    Full crash / BSOD - World of Warcraft


    Hi there

    I'm experiencing full crashes at seemingly random intervals while playing WoW for a long time on a 4month old build.

    I've not had this in any other game, even more taxing games like Shadow of Mordor / Alien Isolation.

    When it crashes the screen immediately blanks out and sound will continuously play, a single random tone, until the system is shut off.

    I've only seen a BSOD once and this was 'critical structure corruption'

    I've tried uninstalling AMD drivers and reinstalling or altering WoW settings but this has been occuring for multiple patches.

    Nothing out of the ordinary on the temps when it happens.

    I've attached an SFdebug file and would appreciate any assistance possible

    MANY thanks,

    Allen

    Both BSOD's were indicating Memory Corruption. Suggest that you run memtest:
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    For at least 6-8hours unless errors occur earlier.

    I've ran it for a few hours and 8/8 passes without an error.

    I checked the timestamps on the minidumps and they are from some time ago whereas my system is crashing every 10mins or so on wow.exe.. Just not to a BSOD and requiring a hard reboot
