Windows 7: Pc Games Keep Crashing (All)

Pc Games Keep Crashing (All)

Hey all, I'm new to the forums.

So down to business, I got a pc built for me from a family member and nearly all games crash after a while some times the color goes weird with a freeze, I get a message saying -

"DISPLAY DRIVER AMD HAS STOPPED RESPONDING AND HAS SUCCESSFULLY RECOVERED"

So, I try downloading graphics driver and BIOS and all stuff I was recomended to do and seemed to work for a day and the next day it started again but even worse the pc froze and couldn't even see the message since it was all kinda brown with thick lines.

Here is my system -

Operating System - Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) (build 7600)
Processor - 3.20 gigahertz AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Board - Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-890GPA-UD3H
Graphics Card - Vapor-X Radeon HD 5870 (Overclocked Edition)
Monitor - Iiyama Pro Lite 24" Widescreen 1920 x 1080 2ms HDMI DVI-D VGA LCD Monitor with Speakers
Computer Case - Antec Nine Hundred Two ( all fans in and working)
RAM - 6gb
Hard drive - 1.81 TB
Power Supply - Antec true power quattro 1200 watt
So as you can see from my rig it must be some software issue I think, thanks in advance all.

Are you overclocking anything? And do you have the ATI Expertool loaded and the DX restribulible package with updates and fixes? Is your HD set to performance<? Have you run a chkdsk<?

This is a TDR error, possible causes are: bad RAM, incorrect RAM timings/voltages, bad GPU, overheating

Test your RAM
: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Your GPU might be overheating or may be faulty, test it in another PC

I suggest to set the default clock values using this: http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/, factory overclocked GPUs are sometimes unstable

Hi Steven

Please have a look at this thread on how to post your BSOD - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

We will need further information on your PSU - if you can, please contact your family member who assembled your computer for the make and model of the PSU.

Thanks and regards - keep us posted
