I keep getting this error of nVidia driver. So what it does basically first it freeze all windows then my monitor becomes black and if it recovers it gives me error message like u see in the url, if not then i just have to restart my pc. After error recovering my Photoshop closes, all websites remain black so i have to restart browser. I would love to know it there is any real solution for this, or why it's happening. I have newest drivers of nVidia.

I noticed that I get it more often when:

  • Skype starts
  • Working on Photoshop or other programs like Illustrator
  • Viewing images
  • Watching YouTube
  • Playing some games

I'm on Windows 7.

Thanks, Drig.

IMO...any known driver issues relatint to video, audio, etc...are best resolved by uninstalling the current driver for said function....and then installing the same driver anew or installing an updated driver for said function.


If the system is an OEM (HP, Dell, etc.), the source for driver downloads would be the OEM's website support page for that system.


If non-OEM, the source for drivers would be either the motherboard driver CD or the website of the component manufacturer.


If a driver uninstall/reinstall doesn't solve it...I'd consider the possibllity of failing hardware.
