So i just got my new gaming rig set up. all i do is watch videos in HD and play wow on it, but my gtx 460 cuts out randomly sometimes. when im watching/playing something full screen (23" moniter, accures more when in full 1080p hd) the game/video stops, my screen goes completely black. and i get a message saying that the nvideo gtx460 driver failed and recovered.. this is extremely anoying sometimes. it can happen every 3 seconds to every hour. i have reinstalled the drivers twice and have put the video card in a different slot and it hasnt helped..
Try doing a clean install of your drivers(forgot to mention),here is how
1_Download driver sweeper (from guru3d.com)
2_Go to control panel and uninstall your current driver
3_Reboot and go to safemode and open driver sweeper and click on Nvidia,then choose clean
4_Boot normally and Install the latest driver again.
