Hi guys, I've been having NVidia driver crashes, and the winmessages "NVidia display driver stopped responding and has recovered".
Now, I've been trying a lot of solutions, but still no results, till I came upon clocking the card by -25 mhz on core clock. So I've downloaded the required program, and I discovered that I'm unable of changing the core clock at all, for when I try the computer reboots all the time. Further more I've noticed that I'm not able to see\change the core voltage and the power limit, they are locked, even though in the settings they are unlocked. I think that this has something to do with the crashes. By the way my card is a GeForce GT 545.
Here's a picture

Core voltage is locked by Afterburner by default. There's no reason the computer should reboot when you change clock speeds. Crashes like that are usually caused by an unstable card. Taking the 25mhz off the core and memory usually fixes it. How are you unable to change the clock? It looks like the slider bars are lit, so they should be movable.

I already said that the Cove voltage is unlocked in the settings of Afterburner.

Indeed that's strange to me either, but as you say it "should not reboot". And you are right, they are movable but when I change clock speeds and click onto apply, it simply reboots and does not apply the changes.
And What do you mean by unstable card?

An unstable card is when the card randomly crashes due to one of the cores being overclocked way too far.
