I recently bought a G53S series laptop for gaming, only issue is, I keep crashing whenever I play anything decent for games.
The games look great and stream rather well on ultra or w/e settings, but whatever little time I play in the game.
I get a black screen my laptop freezes and makes a rather annoying sound, eventually resetting itself.

Any sort of feed back would be helpful.

Sounds like an overheating issue. Have you monitored your temps? If all temps are fine then it could be a driver issue. Make sure you have the newest nvidia driver installed. The newest one is 301.42

I've not measured my temps, since the fans do not feel anywhere near hot enough to seem like a problem.
I just installed both drivers fresh in safe mode, 304.79, 301.42 but to no avail...

You can download a free program called HWmonitor. It monitors your CPU, GPU, HD, and Motherboard Temps. Use that the next time you play a game and let me know what you get for gpu and cpu.

Try the nVidia 306.02 BETA version to see if it resolves your issue.

Good idea. Try downloading one of nVidia's demos to make sure that they crash too. If they don't, it is something with the game.

I have tried the 306.02 driver, but it says is isn't compatible with my geforce gtx vid card.
as for the game being a problem, multiple games do crash not just 1 or 2, hell even never winter nights 2 crashes.

Here are my temps for when running something i know will crash

I have tried the 306.02 driver, but it says is isn't compatible with my geforce gtx vid card.

It's strange that it wasn't compatible if your laptop has an "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M (1.5GB GDDR5 VRAM)".
I just checked on the nVidia download site, and it says it's compatible with your GPU card.

By the way, there's already the nVidia 306.23 WHQL version. I'm currently downloading it.
You might give it a shot, too..

I have the same issue when i try to install 306.23 as well, says it isnt compatible.
I think i shall return it for the warranty as i think it is most likely a hardware issue instead of software.

Thank you sirs, for the assist.

Sorry,.. for being a little insistent here. But is it the laptop version of the nVidia driver
you're downloading? Considering your GPU model, your GeForce GTX 460M should have
the same compatibility with my 560M. Compatibility issues normally occur
when a desktop nVidia driver was mis-downloaded instead of the laptop one.

Try this:http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/48693

Also, may I ask how you install your nVidia drivers. Do you install a new driver on top
of the current? I hope you're doing a "clean install" of the driver instead of the former.

Insistence is quite a good thing, I shall try again with this link, anything I can do to save myself a 45 min trip to town. I shall update further if it is a success or not.

I had picked the wrong driver for my laptop initially. However it seems as thou i get the same problem with this newer one as well.
Crashes after 2-5 min and goes black.

Can you tell me please from where I can get the drivers of TTP-2410M Pro TSC (http://www.boompack.com/en/product/ttp-244m-pro-series-tsc-industrial-bar-code-printer-2/)
