I get this on a few games (FC3 wont boot, Medieval total war 2 wont boot, Game Dev Tycoon wont play past 20-30 seconds, and Rome 2 wont even start).

I have done clean installations and my only resort now is 306 drivers.

Any idea on what i can do?

I followed the repair tip here:

But it does not show errors on my nvidia driver, nor does it allow me to update.

HELP!

    Sorry, but it was hard to understand the above post. Do you mean:

    use the link and install the plug in? Where do i get the plug in?
  5. it is on the link when you try to detect the drivers it will ask to install it the name of it is my config . this page http://www.touslesdrivers.com/index.php?v_page=29 and when you press detect lead you to it .

    The updater did not resolve anything. i had no graphics card drivers that needed resolution or updating.

    It however pointed to me to a bunch of what looked like shovelware
  8. you could use ccleaner and malwarebytes to do some cleaning .
  9. I know this is an old post but this is one of the first google results from searching for the specific error .

    I've experienced this issue when using the oculus rift, on a fresh windows 7 install. Previous installation had worked just fine.
    Installing newer drivers or rolling back to older versions did not produce any improvements.
    ( Note : the issue manifested only in certain 3D applications, most games worked just fine )

    Fix : ( for my situation )
    After doing a very long set of windows updates ( about 1gb worth of updates ) . The error completely stopped manifesting.
