I need to know the exact BSOD error. Go to C:\Windows\Minidump and give me the latest file from there to examine it and tell you what problem you have.

I just BSOD again (trying it again by accident) and I wrote down the code if that would work?

STOP 0x0000008E(0xC0000005, 0X8452B078, 0XaEC99B54, 0x00000000)


Defected RAM? What's that supposed to mean?

I wouldn't say the RAM is defective, or else i'd expect you to be crashing in just about everything, not just Amnesia. Nevertheless, i wouldn't entirely disregard hardware failure. My guess is Amnesia is trying to access a system file that got corrupted somehow. You could probably fix it with a restore point some time before the date this all occurred. If the blue screen starts to "migrate" into other programs, then i'd start considering hardware failure.

If nothing helps, reinstall the system Smile I had to to that quite recently in order to banish the YouTube blue screens...

Amnesia is the ONLY thing that is crashing. I've tested most of my programs on my PC, and I haven't had problems with them. Also, this is a old PC (Built by Dell (Dell... What a piece of-) in like 2005, so it's a wonder it can run anything!) so I've been thinking of buying a new one, that isn't nescessarily a gaming PC, but will be able to run my games that I have at decent FPS (With Decent, I qualify 40 FPS and above Decent) and at medium settings. I don't expect to get it soon, (maybe in a year or so) so until then, I guess I could live with no Amnesia... I still have a plentiful of other games to play.

As for reinstalling my PC, I would have to wait until something like a HDD failure or something like that for a restore to happen, because one program isn't enough for me to have to restore it.

Would buying a new HDD count as restoring? Because the one I currently have is fairly small... (400 GB with 100GB free space, if anyone is wondering.)

I really need the crash minidump found under C:\Windows\Minidump directory to help you effectively. Can you attach it here?

The BSOD is caused by the file ctaud2k.sys which is part of Creative Audio Driver (WDM). Make sure you update your audio drivers.

I will repair my audio drivers, and if that doesn't work, I'll update as soon as I get the chance!
