PC crashes after few minutes of play
 
This has happened about five times to me now. It varies between about 3 and 15 minutes after starting the game. My screen will go black stating 'No Input Detected' and there is a subtle but noticeable increase in the fan speed of the GPU, so it seems to be graphic driver related. I have a GeForce 9800 GX2, and I have the latest drivers (195.62 as of 14/01/10).

Still in beta, so I know there's probably no fix for this as yet, just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

There are known issues with the newer graphics drivers for nVidia. Until nVidia gives us updated drivers or at least a hotfix, you'll want to use older drivers (190.xx according to others on the forum) -- can't remember the xx part. Not sure which I'm using, but I haven't updated them recently, so could very well be that driver version.

Thanks I'll give that a go. Happened for the sixth time while I was trying to make an official bug report in game lol. :rolleyes:

Same, posted this 2 days ago and several followups and others reportinig same issue but no fix. I'll try what's been suggested in this thread. I posted this in the 'showstoppers' thread too but there's so much crap in there that's not a showstopper or critical that they'll probably never see it.

No luck...
 
Alas, Driver roll back failed. :( Tried the 190.62 but same problem occurs. I'm now going to try the 195.81 which is a beta driver. I'll report back

I'm having the same problem. I have 9600 GSO. I hope they can fix this soon. I know it's just a beta but it would make it easier to play the game.

Also I my graphics are pretty bad on my computer and I have 4gb of ram and amd 3800+ 64x2

Beta drivers failed too. Considering trying some of my older GeForce cards, but I believe they all use the same drivers... :(

Well that blows. :( I wish somebody from STO would comment on this. It's in several threads here now, but no aknowledgement whatsoever. :(

I fixed mine ... Here is how...

1) Enable Vsync.
2) Disable the PhysX on the Nvidia
3) Download Riva-Tuner

Make sure your card is NOT running hot, and if it is, move the %40 fan speed to 60-80% to keep it under 80f
