when i play a computer game, my system crashes after only a few minutes on games like oblivion and dreamfall and RTW... my system is athlon64 3200, 1gig ram, 6600gt... i think the graphics card is responsible and that i need to download a new driver, but i don't know what driver i should use. the nvidia site doesn't make it clear at all wether or not a certain driver is suitable for me! can anyone help? thanks.
should i just ignore this? : "* This driver is WHQL certified for all GeForce 7 series and a limited number of GeForce 6 series GPUs. "
How is that unclear? :p
And yes, ignore WHQL.
This is what it supports so ignore it

lol thanks. i guess i'm not very observant
Basically, it supports your card.
All what you read means is that you will need to click 'Continue Anyway' on a dialog box that will pop up during installation saying that they drivers are not WHQL certified.
This is perfectly normal, and does not indicate a problem.
ok, so, i installed the driver, but the games still crash after a few minutes of playing... the computer in question does not have an internet connection, so it can't be virused. any suggestions? :mad: do u think i need to turn down the graphics accelerator? would that cause the game to be unable to run properly anyway?!
I'm wondering, is this computer networked to any other computer that has internet access?
