Hi guys, my graphics card driver keeps crashing constantly no matter what version it is. I was using geforce 560 ti with 314.22 drivers on windows 8 and had no problem until today. From out of nowhere, driver started to crash on every game and even on desktop sometimes. Windows says "nvidia kernel mode driver is crashed and recovered". I installed the latest beta driver, still the same. Reinstalled windows, then did not install any drivers to try windows' own driver, still same. Installed latest whql, 320.49, still same. No matter what version it is, it keeps crashing and making games unplayable. I did not made any changes on my system, it just came out of nowhere.

I would be using a graph to monitor your voltages. Thinking of swapping GPU's.

if you haven't fiddled with any clock speeds or voltages (overclocking/turbo features) then it could be faulty hardware. do you know what power supply you have? do you know if your motherboard has another PCIE x16 slots you could try the card in?

First ty for the answer, as I said, did not make any changes to the system. There is another pci-e slot on my board but the card does not fit in there. My voltages are between 0.950 - 1.025v according to the hwmonitor and I guess they were always like that.
However, I did use 320.18 driver for at least a month which has reported killing tons of gpus and became scandal for nvidia. But never had issues with this version. Used this version on June then I switched back to 314.22 when finding out that 320.18 is causing massive problems with many people's cards. Can a problem related to that driver occur 1 month after?
