pc keeps crashing while playing games

Hello forums!

about 2 weeks ago while playing fifa 14 my computer crushed.
as a result i tried to find a solution.
first i tried to clean the computer from dust but it kept happening.
then i formatted my computer but again it kept happening.
so i checked my cpu temprature and it was 67, so i changed my thermal paste and now it doesn't go over 50 while playing games.
but it keeps crushing.
i ran a benchmark and it passed it
now it doesn't crush while playing fifa but it crushes when im playing cod ghosts

so i got this report:

  1. Are you overclocked? Does your GPU have a dual BIOS?

    i'm not overclocking and i don't know if my gpu have dual bios how do i check it?
  3. Does the actual card have a small switch on it?

    just checked and no, i didn"t see any switch
  5. hmm, alright, could be a driver issue then... Have you recently updated your drivers?
  6. You could try rolling back your video drivers to an older version, see if that helps... Also check to see if your motherboard has a BOIS update.

    How does the PC perform with no GPU? (Besides gaming) do you have any issues running the integrated graphics?
  9. it runs perfect
  10. So it's the GPU or the Drivers... Completely remove all drivers with the GPU uninstalled. Run Cleanup programs.. CCleaner, MVRegclean... etc. Once you are POSITIVE that every but of the old drivers are removed, Re-install your card and make sure all of the power connectors are correct and that the card is seated correctly in the PCI slot.

    1. Go to Control Panel, and click on "Uninstall a Program"

    2. Click on "AMD Catalyst Install Manager"

    3. Click on "Express Uninstall" in the AMD Catalyst Install Manager and go through the uninstallation process, then reboot the computer.

    4. Click on the Start Menu, type “Show hidden files and folders” into the search box, then press ‘Enter’.

    5. Make sure you are on the “View” tab. In the “Advanced Settings” box, scroll up to “Files and Folders”, and then the subfolder “Hidden files and folders”. Click on “Show hidden files, folders, and drives”.

    Keep in mind, in steps 7-11, there may not always be an AMD or ATI folder in the directories mentioned, but these are all the possible destinations for AMD and ATI files/folders to be found.

    6. Navigate to C:\ on your computer and delete any folders labeled "AMD" or "ATI".

    7. Navigate to C:\Program Files (as well as C:\Program Files (x86) if you are running a 64 bit operating system), and delete any AMD/ATI folders.

    8. Go into C:\Users (make sure you can see hidden files and folders) and go into C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local and delete any AMD/ATI folders. (yourname should be replaced with the username for the current Windows user)

    9. Do the same in the C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming, again replacing yourname with the username for the current Windows user.

    10. Do the same as in Step 8 in C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local

    11. Do the same as in Step 9 in C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming

    12. Click on the Start Menu, type “regedit” into the search box, then press ‘Enter’.

    13. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE, and delete any folders labeled "AMD" or "ATI"

    14. Inside the SOFTWARE folder, scroll down to Wow6432Node. Click Wow6432Node and delete any folders labeled "AMD" or "ATI".

    15. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and delete any folders labeled "AMD" or "ATI", then reboot the computer.
  11. What PSU do you have? Also list the full system specs please.
  12. cpu: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz

    gpu: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680

    memory: 4x 4GB Corsair CML16GX3M4A1866C9 DIMM DDR3 (1.65GHz 256-bit) PC3-14900 (9-10-9-27 5-36-12-6)

    motherboard: ASUS P9X79

    psu: Seasonic X-850 (SS-850KM3 Active PFC F3)

    cpu cooler: corsair h110i

  13. What are your CPU and GPU temps under FULL LOAD?
  14. cpu 50c
    gpu 50c
  15. Those numbers are under FULL load. CPU should be tested during prime95 and GPU should be tested during HEAVY gaming.
  16. so while prime 95 my cpu was around 60c
    while benchmarking my gpu with 3dmark 11 it crushed around 54c
    so i restarted my computer. after 30 seconds it crushed again while doing nothing
