  3. So my nvidia driver problems returned but went away when I installed beta driver
10 months ago#1
So as some of you remember, I had a problem with nvidia drivers on my new 760 SC I got from EVGA that I suspected was hardware, where they'd crash on desktop while doing hardly nothing at all (but would go for hours in games with few problems....I think I only had one game where the driver crashed and looking at the error it was highly likely that that was a symptom of that particular error, since it was common a few months ago in said game). I thought i fixed it by reseating the card and making sure everything was properly plugged in, but on friday, the issue returned after i played some titanfall and then got some lunch. It started crashing every few minutes again, and checking the connections again didnt do crap.

Since I was on the 337.88 official drivers, and this is the most up to date driver that's official, I downloaded the beta drivers and the problem went away and it's been fine the last few days. Is it possible that the WHQL drivers were just not agreeing with my computer properly? I never used those drivers on my old 580, so i can't compare. Is something wrong? Just paranoid.

So as some of you remember,


Oh yeah I remember you. I wrote down your particular problem in my handy dandy GameFAQ's board users' problems journal, which I keep constantly updated.

And on a serious note, it happens. Drivers can be messed up. I remember a driver from NVIDIA really messed up my graphics a while back, so I just downgraded to an older version and I didn't have any problems. Not saying that's the same case with you, but if the problem seems to be fixed, then it's probably fixed.

Drivers can be crazy from one version to the next. Typically after a card has been out a few months the gains you'll see from version to version of drivers is minimal so once you find a stable set of drivers don't worry that you're missing out by waiting a few releases down the line till you find another stable version.

I remember on my 560ti I had up till January there hadn't been a stable driver released that didn't cause complete system freezes when watching videos. Though honestly it wasn't a big deal because the drivers weren't going to be able to push that thing any harder at that point.

It cost me nothing except the shipping to send my dead 580s back to EVGA, so I can't complain.

Just had a crash in titanfall due to materialsystem_dx11.dll and it crashed the display driver. I think that's normal since I've seen many people with nvidia cards report the same.

EVGA precision records my GPU usage at the time of crash literally going up to like 4893928929% or something crazy like that, so I'm guessing that's a software glitch that crashed the driver, nothing serious.

You have the worst luck.

Have you considered a new hobby... Crocheting perhaps.

Maybe you'll have the occasional sweater not turn out properly... At least it's not an expensive video card.

Yarn costs like... 3 bucks a ball?

Just an idea

At least I can read the menus in my version of titanfall. And play at 50 ping.
