gtx 460 issue

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought a GTX 460, installed the drivers (computer is freshly formatted), and I've had:
- 1 blue screen of death
- 1 black screen freeze
- 1 white screen freeze
- 3 driver crashes (and subsequent recovery immediately after)

The rig is solid (XFX 750W Silver PSU, Asus Pro 1155 Mobo, etc, etc). Everything is great. But the Graphics card is just doing horribly.

Is this a permanent issue of some sort? I'm thinking of attempting to make a return on it tomorrow, even if it means an RMA cost (hopefully there's no RMA charge). Any reason to keep the GTX 460?

It's an EVGA 1GB version.

Reset any OC you have on your system (revert to stock) and see if your problem goes away. Occasionally, you require a little more vcore depending on your video card, but that's usually if you have it OC'd. It's worth a shot.

It's a stock card, and not overclocked at all.

It has crashed multiple times in the period of 6 hours so far while setting my computer up (without running anything other than installs and such). After having all the drivers up to date, it continued to crash and such.

I'm thinking of getting entirely out of the 400-series and returning this p.o.s. GTX 460. I hope I don't get charged 15% restocking fee, as it is causing crashes.

Which drivers? I had an issue where the drivers constantly crashed, then would blue/black screen at windows boot. I had to format and use different drivers.

If the card is faulty and within the return window you will not get charged a restocking fee. Just tell them that it blue screens and get another one. Try using the beta 266.44 or 266.33 drivers.

If its doing this at stock and its brand new then its faulty. RMA it.

Problem is I want to return it and get a different card from them.

The reason I want to do that is because I've been reading that a lot of people have been having issues (google "460 crashing"). I plan to just get something that will 100% work for me (GTX 570 or 6970... probably the 6970... I don't care about brands as long as the stuff works decently).

I just don't want to RMA it and continue to have issues.
