I built this computer not so long ago, I can easily play any DX11 titles maxed out. (WoW and Dirt 3 are the one I've tested) When it come to older titles like GTA IV and stuff that I believe run on DX9, my monitor randomly lose signal and it is very frustrating as I can't find a way to fix this ^^
Games that have crashed up to now on this PC are GTA IV and Dragon's Nest. I also bought GTA Episod from Liberty City but havnt instaled it yet as it's probably runing on the same engine as GTA IV. On the other hand, CS 1.6 works flawlessly but I don't think it run's on directx ^^
When it loses signal, the only thing I can tell you is that the sound keep going for like 10 seconds then it stops but the PC doesn't shut down, fans and HD are still moving.
Yes I have to hard-shutdown for it to get the image back and yes I did the driversweep thing under safe mode.
I found out that by lowering the shadow setting from very high to high, it wouldnt crash. I gues thats one way to fix the problem but it still bothers me... How come an old game crash my PC when BF3 and Dirt3 dont...
Ill do the hwmonitor tomorow as it's runing late ! Thanks for the help.
