Windows 7: bsod playing ddo but don't think its game related

Great, just run it as long as you're used to when you're using Windows. Browse the web, download some stuff, use it. Ubuntu is an OS yes, it's based on the Debian Linux which means Ubuntu is a distribution of it.

It's one of the most well-known.

You're saying zip files are causing your system to crash? Can you specify why you think so?

no, opening the ddo game client is what causes it to bsod i couldnt open ddo while in unbuntu because of a an error saying something about a .zip file

on another note i have been playing browser based games and have just experienced a bsod while playing one so i guess it has to be related to my graphix card or something, is it possible for my graphix card to go bad and would i still be able to run certain things and not others that i use to? because i don't get what has suddenly happened to my comp in the middle of nowhere it just started blue-screening i wasn't downloading anything or doing anything i that i didnt do everyday

and another question is if i play a browser based game in ubuntu and it requires me to download flash or java will it need to install to the usb or it must since it said i was missing the add-ons (and i definitely have them) im only asking because my flashdrive is getting pretty full

The Linux Kernel cannot read Windows-based files unless you use software in Ubuntu like Wine. If you can open other games, it might be the games that's buggy or so.

I don't think so, anything is possible of course. Though, I think you have another situation.

It's cool, no need to play games in Ubuntu. I just wanted you to go around in the system.

==============================================================

Here's some things I want you to try. I didn't remember if you had a Nvidia card or ATI. You can make your way to Windows again, and stop diagnosing in Ubuntu.

Nvidia
i) Make your way to Nvidia Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance.
ii) Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
iii) Download Driver Sweeper
iv) Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your
v) Select all the Nvidia components and analyse them
vi) Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you downloaded previously.
[/INDENT]
2) ATI tutorial

ATI
i) Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
ii) Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
iii) Download Driver Sweeper
iv) Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your
v) Select all the ATI components and analyse them
vi) Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously.
Direct-X

There's also some pointers to your Direct-X files. Option one is that it could be the Direct-X files. Option two is that it could be a part of the Windows system files, as Direct-X is a part of that. To be one the safe side, update your Direct-X files.

Download: DirectX End-User Runtime - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details

okay i thought that you wanted me to run a program that would usually bsod me in ubuntu to see if it was a windows issue or a hardware issue

either way yes i was playing around and doing some research, and just to play what is usually a browser based game i had to download a thin client, and download wine, and download playonlinux, and do all kinds of things, cant imagine what i would have to do to play ddo or probably just the same process, only i got the wmail about your responce b4 i could get the game working so i stopped the process, btw where are those applets stored? i guess i wont be needing any of that stuff anymore

i will be busy with your most recent instructions tyvvvm for continuing to make suggestions and bearing with me as i sure you are fed up with me

okay so i dont think i have either of those GPUs ive included some photos of my dxdiag to ask you something. The first screen says bios 1.00 but as you can see i have downloaded bios that appear more recent and got errors installing them saying my bios setting were newer, as you probably dont remember as you are dealing with another hundred or so cases like mine (i assume) but i also included those screenshots iirc awhile back, actually looking over this i don't remember having dx 11 it must of updated asp well either way im doing the dx update u recommended these are my specs b4 starting

edit: in bios itself it says that it is ver 1.90 even though there is a ver 2.2 available as well it wouldn't let me install it saying that it was already the current version which it obviously is not. and with dxdiag saying bios is ver 1.00 when it is actually 1.90 makes me not sure you can trust everything it says, also the display driver says its older then it should be since i DL'd one from toshiba at the start of this thread

i know you are afk but here are my current frustrating results, also two questions

1. is it possible that while downloading eve online it came with an update to dx11 from 9.0c and that is what is messing with my system

2. if that is possible, how would it still be set to dx11 when i did a out-of-box reset unless it is trying to auto update im pretty sure i use to have 9.0c but maybe im just crazy

sorry for all the frantic posts but i have to claim a prize in game and use it before august 20th and i dont see that happening

No, not at all. I just wanted you to play around with it and see if it would crash.

Which ones? Your data on Ubuntu? You can use it anywhere as long as your flash drive stays the same.

No problem at all mate!

I'd definitely tell Toshiba this. I have never experienced anything like that.

Popular games like Eve may not mess up things like this. If you buy a game, it's likely that it'll reinstall DirectX and it's basically a Microsoft provided utility, or at least it's a Microsoft product. By that, I mean that it shouldn't mess things up.

Nothing crazy about you! It's not possible as far as I'm concerned.

===========================================================

It's quite normal that it says a newer version of DirectX is already installed. If this happens, I'd try downloading DirectX one by one from Filehippo.

Download DirectX 9.0c (Jun 10) - FileHippo.com

Sorry for a messy post!
