    Flashing Blank screen when opening Geforce experience Prog


    Hello Guys,

    I have recently installed a new Video Card a Gigabyte GeForce 660 GTX, when I'm playing video's or if I open the Geforce Experience program from the task bar the screen goes blank for about a second then returns to normal, it always seems to happen when I get the program to check for updates. I am using the latest driver 320.49.

    When I play games there's no problem occur so I don't think it's the card it's self, I suspect it's something to do with the program.

    I just wondered if anyone else is having this problem?

    Thanks

    Tony

    Just curious; do you get a pop-up message indicating that your driver has stopped working momentarily but has recovered? Lower-left side of screen from task manager?

    I also did a further investigation and I assume you have the power supply requirements covered and you have connected the additional 6 pin power supply connection; yes?

    Thermal and Power Specs:
    97 C Maximum GPU Tempurature
    140 Watt Maximum Graphics Card Power450 Watt Minimum System Power Requirement
    One 6-pin Supplementary Power Connector

    If all of the above is well, you may want to try a different driver version to see if that helps.

    So, did you fix it?

    Hello Guys,

    I contacted Nvidia support and they suggested uninstalling the Geforce Experience program and reinstalling it then changing a setting via the NVIDIA control panel-------->3D settings------->Manage 3D settings-------->Global setting------->power management mode. If it is set to "Adaptive" change it to "Prefer maximum performance.

    That seemed to fix it last night but I have just opened the Geforce Experience program and it has done it again tonight. I have never got a warning about a driver stopping working. My PSU is a 520w Corsair unit and the 6 pin connector is connected, if it was a power issue I would have thought I would have got the flashing blank screen when playing games and maxing the card out.

    Thanks

    Tony
