Hi, anyone able to help me? My new machine just keeps on crash whenever I play Skyrim and other game. The screen just hang and sometimes it may restart on it's own. There's once I tried to install java, it also crashes.
I have updated my graphic driver at nvidia website, reformat the comp and did all the updates and settings by what the Dell staff have told me to do.
But still it will hang.. anyone have such issue and have solution for it ? Thanks!
You should try Nvidia Beta driver!!
And if that does not work, it may be a hardware issue
X51/i7-3770/ GTX670 Phantom-The Shadowy Beast/ 8GB1600 MHz DDR3/ Intel SSD 160GB/ Momentus XT 500GB/Blu-Ray/Samsung Galaxy S3
GeForce 301.24 Driver BETA
I downloaded the driver but it appears that the game is very lag.. under the screen resolution.. i have NVD SIM DISP and my monitor.. and if i only use my own display, i cant access to NVIDIA control panel..
And i also tried using both display and went into the NVIDIA control panel and under 'Manage 3D settings", Global Settings.. the usual Global presets is different.. usually I just select the GTX 555 graphic and it doesnt lag anymore.. but
now it's on a different setting... please help!
i would recommend contacting support and have them help you troubleshoot this.. they can remote connect to your machine to help resolve the issue/ reinstall drivers/ etc.
I have an X51 with the same gpu, installed the driver and mine still didn't work either.
The problem is the graphics card is overheating either due to the fan not working or the card is faulty. I had to buy a completely new card for mine.
Dell said that if you buy an express warranty they can replace your gpu under warranty, but give them a call to see if that is still viable.
