Nvidia graphic card driver keep crashing

I have an Asus Nvidia GTX 550 Ti which was working well for about 8 months? Until recently when there was several driver crashes. I dont really know how it happens, it just happens randomly when im browsing the web, or doing any other stuff, even when im not playing games. I tried a few methods to solve this problem but didn't work. Here are the stuff that i did :

- Reinstalling windows (Formating harddisk)
- Reverting driver from the latest one to the one that came with the graphic card in the box.
- Uninstalled driver and reinstalled it (fully).
- Cleaning the dust off the gpu's fan.
- Cleaning the dust off my cpu's fan.

Really quite annoyed right now :/. anyone knows the problem? Advices are greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Sorry if I posted on the wrong section!

  1. Solution would depend upon what BSOD stop error was and / or what it says in Event Viewer.

  3. I am also having the same problem. Also running Windows 7. I have a GeForce 210 which has been running fine for months and in the last week it just crashes. Sometimes the screens just flash black for a second then recover, other times, it blue screens and then reboots

    i still cant find any solutions yet, im just switching back to Intel HD 2000 for now :/ The crashes are annoying.

    If the video card requires seperate power, make sure the power cable is connected and snug. If it is, your power supply may be insufficient or failing.
