190.62 has stopped responding - is my hardware broken?
I recently got a new computer consisting, main parts, of the asus rampage II ROG, corsair 850HX, 12 GB OCZ platinum ram and a core i7 920. My graphics card used to be 2x GTX285, but I changed them to a, my current, GTX295. They worked fine, but I didn't like SLI.
On both setups, I've had this issue where a 3D application would stop working, go black, and a message would appear saying that the "190.62 has stopped responding but has now recovered". This also happened with the version 190.58. It doesn't happen with all applications/benchmarks, but sometimes..I can't figure out when.
The temperature is typically around 55 degrees celcius when running a 3D game.
My question is, whether or not this most likely means some hardware is broken? Otherwise the computer is working perfectly.
It should of course be said that I have OC'ed both the CPU/RAM and the GPU a bit, but not very much.

I have encountered the same error you are receiving but only when i have been overclocking my GPU. I have a much lower quality GPU (just an 8800) but I noticed the error during stress testing. When i dialed back the OC a bit the problem seemed to go away. I chalked it up to pushing my hardware a bit too far
I think you're right, I just wanted some more opinions More are still welcome!
Btw how hot can a GPU get before it's too much?
I can't decide whether or not it's acceptable or not. Same goes for my CPU really.
