Gtx 460 bsod

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I recently became a new member of OCN due to your helpful forums and news.
I've had my computer for about 1.5-2 years and it was working fine all along. About a week ago I reinstalled windows (from win7 to win7, just as a clean up), and now I'm having issues with supposedly my video card (GTX 460), my computer seems to BSOD at random times (the computer doesn't freeze or flicker or anything of that sort, I get no warning at all, my screen just randomly displays the blue screen and the computer restarts) and this past week I went 4 crashes in 4 days...I know the card is the problem because I had help in analysing my BSOD dump files.
I've installed new drivers using driver sweeper, so I'm pretty sure thats not a problem, I've cleaned the card physically (of course being really careful not to mess it up).
I know for a fact that its not overheating because I monitor my card's temperature with MSI Afterburner. Putting it under stress doesn't cause the BSOD (again because its not overheating). The crashes are as random as clicking the firefox button or playing a game for a long period of time without lag or stuttering.

I ran out of options...searching for similar problems gave me no luck as I couldn't find a similar problem in the first place.

Hopefully someone can fix my problem.

I've included my dump file if someone decides to analyse it.

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.

Run memtest. If it happens as random as opening firefox, that may be the issue.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll be sure to run it.

The BSOD's you're getting is related to your graphics driver (0x01). Use driver sweeper and uninstall your nVidia drivers for your GTX 460 and install the most stable version which is this one:

I ran a memtest which gave me no errors, and proceeded to reinstalling drivers following your instructions EpicPie...now I can only wait and see if this works or not.

Thanks for the help and ideas.

Although my comp hasnt BSOD yet...the older drivers are causing CoD 2 to freeze up every time I play.
Is there a way to get around that?
