I was running windows 10 with my rig and everything was fine, I felt that it was still buggy and thought I would ride with 8.1 a while longer till everything is ironed out. After the install, everything ran great and then the game froze up. Screen dead froze. I was still able to Alt-Tab out of the game and everything else still runs fine(even other games -wow, league..) I have tried updating windows and drivers, I thought my page file was set to low, it was at 2gb, so I kicked it up to 8g, still happens. I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling fresh. I just can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated.

 

 

p.s. sorry if this is in the wrong place.

 

 

Speccy attached.

Are you using the same drivers that you had loaded previously with Windows 8.1?

 

Were you having this problem previously with Windows 8.1?

 

What is the make and model of you PSU?

When running windows 10 I never experienced the problem. Ever since the Win8.1 install the problem has arrived. I am not sure what drivers I was using before the switch. The PSU is CX750M.

Do you think I may be drawing to much?

That PSU should be sufficient for that system.

 

Go to NVIDIA, Click on Drivers, then select the proper specifications for your GPU, click on Search.

 

The dates for drivers go back to November of 2015.  Select a driver that coincides with the date you installed your PGU.

 

Edit:  A newer driver does not mean that it will be better than the older driver.
