I have recently put together my new system build with components advised by all you helpful people!
I am really leased with the result but I am getting system crashes at two random points!
1. When i run collin mcrae DIRT2 it sometimes crashes after the AMD logo or during the car video sequnce but not all the time. I have done lots of digging around and seems im not the only one with this problem. Ive followed many answers but still crashes my computer.
2. the second time it crashes is sometimes when i maximise a youtube video.
Ill post my system spec below. When i say crash its not a straight forward dump out it just goes very very slow (i.e. 1 frame every 10 seconds) and flicks on and off of a black screen. All i can do is switch the comp off. Both issues above lead to the same crash.
I have downloaded all drivers as to me it seemed like a GPU problem but ive been running cod4:mw2, crysis, batman etc etc all fine! Its just collin macrae dirt2 and these youtube window maximises!
Ive checked temps and they are all fine!
I have overclocked the cpu following many guides and upped the graphics card through the catalyst menu (from 755mhz to 775mhz) and again all temps are very good!
