Civilization V driver issues


Jan 12, 2012
Hi everyone,
I have a home build that's been working fine for almost a year now, but I just got Civilization V and it periodically crashes my computer. The game will just freeze and go to a black screen, so I ctrl-alt-del to the task manager and I get a popup window saying:

"FGXRender11:: Present Failure hr = DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED. Driver Failure"

I click "ok" (it's the only option in the popup), and another window pops up telling me that Civ 5 has stopped working, hit "ok" again, and I get a BSOD.

Does anybody know what's causing this, or have a driver update that could solve it?

My DirectX11 is up to date, my GPU drivers are up to date, and my BIOS is up to date. I do have my CPU overclocked, but it passed a 24 hour stress test and it's been stable for the past 6 months.

Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hey mate

its actually a nvidia driver error
they fucked it up with there last patch i have the same problem with my civ 5
the only thing we can really do is either roll back the update install the old patch or wait for nvidia to get there *** together
