<><> DRIVER 334.89 Driver installed. <><>
OS = Windows 7 ( I don't know what version )
This Machine also has an over sized Heatsink. (Cooler Master)
All the tests from (Geeks3D FurMark - GPU stress test and OpenGL benchmark.) came back 100% in the green. Its my driver that fails me.

My problem is When playing any game Graphic intense My driver tells me it encountered an error and has reset it self to correct the issue. then it goes on to tell me that it has in fact corrected the issue. When in REALITY my screen is completely locked up, cant move the mouse or anything. If I sit there for a few mins it will let me move the mouse about 1 inch. then lock up again. Like its running 1000x slower than normal. I've tried the newest driver from Nvidia, and I've tried the last 4 or 5 down the list in that order. All seem to have the same problem. so I'm starting to think nvidia was a bad decision or I'm doing something wrong, I restart after each driver install and I'm getting them straight from the nvidia website. I Feel like I've done everything correct, So I'm reaching out to the real pro's "Also This rig is about 3 months old" still fresh out of the box basically. Built from the ground up.

    Have you tried doing a clean install on the Drivers? If not try it.

  2. underclock your card slightly, or reinstall drivers?
  3. I will try the clean install, Thank you very much.
    also It never was over clocked to begin with. Not sure if that matters though
