MSI 6970 lighting... BLACK screen 5 minutes into CRYSIS 2

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Just got my brand new msi 6970 Lightning... 11.4 drivers no errors during installation.. AMAZING temperatures and amazing performance...

BLACK SCREEN about 5-10 minutes into CRYSIS 2 with sound in the background than nothing.. Have to restart computer..

EDIT: so far its only CRYSIS 2 that'll crash it.. I play sc2 for one online match (20 minutes) and no black screen... Im trying metro 2033 now.. ANY ideas on why CRYSIS 2 would result in a black screen after flawless play for 5-6 minutes?!

Has this happened more than once?

Try reinstalling the game if it happens again.

*this happens with my GPU at stock using Q features, and with OC prior to OCP mods. I no longer have the issue any more.
Im sorry i am lost in what you are talking about... When i play crysis 2 multiplayer.. 5 minutes into online match itll just go black... i can hear sound but than 30 seconds later no sound just all black screen and its like that.. I have to restart my computer (because of black screen) to get it back to my desktop...


Metro 2033, SC2, Benchmarks they all run flawlessly and my temps never get past 58c... Im very happy with it as my favorite game crysis 2 cant be played so far

if you dont have any issues gaming for extended periods of time with other games and similar quality features enabled..then its probably not anything hardware related ...but driver related.

*Have you tried a different driver version, with the same CCC your using now?

I haven't used any other driver no.. I am currently rocking the 11.4 driver.. Keep in mind all of this is happening at stock values for my lightning. THIS card is FABULOUS if I could just get this fixed.. Im not kidding when my highest temps reach 58c its awesomeee and TOTAL SILENCE im so estatic!!!

I would try different drivers before changing CCC itself to a different version..might clear it up for you..Try google and see if any other folks with the smae card as yours have issues with the game..

That's what happens if my overclock is unstable as crysis 2 is my most demanding game. (I don't own crysis warhead)

Your's is running stock though isn't it I would assume drivers.

My old OC settings passed stability testing then crashed 5 mins into crysis 2. good Luck with it.

Is the monitor that black screens connected by HDMI? Seeing a patern lately with HDMI problems similar to this.
