With NVIDIA Surround and dual GeForce GTX 570s, I crash games that are rated A after about 10 minutes. (For example: Alan Wake)

Here's the minidump and a bunch of other diagnostic info:

Any ideas?

Here’s the mail I got recently who fixed my problem permanently

Thank you for reaching out to Community Forums.

1. Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
2. What is the model number of the device?

Here are a few methods which you can follow to resolve the issue:

Method 1:
Disconnect all external devices (except mouse and keyboard) and check if issue persists.

Method 2:
Run the Hardware and devices troubleshooter and check.
a. Open Search by swiping in from the right edge of the screen (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen and moving the mouse pointer down), and then tapping or clicking Search.
b. Type Troubleshooting and click Troubleshooting under Settings.
c. Now type Hardware Troubleshooter in the search option.
d. Click on Hardware troubleshooter to run the troubleshooter.

Method 3:
Update the keyboard drivers.
a. From desktop screen, press Windows key + X
b. Select device manager.
c. Double click keyboards.
d. Right click on the keyboard device shown.
e. Select Update Driver Software.
f. Select search automatically for updated driver software.


Hope this resolves the issue.

Sorry Kinjo your asking on the wrong site, if you want help with bugs / crashes related to a driver, you need to contact the driver manufacture, in this case Atheros (working on the assumption your pulling athw8x.sys from the BOS message and not a random forum), as athw8x.sys is the windows 8 version of their wireless driver. If there is an answer to your problem it's on Google.

Also side note, please don't necro 4 year old dead threads.
