Hi all,

I had skyrim for a while now, got through steam. Everything was going fine, but now it seams to keep crashes after a while into the blue screen of death, or freezes for a bit before resuming..10 mins later crashes.

I really dont get it, I usually get that the Display driver recovered from a serious error. I have on my 9262 sager a 9800m GTX with the sager supported driver 7.15.11.7609. I did download the newest drive, but it seems it dosnt recognize that I have a video card, usually get a message, no video card detected, so I kept this one and only driver that Sager put out.

Any advise or recommendations or people getting my same problem?

Thanks for the help

Download HWmonitor and check the temperatures after 10 mins of gaming. Report CPU and GPU temperatures!

I used Riva Tuner Hardware monitoring, and th GPU temp didnt get more than 73 c, and about 65s in average..... CPUs in low 60s, so I dont know why these crashes....

What cpu are you using? For most cpu's 60 is very high temp.

Check your ram sticks if any are bad , remove them and try them each separately one at a time and see if your system still crashes, you never know unless you try.

What are the rest of your system specifications, especially the mobo and PSU?

Try removing the disabled gpu, even if its not used if its bad it could throw up errors still.
Edit: My 6790 I have, used to have issues giving a random black screen occasionally, even if i don't use it in crossfire i could still have the problem pop up.
Post the PSU you are using as well, usually this wouldn't give a BSOD but if the cards aren't getting a stable voltage (too much variance in voltage is bad) they could be throwing errors due to this.

I couldn't find any substantial info on the sager 9262, but what I found said this was a laptop? Can you confirm this?

Edit: Nevermind. "9800m GTX". It's a laptop.

That changes things... I don't think you can remove the extra video card from a laptop (some mxm ones can be but i don't think this is one of mxm that can)

Apparently this is one that can exchange video cards. If removing the video card stops the issue you may be interested in doing a video card upgrade or buying a replacement 9800m to sli again.
