ATI Mobility HD 5470 / BluescreenOD
Ok a year ago when I heavily played GW on my older desktop with a Geforce 8600GT I randomly got BSOD while playing GW. Sometimes 5 minutes after game play sometimes after a few hours. After many tests and trials it was obvious it was the graphics card / drivers not agreeing with GW1. I had no problems with anything but GW1. I changed back to older factory graphics drivers and voila no more problems and continue to enjoy GW1 but was stuck with older drivers as if I updated them at all, the game was no longer playable.
So its about a year later I got a new laptop with ATI Mobility HD5470 which has no problems running 3 eve clients on max, or with high end games or running anything else. I decided to try and get my last point for my gw2 rewards im at 29/50, I log in and run around an outpost for a while and then BSOD.....very similar to my old computer and the 8600GT.
Now I looked up the 8600GT last year and found alot of people having problems with GW1 with that specific graphics card. I can't find many topics about the HD5470. Is there something in GW1 that just doesn't like certain cards and drivers? Its only GW1 that the problem occurs.
I am also worried that these issues will continue onto GW2 with certain cards causing BSOD issues that never get resolved.....
