    Here is what happens every 10, 5, 30, 90, 200 or 2 minutes:

    I then need to send the comp into stand-by by closing the lid and revive it. This usually works, but sometimes (1 case in 7) not just screen crashes but entire comp and I have to hard-reset it.


    Compaq V6065ea
    Turion X2 2Ghz
    GF Go6150
    4GB Ram

    It happens only in Windows 7 x64. It does not happen in XP x64 or Linux x64.
    I tried 4 different nvidia drivers (modded and not, newest and from 2008) and drivers form Windows Update - made no difference.
    I reinstalled system on freshly formated drive trice, with different 7 releases.
    It usually happens when the CPU is barely used (but then again, it's like this most of the time).

    If I can't solve it, I will have to go back to XP 64 where I have to sacrifice 1GB of ram to enable hibernation and most modern antivirus programs do not work.

    Try directx update.

    Also try disabling the aero theme in windows 7.

    When you try different drivers do you totally remove the old ones?

    I think what that other guy said was that it happened to him before as well but it was his RAM. IDK for sure, looks like a video card issue if you ask me.

    I think its overheating of the GPU.

    I had an ATI x1800 mobility in my laptop, it did exactly as OP had done but its the fact it works ok in XP and only 7 throws up the problem.

    Maybe the extra fancy stuff in the 7 GUI just puts the temp up enough.


    Dude download and install CPUID's HWMonitor and give us a screenshot of it plz to we see your temps.
