Very last section, for your video card:

Compat      = 0x00000000

That kinda worries me. I don't know for sure if video cards are supposed to do that, but I get the feeling they're not.

32-bit OS[edit]

I also noticed you are still using 32-bit Windows 7. This is probably not a direct reason for crashes, but I suggest upgrading to 64-bit if you'll ever have an occasion, in Guild Wars 2 you can't set texture size higher with 32-bit OS, and you can't make use out of your 4GB ram, your system is seeing just 3.25 out of it.—

I'm aware of the memory issue. Texture size doesn't matter since my graphics card is still really low end. I don't have any real reason to legally buy 64-bit at this point, since no other applications would actually benefit meaningfully, and I'd get more mileage from simply upgrading to better hardware overall. Could just jump to Win8 or something as well... Vili 点 User talk:Vili 06:41, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
From what I know, Win8 is designed for mobile devices, i.e. phones and tablets and such. In fact, a lot of it requires a touchscreen. Pass, for a desktop, imo. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 06:33, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

pagefaults[edit]

PageFaults:585708

Have you tried checking your memory for errors? (that number seems awful) --Chieftain Alex 08:03, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I originally had four memory sticks. Then I discovered that slot #2 on the mobo is busted and won't hold a stick properly. Two of the four sticks were legit corrupted anyway though, so I've been running on the two remaining good ones. I put in a third stick recently, which doesn't actually help me since I'm on a 32 bit system, but eh.
Last time I had checked these sticks, they came out clean in memtest, but I know that most of the problems this computer has are related to memory and other faulty hardware. It would not surprise me if they've corrupted now. Actually, I just got a new and interesting "out of memory" serious GW2 error, so... Vili 点 User talk:Vili 11:59, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I had an awful memory problem as well. I suggest you running memtest a couple of times, it misleaded me telling ebeyrthing is fine at first, but after couple of other tries my PC was hanging while doing these tests. I finally replaced the faulty rams and sent the old to warranty, now everything is okay.

They're all old parts and I got them for free, so even if they were still under warranty it wouldn't be in my name. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 18:29, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Fortunately, memory is cheap. (Actually, there's cheaper than that, but those blue sticks you see in my case are Corsair and I don't trust the cheaper brands.) -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 06:39, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
