    Well, i was just playing world of warcraft flying off to do a quest on my huntard when my computer froze up for about 20 seconds then flashed the screen and said this

    [​IMG]

    I have the GV-N560OC-1GI graphics card and have read on some forums that a lot of people are finding them faulty, but with this being the first freeze i have had since i got it do you think there is a good chance mine is becoming faulty?

    What would be the best stress test to run on it to see if it crashes again?

    One crash means very little.
    Monitor temps and see if anything needs attention.

    That crash can be from a lot of things.

    Well the card gets a max of 70c load in OCCT and seems stable, i left crysis on all night and it was fine when i got up. I'm overclocking it atm to test if it's right at the edge of stability and it seems fine at 950MHz with 1050mV still getting about 70c max load with a slightly tweaked fan profile.

    I did a bit more reading and some people are saying it's just a buggy bios and setting the speeds manually can fix it so i might just leave it manually set to stock and see if it happens again.

    Does it happen when the card isnt overclocked?
    Is anything else overclocked?

    Had the card running at an overclock of 950 core, 1900 shader and 2200 mem 1050mV for a couple of hours and it's doing fine (it crashed when the card was stock), it passed 20 min of OCCT gpu test and wow doesn't have the random graphics glitches i was getting once every 15 min or so for 1 frame either now. I'l knock it back to stock soon manually and leave it there, if it does it again i will post back.

    I get this error also but not for games just everything else. My screen will suddenly flicker to black for a second and go back to normal and I get that same pop up recovery crap, it's very annoying and I have yet to fix it and I haven't overclocked my card at all. Ive done a search on Google and didn't find anything helpful. I'm about to do a format because there seems to be nothing else that's working, if that doesn't help I'll have to rma the card.

    I had the same problem with the EXACT same card - MSI GTX 460 Cyclone 768MB. This can happen because of improper placement or cards design. This card doesn't have a shroud nor a backplate to support the card leans a little but down.

    So I put a PCI cover under PEG cables (yeah, kinda strange, but I couldn't find any other solution) to support it and now it works fine.

    its not your card, its a driver issue. i use to get it with 275.27, 275.33 and 275.50. i went back to 270.61 and have not had a single crash since. give it a shot.

    I've had the same thing happen to me on a Dell laptop with an Nvidia GPU and it was fixed with a driver update. I'm currently at 267.76 and will happily stay there. :)

    I have not had a single driver crash in months.

    Hm, the fact i could overclock made me think it couldn't be the card. If it happens again i will go back to 270.61 or something.

    I figured out that the Display Driver crash for me was caused by LSPM (Link State Power Management).

    It can be found in the Energie saving functions, once i disabled it the issue was gone.

    I changed all my power options in windows this morning so i have no idea if it was off or on but when i looked just now it's off. I think it's fine now.

    God i get the weirdest problems, anyone know why my Xonar DX has a buzz going at the same fps as games (and only with games open) through the mic input ONLY with my GTX 560 ti and not with any other graphics cards? Has happened since i got my 560 and is annoying but i don't think it's something i can really RMA the card for, or is it? It does it on 3 motherboards i have tested on with the GTX 560 Ti and the Xonar DX..
