loooooonnnngggggg paragraph did u check the heat of ur gfx card
sometimes this happens due to ram try a memtest86
March 21, 2010 5:53:07 PM

I'm not positive, but I think OCCT has GPU core and memory stability tests. You could try those as well to see if it is a stability issue. Maybe even try GPUTool's stability test. Watch your temps though.

temps are running at around 37 for my GPU but when playing games it runs at about 45!

Tried testing ram and it seems ok =/

This just confuses me lol
March 21, 2010 7:14:58 PM

45 is nothing to worry about. If I remember right the GTX 260 can get up to 125C before you have to start really worrying. My GTX 260 OCed gets up to about 68C when I am stressing it.
March 21, 2010 8:02:56 PM

well its not temp then lol

Any other ideas what the problem is then? I got the fan running at 100% as well!

Be nice to get this fixed lol also hope its not the monitor cause, can not afford another one atm :-P

So I guess that means you don't have another lying around to test it on?

Download OCCT and it has some GPU stress tests you can use.

I don't know how well they work, as I have never used them, but what the heck, it's worth a try.

Turns out they work really well. My OC of 746, 1200, 1530 was 2 hour GPUTool stable and it didn't even last 30 seconds on OCCT. I had to reduce it to 716, 1174, 1530 to get stable.

thanx, I will try that program when I get home and post the results here!
March 22, 2010 3:50:55 PM

just tried it and seems to be running fine lol

Im confused now :-S
March 22, 2010 3:55:17 PM

well if both tests passed then I dont think your video card is the problem. Does it do it in just that one game or does it do that in all of them?

EDIT: I just had a thought... Did it not do that during those tests? Because those tests should stress your card A LOT. I'm wondering if it is the game itself, maybe a corrupt file somewhere...
March 22, 2010 6:34:08 PM

no didnt do it durning the test at all!

Well it seems to happen when I play Lord of the rings online, World of warcraft or age of conan!

Happened once on Battlefield: Bad Company 2

UPDATE:

I still havent found the problem after I wiped my computer and formatted all my hard drives. This problem still happens for all my games!

Before this happens, the game will freeze and only problem out of this to CTRL+ALT+DEL and then click cancel. The screen will flash black and then there is a 50/50 chance of this happening!
