Hey everyone, this problem has been happening for a couple months now but its been barable until now.
My GTX 285 crashes EVERY single time i play Starcraft 2 online. It can happen as soon as 10 seconds in, to about 20 minutes into the game... This problem happened in COD4, MW2, and BFBC2 once and a while, not every time but still happened.
The screens (2 monitors) will all the sudden turn random colours. The sound of the game is still playing, and it only loops sometimes. A reset wont even fix it, the only way to revive my computer is to manually hold the power button down and turn it back on..
Ive updated all of my drivers,used DiverSweep, deleted all of my drivers, and reinstalled them all again.. didnt work.
The temps while im playing are dont get higher then 65'C..
Any ideas? I Bought this PC from CyberPowerPC almost a year ago now and im not sure if this is covered by the warranty.
I didnt game on it much when i bought it in Oct 2009. But the first time i gamed it had these problems yes. It didnt get to the point of crashing every game until i started playing SC2. For example it has NEVER done this in Supreme Commander 2 and ive spent hours on that game.
Hey everyone! After reading some other forums with people having the same problem as I am it seems the quick fix was to just tune down the Core Clock and the Memory Clock.. this has made my card very stable and it hasnt crashed once in the past week.. Ive noticed a huge lack in the performance but at least it doesnt crash...
