    Well today I reformatted and when I wanted to move the sound card away from the graphics card another slot down ever since then I've been having problems. I tried moving my sound card to few different pci e slots and every time I do an windows experience index to rate my pc this happens to it:

    It seems like when I put my sound card to where I had it before I don't get problems and the problems is that the when I do windows Index Experience it always get stuck at that one part (picture is right above this, click the link to few picture) and when I watch movies or even youtube video is does that error like on that picture. The only way my pc is stable is if I put the sound card back to its original spot. I know its not a big deal but the thing is I'm going to buy another 570 in a few weeks and I'm trying to push the sound card away so both video cards will be almost next together for SLI. I don't want my sound card to be a sandwich against the other gfx card.

    I have an GTX 570. And the sound card is Creative Titanium HD

    Like for some reason the one below the graphics card that slot works and I don't get that error message. But with the other PCI E slots I get that message.

    I also updated my bios as well to the latest asus z77 sabertooth and updated every since thing for my mother board and graphics card. Someone said it might be sharing bandwidth or something but I don't know, this crap doesn't make sense at all to me.

    have you tried posting in the Asus ROG forums? they are pretty knowledgeable with those kind of problems to find a solution.

    check the BIOS for your PCIe slot options configuration after you have changed slots and in your Windows power options set PCI express power management to off.
    good luck

    Update to latest BIOS and use Forceware 296.10 and the latest stable Creative drivers, clean install the forceware.

    Yeah did all of that and my stuff works but only when I put my sound card on the pci e slot i had originally had before but when I change it to another one, that's when I get all the errors like youtube/vlc problems and that pop up thing pops and says "display driver stopped responding and has recovered"

    Yeah thing is my sound card always work but when I enter it to another pci slot it seems to run errors like some reason its conflicting with the graphics card unless I put the sound card back to its original spot I had it before.

    that display driver error is not uncommon google it you will see tons of issues relating to that, I even get it with my GTX 460 the display driver just bugs out sometimes out of the blue for no reason and without any changes being made to the system, I usually update to the latest driver from the Nvidia website and everything calms down again for a while it's very strange indeed

    Although I am far from being an expert on NVIDIA drivers, I also had this display driver message spontaneously on FF on 285.62 (or 77) and 296.10. However, this problem was not there for me on 280.26 and 295.73. In fact, use 295.73 for win 7 even though it is now more than 6 months on and 3xx drivers are up.
