Windows 7: BSOD Playing Saints Row 4, several errors - Custom Rig

25 Aug 2013   #1

BSOD Playing Saints Row 4, several errors - Custom Rig

I have played 3 other games successfully, including Civ 5, and League of Legends.

However, as soon as i boot up the opening cutscene - after choosing my difficulty - i get a black screen after about 10 seconds of the cutscene, followed by a BSOD with white lines, making it difficult to read.

The rig is new, and i have reinstalled the drver in the second report(located below) twice. I've also disabled 3 of my 4 audio drivers, thinking that was the problem. I have a report from everest included as a text file, and my specs are saved to my profile!

I appreciate the help! I just built this rig, its my first.

Thank you for your help - I believe I have uploaded the requested file - does this check out now? Or am I still missing something?

Unfortunately your Windows is counterfeit.
You're using an OEM_SLP key on a retail motherboard, you would have to format
and activate windows using a legitimate product key.

4) No discussion of piracy or anything illegal is allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc).

wow. are you serious?

Thank you for the help, this really sucks. My friend told me he knew a good seller on ebay - I should have guessed when I let him buy it for me what happened. My system will still be okay once i delete this CRAP, right? Is there a way to check that the rest of my software is legit?

This is spiraling downward quickly..Is that my only problem?

Can i resubmit this or edit it this week when i find a real operating system? I dont want banned from here, and i just built this rig- i cant believe this.

Format the drive and activate windows using a legitimate copy.
Then follow this tutorial and post the results along side the files generated by the SFDT
and then we will be able to assist.

What other software are you referring to?

I'm going to get right on this - I'll just go to best buy - One more thing, is there a way to check if anything else is counterfeit, as far as my software goes? I have a copy of Norton i havent set up yet, from the same guy.

I know that's unrelated to my original post.

Thanks again, I'd like too be able to delete this original post if I can, as well - I really dont want to be the guy with a fake windows. I'd like real help, not rolled eyes.

Sorry I can't help you with Norton unfortunately.
Everyone can become a victim, just make sure you comeback with a fresh legal copy :) .

Thanks! Take care - I'll be back soon when I get updated.

I hope this fixes my problem.

This sucks too, I just got up on this pc and saved all my steam games to it. I'll have to tell people about my "friend" and his computer "repairs".
