Gigabyte GTX550ti have really bad drivers?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
These Nvidia drivers are really bad for this card or something. Using both the drivers that came on disc, ones from windows update, and the newest, they are always crashing. I even have a fresh install of windows and they just randomly crash. For some reason it only happens on the desktop never in game. There is no overclock on the system at all. Running on stock everything. Too late to return the card back to the store.

im not positive if this is right but i have seen of cases were the default voltage was to low if that is true it only has a stable clock under load because it is pulling more volts but i did not find one for this card specifically hope this helps

Are you concerned with the warnings in event viewer, or is this causing an issue that interrupts your PC usage?

There may be a problem with your 2D clocks/voltages.

Can't you RMA the card with Gigabyte? There isn't any reason for a card like that to ever crash at stock settings, specifically at 2D clocks.

Umm, I have the EVGA version of that card. It runs great. First thing, go to Nvidia's website and download the latest certified driver. If you are unsure of what to download, use the widget. Next, uninstall the current driver set. Then, install the new one. Another thing, disable automatic updates in Windows. A lot of their generic drivers can cause problems.

if all is updated i would just try and rma the card because i cant see any other reason why other than a faulty card you could also try and backtrack to older drivers before just in case

Hello? Am I missing something here? His drivers are crashing. He did not say that he completely loses picture. It could even be bad memory. But it's doubtful the gpu is bad, unless of course, he bought a used refurbished model off of a crackhead. Wipe old drivers, instal Nvidia only drivers. Still having problems? Check for bios update. Still... Run memtest.
