Hello,

I purchase a new computer ~2 months ago, and all of a sudden I'm getting Video Hardware Errors when I play Starcraft 2. Sometimes it's fine, I can play without any issues, then suddenly the screen goes black or the game gets really choppy and I get a "Video Hardware Error".

My system specs

Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D-E SOCKET LGA 1156
Details: http://www.cbit.ca/product.php?productid=14425

Video card: GEFORCE GTX 460 SUPER CLOCKED 1GB GDDR5
Details: http://www.cbit.ca/product.php?productid=14651

Power Supply: TR2 RX-850 BLACK WIDOW 850W POWER SUPPLY
Details: http://www.cbit.ca/product.php?productid=13399

Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit.

Let me know if you require any more information.

I went into the Reliability History and there are Critical Errors all over the place (each occurance), below are the reports.

There are three files: WD-20110210-2004.dmp, sysdata.xml, WERInternalMetadata.xml. If you require these in order to help solve the problem, let me know and I can upload them. Also, if you require any more information, just let me know and I'll post it.

I really appreciate any help anyone can provide to solve this annoyance.

Hello and welcome to the forums
Do you have the latest VGA drivers installed ?
Also,have you tested other games too ? If so,then do you get this error in them as well ?
