I was playing Fallout 3 and it has run fine for the last year or so, i played all the expansions except Anchorage, i installed it and got to the point where you go into the simulator and then it started stuttering and artifacts start appearing on the screen. it crashes and i Ctrl+alt+del to desktop.
Up to this point i have had this happen before.
Then on the desktop i get a pop up about the driver
stopped responding and has recovered, never happened before. I reload the game and it does the same thing.
So i checked my drivers
and i was on 190.something and the newest is 260.99. i uninstalled the old drivers, rebooted, installed the new drivers, rebooted. Sorted right? no.
I run the game this time i dont even get in the simulator and load the alaska level before it starts jumping and massive lines and grey blocks appear. then the computer locks up and i have to manually restart.
I tried it in other games and it runs for a minute or so then does the artifact, lock-up, ctrl+alt+del, desktop & message thing again. Also i sometimes happens when im simply on the internet and the screen flashes and i get the message again in the corner.
Is this a sign that i need to get a new card or do the new drivers simply not work and the card cant play that level of fallout and i should have just left it?
So what should i do???
Thanks in advance!!!!
