bsod while running/playing PCSX2
#1
So, I've got a good machine if I say so myself. Not top notch, but it's cool.
Never in my life experienced a bsod with this system and I'm a heavy gamer.

Don't think overheating is the problem, cause it never goes beyond the 30ºC

I downloaded pcsx2 so I could play some old games I can't find anywhere and I get bsod.

More specifically, while playing Shadow Hearts.
Also it isn't instant. I can play for hours on end...(yesterday were like 4 ou 5 hours) and today were also 3 hours playing without problems. But then all of a sudden...BSOD

The dmp file is available if anyone can read it.

I'd appreciate a little help.

Just a note, PCSX2 cannot cause BSOD's, it does not access a low enough level to do such things, however it can show system instability in other areas.

From inspection of the dump, the cause of the BSOD is ataport.sys, which could mean one of a few things.

1. If you have AVG installed, please try uninstalling it and see if that helps, some people have reported this causing that exact error.

2. Your hard disk has a fault which may or may not be corrected by running a command prompt and doing "chkdsk c: /f" (you will need to reboot after choosing Y from the option given), if that doesn't fix it, it is possible your hard disk is faulty and needs replacing.

3. You have a rootkit causing issues, this could either be a virtual driver like SPTD (usually comes with cd burning programs or daemon tools) or a virus. To check it isn't the latter, i recommend googling and running "TDSSKiller" from Kaspersky followed by "Malwarebytes". Both tools are free.

Hope that helps.

A side-note question. I store all my games in an external hdd via usb. Im running the game from it. Could this be it? I'm sure the hdd has error because the windows is always saying so when I plug it in.
Just remembered this now. I'll put it in one of my internal ones and try again.

I ran the TDSSKiller and malware bytes and it found nothing.

Also, uninstalled comodo.

Look at the Windows System Log, accessible from Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer. From this last window look it at Logs.

You'll need to provide Administrative password to view the log if UAC is set on.

PS: Filter the log (you can do it at the right side) so to show only error and Critical.

Take not of the Event ID to those red messages. You can find the meaning of the IDs on the Internet, bring them here if having difficulty to understand what they mean.
