No mate there is no specific Giga driver the driver you need is the one Iquoted earlier (unless I am very wrong) the GPU brands use the NVidia base.

The board ones are here

Just for info I hardly ever used the Gigabyte disk when I built my Sandy Bridge because the drivers for example were so far behind the current ones. I always use the manufacturers site as the Windows feature in my humble opinion is a waste of space.
Plus the disk also has a ton of unwanted crapware that I personally (I don't know about anyone else) I do not need as it screws things up.

Hasve you checked out the temps too yet?? if not do so with Speccy Speccy - Download and it might be worth checking out the PSU as well
PSU - Jump Start
Voltage Rails - Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications (for reference and info) I would be checking the volts on the different leads and this


Now as for the slots to clean them use astrip of old credit card about 1/2 inch wide nip the corners off one end - preferably round them offhold apiece of thin lint free cloth over the end dab on some form of alcohol - isopropyl alcohol (what we swab the skin with before an injection) is good and GENTLY swipe along the slots.

This can also be done for the GPU slot/s.

You may think this a lot of trouble to go to but it will eliminate some other probabilities even though they may look unrelated.

Sorry for letting this thread get cold. I've arranged to test my graphics card with my friend's computer for when the holidays start to confirm whether it's my graphics card causing the problem. It's likely my PSU actually causing the problem; I occasionally got full-on crashes while playing PlanetSide 2 and one unusual crash while watching Youtube prior to the system restore. Serves me right for being a cheapskate and buying a 500w PSU
