Windows 7: Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding...

win7 64bit Professional
Nvidia driver stopped responding & recovered

The solution to this and similar cards having this fault is the graphic card CPU running at too high temp - Ideal temp is 51' - 62' I had a similar problem and tried all the fixes. Then I bought a 1.5 inch fan and used self tapping screws to screw the fan directly onto the heat sink of my graphic card ( GeForce 8500 GT)
From a high of 86' and stalling of the graphic rendering, black screens, and recovery, to a new high of 62' my PC runs steady, graphics excellent and rendering is supaquick and no little blocks where graphic fill is poor. Use MSI Afterburner ( or similar program) to check on the Graphic Card CPU Afterburner 2.1.0 Beta 5 download from
Hope this helps.
