Problems with 560 Ti

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all:

Preface: Running Pallit 560 Ti on windows 7 64 bit.

I got a new computer about 2 months ago and straight out of the box it would periodically BSOD. It sort of stabilized after a week and I elft it alone. At least a few times a week, usually when I am browsing the internet, the comp will lock up for ~10 seconds screen will then go black for 2-5 seconds, then come back up with a notification telling me my NVIDIA driver stopped working and was recovered.
My nvidia drivers are up-to-date (even tried switching to beta drivers for a while). Games run fine for the most part but sometimes have screen tearing (in RAGE especially).
Furmark showed gross distortions (looked like spiked cutting across the donut hole) even at the card's stock speed at 45 C. GPUTool shows constant pixel 7-20 mismatching at the card's default settings.

Is this card defective or is something else to blame? Thanks in advance!

hey mate. Do you still get BSOD? Did you build the system yourself? If not then send the system back to whoever sold it and see what they say....if you did then RMA the 560 ti as sounds like theres some serious issues.

hey thanks for the response. No I did not build it myself, but if I RMA the system Ill have to pay shipping which will probably approximate the cost of a new card to begin with. If the card itself is defective I am pretty sure I can convince them to just let me ship that, but I want to be sure that the gfx card can be responsible for the syndrome I was describing.

BSODs are few are far between and have a tendency to occur when system has just booted up if I go crazy and try to open too much stuff at once as soon as windows loads.

Sounds like your issue is driver related. Being that you had the issue straight out of the box, I would have sent it back right away and requested they pay shipping since they sent you a faulty product.

In any case, try to uninstall the drivers, run driver sweeper in safe mode, than reinstall using the "clean install" option. See if that helps. If not, send back the card.

Thanks for the advice. DId a full uninstall and reinstall with most updated driver off nvidia site and im still getting the same stability results and flashing thin blue/black bars when watching something on Netflix.

I guess my question is would all of my issues (stability test errors as noted in my OP, slight tearing in some games, freezing with screen reset and error message from windows telling me that the graphics driver stopped working but was recovered, bars when watching videos on Hulu and Netflix) be attributable to another part of my computer besides the gfx card?
