Graphics Driver Fails: Making Skyrim unplayable
Skyrim, when out in the open areas it seems, CONSTANTLY causes my graphics card drivers to fail.
Screen will freeze, flicker and eventually come back. This happens a few times, or sometimes not at all, until the screen freezes, everything goes black and the game crashes entirely. This also happens with fallout 3 and fallout new vegas (much more so with new vegas) and not at all with any other graphically intense 3D game (planetside 2 and League of Legends all work fine).
Ive updated graphics drivers, tried to boot game in other compatibility modes, tweaked audio settings and some other things all to no avail. Starting a new character/game I am able to get through the first main dungeon. But as soon as i get to the first dragon battle.....it becomes unplayable. Freezing, crashing....forever.
The rage in my body.....it builds. Havent been able to play any of the games that use this graphics engine.... pls, halp me.
