Nvidia Driver keeps crashing!

Help please!

My Nvidia drivers keep crashing with an error coming up with "Display Driver has stopped working and has successfully recovered"

I usually play Black Ops 2 and my computer gets really hot while playing that I have no idea whether its that or not.

This is my computer: http://www.pcforce.co.nz/i7-4770-gtx650-ti-8gb-ram-1tb-hdd-budget-gaming-p-2554.html

I have tried re-applying thermal paste but nothing much happened.

  1. I have had this issue for several months now. Tis not the hardware but a fault in the graphics drive from nvidia. My solution was to roll back to driver 314.22 or earlier. this fixed the issue for me. http://linkto Nvidia driver
  2. I had the same problem and it was driving me nuts.
    The solution that worked for me was to go into my motherboard bios and increase the pci latency timer to 128. (mine was originally set to 32)
    I know there are a lot of people with this issue so if it works for you, pass it on.

    Would you possibly be able to provide a 'how to' to get that done?
  4. It's a little different for each motherboard manufacturer but the basics can be found in this article.

    Once you've accessed the BIOS look for a setting that says something like "PCI latency timer" and try increasing the value a little at a time until your system is stable. BTW the changes only take effect after saving and rebooting so it may take a few tries.
    It may be hidden in a sub menu titled something like "PCI subsystem settings"
    I know It looks a little vague but every motherboard has it's own bios with slightly different headings.
