I've been having problems relating to my graphics card and guild wars 2 since launch.
It can happen anywhere between 10 seconds and 10 minutes once I'm in-game depending on graphics settings but the result is that the screen freezes and becomes either a single colour (Dark brown or black) or the graphics glitch and tares but the game is still frozen.
Sometimes after 5-20 seconds if I keep hitting ctrl+alt+delete the computer un-freezes and a little message comes up at the bottom right of my screen saying 'Nvidia Display Driver has stopped working'. Sometimes I just have to hard reset as my computer becomes permenently unresponsive.
I've had this problem once or twice before in world of warcraft but it was far less frequent.
So far I've tried;
- Updating to the latest Nvidia Drivers (306)
- Rolling back to previous drivers (304, 301)
- Running with my computers side panel off (incase of overheating)
- Removing the graphics card, cleaning dust off it thoroughly (had no effect at all)
I've been monitoring temperatures and my graphics card hasn't exceeded 93 degrees which is not an unusually high temperature for my card.
The only way I can reduce the problem occurring is by lowering in-game settings (shaders in particular seems ot have a significant effect).
However the game runs absolutely smooth at maximum settings. The most obvious problem would appear to me to be the graphics card overheating but I've ruled that out so I can't think what it might be?
If anybody has had a similar problem and found a solution I would really appreciate any advice / support.
