  1. Can u reinstall the video driver for different version?
  2. Are you playing from the hard drive or the DVD drive? Are you using an HDMI or DVI cable?
  3. Your ram and processor seems to be fine... I don't see the problem.

    You are an excellent troubleshooter my friend. :bounce:

    Make sure you have the latest graphics drivers and run memtest86 on your memory to check for errors.

    i am downloading the driver from the sapphire website now to see if that could make a difference, but the other one i downloaded was from the amd site

    just finished installing the new drivers so i will have to wait until 2moro morning to see if it has crashed or not
  9. I'm am going to leave my computer on and see what happens, i'm going to put a film on nd try it out see what happens
  10. Still having the same problem after installing the video drivers, so what could it be
  11. Try different version of the driver.

    what do u mean different, i have been to the amd website and the sapphire website they give the same thing
  13. Lets say u have 12.1 version, install 11.x
  14. ok so the older version, ok i will try that nd see what happens
  15. so since i have updated the graphics driver still same problem so i will try downgrading the graphics driver
  16. Have you found any solution yet ?

    what is happening to your pc mine was that after a couple of hours it would go to blue screen nd if there was like music playing when it happened it would make like crazy repetitive virbrate noise
  20. When you render, don't have Skype or Media player in the background, better to keep all your resources for the render as it does rely on much of the cpu.
