Windows 7: Photoshop and Windows 7 BSOD

Photoshop and Windows 7 BSOD

Hey all,

I'm running the latest version of Photoshop x64, Windows 7 x64 fully updated, and 196.21 on my Nvidia GTX275.

Randomly, however, after working on a file (or even a blank canvas), Photoshop locks up (needs to be restarted), the screen blanks out, and I get an error from Windows 7 (in taskbar) telling me that the display driver was reset.

I did not have this problem under XP, and figured that the issue could be heat related. I tested this hypothesis out, and heat has absolutely nothing to do with it.

I have noticed that, sometimes, I hear the CPU fan speed up right when the display driver resets.

What's up?
