Hey,

I'm having a problem when playing certain videogames.
The one's I know who have this problem for sure are Mass effect, Mass effect 2 and batman Arkam asylum. I googled it for all 3 games and there were a few other people with same problem, but no clear solution for the problem.
When I play one of the games at random moments it just goes black, I can only hear the music in the background but there is no further interaction possible so if the screen is black and I would run around you won't hear the footsteps anymore only the background so no interaction. I can't go back to desktop or ctrl-alt-del I need to reboot the hard way.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post a DirectX log please?
To create a dxdiag log, go to Start, click on Run, then type in dxdiag and press Enter. Click on Save All Information as a text file and attach it to a post here.

You're certainly missing some DX extensions

Try installing the full installer  105MB

If that doesn't have all the extensions you need then you'll have to add the SDK  (500MB!)

I'm assuming you've got all the updates for drivers covered already but if no install the DirectX update first then the driver.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Redcue your graphics settings and see if it continues - if so the next thing to do is look at your system temps
