Gtx 460 freezing crashing
  1 / 52    
Hi, I am having problem with the drivers. I installed from cd and also from the website. Both give me problems after reboot or after sleep mode. Sometimes it randomly freezes during normal browsing as well. I am currently without any drivers and it works fine, but looks like crap.

Can someone suggest any programs or anything to help me out?

I have tried driver cleaner and still doesn't work.
Also read a lot of others having the same problem.
Thanks

So I followed the steps in the link u sent me. But I still have the same problem.... I don't get it.. Even without the drivers it now seems like my pc freezes while I'm browsing. Everything seems to be compatible and the CPU is at Max 40celcius... Pc freezes then I need to do a power restart. If someone is having the same problem or resolved their issues. Please share.

Thanks in advance

The card ran fine for 2 days.. earlier today my PC froze, then froze again, then froze in safe mode and it just kept getting worse.
Had to power start every single time, no errors or anything, just a total freeze.

So i swapped the 460 with my dying 8800 GTX, now the PC is running stable.. looks like i'll be returning the 460 tomorrow, if it was a driver issue the PC wouldnt freeze in safe mode..

Its a F'd up problem to troubleshoot if you dont have a spare card.

It's a shame to see so many ppl facing this issues with the 400 series gfx card.

Are you using Win7 64bit as well ?

I'm currently advising most of my gamer community to stop purchase on 400 series till this issues sorted out. This card is not cheap, costs a lot
from where I stay. So far 8 out of 10 gamers I know are facing the same issues, the other 2 were using WinXP and they are running fine on it.

Hi,

I recently purchased the GTX 460 1Gb and have installed the latest drivers (258.96). At first it seems to run like a dream, ran the benchamark in Batman: Arkham Asylum and got an average of 55fps. That game plays awesome, however if I run Battlefield Bad Company 2 then between 2 and 30 mins into the game the graphics on the screen rip to shreds (very trippy graphics) and the game freezes. I can sometimes quit out but other times I have to reboot. I have made sure all the BIOS, mobo and chipset drivers are all up-to-date.

I see that other people are also having problems with this card/game. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this being looked at by Nvidia?

PC specs are below:

OS: XP SP3
DirectX ver: 9c
CPU: Intel E6400
Mobo: Gigabyte GA965 DQ6 (rev 3.3)
RAM: 4Gb Corsair XMS2 800Mhz DDR2

My next step is to upgrade the OS to Win7 so I can utilize DX11. Will this even help? /confused.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':confused:' />

Honestly, there is nothing that can be done. I have constant driver crashes and resets during games, even on stock clocks, and on almost every game. We may have to wait it out til new drivers are released.

Im running a 460gtx 1gb at stock with the new drivers on win 7 x64 and have no problems what so ever. only problem i had was windows wanted to install the older drivers. it would load it over the newer drivers and would cause issues. finally i let win install the drivers then installed the latest drivers over them and now it works like a dream. my 460 never runs over 61c and idles at 31c in my haf932 case. I also bought the sparkle brand with the reff cooler. only bc evga hadn't released theirs yet.

I just recently purchased the Gigabyte GTX460 1GB. Same issue. Worked OK for a couple of days then started intermittently freezing both in windows and during game play. Latest 258.96 drivers installed. Got worse and worse over the space of 2 days until it was freezing even during Windows loading. It also freezes in safe mode. Put 9600GT back in no issues. Put GTS 250 in no worries. Is this a driver issue or hardware related? Given the card was working spot on for a couple of days it's strange. RMA?
