Windows 7: Problem with NVIDIA driver crashing.

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Problem with NVIDIA driver crashing.

Hi, I'm running Windows 7 x64 Full Retail, just reinstalled about a week ago.
I've been over an longer time no mather if I use Windows XP or Windows 7 having some problems with the NVIDIA driver crashing no mather what I try.
I've been chaning drivers to older ones and beta. Now I had a BSOD 2-3 times.
I think it may have something to do with hardware that's not compatible with each others (guess) or driver issue.

System specs:
Windows 7 x64
NVIDIA 560TI (OC Edition)
12 GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz 6GB CL7
Intel Core i7-930
Various of harddrives (over 6 TB) but my system drive is Corsair SSD Force Series™ F120, 120GB

When thinking about it, it could be 1000W PSU is to little even tho it's a gold supply. Should I concider upgrading to 1200 W?

You dont have any minidumps in your folders.

To enable minidump follow these steps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Then we must wait for a new crash\bsod.

And after that you have to reupload the files.

One of our BSOD people will look at the report.
I'm not one of them.

But.. I have had problems with all the newest Nvidia drivers and so have others.

I installed the 285.62 WHQL and it would black screen often.

I went back to the 275.33 WHQL that I had been using and no more problems.

Britton30 another forum member is still using the 270.xx driver. The 275 or newer will not work on his system properly.

So you may want to go with an older Nvidia driver.
When you go to this page here > NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search the curtain that says "Recommended/Beta" select "ALL" and it will give you a complete listing.

I would consider trying the 275.33 WHQL . Just an idea.

Hope that helps.

Also follow Panais posting to include mini dumps. They need them.
