280.26 errors I've noticed so far. - Page 4

post #31 of 51
Yeah, that happened to me as well and adding more voltage fixed the issue, I love the newest drivers and yes I prefer it doing that because it lets me know if my oc is unstable and I can add a little more juice and the problem goes away!

I noticed my computer lags with these new drivers when I have my gpu folding client running in the backround. Also, although WEI is not a reputable way to gauge performance, upon reassessing my score went from 7.7 to 5.9, somethings up with these drivers...

Fairly certain after reading through the posts here that the 280.66 drivers caused massive system instability for me. I just built this PC this summer and it's been running like a dream up until the past week or so after installing the drivers. Now my system randomly freezes up, no matter what I'm doing- whether idle or gaming or just browsing the internet the system will hang, become unresponsive, and all I can do is reset manually via my PC's power button. At first I was getting the "graphics driver has failed and been successfully restarted" messages quite frequently but then I stopped getting them at all and the freezing started. Very frustrating now though because a revert to 275 drivers didn't seem to have eliminated the issue... Still crashing at random.

Not quite sure what to do from here... Any ideas? I hear about adding voltage but honestly I'm a bit new to OC'ing and the like... I built my machine but I'm normally just content to go with manufacturer defaults and not risk instability for minimal performance benefits.

Start off with everything at stock clocks.

Then make sure drivers are all upto date, check for any bios updates.

People often overlook a bios update as a fix, but there have been a few occasions its made a huge difference to my system. For example, when I got my 570s they were shipped with not enough vcore so I got crashing problems. The update increased that some, and it fixed the issue.

1.) How do I ensure my card is at/reset it to stock clocks?
2.) BIOS Update for my motherboard? An update will automatically up voltage to my card? Explain?

Sorry for the noob questions, I just want to make sure I understand this clearly. I've heard a lot of talk about adding voltage to a card to make it more stable, or how the drivers have messed with voltage, but it's all a bit confusing and I'm not sure if what's being referred to are the in-bios options for messing with CPU clock and such.

Like I said, I haven't done much work with overclocking so I'm a bit in over my head.

For that particular problem, it's most likely graphics card related if your not getting any other problems. Are you getting any other blue screen crashes?

If it's just that one problem on your system, then you need to get onto the EVGA forums and ask them to clarify the correct voltage for your card and they will provide a bios update if there is one.

The important part though, is whether your system is stable apart from the display driver errors you have been getting.

Small measures for now, go into the 280.26 nvidia control panel and change the power control from adaptive to prefer maximum performance. That may resolve the problem, as it has for many people.

All these 280.26 drivers have done is highlight an already present instability with factory overclocked cards. They tend to change p-states aggressively. What this does is control the clock speed and voltage depending on the work load. If the voltage isn't quite set right on the card, it will cause a crash.

The drivers seem to be fine for stock clocked cards.

You could always get MSI Afterburner (free program) and lower the cards clocks down to that of a reference non-overclock version. If it then becomes stable, get onto EVGA.

running Zotac 560 ti OC, 280.26 drivers. got back to back driver stopped responding errors for the last two days. Today I came back only to find my screen locked at 1024x768 without ability to change, my monitor got locked to non pnp mode. Restarted, got bsod. Restarted again, monitor still recognized as non-pnp with max resolution 1280x768. Tried uninstalling the monitor in device manager, no dice. Uninstalled and rolled back to 275.33 finally fixes it. This only occured in Win7 Ultimate 64, XP had no issues

I am having the same damn problem on my new setup. I installed 280.26 today and it froze on me twice in one day I just got this PC yesterday. I guess I should roll down to an earlier set cause this is annoying

Here's the official response I got from nVidia after a submitting feedback through official channels and not just forum moaning.

Quote:
Hello,

Thank you for your bug submission. I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. This issue is likely related to a few reports of stability issue we are currently investigating with the 280.xx driver. The symptom is random and started with the 280.xx drivers. We have been able to isolate this to some possible driver change introduced to the 280.xx driver and those have been fixed. My suggestion is to use the 275.xx driver for now and wait for the up-coming 285.xx driver. The fact that the problem does not occur with the 275.33 driver suggest it's likely the same stability issue. The 285.xx driver has a fix for the stability issue and that should help with the problem. We are targeting 285 release before the end of this month but beta should be sooner. Please check back in our beta driver section in about 1-2 weeks for the 285.xx beta here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us. If all goes well the beta should be posted by then if not sooner.


Best regards,
NVIDIA Customer Care

Info: Brand new build, no OC, no folding, no anything.

The 280.26 driver is the most astonishingly **** driver I have used in years. This driver brings me back to a decade ago when a daily bluescreen was merely expected.

This driver crashes when I browse the internet using Firefox. No joke, when I browse using Firefox. Nothing is going on graphically. It'll crash, recover and then do it again a few minutes later.

It'll also crash the second I start Team Fortress 2, recover (but not before disabling AA and making my game look like ****) then crash again, finally freezing the game beyond recovery.

I think perhaps Nvidia deserves to be congratulated on creating something so beyond the pale worthless.
