Windows 7: Graphics Card causing BSOD

02 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Premium 64bit

@Britton30 Whats #3?

OK guys i found that disabling shadows and reducing the multi-sampling down from 16x to 8x prevents the crash for the most part (lasts about 3-4 hours) in World of Warcraft and in League of legends. In planet side 2, i reduced all settings to low and reduced rendering quality to 50% and it ran smoothly without a crash. I believe now that the shadows were a part of the problem, and if any fixes are available for that any help would be appreciated. If no fixes are available i will take the card back to micro center and just hot-swap it for a different card.

Btw something i forgot to add is that my card is factory super clocked (I'm assuming that means that it is overclocked already.) and if this changed anything or if there is a way to undo the overclock please let me know because i don't need it to be overclocked yet.

Guys i replaced my power supply and all problems are fixed, i guess my old one just wasn't providing enough juice for the cpu and video card together. Thank you to everybody who helped.
