ASUS EN275GTX problems.

Greetings!
I have a problem with 275GTX. A little background - I was playing games on windows xp ( 8800GT video card ) and games would start sometimes to change colours, everything would get messed up.
So I thought it's video cards problem and bought a new Asus ENGTX275 and also bought windows 7 HP and isntalled the 64 bit ver. But there are days I experience problems - games get laggy, flash for a bit ( like screen turning black and normal again ) , sometimes even the cursor stops responding! And there are times I get this message ( bottom left corner ) saying : "Display driver stopped respondind and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 191.07 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
I'm running GA-P31-DS3L motherboard,
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40Ghz
4GB of ram
Hope someone can help me!

Cheers!

what about your PSU? brand? model?
check your card temps on idle and full load, then post again here... :)

I know that my PSU is 600W. I'm downloading SmartDoc and I'm going to check the temps, then I'll check PSU brand and post back.

Ok. I tried to run driver-sweeper, and downloaded video card drivers from two pages , one from a page offering ASUS video card drivers and second from nvidia.com and after being stuck at one point in installation ( not moving forward) A screen shows up saying that the system has not been modified. I can install drivers at all!!
EDIT: GPU temp on ildle is 48oC

your temps are good.
umm... now that's weird.
it happened only on one driver or just both of them?
January 17, 2010 3:17:55 PM

Both of those drivers didn't install.

did u run drive sweeper on safe mode?
and after that restart it?
January 17, 2010 3:49:13 PM

Yes! After it says that system has not been modified I reboot PC and the resolution is normal now and the NVIDIA folder is installed, but no NVIDIA control panel, and the screen flashes some times and shows that recovery message!

Your PSU is rated at 15A on the 12v rails and whilst I can't find an exact figure for the amperage draw of your card the GTX260 is rated at 15.9A and the 280 is rated at 17A so it might be your PSU that isn't up to scratch.

Hmm. But could ir really cause the problem that driver's wont install up?

If the card cannot initialise the 3D clocks during setup due to a lack of power then the driver will fail to install.

Thank you, I will try to investigate this further.

Took my pc to a service , just for checking, and came back home today, turned pc on, tried to run WoW, got a blue screen, on second attempt everything worked. I went on to check device manager, it said that my GTX275 is fine, I tried to update drivers through and but it didn't work out. So I'm still doomed, how can I check if actually my PSU can't handle it?

Can you borrow a PSU that has 20A or more on it's 12v rail?

No, I can't. I don't know anyone with that kind of PSU :/

I'm taking a shot in the dark when I suggest that it is a power problem, but looking at the 260's and 280/5's amperage requirements I really don't think you have enough on you current PSU.
January 22, 2010 7:17:31 PM

The problem is that the drivers wont install. I remember that this card came with some kind of extra features ( for overclocking or something ), well I saw em when I tested this video card on windows XP but something was going wrong ( I can't exactly remember but I don't think it was video card) , anyways, I ended up buying Windows 7. With Windows7 my mouse started to freeze but drivers were up , I remember installing them from the disk. Atleast I remember Nvidia Control Panel. Then one day I recall them missing. I searched nvidia.com and downloaded the latest drivers but they didn't install up and at one point I tried to get drivers from the disk up too but the same thing happened - It quickly loads to a one point and stops, the screen goes black and comes back at one point it offers me to install PhysX ,I choose language and nothin' happens, waiting, and then after like , maybe, about 5 minutes it says that nothing was modified, or going through windows 7 update it says that error occoured and timed out. And I also downloaded Drivers from ASUS website.
Now explained everything in complete details I guess.

Maybe you can advise me a PSU? As I don't know much about them.
January 23, 2010 5:35:57 PM

No, I don't live in US or near it. What basically should I look for? I probably could check some stores soon.

550w minimum and 25-30A+ on the 12v rail and at least one 8 or 6+2 pin PCIe connector.

By the way, does anyone know where I could locate nvidia control panel ? Today I checked my device manager and as I tried to update my drivers it said that they have been already updated, date 2010.01.11. which I find quite interesting, tho I can't find nvidia control panel.

If the drivers have not installed correctly, and that is what you have been saying all through this thread, then the control panel will not be available.

I guess... Just it's so confusing :/  Maybe I should get the card to the store I bought and ask them for replace or smth?

Or take the whole rig to the store and see if they have a PSU that is up to the job.
January 25, 2010 1:56:04 PM

I took it to the service again, they said that the drivers are OK but the NVIDIA is glitching and ain't going together, nothing about PSU ( They said that PSU is fine), does this make any sense? I'm really confused now. (Still thinking about new PSU)

Did they prove it was not the PSU by trying a more powerful one?
January 25, 2010 4:09:03 PM

I don't know. Gues I'm going to keep playing some games this week ( as i'm ill ) and test if everything is ok, and I'm going to keep on searchin for a new PSU, so probably I'll post here back! Thanks for replying :) 
I Appreciate!
