Windows 7: Display driver stopped responding and has been....

Display driver stopped responding and has been....

Hey!

I'm sure you know the error I'm going to post so I'm going to give you the details.

It's my GPU that is an Asus ENGTX580 with the latest drivers (installed today after getting this error with the 296.10 drivers, which were old). The latest ones are 306.23 and I went to try the drivers and I got a bluescreen after just 10-15 minutes. I didn't install any new drivers since 296.10 because they gave me bluescreens. But it was a while ago I tried so I thought I'd try the new ones to see if they work. And they don't. I still get the drivers stopped responding message, and now I get bluescreens on top of that.

Stats of my PC:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
ASUS P6T WS Professional Motherboard
Intel i7 920 @ 2.67GHz
4Gb RAM (Apparently my motherboard broke last week and I lost 2Gb. I've tried switching all the sticks and my third spot seems to be broken. Just know that the problems I have now have always been here)
Regular harddrives. Seagate 1TB x 2
F-Secure
It is well cooled. The case has a lot of fans.

If I've missed something please do tell me!

Poke! Hey! I think I've supplied all the details and I hope somebody here could help me find the problem and come up with a solution. Because I'm on the edge of buying a new motherboard next pay check so I need to know if that's necessary.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Timelaw, Your display driver is out of date.

With the memory slot problem I would get a new board, but that may not fix the driver issues. Let's see how the fixes Arc recommends goes.

Okey I'll try this as soon as I have time. I'm currently studying and I need it running atm to do some stuff. But when I'm finished I'll try to do that.

And about the memory slots; I'll absolutely buy a new one. But I'm thinking that if there's a problem with my GPU I want to RMA it to get a functional one. I've always had this issue with Battlefield 3, but no other game. So I don't know if it's just my motherboard who has a collection of issues or if it's something else.

Anyway, I'll get to it in a few hours! Thanks!

Well a bad board may make a GPU seem bad. Try this to test it and keep an eye on your temps.

So, I'm back. I never tested that stuff but what I did was to order a new motherboard with a new set of DDR3's, so I now have 12gb of RAM and a new, fresh motherboard. It all worked fine in Battlefield 3 (after installing the latest drivers for my GPU) for a steady hour or two, I stopped playing and I started chatting and installing software (fresh windows installation, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) and stuff. I started a new game and I got the message after just 2 minutes.

"The display drivers stopped working and has been restored"

Where can I locate the log file for this error, if it's possible? Or does this program I used in my previous post do that for me?

It did that the second I tried to start a test. Trying again now, but if this happens again I'll wait for a reply.


After a little debugging I figured out that I couldn't run the program with the logging on, because it crashed if I did. So without the logging I could see that the temperature got steady at 80 degrees after a few minutes and I see no artifacts. The only thing though is that I feel nauseaus (spelling?) when looking at that thing.... my god.

Anyway, suggestions?

Hello, guys? I'm in desperate need of help here!

I also noticed, while changning motherboard, that the CPU had two dark spots on two of the pins. Does this have any significance?
