Hi, everyone,

This is my system.

1. ASUS P5Q Pro (NBv: 1.20v)
2. E7400 C2D O/C 3.4 GHz (at 1.25000v)
3. Antect Earthwatts 500W (44 amps on 12v rail, total 408w)
4. Corsair XMS2 4 GB (not overclocked), default timings.
6. GTX 560 SC (Non-TI).

Now, I know my PSU is powerful enough for the card, and have been using it for three weeks (with Torchlight, SC2, 3DMark11, FuMark) with drivers 285.62 (latest). But just today, while working in Google Docs, I received the following error:

"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

This has happened twice this morning within Firefox.

I know my O/C is stable, after running many tests in Intel Burntest and Prime 95 (for over a week).

Does anyone know what would be causing this? I have considered doing a clean install of the drivers, but not sure what to do?

After doing that and it didn't help then go back to the old driver the one before you updated. My system went through the same problem when I up dated my drivers to the 285.62. Some people could use that driver and a lot of people can't. Good luck to ya
