FRAPS Cause Crash

3971 Views 4 Posts PC Software
Hey Guys,

As you may know from my previous threads I thought my new graphics card was faulty. I've been using it for over 24 hours and it was working fine....until I used FRAPS.

I was making a video in DC Online when it happened. I was also doing this the first time when I installed my new card...so now I'm thinking it wasn't the card at all but in actual fact FRAPS.

I just tried playing DC Online without FRAPS recording and no shut downs....as soon as I start recording a few minutes later....BINGO system shut down.

Any ideas?
Not sure but thinking back, when I was playing BC2 using FRAPs I had a PC crash also. I havent used it since though so I cannot say for sure it was FRAPs, but I hadn't had any crashes mid game before or after...
Are you able to run FRAPS on any other games with your new GPU?
Did you upgrade your PSU?
