I know this sounds weird, and i know it probably isnt WoW's fault but here's what happened:
I built my own pc (see below for some specs) over 10 years ago and have been replacing parts ever since, recently i installed a new graphics card, ram and power supply a few months ago, the pc worked like a dream and i played wow up to MoP, i stressed it playing bio shock infinite on max and recently played through dishonored on full. Then i installed WoD and everything went wrong.
After starting up WoD i was able to play for about 3 hours before my whole pc crashed see pic: (http://i.imgur.com/rK9cHz3.jpg?1
), im running two screens, one went purple the other green and i heard a buzzing sound in my speaker, after i restarted the pc i checked the log to find nothing but this:
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
I tried to start the game again but the exact same thing happened this time before i could even get into character viewer, i then tried outlast which i had been playing before without a single problem and the same thing happened (pc stops working and i get diffrent colored screens). I thought i fixed the problem by cleaning out my Processors fans and replacing the cooling gel, i played STALKER SoC for about 4 days with no problem then tried WoD again and boom after an hour same thing...
Heres what ive tried:
1) i did a mem test and it came back with no errors (memtest 86 5.1.0)
2) i did a driver roll back to 344.48, a driver i had no problem with and didnt help
3) i monitored the temperatures and the processor was at 50C before the crash
4) i did a superantispyware scan came up with nothing
5) i repaired wow through the battlenet app on my pc
6) ive tried unplugging one monitor
If anyone has any idea of what i should try or do, before i give up and format my hardrive that would be awesome (im currently running on a HDD and want to upgrade to a SSD anyways)
