Re: while playing gta my system gets crashed

That is bug generated by the game it self, and it is interfering with the graphic drivers. Try using diferent nvidia drivers and of course try playing the in windows xp compatibility mode.
Hope it helps

PNY GeForce GT440 crashes every time I play a video game.

Hello try to renew the graphic driver from here:

By selecting the model, and your windows system.

You can also use the auto find function.

By installing a small bit of software.

Maybe your power supply is too small for gaming performance
consider to upgrade that, if the driver update does not work.
I suggest a 500 watt PSU, so the graphic does not runs out of power.

Good luck

Constant crashes during any game

I had this exact problem with my Geforce graphics card. After ensuring that it wasn't overheating, I opened up the PC and reseated (removed and plugged it back in firmly) the graphics card. This actually fixed the issue. Issue caused by a poor connection probably due to too much dust inside the PC.
Failing that, the graphics card would need to be replaced.

I recently bought a XFX HD 5770 GPU Card. After placing it on my motherboard, I casually played games and monitored the temperature of my CPU and GPU. When playing games like GTA IV, the temperature of CPU...

I suggest that you get an additional cooling fan, just for your video card, as San Andreas is a highly complex game that utilizes the video gpu very hard. Oblivion is another game which does the same thing. Also, I would look at getting a seperate case cooler, the more fresh air you can get into the case, the cooler things will be.

ATI RADEON x1650 PRO 512 Crash...

Their is a reason that it crashes and it is not because of the game if  it crashes at other times too. Toom much HEAT is usually the problem. Look for slow or stopped fans. Dust on the heatsink.Run the antivirus. After that clean and defrag the hard drive. Let me knw that that did not take care of the problem.

Geforce 8600 gts drivers crash and recover moments later

Sorry for the bad news, but you've seem to have witnessed a graphic card meltdown...

During games, cards get quite melting hot! If there's a little problem or inefficiency in the card cooling system (Active Fan or Passive Airflow) Your card will simply melt a few little contacts, enough to produce what you saw or even worse!. (Basically just in the graphic 3D render portion of the board, thats why you could still see windows some times but Aero (3D) started glitching later).

If you wish, you can verify this at your own risk opening up your case and placing your finger on the free corner of your card and bending/arching it a little to the sides when windows or your games are running... It may restore contact at the melted away points for a few seconds for you to see, but won't repair it, you'll maybe see how images get better or worse with the bending, proving the meltdown situation.

Return your card if you can or buy a new one, before the crashes mess up your windows. Buy a new one from a good manufacturer and clad with an elaborated cooling system, if you plan to run 3D heavy games, stay away from the weird branded, cheapest or heavily discounted cards are usually the ones most prone to fail this way. If you go ATI, buy ATI made cards. If you go NVidia, buy BFG for example.

G-Force 8800GTX

Two things come to mind immediately: power and motherboard drivers. With no more details than you've given, that's about the best you're going to get.

Power: Newer cards **** watts like nobody's business. If you've got an older power supply it simply may not be strong enough to run the PC and the graphics card. Along this line, if the PSU is defective/failing/too warm it might not be putting out enough watts regardless of it's age or rating.

Drivers: Make sure your motherboard drivers are updated. It's not even unheard of for a company to ship a mobo with features/capabilities turned off or limited for a variety of reasons. Usually those get turned on in an update sometime down the road. Not to mention that the shipping drivers could just be flaky. You're mainly interested in southbridge drivers here.

And don't overlook updating DirectX and (sometimes) the system BIOS.

These are generic answers - "my pc crashes" is like telling a doctor "I don't feel good": What kind of diagnosis can he give from THAT?
