    This is the display error i keep on recieviing..... Basically after my computer runs for 6-12+ hours... I am getting this msg that pops up over and over. My montior blinks on and off and eventually it crashes into a safe mode so there no damage done to my computer... Its almost like if it heats to a certain temperature or something I am not sure. I am pretty sure its got something to do with my monitor....

    I believe this is the case because i can have my guys macroing or whatever or my computer running for hours with the monitor off and it runs fine soon as the time limit goes up and i turn that monitor on 1-2 min later the msg appears and does the same thing over.

    Anyone have a clue please assist me.

    You're running 'Vista'?

    I did a google search for nvlddmkm, which is what shows on your screenie. I found shed loads of posts on boards complaining about the same thing, a few seemed to have solutions.

    I suggest you repeat my google search and look for yourself, there seems to be more than one way of dealing with it.

    but to talk about the problem, without googling anything, id assume that you either have messed up drivers installed or a hardware defect. try removing your display drivers completely, then reinstall the newest drivers. also get this tool: http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php and let it run for a few hours and keep an eye on the gpu temp.

    also if you tell me which graphiccard you use, it would help to find the exact drivers to use and max temp allowed. also a common thing under vista is if you only have one graphic card, make sure that SLI is deactivated in your nvidia settings.
     
  8. Reminds me very much of a problem i had a while back. Went round and round trying to fix it. My computer would would get errors, or crash almost like clockwork frequently.

    Problem fixed by opening computer case and blowing out a ton of dust from a well hidden power supply fan. I had never seen that inner cooling fan till i looked at it real close. It was on the underside of the power supply, real close to the main board.

    if it always happens around the same time then perhaps its a memory leak. open the task manager and sort the processes by memory.
    perhaps do this each hour and record the value. see it the memory keeps climbing.
    it almost sounded like the card is overheating too. do you have to be running the game for that long or just have the computer on?
