Drivers crashed....why? Tags: Radeon Games Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: November 21, 2012 9:25 PM in Graphics & Displays Share robinsblade November 20, 2012 11:18:51 PM ok to start off i got amd radeon 6770 graphics card. when i was playing blacklight retribution the game crashed for the 2nd time(not normal) so i decided to test if the game was fully crashed because task manager did not say the normal (not responding) description. after about 1-3 minutes of messing around trying to minimize and maximize it the game fully CTDs and then it notifies me that the graphics drivers have crashed/stop working. so first thing i think is ive been playing to long so i check the temp of both the cpu and gpu and both were at 44 C which is normal this computer runs at. then after checking both the desktop starts to spaz out flickering and having black lines.....is this bc the card is going out? its only .75 of a year old. one contributing factor is it has only happened to that game so far and that i changed settings in the game.....more details on this >> i changed the fps limit to uncapped and i was running an easy 55 - 60 fps i think i also enable multi-sampling or antiscopic(i forgot which and if i spelt them right ) but my main question is what caused this? does uncapped FPS cause this? does over heating cause this? or does the card going bad cause this? also what is the average temp for this graphics card? i seem to run without lag up to 50 C and after that i have to shut down for a while bc i top out at 20 fps (this has only happened once or twice earlier this summer) More about : drivers crashed omnisome a b U Graphics card November 21, 2012 12:35:01 AM First, try uninstalling all of your graphics drivers, using a driver sweeper too, and reinstall them. m 0 l robinsblade November 21, 2012 12:46:59 AM i know its not a install problem ......it has to do something with the settings that the game was playing at.....(also can u answer me what is the average temp for the cpu and gpu?(fx4100)) m 0 l Related resources Where can I find intel dh61ww drivers for Windows 8.1 64 bit - Forum Question about drivers. - Forum Can't download drivers - Forum Will windows 7 ,MB drivers and GPU drivers fit on a 64GB SSD? - Forum Installed AMD drivers,software rendering?Please reply - Forum Can't find your answer ?
