Is my PSU too weak? Tags: Nvidia Graphics Last response: December 3, 2011 9:40 PM in Graphics & Displays Share eric_26 December 3, 2011 8:38:10 PM First of all sorry for posting two threads but I feel like my previous one of worded poorly. After putting in my new GTX560 I'm receiving a "nvlddmkm display driver has crashed and recovered." error when gaming. I've ruled out quite a few issues and this issue doesn't happen on my previous card, the 9800GT. Now I'm trying to rule out if my PSU as the culprit. So can this PSU run a GTX560? Could this be the cause of my crashing? (the max wattage is 585 its hard to see in the picture) Computer spec's are A15G v1 GTX560 Athlon 64 x2 6000+ Windows vista 64-bit More about : psu weak GreenDutchAlien a b Î Nvidia December 3, 2011 8:48:28 PM Should be fine. eric_26 December 3, 2011 8:53:45 PM So if my 9800gt works perfectly on my computer but my GTX560 causes my nvlddmkm driver to crash and my PSU is powerful enough for both cards, is my GTX560 a faulty card or could there be something else causing this?

Get the answer GreenDutchAlien a b Î Nvidia December 3, 2011 9:05:48 PM Did you remove the old drivers and try different driver versions for the 560 ? I did read some bad reviews btw for that psu bit still, theoraticly it should be powerfull enough. Found this about the nvlddmkm btw ; http://www.nvlddmkm.com/ eric_26 December 3, 2011 9:13:10 PM I have removed old drivers and even used driver removing software and have tried many different driver versions. I have also tried many online solutions to the nvlddmkm but I will read up on what you linked and post my results. Thanks GreenDutchAlien a b Î Nvidia December 3, 2011 9:16:01 PM Can you try the 560 in a pc from a friend or something ? eric_26 December 3, 2011 9:25:58 PM Yeah I will definitely try that eric_26 December 3, 2011 9:34:31 PM If we assume that the 560 does work on my friends computer, and none of the nvlddmkm solutions work for my computer, should I assume the issue is the power supply? Hmm..maybe I could find a friend to borrow their power supply if their willing, lol. GreenDutchAlien a b Î Nvidia December 3, 2011 9:40:05 PM Actually it would be best if it doesn't work at the other pc to, than you've got the simpelest solution ; faulty card. If it's working fine there the problem is def. more complicated. Trying the friends psu on your system would be a good next step then. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
