Gtx 275 display driver keeps crashing

my nvidia gtx 275 display driver is always crashing when i play world of warcraft, the settlers heritage of kings etc
i have uninstalled the drivers and re-installed them i have used driver sweeper to remove all trace of the drivers and installed again

it started after i installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit (was 32 bit)
i have only overclocked the ram by about 140 mhz (about a month ago havent has cause to do it since cause the card is bottle necked by my cpu and stuff) using evga precision i use evga to controll fan speeds on the card (i have the fan speeds set to be 10% faster at each 10 degree level from its basic settings
the cpu is overclocked by 15% (was 20% but the card messed up airflows so it started to get a bit too hot) from 3.2 ghz to 3673.3 mhz the ram is 2gb ddr 3 1066 mhz (appears to be running at 1224.4 mhz)

world of warcraft still has 2.4 gb to download of the game

card readout from speccy is as follows
(i dont remember the make other then it says twin frozr on it >_< i brought it from a friend after he went and brought 3 of them and attempted crossfire (or is that the ati version) but his psu wasnt good enough)
if you want specs to do with other parts of the computer then i can supply them

More about display driver crashing
  1. oh the driver is version 285.62 (there is a beta driver out 285.63)

    i havent yet tried without the cpu overclock i shall look into that while i wait for a reply

    and i did get a bsod as well yesterday

    *** STOP: 0x00000116 (0xFFFFFA8001E064E0,0xFFFF8800F1D09C8, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

  2. Hi

    Can you list your full system spec's including your PSU's make and model?

    Do you get the same issue if you set the CPU and GPU back to stock settings?, sometimes system instability can cause drivers to fail.
  3. the cpu overclock can take a day of p95 torture test so i took it as stable :/

    i am just updating windows to service pack 1 - that just failed :/

    the psu is a 750 watt alpine switching mode power supply
    the box documentation and sticker on the psu dosent appear to tell me much more about its model
  4. the sp1 install failed again :/ i am going to try downloading the package from microsoft

    is what i need to download the 903.2 mb file windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe?
  5. right... took off the overclock and it crashed a few times (graphics driver crashed not the computer))
  6. should i try re-installing windows?
    or even go back to 32 bit?
  7. Do you know someone with a PC you can test your GTX275 in, I'd test the card before re-installing Windows if you can.
  8. i have my scrapbox... but that would require swapping the psu as well :/ and i think my little brother has broken it because he says when he turns it on it dosent display anything but he said he put my 8400gs into it turned it on still nothing took it out and it worked <.< he owes me money for that one

    i think i got someone i can ask...
  9. oh... the scrap box has a 32 bit processor and is running on windows 8 32 bit... i dont think it would give the same results
  10. Yeah it would be best if you could test the card in another 64bit environment
  11. i know the processor is fine as the computer plays universal centuary gundam online ok (the current client on the private server (the company the hosted it shut the game down in 2007) uses only processor and no graphics card) at about 200 fps in the desert and about 20-30 in the citys (the current client does not do graphics very well as the citys are poor quality but hopefully that will all change with ucgo remake)
  12. I recently replaced my GTX 275 and it was crashing to the desktop or giving me black screens while surfing the Internet every so often (once or twice a week). I believe it was a driver issue so I tried the latest beta and it didn't happen for a few weeks. If you said the beta didn't work, then try an older driver that you know is stable to confirm that the issue is driver related and not some other hardware issue.
  13. i havent tried the beta :o how do i actualy get to it?
    (im currently here http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us)
  14. never mind i found it but i think i will forget beta for now and go with the 280.26 driver
  15. i think i might actualy re-install windows anyway because sp1 isnt installing and i had that problem with 32 bit windows and it fixed after a re-install
  16. Just an FYI but I have the 285.62 drivers as well and it will crash about once a week. Google search of the driver version pretty much speaks for itself. I would say download the beta but personally I steer clear until they are official.
  17. under 32 bit i did occasionaly get a crash but it was rare
    i installed the past driver and it still crashed i am now installing windows again so i can attempt to install sp1
  18. completely re-installed windows and installed all updates then installed graphics driver
    it crashed again :(
    i will install 32 bit windows again :/
  19. could my problem lie in the fact i havent installed any drivers appart from the graphics one? (no motherboard drivers etc)
  20. right fixed it
    turned out the factory settings were not stable so i had to underclock the card a bit
    something tells me this card is on its way out :(
  21. That's a possibility, maybe your not supplying enough voltage to support the OC?
  22. it wasnt overclocked it was on factory settings and my psu is 750 watt :/
  23. I wasn't able to overclock my GTX 275 past the factory eVGA settings unless I tweaked with the voltages. I think those cards are very sensitive to clock speeds.
  24. how do you change the cards voltages (is it in the bios or something? as evga says nothing about voltage :/)
  25. You can use eVGA Precision to mess with the voltages.
  26. the crashing appears to be getting worse

    could my cpu overclock be the problem? its overclocked via base clock not multiplier
    i have completely removed the overclock for now to see if there ar
  27. I also have GTX 275 and is crashing everytime I play games which uses the full power of the card after some time. This is because the card is overheating. This is the second Nvidia card which is giving me problems within 4 years. Better buy an AMD graphics card next time.
  28. well i cleared out the heat sink (it was completely clogged up with fluff - like that when i got it as i brought it second hand from a friend) as it hit 90 degrees C while playing tera (didnt crash for some reason...) and for testing i took the underclock off one day while i went to games workshop and left my brother playing assassins creed brotherhood and he didnt report any crashes

    Ok, it seems like you have the same problem i had. I thought that maybe i just had to overclock it a bit, but not, the solution was the complete opposite. Under "nvidia Controlpanel", go to "performance" and then "device settings".
    There you should see "current setting" as a tab, and in the middle of the screen "clock speeds". For me it worked by adjusting the numbers to this:
    Graphics clock: 501MHz
    Memory clock: 864MHz
    Processor clock: 1073MHz
    But it took me a while to find the right numbers, just play around with the numbers a bit if it doesnt work, and remember that nvidia control panel sucks, so it wont save your settings no matter what, you will need to do this everytime you load your PC.
    (you can just save a profile, and then load it.)
    Maybe its the PSU thats not working right i dont know, hope it helps :)
