RED SCREEN (not RSOD) with newer drivers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been getting a blank red screen with my gtx 690. It occurs every time I started anything ( benchmarks/games) that utilizes my gpu. But I can still tab out of it and get to desktop screen(so its not rsod). I've tried using all the Latest drivers (302s - 306s) and even reinstalling windows, but the problem still exist. Something that confuse me is that I have no problems with the 301.42whql driver. With the newer driver, I have to turn off sli or else ill be getting a blank red screen. FYI: I dont have any monitoring software installed.

so i changed most of my hardwares.
-Intel I5 3570k -> Intel 3770K
-Asus Sabertooh Z77 -> Asus Maximus V Formula
-G.skill 16gb DDR3 ram -> generic 8gb ddr3 ram
-Zotac GTX 690 (2 times rma) -> changed brand to MSI -> and back to Zotac
-PSU Corsair AX850 rma 1x
-reflashed my GTX 690 bios to ASUS then EVGA (both have newer bios version)
other things ive done
*Removed my sound card
*changed my refresh rate to 60hz
*changed display color to 16 bit
*clear motherboard CMOS
*no overclocking
i've tried changing monitor. from Samsung ,ASUS, Viewsonic.
resolution is 1920x1080 ,
Im using a dual link DVI-D.
tried using single link Dvi-D
Ive got no custom video modes or scaling

after a fresh windows install,(no overclocking from bios, no other softwares installed) then i installed only the graphic driver. started some game(alan wake, guild wars2,diablo3,battlefield 3, unigine heaven benchmark. etc) ,and guess what,still a blank red screen. only 301.42 WHQL let me run games with SLI.
all the newer drivers, including 306.23 WHQL gave me red screen whenever i start any games or benchmark with SLI on.

do you have any suggestions on this?
thanks

sorry for my bad english

I have been having the same problem with my SLI'd GTX 670(well it has only happened once) and I have heard that it could be anything from faulty monitor/cables to a bad motherboard/Bios chip/cpu But he most rational thing I have seen, at least in your case is that it made be a bad memory module in the card. For me it's a bit more tricky having just bought new memory and CPU with a 6300 and I have also noticed vdroop that was never there before with my 4170, so...ya I might have a bunch of different things wrong with my computer see if this helps http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=167051
I hope this helps, but it seems that it is a problem with 600 series cards
