What OS are you on and is it 32bit or 64? Have you tried the drivers straight from nvidia? Fully uninstall the zotac drivers plus any others that might be present from your previous card, then install the most recent drivers straight from nvidia. Make sure to pick the correct OS on the drop down menu when downloading your driver. If it still doesn't work try the beta driver.

Check for a BIOS update for the motherboard, and just to rule things out, try running on 4gig of RAM if it's on two sticks. Try both sticks one at a time (again if you have two of them hehe).

If you can, try the card in another computer.

I've seen bad cards cause crashes soon as the real drivers are loaded. I am thinking if you start the system in Safe Mode, it's stable correct?

What was your old card? An amd? If it was try to uninstall the amd drivers with driver sweeper. If not drive sweep your nvidia drivers and re install again.

it is entirely possible the card is DOA, you won't know for sure until you try it in a friends system though. :/

run restore to a date before you update from zotac website or date before installing graphic card.

and restart, next install driver from cd.
