    hi,

    iam running Windows XP service pack 3.
    whenever i start a game after it has started and is at the startup screen or just befor ethe startup screen, my pc shutsdown instantly.
    ive tried three games: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. SoC, Zombie Shooter 2 and Minecraft.
    with Stalker it crashed even before i could see any menu, with zombie shooter it crashed after loading about 2 minutes but before the screen changed from the loading screen, with Minecraft it crashed at the start of the Majong Specification screen.

    when the computer then starts 2 out of 4 times it made a hard drive check (not the one windows is installed on)
    when i then log on it wants to report an error, once i reported it it takes me to this page:
    Microsoft Windows Error Reporting
    it cant have anything to do with an outdated driver because its very recent, and ive had no updates or game changes or anything like that.
    all other programms work fine.

    well i cant think of any more relevant information,
    so i hope someone can help me.

    There are two problems here



    1-sptd.sys used in daemon tools and alcohol120. It needs to be removed.

    Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

    You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

    Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) Overview


    2-Soundtap. It needs to be re-installed.


    Let us know if you need help with this
