Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Getting BSOD after 5 min playtime on BFBC2.

I havent always had this problem, it just popped up a couple of weeks ago. And now my computer allways freezing up the ingame visual and goes too bluescreen in the background. i get an error reporting from windows7 suggesting too correct the problem online but no solution is available.. IS it a hardware failure or a program interfearing with the game?

Win update is enabled. Dont know why it was disabeled in the first place.
Please forgive me for not understanding this mather that well. It is now 5 days since i removed all the components in my machine, used comressed air too get rid of dust and dirt.. Rebuilt the machine and started the Battlefield: Bad Company2 game again. But same problem agian. 5 min playtime and froze up again with bluescreen in the background. I cant make much sence of the error report so i still have no idea of how too fix it.. Could it be a program causing this?

Ram test did fine, all ram chips is ok.. Graphics is also ok, updated graphics driver also before stresstest. Havent run the cpu stress test yet.. But this is the only game that makes my computer go bluescreen.

Again, 0x124 is usually a hardware error. I'd be interested to see if the CPU test also induces a crash.

I've noticed issues with Punkbuster and TuneUp Utilities in the event logs.
Please uninstall them until we're done troubleshooting.

There are activation errors in the event logs:

Have you tried to activate Windows? If it failed (as the entries state) then I'd suggest contacting Microsoft for assistance.

Here's the suggestion from this KB article ( ):
Error code 0x80070005


When you try to use a KMS host, a KMS client, or a MAK to activate one or more computers, you may receive the following error message: 0x80070005
Access denied the requested action requires elevated privileges.


This issue occurs if User Access Control (UAC) does not let the activation processes run in a non-elevated command prompt. Workaround

To work around this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as.
  2. Click The following user, and then select Administrator in the User name list.
  3. Click OK.
  4. At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: slmgr.vbs
