For quite a while now, I have some problems playing wow that really bother me.
I tried about everything I could come up with to fix them, but nothing helped...not a bit - that's why I'm hoping that some of you might have an idea how to deal with them.
As stated in the title, for about a month now WoW keeps constantly crashing - at least about 15 times a day, sometimes up to 20 or more.
Not just freezes...the program encounters a critical error and gets closed with Blizzards error tool showing up.
But that's not all - about half the time, I even get a Bluescreen and the PC restarts.
It doesn't happen regularily...sometimes I can play for two hours straight, sometimes the problem occurs twice in five minutes.
I tried changing the memory and testing every module separately. Nothing.
I updated every driver. Reinstalled the OS. Updated the BIOS. Still nothing.
WoW is - as far as I can tell - the only thing that causes those crashes...as long as I don't play, the PC runs completely stable (having it opened in the background is enough to produce that errors, though).
i7 950 @3,07 GHz, Radeon HD 5870, 8 GB Corsair Vengeance, Intel SSD, Win 8 Pro 64 Bit.
It's hard to point out the exact errors, because there is a different one showing up everytime a BSOD occurs.
For example: "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (dxgmms1.sys)"
Crit errors are looking like:
ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal exception!
Program: C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Wow-64.exe
Exception: 0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 0033:000007F7AC865B41
The instruction at "0x000007F7AC865B41" referenced memory at "0x0000000000620008".
The memory could not be "written"/"read".
I mean, yeah, clearly looks like a problem with the RAM...but like I said, I already tried changing it and it did not help.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :/
