Everytime I play Diablo 3, all it´s ok for about 30 minutes, and suddenly, the screen turns black, the audio stucks and the machine reboots.
Memtest86plus is Ok. 10passes without an issue...

My video card is an elitegroup GT240 512Mb GDDR5

Any help or suggestion??

i get the same thing.

had old drivers before and after patch 1.04 i started getting random BSOD's nothing to bad maybe once to three times in a week, after last patch with the game it started crashing after 2-3 minutes in a game.

so i updated my drivers (clean install) so it removed all saved settings and so on. at first it seemed to work, i did 2 runs without any problems. but the last 2 days im still getting random BSOD's, i can generally say when they are about to occur though, first i get some minor lag issues, graphics having a hard time to keep up with the game, and then after a little while i get BSOD.

Baronmad,

What you have is a 'TDR' error.

I'd like to direct you to a thread on Nvidia's forums that has a detailed description of this issue along with quite a few user-supplied possible remedies.
