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.
I am experiencing the EXACT same symptoms after a recent upgrade, audio glitches, then screen locks up and goes black, then a message that the driver has stopped working.

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.

Having a similar issues; after updating my GTX 660 Drivers, the screen will go black for a few seconds then come back on. No error messages or anything. Trying to do the TDRKey fix, but am not experienced enough with this to know what I am doing. The link does not give enough info of where I actually make the edits.

I also tried this Black Screen After Installing Latest Driver for Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 Ti on WIndows 7 [Solved] - Asus - Graphics Cards to no avail. Any help on this would be deeply appreciated.

Win 10 64bit

Better late than never - maybe this will be helpful for those, who are googling it now:

Had similar issues with my GTX660 - GPU crashed (screen went black for few seconds, sound freeze, sometimes restart needed to resolve, sometimes it just went back to normal) - what I did was in MSI Afterburner just turn the GPU Power to 110%, thats it! Problem gone! Well, at least for me! Hope this helps!
