Recently, I updated my Nvidia graphics drivers to version 196.21. After the update, however, I was unable to play Crysis Warhead. The executable will run and the level will load without any problems. After about 40 seconds, the screen image will disappear and reappear at the windows desktop. Windows then displays an error message which states, "Display driver nvlddmkm.dll stopped responding and has recovered." An error message then appears which states, "Crysis Warhead has stopped working." I tried reinstalling the driver, yet the problem persists.
The game ran without any issues before the driver update, and no other game has any difficulty running correctly. Even Crysis Wars runs properly.
What could the problem be? Do you think that I should revert to the old forceware 195? Or does the problem lie within Crysis Warhead?
