NVIDIA Windows Kernel 306.02 Driver Failed

I just purchased a new Nvidia 660ti and after installation of it, i seem to keep on getting this error. I'm getting it when sitting at desktop, playing games, and even just browsing the internet. This is getting extremely frustrating and i'm about to put my old GPU back into my computer if it doesn't resolve itself soon. I have tried uninstalling old drivers and reinstalling, and that doesn't seem to be helping either.

Intel Core i5 2320 3 GHz
8GB ram
Antec 700w PSU
1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD
120GB OCZ Vertex4 SSD
Windows 7 professional 64bit

  1. Well The 306.2 are beta drivers last time I looked (I have these istalled on a 670) Try going back to the WHQL Drivers. Also try reinstalling the drivers with a driver cleanup.

  2. I've tried both of those. I'm still trying to figure it out
  3. Update your mobo drivers, Windows, and BIOS.
  4. Just did all of these, and i'm still experiencing the same issue... It's so frustrating to have a brand new card like this not work with my pc...
  5. are you overclocking at all I got this error when overclocking at the high end.. That was when I knew I needed to stop LOL :P Try using Precision X or MSI Afterburner to underclock and see if it is more stable.. Might just be a bad chip.
