Hey,guys!
I've got a new system:
i7 2600k
8GB RIPJAWS RAM
1TB Seagate Barracuda
nVidia Zotac GTX 560Ti 1GB

Just installed Modern Warfare 2.Played 2 missions so far and have got this problem 2 times:
It randomly hard-crashes/freezes,the screen goes black and then my CPU makes a loud trrr.... noise.It isn't auto-rebootable at that moment.Keyboard becomes non-functional,too. :cry: 
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

You'll need to do some detective work.

Have you checked Windows' system error events to determine what the cause is?

Which NVIDIA GeForce driver version are you using?

What is the make and model of your power supply unit?

Is the graphics card being overclocked and by how much?

Do you have the latest game updates/patches applied?

Q. Have you checked Windows' system error events to determine what the cause is?
A. After the manual reboot windows say that it has recovered from an unexpected error.Obviously,I'm not gonna try & do that again to ruin my brand new system.

Q. Which NVIDIA GeForce driver version are you using?
A. 266.44

Q. What is the make and model of your power supply unit?
A. Corsair TX750W

Q. Is the graphics card being overclocked and by how much?
A. No.I guess its factory OCed.

Q. Do you have the latest game updates/patches applied?
A. No.Which one should I use?

One more thing- After the reboot,MW2 launcher says that I should run it in safemode to avoid problems,and it lowers the graphics of the game.But the game is running fine.What should I do to make it run in safemode every time?
BTW,I'm confident that all my hardware requirements are more than enough to play this game.So,it shouldn't be a problem.Prime suspect is the game itself..

The System Events log is a running history of system events. Scroll back in the log looking for Error events and determine what caused them. If the log is of a long enough duration you don't need to recreate the error you just need to search back to when it last happened.

Your GeForce driver version isn't recent. It's at least four releases behind. The latest version is 280.26 and is available from NVIDIA's web site. Get it and install it to see if it gets you more stability.

Ok,I'll try and report back in some time.However,the safe mode settings are compelling me to play in 640*480 res.Man! Really sucks!

EDIT: Ok it again crashes at 12:28. Application log :-
(It is in a reversed manner.I guess problem started at 12:28:16,so I recommend skipping to that moment in the log.)

You posted the Application Log. Not the one I would bother looking in.

Look in the System Log. The Error events are clearly indicated in red. Those are the events that should be investigated as to their cause and then resolved. When the system is working properly their should be no system Error events in that log.

Looking at the error:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000116 ( ...

The bugcheck code of 0x00000116 would lead me to suspect that it is being caused by the graphics card driver you are currently using.

Download and install the latest graphics card driver for your Operating System from NVIDIA's Driver Download site:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Also make sure you have installed the latest Intel chipset driver for your motherboard.

I've googled and found that I'm not the only one with this problem.Hundreds of others have experienced the same.I've read through several pages of these forums and found that at last (after very very lengthy discussions),people couldn't find a solution which could guarantee of being the perfect universal solution for this.As a result,the threads got locked in time.Sometimes,some guys come with one or two solutions,which they find,are working for them,but others try and report it as a fail.
Thats why I started just another thread on this here.I thought maybe Tomshardware members could be any help...;)
What I've observed so far is : Start the singleplayer,and alt-tab outta game.Then open taskmgr and end it.Next time you'll launch the game,you'll be asked to run in safemode.Click yes and you're done.It works! Yeah,safe mode compels us to play in 640x480,but at least I can play this beautiful game.Playable fps.

Ok,I've found the solution so that its no trouble anymore.I've tried a different crack (which was,originally, meant for this one) and the problem was solved.
So... where is that damn button to choose this answer as "best answer"? :p

I found the same issue on NVIDIA forums.Two others like me purchased the same card from the same shop and experienced the same problem.Later,they swapped it with Asus GTX560Ti and the problem was solved! Its a pity that when I called the shopowners,they refused to take the card back.I'm currently trying to download 275.33 to see if any improvements are observed.
*UPDATE*
275.33 is corrupted itself LOL! Downloaded the fuc*ing 135MB file 2 times,never worked!
