Hi Community!

Having some big issues with NVIDIA Display Drivers. My computer BSODs when I try to wake from sleep after extended periods. The following files are the culprit:


I'm using the latest drivers 331.65, the problem exists on any driver I use except 314.22.

I'm using a custom size page file, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. It's pointing to Direct X and NVIDIA as the culprits. I've performed clean installs, but the problem still exists. Sometimes watchdog.sys, may or may not be included as part of the problem.

Here is a screenshot from Blue Screen View Software:

Any thoughts?
