Please post the game which u tried to install and the operating system you use.Or is it a console error? This enables anyone to figure out if there are any known compatability issues b/w the game and the OS.

    Hi... for your information, crysis is a resource intensive game and it takes whatever performance upgrades you throw at it. You may be thinking that your graphic card, the 6600 GT is listed in the "Minimum requirement category" but believe me, i got merely 22-23 frames even though iam using a 7600GT and a dual core processor running at 2ghz with 2gb ram.


    Is your system is crashing only when playing CRYSIS? If so your hardware configuration is not suuficient enough.Also uninstall the game and reinstall in a different directory [different path].


    My sincere advice is that you upgrade your system ASAP because "CRYSIS" is the Most resource intensive game out there in the market. Also download latest nvidia drivers from here for your graphic card.
    And about the e74 error : The error is related to the GPU [graphics processing unit].Its the right time to change the GPU.

When i click on training it causes a crash dump


here are instruction to fix crash dumo to your sega football manager 2011

Step 1shock.gifpen up your steam
Step 2: Go onto your games list
Step 3: Right click on Football Manager and select properties
Step 4: Select the Local files tab on the far right
Step 5: Click the option Verify integrity of game cache
Step 6: Click the option Defragment game cache
It should now be complete

this worked for me

I'm sure there are other people out there who have had there game destroyed by Crash Dumps errors, sometimes screwing your save, sometimes even preventing you from starting new games forcing you to re-install only to come across the same problem later down the line.

So here is my 2 part guide to Crash Dumps, part 1 is how to set your game up to minimize the chances of your game ever getting this error, and part 2 is what to do to recover your save (If possible) and get your game back to a working state if you had this error already. Part 1 pretty much lists all issues that cause Crash Dumps and to set your self up to prevent it from happening.

Crash Dumps Prevention

There are certain things that increase your chances of getting an error, here is a list

1) FMRTE - Just dont go there, it screws your data base up beyond repair, you will not be able to get your corrupt save back if you have used this editor. Sometimes its been to known to cause damage to your windows registry too, unless SI make an official in game editor, using third party programs like this is all to risky stay away.

2) Size of Game - Even though I believe I have found the solutions to 99% of crash dump issues, it does not change the fact the game is not without major issues, the games coding causing endless memory leaks that lead to Crash Dumps errors.
So what I'm saying is try to go easy on your database size, either slow or at most medium size data base when starting a new game.
Also dont go crazy with the amount of leagues you select to be playable, if you have a good system 10 leagues at max.
If you must have lots of leagues and large data base I recommend you have at least 6GB of DDR2 or DDR3 ram, if you have an older system DDR ram will not cut it for crazy data base sizes.

3)Everything Up to Date ? - Make sure the following are up to date
+ Graphics Card Driver (Use manfactures site, sometimes windows will not find the most up to date driver)
+ Java - Make sure you have the latest Version
+Direct X - Latest Version your system is compatible with

4) General Settings in Game These are optional but I recommend you use these settings to prevent errors.
Uncheck the following boxes
+Use Skin Cache
+ Enable Data Collection (This is an important one, it will stop FM constantly building up the RAM useage and prevent Crash Dumps)
+ Play in Windowed Mode, Minimize, and Maximize Every Hour.
+ Disable sounds, and 3D cameras, the 3D sucks anyway text all the way.
+Play with Autosave weekly, 3 file rolling save for back ups, better safe than sorry.
+ Uncheck Threading, if you have a Dual Core processor, you do not need this to be checked, it takes away a complication. However if you have one processor with Threading technology keep it ticked, other wise the game performance will be poor.

5) Your Hardware Before Playing FM 2010 you need to be confident your hardware is all fully working, so you can rule that out if you need to trouble shoot in case you get the Crash Dump.
Consider and do the following before installing the game

+Power Supply - Is it at a high enough Voltage for my Graphics card ?, find out and upgrade power supply if need be, you should not be using a Graphics card if your power supply is under the recommended amount, your system will become very unstable, let alone Football Manager.

+Hard Drive Error Free, run Chkdsk, a windows tool to see if your hard drive has any errors.
To run chekdsk press the windows button and R, then in the run box type in CMD, the in the black command box type in chkdsk and press enter.
You should have a report of no errors, or windows will fix errors

+ Faulty RAM - This was the culprit for me, run a program called MEMTEST86, you need to download and Burn it to CD, restart your PC with the CD in the drive and let it scan.
If you are error free all good, if not note which RAM slot is reporting errors, remove or replace that RAM.http://www.memtest86.com/

+Dust Bunnies - Your system would be unstable in general if you have these, if it is a little unstable check the innards of your PC for obvious dust, blow to free dust from sensitive areas.

If you ever get Blue Screen errors while browsing, gaming, multi tasking, then Football Manager will certainly Crash Dump you ***.

Okay if you follow all these steps prior to installing your game you are very unlikely to get the crash dumps error again.


please rate me if this help you thanks...

When i turn the xbox on it says system error. contact xbox customer service. E74


The E74 error indicates there is a hardware malfunction inside the console. If the console is under warrenty you may want to send it in, but they will send you a replacement refurbished console. If you want to try to fix it your self the RROD fix usually fixes the E74 since the RROD usually follows the E74. Check out this video. I hope this helps,

Hi my xbox360 wont turn on i tried to fix the e74 error when i turn it on to overheat it just shut down please help asap.


Josh_Wilson5

In regards to the E74 error unlike the normal RROD the E74 error normally means that the GPU is already damaged. So with the systems that are brought to me with this issue I usually recommend the customer send the system in if it is covered under the 3 year warranty because if the GPU is damaged then it can not be fixed with the DIY kits. I myself have only had one system that had the E74 error not come back after running a fix on it. So at this point you may need to replace the motherboard.

Note there is some walk throughs on the Internet where people have used heat guns to reflow the soder on the RROD fixes. I have not tried these my self as I do not have a heat gun to test with. You may try them but if the GPU is endeed damaged then this will not work.

Hope this helps

Got on red light,E74


An E74 error is when the lower-right quadrant of the ring piece indicator flashes red and displays an error message in multiple languages: "E74 System Error. Contact Xbox Customer Support". The error is caused when there's a video problem with the Xbox's hardware scaler chip being damaged. As of April 14, 2009, the E74 error is now covered by the three-year extended warranty.
