GTX 760 OC drivers crashing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently put together my first PC. spec;

OS: Windows 8.1 64bit
CPU: i7-4770 3.4GHz
Motherboard: gigabyte H86-D3H
GPU: gtx 760 Windforce (factory over-clocked edition)
Ram: 2x 4gb ddr3
PSU CX750m
SSD: 120gb
HDD: 2TB


From the point of initial start-up, my PC has a tendency to freeze graphically, sometimes turn black, and then come back up with a message with something along the lines of "Nvidia drivers have crashed and have been recovered". The crashes usually initiate immediately at start-up and access to the desktop, or on start-up of games. Usually though, once the game is up and running, it runs fine and consistently, until anywhere from 2-12 hours later, it will occasionally crash. I've used MSI to monitor temperature, the GPU is not over-heating. I've set-back the factory over-clocking which made some improvement, but still hasn't solved the problem. I have clean installed all available drivers to no avail. I've also reinstalled motherboard drivers, still having the problem. I disabled my onboard chipset in BIOS, and also changed power options to "performance", in both power management, and in Nvidia control panel. I have tried alternate PSU, tested RAM and run without each of the 4gb sticks, I have returned the GPU for testing and was told it was working fine. I have tried every suggested solution on google, and believe me, there are tonnes. Though still, I am having the problem. With the card removed, the system runs fine, though supposedly, the card isn't faulty. has anybody got any idea what I can do?

Try setting it to factory stock clocks. It's possible its a bum chip that can't handle an OC. Or else try upping the voltage in afterburner.

Not sure whether I mentioned, lowering core clock in MSI afterburner was one of the suggested fixes I have already tried. I currently have it clocked at the minimum setting, and that has improved but not fixed the problem. Unfortunately I'm unable to adjust the core voltage. I've now also attempted re-installation of Windows 8.1, but that hasn't fixed the issue. I'm now sending the card back to the manufacturer via the retailer. Hopefully they will be able to find a solution. Thanks for your help.
