Windows 7: Could graphics card be crashing my system?

Could graphics card be crashing my system?

Hi ,

For a long time now I've been struggling with random freezes on my pc (see previous post: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...hics-card.html

These have continued and recently come to a head when trying to play Assassins Creed 2. It freezes the minute the game loads and I just get white noise from the speakers & have to hard reset the system.

I'm not getting any BSOD's - the whole system just hangs.

I'm just wondering whether (seeing as the ESTools came back clean) it's my graphics card that is causing the problem (and whether AC2 is triggering it?), but don't know how to check?

Could anyone give any advice at all?

Thanks

Nick
