In Topic: Kernal_Data_InpageError and various other Bsod Codes with frequent play

Yesterday, 11:01 PM

Naturally make sure your drivers are up to date, that dust on your hardware is kept to a minimum, and maybe try resetting your BIOS to defaults.

If I remember correctly, having dealt with something similar myself, Kernal_Data_InPage errors indicate that your page file (C:\pagefile.sys in your case) is becoming corrupt, likely due to damage or dysfunction of the drive it resides on. If that's the cause, the BSoD will be more likely to trip during times of relatively heavy memory usage, such as a game. As you have 8 GB of physical RAM, you could probably just turn off your page file and the BSoDs may cease, but if the hard drive is dying, that's just treating a symptom.

Could you give us some more info on your hard drive, such as make, model, and age?

Drivers should be available on your motherboard's manufacturer website for the specific product; being discontinued shouldn't matter. If you're still having trouble, feel free to post that too (make, model) and I'll see if I can find it. Updating those are a big deal when getting BSoDs.

And take a look at that Hierarchy chart from Tom's. Note that the A4-5300 is way down the list, whereas the Athlon 750/760K is near the top.

I'll add as well that they rank the performance of the A4-5300 on par with Intel's Core 2 Duos of six years ago, which places it a very minor step above GW2's minimum requirement. I could see that possibly being a problem even in places we don't normally think about a CPU bottleneck, like open world. 35 FPS doesn't necessarily sound unusual for this platform.

Nice post Satenia.How good is it for soloing and is it best to use healing surge or signet?

You can retrait for free anywhere in the world. I'd take advantage of that and drop at least two points in Tactics if no one is going to be around to benefit from Phalanx Strength.

My advice on warrior heals is that Healing Signet will be more useful in places where you expect low, sustained damage (or if you know you'll dodge the big hits). Healing Surge handles occasional, big spikes better. For example, I find Healing Signet works fine in most areas, but I always swap to Surge when I do the Golem Mk II world boss because if I'm going to take any damage there it will probably be a lot all at once.

The reason why I changed my cpu is because I fried my mobo. I was looking to get the mobo for my cpu but unfortunately nobody is selling it right now as I expected something different fron intel.

Oh, yes, I understand. There's been several years of new CPU sockets since then.

So this starts happening a few minutes into the game, no matter what you're doing in game? Does it seem related to any particular content (like WvW)? If you turn all of your video settings to low or off, does it seem to help at all?

Do you keep track of your system temperatures, and is there any chance you're getting some overheating?

What are you doing when you get these framerate drops? Or does it not even seem to matter?

Also, if you've still got the i5-760 system, I'd transplant the GTX 750 Ti to it. That AMD A4 is considerably slower, I can absolutely imagine it choking in such a CPU-intensive game as GW2. Take a look at the hierarchy chart: http://www.tomshardw...ock,3106-5.html
