Random freezes in 3D applications

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Having a weird problem. Whenever I run a 3D application of some sort, I get random freezing. This just started happening recently.

Running everything 100% stock right now and it's still happening. When I'm playing StarCraft 2, first everything but the mouse freezes and I can move the mouse around for a bit, then everything else freezes. When I ran Unigine benchmark, it just froze after a minute or so.

The weird thing is sometimes it happens right away and sometimes it takes a little while to happen. Not sure why. Comp is fine outside of 3D applications, however when switching from SLI to not SLI it has also frozen a couple of times.

I'm 99% it's graphics related.. what tests can I do to diagnose the problem?

Thanks

86c could still be getting to hot.

Though it could be a ram problem as well. Run a memtest and check for errors, next up run a furmark test on the GPU's check temps when under 100% load. See what happens.

Nooo! Furmark on a 400 series card is actually dangerous. Nvidia implemented OCP on their 500 series just to stop people from frying their cards with it.

86c is pretty warm, though not necessarily dangerous for a 480. I'd suggest testing your cards individually to see which one is causing your lock ups. Loop Heaven for 30min to an hour on each and it should expose any instability.

If it's happening with both cards individually, it probably points to a problem elsewhere.

Both cards individually are giving me the same issue...

Well, it seems unlikely both cards would randomly suffer hardware failure at the same time... barring something like ESD or a power surge. Done anything out of the ordinary with them lately?

Also what drivers are you using? Have you tried rolling back to an earlier release?

116 is a TDR failure BSOD IIRC. A lot of people have had TDR issues with releases from 280 onwards (though those are thought to be related to web browsers using hardware acceleration). For most, reverting to 275.33 or earlier drivers restored stability.

You may want to check this thread out for some troubleshooting tips:: http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?s=e7bdfb25cf97a6a6af5d459acd2750f9&showtopic=215256

I tried going back to 27X something but same iSsue. My comp just froze while running prime 95 blend test at all stock settings though, so I suspect this is more tthan just a graphics thing at this point... Weird.
