Hopefully someone can give me some idea as to what is causing this problem while I wait for CyberPower to open for the day.
Yesterday, I opened the WoW launcher and ran to the kitchen, came back and I had a pink screen. First time this has happened - couldn't alt-tab or control-alt-delete so I shut down my computer. Checked all the cables to make sure they were plugged in properly and they were. Booted my computer up, started WoW again and played for a bit. WoW disappears and I get this error - NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver 2xx.xx has stopped working but recovered. Checked to see if my graphics driver needed an updated, and it did to version 301.42. Got that downloaded and installed, rebooted, played WoW some more and it happened again - once with the driver crashing but recovering, played some more and then I got the pink screen again.
I've had this computer for just over a year.
CPU: Intel core i5-2500k 3.30 GHz 6M Intel Smart Cache
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD
Memory: 8GB (2GBx4) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory Module
Motherboard: [CrossFirexX] GigiByte GA-H67M-D2-B3 Intel H67 Chipset DDR3 mATX Mainboard w/ 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 2x SAtA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe & 2 PCIe X1 [B3 Stepping]
OS: Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit
Power Supply: 750 Watts - Coursair CMPSU-750TX 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1.2GB 16X PCIe Video Card (EVGA brand)
Now, before all of this started happening...pretty much ever since I got the computer, whenever Windows would have an update or a driver would update and my computer would restart itself, the BIOS would pop up saying my computer was over heating @ about 206 F. I felt around my computer and I couldn't feel any heat coming off of it. I figured my computer was just being silly or something. I hope I wasn't being naive about a serious problem.
I rolled back my computer last night but I haven't gotten the chance to test it out to see if the problem is solved, but I am assuming it's not. Currently at work right now so if any other information is needed about my computer I'll have to get it in a couple of hours.
I would appreciated any help!
