Windows 7: Starcraft System Crash

Windows 7 RC 7100
 
 

will the starcraft fix work for AoE?

I have almost the same problem for both starcraft and AoE II. The colors are screwed up when I launch and play the game, but anywhere from 5 minutes to 120 minutes in the screen turns lines of pink and yellow. Technically the game's still running but I can't see anything. When I try to exit the game the screen goes completely pink and then my monitor looses video connection entirely. I have to hard reset. I suspect the graphics card, but I'll try the starcraft.exe fix.

Solution is to be found here. (Deactivate all but one core.)

It's a bit messy, but I didn't find any other solution.

Will write to Blizzard for the rescue.

Ok, this surprisingly does not work for me either. *LOL* Tried core 0 and 1. Will investigate further.

Me neither

Actually, if you read that thread all the way to the bottom, I posted like response 31 saying that it doesn't work for me, either.

Windows 7 Ultimate RTM
 
 

try updating to the latest (beta) video driver - nvidia forceware 191.03
and nforce - that seemed to at least improve things, as I haven't yet had a crash since I updated.

@hax: Interesting approach, yet I don't know what nforce is - or at least I thought it is only for Netbooks etc.? *edit* Installed nvidia forceware beta drivers - still crashes!

"Enable CPU throttling" doesn't help (which I first thought) too.

Um, I just read the one solution thread to its end and found:

Quote:
... I noticed for every guy tagging along here, one thing we all have in common is the 8800GTS/GTX-series. ... You really shouldn't be running any driver past 178.xx on a G80 core like the 8800GTS/GTX sometimes it's been known to hurt the G80 and cause serious problems. Also you never notice that you're sc render in 639x479 which usually happens.
I do have + use a 8800GS with it seems to new drivers. What about you guys?!

Ok, I checked it out now at the laptop (should've done it before), where a mobile ATI card is at work and no problems at all! For me it looks like I've got bad luck with my "cheap graphics card" decision! -.-

Windows 7 Professional x64 RTM
 
 

Wow, lots of feedback on this thread.
Yeah, my lenovo thinkpad has a dedicated Quadro FX 570M GPU that uses the G84 core.
Since updating to the RTM version of Windows 7 however, I no longer have this issue it seems. I can't remember having the freezing issue for the last month or so of using RTM, instead of the RC.
Has anyone else had this

Flash player/Starcraft crash into BSOD of Memory_managment
Keep getting a Memory_managment BSOD, usually occurs after my flash player or SC2 crashes in my web browser. Checked the dump file and keep getting a ntoskrnl.exe causing it. Any advice? I have ruled out RAM problems and have attempted sfc scans but it keeps failing to fix the corrupt files.
