[COLOR=red]Hmmm this is a new one to me.. after i have managed to install 8.5 Drivers not the CCC just the display driver, after several hours into the monitor watching a movie playing games playing music... screen goes black and goes back into BIOS, then boots bakc to XP x64, never had this problem before...[/COLOR] [COLOR=red]sometimes, before the black screen, most applications start to crash like error reports, [/COLOR] [COLOR=red]Any idea what the hell this is? because once it boots back into XPx64, the OS, does not say anything, like the error didn't happen...[/COLOR] [COLOR=red]:uhm::smokin:[/COLOR] [COLOR=red]x-M-x[/COLOR]
It is most likely, either a driver problem, or a heat problem. It really sounds like a driver problem.
You may want to try updating your chipset drivers, for your motherboard. There may be some conflicting bugs.
Otherwise, try downloading a new set of drivers. Uninstall your old ones completely, then install the new download.
Sometimes a download can get corrupted. Sometimes it is a bad install. Sometimes older drivers can leave items behind, that conflict with the newer drivers, and cause these problems. Its recommended to use a registry cleaner to remove them.
Then again, it could also be heat, or dust, or a power supply going bad,...
[color=red]alright cheers, i'll give this a go, update motherboard drivers aswell and GFX drivers, you know any good registry cleaner programs? and a good driver cleaner program ?? x-M-x[/color]
