    Hello forums,

    I just got back from my friend's computer issues. He plays AION and before every couple minutes of so after starting the game the drivers crash as well as recover. I recommended him to update to 13.1 (sounded like a good idea at the time) and now its the same thing but with the addition of a BSOD.

    I have checked online and found people with a relevant issue but I just want to confirm it however, if possible, find a solution in the process.

    Has anyone owned an HD 6970, played AION, and crashed their computer playing it?

    What does the bsod say? Does it only happen with aion?

    Edit: what are the system specifications? Motherboard, memory, powersupply and CPU. what version of windows is he running?

    Yes, and as for the BSOD it presented drivers.

    As for this build, I built it myself:

    i7 930/stock cooled
    ASUS P6T SE Motherboard
    Corsasir 1600 MHz Vengeance 24GB Kit
    NZXT 850W PSU
    ASUS DirectCU 2 HD 6970
