I Think my GTX 460 Is Dieing :( Need Help

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi OCN, some bad bad news today, recently I've been playing BF3, I Got the new drivers etc and now every now and again, the Nvidia Drivers crash.
I Know the drivers are in beta, but its just scary you know.
The card isin't overclocked, or under voltaged. I NEVER have any artifacting even when running at 99% for hours on end.
The card hits a maximum of 72c, never over. I Just don't know what to do!
I was hoping to give the card to a friend for his rig when i get my GTX 580 soon, but if its gonna break on him then its not gonna be any good.

Any suggestions on what to do. I Need to stay on the Beta drivers, so i can play BF3 well, Could it be just the drivers, thanks for any help, best help will get +rep

Thanks!

It is indeed the drivers your card is fine i been hearing this froma couple nvidia users.

If you need to prove it to yourself down load a gpu stress tester like furmark and run for 5 -10 mins if it dosent crash then youll know for sure

Good Luck

Best way to check this IMO, would be to run the OCCT GPU Stress test at default settings. Its rough on the card and if your GPU is unstable at stock settings, then it will likely show up soon.

Run it for like 180-240 seconds and make sure error checking is on. If 0 errors come up, your fine and its driver related.

Just don't get into a habit of running this program long term on a card. You WILL ruin it, a couple minutes on the other hand are perfect for knowing if your card is in good shape.

My gut feeling is that your card is fine, especially if 72C is the hottest it ever gets.

I Have Furmark, dont have artifacts or problems on that either, neither 3DMARK11 so, it must just be drivers.
Silly Nvidia, +rep for you guys!

I honestly never developed an eye for furmark. i think people that use it as a stability test really have no idea what stable on their card(s) actually is.

I have tested OCCT stable and OCCT extremely unstable (> 10,000 errors reported in a very short duration, and Furmark looked exactly the same in both cases. It typically took running far away from anything close to stable in terms of voltage/clock speed to actually see artifacts clearly.

If anything has any input about furmark though, I'm all ears. =D

There have actually been a few reports of the newer drivers causing BSODs so don't brown yourself prematurely.

I think you can mod the inf file so it thinks your using those drivers, I saw it somewhere in Guru3D, then you can use your stable drivers for BF3.
