Hi folks.
 
I had an ASUS SABERTOOTH P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard, and in the course of getting my stuff shipped to Hawaii, it died. I replaced it (going extremely cheap, I know, my bad) with an ASUS P8Z68-V LX Intel Motherboard LGA 1155 Z68 SATA 6 Gb/s and USB 3.0 ATX Intel. It seemed to run ok for the first week or so I owned it. Now, when I'm doing nearly anything the screen will go all torn and spotty, flash off, then come back on with a notification window that says the video driver (NVIDIA Game Ready driver v373.06 for GeForce GTX 570) has crashed. Sometimes Windows 'recovers' and just takes me back to the desktop. Sometimes it reboots the whole system. This most commonly happens during graphics intensive games which were previously not a problem with my old mobo. I've tried rolling back to the previous driver, reseating the GPU, and doing defrag/scandisk. None had any effect. Any ideas?
 
Any help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Home Premium

Download a fresh copy of your GeForce driver, uninstall the old one, then install the new driver.

Have done this many times. Reinstalled same current version of the driver, no good. Rolled back to 2 other previous versions, no good. Now running most recent release (373.06). Still no good.

Do you have another graphics card you could try to see if the problem is with your current card?

Do you have another computer you can try the graphics card in.  There is a possibility that the card is failing.
