    Question weird error

    EXCEPTION!
    CODE {0000005{ACCES VIOLATION} AT IP 044F2E5}

    My friend is getting this weird error every time he plays a game.

    It goes like this: He starts the game and about 20 minutes later the game (any game) bomd him out. He formatted and stuff and it still does it.

    Does anyone know whats wrong?

    My origional guess would be that something is screwed up with DirectX or OpenGL. But you said he formatted so that leads me to believe that it is hardware related. I would say its likely that either his CPU or video card is overheating. If its OC'd unOC it, and get some more ventilation. I guess its also possible his RAM is overheating, but this is unlikely in my opinion.

    definately not one of them....

    It just may be overheating of one of the components.

    I just talked to my friend again, and asked him if anything inside his pc is overheating. he told me that his brothr borrowed his pc for a while and didn't tell hime that his cpu fan blew. So he recently replaced it. Is it posible that hte cpu took damage from the overheating?

    If the CPU fan wasn't on? Absolutely, it's possible.

    Well, he also had a heat sink on. If the cpu took some damage, I think the only option is to replace

    that would be my conclusion... if the cpu fan goes... the heatsink most likely won't be enough to save it. and usually the cpu will still run after this but the smallest amount of heat will throw errors.
