I am using Windows 7 x64 bit edition. Everything works great with XP so I know I'm not having any hardware specific issues, it's definitely a compatibility issue somewhere within windows 7.
When I am playing steam games (counterstrike, team fortress 2).. about 5-10 minutes into the game, it locks up and closes. When it closes it pops up with an error but it closes out too fast to see what it says. I have an nVidia 9600 GT.
What I've tried:
-Updating my drivers
to the windows 7 drivers.
-Using the drivers that windows 7 automatically installs for you.
-Running the games in compatibility mode for XP service pack 2 and administration mode.
-Reformatted three times.
-The video card is not overheating (tested it).
I really need some help. It's very frustrating and I can't figure out what's going on!
Thanks for any help.
