    Hi

    I've built the following computer last week, and every time i try installing a drive for any graphics card i get the below message. (I used my friends AMD 7970 and also get the same problem)

    I keep getting the following error message: "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version (any) stopped respending etc"

    Again, i only get this once i try installing the drives for any card.

    Graphics card: Gigabyte GTX 680 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card
    Chip:Intel Core i7 3820 3.6GHz Socket 2011 10MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
    Motherboard: Asus P9X79 PRO Socket 2011 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
    SSD : OCZ 120GB Agility 3 SSD - SATA-III - Read 525MB/s Write 500MB/s 85,000 IOPS
    HDD :Seagate 2TB BARRACUDA 3.5" SATA-III Hard Drive - 7200RPM 64MB Cache
    RAM:G-Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600Mhz RipjawsX Memory Kit CL9 (9-9-9-24) 1.5V
    FAN:Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler
    POWER:OCZ ZX Series 850W 80+ GOLD PSU Fully Modular PSU
    CD DRIVE:LG BH10LS38 10x BD-RW with DVD±RW DL & RAM Lightscribe SATA Blu-Ray Drive - Retail Black

    I've tried different rams, reseting mobo/ updating to newest Bios but still keep getting this error.

    Does anyone have an idea if it could be software or hardware? All the above was brand new.

    Also to note, i tried reinstalling the windows and found out that my computer would not reformat my SSD until i used another pc...could this be the fault of the motherboard?(Windows is now installed again)


    Thanks for the help

    Hopes

    Try uninstalling any nvidia/amd graphics drivers and have another go.

    Thanks for the reply, i've done the above and still doesn't work...i would have thought that if it was a NVIDIA problem, then the 7970 card would have still worked?

    Sounds like the nvidia drivers are still there and running even after you uninstalled from the control panel. I'd try using Driver Sweeper http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/ after you've uninstalled from the control panel to remove all traces of the drivers and then run the registry fix on ccleaner http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner Do a reboot and try installing your card again - make sure you use the latest drivers from nvidia.com as opposd to whatever came on a disk with the card.

    Many experienced Nvidia users are unaware that the conventional wisdom regarding how to install/uninstall Nvidia drivers no longer applies, and using products like Driver Sweeper only compounds the associated problems. See the link in this thread:

    you need uninstall the nvidia graphics card driver. Use the control panel under add/remove programs. unistall it. Reboot PC and then do a clean install of the driver or nvidia software.
