I've been having issues ever since upgrading my computer about a month ago with games crashing. I've upgraded my CPU, GPU, Mobo, and RAM intiially. Anytime I played any games (CS:GO, COD:WZ, Division 2) I would crash with Application has been blocked from accessing Graphics Hardware or the nvlddmkm has stopped responding and recovered. I did a DDU clean uninstall and install in Safe Mode in case the drivers were messed up, but still received that error. After this, I decided to clean install windows, in case DDU still hasn't fully wiped out the drivers somehow but still had the issues. I ran stress tests on everything I could think of to see if the crashes happen, but it seems to be limited to games at this point. I've ran Cinebench for CPU, MSI Afterburner/Furmark for GPU, and memtest for RAM, and all results were fine no crashes. At this point I was lost, and believed it may not have been software related. I googled and tried to do every fix I found. The fixes I can remember are TdrDelay at QWORD 8/TdrLevel 0, debug mode on NVIDIA Control Panel, Link State Power Management set to Off on Windows power options, Power Management Mode in NVIDIA Control Panel set to Prefer Maximum Performance, turn off NVIDIA in-game overlay, and re-seat the RAM/GPU. The change that seemed to help the most that I later found was actually underclocking
the GPU. I initially do -20 MHz, which worked for about a week. Once I crashed once, I lowered it to -100 MHz, which worked for about another week. I then moved it to -200 MHz, and that worked for about a week again. That was when I decided it was time to try reaching out to EVGA support. I've explained everything, and eventually led to an RMA.
Fast forward to installing the new graphics card, I was able to play for about an hour before the issue occurred again. I decided maybe I should DDU and clean install again, so I did that in safe mode but it still did not help. However now, in addition
to the previous 2 issues popping up in the Event Viewer logs, I am bombarded with a bunch of nvlddmkm Event ID 13 errors. I am currently sitting at -250 MHz on this new Graphics card and it is still happening. I began wondering if GPU is not the true issue, so I began testing my system with just a single RAM stick one at a time, and they both crashed individually.
If anyone has encountered this or has any information on how to fix this, I am open to trying anything at this point. I've exhausted almost all my options at this point, and am feeling like I just wasted money on my GPU.
