I was having gpu related bsod's on driver 312 i believe before i got rid of my 580's a few weeks back. Everything went away when i installed the amd drivers for my 7970+7950 setup.

"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

I'm getting a ton of these.

Also, do these have any relevance? They mention drivers and the kernel so I'm wondering of a connection.

I could try my 5850, however, that wouldn't really answer the question of what my problem is. I don't know if I'm experiencing a hardware or driver issue here. By switching back to my 5850, it could be either, seeing how I'd not only be using a different GPU, I'd be using a different brand with different software.

Buy a new video card, you know you want to.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Sounds like the issue I get when my 7870 decides it no longer likes my overclock. Like when it gave me a BSOD after 2 minutes in KSP after having played 3 hours of FEAR 2 and about 8 of Street Fighter 4 since my last restart, and then worked perfectly well after it finished booting back up and I told iturbo to load up my overclock again.

Though, yeah, a lot worse. Good luck with that. Maybe it's time for a replacement, grab a 760 and save a bit on power, if nothing else. Or one of the 7870s Newegg keeps putting on sale in the $150-160 area.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Set your core and mem clocks back about 50-100 MHz and see what happens.

Get a new graphics card. The defect rate for GPUs is hideously bad. In most other industries it would cause an uproar.

Welp, I just reinstalled windows to rule out the possibility of a windows problem, since it was mentioning stuff having to do with the kernel and crap like that. New windows install was fine...then I installed drivers....aaand it crashed.

So, it's definitely a hardware problem. I'm gonna try reseating it and if that doesn't work, I guess all I can do is go back to my 5850. I can't RMA it since it was my friend's old card that he gave to me.

Actually....what do you guys make of EVGA's warranty here? My friend gave me the card back in Dec. 2012. idk when he bought it exactly, but I MIGHT apply for a guest warranty here.

http://www.evga.com/support/warranty/

For original owners without a valid invoice and users that have not purchased the product from an authorized reseller, the warranty period is 3 years from the date that the product was shipped from EVGA's warehouse.


That only applies for products bought after July 1, 2011 though.

I forget exactly when my friend bought his 580, but he didn't have it for long.
