Make sure the card is seated correctly.

 

Also make sure the slot itself isn't bent or damaged.

Incorrect, it does have a lot to do with the new nVidia drivers, there are many reports the new betas are more geared towards the 700 series, older cards have trouble. I had nothing but problems with my 670s so i reverted back to last released stable and its no longer a problem. This was on a fresh install, so no it wasnt some bitcoin malware.

 

Yea it seems to be the drivers and Internet explorer for me. I turned off GPU rendering and did a Windows 8 refresh (clean install but saves my personal files and Window store apps) and I still get a video card restarts when using internet explorer only. Downloaded Chrome and no problems. Ill try using the 314.22 drivers on my 560.

It's the drivers, I had to roll back 314.22 on my eVga GTX 560, kept getting errors or crashes on a clean install with nothing but Windows updates and the nVidia drivers.

I have used all driver starting from 290 version to 320 one. All gave errors. Only after I removed the malware, the speed and the crashes were resolved.

 

Card -> Nvidia 540m

Obviously if once the meantime you installed some suspicious software or driver from douche site then this could happen, but for us, only 320.xx is giving such ridiculous errors.

Any advice?

 

For the record, 326.80 Beta is less pathetic then other 320.xx driver, and it hangs my PC less frequently and shows mouse corruption but it still hangs and sometime mouse started to get intermittent issues in scrolling and moving as well.

The reasons can be plenty. I gave the solution to my case which had nothing to do with the drivers. I have updated drivers on my Ubuntu install as well and it works well.

 

Here were the symptoms in my case

1. Firefox Crash - You are simply looking at the screen and it goes away

2. Nvidia drivers crash

3. Intermittent Mouse hang ups, scroll hang ups and then resuming automatically

4. Observed slow speed of the system

 

I scanned and removed the malware with some added practices of my own like completely emptying ~temp folder from Ubuntu install, as windows could not empty it and then removing the startup entry as well like stated earlier.

 

You can try though!

Just tried the new v327.23 drivers for my GTX460. Machine hard locked afer about 10mins playing WoW (reset button time!)

 

Went back to 314.22 and all is well again. Looks like 314.22 are gonna be the latest version to support the older GPUs.

I got so annoyed with the issues with the NVIDIA drivers... I have ditched them a bought a AMD card. And now my PC works perfectly and so do games.
