Civ V Crashing along with my Graphics Card


Apr 11, 2015
So this has been going on since I got the game, but only recently became a constant issue.

I have BNW if that matters, though this has happened since I only had G&K. Basically I will be playing Civ V, and with no reason or warning, the game will go black and crash. An interesting thing about it is that my entire graphics card crashes; I can tell because the fans all die. I checked to see if this was due to overheating, but with the fans on, the temperatures are rarely too high. And this also happens only on Civ, and not on for more demanding games.

I have a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 550 Ti with 2 gb RAM (Outdated, I know), but like I said this ins't a problem I have with other games.

I have the notepad crash reports, but it is just a really long bunch of symbols so I don't know what to look for in it.

It is nearly impossibly to play Civ when this keeps happening, so I'd appreciate any help. i can supply the crash reports or more specs if that helps. Thanks in advance.
