    I tried too, and explained, which he accepted and moved on, a day or something later, asked the exact same question I'd answered, then made another thread about the same thing completely disregarding all help he's been given

    He's not here for genuine reasons

    OP: Is it because of this?

    Member: Yes

    next day

    OP: Is it because of this?

    Member: Yes I told you

    next day

    Op: Is it because of this?

    Member: FFS go away

    Rinse and repeat

    Hello on a new day my friends. Cheers from Poland, Wroclav.
    So here a little update about my problem.

    Updated not helped. Crash today morning.

    Overall I am getting very random driver crash only in Far Cry 4. Black screen and Application stopped . Then i saw on events: Nvlddmkm Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Its very random , sometimes i can play even 12 hours without driver crash and sometimes like today its crashed driver after 5 minutes of started game.
    Its problem with driver or my its just my card? ( i am using stock Asus Strix 980 ). I am using the newest drivers. All other games runs without even single crash. I tested Unigine Heaven for 10 hours, without crash. I tested Metro Last Light , Crysis 3, WatchDogs, for few hours without crash too.

    Only Far Cry 4 sometimes crash after 5 minutes,but mostly often i can play 12 hours without driver crash.

    Using 350.12 WHQL. Also i tested 347.88 WHQL and the same problem.


    All my pc is stock, cpu is 4790k stock. GPU is on stock too.



    Only Far Cry 4 is crashing my driver very randomly , sometimes after 5 minutes, but sometimes i can play 12 hours without crash.
    Its something with my card?

    Guys i dont know what to do now. RMA my Strix 980 because sometimes its crashing driver only in that game? Is any chance that on another Strix 980 example i will be have the same problem?

    Ignore any posts being called out.
    Ask same ? over and over.
    Do not take any advice.

    Exactly - thread needs closing, he's wanting help with a cracked game anyway, against G3D rules

    I am on patch 1.9 ( game isr original ) i bought cd key from www.allegro.pl
    Listen.

    i tested Heaven on extreme 2 times. One time i left running 10 hours, without crash. Second time i left running for 8 hours , without crash too. Also i played other games, like WatchDogs, Crysis 3, Metro LL and all fine.
    Only FAR Cry 4 is crashing my display driver very randomly, i will say very rarely. Screen turns to a black for a second and then app crash. Event viewer says about display crash.
    One time i can play FC4 even 12 hours without crash, second time it will crash after 5 minutes. It can be game issue even if it triggers TDR?


    Well, I accept that an application crashes, but NOT that it triggers a TDR. If Far Cry 4 crashes in a "normal way" (screen freeze, Windows message telling that the application has crashed), fine. But TDRs are a big no-no.

    I have important question now. It can be game issue even if it triggers TDR?

    But all I want to know is: can a hangup in a game cause a TDR? Game can cause TDR? Or its only hardware fault?

    Hey guys. Little update. I run memtest and shows 34 errors after 5 minutes. It can be problem then with memory with display crashing? ( TDR )? Display crashing ( TDR ) can be caused by memory then?

    Also today i am buying new memory set.

    Awww, aren't you just unfortunate. I thought you ran 24 hours with no memtest errors yesterday, all seemed just fine. http://forums.anandtech.com/showpost.php?p=37341943&postcount=8

    Now you have issues again? Poor you.

    Hammer would help to clear up the forum. But purely for entertainment purposes, I'd like to keep him around for a while. He does bring a smile to my face.

    Yes. One time memtest86 can go 24 hours without error. Second time after 5 minutes 34 errors.
    if I run memtest and get an multiple errors within a minute. Then run memtest the next night with the same ram, and run error free for 12+ hours, whats up with that?

    Anyway today i bought new memory:) See if it helps with FC4 crashes. Wish me good luck
