I keep getting crashes on my computer where the screen will freeze, I can't move my mouse, and the audio loops constantly. After about a minute or two of waiting, it will come back and tell me that my NVidia drivers crashed. I used to have the 301.42 driver but I downgraded to 295.73 because forum users were saying that the 301.42 drivers were crashing. However, I'm still crashing....I crash mainly when watching YouTube, TwitchTV, and gaming. Can someone help and offer a solution? I really really want to get this crashing to stop so I can go back to playing Starcraft...

I already posted this on several forums and no one could help me. I figured if anywhere was the place to go, it would be here. This problem has been plaguing my computer for a month now and all I have now is a $1200 Facebook machine. Please, please help.

My system:

1 x EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support FPB Video Card

Are you talking about the "your display driver has crashed and restarted" error?

If so, the only real advice I can give is to re-install windows, it's a quite common problem not only with nvidia but with amd cards too.

I used to have that problem and it turned out that the GPU was not getting enough power. Your PSU is powerful enough to support the card, but check if all the cables are plugged in good. Also, are any of the other components overclocked?

My PSU is 620W, the card says "minimum 500w." My PSU is powerful enough. I opened the case yesterday, everything is plugged in well. Nothing is overclocked.

In reply to the other post, I get a message saying the Nvidia drivers stopped working properly and restarted, yes. Do you think reinstalling windows is the only solution? I backed up my drive just in case.

There are numerous forums dedicated to the issue, no one thing works for everyone. I would suggest a fresh install.

on my sabertooth system i found that it was the amount of ram and firefox (32) bit. that with flash there was a memory leak and the broswer would run out of ram and lock my system up. I found that when i switched to a 64 bit browser and 64 bit flash...the memory leaks stopped. also check that your ram running the right speed and timing..sometime tweeking it in the bios fixes some issues. also check with memtest that you dont have a bad stick of ram.

I use Google Chrome, how do I know if my version is 64 bit?
How do I know if my RAM is running at the right speed/timing? Where do I find that information?

A fresh WINDOWS install.

Your problem is not memory related, it's a graphics driver crash.

You can check speed and timings in bios or by using cpu-z.

Windows re install fixed this issue. It's unfortunate that it had to come to that. I hope nobody else has to deal with this issue..
