I recently finished building my new PC. I am having some troubles with crashing when opening games. It seems to be somewhat random. Some times I can play for hours straight, leave the pc on overnight, and play for hours the next day. Other times I can't get in game after many repeated attempts and reboots.
Here is what I have tried:
77.72 Drivers from nvidia
80.40 drivers from 3dguru.com (http://www.google.com/search?q=gefor...en-US:official
The card runs between 53 and 56 degrees according to the Nvidia sensors in the display settings.
All other drivers are up-to-date.
Here are the systems specs:
MSI Neo4 K8N Platinum
AMD 64 x2 4600+
WD Raptor 74 gb
eVGA geforce 7800 GTX
OCZ 520W PSU
Why I think it's the video card:
I had a friend who told me to check the event logger in Administrative Tools of windows. At the date of each crash I have this:
The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).
It has done it well over 30 times, so I'm not sure why it continues to say 1.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open for them, and I appreciate your time. Thank you, and if there's any other information I should provide, please let me know.
