OK around a month ago i started getting this problem again ever since i reformatted my pc (my "friend" used my pc to watch some pron and i got a virus). I tried to contact nvidia directly and i got no reply, The Microsoft employees in Kuwait think that the problem is that my hardware is not compatible with vista (i did not even tell them my hardware or my problem they just jumped to that conclusion without me describing anything). I tried using this http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=518749 but it did not help. now i am stuck with a ultimate monster of a pc that Bsods within seconds of playing almost any game and crysis is about to be released(i pre-ordered it).
i now have more games and i noticed that different games have different running times
Crysis demo: milliseconds in dx10 15 minutes in dx9 then bsod
world in conflict: seconds to a couple of minutes then pc just hangs no bsod just beeping.
prey:never crashed though i did not play it for longer than 30 minutes a time.
quake4:an hour - an hour and a half then i just get a C++ runtime error.
Timeshift demo: usually crashes near the end (30 minutes) and i just crash to desktop.
Call of duty four demo: crashes the exact same point (when i am told to put the night vision) dependent on how long i play it then bsod.
FEAR: takes like 10-20 minutes then i get a C++runtime error.
can anybody help me..
oh and i am running on the 169.04 beta drivers now.
