9800GTX Problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi
Today when I entered a game, after like 30 seconds the computer became extremely slow then froze and the colors on the screen were "corrupted".
So I restarted and it even froze on the Windows 7 welcome screen (with corrupted colors) so I restarted again and the screen resolution is 800x600 (usually it's 1920x1080), GPU-Z is showing 0 Core\Memory\Shader and other unknown stuff.
Here is a pic:

and the Device Manager is showing in the display adapters 9800GTX device status: "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

Actually, this happened the first time yesterday so I reinserted the GPU and it ran fine until now.
This started to happen when I updated the drivers to 295.73 WHQL so i went back to 290.53 and as I said, it happened again today.
Is it a driver issue?
Do I need to use Driver Sweeper to completely remove the drivers?

What do think is the problem?

Try to wipe the 295 update from the system and proceed to install a stable driver. I have a 9800gtx and thought about updating to 295, I think I will wait.

Also try the driver from the original install disk, then update to 290 after.

OK, so I used that guide to uninstall the drivers and installed stable drivers, it booted normally the resolution was back to normal, I open GPU-Z and the numbers were there but after like 10 seconds it happened again (extremely slow PC and corrupted colors), I restarted and the PC booted normally and I DIDN'T open GPU-Z , I played FIFA11, FIFA12, Alan Wake and no crashes.

So is it possible that GPU-Z is causing the issue?
