Is my gtx 580 broken?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Lately I have been getting random artifacts. It was locking my pc up and I would have to restart it. Now I get the artifacts but then I get the dreaded "nvidia driver stopped responding and has recovered", then everything is fine. I swear it started after I installed the 296.10 drivers. I went to older drivers but still happens. It is not overheating and I have ran occt and evga oc scanner and have received no artifacts. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi bshan67. Artifacts from boot or just when on desktop/gaming etc? What temperatures are you getting from the card?

I have recieved them on boot once, then it launched into start up repair. I reinstalled windows and got them again using the 296.10 drivers. I was playing MOH yesterday and the screen started flashing and the drivers crashed. That was using the 285.xx drivers. I keep getting driver crashes, but they recover now, instead of locking my pc up.

Like stated, check the temps... use EVGA precission or afterburner and check the temps...

I started getting random artifacts on my GTX 295 when dust built up in the coolers, and i cleaned it out and dust built up so quickly, and temps got around 90.

I never let my cards get dirty like that anymore...

Try reseating the card. My 580 lightning from time to time will start artifacting and driver will crash and recover constantly just web browsing. All i have to do it reseat and im good. I dont know how or why it works it self loose. Just something quick to try... Hope it helps!

Sorry I forgot to post temps, 70 degrees at full load. I will take it out and look for dust and reseat the card when I get home. Also I dont get artifacts when running oc scanner or occt for 3 hours. Ive had card crap out on me before and always produced artifact when using those 2 programs.
