My BFG GTX295 getting some lock ups...
« on: January 30, 2009, 07:44:26 pm »
In certain games, such as Call of Duty World at War and World in conflict the pc will lock up, losing video signal and needing a hard restart. I KNOW my card is overclocked, and with the cpu. They are perfectly stable in any other of my games, including Crysis. I was thinking this is more of a driver issue correct? Which won't be sorted until a newer set are released? It is kind of annoying having to wait.

Hello Badbonji

does it happen also when CPU is NOT overclocked and only GPU (GTX295) is overclocked ?
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Yes I have, using leaked 185.20 drivers fixed this and managed to run games and benchmarks fine now. Thanks :)
