How to solve NVRM: GPU 0000:01:00.0: GPU has fallen off the bus completely?

I training DL model on GPU and stuck after 20 minutes, also cannot access to GPU by nvidia-smi when the error occur. After rebooting, I can access to GPU by nvidia-smi without error, but when run training program, the problem happened again after training 20 minutes. I using same program to do training DL model many hours without error before, so annoying and wired.

Some root cause and strategy of error:

  1. Overheating
  2. Insufficient/unstable power supply
  3. Replace slot
  4. System bios updates

I monitor temperatures when training, and the temperatures always < 50 C, so it is not overheating. I Also try enable persistent mode but not work. Finally I using solution from Unable to determine the device handle for GPU xxxxxxxx: Unknown Error, using following command temporarily to solve the error, training program executing stably for 30 minutes and error happened again. I want to how to solve the root cause completely?

temporarily solve the error by:

nvidia-smi -lgc 300,1500

I have the exact same error with a gtx 970

Your pcie bus is breaking down. In case you’re using a riser, please remove it. Another reason for this might be the pcie chipset on the mainboard overheating, please check if this is actively cooled, fan is working, no dust. You can try to work around it lowering pcie gen in bios if available.
