I would try using the drivers that you were using before.
just the game, no messages at all

You should be using MSI Afterburner or EVGA precision and the automatic fan control (temp depent). If you haven't been, it's probably been running crazy hot. Possibly dead.
i have temp readings always on my second screen, temps never go higher then 48c (wc ftw! )

Usually, when I get the error your getting, it's because my I overclocked my 295 too high. Since your at stock clocks, it's possible it could be a hardware issue. Let us know your OCCT results.

I have also experienced similar crashes in older games, and had to update the DirectX 9 components within Windows 7.

Microsoft DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer

Lastly, check the Windows Event Viewer (Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer), and look for any Critical or Error Events that occurred at the same time of your crash.

at the moment i'm back with 260.99 drivers and TF2 runs perfect again without problems

I assume this means that OCCT found no errors, right ? If so, then it's just the driver that wasn't working correctly. ^^

The 295 drivers were always really finicky. I used the 196.xx drivers for a while there without problems. I wanna say I was using the 196.21 drivers until the 258.xx set came out. How old is it and what model? Original or single PCB?

Hmm do you have multicore rendering on or off in TF2? I have the same problem for a long time with both my dual-pcb GTX 295 and single-pcb GTX 295 CO-OP... Exactly the same, with black screen, looping sound and sometimes getting clocks stuck at 400/799/100. Event Viewer shows the usual EventID 4101 nvlddmkm has crashed and "successfully" recovered.

Since installing Windows 7 x64 SP1 the crashes still happen, but the clocks don't seem to get underclocked after the crash most of the time, which isn't that better as my PC will freeze with a black screen if I try to run a game or if I try rebooting/shutting down it freezes in the process (unless I disable and re-enable SLI to give the card a sort of reboot). As incredible as it may sound this did not happen in Vista x64 SP2.

At first the 260.99 drivers seemed to have helped stop the crashes for me as well, but it only seemed to make them take more time or something... as they still happened some time later. I'm wondering if there's a problem with the 295s themselves or the way they interact with games/certain hardware.

As I've said I've already tried reformatting and installing Windows 7 and trying several drivers (197.45, 260.99 and other different 2xx.xx drivers including latest ones). Tried stock clocks and even underclocked, no good. Tried disabling PhysX. Tried upping IOH voltage a bit. Tried only one stick of RAM. Tried updating DirectX, including DirectX 9 packages. All to no avail. OCCT gives no errors on both GPU or PSU test, memtest86 on each RAM stick for 10h gives no errors and temps don't go over 65ºC.

It seems though that running with SLI off generates no crashes, but will have to test further as I did so much testing I'm not sure anymore.

I'm about to pull my hair out, so I had no other choice but to ask for RMA and see if I have better luck. I hope it's not some secret problem either my Mobo or CPU is hiding from me.

If you want to know more about my adventure here's my EVGA forum thread...
