It happens with both OS's. I don't run windows 8 often, but my backup software will only run on a windows OS (hence the reason I am using 8 right now).

I looked for anything resembling a driver crash, but there is nothing. This problem has happened on windows 7 & 8, so there should be something in both.
I'm being a little speculative right now, but I just thought of something:
My second PCI-e slot never uses the drivers I have installed on the computer already. An example is when Windows boots, it uses the basic drivers (in low resolution) until it installs the windows drivers that let me up the resolution.
Having said that, I didn't re-install any nVidia drivers to use my 2nd PCI-e slot. I assume that the driver being used are the stock Windows ones. Everything is running fine now.
Therefore, I'm beginning to think that the new beta drivers are having the SAME problem as the 280 drivers.
It's weird, so I can explain more if needed.
Once my backup finishes, I'll do a full, clean reinstall of the 275.33 drivers. If the issue still occurs, I know I have a hardware problem. If it doesn't, I know that the new drivers are the problem.Edited by rdfloyd - 10/8/11 at 2:39pm
