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!! 

PC Specs:
Geforce GTW 560SE (Driver version 353.12)

Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 860@ 2.80GHz

4.00 GB RAM

Windows 7

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.

Would it be possible for it to be a failing power supply? I'm just shooting in the dark.

How recently did you replace your video card? I'm wondering if it isn't playing well with your motherboard.  the possibly faulty power supply makes sense but i would think Furmark would kill it as well as the gaming. could be video driver, or vbios in video card.


if you have a spare hard drive (and a spare weekend) you could try doing a fresh install of your OS with minimal software on the empty hard drive, then install just one game you know kills your pc, and see if it still has that issue.  (if not, then it's clearly a software conflict.)  Furmark should have fleshed out temperature issues also.


I"m noticing quite a few folks seem to be having issues with the Xion 700W PSU, or maybe that's coincidence.
