Black Screen (Driver Crash) discussion cont.

Technical Support
mine is fixed gforce 9500gt

download Rivatuner and lower the clockspeed of the card
changed mine from 700 to 600 and now i can run without a max fps and b4 i had constant driver crashes

found a topic on this forum but i cant find it back :/

hope tis helps u out

yesterday when i fired up diablo i had troubles again .....
seems that the rivatuner doesnt save the onderclocking but when did it again,
ran smooth like silk ........

i know this aint a sollution but now i can play without getting the blackscreens all the time

I'd really like to enjoy the game I paid for without wondering if my computer is slowly killing itself with every black screen + cold boot

I get a display driver crash when I try to change areas, or if I die and try to revive. I have tried changing all sorts of AA settings in inspector, 2x2 SGSSAA doesn't even work, so I moved down to 4xMSAA, but it still crashes.

Tried using SLI Compatibility bits 0x02500005, but still crashed.

I have no issues in any other games.

I'm having that problem for some few days, at first i thought its an overheat or something, but i tracked my graphic card by using MSI Afterburner and no overheat occurred.

Sticky please, Blizzard we need a solution asap!
Wish they wouldn't have put a limit on the original thread, I guess if it got up to a 1,000 plus posts it would look bad. There was patch this AM, I wonder if it fixed it. My wife has this issue but on my TV computer that is the EXACT SAME MACHINE but running Windows 8 instead of 7 there isn't an issue. My wife doesn't want to install Windows 8 though and will just wait for Blizz to fix.
I have this issue and my GPU is always nice and cool - the "heat monitoring" advice posted by Blizzard above is silly. I hope they are just stalling - because otherwise they are completely clueless.

This has nothing to do with heat, or hardware, or drivers. It's just a game that was released without being properly tested. Suckers.

Same problem.

Bump, haven't been able to find a response on this yet. Anyone got a fix?

My issues startet after i updatet my BIOS yesterday, uptill then i have had no black screen or crash issues at all. (Only while playing D3) other games work like a charm.

After reading loads of post's i cant help to wonder if the issue is a mainboard issue (from gameside ofc..) Its really acting as if the game is getting the MB to shut down the GPU slot for a second or two cause my screen is acting like its loosing the signal for a tiny bit and then resumes..

Really hope this will get fixed asap cause its almost impossible to farm anything...
I can play for a few hours or a few seconds but this will happen. Screen goes black and power button goes orange like it has no signal and the sound on diablo 3 loops but itunes will stop after the current song finishes. At this point it's frozen; no keyboard response or mouse and the power button can't be pushed once to shut the comp down. Only thing I can do is hold the power button and reboot. This only happened once in a while, say 1-3 times in a a day. Now it happens within 2-3 mins of me getting into the actual game. Ive never had a problem in the AH. I know its not heat it's only at 45C when in Diablo 3 and i have the latest drivers. I played Skyrim at 60C for an hour to test that. Please help.

It's seems that moving shadows from high to anything lower helps a bit and the checking the low fx button helps even more than that.
Game crashed today. Had to completely shutdown the PC for a few seconds.

have tried multiple driver versions

haven't played D3 in a while, but this has been ongoing for over a month in WoW. Right about the time they introduced cross realm zones. I have installed win7 and WoW onto separate SSDs from what I was playing on, left driver at original version. No problems for a while and back to crashing. Extremely frustrating. Im pretty sure it has to do with something on blizzards end, though I could be wrong. Have reseated GPU, have rolled back GPU driver, installed various versions and nothing fixes it. Seems completely random as to when it crashes. Usually more so later in the day, but could be coincidence.

Please tell me someone has found a fix or solution...

Someone mentioned a BIOS update had apparently fixed it, I might try that next... however I hate doing them, so if someone else has found a better solution let me know please
Just lost a hardcore character to this...-_-
