When ever I play wow the x1800xl crashes. It is NOT a heat issue. ?I think it is a driver issue. I have tried different drivers with no success.
I am wondering if it is just a bad card or what. I ahve seen quite a few other people with the issue on diffrenet version cards 9x00, 1x00 version cards. Other people dont.
I have been thinking about an upgrade anyways so... although the x1900 or x1800 xt are nice but with the isues I ahve been having I ahve been thinking of swithcing over to Nvidia...... Or I could just upgrade my ram and proc but.... the crashing is annoying (luckily VPU recovery allows me to continue playing after minute or so)
What should I do? Format and reinstall and try latest drivers from scratch is not a great option as well... I dont know if I can find all of the CDs for my stuff.... I ahve the keys though :-p
Does the system only crash in WoW? Try putting your system under stress and see if it crashes in the same manner. Perhaps try watching a DVD and running several other tasks. Problem could very well be a failing video card. Try using a different card and playing WoW and see if your system crashes.
