Yet again, I need help to figure out if there is something wrong with my Titan...

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I am not positive if the problem is my titan, my cpu, or just some software issue, but let me explain myself.

LONG EXPLANATION: The only reason I am even pondering the possibility of it being my 3570k cpu is because the issue started relatively soon after I had been overclocking m cpu. I was admittedly being lazy about it, and just went into the asrock bios, using the auto overclock feature that came with the board. I tried a variety of settings ranging from as high as 4.4ghz (which in all honesty is not that high and should not have caused any problems), to 4ghz, yet at each setting, I had to lower it again as my pc would crash after a bit of gaming. Eventually I gave up resolving to do it right another day I had more time during, but to my dismay my video driver decided to start crashing, constantly. It gives the message of something like "Nvidia Kernel driver XXX has crashed." I tried about 4 different driver versions, all having the same problem. I left my pc on overnight with norton running wondering if i had gotten a virus, and when I checked up on it the next morning, my gpu was at 80 celcius (the max i have it set for) andi had no programs open but norton. The driver crashes will just coninue, sometimes like 3 times immediately in a row and sometimes 2 minutes inbetween. The screen goes black and comes back on like 4 seconds later. Also, chrome windows go white after it most of the time so i cannot even type this up on that pc. It is infuriating, I spend like 3200 on a beastly pc and i have to deal with this bull**** (costs include monitor keyboard and mouse as well as a sound system, but I am too lazy to subtract those from the overall cost).

One of the weirdest things is that it only happens when I am connected to the internet. as soon as I unplug my powerline from my pc the driver crashes stop, ***?

SHORT EXPLANATION: My display driver repeatedly crashes before coming back on again 3 seconds later with the message of something like "NVidia Kernel Driver XX has crashed," it only happens when I am connected to the internet, and it started to occur after some very mild cpu overclocks. Also I came back to my titan at 80 Celsius when the only thing running wsas NORTON.

I will be back to reply to comments at 8pm eastern standard time

Thanks in advance

When you say this only happens when connected to the internet, how long are you connected to the internet? Have you left it on for a day+ without internet with no problems? Have you tried gaming without the internet without problems?

Yes to both of your last 2 questions. Whenever I connect to the internet the crashes begin within 5 minutes. Tried 3 times and true. But now I am really going to have to leave until 8 =P

i would say try another videocard if you have one, see if its related to the pcie slot that the titan is in, also is your psu sufficient for your setup? have you swapped out the ram sticks and updated your bios? try underclocking your titan, see if it does the same thing. then try another videocard (preferably nvidia) then see whats up. if you dont have another you can always speed over to the store when youre free buy a cheap little one or a hefty one if youre investigating the draw on your psu. and see how it goes from there.. also try disabling Ssaa and things of that nature. see if the issues persist.. if turning them off fixes your issue. then see about swapping your card for another titan.. and try 314.09 ive heard its one of the more stable drivers.... posts like this make me think about returning my titan before it even comes in the mail next week =/ also..try reseating the gpu if all else fails..

Hmm, very strange. Have you tried formatting and reinstalling windows? That would at least eliminate any virus/software/driver problems. You could always buy an Ethernet card and see if the problem persists. I would also clock your CPU to what it was before all of this if you have not already. Aside from that, I do not know.

Also try Baku's advice if you have another card. I do not know why the GPU would work perfectly fine without internet considering there is no correlation between GPUs and internet that I am aware of. By the way, what PSU do you have? It could be a power issue, but again, I do not see where the internet plays a role in that.

I have an ax 850w and also considering I have zero problems when gaming offline I dont think the psu is the problem.

I have a spare radeon card laying around I will try out to see if it has the same the problem or not.

I tried undervolting the card and it did nothing.'

Also when gaming offline ssaa does not matter so i do not think it would matter solely because I am online.

Also, I have not tried re installing or reformatting windows. I also have never done that before in my life. Before I go through the small trouble of googling it could you tell me if it takes a while, if it is difficult, and wheter or not my data is lost when I do this?

EDIT: I have done some research and still have some questions about reinstalling windows.

If I have a 250gb ssd for my OS drive and a 3tb storage drive both of which are mostly full, I doubt I can make a partition since they are more than half full. But, if I make just enough room on the 3tb to fit the importan files from thessd would reinstalling windows on the ssd delete the files from the 3tb storage?

If you have a SSD, it will not take more than 30mins. Otherwise a couple of hours. As far as your data, yes, it will all be erased. That is kind of the point. However, you can easily back up any important documents/pics/music/ect to another hard driver (external or internal). If you spent $3200 on your computer, you should (better) have a SDD plus a large HHD for storage.

This may help:

I smell a bitcoin miner.

They aren't detected by your virus software usually.

Google info about bitcoin miners and gpu driver crashes.

Seems to be a very common problem with some people..

Also, I don't suppose you use Google Chrome?

No, just make sure you format the sdd and not the 3tb. After you put everything you need on the 3tb it is best to unplug the sata cable from the 3tb HHD before doing anything. After you have formatted and reinstalled windows on the SSD, simply shut down, reconnect the 3tb and all of your files will be there.

As a side note, you should only put windows plus programs/games you use very often on the SSD.
