Update video drivers.
This is almost always the problem.

If that doesn't solve it, move to chipset drivers and audio drivers.


And never let Windows update your drivers through Windows update.


Oh crap I just did that.

Try checking your video drivers, use the latest version. Or in the case of nVidia, use the 314 version since we know those are stable.

The windows versions are always bad, but I have had it install older versions of the drivers on me, and in some cases wreck them entirely as it copied the DLL files, but didn't update the applications with it.

Check your PC for dust on the inside. That can cause your computer to overheat and crash.

I think if you always do it, your fine since you will still progress forward in versions. It's only when windows update tries to install an older version that you have trouble.

It also doesn't seem to affect AMD like it does nVidia. I can only guess that is because nVidia has accompanying applications that inject extra functionality, whereas Catalyst is actually optional, you can just right click the INF file for the AMD drivers and choose install and be done with it. (however, I haven't done this for 2 years, a lot may have changed)
