Windows 7: GeForce GTX 660 keeps crashing

GeForce GTX 660 keeps crashing

My PC Specs:

GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 660
CPU: Intel i5-4670K @ 3.40ghz
RAM: Kingston ValueRAM 4GBx2 DDR3
Motherboard: MIS Z97 GAMING 5
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO Basic
PSU: Corsair RM Series RM550
Already own a HDD, taken from previous computer.


Recently bought a new computer, bought all the parts and had a friend put it together, and ever since I keep getting crashes with my GPU. Always the same crashes, screen freezes, audio turns weird and usually have to restart my PC cause of it. Most times I get a little pop-up saying Nvidia windows kernel mode driver has stopped working and has been recovered or something along those lines.
I have already sent back 1 GPU and received a new one which has the same problems. I tried installing my drivers on the hdd instead of ssd didnt work, I tried underclocking, didnt work, did a clean install windows on ssd, didnt work. I'm out of options and would really love some help with this matter.

Hey there,

A small detail to point out. Your title says GTX660 but in your description it says GTX 600

Sorry to point it out, but knowing this will help members to help with your problem more efficiently

I will see if i can find the Microsoft article about this but if i remember rightly you need to edit and entry in the registry... it's not actually the the card drivers but Windows... it is due to a time out error of some kind.

I had a similar issue with an AMD card

Well... struggling to find the article i used but this may help (i believe it's more a workaround than an actual fix...)

Check the 2nd bullet point called TdrDelay in the below list (click the link)
I increased this value to 30 i think and that resolved the issue for me (the default value is 2)

TDR Registry Keys (Windows Drivers)

Hope this helps.

Jamie

I think it solved it with the TdrDelay registry key thing, I upped it to 15 seconds and no crashes as of yet, I'll keep playing and see if it does but thanks for the help anyway
