Nvidia Gtx 460 Gpu CRASHING!

Hey Guys, My Gtx 460 constantly brings up the error message at the bottom right of my window saying "display driver has stopped working..."The driver is 285.62. Anyways, i have seen other people have this problem and no one can seem to fix it. Last week i had the problem very bad, so i reinstalled windows and everything. Now after 2 days of a clean install, im having the crashes again. I ran furmark, and after it was done, exiting out of full screen, it crashed.

I would like to get help before skyrim is released this friday,

so can anyone help me?

ps. i've done this

-reinstall windows
-reinstall drivers

during furmark, Gpu temp was 76C

  3. I'm using the newest 285.xxx Nvidia drivers on an EVGA 460 SE clocked to 740/1480/1900 no problems for the past month or so. 1920X1080 res.
    Didn't see any difference in benchmarks between the 285.xxx and the previous 280.xxx drivers. Temp seems OK. Maybe the card is getting 'tired'. My card has lasted 30 months so far.
  4. Those rosewills are not reliable at all, i would scrap that hunk of junk and get something like a cosair silver+ or gold+. At least have a bronze+ certified one.

    Aside from your opinion of them being "junk" Would that actually cause the problem of Graphics card drivers crashing?
