Drivers uninstalled on boot?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
A little something weird happened just about 10 minutes ago when I booted up my computer. Last night I was experimenting with overclocking my GTX 460. I brought it up to 800/1600/2000 with the fan still at auto (30%). Everything ran very smoothly from what I noticed: I ran Crysis on Ultra High settings with 4x AA and everything was running very smoothly. I shut my computer down and went to bed because I had to get up early for class. I came home and booted my computer. I noticed black lines on my MOBO starting picture (which usually isn't good I presume). Once it booted to windows everything was 800x600 resolution. As discolored as it was, I right clicked and no Nvidia Control Panel showed. I went into device manager and it told me there were no drivers

Something tells me it's the overclock that has something to do with this? It's weird that the drivers just uninstalled. I reinstalled them and shut it down to try it again and it booted with no problems. MSI Afterburner still shows my card as overclocked.

Has this happened to anyone else before? First timer here.

Strange. The fact that you had issues on teh POST screen is disconcerting, because at that point there's no OC, and no drivers involved at all. If that keeps happening I'd become concerned that the card is defective.

But a word of advice from past experience: manually set the OC after bootup for a little while here rather than telling AB to apply the OC on startup. Do that for like a week and then once you've confirmed the OC is stable on everything you play, THEN let AB apply the OC on startup.

If you have what's actually an unstable OC getting applied on startup it can cause some strange behavior.

I had the same issue except I didn't OC mine and it's a 450 not a 460.

I have those, but I don't think it's the beta version. It's the newer one the released, unless the one they released is the beta version?

I haven't had any problems since I last installed them. If I do I'll end up going back to the previous one.
