MSI GTX 660 TI PE Edition Driver Crash
« on: 16-December-12, 14:05:31 »

I have a problem. With my new video card MSI Geforce GTX 660Ti PE 2GD5/OC I got regularly the message "Nvidia kernel mode driver stopped responding". This happens when I play games like Far Cry 3 which runs the GPU constant at a very high load within a few minutes. Other game like Skyrim or the MSI Kombuster are running without problems.

If this error happens the screen gets completely black and then I'm back on the Desktop. Then I have to restart Windows to continue playing.

My old video card was a Geforce GTX 480 which was running fine, but with the vanilla design the card was very loud, so that I think my PSU is strong enough.

I've already tried all drivers from 306.97 up to 310.70 but the error didn't gone.

Should I RMA the video card or is this a driver or compatibility problem.

Please  add informations on your psu. From the infos in your post ram setup seems to consist of four separately bought sticks (no matched kit). Check if problem presists with using two sticks.

Also run Kombustor out of Afterburner and check temps under load: >>How to use MSI Afterburner<<

Sorry I don't have any Informations about my PSU it was a complete system from Acer, and there are no infos about it. The system was delivered with the Geforce GTX 480 and was connected with a 8(6+2)x and 6x power pin. The GTX 480 was running rock solid but it was very loud under full load, so the PSU must have enough Power.  The GTX 660 TI should consuming less power so this should not be the problem.

All 4 memory sticks are the same M378B5673EH1-CH9 Module. The system was delivered with this setup, which wasn't changed and with the GTX 480 there was no problem. Memory Tests are ok.

The temps are reaching with Kombuster 80° C under full load. I made a Kombuster run about 15 Minutes without problems or errors. With the same temps under full load the driver stopped responding after 2 - 5 minutes when I'm playing games.

Try completely removing the current drivers with >>Driver Fusion<< and after rebooting install the latest MSI driver: http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N660Ti-PE-2GD5.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

TO OP, please open up the side, and see what the info on the PSU says, and how long have you been running that PSU. Since I think Acer use generic ones, they degrade quickly over time. Also did you do a clean install?

I didn't make a clean intall of Windows. But I cleaned the drivers every time with driverfusion/driversweeper. If i put back the old GTX 480 the system run without problems again so Windows should not the problem.

Even the MSI drivers have the problem after a very short time under full GPU load the driver stopped responding and Windows recovers the GPU.

The system is 1,5 year old and the info label on the PSU says FSP750-80APG what I think should be a 750W PSU.

The strange thing is, why does the Kombustor runs without problems (GPU load, temps and power consumption are at max) and with games the driver stopps responding after a few minutes? Far Cry 3 or Anno2070 let the driver crash after about 5 minutes on the other side I did again a Kombuster run over 25 minutes and there wasn't any problems.

See if Acer offers a bios update for your machine.
