X52 causing Blue Screens, using 50% CPU - is this normal?
I had BMS running ok for a little while, then suddenly I started getting blue screens in the middle of missions. After booting back up I found some information in the mini dump:
072714-23727-01.dmp 7/27/2014 9:09:00 PM SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED 0x1000007e ffffffff`c0000005 fffff880`05e70201 fffff880`02fd2988 fffff880`02fd21e0 SaiK075C.sys SaiK075C.sys+8961 Saitek Hid Driver Configuration Software Saitek 18.104.22.168 x64 SaiK075C.sys+22201 C:\Windows\Minidump\072714-23727-01.dmp 2 15 7601 332,072 7/27/2014 9:11:12 PM
I also noticed things getting really sluggish while playing and after exiting BMS saw my CPU was at 50% with nothing else running, most of it being used by a process called system. Reboot, 0%. Start the profile tool, still at 0%. Load the Profile, it shoots up to 50%. Unload it, right back to 0%.
For what it’s worth I am using Hard Decks X52 profile here https://www.benchmarksims.org/forum/showthread.php?7909-Saitek-X-52-Profile
EDIT: I am trying other profiles, they do not seem to cause this CPU spike…
