    When your computer crashes do you get blue screens? If so in order to help you we need your minidumps.

    How to find your minidumps:

    My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files. It is these files that we need you to attach to your next posting, NOT the whole folder.

    The attachment button is at the bottom in the Attach Files box (scroll down).

    It could be a heat issue. When you play games the load on your video card increases thus increasing heat. Too hot and your system shuts down.

    How is your air flow? How many case fans do you have and are they working? Is your video card's fan working? Is anything blocking the air flow from your vid card?

    That is an Nvidia driver. Update your drivers for your Nvidia card. Many, many, many people experience issues with the driver you list.
