Windows 7: Wolfenstein 2009: WHEA-Logger Event ID: 18 crash

The card is a single-slot cooling, reference-design Asus EAH4850 512 MB. To make it run this cold I had to mess within it's Powerplay values in BIOS with RBE, but Asus released a official BIOS update that reduces the clock to 160/250 on idle and it's even better. It idles at 50 Celsius and gets to 85-90 in heavy gaming.
Making a fan profile would be useless since it auto-adjusts the fan duty-cycle from Powerplay and it is much better than a constant rpm.
The drivers for the Asus P5Q MB are the official Intel P45 drivers, last version, installed with -OVERALL so they can overwrite all Microsoft default stuff.
No overclocking whatsoever on any system component.

I had a pair of those cards (with the glaciator fansinks) and creating a profile did affect the fanspeed and temps.

It sounds like it's software based, since XP ran fine. The machine check could just be a driver incorrectly referencing non-existent memory address etc - What driver exactly is hard to say.

I'm also using Cat 9.8 and haven't had any issues with them

So all the chipset drivers actually installed correctly?

No errors showing in device manager?

Everything is tip-top. No errors whatsoever. Also, as I said, FurMark and OCCT GPU burn tests ran for hours without any errors, with the GPU reaching 97-98 Celsius (brrrrrrr... I certainly remember things were cooler back in XP)
My card has the reference design fan which already runs at 12.000 rpm during this game. I also have a Arctic Cooling exhaust fan just above the card, blowing all the produced hot air outside of the case. Another similar fan is doing the same for the CPU, so that leaves me with 0 fans to go, as this is what Asus P5Q offers, 2 chassis fan headers.
It must be some compatibility issue, exacerbated by higher resolutions and temps. With the game on 1680x1050, I only had 2-3 crashes, all of the recoverable to the desktop. With 1080p I have to press the reboot button on the case, and it crashes within the first 30 minutes of play with no exception.

The game crashed at 1680x1050 too after a few hours, but the temps were reasonable and in no way high for a E7200 or a HD 4850, you can take a look for yourselves. This crash happened once on the ATI driver and once on the exe file, both problems were recovered by Windows (no rebooting necessary like the 1080p processor issue described in the first post).
I am playing now the game in Administrator mode and with Vista (no SP selected) compatibility, and I managed to achieve two clean runs of 2-4 hours each. I certainly hope this is a Wolfenstein issue, and Windows 7 is 100% ready for gaming
Do you have monitor Dell U2410 ? This is wrong. Try another monitor.

This is an old thread and I finished Wolfenstein months ago through the crashes. But... I really wonder how that Dell U2410 can be wrong somewhere? IPS 24" etc etc etc I'd throw my (listed in Sys Specs) Fujitsu TNT out the window anytime just to have that one.

Try 3DMark 06. My U2410 crash during test always. Only picture test run still. My U2410 randomly crash in Wolfenstein and Resident Evil 5. When i connect my old Eizo - no problem. U2410 is **** i back him to Dell. In 2D is good.

I got the exact same problem - also WHEA Logger, eventID: 18 - while playing COD Modern Warfare (btw, not MW2. That one seems to work just fine!)
But it's strange, because about 2 months ago I managed to play Modern Warfare perfectly on Windows 7 64 bits.

So it has to be due to me installing some bad driver or something...

SOLUTION (for me) :)

Ok, so after A LOT of troubleshooting, I found this: I went to my computer, right clicked and clicked properties, went to device manager, and then to sound, audio, and game controllers. The problem for ME was an audio problem. I play WoW a lot and was getting blue screens with this EXACT SAME error message. Under my sound there were TWO audio devices: ATI High Definition Audio Device and just plain old High Definition Audio Device. ONE of these is the Graphics Card (ATI RADEON 5750 in my case) Audio Device and the other is the Motherboard Device (I think). Anyway, I disabled the ATI audio device (can be done by right clicking on it) and I LEFT THE OTHER ONE ON! Presto, no more blue screens while gaming. I hope this solution is helpful to you, it worked for me. This has something to do with two sound devices being on at once and your processor getting confused (I think, once again). Also, my ATI Audio Device is to be used with HDMI equiptment. In my case, I have an LED screen, but I don't believe it is in fact HDMI, as I need an adapter to plug it in at all. I tried to make as much of my own conclusions as possible here, and undoubtedly some of them are wrong, but anyway, this worked for me, maybe it will work for you!

Thx for registering on this forum to explain your solution!

Unfortunately, I dont see two sound devices appearing in the hardware manager...

But now that I read my previous post again, I cant ever remember I had that problem lol.
I think its was eventually fixed otherwise i would still remember all this

But now i'm having issues with bfbc2.
A lot of gamers have pc lockups and sound freezes, only with this game! And im one of them.
