HELP! 400 Series Random Lockups while Playing games?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First of all let me start by saying thank you to everyone at overclock.com for being patient enough to bare with the tons of questions I had asked recently, its just that I have so many things going on in my head and I need so many tons of questions answered..

Now back to the topic, since last week I have noticed some weird lockups during gameplay, I recently even updated to the latest nVidia drivers, but that didn’t fix it.

I use windows 7 and now whenever I play Mafia 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction My computer locks up after say 5 – 10 mins and I have to restart my PC. This only started happening recently and only if I am using the 400 series cards. this only happens in games not in furmark. After doing some google something tells me that it could be a driver issue and not a heat or power issue

Anyone here facing the same Lockup’s ? Running the 260GTX, everything runs fine, but as soon as I use the 460GTX or 480GTX lockups start happening…
