I am having problem where my computer turns black few seconds then back to normal with a windows error notification at the bottom right corner saying "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered". And sometimes I get a blue screen instead.

This problem happens randomly when I play games and specially when animation graphic becomes intense, i.e lots of animation when cast a magic etc.

Also I got following error every time when I run FurMark to test my graphic cards, literally after 1 seconds, in other words, it dies even the GPU load is on 0%

Solutions I tried but none of them work:

Fixing the Nvlddmkm Error (Display driver has stopped responding)
Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista (Fix for me)

using different graphic drivers and lowering resolution may help.

Thank you, I have been doing that already, I always play games in low resolution low video quality setting and also in windowed mode because I found I don't get blue screen as often as playing games in full screen mode.

Also the test I have done using FurMark was under lowest resolution 800*600, but will still get that popup error after 1 sec.

Okay, finally, the problem was the power supply, it was too rubbish to support the powerful video card, after change a new one , everything works :) 

The video card was actually detect the issue, and flagged out by showing a red light, but I didn't know what that means, with the new psu, the light is now green, everything works :)
