    Crashes, FPS drops and BSOD's

    Hello 8 forums.

    So after i installed Win. 8 a few weeks ago, i started getting errors.When ever i play games, my framerate drops from 50-60 FPS to 10-20.When i first open a game, its okay for the first 10 minutes, and after that, it drops for 3-5 minutes, then returns normal again for 10 minutes, it repeats and never leaves.
    I've also gotten a weird problem outside games.At random points when the PC is on, the driver crashes, and i get an error screen like this

    The Screen goes black for a moment, returns, goes black again and show's this message, it then repeats for 2 -3 times and returns to normal.
    I've tried looking for a solution, but i cant find anything.

    My Spec's are

    RAM - 4 GB
    Card - Nvidia GTS 450
    Motherboard - ASRock N68-VGS3 FX
    processor - AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core
    PSU - Energon 650W

    or all detailed specs

    You might try the beta version to see if it may work better for you.
