Ok so the pc freezed out but only for like 5 seconds while browsing mozilla - in the event viewer:

The description for Event ID 14 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

\Device\Video5

started freezing each 5 minutes.

googled a bit and it seems that for many people the problems is the NVIDIA driver 320.49 WHQL. The solution seems to be to roll back on the 314.22 driver.

I just did that, GPU temperature 36-38c. I really hope this was the problem.

Btw, this error in event viewer: Driver PCI returned invalid ID for a child device (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF00).

Seems to appear everytime I reset the PC.

P.S.: I saw that this was a fix for many people, should I reinstall the drivers in this way?

1. In Control Panel, goto System [WIN+X -> Y]
2. Click "Advanced system settings"
3. Click "Hardware" Tab then "Device Installation Settings"
4. Select "No Let me choose what to do" and "Never install driver software from Windows Update"
(Optional) Uncheck "Automatically get the device app and info provided by your device manufacturer"
5. Now uninstall the nVidia drivers like normal and reboot [WIN+X -> F]
6. After reboot you'll see everything is in low resolution. The driver may still install but it doesn't
install all the way like it used to before.x
7. Goto Device Manager [WIN+X -> M]
8. Find your videocard under Display Device, right-click and Uninstall the videocard
9. Reboot Again
10. Go back to Device Manager [WIN+X -> M] click the last button on the top right
"Scan for Hardware Changes"
(Windows will now install a generic WDDM driver {not nVidia drivers YAY})
11. Install your driver of choice.

You can go to nvidia's site download the driver you want and choose the clean install option

Yes, I did that. Shut down my PC for a bit, and when I turn it on, event viewer:

Driver PCI returned invalid ID for a child device (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF00).

Ok so for the past 2 days I had the PC on for over 12hrs/day. No error or freezes. What I did:

Many people reporting the same issues I had with new NVIDIA drivers, so:
- installed the 314.22 driver
- disabled the hardware acceleration for Adobe
- in chrome://flags I disabled the GPU compositing on all pages and GPU Accelerated SVG Filters
- reinstalled .NET framework 4
- my computer > control panel > system and security > power options > advanced power settings > PCI Express > Link state power management: OFF

So as I said, no errors or freezes and the temperatures are way lower than with the new drivers, below 40c most of the time.

And about this error: Driver PCI returned invalid ID for a child device (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF00), I've seen many people blaming the drivers for the Renesas 3.0 USB. I hope this was it and maybe this post will help other people as well, thank you very much for your help.
