Display Driver Crashes

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Update: Thought this was an issue with folding since I never had the issue until I began folding but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Even after I stopped folding, I still crashed. I guess it could be a driver issue or maybe some issue with the most recent version of Java but I'm not sure where a better section to place this thread would be.


Old info: So I've been folding for the past few days 24/7 and haven't run into any issues...until now.
I was doing my schoolwork and folding when the display driver crashed several times back to back with only a few seconds between the occurrences. At the time, I was listening to a recording of my teacher and the school uses a program called Elluminate for these things but I paused it while I messed with my computer. Earlier today, I had started GPU folding for the first time, I was only folding with my CPU before, so I thought maybe my OC on my GPU was unstable even though I've ran games for multiple hours consecutively and never had issues so I reset it through MSI afterburner and got back to listening to my teacher when it crashed again. So, of course, I paused the recording again and did a little thinking. Then I shut down both of the folding applications, set my GPU OC back to how it was, and started the recording up again to find there were no issues.

I have used Elluminate before while folding but that was only when I used my CPU to fold.
I'm also doing some testing right now, everything is back to how it was before the crashes but I'm not actually getting any issues yet. Needless to say, I'm rather confused.

Also, I'm posting this in the folding section since I suspect there was some issue related to folding but I really don't know.

Sounds to me like instability.

Are you sure though because I set my GPU clocks back to default and started the recording up again and it crashed again?

How are the temperatures looking?

What kind of homework are you doing? Is it intensive video stuff?

According to HWMonitor which has been running all day, the max my GPU has hit is only 59c and CPU max is 47c. My GPU gets a little hotter when gaming but I haven't done any in a while and it never goes above 65c anyways.

I'm just using a program my school uses called Elluminate which provides the teacher a way to go through powerpoint presentations with the class live and record it as well so if anyone misses the class, they can go back and watch it.
I paused my GPU folding and ran the recording again for a short time and my GPU usage never went above 5% so I don't think it's very intensive.

It could be the software your using.

By software, you mean Elluminate?

Also, just had it happen again but this time after I reset my GPU OC, the issue went away so it may very well be a stability problem.

Had the same issue again. The overclock was set back to default. Once I got it to stop crashing, I set it back to the 6850's reference clocks since it came factory overclocked. That didn't fix the issue either though.
