Wait, so it was good before? And if so, when did it start to do that?

I'm pretty sure you did, but i'll just ask to be sure. did you complete remove the old drivers before installing the cap3?

The witcher 2 isn't a console port...

but the problem is the CPU, i lead to believe is motherboard drivers.

Is the game a fresh install? or you copied the folder?

Maybe some kind of virus? Try running anti virus for a shot.

fresh install of the game.

it wouldn't be a damaged MoBo would it? i overclocked my PCI bus to 101MHz from 100 when i overclocked my CPU i read on Google it damages you video card and kills your MoBo i didnt know that is that true?

ill install comodo AV right now and run a scan

Usually if its something hardware related, it doesnt just run like that. It will cause artifacts, crash on opening/loading a game or program that stresses the bad part, crash on a heavy load, crash seemingly randomly out of programs, BSOD/crash out of Windows. Stuff like that. It also seems like a software issue to me. Are you absolutely sure you have all the latest drivers for everything? Check your mobo's website.

Very strange that it happened out of the blue. Think back to when it happened if you made any changes to anything, anything at all around that time.

yeah i have only had 1 BSOD and i caused it. the only thing that changed was i had my 8800GT in the second PICe slot for about an hour maybe less. And when i pulled it out it still worked fine but a few hours after that it started messing up.
