Windows 7: Nvidia GTS 360 in Asus g60jx

Nvidia GTS 360 in Asus g60jx

Hello I have been reading a lot in the forums on how to fix this issue and finally decided to make one. I did some driver verifications and everything was fine. However Everytime I am in a game I crash and have to force restart. Here are some of the information from event viewer.

I have deleted avast because someone suggested that caused the critical error, and I have done the driver verification. The problem is that every time it crashes in game it does not create a dump at all and the only place that has any info on the crash is event viewer with the info I have included.

Last week I got new ram because the laptop started crashing more frequently. Now the laptop is bsoding on its own, even when not in games. I reinstalled the newer driver 295.73, still getting crashes.

HOWEVER, in games now I have just been getting regular crashes and from steam and not the whole laptop freezing.

It would be awesome if you could help me fix this, the laptop became 1 year old in june and now I have no more warranty.

Dude, 1 year later how is it? the problem with the GTS360m and the Asus G60Jx is the memory clock. Yes, the graphics memory clock. The readings are usually
Core: 550
Memory: 1800
Shader: 1323

The problem is simple, at a voltage of 0.850, those settings will work fine. You'll never get a BSOD or "graphics has recovered" error. It will work just fine. The voltage above can only be achieved artificially by using the laptop in battery mode. So the moment you plug it into power, it shifts to 1.000v. This is where the problem is. The default settings will not function at that voltage and the G60Jx does not allow manual controls of the voltage settings.

So what to do? Simple. Reduce the memory clock.

My readings are (at P0/P8/P12 Level respectively)
Core: 600/550/135
Memory: 1680/1680/135
Shader: 1451/1323/270

I put these settings under stress test and they came out fine. No BSOD, no "graphics recovered" errors EVER! However I noticed that even putting the memory clock to 1682mhz, caused the errors and BSOD to return. So my take is that Asus overclocked the memory and did not fully test it with the voltages.

How to fix it?

1. Download nVidia Inspector.
2. Create a shortcut to the desktop, right click the shortcut and click properties.
3. In the target area, add this to the end "-showFermiClocks" (without the quotes obviously). Click OK and open the shortcut
4. In the clocking section, select the dropdown list and ensure it is on "Performance Level 2 (P0)" (This performance level is the highest, and is matched to the voltage setting of 1.000v).
5. Reduce the memory clock to 1680 (that's the best I got for my system)
6. Click "Create Shortcut Clocks"
7: Repeat from Point 4 with (P8) (P8 is the second highest and is matched to the voltage setting of 0.850v). Select the clocks you want to P8 Level. Mine are 550/1680/1323
8: Click "Create Shortcut Clocks"
9: IMPORTANT! VERY IMPORTANT! Ensure that when you click those shortcut clocks, that nVidia Inspector is telling you that current clocks are 135/135/270. This way, all the settings above will flow in properly. The downside of running the shortcut clocks when the current clock is at 550/1800/1323 or 405/324/810, is that they will be applied, yes, BUT chances are that the memory clock will be applied at 324mhz. And you'd have to restart your comp so that it gets back to default. It wont cause any malfunction but your memory clock will be slow when gaming. Apply the shortcut clocks when at P12 level. It is advised.

If anyone gets stuck anywhere, just post and I'll see where I can help out.

Cheers! Say goodbye to BSOD.
