Ok this problem is seriously annoying me to death. I can play for about 5 mins and then my game freezes for about 5 seconds. My entire screen goes black, then it comes back on and a little message balloon in the corner says my video drivers have crashed and have successfully recovered. I have tried multiple things:

-upgrading to java 7

-downgrading to java 6.30

-downloading a new minecraft exe

-downgrading my minecraft version from 1.1 to 1.0

-downgrading minecraft from 1.1 to 1.8.1

-updating to the latest amd drivers

-downgrading to older amd drivers

-using modded amd drivers

-running minecraft in compatibilty mode for XPsp2, XPsp3, vista, vista sp1, vista sp2, and windows 7. all produce the same crash result, except for the vista ones. Those dont even let me run minecraft at all, they just produce an error report from java.

My video card is an ATI Radeon HD 5770, and minecraft is the only game that has this problem.

I would serisouly love to get minecraft running again, and start making videos of it again. If you can think of any other solution i would greatly appreciate it.

Does it pick it up and try to install drivers? If it doesn't then it'll be your USB's I guess.

it picks it up, it installs the drivers. I go to the manufactuers website and even install there drivers. it doesnt make a difference what i do no device that can transmit a video signal to a computer works at all

Does it appear under devices and printers?

Maybe Windows 7 installs some dodgy drivers.

Try uninstalling the drivers in device manager ( under imaging devices > right click camera > properties > driver > uninstall ) . Then try installing the drivers from the manufacturers site.

obenns
tried all that already

i have tried 2 different webcams. One that i know for a fact works. and a new ojne that i just got. I also just got a hd pvr. My computer does not pick them up at all. no matter what program i use. it doesnt pick them up. Do you have any idea as to why this is like this. i have a msi 870s-g54 motherboard if that makes any difference. and im pretty sure all usb drivers are up to date. and its only camera devices, everything else that works on usb is fine.

[QUOTE="evilmaster2424"]Ok so i went ahead and installed windows XP onto my secondary drive, i only used xp because the windows 7 disc i have is an upgrade disc. So that went fine, then it went nd rebooted itself. But now its just stuck in a never ending loop of rebooting. It doesnt even go to the Windows loading screen anymore. So im thinking at this point somehting on the motherboard fried when the old PSU went. its not the hard drives i plugged them into a different computer and they worked fine. The RAM appears to be fine. The only other things in there that could be the problem are the mopther board, GPU (which i said earlier) or the CPU. in the end im probably going to just build an entire new system. Unless someone has something else i can try?neatfeatguy

Did you remove the main HDD after you installed XP on the secondary? If not, then did you change the boot device list in your BIOS? If not, then you're computer is trying to still boot on the main HDD.

That's the only thing I can think of there.

When the PSU went on my younger brother's PC it took out the MB, RAM and HDD....probably the CPU as well, but I never got around to testing it - no AM2 to test it on. I salvaged his GPU and DVD burner, they worked fine. It could be possible something else went with the PSU. Hopefully you can figure it out, best of luck.

yeah i changed the boot sequence and all that other stuff. The computer is just ****ed basicaly. so yeah ill be out getting new parts soon. i swear if this happens again im giving up pc gaming, getting a crappy laptop, and relying solely on my ps3 for games

But I thought you couldn't use the CD/DVD-ROM drive either?tjoeb123
no it worked, just it didnt want to boot the disc after it loaded.

[QUOTE="CUDGEdave"]

When the PSU blew it MAY have damaged the mobo or HDD,Have you looked at the mobo for any blown capatitors or anything odd looking on the board.

neatfeatguy

Yeah, sounds like the HDD was damaged. The computer is having problems accessing the boot sector. You can try to do a new install on a partition to see if that resolves your problem.

In your situation though, I'd rather pick up a new HDD and install Windows on it and then have your old HDD as a secondary drive to just recover your data from. Once you do that, try and do a reformat on the old HDD and use as a backup if possible.

On a side note, CUDGEdave: the word morgage is spelled wrong in your sig, it should be "mortgage".

that 1.5tb is a secondary i used only for games and any videos that i recorded, so should i try and install windows onto that and then backup the data from the other one and format it?

on Friday night my power supply crashed and it turns out that it died. thats fine i bought a new one and the computer can go on now. Except windows is all messed up. when it boots up it brings you to a screen that says either launch startup repair or start windows normaly. Starting windows brings it to a black screen that only says "Starting Windows" the logo never comes up and it only stays on that screen for about 2 seconds before rebooting itself. if you do startup repair it gives you the instructions on how to repair the computer then under that it says

Status: 0xc000000f

info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

putting in the disc doesnt do anything, when you reboot it just brings you back to that screen.

I have also tried booting into all available safe modes, each one hangs when it starts loading AtiPcie.sys and tehn most of the time just reboots after that, or sometimes will go to starting windows and then reboot. i have tried booting into all other options in the advanced boot menu. I have also tried booting into my windows 7 disc, but as soon as it loads the windows files the second time it goes the starting windows and reboots itself. So i cant get into the disc to do a repair or system restore. i have tried using ultimate boot cd, but that doesnt work either. .

the only thing i can think of at this point that could be causing this is my GPU or motherboard itself, but since i dont have on board graphics and i dont have a spare graphics card or spare mobo for that matter i cant test either of those. by the way this is also a custom built PC so i cant really call a manufacturer.

the power supply i have now is a corsair gs700, my old one was OCZ Mod xstream-pro 700w. both are 700w.
i have a msi 870a-g54 motherboard
ATI Radeon 5770 GPU
1.5 TB hitachi intternal HDD
500GB Samsun Internal HDD(this one has windows on it)
AMD Phenom II x4 CPU (or something like that, i dont remember the exact name of it i just know its AMD and has 4 cores)
and a ASUS DVD/CD drive
