It may simply be a case that Empires2 is causing memory corruption. That having been said, if you run these to tests it can test your ram and find the misbehaving driver.


* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a raid update its Driver.




Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Driver verifier

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Special Pool", "Force Pending I/O Requests" and "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen.
Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly.
The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out.
If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation.

Reboot into Windows (after the crash) and turn off Driver Verifier by going back in and selecting "Delete existing settings" on the first page, then locate and zip up the memory dump file and upload it with your next post.

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

The OS is not yet ready so it's normal to see some errors. Run all the tips that Zigzag told you just to make sure.
AOE2 runs better than in Windows 7 (at least for me):no more pink water and distorted colors only in the main menu. :)

You can run Win8 in a virtual machine to be safe (no more rebooting your pc when Win8 crashes)
For playing AOE2 in a vm, Vmware Player is recommended: Mouse movement is better than for example in Virtualbox (tested with AOE2).
Look at the virtualisation tutorials on the forum for more information.

Good Luck

If you are still having issues, it looks to me that by uninstalling ManyCam, issues will resolve.

I'd also visit Realtek's site to download and install the latest HDAudio driver.

Would also be a good idea to visit the manufacturer's site of the wireless driver to download/install latest version.
