Awesome. Hard crashing.
Well, today seems to be an interesting day. Started with while playing modern warfare 2, the computer flash a tan color, then lock up and require a reboot. After several hours of working on it, it looks like the problem is beyond me. I tried a game of Empire: Total War and it locked up the same, only a few minutes into gameplay, just like MW2.
Steps i have done to try to fix this:
1) Try a different program.
2) Use Event Viewer to try to find problems beforehand. All my efforts into finding a root cause of the problems have been wild goose chases that lead nowhere.
3) Use system restore. I restored to two different times and still have the same issue.
4) I have tried new drivers and updating windows to the fullest, as well as reverting back via system restore.
The system is fairly stable when doing regular websurfing and desktop operation.
Is it a power supply failure or is this more indicative of my graphics card failing me?
