When i play CoD 5, W.a.W. it either stops responding when im playing like normal, or goes to a 'driver_irql_not_less_or_equal' BSOD in safe mode. Should i reinstall drivers or what? It was working last night perfectly for like 6 straight hours, now it can't last half. I have a GTX460, Gigabyte 880GM-UD2H, Phenom 2 955be, 4Gb corsair ram
Try swapping out your RAM sticks if you can find some extras. That BSOD is often associated with faulty RAM, overheating, or bad drivers. You might want to make sure all your device drivers are up to date.
Im almost certain all the drivers are up to date so it is probably overheating arn't the copper heat pipes on the heat-sink ment to get hot? i can put my finger on them for ages without it hurting.. my gpu on the other hand has silver pipes and they get very hot.
