I have an alienware aurora. It has a i7 with 2.80 ghz CPU. 9 gig RAM. Odd thing was I always thought I had 8 gig but when the guy from Dell came to repair the PC in August and put back the RAM it now shows 9 gig RAM which was what I had ordered but somehow failed to notice was not what I got. Anyway it also has a Win 7 Home premium system. Card is Geforce 580 GTX.
In late July I was for sometime having this "driver has failed and has recovered" issue and finally it spread to even surfing I called them after trying to reformatt the computer about 3-4 times. The guy from Dell came and replaced the Mother Board and Video card. All went well until last week my GW 2 started having a kernel failing issue. The display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered start to happen again. Then when I tried to play WoW I got a system lock down and to force shutdown and disconnect from the power source before the computer would actually power down. I also tried several drivers the 306.23 and 306.63 and 304.79 which was what I was using sicne August.
So I reformatted but the problem with GW 2 is still there. I am having no problems with surfing or normal watching of videos only games. I contacted Dell and they made me update my bios and chipset drives since I reformatted but the problem still persists with GW 2. So now they say it is the game so I am downloading WoW since I reformatted and The Secret World and I will check the two games out. If the problem persists in three games it is definitely not the game right ?
What I cannot understand is after they have changed the mother board and video card how this problem has come back what other thing could be the problem ?
