Windows 7: "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding" only when watching video

"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding" only when watching video

Hello,

I'm getting the message "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." when watching video files or online video streams. I'm sure this is not linked to temperatures or high usage, as I can run FSX with maximum settings for hours at a time without anything bad happening. I have tried several different versions of video drivers (card is EVGA GTX 580 DS), and I've also taken off all overclocking from both the card and the CPU. Please advise, as I'm totally lost as to what to try next.

Regards,

Arut

How old the graphics card is? Is it under warranty?

The card is about a year old, possibly under warranty still. However, I'm really not sure the card is an issue, as it works perfectly under heavy load in FSX. Do you really think the card can be a problem here and not a software or OS issue?

OS - no chance.
Display driver... might be. You may update it to the latest as a test. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, follow the option two. Or check in nvidia control panel.

In almost all of the cases, it is it fault of the card.
