Hi, I have been getting BSOD with Max Payne 3 purchased through Steam and have pretty much come to a dead end as to what I can try next.
I have read pretty much everything on the NVidia site, the Rockstar site, and these forums. I have an outstanding system which is only about 3 months old and nothing else has ever caused me problems like MP3.
I have a good knowledge of systems, drivers
versions, tweaks, conflicting services, settings and optimal settings for my hardware and current driver
I have a few services which if they are likely to cause issues, are either stopped or removed (logmein for example). I am confident that every configuration I have tried is free of the typical services that can causes issues.
One thing that is reported in the system health check is the lack of a virus checker through Microsoft system Center. I do have MSE and the Firewall is running ok. I have tried both on and off for everything that I can think off.
I also tried on and off for punkbuster and also pretty much every possible combination of nvidia settings both through the control panel and within the game,
Please can anyone recommend what my next steps should be. I have included the most recent minidump file which was a memory management BSOD. Previously I have had BSOD dumps for Timing but did not keep these.
I suspect there is a setup for GTX 580 SLI or Non SLI and somehow the Muli-Core CPU limited to <4? but its only a guess.
Wasn't sure about where to post system specs so I updated both in my profile and included in this post.
Many thanks for any advice or help.
