High end Games keep Crashing?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, My problem is, my games keep crashing to the desktop randomly..Sometimes the crash will come 5 minutes in, sometimes not for an hour, however when the game crashes the screen goes blank and then the screen goes white, or transparent and the only way to get out of it is through task manager..
Its almost like the game crashes because my temps are too high, however my graphics card temps (SLI) are at 75 degrees and my CPU temps are at 65, the only thing Im not sure how to test is my RAM, however all 6GBs of it are never used..
One solution Ive found is when I run the games with only one graphics card, it never crashes, however when I go back to SLI, I get this problem :/ But where Im confused is my temps shouldnt be high enough for a crash

Can anybody help??

System Specs:
CPU: i7 950 @ 4.0GHz
GPUs: 2 560 Ti SLI
MoBo: ASUS P6X58D-E
RAM: 6 GB G-Skill Ripjaws
PSU: 1000W Coolermaster Silent Gold Pro

Is it because of your drivers?

The last time i updated my drivers was the Beta, have they progressed since then?

I'm on Intel integrated graphics so I can't help you, but it sounds like a driver issue and you should try doing a clean install of the latest non-beta driver. See how that goes.

If it was a driver issue would that be affecting other games as well? I was experiencing the same issue on Bad Company 2 as well :/ Ill try updating my drivers now though thanks guys Ill keep you posted

If you use a single card but the OTHER card, does it still happen? One of your cards could be bad, I had this problem gradually get worse for several months before it was finally significant enough to narrow down the part.

For testing your RAM use this - memtest86+. You'll have to make an .iso cd and boot to the CD at startup (just as you would as if you were installing windows the first time).

You have different options to select, going over the website a couple times should simplify things a little. It took me a few tries before doing the right options.

Second, try to revert back to the latest WHQL drivers and not beta. It's possible it's a bad driver causing problems. Make sure you clean / uninstall your current drivers before hand. You can use a program called "driver sweeper" if needed.

Make sure your cards aren't spiking temps during game play (you said 75c), it's possible they jump during a certain point and that's when it happens. Sometimes you don't notice it.

I would also test both top and bottom card during gameplay separately, just to rule out that it's a bad card.

Hey guys thanks for the input, just an update, I updated my drivers, however the same issue, but when it crashed to the desktop I noticed the warning "Graphics Driver stopped Responding and has recovered"..so pretty sure its graphics card related :/
