Did you clean the drivers from your AMD card in safe mode before you shut it down and installed the Nvidia?

That I did my good sir, still having the issue just ran out to my computer storage room and grabbed the driver disk remember that my old 6870 only would install the first time with the asus driver disk maybe this Asus 670 is just buggy like it was that way.

If you can run a GPU benchmark in Linux or a separate Windows install, you can pretty much guarantee it's a driver issue.

Looks like I am SOL time to try a reload if that fails nvidia will again be on my hated list and I will go get a 7950

I had a crash issue with my 670 but it would get into windows first... i found the GPU tweak software was the cause..

It is possible that you got unlucky and it's just a bad card... Which can happen with any type of card from any manufacturer..

If possible try it in a different box.

... 4 machines and 2 reloads I got a bad card... I will advance swap for one more but am really disappointed this was supposed to be Nvidia's saving grace for me... I was going to swap from my 6970 and almost 6 solid years of ATI/AMD only love over to all Nvidia in my house but if I get another one back failed. I will never look back:doh:

Dammm. Was going to suggest driver sweeper in safe mode due to similar issue but if card is bad card is bad.

Soullessone21 June 14, 2012 02:57 PM

good plan, I tried Drive sweeper too :thumb: great minds think alike but sadly just DOA new card is here going to try it in 3 hours haha

Ended up being my server, it wont play nice with any Kelper cards, and for some reason Nvidia cards only play at half power but when I put a AMD card in it runs way smoother so back to my 6970 for now:) still a great card though
