BSOD Ati3duag.dll but wierd story behind it?

October 21, 2010 at 21:42:39
Specs: Windows XP, 3Ghz Dual core/3.25Gig RAM
1) So the first problem started when my nvidia video card gave out. My screen colors were off and a had a lot of dotted lines running across the screen. It ended up in a blue screen but then I went through safe mode to uninstall the drivers and started up normally. Everything else worked, clearly my video card gave out. (Blue screen error was nv4disp.dll)

2) I bought a new video card, ATI Radeon HD 5750... beautiful thing for the couple minutes i do get it work. I Installed all the new drivers. My processor was over heating before but I got a new cooling unit and it does not having heat issues at all. Problem is, when I run Starcraft 2, a minute, or even seconds in the game crashes. Either freezes or I get BSOD with atiduag.dll error.

3) My system exceeds recommended requirements for the game. I was playing the game fine before my Nvidia card game out. I just watched a movie, but I was watching some short film and I got blue screen. I am f---ing clueless and pissed. The only thing I can think of left for me to do is a clean re-install/format my windows...

O I also added another gig of ram... but that shouldnt cause any problems... right?
Ive tried even using driver genius to see if I missed an update... it got those but still same problem

XP Pro SP3
AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual
Core Processor 6000+
2.99Ghz, 3.25GB RAM

Before you format/reinstall, try all of these cleaners, I think you have leftovers causing the problem.

I tried those cleaners - they fixed a lot of my registry which helped.
But starcraft 2 crashes now in a freeze, not a blue screen. Most of the time it just freezes, except the last time i tried it froze and restarted itself.

Did you run Vit more than once, you may have to run 4 or 5 times, as per 5:

Thank you for the help and all the websites, il use them in the future. I did a clean format, I figured it was that time of the year.
After frustrating some more, the problem was a faulty RAM stick. Start up was fine, installing small programs/drivers was no problem but trying to install SC2 a few times and crashing before install completed made me think of the memory. Anyway, its uncommon but it happen to me. New kingston RAM is sometimes faulty too.

Thought you must be going down the format path, good that you found the problem.
