    Crash in every games

    sorry if I post it in wrong section.
    when I was updating to the beta driver, fallout 3 crashed and my desktop color becomes messed up, I have to restart the PC, so I though that was the driver's fault.

    But even after downgrading to old WHQL drivers it still happens I wonder what caused this?

    I didn't overclock anything either

    EDIT : it seems this happens in all games too

    Reinstall the game. Maybe the files got corrupted or something like that.

    Download and install the latest patches for the game. That should fix your problem. :)

    I think you need to reinstall the OS.

    Don't reinstall your OS..if anything make sure you are removing your previous video drivers correctly. There are alot of posts about this in the drivers section. It's a pain but works wonders.

    Is there a message that says your nv_disp.dll (or something like that, can't remember it off the top of my head) has stopped working?
    If yes, then you need to remove your drivers, run driver sweeper, boot into safe mode, install your last good drivers, and boot back into windows and see if this fixes your problems.
    If no, then maybe the contacts of your GPU need cleaning. This can easily be done with some (read: MINUTE amount :p) white vinegar and a q-tip. Just dip the q-tips into the vinegar and swipe the contacts. Remember to dry the contacts afterwards.
    Obviously wait a little while and see what the other gurus say before you rip your card out and go through all that hassle :)

    I did this :
    1. uninstall driver via control panel
    2. clean with driver sweeper
    3. reboot into safe mode
    4. clean the leftover file with driver sweeper
    5. reboot then install the stable driver (182.08)

    still crash:cry:

    EDIT : this didn't happen before I installed the 182.46 beta driver, I think there's something to do with it?
