I am having really annoying issues on Windows 8 (64 bit) I want to share. And if possible I would like to hear some possible fix for these errors. Any help would be great.
So I upgraded my computer to Windows 8 (64 bit) recently. Everything was fine at first. Then things got worse and worse everyday. I have Nvidia G460 GTX video card fyi. I installed latest drivers, even beta ones just hoping it to fix the problem. But nothing helped.
First problem I had was WoW stops responding for couple of secs, and screen goes black during this time and everything goes back normal. Sometimes this issue ends up with this error on desktop saying on right lower corner that "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". So normally I thought this was Nvidia's driver issue. I was using normal Nvidia drivers but then decided to try beta drivers for a possible fix. But it didn't help.
Then I google'd a lot about the problem I am having, all I found was nothing really. All possible fixies I found didn't change anything.
- Uninstalling Nvidia drivers and using windows 8 drivers
- 32 bit WoW Client
- DirectX 9
- Full Screen Mode
- Windowed Full Screen Mode
- etc etc
Nothing really fixed the problem for me. Instead, my problem got worse. Now, I am getting;
-This all random Windows 8 freezes. This happens only when I run WoW. And I need to restart my computer.
- Sometimes my mouse cursor goes invisible randomly. Even I exit WoW, cursor remains invisible on desktop.
- Sometimes WoW keeps skipping. By that I mean, It freezes for 3-4 secs then everthing goes back to normal fps for like 1 sec then it goes freezing again, etc etc... I cant control computer during this freeze time. But I can use my keyboard for Alt+F4 during that "normal" 1 sec time to quit WoW. When I relog after Alt+F4, WoW keeps doing the same "freeze loop".
My computer spec
Gigabyte H55M-S2 motherboard
Intel I3 3.2Ghz
Nvidia N460 GTX
FYI, WoW was running just fine on my previous Windows 7 (32 Bit). Never had any issues at all.
Thanks for reading and for all replies.
