Video card crashing constantly after modding BIOS

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I followed the method exactly on the front page to flash the BIOS on my EVGA 660 FTW Signature 2 2GB. It worked exactly as shown and described on the front page. However, now the Nvidia driver crashes constantly when doing anything video related: Running any gpu benchmark,. the nVidia hair demo, even just trying to play a video file. I have tried re-installing the nvidia driver (Clean install method), deleting the device (gpu) completely from windows device manager then restarting and re-installing drivers, updating drivers, nothing works. Regardless of which nvidia driver i use it crashes. By crashes I mean as soon as i start any graphics related process/task, the screen freezes for a second, then goes black, then returns to desktop with a notification on system tray saying the nvidia driver crashed and restarted. HELP!! I have put Precision X back on stock settings, I have even closed precision x completely, along with all the other re-install/uninstall methods mentioned previously. Nothing fixes this! Please someone, anyone, help me! If I could flash back to stock BIOS I would try that but I didn't realize the stock BIOS I saved using the front page BIOS mod method is no longer the stock BIOS and I have no other back up. Thanks in advance!

By front page I meant the front page of the 660 (Non-Ti Owner's Club/official thread. I thought I was posting this there oops

You probably unlocked the volts(?) so now it's boosting beyond stable automatically - if so then you need to restrict the boost as part of the vBIOS mod.

Depends on what tool you used?

But I'd use Keppler Bios Tweaker, so the below would restrict it to 1202Mhz. Put whatever your stable clocks are there, hope that helps.
