Game crashing whole computer out?!?! Every time, really?

By on February 20, 2010 7:32:48 PM from Demigod Forums Demigod Forums

Ok, so, this happened intermittently off and on for a while and I saw that early on a lot of people posted that with Vista HP SP 2, and Nvidia 9800 GTX GPU they were getting crashes...  It just started happening again and I'm really starting to get pissed off.. Is there no solution for this?  I have all the updated gpu and sound drivers.

The game runs fine on Vista HP SP 2 64 bit on my laptop (Gateway FX gaming laptop, 4 gigs ram, 1 gig 9800M GTS card), but on my home built desktop pc (evga 790i ftw mboard, 4 gigs ram, intel 2.83ghz quad core, nvidia 9800 gtx 1 gig) with the same OS (be it standalone off the shelf vista) it is now crashing everytime I play, about five mins in.  Someone please help me before I kill you all.

Thank you.

Does anyone read these?  Ever?  Anyway, on the off chance that someone reads this my PC tanked again (because I tried to play again, I know, I should know better-- yes, it happens every time now), but this time to black screen with sound still going from ingame, so I ctrl,alt,del to task manager-- wouldnt let me see the screen, but I told vista to restart the OS-- and it told me that one of the issues that needed to be closed before shutting down was "display driver has stopped working and  has recoverd" or something to that effect.  So I guess that its definitely a gpu issue then??  Maybe, maybe not????

Okay, so I think that I figured out the issue, which makes me feel like an idiot if I'm right.  I downloaded EVGA's precision  software and turned my GPU fan up manually and haven't had a crash since....  Aren't those cards supposed to have a built in temp monitor??  OH well....
