Its okay, I am heading to bed myself, I added to that post above what I think you should try. I personally think it just crashed at a bad moment and now the driver has/been corrupted. Removing the driver is your best bet, and attempt a re-install.

I needs my beauty sleep, I am sorry.

Stick with it, I don't quite think you need to buy anything yet, or send anything off to RMA.

I am sure someone here can help you get DriverSweeper up and running even though you only have access to SafeMode.

I was playing an extremely low demanding game on my GTX 590 (GTA:SA) I know, I'm quiet the gamer when it comes to hardcore graphics /endsarcasm. When both my monitors shut off, and my computer stops outputting sound. First, I check my card.. the 'GeForce' logo was no longer back lit.. but the fan of the card was still spinning. I did some googling and apparently the 590 blinks the light before it shuts off if there is a power problem. But, I kept playing thinking it was just a bug with the new 270.61 drivers. About an hour later, boom goes the monitors again.. same thing. I switched it my PC on again, about 5 minutes on the desktop it happened again. At this point, I decided I'd watch the card for any blinks. When it shuts off (only the card, the PC itself stays on) it does not blink, and the BCCode is 116, which I've also googled. At this point, I decided to roll my drivers back, in hope that that would fix it. Much to my dissapointment, it did not. In safe mode, the PC seems to be fine.. but at this stage, the card just turns off immediately after windows screen. I've tried re-seating, changing 8-pin connectors, re-connecting them, changing power plugs for the mains, downgrading drivers, updating and sweeping drivers. I should mention, my case is super clean, no overclocking has been done, and I've been using the card since release date with absolutely no problem. Please help.. :/

It wouldn't hurt to monitor temps and voltages of the card as mentioned, perhaps once we get you back in Windows. I was just sharing my experience with the power tripping + led logo disappearing as well. I knew what caused mine.

ASUS actually already released an updated video BIOS for the GTX 590. You can upgrade to that, it deals with a little voltage regulation issue. So you could begin by trouble shooting the obvious things. Also want to mention a lot of 270.61 driver users have been reporting issues with various cards, including the GTX 590. Try downgrading to 270.51?

Also, it would be good to ask does this issue happen with other games (not GTA:SA)?


I read all the thread, and it seems you only need to try and do a clean install of the drivers after using Driver Sweeper.

If that does not work, try updating the card's BIOS. I've had a problem with a Radeon HD6850 that would hard crash the PC in some games and the sound would get corrupted and play in a loop, and it turned out it was a voltage spike problem because of a faulty component. Some vendors like Gigabyte issued a Bios fix to try and correct the problem, others just accepted the fact it was unfixable and the cards should be RMA'd. The hardware problem has been fixed since. You may have gotten a card with a bad component. Maybe a Bios update fixes the problem, maybe not.

Third, have you tried another GPU ? I went to Newegg to check out your motherboard and the ratings are not very good.


If it turns out to be the card's fault, I would suggest you get two GTX 580's if you can afford them. They have better performance and far better VRM's. And while you're at it, get the 3GB versions. They will last you a lot longer.

SwiftFoX, I am sorry to hear about your problem as I am planning on buying an ASUS 590 GTX in the near future. However, I remember reading somewhere that for this card Nvidia recommends PSUs with 50A or more on a single +12v rail. From what I've seen, the amps on your Tagan PSU are split between six +12v rails in 20A/rail. I don't know if you've solved your problem by now (cause I can see these posts are three weeks old), but I think this was the reason your card was malfunctioning. Buying a similar PSU with 50A+ on a single +12v rail might just due the trick for you (such as the Corsair AX series).

A question for the rest of you guys: would the Corsair AX850 be enough for the 590 GTX? What do you think? I need to upgrade my PSU as well, so any advice would be great so I can avoid these problems!

Yep, more than enough.
