Hi chaps, just finished installing my new GTX 660 and have started having issues. (500w PSU)
Basically, everything was running fine, the system was running ArmA 2 smoothly then it booted me to the desktop twice. At this point, the monitor began giving me the pink screen of death, changing colours rapidly and flickering a distorted image of the desktop display.
Upon reboot, the desktop image from startup was badly distorted, and the random colouration continues. Intermittently, the system drops back to a normal display for a few seconds advising me that "vidia Kernel Mode Driver has stopped responding and has recovered" before going back to flickering random colours and distorting the image. I tried uninstalling everything then reinstalling, (Not including the HD Audio elements) but apart from running everything in safe mode, or running the card as a SVGA adapter, the problem persists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like you just got unlucky and got a faulty card.
