I've gotten the same thing a few times before playing StarCraft. I didn't make a deal out of it because it's a 12 year old game. But maybe this is a Blizzard coding issue.

Speaking of Micro$oft, I found out why the world will end in 2012. Windows 8 is being predicted to be made at that exact year XD

Sounds like you should try backing the RAM down to default speed/voltage and see how it goes.


Oh yea. I'm running W7 Ultimate with FF as my main browser. I have no problems with Java and Shockwave with either FF or IE.

^^ I've already taken everything back down to stock in hopes of fixing the problem. It didn't work. I was afraid my new WD HDD was the culprit, but then memtest gave me 5 errors at only 30% coverage of unused RAM. Seems like the overclock did do some wear and tear on this memory. I guess Microsoft is really not to blame. Sorry!

The only thing I'm really curious about is why that only started up after I switched to my new HDD. Maybe it's a mixture of both? On Tuesday (next free day), I'll test by plugging in my old dieing HDD that I kept and see what happens. I didn't wipe anything off it, so it should be plug and play. If it runs smoothly and the problem turns out to be with the HDD, I may consider asking newegg for an RMA because I can't possibly live with everything crashing after 30 seconds of use. I'm also going to peek into the BIOS for any tweaks I can try.

70.5% tested and 10 more errors (total of 15).

PS: I love automerge double post.

100% tested and 20 total errors.
