    I recently bought a new gaming rig, here's the specs
    CPU: Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz Quad-Core
    Mobo: MSI B75MA-P45 Micro ATX LGA1155
    Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
    Storage: Samsung 840 Series 120GB 2.5" SSD, Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
    GFX: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB
    PSU: XFX 550W ATX12V / EPS12V

    When I made this computer, I receive audio stutters and computer freezes and displays a message display driver (nvidia driver version) has stopped responding and has recovered stuff. Then, I decided to update all my drivers to see if it would resolve such as, bios, in board sound, gfx drivers (320.49), network adapters and etc. As I did, the problem still consist but happens less now but without the display driver message (though it happens rarely now) and seems to mostly happen after playing games for more then 30 mintues or so. This happens until I manually reboot but I was still able to move around my computer (with the audio stutters and freezes of course) and I check my task manager to see that my CPU usage spikes up to 100% which is really strange because I do not play that high intensive games nor use programs that uses a lot of my comptuer too and my gfx/cpu should handle them too.
    Games I play are CSGO and LoL
    Also note that this does not occur almost at all when I browse through the web. I use firefox and chrome.
    I was curious if anyone knows what is wrong with my computer and any help would be nice :) total computer newb

    Hi Wicked,

    neat build you got there.. Reading through your post however I noticed your GPU driver isn't the latest release:
    NVIDIA DRIVERS 320.49WHQL

    I just wondered where you got your download from? Did you use an app to find the drivers for you? Let me know as i certainly point you in the right direction for the very latest drivers.

    What are your temps like? Freezing is often caused by high temperatures so it's worth checking. This app will allow you monitor both cpu and gpu:
    Open Hardware Monitor - Core temp, fan speed and voltages in a free software gadget

    I also updated some more drivers as requested from someone on tomshardware since he said it was something about a bus conflict but now I get more "display driver (version of nvidia driver) has stopped working and has successfully recovered" messages when gaming but when this appears, it black screens and puts my computer to normal and gets rid of the stuttering and computer freeze. Not sure if I should allow my gfx to do that but I am a computer newb.
    Also, typo on my part, was supposed to be 320.49 not 340.49 :p fixed though
    Sorry for the message spam :(
