Windows 7: Crash during gaming? Poss graphics card issue.

Crash during gaming? Poss graphics card issue.

Hi all,

I've been playing Football Manager 2012 and seem to get a recurrent crash whereby the screen goes either white with pinstripes or black with tan pinstripes. The other day it went black with a few large pixels (through which I could see the gamescreen). Interstingly enough it then went back to the game ok.

I've downloaded catalyst control centre for my card (ATI HD5770) and check for updates, but I'm pulling my hair out.

Interestingly I seem to be getting the occasional BSOD now (which I have posted on the relevant forum).

Are there other drivers I should be updating and if so which ones?

appreciate any help.

Sorry you are having problems.

By relevant forum, do you mean:

Crashes and Debugging - Windows 7 Forums

If so, I would just use that thread to resolve this issue. Most likely they are related, and it helps avoid cross-threads.

There, you can follow instructions for posting BSODs.

Hi Lemur,

Apologies - I was merely referring to a thread that was a side issue. I'm on here specifically regarding the pinstripe crash and whether/how it's video card. Also what drivers I should be updating.

Other uses for a graphics card besides gaming?
Hello, I know I bought a graphics card just 2 days ago but have decided to take a break from gaming for a bit. Are there any other things I can do online that can use my graphics card? Example: Watch videos but make them more high-def with my graphics card? Or anything else? Thanks
