GTX 465: screen flickering, BSOD's and related

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been having some issues with my computer for a while, and I'm positive it's related to my GPU.

1. I get very occasional BSOD's, only triggered by a graphical event, which may even just be a video playing, or a more demanding game. Usually only happens which I move and re-setup my rig. Then I'll have 2-3 BSOD's in a row, and then everything is fine until I take it apart again. However, I also just had a BSOD when playing Civ 5, and another GPU driver crash, prompting this post..

2. I sometimes have situations in full-screen games, where I get some horizontal flickering (all the way across the screen) about 1/3 up from the bottom of my monitor. It's not incredibly noticeable, but definitely there, and could be indicative.

3. Occasionally my graphics driver crashes, at least according to Windows. It's an "unresolved issue", and Windows won't tell me anything more about it.

Things that are not an issue:
1. Temps. Everything is normal.
2. Drivers. I am always updated.

Another thing is that I did have some similar issue with this with my previous GPU, a GTX 260, suggesting it could really be a motherboard problem? I really don't know though.

Would appreciate any help!

Best thing to do is to downgrade your drivers to a previous stable release.

That seems to be the only reason why you'd be getting problems.

The issue is, it's never really been stable for me, for the past year.

Do you have the cards overclocked at all? I'm using 266.58 drivers. They have the been the only ones that work for me.
