Hey guys. Lately I have had a lot of problems with my brand new PC. It seems that a hardware is failing and I cannot seem to determine which one is the faulty one.

Thank you Naralin for taking your time to help me find a solution, but I still don't know what's wrong with it.

I've tried to play GTA but it seems that I broked my game. Because of so many BSOD's the game integrity was violated so now I have to download the game again. Which I did. But because more BSOD happened during the download, now I'm stuck in a download loop. It goes to 100% (64GB of data) then it's verifying it's integrity and then it starts downloading from the beginning again.

Because of that I finished my data cap on my phone so I can't download the game anymore.

Probably I will miss a few weeks while I will be sending each hardware one by one to the repair shop until I will find out which one is faulty.

Thanks for all the great time we had together but unfortunately I won't be online for the next few weeks.

But I'll be back :)

What kind of BSOD are you getting? Is it MEM_TEST?

This really sounds like a RAM Memory failure. And you don't really have to download the entire game all over again. Steam verification of cache is usually enough. But my bet is on bad RAM sticks.

Good luck & Hope to see you soon!

I had the same issue with a patch a while ago, I ended up having to delete the reg. entries and doing the install again.

I made a copy of the complete game somewhere else, then I deleted the game and uninstalled it completely. I then had the game start the install, but stop it when it reached the "downloading" stage. I then copied the backup of the game I made back and had the game carry on with the install.

Worked like a charm, and it downloaded something like 30mb

I used to have to do this a lot in my pirating days too.

BTW just switch out your RAM sticks one by one. You'll probably find it's just one bad one, not all of them. The bad one will be the one that BSOD's within 5 minutes (opening the right-click menu in Windows Explorer is a good test). Send that one back; had this exact problem.

Also, if you're comfortable, check your North Bridge settings in BIOS to make they're all set to default settings.

Hey Vic, I had 2 Ram sticks that ran in dual channel. If one is broken I have to send both of them back to the store because they came together in the same pack. Which I did. Now I'm waiting for the guys to send new sticks to me. It might take up to 10 working days..

Oh fuck me that's EXACTLY what happened to me. I ended up surviving on 1 ram stick for a month until I bought new ones and after a year, I'm STILL fighting for an RMA from Corsair.

It sucks that they won't take just the bad one back. Did you try switching them to see if it was the ram after all?
