Display Drivers Die

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so my display drivers keep crashing. Rarley they will recover most of the time its a case of several reboots before it comes up back to normal. I was running nvidia win7 64bit 260.99 and the problem started about a week ago. A few days ago i updated to the new 266.58 hoping that it would solve the problem but no success. When the cards work they perform fine, no over heats on any of my rig all as it used to just with the driver fault. This is in SLI and non SLI mode. My rig is the one as stated below and a picture of just one of several of the screens i get included.

Have you tried re-installing the drivers and properly clearing out the old ones? Sometimes just installing drivers over previous versions causes problems.

If not download a program called Driver Sweeper

Uninstall your video drivers normally and allow the system to restart. However instead of restarting normally.. Restart the machine in Safe Mode!

Once in safe mode run Driver Sweeper and delete everything Nvida.

Allow the machine to to restart and install latest drivers.

Are you still having problems after running driver sweeper? I ask because I ran into this thread looking into my own problems with my GTX460. It appears your motherboard is on the list of boards that people seem to have issues with, worth looking into at least.
