Hello,

On the beginning, sorry for my english mistakes. So, my problem looks like this. Some games : Bioshock 2, Just Cause 2, Assasins Creed 3, Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs, Saints Row the Third, Viva Pinata are crashing to desktop. The same way. After one minute of playing, hour, on cinematics or loading screen.
They minimize to desktop, without any mistake meassage, I can't turn them back, only task manager helps to shoot them off. Sometimes it's crash with information that screen driver kernel model bla bla stop workind but now is good. But very rare. I realizes that when the game crash, temperature on my graphics card rises for couple of second for about 10 degrees. Always the same. Other games working perfectly.
I don't know what to do, i try running them by administrator, compability modes, fresh windows system, nothing. Please Help!!

My computer: Intel Core i5 2500K- 3,3 Ghz, As Rock P67 Pro 3, Asus Geforce GTX 570 1280 MB DDR5 DirectCu II, 500 GB Samsung F3 , 2 x 4 GB GoodRam DDR3 1333 Mhz, XFX Core 550W.

This might be a frustrating question to hear but are you using the very latest Nvidia drivers?

Your card might be over heating or maybe you have pirated copies of games? It can also be your psu. Maybe when the video card is at full load your psu can't provide power.

Can't be psu, that would crash the whole computer, not just the software. Get your drivers straight from nvidia. Manufacturer drivers aren't always reliable and are usually old.

I dont think that my card i over heating because the temp is max 50 C . The drivers are 306. 23. so up to date. Withcer 2, Prototype 2 , Batman Arkham City on full details run perfectly for me, the crashing games too when they are working. No glitches, no artifact nothing. Runs perfectly on high or very high, but minimizes suddenly and gone. Its so weird.

Sorry for that. I installed oldest drivers, this that come with my graphics card, and Far Cry 3 last a bit longer, about 30 minutes without crashing. So maybe something with drivers?

Did you use driver sweeper between driver installs? If not then use it and then reinstall the latest official driver, not beta, from Nvidia.com

I used it, installed newest drivers, game freezes after 5 second. So I used driver sweeper to uninstall drivers and second time installed oldest. Working fine to this time, about 1,5 hour. I have more time on Sunday for testing.

So it is minimizing to desktop? Is the game still running when this happens or no? If yes there is probably some program running in the background causing these problems.

Yeah it's still running for a while. I hear the sound from the game, but I can't return with alt+tab. I can switch it off only by task manager.

No, only some games that I mentioned. Is there a program that I can use to notify what is going on in the background?

I downloaded process monitor to see wich process occurs after the game minimizes. I played Deus Ex HR, it minimizes to desktop, and in PM I see that adiodog.exe process occurs. What is this? I read about some fix from microsoft to this but I can't download it. Any ideas?

My graphic card is overlocked from the beginning. It's Asus Geforce GTX 570 Direct CU II. I don't do anything with it.

Did this start happening recently or was it happening since the start of owning the PC? How old is this PC?

The PC is 1,5 year old. From the beginning it was ok, games was working perfectly. The first game to react that way was Bioshock 2. Then I think Saints Row The Third, Max Payne 3 etc. This problem occurs only in some games, other work good, like Dark Souls, Football Manager 2013, Darksiders 2, Prototype 2 etc.
