crashing problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am having a crashing problem with my laptop, this problem will only happen with games. The games that it will crash on are Lineage 2, warrock, and CS:S used to crash but I guess it fixed it self. Im guessing this is a video card problem. I just installed catalyst 6.9 and it doesnt seem to help. Is there something I can do to fix this because I have run out of ideas.

Well when you installed the drivers did you make sure you did this :

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
