Display Driver crash

i am new to this posting so if i do post wrong i am sorry. About 6 months ago i had several issues with my screen flickering. I thought it was just an old monitor so i replaces it. No problems , however the last 48 hours my screen goes black then sometimes it will come back on and say that my display driver crashed. Ive tried looking around but i see no error reports or anything on the driver. i am using a NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS . I know this is an older model but hey it happens any help or input would be very helpful. i think i have posted all required information but if I have not just let me know what you need and ill see what i can do to get it.

These driver crashes sometimes lead to the 0x116 blue screen crashes.

    It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

    Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

    If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.
    The above quote was taken from http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post280172, which is linked to in usasma's thread about this error. Closely follow the first three posts of usasma's thread outlining STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.


There have also been some cases where driver crashes like yours were due to an application or service conflict. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
