    GPU Problems! Please Help!

    So I installed a Nvidia 650 ti Boost and 600 wat power supply ( had 610 n 300 wat)

    "Nvidia Windows kernel mode driver, version 314.22 stopped responding and recovered successfully"

    This usually reloads WoW or crashes it and black screen for a good 5-10 seconds. Same happens for pretty much every game. Now it is at the point where my computer will now even reset


    Debating if I should return the card or what I should do. I tried underclocking the GPU Clock/ Mem Clock by 150 MHz. Any help would be awesome

    What manufacturer? Did you overclock it at all? did you make sure to completely wipe out old drivers and install new ones before/after installing the card? Have you tried re-installing drivers?

    I believe it comes overclocked.
    I did uninstall all the drivers and reinstalled and nothing changed

    That's not a 650 ti boost that's just a 650 ti, did you install the drivers for the boost version and not the standard TI model?

    That could be, but even if I used the disk and the same problem happened

    I would do two things.

    1) Return the PSU. It's a terrible brand/quality. A potato would be a better choice. (Not sure why you ignored our previous suggestions for PSU in your older post)
    2) Try using your old 300w PSU. It may push the wattage but it might be worthwhile to try.

    I was under the impression coolmax was a good brand.

    2) Wouldnt using a 300w PSU with this computer blow it up lol

    It is not. Period. You might be confusing "Coolmax" with "Cooler Master", which is a decent brand most of the time.

    Unless it's crappy, no. Your cpu likely only pulls about 30w, the GPU will likely only pull about 70w, and everthing else another 30w. I've run an Core 2 Duo E7500 + 460, which uses more power than your system on a meh 300w. I wouldn't recommend it being the final solution, but good enough for testing.

    I would definitely return the PSU, regardless of if it's the problem.

    Ill returned the PSU. You think I should return the GPU (could that be the problem?)

    Geez... The PSU might be (prolly is) not the best out ther ... but it certanly beats most of the kung-fu power supplyes out there . And if it is specced 600w it certainly can deliver @ least 400w which is better than his OLD 300W which is arguably lost some juice.... IT IS NOT THE PSU issue ...
    IT IS on the other hand GPU issue. Most prolly related to NVIDIA drivers. Did you uninstall old drivers completely , than did driversweeper cleanup afterward? Than reinstalled the newest NVIDIA drivers for your GPU (and yes - there are no different driveres for 650-650ti-650ti xyzc -> its all the same package)...
    If the answer is positive - than did you try uninstall yet again and trying 1 version older drivers , even 2-3 different ones. More often than not that solves the trouble... Did you update your DirectX ? And all other software related issues (before sending it back I would even go as far as a clean install of system with clean drivers etc just to make sure)
    It also MIGHT be a genuine hardware issue. A bad sample... It happenes ... But chances of that happening are slim ... I would first try out everything I mentioned

    Incorrect, simply put. You don't know what you're talking about. That 600w PSU is actually a 400w... across two rails. So its really more like 180w. That's how they get you. But it's not even about wattage. Its QUALITY that matters as well. Coolmax is notorious for crappy parts. Parts that like to explode, or just not function correctly.

    IT IS on the other hand GPU issue.
    It might be, but you don't know for sure. Please do not act like you do.

    Yeah, definitely return the PSU. I just helped a friend swap out that exact same PSU after it started making noises and then died.

    I'd probably recommend this card for the same price you got the first one.

    I'm aware of this.

    EDIT: To be clear, if I were to recommend a card for that price bracket, it would be that card. If in fact the card is the problem, I would just replace it, not look for a different one.
