Hi guys!

I bought a 660ti, it shows video, but, when I try to install the drivers, Windows (in device manager) shows error 43 "The device has stopped because it reports problems"

I tried bios flash but the problem continues ...

Does anyone have any ideas?
Maybe you need to consider a hardware problem?

Please provide pictures of the card, including the white sticker on its back. The more info we have, the better we will be able to help.

And if you can complete your "System Spec", would be awesome.

it may be possible it's a fake of defective card unfortunately, but we'll take a look before jumping to conclusion :).

Hello!

It's a zotac gtx 660ti (no amp) with 2048mb of vram! The white sticker on the back has been removed :banghead:

About system specs: I tested it on two systems: i3 4th gen with h81 motherboard and 8gb ram supplied with a white psu evga 430w 80+ and an i7 3770 with 16gb ram, h61 ecs motherboard, supplied with 620w seasonic psu 80+ bronze

Later I attach photos:D:D

Okidoo,


..., but, when I try to install the drivers, Windows (in device manager) shows error 43 "The device has stopped because it reports problems"

Concerning the driver installation, do you have any error during or after the installation from the wizzard?
If so, I guess your nvidia control panel doesn't show the information concerning the card?

I suppose you did remove the previous gpu drivers just to make sure it's clean cut?

Try and run GPU-Z, tho I'm not sure if it relies on successful driver installation for it to work properly, we'll learn together.

Good thing you already removed the other components from the equation :).

Hahaha thank you all for the time altcapwn!

I have no errors during installation. Screen flickers once upon completion, but no nvidia dashboard or geforce experience appears.
the gpu z shows all the information correctly

I always use DDU before installing a new gpu

Hi Damian, we're still waiting for those pictures,

the more pictures of the card, the better. We just want to check if it's a genuine card.

No worries mate.

@eidairaman1 was the best for those kind of issues, Ima try to help you in his honor.

Please and try to flash the card with the following VGA BIOS :
VGA Bios Collection: Zotac GTX 660 Ti 2048 MB | TechPowerUp

Using NVFlash :
NVIDIA NVFlash (5.670.0) Download | TechPowerUp

And when you do the flashing, just to be sure and safe, I would recommend you to connect your monitor to the iGPU.
You may need to disable a feature in the bios that disable iGPU if a dedicated GPU is detected.

Good news is ; your card seem genuine.
If you feel uncomfortable flashing your card, let me know and I'll give you some guidelines.
Take note that flashing a GPU is never a guaranteed process. It may brick, so keep that in mind.

Just let me know if the flash fails, what is the error given.
You can try that BIOS too but there's no overclock.
VGA Bios Collection: Zotac GTX 660 Ti 2048 MB | TechPowerUp

if the bios flashing is successful, but the GPU still doesn't want to install, we may need to look into your eventviewer to see if we can get more details about the reason of the failure.
Next time you try installing your drivers, from "Device Management", right click your GPU and make sure to "uninstall and remove all traces of drivers".

I already tried to update BIOS with Nvflash, and also to delete Drivers from device manager (all this before creating the post) but nothing had any result. :'(

Oooh, did NVFlash gave you any error? And I suppose you used the VGA BIOS provided.

Okidoo, then in your devmgmt.msc, in your GPU, in the "event tabs", what does it says?

No, Nvflash does not show errors.
I backed up the gpu BIOS with GpuZ, then dragged the BIOS file you shared with me to nvflash. This does the update, verifies and closes.
Both before and after the BIOS flashes, the device manager displays "The device has stopped because it is reporting problems"

Do you mean that with "devmgmt.msc"?

Sorry, devmgmt.msc is "Device Manager" :), you can enter that in "run" or "cmd" to access it rapidly.

You should have an "event" tab in your device manager once you open a device.
This tab should gives more information.

Oh and clean the GPU PCI connector for me please with alcohol or lighter fuel :).

I understand!
Can I see it even though the gpu is not connected?
If so, as soon as I turn on the last PC I tested on, I look at it. :3

Hmmm it should still be there but may be hidden, you can see it by clicking on "View", then "Show Hidden Devices".

If there's video from the card, then I don't see why it wouldn't work. Very strange.

Mmmm, todavía debería estar allí, pero puede estar oculto, puedes verlo haciendo clic en "Ver" y luego en "Mostrar dispositivos ocultos".

Si hay video de la tarjeta, entonces no veo por qué no funcionaría. Muy extraño.
Perfect, as soon as I can I will show the necessary information ❤

660 Ti is pretty old, entirely possible it's simply failed. I have a non-Ti 660 that's still in daily use. I never update the drivers. Right, some 660 cards were afflicted with driver related TDRs. nVidia never explained what the problem was. I supect they may have swept a problem under the rug. It might be easier to change the card to a 960 or something (960 was trouble free and the "newest" silicon revision for the generation).

Hello again!
Sorry. I was busy.
In events I found this:

Description:
Driver management finished the driver installation process nv_dispi.inf_amd64_c1a085cc86772d3f \ nv_dispi.inf for device instance identifier PCI \ VEN_10DE & DEV_1183 & SUBSYS_128019DA & REV_A1 \ 4 & 14E8F4CB & following status 0 & 0x0.
