After years of perfect stability from nVidia's drivers, now this...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 


I loaded a page/thread here, hit the scroll wheel of my mouse, and the monitor faded Blank. This is the second time now recently, both times when the card was idle. Prior to this, I've had perfect stability from nVidia's drivers. Hardware acceleration in Firefox is enabled, but... last time it happened, it was not and I wasn't using Firefox.

I'll do some troubleshooting when I get home, but... I'm lost. What's the usual stuff to check? I'm using the 285.xx beta drivers. Should I roll back to official drivers?

This card has done this about three times a few months after I got it (back near February), but it was during Crysis when I was trying to overclock it (and it wouldn't overclock at all). I'm starting to think my card may be bad, but I do tend to worry and jump to conclusions (but if so, this is really what I need right now with everything else...).

Welcome to the club my friend! Beta drivers are always likley to be mroe unstable just go back to the official ones. Your lucky though every driver I have tried gets this error.

Try rolling back to WHQL drivers that are more stable.

It seems a lot of GTX 460 and GTX 560 users have driver problems lately from what I see in forums.

I never had one problem with my GTX 480 with any driver.

This is happening to a ton of people, including myself with any 28x.xx driver. To get rid of these completely you'll have to revert to the 275.33 drivers until Nvidia fixes their mess that they call drivers.

Yep. This is a well documented issue with all drivers from 280 onwards. Just from reading the feedback on their forums, it seems to be effecting 460/560/560 Ti owners more so than others.

I had it with 280.26 before rolling back to 275.33. No issues in the month or so, since.

This just happened to me for the first time. Running 285.38 betas. By far the worst drivers I have ever used...

Okay, it seems it's more an issue with drivers than it is a problem, so I'll roll back. It only happened during idle/light use, but it had me worried since it cropped up out of nowhere when it happened way back when as well. I was worried since I was on a luck streak with nVidia's drivers. Other than what was likely induced by my overclocks, the last time I saw driver errors with nVidia was with nv4_disp.dll (BSOD) back in the days of my GeForce 6800 GS. Thanks all!

Based on my observation, you should use older drivers for old games like crysis and warhead. You can actually check that newer drivers only affect the performance of new games. So if you're goin to play old games, don't get the new, stick to the rock solid old

epic fail, the very reason I switched to Nvidia was for better driver support,
I get the kernal crash about 3-4 times a day, I'm really wishing I would have gotten an AMD card now
