Okay so... my shiny 3-month old GTX 460 has decided it wants to take a dump on me. Any game I tried to play today immediately caused my card to seize up and crash. Even WoW! It seems to be able to reboot itself, and I can use my web browser just fine... hell even Photoshop CS4 is allowing me to do some intensive stuff, but if I start up a 3D game... BOOM!

I thought maybe new drivers would help... No fix. WoW still crashes within 10 seconds of logging into the game. Fallout New Vegas... crashes within 10 seconds.

Can't be heat. Computer was cold, and my temp monitor shows the GPU hasn't gone above 40C today. Games ran perfectly last night... played WoW for about 3 hours, Fallout for about 2 before that.

God... I hope it's just the video card... the only part in my PC that's still got a warranty cuz I can't afford a new machine right now...


Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

Aww I feel for you. Fingers crossed it's your card. I hate it when things go wrong with mine, cos I'm so inept I never have a clue what the problem is.
