GTX 1060 Crash Problem??

Recommended Posts

I have a frequent problem that I am beginning to think is caused by my MSI GTX 1060  6GB GPU.

My system (i5-6600K 3.5Ghz, 500GB Samsung SSD, 16GB RAM, GTX 1060, GB GPU) runs X Plane 11 very good EXCEPT that I often get a crash when going to Chase view mode. There is no .rpt file in in the Crash Report folder and no sure way to repeat  --  it is totally random. I know there are some issues with the 1060  such as the card will not reawaken my monitor from sleep and when I get the XP crash the card loses signal to the monitor and I have to restart the computer which leads me to believe the crash is GPU related.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Perhaps. But this begs the question : why is the selection of "chase view mode" the ONLY cause of crash I ever have????

Thanks Bjoern and Colonel X, it appears you were right on. Over the past few days the problem became worse so I took your suggestions, reset the power and data cables and removed/reset the GPU (which I suspect had a bad seating in the slot). Now all is back to smooth flying.

Thanks much.

Dave
