Driver has stopped responding. When I play games it randomly resets!
Ok, so this has gotten really annoying. I'll lay it down nice and neat.
New computer built in January. I5-2500k OCed to 4.2 Asus P8Z68 V-Pro motherboard G Skills 8gig RAM
-Asus Monitor that uses HDMI cord. -Had 2 6950's crossfire. Worked fine. -Sold them both. Ran the computer, hooked up to my tv for a bit, used the CPU graphics. -Whenever I played Crusader Kings 2 it would randomly black out, then return a couple seconds later. -I thought it would be fixed as soon as I got my new graphics card which I was waiting for. -Finally got the 680 4gb ftw (planning on getting 2 more monitors). -Whenever I play anything, it randomly says driver has stopped responding and has recovered. It will happen almost in fixed intervals. -In Skyrim (heavily modded) it will happen once every hour. -Playing Black Mesa Source, it happens every 15-10 minutes. -It does the same thing, blacks out, and comes back after 2-5 seconds, but now it also flickers. Checked GPU temperatures, everything is stable. Ran benchmarks on GPU like furmark, everything is stable. -Switched from 301.42 driver to the beta 306 one as well, and uninstalled old ATI drivers.
What should I do?

I don't think its a power issue. the two 6950's definitely consumed more power than the 680, but worked fine.
Bump! Still need help!
Don't pump posts^
Its in the forum rules.
Oh, do I just keep posting a new thread until someone helps me or should I just seek help elsewhere. (honest question)
Well, problems like this are usually really hard to solve. It happens for alot of reasons. Sometimes its a bad install of Windows, bad drivers, bad memory, bad registries.
Its a common problem with not alot of solutions except maybe re-installing Windows or running memtest.
Ok, whats the first step? I don't want to pay 75-100$ for a diagnosis
