670 acting funny

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So i underclocked my gigabyte gtx 670 frtom 1302mhz back to 1058 and ever since it wont work right i can get a picture on my monitor but it doesnt last long before i BSOD and if i dont BSOD the computer wont run programs, it will say 7zip error or that the program failed and asked to terminate the program. i ran a windows diagnostic and it told me that i had bad hardware. Well if i dont have the 670 plugged in (not using it) the computer works fine. I bought it about 2 months ago and immediatly strapped a closed loop water cooler to it so i couldnt return it if i tryed.

am i stuck with a broken card or does anybody have any insight on my situation?

can you tell me how did you flashed the 670 and what program you used to flash it? did you flashed manually? used firestorm?

we need details

Maybe try reinstalling the drivers if you have enough time before it BSODs, if possible.

i used EVGA Prescion to overclock i clocked it from 1058 to 1302 and it ran fine. well 2 days later i set my setting back to default along with my cpu had it OC to 4.5Ghz to it to stock with a clear CMOS, i went back into the bios and set my ram profile and turned off the bootup MSI image. When it saved and rebooted i got logged in and it BSOD and everytime i would try to start windows it would just BSOD so i reinstalled windows without the 670 because it would BSOD during install. I installed W7 and download the drivers updated windows and then shutdown and plugged the 670 in. started it up and got picture so i kept going, when i tryed to install the driver it started telling me that there was a 7zip error and the file could not be read, so i retryed and it got past that point and then told me that the install failed tryed agian siad the hardware was not compatible. so i unplugged, and put my buddies 650Ti in and installed the drives no hitch and the card worked fine but needless to say my 670 is still not working properly and like i siad i get an image but its just a matter of time before it just bsod.

well if you have a second card this will be easy for you.

go get the Gigabyte 670 Co stock bios.
make sure the 660 are in the first slot in your mobo
set the 670 as a second card
make a bootable USB drive and put the stock bios in the USB. HERE
make sure you bios is set to boot to USB Primary.
make sure you know which GPU's is the 670 and use the following command.

Nvflash --protectoff

Nvflash -4 -5 -6 rom_name.rom

you can boot to windows with a 670 as a second card.use the GPU-z to find the device ID and make sure you take a note of it and don't flash the 660 with the 670- bios
