    I had XP SP2 and all my games worked fine, without any crashes. After I got
    Vista, any 3d game I have will crash in 5-15 minutes of playing, every time.
    I wrote down the "technical information" on the blue screen, it read: "Stop
    0x00000124 (0x00000000, 0x8463F9A8, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)". Also, when I
    restart the computer, the "error information" that comes up is the following:

    Problem signature:

    My specs are as follows:
    AMD 4200 X2 dual core
    Radeon x1900xt
    3 Gb RAM
    7600 maxtor drive

    If anyone has any information on how to fix this I would be very grateful,
    thanks.

    There are a couple things you can try. First thing to check is drivers. Stock
    Vista drivers are useful for 2D and basic operation only. Check for updated
    drivers from nvidia and your motherboard manufacturer. Also, you can try
    downloading the latest Directx release. Stock Vista Directx doesn't have the
    more recent 9.0c components. If none of this works, try dropping to 2Gb RAM.
    If your board has 3 or 4 slots, use only slots 1 and 2. I've had similar
    problems, and have isolated the fault to either the chipset or AMD's
    integrated memory controller.

    Don't think this is just an AMD problem... I am tearing my hair out trying to
    get my system to run games again without hard BSOD crashes. I get similar
    error messages that no one seems to be able to figure out........
    My system info is:

    Core 2 Duo 6600 (No OC)
    Intel BOXD975XBXLKR MOBO
    Corsair TWIN2X2048-6400 Xtreme Performance
    ATI X1900 XTX 512MB PCIE Video
    Creative X-Fi Platinum Sound
    WD 200Gb SATA II HD
    ASUS DVD +-RW
    Sony DVD-ROM

    I NEVER had a BSOD crash on this same system with XP................

    So, I too would like to hear from anyone with a suggestion/solution to this
    problem.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    It's not an AMD problem. maybe a motherboard\chipset problem.

    I play most all my usual games fine. Like you I can't remember the last time
    I got a BSOD under XP. But under Vista, I was getting one fairly often.
    Though most of my crashes where with Supreme Commander and 2 patches from
    them fixed the problem, so I don't know that it was ever a Vista problem
    directly (though it shouldn't have been BSODing)

    The ATI 7.2 and 7.4 drivers seem to be the most stable. The 7.3 drivers
    witht eh hotfix actually seemed pretty good. I haven't had a BSOD in over a
    month. I just finsihed Command and Conquer 3, which I played exclusivley
    under Vista 64

    Did you do a format re-install or an upgrade from XP ?

    I have the exact same problem with my brand new vista ultimate 64 bit
    computer...

    Computer specs:
    Intel core two duo 6700 at 2.66ghz
    nvidia 8800gtx
    2gb patriot ram
    nforce 680i mobo
    sound blaster x-fi extreme gamer sound card

    My problem is exactly the same as everyone else's. No more than 10 minutes
    of any game or media will play without a blue screen crash.

    What I have done so far:
    Updated all drivers (sound card, graphics card, etc...)
    Tried disabling caching
    tried disabling virtualization
    tried using onboard sound with updated drivers
    rolled back drivers

    Does anyone have any idea what I can do to solve this problem? I've
    exhausted my options to my knowledge.

    I fixed my problem. I updated my mobo bios. Go to your mobo's website and
    update the bios.

    Here is info from latest restart. It doesn't happen only when I'm
    playing a game. Once it happened when I was running Media Player, once
    when I had just started up and once when I was in the Device Manager
    looking for info on my sound card

    Hi guys. Just done some digging. It sounds like it may be a conflic
    between the sound card drivers and the gfx drivers. To check thi
    disable your sound card in device manager then try the game. There hav
    been a few reports of users who have upgraded from xp to vista havin
    this problem. Havn`t found a solution though
