Hello all , does anyone know how to fix the livekernelevent error video crash ? Sometimes I can game for a week and sometimes it crashes within 10 seconds. My card has never gone above 58c as my case has good cooling. I have tested all the hardware and had no failures. This problem seems to happen more in Bad Company 2. The funny thing is that it happened on my old 780i C2D E8400 just as frequently. I even purchased a new PSU when i went to I5. Same damn problem......... My screen displays some random color and I am forced to do a hard reboot. I called EVGA and they really don't have any other suggestions besides RMA'ing. The support rep was doubtful that it was the video card because of how sporadic the problem is.
From what I can tell by reading a lot is that this seems to be a driver related issue. I have tried them all. Some seem to work better than others but nothing will fix this problem. I have tried down clocking , driver sweep/reinstall , and even reformatting.
Nothing is or has been overclocked.
This is really pissing me off.........................................
Sounds like you have tried everything. You tested all hardware, temps are within spec, tried different drivers, the card did the same thing with different hardware, you reformatted. I would RMA the thing.
@ Notty Yes I have. I did a full driver sweep and even went through my registry to make sure it was clean. The game is on it's 3rd day but non of the other members in my gaming community are having this problem.
What's odd is that last night I played the single player on high for about an hour with no problems. Figuring I fixed the problem I jumped into the multiplayer only to have it crash within 10 minutes. Anyone know what's up with that ?
Anyway . I just went to Fry's and picked up a BFG GTX260 MC55 to test out. If it works I will RMA the card.
If you can repeat problems in another game, besides this one, then it might be the card(gpu). If not, then its the game/driver unique to your hardware config. When I played the demo, right off the bat, I had mouse lose focus immediately, and just look straight up, forever. i googled that and sure enough others had the same thing. Never tried the demo again.
So I picked up a BFG 260 core 55 and no more crashing. I currently have a RMA in progress. Thanks to all that assisted. Will advise when I get the new card tuesday. I hope it's not bad. I have read stories about people that have gone through 4 or 5 RMA's on this 2GB card before getting one that functions properly.
