Hey guys I have been having trouble fixing a recent issue of having my computer games freeze up and crash all together or just keep freezing off and on. There are no error messages following a crash. The only time I have this problem is while attempting to run games.
I have updated my nvidia driver from 353.06 to 353.12 then when that didn't work i uninstalled it completely and reinstalled fresh which didn't help. Next I used CCleaner to clean my pc along with scanning for issues with my registry. Still having the same issue. I checked and no cores are parked either (read somewhere I should check). I have FurMark stressed tested my GPU and the results showed no issues. To test my memory I ran the Windows Memory Diagnostic which came up clean. I would love some help because I really don't know what to do now and feel lost. I am not very tech savvy so i'm sure i'm missing a bunch of processes to help identify this issue so please if I am please let me know!!
Geforce GTW 560SE (Driver version 353.12)
Intel® Core i7 CPU 860@ 2.80GHz
4.00 GB RAM
Xion 700w PSU
This computer is around 5 years old. The only updated part is the GPU and memory because my first set of 2x2GB were faulty. I realize I should probably build a new comp but my personal finances are not in a position to do so.
