Diagnostic (Stress?) Test For NVIDIA Video Card

Recommended Posts

​I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 video card that I've been having nightmarish crash problems with. It's the same problem that thousands of other users are having with the message: "Display Driver NVIDIA Kernel Mode Driver Version xxx.xx (the version number is irrelevant because it changes with every update but nothing ever improves) Stopped Responding And Has Successfully Recovered".  NVIDIA Support, while never giving a definitive fix for this problem, does have a number of troubleshooting suggestions (which thus far have gone nowhere) but one was to obtain AIDA64 Extreme and run a diagnostic on the VRAM in my video card to see if it's good or if it fails. Thus far I have not been able to determine exactly how to do that with AIDA64 and was wondering if someone could give me some guidance here?  I need to run it on the VRAM only and not some other component.  Also, are they referring to a "stress test" as an actual diagnostic, or is there some true diagnostic that will analyze the VRAM and let me know if it has a problem, kind of like MemTest would do for your computer's RAM.  Another suggestion they had was to test the Power Supply Unit (PSU); I think that's a bit of a "red herring" but I'm willing to try; is there a diagnostic test for that in AIDA64 as well?  Thanks and standing by...

1) AIDA64 System Stability Test includes a GPU subtest that stresses video adapters via OpenCL.  It's a generic stress test, so it doesn't focus on the VRAM specifically, but perform compute tasks to stress both the GPU and the VRAM.  There is no dedicated VRAM stress test in AIDA64, and quite frankly, I don't know any software that would do that.  It would be possible to develop such a software, so maybe one day someone will come up with it.

 

2) It's not possible to specifically stress or diagnose the PSU, since it's not a smart component.  It cannot run tests or any other tasks, it just provides power for the other system components.  It is possible however to run such a stress test with AIDA64 that draws the most power from the PSU, so it effectively stresses the PSU as much as possible.  Just open the AIDA64 System Stability Test, only enable (tick) the FPU subtest there, and press the Start button.  In some cases it is best to enable GPU subtest as well, to stress both the CPU and GPU.

      Hi!
      My PC:
      CPU - Ryzen 3 1200
      MB - MSI B450M Gaming Plus
      Video - Inno3D GTX 750 2Gb - 4 years
      PSU - Chieftec CHP - 500A - 8+ years
      MEM - Kingston HyperX KHX2666C16/8G 2 bars by 8Gb.
      HDD - WDC WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 (931 GB).
      SYS - Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 1809 Build 17763.379
      Bios last update. Default settings.
      Problems:
      Sometimes Kernel-Power (41) mostly in games and tests Aida64.
      Tests that I conducted (prime95(1 hour), OCCT(~40min), Memtest86(in bios (1 hour)), TestMem5), all is ok.  Sometimes the sound hangs. As if the whole system hangs for ~0.2-0.4sec.

      Hello, I got a NVIDIA Gt 710 card graphic card so when I do the GPGPU benchmark test, it shows in the Single-Precision  around 311.7 GFLOPS, But if you see the GPU specifications in the main window it says 366.0 GFLOPS @ 953 Mhz while running the GPGPU benchmark test.  
      I'm confused with that result,  anyone can tell me why is that ? Thanks.

      Hi, I've met a issue with the FPU stress test, the system would crash instantly when I click the "Start" buttom
      it was ok to run a solo CPU stress test over 2 hour, but I just dont understand why it went wrong when conducting the FPU test. Any Ideas?
      many thanks!
      I've attached a AIDA64 report of my mobo
       
      my build 
      CPU:7940x (1.15volt, OC 4.5ghz)
      MOBO:R6A
      RAM:Gskill 8G*4 4266mhz c17 (I set the frequency at 2133)
      PSU:AX1500i

      Hi
      Using stable version 5.95.4500 in Win 10 64 bit and this is a bug that I have noticed: -
      If I set aida64 to run on windows startup by checking the box in preferences then I get some mad lag and intermittent freezing while running the stability test - I'm just testing cpu.
      (The elapsed time counter does not tick through as normal as in 1,2,3,4,5 etc but jumps to like 5, 21, 30 etc and if I switch from statistics to temperature tab there is a freezing delay and sometimes aida64 momentarily says its not responding)
      I have seen on the net that this is totally normal when running the stability test as it maxes out resources.
      However...
      If I manually run aida64 after windows has started up then this mad lag and intermittent freezing goes away - all works well.
      This seems to be a problem with the way windows prioritizes aida64 while running on startup as opposed to manually running the program after windows starts?
      Any ideas on how to fix this?
