Hardware Failure Detected


Good grief, this has become rediculous.  I had this issue with Guild Wars, having to bypass this stupid non-existent error with command line arguments.  Using -dsound -dx8 & -oldauth.


None of my hardware is OC'd, my CPU is running fine and every other game works great, even ran Prime 95 and it passed with flying colors, recently bought new Corsair Vengeance RAM.  My 750w PSU is great, plenty for my system, nothing is overheating and all are stable at low temps.


And here I am again, having the same issue with GW2, must be something on their end detecting false BS, preventing me from playing.  Anyone know or have a solution to this or are experiencing the same problem?  I've contacted ANet live tech support in the past for GW and not once did they ever refer me to those command line arguments, so I doubt they'd be any help with GW2.
