Intel i7-920
GPU: NVIDIA 285 GTX
RAM: 6 Gb DDR3
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
The BSOD report of the sticky is attached.
Thanks for your future help.
- 64 bit.
- Not the original OS. At first this had Windows Vista Home Premium Dutch 64 bit, then Windows 7 Home Premium Dutch 64 bit as an upgrade I got cheaply from my ACER, and finally out of misery I got Windows 7 Ultimate English 64 bit.
- Full retail.
- I got my system just over 2 years ago.
- My current OS is about half a year old I estimate. The problem recurred over all OS's.
The proper report ZIP has been added. Once again, thanks for taking the time to check me out.
