Is the system overclocked or at stock settings? If it's OC'd, it may be an unstable OC and I'd recommend going back to stock to rule that out.

I had "white screening" with a GTX460. It turned out that the GPU was failing.

is there any way to know this for sure? i have 2 in sli. so i guess i could turn off on of my pcie lanes, only thing is the white screen is intermitaint. I have only had them just over a year. only just water cooled them. and also the whole computer locks up. numlock light not changing and my temps on my keyboard display freeze too. would a bad GPU cause a whole system lock up or just video loss?

does not seem to happen in safe mode. i have reinstalled to earlyer video drivers and still WSOD either straight away on boot into windows or could be after an hour or so. c'mon guys i need some ideas. maybe a faulty gpu power lead could cause this. i does look like just one card is affected. i switched off the pcie lanes one at a time and ran prime95 and kombuster for 2 hours on one card and then the other the crashed after an hour or so. i than turned on the other ( the one that had not crashed) and ran tests again 2 hours no crash. so i do think that ones affected and not the other. i just hope the gpu aint failing. only just finesh my first water cooled rig so i cant realy afford a replacement too soon. but then again they both seem ok in safe mode. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Try each GPU to see if one is bad.
