Sadly this isn't the first time I have to write a similar post. Over the last 36 hours I have suffered with games blacking out, driver display errors & blue screen crash dumps. I can function on Intel graphics but not my g card all of a sudden. My rig is AW17 r5, I use windows 7. I have a nvidia 880m card and I allow the Geo force experience client select the best optimization for the games I play, So this means high settings plus. The games I like to play are not graphically demanding - WoW, WoT and FFxiv ( admitedly is more demanding but i havent played since I got it back from AW engineers in January with an identical problem). The previous history In the last 10 months is this happened In October last year and January this year. I really look after my machine. Dust free, wiped down regulary and correctly, It remains on the same wooden table which doesn't get hot. It's not left In direct sunlight. The fact this is now the 3rd time this has happened makes me wonder if I am doing something wrong. The last fix was resolved with replacing the mother board, GPU & CPU. In that time it has been fine. I have been playing WoW and WoT exclusively in that time on high setting graphics with no issues. I have also watched a couple of movies too. No issues. Then mid game (WoW) it failed. I am at a loss to understand why is this cycle is repeating. I am losing all confidence with my machine and the Brand. Any suggestions?
