WOWWFFFF!?!?!? my computer froze with RED AND PURPLE DOTS?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I don't even know what just happened. My computer just froze while watching a video. I couldn't access task manager or anything. My computer image was all disoriented and there was red and purple dots everywhere. I have no idea if this is a driver problem or graphic card problem. This is the first time I experienced this.

Does anyone know what the hell just happened? Using drivers 296.10

Did you overclock your GPU? Are you sure your CPU OC is stable?

Running my gpu at 900 core clock and shader clock at 1800. It's at default settings.

Running 4.5ghz at 1.376voltage. Yeah, everything seems stable. 44C at idle.

Um, simple and silly question - have you tried reseating all components?

Other than that it could be a driver issue of some kind?

Some times you can corrupt the video drivers. I would start by re installing drivers. If it happens again you might need to start stress testing the gpu.

Pink and purple are death screen colors, IE Pink screen of the death or purple screen of the death. Still could be drivers though, ive seen that too.

T^he pink screen of death (psod) is a weird problem. It can happen once and not show up again for three weeks. All of sudden it becomes more frequent.

It rarely happens. It happened twice so far. I've never had this happen at all with any drivers until I installed the latest one. So, I'm certain it is the drivers. It always happens when I watch porn for some reason. So annoying.

@TheQookieMonster

when i saw thread title, i was like he's using 460gtx or 560gtx TI for sure :]


A lot GF104/114 users reported PSOD pink screen freeze - mostly by youtube videos. Looks like Nv fuxed something in 296.10 (r95_43-27) driver, btw GF110 chip is ok..


try 295.73 driver or maybe new 296.36 Quadro/tesla, but i made only x64 INF for international version, both are from a different branch compared to 296.10.
