I have been at the Oblivion forums and they are at the end of what help they can provide me. This seemed the next logical place to check. My XP is properly updated. I have all the drivers and chipsets updated for my MOBO, my vid card and my audio card. I have my onboard Realtek disabled in the bios and the software is uninstalled. I have put a /3gb toggle in my boot.ini file and I have my pagefile size at 3gig. I have run both Spybot and AVG and have no spyware. I have run Registry Optimizer and fixed all the errors it gave.
I cannot comprehend why the game keeps crashing like this. I am loading my pc in cleanboot mode all the time now. I only get this problem while playing Oblivion. I loaded up another resource intensive game, on max settings, and got no such error. I have also reinstalled the game and it is completely updated as well. Still getting the crash. I just went into the event viewer and I have this info: Faulting application oblivion.exe, version 126.96.36.1996, faulting module oblivion.exe, version 188.8.131.526, fault address 0x00098749. Half the time I am getting a physical memory dump blue screen and the other half the game just freezes, requiring a reboot. I also got a 0xc0000005 error, but don't really know what to do with it.
I am running AVG antivirus.
I believe this to be a software problem, but I cannot determine what is interfearing.
Any help here is greatly appreciated. I realize this may be tough to do since it is in regards to this game only, but I believe in you geeks.
