    Normally we would say you've got a heat problem but your temps seem to be fine. Therefore it probably is a driver issue. Do the following...

    1. Download Driver Sweeper free version to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay; just leave all other drivers alone.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

    Did you build this system or is this a system like a Dell, HP, etc.?

    Well, i bought components 1 by 1 if u asked that
    its not a complete stock buyed PC
    i got that video card 1.5 year ago and it worked perfectly

    Update: Okay, i managed to get some drivers back (was without drivers for 30hrs -.-)
    current version:8.17.12.5896
    when i try installing the 181.71 i get the systen has not been modified -.-

    Update: Well it seemes that i solved the problem
    it was surely the nvidia drivers or the bios
    cuz when i reseted the BIOS and let win7 install normal nvidia drivers it works (on low details atleast)
    i jsut gotta test on med and high details as it was b4
    Thx 4 ur help ;)

    Good for you. My next suggestion would have been to get the latest video card driver that works. Often we find the latest or newer drivers don't work in all cases.
