Video Display drivers stop responding during OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm new at doing this... but I used nVidia nTune and did a coarse tuning. During the process my video display drivers stop responding but windows recover and it would usually restart.

After the tuning process, my cpu is clocked up to about 2.7ghz, but the video display drivers would stop responding and force me to hit the off button. The file nvlddmkm is the one that stopped responding i believe. Doing this many improper computer shutdowns led to hard disk errors and eventually made me reinstall windows altogether. Right now I am about to ditch the idea of overclocking altogether just because it's so unstable. I'm not sure what's wrong.

hmm what type of power supply do you have(brand)
and plus go into safe mode (press f8 after teh motherboard boot screen and hold it) and uninstall the drivers. and then make sure the oc isn't applied on start up. you might of oc'd too much.

oh yeah and reinstall drivers...
