Hello! I'm new here and I'm not totally sure if there is a correct format to follow but here it goes. Basically whenever I play games like Fallout and Borderlands 2 the game crashes with an error message saying that my nvidia display driver has failed and recovered but it doesn't actually recover. I made a previous post about this on Reddit and they suggest I uninstall all my drivers then re-install. No luck. Then I validated all of my files. No luck. I know i have the recommended specs for these games so i don't know why it would be crashing, I ordered this PC off of dell about 6 months ago give or take. Here are my specs. THANKS!

I5-4440
8 Gigabytes of ram
GTX 760 Current Nvidia Driver 337.88
PSU?
HDD/SSD?

Run Checkdisk

Do a Virus scan.

Download HWInfo and run Sensors and post the results - usually 3 screenshots in TinyPic or similar

Ran the virus scan only a few corrupt .exe files that were for skype so nothing. Ran the check disk nothing. I do believe this Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s is my HDD and im still looking for my psu but i believe its somewhere around 900-1000. Where would I upload the screen shots of the sensor?

Dell -
Windows 7 Home Premium Intel
Core I5-4440 with 3.1 Ghz
8 Gigabytes of ram Nvidia
GeForce GTX 760 Current Nvidia Driver 337.88

CPU Vcore is OK But CPU is at 60C
GPU V is OK But GPU is at 56C
PSU Voltage are a bit out of spec

What ambient temp are you in?

Blow out your case - especially the fans, filters and coolers

Check all devices are working in Control Panel, Device Manager. Make sure all their drivers are up to date.

Post back new temps and whether the drivers still fail.

If so, try another graphics card and try the gtx760 in another pc.

I cleaned out the dust and my ambient temperature is around 20-25 Celsius. All of the devices are working and every single one has up to date drivers. The drivers still fail. Should I just call Dell at this point. I still have a warranty on it, so I'm not going to try the card in a different PC in case they consider that a violation of the warranty. One thing I noticed is I have 2 graphics cards one nvidia 1 intel.

If it's still on warranty then talk to Dell.

The next thing otherwise to try is to 're-seat' the cpu cooler - take if off, clean it up, put new thermal paste on it and put it back together again.
