MSI 660 TI Power OC edition
« on: 22-November-12, 15:46:25 »

Hi MSI staff

I am having major issues with my 660 ti, the card is nearly 2 months old now. The fist month or so the card performed perfectly! The problem I am havving, "Nvidia display driver has stopped responding and has fully recovored." This happens whenever I play a game, after a hour or so the screen goes black for 5-10 seconds, and then the game I was running crashes to my home screen (Win 7 64bit). I have to manually forse the program to shut down after that and relaunch it. I am not sure if this is a fulty GPU, or if there is something wrong with my drivers. I have tried a clean install of drivers, tried lots of diffirent versions, the ons on the card, the one nvidia recomends (306.97) I even tried the latest beta drivers (310.55) no luck :( Please let me know if there is a possible fix for this problem.

Sorry, here is a more detailed post:

My pc is barely 2 months old now, everything is brand new, except for the HDD. I have spent countless hours researching the "nvidia drivers has stopped responding." So far I have not found a working fix yet.

1. I have tried increasing my TDR in the registry files in Windows 7, as this is the most common fix.
2. I have updated all my motherboards BIOS drivers.
3. I have done several clean installs of the drivers, first tried updating to the newest drivers on nvidia's website (306.97) , no luck, then I did another clean install and tried nvidia's beta drivers (310.55), no luck, then I  uninstalled the drivers yet again and installed the drivers I received on the disc with my 660 ti (304.48), no luck with that either.
4. The GPU is definitely not overheating, the temps are usually around 40-45 C when the crash occurs.
5. I have been running MSI afterburner today when the drivers stoped responding, unfortunately didn't take a screenshot but my base clock dropped to 0 and my power % also dropped to 0, it recovered though.
6. I used MSI afterburner to underclock my GPU to a reference 660 ti, same problem.

My pc specs are now in my signature thank you.

Have you checked if machine is otherwise stable with Prime95 or Intel Burn Test?
