Help Needed :( Bad OC on Card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Honestly didnt know where to go for best help. But I've read a few OC pages here from time to time and thought Id give this a shot.

My Card: GV-N560SO-1GI-950 a Gigabyte GTX560ti SOC edition

The dumb ass mistake: I'm sick with a bad cold and can't sleep. In my tired state i opened gigabytes oc guru to see wth it was. It didnt seem to do anything. I, in pure innocent stupidity, left a slider in a position far from default and hit apply instead of close. This immediately killed my display (and woke me the hell up). I can only assume I either a) OC'd the card too far or b) pumped too many volts into it. Those were the options on the screen I believe.

I can get the pc to post and boot; however, if I boot into safe mode I cannot open oc guru cause drivers were not loaded and I cannot run EXEs. If I boot as normal I have only a few seconds to do anything before the display dies. I tried to boot in to low rez state but the pc acted extremely slow and then display died

I figure I need to flash the card back to stock. I just have no clue how to do that. I'd likely need to do it at command prompt as well

Any help would be awesome.

I'm going to let this panic and frustration wear off and hopefully finally sleep.

Uninstall videocard drivers in safe mode (driversweeper). This way oc guru won't recognize your card and won't apply oc. Now you should be able to boot into windows and remove oc guru or set it to defaults.

I once had a smiler problem like you, it was with one of my 480's if I put the card on the second or third slot with another card installed it just would crash my games or not get detected.

I think re flashing that 560ti would be much easier if you could boot into windows using another graphics card and then go on abouts flashing the ti from there?

Thank you so much for the reply guys.

I though gigs oc guru had physically changed something on the card but it was just a software tweak that runs in windows. I couldn't uninstall the POS from control panel so I used drivesweeper (great tool ) to purge my sys of all nvidia drivers. I was able to boot fine and then uninstalled guru from the cd installer (it refused to uninstall via control panel) and installed latest nvidia drivers.

I feel better than a free blow job right about now.

The thought I ruined a 300$ vid card was sickening to me last night.

Again, thanks for all the helpful replies guys
