I recently downgraded drivers to 295.73 to solve the pink screen issue with my GTX 550ti, and my games began randomly closing with no error. It is only steam games that are graphics intensive. The main two I play are Skyrim and Far Cry 2. When I played Medieval II it never crashed on me. I also had no errors with a non steam game, Civilization 4. All games are played on max settings.
I grew tired of the constant closings with no error, so I just went back to the new 296.10 drivers. I began playing Skyrim again and within 5 minutes I get a BSOD.
My system specs:
Intel Core i3 2120 3.3GHz
8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1333MHz
EVGA GTX 550ti FPB (I have OC'd it before but not in a while and I got no errors when it was. This is happening on stock speeds.)
1TB WD Caviar Black SATA III
485 Watt PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
I play all games at max settings on a 1920x1080 resolution connected via DVI.
Case is very cool, cannot be over heating. Temps always below 65c.
Here is the error I get when Windows recovers:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
