  • Games locking up and crashing problem help

    So recently I have been having ARMA crash on me in the middle of a mission. When it does, the screen kind of flickers a bit, and may have a little bit of the screen still showing, usually in a band, and then the screens go black (I run dual monitor). It has done this like 30 times, causing me to hard crash my system because nothing responds. Twice it has actually done it and after about 20 sec. it crashed and returned me to desktop with an error saying Nvidia was to blame and it recovered itself.

    So yesterday on comms I heard someone mention they had the same thing happening, and I just got a PM from Warlab saying it keeps happening to him (he didn't know I was having the same problem.)

    So my question is, anybody else having this problem? I am using the next to newest GPU drivers, and I am going to update to the newest ones today, but I know Warlab is using them already, so I don't think that is the problem.

    The fact that it happens after a good while of gaming would lead me to think maybe heat is the problem.

    After goggling for a while, I find out other people are having problems as well, and I'm sure they are not playing ARMA. Anybody else having problems with Nvidia cards? I posted this in the ARMA section as well, but more people visit here, so thought I would ask.

      You might as well post the rest of your system specs. Those details are important when troubleshooting.

      It's possible that newer drivers are causing these problems. My old 7900GT couldn't use drivers past a certain date without having severe artifacts.

        Yeah, I can't believe I left that out. We are all running Nvidia cards, and are starting to find lots of forums with the same problem.

        Jeepo and I both have 8800GTS, Warlab 9600 (though he took it out last night after more crashing and put in his old 7500 or something, and no more crashing).

          I had crashing problems that were driver related constantly with the 8800GT card. I have had very little to no problems with 175.16 though others have reported some problems with it relating to "sleep mode" or something?

          I went through a pile of drivers before I found one that works. Good luck.
