Display adapter stopped responding

My graphics card has been working fine for about 10-15 days, then after i installed nvidia ntune i got a blue screen. After my computer recovered everytime
i start a game, it starts and then starts lagging really bad and freezes my computer. A few times i managed to recover and i saw the message
"Display adapter has stopped working but recovered". Im running windows 7 ultimate x64.

I have 2 inno3d GTX 285's running in sli.

I have the latest drivers so im sure its not that.
Overheating isnt a problem either, when lag starts its about 39-45C.

I cant play any games at all without freezing my computer.
I cant even run my Physx screensaver, it also freezes my computer :cry:

Does anyone know what could be wrong?

  1. 1. Uninstall all GFX drivers and programs
    2. Remove all things nVidia from registry using CCleaner
    3. Reboot
    4. Reinstall GFX drivers.
  2. Just tried that and i still get the same thing.
    This time after my computer crashed, after i turned it back on i went to check
    gpu temps. I found that gpu 1 was around 41C and gpu 2 was at about 61C.
    I also got this message after attempting to play SWAT 4:

  3. Alright i tried going back to windows xp 32 bit. Still didnt work...

    Then i got the idea to switch my gpus around. I switch them around and everything works fine now.
    It looks like one of my gpus failed. Ill go back to the shop and try to exchange it, or fix the problem.
