    The IRQ is common with Vista/7

    I'm still getting the crash though.

    I looked into changing the FSB to make it 1:1 as it's currently 2:3 but I couldn't do it as my BIOS doesn't allow overclocking.

    Did you try anything from post #12?

    I have tried TwL's drivers before and the error still exists. I've also updated the Bios so I shouldn't need to reset the CMOS.

    Yeah makes sense on the BIOS update. Did you restore defaults after?
    Can you give us the load temps on your CPU, GPU and motherboard?

    Its possible something without a temp sensor is getting too hot.
    If all else fails, blow a housefan at the PC (case side off) and see if it helps.
    If so, we need to track down what is getting hot.

    Yes defaults were restored, I also reset the CMOS after my last post and played COD4 a little. Didn't crash for 2 maps but I had to close the game, I'll try getting a few hours in later to see if it crash's.

    Played for a few hours tonight and then it crashed again.

    Think I'm going to get a refund on this card and buy a different one.

    download msi afterburner, and use it to increase the card's vcore... it helped to eliminate the artifacting i am getting in 3dmark vantage's 'jane nash' test, so it might help you solve your crashing too if it is caused by the GPU

    by the way, when you run memtest, you dont just do one run, people normally leave it for the whole night just to make sure
    also, there are 2 programs that i know of which can help you test your cpu... Prime95 and Intel Burn Test (shortened to IBT)

    just seen your vid looks like some overclocking artifacts on your screen there buddy. If you've oc'ed try knocking your oc down a bit especially this time of year, if the ambient room temp is up so will be your micro chips !
