View Full Version : The Steam Update has broken MW3 Multi and Singleplayer (4/19/12)

I need some help and confirmation.
Yesterday, (today being the 20th of April), Steam had a client update.
This update added a comment notifier and changed a few things.
Today, I start up the Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer and it crashes my computer, giving me a blue screen error. I tried again, and it made the computer restart.
I have no clue what the problem is. Was this the Steam update? My computer was able to run MW3 completely fine before this update; I played nearly about 75 hours singleplayer and multiplayer!
This is really annoying me, anyone have a solution? Can anyone confirm that it was the update?

This is very urgent, PLEASE PEOPLE, respond

Do you remember what the error code was? error 0x0000016?
It's probably a graphics card problem. I can't find any players that have experience something similar the past 24 hours/week.
Check if you have the latest drivers for your Graphics card.
maybe clean install you drivers.
Can you post more info about your computer?
You might find you BSOD log here : c:/windows/minidump

Are those dmp files?

Those are the dmp files. I updated the graphics card and I still have the restart problem

right click on them and you should get a "open crash dumbs" or just hit Ctrl + d
post the result here.
Also do you know how to update your BIOS? Many people reported that fix'ed your problem.

God, you're very helpful!!! Find me on Steam later.
How do I update the BIOS?
Also, it won't open. Control+D prompts me to delete them

should I open them with a program like Notepad?

My BIOS version/date says this: AMI Ang_711, 11/1/2011
My SMBIOS Version says: 2.7
