# 1 Video Card Driver Failure
01-29-2010, 03:40 PM
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Asus EAH5870 display device (1920x1080) with two displays
Intel I7 920
6 gigs ddr3 ram
Win7 64x

While playing STO I randomly and frequently have video card driver failures. This is the only game on my computer to experience such problems and started just prior to the head start.

For the sake of debugging I have reduced the resolution, disconnected the second display, changed between full screen, minimized and windowed full, reinstalled my display, motherboard and network drivers

by disabling AA and post processing the game seems to be much more stable

it would be easier to help you if you listed the video card.

Same issue with my 5850. I have an i7 860, 8GB DDR3, MSI P55-GD80, and a SilverStone 850.

Its not a driver failure, its a memory leak. A few of our guild have it too! Looks like the hole grafic card memory is gone away after a few zoning.

Asus EAH 5870

Asus produced it, EAH is the altered voltage tweak and 5870 is an ATI gpu... So I did. Google ftw, or I was too specific. At this point this issue is resolved

Disabling Post processing resolved the issue, I've played for four hours now with no failures all graphics maxed

Disabling PostProcessing didnt' resolve it for me. Yet again, my game just crashed on the Starbase 24 Away mission.
