Hi everyone!
I have had this pc for almost 3 years and I have been having a serious problem with it. It crashes saying "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed" It also makes my pc freeze and generally be really slow. I have tried flashing the bios, reinstalling windows, Trying to reinstall graphics drivers but it fails most of the time. I am sick of this and would like your help.

My system specs are:
Intel Core i7 920
6GB Cosair PC3-10700H 2131.7 mhz
2 AMD Radeon HD 5870
Gigabyte EX58-UD3R
Windows Vista Home Premium x64

Does it crash during specific actions such as game playing, CPU stressing, etc? Have you checked the CPU, GPU and motherboard temperature? Also I'd recommend to install a hard drive health-checking software to see if there is any problem with it (I use CrystalDiskInfo).

Thanks for the quick reply
It does crash while gaming and cpu stressing, but it can,rarely, crash anytime, and I will check the hard drive. I have not checked the temperatures

Update:I installed crystaldiskinfo and It says caution on "Current Pending Sector Count"

Check the temperature of your CPU, motherboard and graphic card. That's very important.

Motherboard is 33 Degrees Celsius
CPU core 1 is 40 Degrees Celsius
CPU core 2 is 37 Degrees Celsius
CPU core 3 is 38 Degrees Celsius
CPU core 4 is 36 Degrees Celsius
Graphics cards are both 41 Degrees Celsius

Get CPUID software to check CPU temp from here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/238190/hwmonitor_basic.h...

And this is the link for GPU temp:

You should check temperature when you're stressing the PC, for example while playing etc.
