As the title says, I can play Skyrim for about 3 minutes before my monitor goes black and 5 or 6 seconds later my sound cuts out. At this point I am forced to restart my computer.
Now, I know what you are thinking, and yes, I updated the drivers after the first crash, happened 2 more times after that. I was poking around on bethesda's forums and noticed that someone said that if you download DirectX 9.0c directly from Microsoft it would fix your problem. So I went ahead and did that, which allowed me to play just up past character creation before the black screen of death hit me.
I am at a total loss on what to do. I am pretty sure I should just wait for a fix, seeing as how RAGE and Brink seemed to go through the same "release now/patch later" phase.
But, if anyone is able to offer any sort of solution, or some weird tech tweak/fix, that would be most appreciated.
I am running:
Intel i7 960 3.20ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6800 1GB
