I purchased the Card 15 days ago.When playing games the screen suddenly freezes and minimizes to desktop and remains unresponsive.I have to kill the process using task manager.sometime a message shows "Display driver stopped responding and successfully recovered.This happens at random times between 5-40 minutes after i start playing a game.The Games I've faced this problems are NFS Most Wanted(2012),Sleeping Dogs,Assassins Creed 3,Tomb Raider,Call of Duty Ghost,Max Payne 3..I ran the tests in OCCT and FurMark with no errors.The Problem only happens in game.
Things I've tried to solve this:
1.Installed the latest driver after using driver sweep.had the same problem with the previous version.
2.Overclocked,Underclocked,Changed the power option in CCC.Increased the fan speed using Trixxx.
3.Monitored the temperature of the Cpu and GPU under full load.Its not a over heating issue.
4.Disabled the card's audio driver.
5.Tried the "force constant voltage" and "disable ulps" option in Trixxx.
6.installed windows again.So it is not happening because some virus or Malware.
7.Updated the bios of the motherboard and chipset driver.
What could be the problem??
