Everytime i play a game or 3d application, my computer suddenly locks up/freezes/crashes. . The audio/sound loops over and over fast. There's nothing i can do including ALT CRT DEL, or switch to desktop or QUIT. The computer totally freezes.
Just built myself a system as described above. No overclocking, latests drivers. Cataysty 9.12
Windows7 runs smooth with almost no crashes (one or two in 3 weeks).
However, multiple crashes in games, after 1-4 hrs (Crysis Warhead , Bioshock , Dirt 2).
System freezes, impossible to CTRLALTDEL or anything.
Now it has become frustrating more with me playing Warhead and it happening every 5 - 30mins.
When I'm in OS it happens rarely, but it happens
My earlier card was Gtx 280 so i was thinking that maybe wrong card. But yesterday i plug my new Ati 5850 and problem again . Fu**** freezing;////////
Did you do a clean uninstall? if not,then do this:
1_Download and install Driver sweeper ( http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/ )
2_Go to add/remove programs and uninstall your VGA driver,then restart and boot to safe mode
3_Open driver sweeper and click on ATI and then click on "Clean",restart and boot normally to windows
4_Install the driver(Cat 9.12) and restart
Check if it helps or not
