Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I had already formatted my hard drive before seeing your post.

I haven't experienced the black screen or drivers crashing and recovering problem yet. I did, however, encounter something yesterday. I was just browsing on Facebook when the whole screen just turned teal. I had to restart. The same thing happened earlier today when I was playing Starcraft II. I read somewhere that the newest beta drivers would fix the problem I'm having so I used those instead of going for the older 275.xx drivers.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have this problem also, but can live with it for now... Have a MSi GTx 560ti 2gb, and I had the problem before I updated to more recent drivers.

I also have this issue on another desktop in the house, which runs an older 6600GT nvidia card, so I'm guessing its driver related, as this pc always ran well until fairly recently.

Just hope nvidia get drivers sorted sooner rather than later...

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Retail

The driver stopped responding etc error is a power management related isssue which Nvidia hasn't fixed yet
A possible solution is to go to Manage 3D settings in Nvidia's control panel and set power management to Prefer maximum performance (possible meaning it might sometimes not work)
