Gigabyte GTX 670
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600mhz
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
Windows 7 64-bit
I recently built my new system a few days ago and i have been having this error message come up frequently.
"Display driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered. Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
When in-game, the screen freezes for a few seconds, then goes black for a few seconds, error message pops up then i can continue playing but at much reduced fps, (e.g. from 100+ to below 30).
What ive noticed is straight after this issue, while the game is still running, the GPU is at 99% load. (Using GPU-Z)
From my googling, this is a common error, but ive tried so many things and nothing is working so far.
-not using aero in win7
-uninstalling gpu from device manager, rebooting and reinstalling drivers (301.25) from gigabyte disc.
-removing molex adapters from gpu
-setting TdrDelay from 2 seconds to 8 in regedit.
-changing many settings in nvidia control panel.
-more that i cant remember.
if anyone has had this issue and has fixed it somehow, please enlighten me. This is really frustrating.
