heres my issue
i constantly get the Error: Display Driver has stopped working and has recovered
Im playing a game such as GTA IV or Crysis oR ANYTHING and as im playing (FREQUENCY IS VERY RANDOM) the game freezes and it keeps playing 1/4 of a sound it was playing right at the moment before the freezing (like tatatatatatatataatatata), screen goes black and when i control alt delete out of it i see that message
sometimes the monitor stops detecting my computer and RIGHT after i get the blue screen of death
ive searched everywhere online for the solution...i turuned off UAC and problem got better but now its mUCH WORST
my system used to be overclocked to 3.8ghz and i thought that was the problem so i went back to the default settings and now the problem is worst than ever
my CPu runs at 60 degrees celcius when playing Crysis and my Gpu at like 65
i have the latest Nvidia Drivers (big bang II?) 180.48
please help me
PLEASE IVE SPENT OVER 1200 DOLLARS INTO THIS SYSTEM AND I CANT DO ANYTHING WITH IT BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM
When ever I've had a problem like you describe, sound looping, freezes. Happened when I went to far on my OC. It was always be a memory issue.
Might try loosening your times alittle or bump the voltage a notch.
The most likely cause of a video driver crash is a video card hardware issue. Did you buy the Geforce GTX 260 already overclocked to 700mhz or did you overclock it yourself? Does the system work properly if you run the video card at a lower speed?
