I have just gotten my new computer and after I got everything installed and working, I was not even 15 mins into playing Minecraft when I got the error "Nvidia display driver (version number) has stopped responding and recovered"
it happens in every game, at a random time, I can be 3 hours into a Borderlands 2 session and then it will just crash.
It even happens when Im doing nothing on the desktop with only skype and Google Chrome open.
Now I know you have seen about a million of these asking the exact same question.
And I'm as frustrated as you are.
