Check this, and see if it fixes the problem.
Using a vga cable instead of dvi is no solution.

If it fixes the problem, then isn't it a solution? Many people already tried updating chipset drivers and increasing ram voltage, which doesn't really fix the problem.

Please see this post for a possible solution so you can run DVI.

I've recently upgraded to 64bit, I noticed that this nvlddmkm error occurs less frequently on Win7x64
The Nvidia drivers appears to be faulty and unstable!

Error 4101 display driver stopped responding... FIX

Error 4101 display driver stopped responding... FIX
Hi
Prior to the Error 4101

I was running Vista 64, this problem was not present. I then did a CLEAN install onto Windows 7 updated all drivers including Chipset then the dreaded “display driver has stopped responding but has now recovered “started to appear during 2d and 3d applications, under event viewer I located the error 4101.

My current system is running stable by following this sequence.

UAC ENABLED
POWER MANAGMENT SET TO HIGH


1. Uninstall all GPU related drivers/ and ADOBE FLASH
2. Turn of PC (not at wall)
3. Clear CMS
4. Boot allow windows to load
5. Shut down then Turn off pc (at wall)
6. Remove GPU and PCI cards
7. Re-install
6. Restart
7. Hit del (load bios)
8. Reset to defaults
9. Load windows
10. Install 9.3 ATI (for me vista 64_win_7 64)
11. Alter TDR in registry set to 0
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/display/wddm_timeout.mspx
12. Look for unsupported monitor d-word change to 0
(Should still be under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers )
13. Restart (happy gaming)

Prior to this, Bioshock and all other games would freeze after 3-7 mins, last night I gamed solid for an hour no freeze.

Ps. I think it is either unsupported monitor modes on windows 7 (1680 by 1050) or the TDR function. Although 1680 by 1050 is detected by CCC and windows, there may still be a compatibility issue. Any hows it’s now working.
I don’t think it is adobe flash plug-in, UAC or power management.

If this works for you spread the word around the community.

I finally fixed the problem by using modded drivers from tweakforce.com instead of the crappy nvidia drivers.
