That most likely rules out the graphics card as the problem...

Still having instability with gaming and obtaining your WEI?

If you are, try the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool in extended mode for five passes. Post back if memory passes there, too.

Yeah still freezing with everything, the game wouldn't even fully load into it. Running the WMD and it's saying there was hardware problems detected.

Looks like we are back to either the RAM or motherboard being damaged. We may have to wait until you are able to test the RAM in your friend's machine to see which it is.

So my buddy had an older computer that didn't have the right type of memory slots, so I just went out and got a new motherboard, looks like it was the motherboard as everything seems to be working really good now. Time will tell and I might be speaking out of turn but I put it through a WEI test and it actually went through it. I believe what might have happened is the RAM I had before the RAM I currently have wasn't certified and probably clocked too high for the motherboard, and may have damaged it that way. Hence why I went with getting the motherboard first. Thank you so much, writhziden, for all your help and expertise. I really appreciate it, words can't describe. I will let you know within the next day about performance and what not.

That is great news. Best of luck with the new board. Glad you will be keeping us updated on how it runs.

If you go to the SWTOR forum you will find a LOT of threads about this problem -- it apperas to be an optimization incompatibility with high end hardware/systems and at this point it is very well documented on the user end.

What appears to be happening is injected DX9 optimizations (possibly to solve low end hardware performance issues) causing high end video cards to exceed expected limits causing hard blue and black screen crashes.

This has reportedly resulted with corruption of video driver components and DX9 components so the problem appears to effect other games but it really starts with a SWTOR crash.

If you must keep playing this game (until bioware has fixed this) then you probably want to underclock your video card(s) for the time being which will lower the rate of BSOD/BLSOD although it will not remove them completely.

Be ready to reinstall/repair drivers/DX9/game/system files. Backup. Use restore points. Etc.

People ARE experiencing permanent hardware damage from this issue both from the BSODs and from the effect of repeated crash/reboot cycles.

I myself had to cold reset a fuse on a LCD because of a SWTOR BLSOD voltage spike.

Until bioware has fixed this I am not sure how wise it is to play SWTOR with a higher end system.

Frequent BSOD playing Star Wars:The Old Republic
Like it says in the title most of my BSOD are coming when I'm gaming. Some of my BSOD I noticed were hardware faults I'm just not sure if that's because the hardware is failing or because something isn't running properly.
