It could be just some corruption in your install. Have you tried running the -repair or -image command?

My first, and so far only, question would be - where did your friend get the GW2 account? Did he buy a new one, or was it just some account he new the login details for? It could be a hacked account that's been locked out, or some such.

I suggest you wait for support to get back to you. :)

I have no idea why your new auth codes don't work.. Maybe they are tied to the iPhone in some way.

1 - What is curently the best graphics setup for this game?(obviously it isn't the ones I'm currently using!

2 - Please tell me..... what is your current pc setup that keeps you playing for longer than 5 secs without the stupidly annoying problem that I keep having?! :-( :-(
1. I haven't played GW2 in so long, I can't remember what settings there are. If I recall though, one thing to check is that "Sampling" should be set to "native" and not "supersampling" (if that's even an option in GW2). Other than that you can knock back some of the settings like Shadows, etc, to see if that helps any.

2. My current rig is an i5-3570 with an HD7870 video card and 8Gigs of RAM. I had no problems with running GW2 (or LOTRO) in the past, and have no problems with SWTOR now.

Keeping the side panel off your machine is not a good idea. That can actually mess up the air flow so that parts of the machine run hotter.

Do other games work OK or do you only play GW2? Does it crash at other times?

Basically, it comes down to 3 things - drivers, cooling, hardware.

Drivers - As was said, make sure ALL your drivers - audio, video, chipset, etc - are up to date.

Cooling - clean the dust out of the machine. Make sure all cooling fans are working when power is on. Make sure the heatsink is properly mounted on the CPU.

Hardware - there could be an actual hardware problem, or settings could be incorrect. Reset the BIOS/UEFI* or get into it and "Load defaults". That will ensure that all BIOS settings are within specs for the various hardware pieces and are not accidentally overclocked, overvoltaged, etc.

* to reset the BIOS, there's usually a jumper on the motherboard for that. Check the motherboard/computer manual. The most common procedure is to move a small jumper from one pair of pins to another (power off, btw), wait a few seconds and put the jumper back where it was.
To get into the BIOS/UEFI you usually press a key during boot up. The most common key for this is DEL, but it could be an F key or any other key. Check the manual.
