Hello everyone, so i got a GPU recently. a SPARKLE Calibre GTX 580.

https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/sparkle-calibre-gtx-580.b749

it has a bit of a problem it just crashes completely then bluescreens immediately when the driver is installed, so long the drivers aren't installed it runs fine.

could it be a bios issue? or what else could it be? i'd appreciate some help and thank you in advance :)

Full specs:

-CPU Xeon X3440 @ 2.66GHz

-Motherboard Gigabyte GA H55M-D2H

-RAM 8gb DDR3 1333MHz

-Graphics card
SPARKLE Calibre GTX 580

-Power supply Cooler Master Elite V4 600w

-HDD/SSD configuration 1 SSD for boot and 3 HDDs for games

-Case/Chasis make,model Cooler Master K282

-Operating System Windows 10

Kindly provide FULL PC specs.

-1. "Complete" system specs should ALWAYS be accompanied with any driver, hardware, or performance question. Do not post DXDiag reports as they contain a TON of useless information. Posting a DxDiag in place of a System Spec List tends to ward off potential members from helping you.

Please supply the following system details/information:

(Complete System Specs)
-CPU make and model# (clock speed/voltage, type of cooler, and "Core" temperature @ idle and load)
-Motherboard make & model# (include Bios version if graphics card is not recognized or you are having stability issues)
-RAM (amount, clock speed, model#/link of kit, configuration)
-Graphics card(s) make and model# (clock speed, voltage if modified, Driver version and GPU temp both @ idle and load)
-Power supply make,model#, "AND" age (note if using 110V or 220V A/C input)
-HDD/SSD configuration (ie: Raid setup/ back up/ OS drive/etc..)
-Case/Chasis make,model# (fan make, model#, and configuration if having thermal issues)
-Operating System (If using Windows note Framework and service pack version)
-Monitor make, model#, and resolution (If model# is unknown list resolution and refresh rate)

*If the unit is a "laptop" or "All-in-one" system you must note the make and model# of the unit. Be sure you are ALWAYS using the OEM/manufacturer's Driver updates for the unit.

*If "Crashing":
-Note the nature of the "crash" in detail, as there are several definitions for the word "crash".

*If "performance" related issue:
-Note the "exact" point in which the performance reduction occurred (ie: After Windows update, After Bios update, After Driver update, After thermal system shutdown, After Hardware change/upgrade etc...)

*For diagnostic purposes please disable the following:
-Any/all Antivirus/ Anti-malware software
-Any/all OSD monitoring software
-ALL overclocks outside of factory spec
.


EDIT: @rgd1101 has already made a post requesting for system specs. Did not see his reply while typing and before posting. :p

Alright, you should have a new post instead of editing the OP, because I just re-visited this thread to check again. But anyways, that's no big deal. Okay, tell us one thing. Is the GPU brand new, or a used second hand model ?

Have you connected the Power Connectors 1x 6-pin + 1x 8-pin to the GPU from your PSU ? Your current PSU model is not the very best of power supplies, but this is a different issue for the time being. But I would surely recommend getting a high quality PSU to power up any GPU.

its a second hand, got it for free from a friend. thought i'd try to get it working, i plugged everything correctly and my PSU was able to power the GPU just fine. i figured its a hardware issue with the GPU itself at this point.
