evga 660 graphics card problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently put together my first build with the assistance of a friend and my computer just does not work with the graphics card in it. It seems to work fine when i run everything through the mb but obviously that isn't ideal and doesn't have nearly the same amount of power. I've done 4 clean driver installs so far , it black screened then showed an error message that said "display driver stopped responding and has recovered windows" but i don't know if maybe I'm not seeing something or maybe there are some compatibility issues with my other parts or maybe the graphics card is busted? for the past hour or so it boots up normally but when i get to the desktop the mouse begins to lag and it does the error message thing previously mentioned then crashes after a few minutes. Does anyone have any suggestions or help for me?

I am running windows 8 with an evga 660 gpu, an asrock z75 pro 3 mb, intel i5-3550 ivy bridge processor, gskill ripjaws 8 gb ram, western digital 1tb 7200 rpm hard drive, ocz agility 3 ssd drive and a corsair 750w power supply. Think thats everything... Any help is greatly appreciated! thanks.

Update: I got it to boot up and ran dxdiag, according to it nothing is wrong but shortly after the black screen happened again and i got the same error message before it rebooted itself. I am absolutely clueless to what is going on here.
