Can anybody confirm if they get a weird crash during mission "Dark Waters". Its the mission where you follow "meeks". Once a cut scene loads up, my entire computer SHUTS OFF as if i have lost power in the house. Anybody else experiencing this??

This is happening with trainer and without trainer, so its not the trainer fault.

Sounds like something's overheating. I had a similar problem with Fallout 3. I could play the game for as long as I wanted, or just for 5 minutes, but my PC would always shut itself down during a specific conversation with an NPC. Turns out the game was throwing a lot of extra crap out during that particular conversation for some reason and my GPU was overheating.

If you can find a monitoring tool, run it while you're playing the game and keep an eye on the temperatures of your GPU and CPU (and others, just in case). Just put it up on a second monitor if you have one, or check the log after you've restarted, assuming it keeps them.

OK, one way around this is to "skip" the cut-scene. If anybody else experiences it....

Thanks, it is probably that.

This game is incredibly GPU intensive. Ludicrously and unneccesarily so... The Witcher 2 with Ubersampling is less intensive than this one in comparison.

Free monitoring tool: Link

Shows temperature, and allows you to change the speed of all your fans.

No not those fans, the ones in the PC.

Near as I can tell, most people experiencing issues or high usage is due to not having the latest NVIDIA beta drivers. (for NVIDIA users, anyway) Otherwise the game causes massive memory leaks such.

And just to help narrow down the cause of the issue (or pretty much any issue for any game, really) it is a good idea to use a program (or two, if they separate) that monitors GPU temperature and CPU temperature. Depending on how old your hardware is, "safe" operating temps can range from 75°C (on really, really old hardware) to 90-95°C. (on the newest stuff) If you're not hitting those temperatures then you shouldn't get any hard locks.

Most often this happens because the RAM voltage is wrong in BIOS, by default BIOS tends to overvolt the RAM. So check what voltage your RAM should have, then make sure it is set to that in BIOS.

Im using Beta Drivers from Nvidia and I could follow Meeks etc.

Probably people overclocking maybes? And it just went over the top on specific scenes?
