So I recently built my computer, and when I started playing games I would randomly get driver display stopped working in the middle of playing, I un-installed and tried different drivers but no luck. Today I got it it as soon as started the launcher and when I attempted to start the game my computer crashed and now it won't boot up, not even to the bios. So far I've tried a different graphic card and single memory sticks and no luck what so ever.

Any suggestions would be welcomed please.

This is usally caused by lack of power to the GPU or a bad overclock. To a lesser extent it could be caused by driver problems.

Hmm. 850w is more than enough considering I am at 750w and have 2 cards and run fine. I'd check drivers at this point. Do a complete reinstall using driver sweeper to clean out any old ones. If you're on a fresh install of windows then the last reason I can think of would be that the card is overheating or if not that then it is not handling an instruction properly and may be on it's way out.

It sounds exactly like what happened to me. In my case GTX570 died. Can you try your card in a different rig?
