Hello,

My monitor displays this image every now and then "Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered
Display Driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

For some reason it gets worse and worse. At a certain point it just freezes. I got this video card only a few months ago so I doubt that it's about to die. What can I do? It's already given me a few BSODs this morning. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it.

Thanks for the help!

Does it do this randomly, or does it happen when you are doing something specific or running a specific program? Which video card to you have?

I have the NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti. It does it pretty randomly but more often when I use videos. I don't even have to be using videos when it freezes sometimes. Firefox seems to be the worst./

Who manufactures the card?

I'm at work at the moment and haven't been able to do any real research, but have you tried installing the newer .79 beta drivers?

Also, saw this one: try going to your nVidia settings, go to 3d/Global and choose 'Prefer max performance'

EVGA manufactures it. I will. I also opened up the computer, dusted it, and found that the screw for the card was loose. This might have caused the rotation of the fan to be off so that might be one of the reasons. Also there was some plastic seal on it that I never took off that I did. Hopefully it's fixed now but let us see.

thanks dude

No prob. Sometimes a bad connection can mess up all sorts of things. I cleaned out the machine the other day and my network card completely stopped working. I had to pull the card out and reinsert it, and it worked just fine.

The higher the bus speed, the better the connection has to be.
