Hi guys i ran into this problem where it says "The display driver stopped working and has recovered" while playing Guild Wars 2. Other then that it never happens even when playing Diablo 3 I never run into this problem. I'll open up GW2 run it for like 5 mins then bam display driver acts up. I dont OC btw. My specs are as follows...
what driver are you on now.?
in the driver details should be a list of games and enhancements, GW2 is probably in there.
it's a newer game and nVidia just released the latest driver recently.
also the Win 8 is a preview release and not actual product, that might have a little say so in your compatibility.
I have the newest driver installed right now, I was thinking maybe its just Windows 8. Imma try installing Win7 and seeing how that works. Thanks for the responses guys, If anything comes to mind please share it in case other people are having the same issues.
if your on the latest driver version then going back to Win 7 should do the trick.
if not then more troubleshooting will be required.
and to be honest with a GTX 580 and not the newer GTX 6 series it's a shame that the older drivers like 296.10 do not have newer game support.
if not using the new features with the 30x.xx series of drivers like nVidia's AA and such then I fail to see any benefits except for game support.
