i7 2600k @ 3.40 GHz
Asus P8P67LE motherboard
2 Radeon HD 6850 in crossfire (12.8 CCC drivers)
60gb SSD and 1TB HDD (GW2 and all PC games boot off the latter)
Ok, here's my problem. When i click the Guild Wars 2 icon, it brings up the login screen and i login in and click play. After that, the screen goes black, and then it flickers a couple times (flickers black, as weird as it sounds). and then it will freeze. and when i say freeze, my ENTIRE PC freezes so that i have to power it down and then power it back up. now, the weird thing is that once i do that and boot windows back up, it will run. it'll still flicker after login and play, but it'll make it to the character screen and i can play, and i won't have any problems while playing. it only does it the first time after powering my PC on.
i participated in a couple beta events and it didn't do it then, and for the first day or two of the early start, it also didn't do it. but now it's doing it, and i don't know why. when it did it earlier today, the GW2 client had to "repair damaged files" or something like that after i launched. but it still froze my computer up later in the day after coming home and turning it back on.
does anyone have any ideas what's wrong? it only does this for Guild Wars 2, other games load up fine. and like i said, it never used to do it for GW2, it just started a couple days ago.
please let me know if you have any ideas.
***edit*** i did notice that it started happening around the time i upgraded to 12.8 drivers, which was a day or two ago. could that be it?
