Windows 7: Nvidia driver 331.82 & 331.65 crash desktop & games

Nvidia driver 331.82 & 331.65 crash desktop & games

So got a bit of a problem, my GTX 670's drivers keep crashing and I cant work out why

Basically it crashes when ever I do anything, open Firefox, crash, open Rift, crash, start Windows, crash.

I did replaced the TIM on my card (MX-4) a couple of weeks ago (not the first time I've removed the cooler on this card) as I was worried about how hot the card was getting and how hot it was getting my CPU WC loop, over 80 on most days, it ran fine for over a week then started playing up out of no where

Cant work out if its the actual card or just all the crap in Windows . I've attached the Windows crash log thing although it hasnt BSOD

Thanks

I had crashes, freezes, bosd after 331 driver install, downloaded 310.90 drivers, uninstalled 331 drivers offline, did registry backup, restore point, registry clean, installed 310 except 3D drivers (awesome) No bosd, freezes, PC running awesome.

Thanks I'll try them next, just found out my pc decided to uninstall all my chipset and USB3 drivers

Hopefully this is all it is, I highly doubt I could of damaged my GPU just from changing the TIM

Well it worked until I shutdown and powered back on then it just BSOD but the monitors didnt get a video feed after the splash screen

This is doing my head in, posted another crash dump thing, also running 327.23 drivers now

Hi,

Revert to 314.22 WHQL, as it's, for the moment, the best released driver. (stability, no TDR's etc).
Choose the option to clean install.
For details, see my other posts: 100% GPU usage spikes freeze entire system- nVidia GeForce GTX670M

Hi,

As mentioned above. First remove all the drivers that you are using. Download driver sweeper. After uninstalling the drivers, run driver sweeper to remove the left overs of that driver from your PC. Install the latest drivers now.
