pc blue screen & reststart why?
What are your computer specs?
E6650 intel 2,33, 9600gt, 2gb 800hmz ram
Try checking you're computer temperatures.
If you don't have any way of reading your PC temps, try downloading this. Post back with the readings if you can.
Not sure if you have done it or if it is the cause of the problem, but try looking for your latest video card drivers here.
Also, has this happened before?
yes happened before! cpu 39c gpu40c rainbow six in game cpu44c gpu46
Does this happen only when you run Vegas 2 or when you start your computer?
There are many things that can cause BSOD!
Conflicts in hardware or software
And much more!
Have you added new hardware or software before this problem started!
Here is a link to check, but there are many more!
CPU temperatures are fine, same for the GPU.
Maybe you should try downloading the latest drivers for you're video card or maybe even reinstall the game, make sure to delete the Vegas 2 directory if you do (C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2)!
EDIT: Lethal is right, there is alot of reasons for a blue screen. I'm trying to find out what exactly is causing that blue screen.
If it's only Vegas 2 then you likely have a corrupt game file.
Your temperatures are fine!
If you can run other FPS with no problem, then the issue is with Vegas 2.
I would suggest a complete clean reinstall!
Before you start, copy your PlayerProfile.ini file to another drive or folder.
Find it here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Default\My Documents\My Games\Ubisoft\R6Vegas2
(This contains your key and could save problems later)
You can actually copy that entire folder to save all settings.
By complete I mean uninstall Vegas 2.
Then delete the folder above.
Delete this folder:
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2
C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2
Delete all entries in you registry that pertain to Vegas 2
Export your entire registry before you start.
Before you reinstall, download this patch!
Install Vegas 2
Install the patch
(This will eliminate the auto update and is more secure)
Copy your profile (with your key) that you saved before you uninstalled.
Reboot .. run the game, and pray!
You can also install the map pack and Comcast Event map after you are up and running.
