I am unsure really what is going on. I have an EVGA GTX 285 2gb, Core i7 920, 12gb DDR3 1600 and a 750w PSU. Just starting today I started having lots of problems. From Nvidia driver crashes to videos and games becoming big jumbled messes and crashing. I have cleared drivers, reinstalled drivers, tried older drivers and cleaned out the card of all dust. SpeedFan says the card is running at 50c idle. I have no clue what is wrong but it is bothering me greatly. Since messing with the drivers I no longer get driver crashes but everything else persists.

Shortly after posting this my drivers crashed and recovered.

Can anyone help me with my problem.

First of all,you aren't allowed to post your e-mail in public forums, i edited your post.
As for your problem,does it always give you the "Driver has stopped working and has recovered" error when it crashes ?

When the drivers crash or a game crashes, yes. They don't always crash when watching videos sometimes the video just gets all grey, green and choppy. Its weird though, watching a video on VLC doesn't go bad at all. Even 1080p videos.

Try your card in different PC, if the same problem occur then you got a bad card there...

I doubt if it helps,because in almost all problems i have seen regarding the "Display has stopped working..." has lead the users to RMA it or get a newer card.
