While I'm trying to play Guild Wars, my laptop freezes suddenly, and I have to press and hold down the on/off button to turn it off.
System specs are:

Gateway
Intel (centrino) Core 2 duo processors
NVidia GeForce 9800M GTS Cuda with 1 GB discrete video memory
4 gigs of RAM
Windows Vista Home 64 bit

I have just updated the graphics drivers, so that cannot be the problem. In fact, after updating, the problem came almost immediately, whereas with the older driver, the problem occurred after playing for a little bit.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Akane

P.S.: If the computer manages to recover from the freeze, it tells me that a device driver stopped working. I assume that's the display driver. But why?

Hi :)

Sorry I didn't get a reply notification for this thread, and in the meantime I contacted NCSoft's tech support, and they made me download a graphic card driver from Gateway's website. At first I thought it helped, but it didn't. :)

I will download the analyzing software and post the results.

Thank you in advance!

Akane

Okay, I ran the test and this is what it said:



Analysis
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crash dump directory: C:\Windows\Minidump

Crash dumps are enabled on your computer.


No crash dumps have been found on your computer


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Crash dumps are enabled and no crash dumps have been found on your computer. In case your computer does experience sudden reboots it is likely these are caused by malfunctioning hardware or power failure. Then it's suggested you contact the support department of the manufacturer of your system or test your system with a memory test utility for further investigation.


Thing is, my computer doesn't restart/reboot, it completely freezes. No mouse movement, nothing.
Also, this is a brand new laptop, just bought it a couple of months ago. :S

I didn't understand what you were saying, sorry.
What's BSOD? Is this really what I'm supposed to do? :S

BSOD is Blue Screen Of Death
Let me try to make it easier for you since the previous post was confusing. There are two methods on how to see what the BSOD says. I will outline both for you and you can use which ever is easier for you. :)


You must be in safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER and then PROPERTIES
Click ADVANCED and then click the SETTINGS button In the Startup And RECOVERY section
Uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART. Click APPLY and OK.

Now reboot. This will result in the BSOD error being halted so you can now copy and reply with the STOP ERROR and any parameters.



BSOD Fix Outside Windows



Start your system and at the Second post screen tap on F8 to get to the Boot Menu
Scroll down to the line that says "Auto Start On Error" and highlight it.
Click Enter to disable it
The system should reboot and if not then do so.
When the BSOD shows it will stop so that you can reply with the full error message

Thank you for the clarification. :)

Thing is, my computer doesn't show the blue screen of death at all. It just freezes up, i still see the game and everything on my screen, but nothing moves at all. No mouse movement, no keyboard response whatsoever.
I have to press and hold down the ON button to get the laptop to shut down.

Might be some worthy information also:
The game's tech support had me run Prime95 Torture Test, which I ran for 10 hours and 19 minutes.
The results said 0 errors, 0 warnings, so there seems to be absolutely nothing wrong with my laptop.

Could it be that the game client is not stable on my system?

How did you run this if the system freezes up?
Does it run in memory only?

Download Speedfan (The download link is in the first line of the second paragraph), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.

My computer only freezes up when I play Guild Wars. Never froze during anything else, not even when I was rendering an 8000x8000 px 3D image with a 3D program for 5 hours.

So it didn't freeze during the torture test either.


I will check the temps in a second.

I ran HWMonitor if that's all right too...
The temps are as follows:

ACPI TZS0 = 46 C
TZS1 = 46 C

Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo P8400
Core 0 = 36 C
Core 1 = 35 C

GeForce 9800M GTS
GPU Core = 44 C

HDD = 50 C

Go to
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and click Enter
Click on the Startup tab
Find any non-essential running programs that can be started when needed and uncheck them. Restart system when prompted. You will recieve a popup on restart about the System Configuration program running. Check the box that says something to the affect about don't start or run this program.
Try the game again. It sounds like to many background programs running on a game that needs lots of resources. Let us know how that works for you.

Hi,

I only have my display driver, touchpad mouse, and a few essentials running in the background. I have disabled things there like quickstarts long time ago.
Also, Guild Wars is not a resource hog, even if it were, I have plenty of space to run it.

I don't have anything running in the background when I play GW, not even firefox. It's simply because I like to keep my system tray clean, and when i play, I play. :)

So I have to say, it still freezes, yeah :)
