About 3-4 months ago, my GTX550ti crashed on me and couldn't work, I made a thread here previously looking for a solution to no avail, and so got a new card, a GTX670.
Now, my new card has failed, freezing the screen halfway through a session in BF3. Several restarts with BSODS (couldn't read the text fast enough to post anything useful here) later I decided to switch to the onboard Intel graphics to post here.
ASUS P8H67-M LE i7-2600 @ 3.40 GHz
12GB DDR3 1333Hz Kingston RAM
ASUS GTX670 Direct CU II
(what else do I need to put here? )
Anyway, an inspection with Device Manager shows that Windows has not detected the GTX670, and so any attempts at driver installation are unsuccessful (Nvidia updater cannot proceed).
Hardware IDs (from the Properties menu of the onboard Intel graphics):
The GTX670 is plugged in along with all auxiliary power cables, and the fans are spinning. I suspect maybe it blew a solder but I hope that's not the case, I do not want to have to buy/RMA a GPU every few months just because they can't do what they claim to do.
Ok I uninstalled Nvidia drivers and reset my BIOS and then for a while it seemed to work, the GPU was able to display on my primary display (TV, I'm typing on my backup monitor). However, after reinstalling Nvidia drivers (latest) and rebooting the same BSOD problem came up again.
The GPU also runs pretty hot even though it isn't even displaying anything. Help please!
