Question about Computers & Internet
Everytime I play a game which requires a disk on my D-drive/CD ROM, it will go for about 45 minutes to an hour, and then I will get a "Blue Quarter Screen of Death" (the top part of the screen will be blue and in it will be the words: "Physical Dump...something, something, etc. etc.") and then the system will completely restart. There will also be times when it will not do the physical dump thing but simply kick me out of the game and send me back to the desktop. It is not a case of insufficient RAM as these games are anywhere from 5 to 13 years old (the newest one being Disciples Gold II - which crashes anywhere from 10-45 minutes, to Starcraft and Hexen II which take closer to an hour or more) and I have more than enough RAM to load/play them. Is my D-drive/ CD ROM simply overheating? I gave it (along with the rest of the computer's innards) a very thorough cleaning with a can of air one time and it did not seem to help (much). Can someone help here please? I am about to commit cybercide on this #@%* computer!
There might be several causes for it but shortest and best way to get rid off this problem is:
Test your RAM (either its corrupted or not) using testing tool
if you RAM is fine then you being encounter of software confliction or OS corruption.
First: maker sure you Antivirus software is up to date and if it is then uninstall your all games then run full scanning then install only one game and try playing it. if still your problem does not go away then restore your OS setting back:
insert your disk (os or recovery) in dvd/cd drive (your Disk must be same one which is you have currently installed in your PC)
Go to star>Run then type ins "sfc /scannow" without quotes.
then let procedure to be completed by PC.
once you are done just rebood your PC.
if you don't wanna all above hassles then just install fresh OS in your sytem and once you install fresh OS you need to run auto updates for new patches and drivers.
