Random BSOD while gaming MW2

Hey!

I've got a problem getting BSOD while playing Modern Warfare 2: Multiplayer.

Since the game was patched last week (i also got the DLC pack), i'm getting bsod randomly when starting a MP game. The machine dumps the physical memory, and then freeze (and heat up like crazy if not powered off!)
I did a total reinstall to try helping the problem, but it occured again today. My computer is a MacBook Pro, running Windows 7 Pro (Bootcamp and all latest updates.)

What to do? (.dmp attached)

This one was called by keymagic.exe. Keymagic is usually viral. I suggest you run a virus scan and if it isnt a virus I would remove it

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffff80002dfcf00, memory referenced
Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000008, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80002dfcf00, address which referenced memory

As a fellow gamer and enoyer of that game, id say that it sounds like your system just can't handle the game itself. Do you get these random BSOD when you aren't playing MW2? If you do not, then do you get them when you play MW2 SP? If you do then that is the system saying you don't have the right amount of memory to run it. If you do not, then you may have just enough to run it in SPM but not enough to play MP.

Going by what ZIgZag said, keymagic sounds like a keygen prog to me, which would suggest you are playing a pirtaed version of the MW2, that would also cause the BSOD when trying to play online. Plus most keygens are deep rooted viruses that will root themselves so deep in your system that you can't get rid of them.

Hmm, Thats interesting.

The game is completely geniue, and so are Windows and All other programs on the machine! I'll check up on that program.

But it's exactly the same bsod as the ones i got before i did the reinstall.

It all started after the latest patch. It happens in both gamemodes, but no idea how frequent in SP, as i rarely plays that.

if the BSOD started after the last patch then you should check on the MW forums as well, see if anyone else is having this problem. But like I said, it might just be your system isn't strong enough to play it. Same situation was happening to me on my moms system, I kept getting the BSOD but not on my brothers system which had a bigger HDD and more memory. Also, check your processor or graphics card. Odd i know, but sometimes if you get to play online its sending to much info for your processor and graphic card to keep up with. Remember the recommended specs aren't just there for looks. The bare minum may be what you have to have to run the game, but they don't mean that it wont still fux your system over.

And yeah definately check into that keymagic. AND one more thing, I looked up the keymagic.sys file and found something intresting... if you are getting this error: Stop Error 0x0A

then Stop Error 0x0A can be due to conflicts between third party keyboards and especially tasking quickly between networking.<-- found that on TechSpot board. Dude had the same problem, but only with a different game.

BSODs - TechSpot OpenBoards <--thats the topic

Hi Friend,

Have you tried adding the folder of the game you are playing to your anti-virus's exception? Mine was hanging because of my anti-virus all along. I thought it was my video card. Most games are treated as trojan or anti-virus by Anti-Viruses such as avast. So try adding it in the exception.
