Windows 7: NVIDIA Graphics Drivers Stopped Responding

18 Jul 2011   #11


I'm running 275.33 and I've never had this error for a couple of years now. Was playing Bad Company 2 the other night and all of a sudden I was getting this every 10 minutes. Started playing another game, and same thing started happening, so I just did a full re-install and used Driver Sweeper in safe mode to clear everything. Not had the problem since then.

Don't mention NVIDIA ...

I'm always having trouble with my NVIDIA 8500 GT (regardless of the driver version).

It randomly:
  • Forgets the resolution settings.
  • Turns itself off & on.
My only consolation is that ATI cards are even worse (allegedly).

That's weird.

When I log in and refresh the page, it reappears.
