GTX Titan Z not working anymore
Hi! I have a 3 years old gtx titan z and since yesterday it stopped working as it should. After playing CS:GO for about 10 min the screen froze and i had to force a shutdown. After restarting the windows never loaded again and i thought that the hdd was the one causing the problem so i changed the hdd. I did a fresh windows install and everything worked perfectly till i got to the part where i had to install the driver for the titan z. I have downloaded the geforce experience and while installing the driver, after a while i get a black screen and nothing more, after 2 min the pc restarted by itself and again the windows wouldn't load. It would just get stuck at the loading screen and had to force a shutdown. I have reinstalled the windows 5 times and tried different ways to install the driver. I have tried 2 times with geforce experience, one time with windows updates and 2 times by downloading manually 2 different driver versions and got the same exact results. If i don`t try to install the titan z driver everything works just fine (besides that i can't play any games that requires the driver installed). I even changed the RAMs and nothing. I don`t wanna believe that the video card is done with because i can`t afford to buy another right now. So i`m wondering, did anyone else has or had this problem? Is it really the video card or could be the motherboard or the CPU? I have run some tests on video card, cpu and memory and everything passed ok. Here is my pc configuration: [url]http://www.dell.com/support/home/ie/en/iebsdt1/product-support/servicetag/2qld132/configuration[/url]

Bump this Just ran into this problem today after trying to update to the most recent driver after receiving several display driver failures. I now have been BSOD trouble shooting for 5 hrs + I removed the titan z atm and have my 1060 in the 1st slot and it works fine with the latest driver... Going to try the titan z in the other three slots , but from what i recall the titan z can only work in the first slot of the MB . Titan Z ....ohh Titan Z ohh hoowwww I thinkkk uuu hhateee meeee merry christmas

Does a titan z have sli stuff on one card like the 690, because my 690 also experiences driver failure but can still hear system sounds in fullscreen games.. please confirm.
