5 mins of play = Black screen.
« on: December 30, 2009, 04:02:58 PM »
Right quick specs,

Processor: Intel i7 920 @ 3Ghz
Graphic Cards: Nvidia Geforce 9800 x2 (On SLI)


Right so the problem I am having is that I cannot play the damn game for more then 5 - 10 mins without the screen going black, sometimes I can hear the sound still, sometimes it just freezes completely. Every time I have to restart my computer..

I suspect the cards might be over-working themselves, thinking the game is more demanding then it actually is. Though I am un-sure..

Any help?

 I really don't think it's the audio, but..


Reatek HD Audio...  I just updated my drivers to a beta driver, seems to actually be working better now. So we will see.... I still assume the worse tho.

Lmao, Nah my Realtek seems to  <3 me.  

32 mins of play and no problems, she holds out for over and a hour and all assume it's fixed.

I didn't think audio could give me problems like that either, but it did. Realtek is crap. Once I switched over to a real soundcard I stopped having problems completely.

Try running the game with sound disabled for a while and see if it still crashes.
