Solved: 10 Months, 2 Weeks, 5 Days, 6 Hours, 50 Minutes, 53 Seconds ago Amnesia Blue Screens My PC

I don't know what the hell is going on here. I could play the game fine before (with the occasional crash because I screw up my settings) and now, out of the blue (No pun intended), it blue screens my PC with a stop message.

STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC000000E 0x84AE6370 0xEBF1CB54)

It's something like that, I took that from someone elses post on the forums because it looks really similar to the one I'm having.

INFO OF THE CRASH: That code happens as soon as Steam finishes doing Preparing to Launch Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

WHAT I HAVE DONE: Reinstalled, verified, restarted PC. Nothing has worked, except the game worked ONCE after reinstalling, then it started Blue Screening again.

Help!


System Info
Intel Pentium D 2.66GHz
ATI Radeon X600 Latest AMD Drivers
465 GB HDD
Windows XP
1GB RAM

Were there any other things you've installed before the blue screens started occurring (e.g. hardware drivers)?

Well, I may have installed a few custom stories that I never got around to playing, but I highly doubt that's what is causing the crash. Also, I may have installed some games (But I cannot remember installing them) so that may of caused the issue. No Hardware drivers have been installed or anything has been installed, and no change in System (like more RAM or Video Card change). I have absolutely no clue what's causing this...

Do you get a blue screen when running any other game or OpenGL applications?

I would have to test with another OpenGL game, but I can run any other DirectX game just fine (like L4D, FEAR, CoD 4, etc.) I'll test Penumbra Black Plague and then report back.

REPORT: Penumbra's worked fine, along with Minecraft.

uninstall the omega drivers and install the last catalyst (10.2) from AMD for such old cards.

Going to 10.2 didn't work; I uninstalled Omega Drivers, then installed 10.2, but nothing.

Is it a laptop or a desktop?

Try to run the game again and when it fails (or right after) attach me here the file HPL.log found under Documents\Amnesia\Main folder.

A desktop.

The game doesn't even open the launcher, so the HPL.log is from the last time the game actually ran.
