Im using just one videocard, but when i posted this in another spot someone said to post it here as well. 

I recently built a new computer, the specs are in my sig @ the bot.

I have tried just about everything that i have found on the internet to fix it. 

I updated all windows updates, tried 4 different card drivers, including the new 12.1 preview. I updated my bios this morning cause i saw someone recommend it earlier.

I cant seem to get it working. When i try and test out BF3, it plays for a few minutes depending on how many people are ingame and the map, then it freezes. 

 

When i tab out i see the 'Display driver stopped responding and has recovered."

 

The only thing i have yet to try is messing around with the voltage that the card is getting. 

I have MSI afterburner installed but have not messed with anything within it.

 

nothing is overclocked (except the card came pre-oc'd, i think)

 

any help would be nice, id like to get this thing working. Let me know if there is anything else that you need to know and ill upload it. 

thanks for the help.

tapao.

it happened when trying to get into a game of League of Legends.

This is really bugging me, i have no idea what to do next to get it to be stable during game play.
