I've got a Geforce GTX 660Ti
It's been running fine for 5-6 weeks. Today I launched Left4Dead2 and got 7-8 FPS (usually a rock solid 300 even at the busiest moments).
In case of driver/software issues, I reinstalled Steam, applied all outstanding windows updates, reinstalled the graphics driver (clean install) and finally (after validating local files) reinstalled L4D2.
Now, I've got a slew of problems...
- Launching a 3D app (Anything vaguely modern) causes an immediate crash
- Viewing a site which uses WebGL works fine (http://lights.elliegoulding.com/ works fine)
- GPU-Z works fine (GPU load < 5%)
- Nvidia System monitor crashes after a couple of seconds
- L4D2 crashes immediately
- Tropico 4 crashes immediately
- The longest journey runs fine
- Skype works fine until I turn on my webcam, then crashes immediately
- VLC crashes after 10-20 seconds
- Win7x64 aero glass works fine
Looking at the event viewer, provides a number of problems associated with the crash...

How can I diagnose what is causing the problem? Is it definitely a graphics card problem?
