    Check if the card is good in the slot check of latest drivers and maybe it died...

    Try updating your drivers first.
    Nvidia drivers and your direct x, looks like your using an old version.

    Did you try updating even if you have the latest drivers? I think your card might be shot, did you OC it?

    overclocking is actualy "boosting" your graphicscard to a higher level. you can buy overclocked cards in shops but they cost more. or you can do it yourself but i can damage/destroy your card so be carfull

    do other games work?

    Idk, I get some weird things like that in games.
    Example:
    Hosted by BTL StudiosLatest Xtreme's video crash.
    Edit: My graphic card is plugged in very well, when I close the app it freezes the whole pc.

    Try replacing the graphicscard with an old one/putting the card in a other pc. if the other card has the same problem then its your pc and not the card. my advise: dont go to a shop to ask if they could look at it becouse they will say its broken and they will let you buy a more expensive one
