    Games crash in Win8


    Hi

    I'm playing a game, and suddenly a lot of small green dots show and the game freeze - the sound is still there. I cant quit the game, and need to reboot.

    I have made a file

    Any suggestions?

    Tx

    Im on a asus 580 card... and the temp is about 45 C then this happens.

    Hi there

    Im no expert on BSOD's myself but you appear to have uploaded the actual collector tool, what the experts here need are the logs the tool produces.

    To use the collector tool:

    - Download the W8 Log Collector ZIP file and extract the EXE file
    - Right click on the extracted W8 Log Collector.exe file and click on Run as administrator
    - Click on Grab All
    - Now go to your Desktop and right click on W8 folder and click on Send To -> Compressed folder
    - Upload it to your post if you like
    Regards...

    Have a look at the suggestions in the link below.
    Start with the nVidia driver, then the other suggestions.
