Windows 7: Built new computer, getting video crashes randomly.

Built new computer, getting video crashes randomly.

Hi,

I built a new computer recently; and I seem to get these errors mostly when playing games but sometimes even in computer boot/bios loading.

Ive updated video and motherboard drivers.

But it seems the newer Nvidia drivers cause the problem more frequently.

Any help or advice is highly appreciated.


My pc specs are :
Code:
OS:7-64bit 
CPU:i7 3770k 
Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 
Memory:2x4GB Corsair Vengence 
Graphics Card:EVGA 670GTX 
Monitor :27" Samsung LED 
Hard Drives:128GB SSD, 1TB Seagate 
PSU:750W Corsair
Thanks.

Probably nothing but that reminds me of interference from external electrical sources I used to get on older TV's. I can remember a yard lght that used to do that. How about a shaky cable? If your PSU is modular make sure they are well seated. Try different cables on VGA, DVI and HDMI to see if any of those might clear it??

Thanks, I'll try that and get back to you.

Edit:

It seems to be the nvidia driver crashing when ever I play a game. After looking online, the issue seems to be the fableed TDR issue.

Most of the posts about the TDR error are very old and I dont know if it has been fixed yet (since nvidia closed their forums recently), anyone knows why?

I had an EVGA 670 until I sold the rig this week. I never had those issues, but the drivers did have fairly significant performance differences. I had better luck with the newer drivers. If you really believe the new drivers are causing the problem, why not back up and install an older driver or try one of the beta drivers? Just be sure to get rid of all of the current drivers before installing the newer ones.

Also, you may try another card in your machine and try your card in another machine. That would give you a good idea if it is the motherboard or the card. The EVGA forums are very helpful and EVGA technical support is extremely good and open 24 hours a day. They will go to great lengths to help. Some of the top tech support people frequent their forums regularly and are very willing to step in. Just register your card with EVGA first.
