On Sunday night, I was playing various games with my newly built PC. Everything was running perfectly fine - on Monday night, I noticed that a new driver update was available for my graphics card, after installation, I continued to game. Now multiple games that are run through full screen immediately crash my pc, basically looks like a frozen screen. The game takes up about half of the screen, and the background behind the game is still active and moving, has notifications. I cannot do anything other than hit my windows key and restart my pc so it will go away. Can anyone please help me? I had to change the game config for League of Legends to get the actual game to load after you select the characters. I changed it so the game will automatically boot in windowed mode after you select your character. Then, I can change my screen resolution and make it fit my entire screen, but I cannot change it to fullscreen, other wise it will crash.

Sounds like you should remove the existing graphics driver? You dont say what OS you are using, but if it's Windows 10 then stop it from downloading drivers and only get them from the manufacturers site AND NOT FROM WINDOWS.


Please go HERE and download the portable version of Speccy. Save it to somewhere you can find, locate the file and as it comes as a Zip file use your favorite unzip application to decompress it. Open the newly created folder and double left click Speccy.exe if you have a 32 bit system or Speccy64.exe if yours is 64bit. If you are not sure what your system is click HERE. This guide compiled by Gus.




Speccy will open and after a short wait will display a summary of your system specs.


  1. Click on the file menu.
  2. Then click Publish snapshot.




A dialogue box will ask you to confirm, select yes.




Another dialogue box will open


  1. Click Copy to Clipboard.
  2. Then click Close.




Now that your link has been copied please paste it into your next post. It should look something like the example below:)

BTW: once you have finished with speccy and no longer want it removing it is easy because it is a portable app with no install. Simply delete the downloaded file and folder you created when you decompressed it. Gone:thumbsup:
