  2. Reinstall tf2 and makeshur ur running latest drivers

    but i have same problem in another games too. but yesterday after posting this i tried to install diver and reeboot my computer. after many times it worked! . and now i have same problem again. i don't think that the problem is in the drivers. does it have something to do with bios?.

    i dont think that its about the drivers
  7. is ur bios up to date?
  8. What PSU do you have? You never mentioned that, there can be issues on system load as well. First of all upgrade your bios and load optimized defaults so that can be eliminated. Then run aida at full load for an hour, see if it breaks down or not. Also load coretemp and post your temp readings to us while aida is running
  9. yes what kind of power supply do u own sir.
  10. Yes why double post?
  11. Well did you do a clean reinstall of drivers? ideally uninstall the nvidia drivers, use driversweeper then do a clean reinstall of one of the newer drivers
  12. I believe he did

    I will try that. i will give you more information in Sunday. about temperatures and memory usage


    so this is correct tool?
  14. Yep Driversweeper in safe mode after uninstalling the Nvidia Drivers, tick the clean installation option when you're installing the Nvidia drivers

    Fiddling with BIOS should be your last resort

    sorry my bad English but did i understand you correctly

    So i run pc in safe mode. then i uninstall Nvidia drivers with that tool.
    is it good if get newest drivers to memory stick and install them form there?
  16. Uninstall Nvidia drivers from control panel and/or with Ccleaner

    Boot into safe mode and run driversweeper (the video talks about AMD but Nvidia follows a similar process)

    Then download the latest driver (or which ever one you prefer) from the Nvidia website and do a "clean" installation of the driver
  17. Do a windows reinstall mate if this is not resolved yet. Might save you heaps of time
  18. That would, reinstalling everything and getting back up to snuff should take around 2-3 hours at most, it would be your last resort

    so is this correct drivers for my ASUS GeForce GTX 660 OC DCII 2GB GDDR5

    https://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GTX660DC2O2GD5/#support
    do i download all?
  20. From here, don't fiddle with the video card's BIOS or frankly all the other stuff that's on Asus' site for now

    Just download from Nvidia directly

    http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
  21. Yes download as Roland said if everything fails reinstall windows

    Looks good? but my GPU usage is always 98% is that normal and game are still laggy
  26. temps look good. its also possible the card is having issues, if continues ur allowed to send it back for replacement. could be an option if nothing else works

    That's certainly odd, I'd probably set my modem to factory default and do the quick setup again

    Either that or you may have a background program constantly connected to the net and operating whilst you're in games

    A conflict between your modem and GPU? that's quite a rare sight, and glad that the card itself is good since it's at 99% usage
