drivers crashing, cant find the issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, so since the last couple of weeks I have had some issues with the nvidia's drivers crashing.

I've had it crash in assasins creed and in world of warcraft.

However there is something weird; it's completely stable in benchmark tests. And works fine in games like Hearthstone.
Now I have a brand new HDD, thinking this would solve the problem, alas it did not, its still here.


The crashes differ from each other, it can be anywhere from completely freezing up, with buzzing noise in my headphones, to just crashing to the desktop, showing nvidia drivers have crashed. And the crash happens extremely fast, like 6 seconds in game.

Now I don't have any issues in just buying a new card, but I'd want to make sure the graphics card is at fault. (could it be the motherboard is unstable? could it be the processor?) Before I buy a new one.


How can I make sure the graphics card is faulty?
Is it even possible for a graphics card to be broken, showing these signs but otherwise working?


Thanks for any help guys.

Specs:
Asus ROG GTX 580 Matrix (max temps in burn in 83 degrees celsius)

i5 2500k ivy bridge (33 degrees celsius idle)
coolermaster cpu cooler

MSI z77 g45 motherboard

1000 watt bequiet! power supply

Xonar phoebus soundcard

edit:
Things I should add:
Card used to be overclocked, is now in safe mode (stock)
I have reinstalled the drivers multiple times, even on fresh HDD.

What happens when you downclock or up the voltage on the card? I'm assuming it's running stock, yes?

its running stock now, i will try downclocking it and lowering the voltage, how ever, i wouldnt know what voltage to lower.

The gtx 580 matrix has physical voltage buttons on the card, and ofcourse in the software. so i will have to figure that out

Make sure your card is seated correctly and all plugs to and from the PSU are secure. You may have knocked something loose putting in the new driver. Also, you never mentioned if returning your device to stock settings was even done? If so and the crashes still occur and you've checked all connections, download DDU (display driver uninstaller) and run it from safe mode. Once done, reboot and reinstall drivers. Go play some games and test it out.

when I had my 2 GTX 580 gpu's I had to re-seat them in the pci-e slots every 4 months, every 4 months I would get a TDR so a re-seat of the cards would fix me up for 4 more months. have had my GTX 680 for 1 year now and have not had a TDR with it.
