On the beginning, sorry for my english mistakes. So, my problem looks like this. Some games : Bioshock 2, Just Cause 2, Assasins Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs, Saints Row the Third, Viva Pinata are crashing to desktop. The same way. After one minute of playing, hour, on cinematics or loading screen.
They minimize to desktop, without any mistake meassage, I can't turn them back, only task manager helps to shoot them off. Sometimes it's crash with information that screen driver kernel model bla bla stop workind but now is good. But very rare. I realizes that when the game crash, temperature on my graphics card rises for couple of second for about 10 degrees. Always the same. Other games working perfectly.
I don't know what to do, i try running them by administrator, compability modes, fresh windows system, nothing. Please Help!!
My computer: Intel Core i5 2500K- 3,3 Ghz, As Rock P67 Pro 3, Asus Geforce GTX 570 1280 MB DDR5 DirectCu II, 500 GB Samsung F3 , 2 x 4 GB GoodRam DDR3 1333 Mhz, XFX Core 550W.
I dont think that my card i over heating because the temp is max 50 C . The drivers are 306. 23. so up to date. Withcer 2, Prototype 2 , Batman Arkham City on full details run perfectly for me, the crashing games too when they are working. No glitches, no artifact nothing. Runs perfectly on high or very high, but minimizes suddenly and gone. Its so weird.
I used it, installed newest drivers, game freezes after 5 second. So I used driver sweeper to uninstall drivers and second time installed oldest. Working fine to this time, about 1,5 hour. I have more time on Sunday for testing.
Played tonight Far Cry 3 for 1,5 hour, crash, but I have Bit Spirit in the background. Switch it off. I palyed 3 hours non stop without crash. I am satysfied witch this result, but I still don't know the reason of crashing. Any ideas for future?
Sooo, as Far Cry 3 was working good with old drivers, Assasins Creed 3 and Deus Ex HR still crash that same way. Minimizes to desktop and thats all. I have no idea what to do with this problem. Please Help!
I downloaded process monitor to see wich process occurs after the game minimizes. I played Deus Ex HR, it minimizes to desktop, and in PM I see that adiodog.exe process occurs. What is this? I read about some fix from microsoft to this but I can't download it. Any ideas?
The PC is 1,5 year old. From the beginning it was ok, games was working perfectly. The first game to react that way was Bioshock 2. Then I think Saints Row The Third, Max Payne 3 etc. This problem occurs only in some games, other work good, like Dark Souls, Football Manager 2013, Darksiders 2, Prototype 2 etc.
In the crash message I have code c0000005, and StackHash_0a9e. I found that this may be possible problem with virtual memory. I have 8174 MB in settings, and it's controlled by Windows. I have 8 GB of Ram. Is this change anything?
Now in Mirrors Edge I have too appcrash but with nvd3dum.dll message. It's something with the graphics driver? Sorry for posting one message after another, but this is killing mr, so many problems with one computer.
Anyway, at this point I'd suggest windows reinstall. Either your Nvidia drivers are corrupted, or your card got damaged. If it's the former, windows reinstall will most definitely fix it. If it's the latter, you'll have to contact Asus warranty service.
