The progressive failure you described in your first post doesn't seem like a driver incompatibility to me.

That's what I thought initially too, but it would seem like a physical/hardware issue, but I can't think of why it would be displayed by windows as a driver failure. I guess maybe it could be a video card BIOS issue because of faulty rom.

It might be over heating or defective. My gt420m did that and had to send my laptop back as it was a defect in the bored. After a while it would just over heat and kick my laptop off.

Well unless the temp sensor is also faulty, it's not a heat issue. I monitor the temp and it always stays nice and cool.

It can't hurt to call...

Formatting and reinstalling can take hours. Calling takes minutes.

As I said, already did. Though not for that purpose. It did nothing for the crashing issue.

Takes me under an hour to have all needed software and games back on. I made a windows network back up of a fresh install of both my pcs when i got them with only windows default drivers installed and most of the software i would need that can auto update like steam, chrome, flash, ect. Have any game like BF:BC2, L4D2, Witcher 2 backed up on nas.

Just run, copy some files, and update drivers.

I see the servers, but when I click join, I get a pop up that asks to check release date.
