    OK, if *all* your games are hanging, then it sounds like your video card is overpowering your CPU - nVidia drivers (the non WDDM anyway) will put the cad in a low power draw mode since 1.75.xx and when you run your game all of a sudden it tries to jump up in power by readjusting all the clocks back to rated speeds - which is a major power draw.

    I'd check another card and/or check that card in another OS again....

    If it is not related to the card in anyway, Then I'd suggest a fresh install of W7....

    My CPU? Do you mean my PSU? That's not it - solid PSU.

    Maybe a wipe versus an upgrade. I wiped all of the drivers, started with the WDDM drivers, and then the nVidia-provided drivers on their web site. No go.

    Yeah, fingers flying faster than the brain then - I meant PSU - but if it isn't your PSU and it isn't the drivers, I'd check out the card itself then....

    Something somewhere ain't right....

    I just installed the 181.25 drivers - and the installation screen said "Windows 7 (64bit) driver installation...."

    I *do* get a better WEI with WDDM drivers, but I get a better frame rate in GTA:IV with the 181 driver - so I think you can guess which one wins

    Have you tried reinstalling WOW from scratch?

    That is great. GTA IV crashes within 5 minutes of playing on my machine
    Asus m2n-sli
    evga 9800gtx sli
    wddm1.1 drivers.

    When I had 8600gt sli game still crashed but usually recoved. I will try NVIDIAs latest drivers and if that doesn't work then its probably 470W PSU.

    (Update) I installed latest Nvidia windows 7 drivers and GTA IV stopped crashing

    Welcome to the last 3 posters. Now I'm not tryin to be ugly or anything but if you'd start your own thread it makes it easier to help 1 at a time. thanks. @Robiduff Sometime with the laptop video cards you need to modify the .inf file to get thm to work properly using the laatest driver for your card from Nvidi a Then by following this sites instructions on the mod you should have a fully working driver NVIDIA MobilityModder -

    @humanoutlaw. Welcome: I would update my chipset drivers first. Then let us know what your display adapter is reported as in device manager. Thanks. Fabe
