Black Screen (Driver Crash) discussion cont.

Technical Support
Hey, did your screen go black and you have to cold reboot or did it just freeze, but you could still close it and keep your computer running?
It's happening on my computer too... a 2.66ghz Core 2 Quad with 8gb Ram, Radeon 6950, Intel MB, 550w Antec True Power, Arctic silver 5 on the factory cooler for the Radeon and on a huge Cooler Master fan on the CPU. Bios options are defaults, temps are good, latest drivers everywhere, Win7 64bits...

It didn't happend on the Laptop so far, it's a Toshiba Satellite Core I7 with 8gb Ram and a NVidia 540M...

Happens on and off but I die every time it happens which makes me not even want to play the game anymore
NVIDIA GTS 250 with latest drivers
16 gb ram
intel core i7 3.07 ghz 8 core
Windows 7 64bit,
Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti,
8gb ram,
intel i5.

Happens all the time, tried every workaround found here and there.
Either black screen crash with windows message about graphics drivers restarted, either complete shutdown of the computer.
Has a solution been found since ?
Many thanks
Just to add to others....

My i5 Intel 4000 Graphics Laptop plays D3 flawlessly and gets VERY hot, but my quadcore rig with a 9800GTX fails every few mins.....

And still no real reasons for this or help from Blizzard? If I did not have my laptop I would have stopped playing as I refuse to shell out on another graphics card with no assurance that it will change anything, as we don't really know what the issue is!

Pity as Diablo 3 is such a good game....
My laptop will run this as well, but my desktop whos specs are much better will not. Annoying
How is this still hapenning?? 2 years now and still crashing this makes no sense!!

I've got GeForce 570GTX 16GB RAM and an AMD6 3.4 And I ONLY PLAY HARDCORE...

The ONLY other game that does this is PayDay2 but the game doesnt even boot properly so I doubt it is related.

This makes no sense to me. I can't belive all the chars I've lost to this stupid glitch.

On antoher unrelated note : I love this game.
Just to add my 2 cent to this necro'd thread...ever since patch 2.2 (or whichever one reconfigured the D3 file schema) my screen has been randomly flashing as well and only during or immediately after I play D3.

I've been trying to troubleshoot the problem for the past 2 hours and just saw this thread. Anybody else having this issue?
