GTX 560i driver crash / system freeze

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I just got my MSI GTX 560 Twin Frozr II delivered this afternoon, and I've spent all night messing with it. The performance difference between it and my 260 is something special. However, all good things in life come with a catch - the driver has crashed and recovered multiple times while running Furmark, and the system continuously does a complete freeze at random, regardless of voltage or clock setting. I even recorded a crash at only 880 Mhz core.

I'm running Nvidia's 266.66 for Windows 7 32-bit. I have already wiped the driver in safe mode with Driver Sweeper and done a clean reinstall. I am using MSI's Afterburner, and I have gone from 0.987 to 1.037 volts with several settings in between. The driver resets seem to have gone away with a lower voltage and clock setting, but the freezes seem to be unrelated. The freezes are most common when playing WoW, but have also occurred when I was just browsing the web.

Any ideas?

maybe you should try getting windows 7 64 bit.

Well, presumably your 260 ran in the same PCIE socket without issue so it shouldn't be the motherboard.

Can you try the 560 in another system? The card could very well be defective.

Alright, I've got to ask, you've gone back to stock speeds and it's still happening? You don't explicitly say this in your post. If so, go below stock speeds by ~10%, with stock voltage. Still happening? If no, your card is bad. If it's still happening with a 10% underclock, it might not be the card. Re-install your 260 for a bit and see if it works normally, then tell us what's up.

Halzen. I have the same exact problem you are having. I just got my eVGA GTX 560 TI SC a couple days ago to upgrade my GTX 260. Now I have random system freezes all the time. If I leave my computer for 30 minutes, it freezes. Light web browsing and it freezes. Were you able to find a resolution??? I even RMA'd my card thinking it was defective and the new card does the exact same thing. My GTX 260 runs perfectly. I installed it the other day and had it on for over a full day with no freezes. Anybody have any idea how to fix this? I am on 270.61 drivers and my second GTX 560 TI. And I also installed the new card after running driver sweeper and all that jazz. Here are my specs:

AMD Phenom II x4 940 3.0ghz
ASUS M3N-HT Deluxe Motherboard
CORSAIR XMS2 4x1GB DDR2 RAM
OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V PSU
EVGA GTX 560 TI SuperClocked
