Screen tearing

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I recently got on my computer when I woke up.I tried to play my game but the screen was tearing then it froze on me.
I got a pop-up message saying, "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver,Version 260.99 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
(I'm pretty sure it said that, I'm not sure)

So I decided to try other games..Same thing happened weird pixelated colors and screen tearing then after a couple of seconds it would crash on me..
I've already tried uninstalling my current drivers and using the ones I had before, but it still did not work.So after that I reinstalled the newest drivers and it still did not work.
So I went into Windows Experience Index Access, on my graphics and gaming graphics I had 6.0.I redid it and I got a 7.4..Which makes me confused.

Can anyone help me?

That happens to me too, but only in Dawn of War 2. Maybe your card is overheating?

The 460s are giving a lot of people problems and usually people say to check to make sure your PSU is good enough, and then to check for overheating.

Have you tried any other drivers, like the beta drivers at the Nvidia site?

It's not overheating for sure, my temp is right at 50c when in full load and around 24c idle.
My Psu should be fine, I recently just got this computer a month ago.I'll check on that though.
I'll try the beta drivers right now, I wouldn't think it would be the drivers though.
I was playing it yesterday and everything was fine, I played a couple of games fine nothing ever happened.Then when I got on..It just randomly stopped working...I would think it would be the graphics card.

well more importantly, is your GPU overclocked? if it is, give it some more voltage if not, downclock a bit, run furmark, occt and play games.

when you get that error it's usually and likley that your OC is not stable

I've been troubleshooting my video card problems over at the Nvidia forums, there's a lot of good info over there.

It sounds like you may just need a RMA though.

Run Furmark or other GPU stress test programs a couple times to see if the problem occurs. If it is not graphic card overheating, it could be the PSU not being able to supply enough juice. And, if the card is overclocked, turn it back to its default clocks.

Here is a 'complete' troubleshooting procedure:

It is barely overclocked, I never overclocked it, it was pre-overclocked.
(Not by much though)
How much should I lower the voltage by?

Ye, I've already read on that, hehe.
I really don't think it's the PSU though.It should supply enough.
EDITChanged my voltage to 950 and now games are working fine!)
(It was at 1025..)

Well, it seems like it was too much...But I don't know if it's my ears just ringing..But I think I hear a very very high frequency sound emitting

You probably did hear a squeal. Capacitors will squeal at higher voltages. I've had motherboards and graphics cards squealing in the past.

I would suggest reinstalling fresh nvidia drivers.
my GTX480 did the same thing, fresh install fixed it.

Also check your temperatures and confirm that's not the problem
