Card is a GTX 560 TI and this has been happening for a week or so.
Its never crashes while gaming, only when under little to no load. Surfing the web, listening to music, ect...
All of a sudden small artifacts will appear, and the driver crashes.
My card is overclocked to 950 Core Clock and 2100 Memory @ 1075 volts. The overclock is stable while stress testing in Heaven and EVGA OC Scanner, and has never crashed on me while gaming.
The only thing I can think of is that the card is cutting back its voltage too low while idle (950 v)? But I'm not sure why all of a sudden this would be an issue, it has been doing that since I got the card and like I said, this just started recently.
I am getting this problem. I have a GeForce GTX 285 and Windows 7 Home Premium. For the last two weeks the screen flickers after about five minutes of inactivity, then when I move the cursor it flickers and then the display driver crashes.
If I leave the computer for any length of time I come back to find it has rebooted to the BIOS screen. This must be a problem with the driver, not with the hardware because my PC is not overclocked and it has only started recently.
