Nvida Drivers has stopped Responding OPen GL error code 8

Hello everyone and thx for you time! its much appreciated.

I'v been running my current computer for about over a year now with almost no problems that I couldn't Iron out my self.I'v done a little research and the little that I found did not help

So ONLY when I'm in desktop or watching a movie,two minutes in or soo the screen will go black then come back after a few seconds,then I get the Open GL error code 8.Here is what Iv tried:

Of course everything is update,no viruses.
Games for hours and hours in Battlefield 3 Ultra settings @120hz

*I tried every know driver for my cards MSI GTX 580 in SLI ,with a clean install and Driver sweep each time.

*Tried the Register cleaner using CC cleaner

*Manual changed Powermizer values setting in Registry(PowerMizer,PerfLevel,PowerMizerAC,and one other one.with reboot, to no effect.

*Under clocked with Afterburner! now I just read a post stating that The underlclock may not be its True value?? with afterburner?? but tried various voltage setting with no effect.

*One thing I did notice is that when I uninstall the sound driver for my Creative XFI card this error does not occur,thats with the Drivers installed for the cards??

*Checked to see if error occurs in single GPU mode,and it does but with less time on black out screen issue,still same error code

*Ran Mem test,results OK

*Ran hard drive error test,Results ok

* Ran various GPU benchmarks with no probs very good Frames.

* So I'm thinking it has to do with the sound drivers and GPU drivers conflicting?? not sure thow,

Anything suggestions will help thx. :fou:

    I'm using VLC player but, even If Im not playing a movie! it happens.

    For example no programs running,I have basic windows 7 theme set,and I get up for 2 mins and not touch my mouse,then it happens then!With no activity it happens,if im using the mouse and browsing the internet then its fine,but the second the mouse stops moving for a min the prob occurs,sometimes causing me to have to restart in order to play a game.Other than this prob my computer runs Fine!.
  5. This error with The open GL, does not occur with out any sound drivers installed.mobo or third party!I sat their and ran a test Where with sound drivers and graphics drivers isntalled it takes about1-2 min with no mouse activity then it occurs.If i Just unistall the Sound card drivers the prob stops.These drivers where just updated 10/25/2012
  6. Did you report the problem to Creative Technology?

    It's their driver that's causing the fault.

    Isn't there a driver version that was just posted today?

    LOL well what do you know they did just posted up new ones TODAY! Hmm ok well I'll give those a try and see,most likey that was the prob,Because the driver before the ones today weren't updated for a year or so,then they came out with ones last week!they must have been buggy!
  8. OK so I figured out what the prob was,30 min with no activity and no errors!But it was not the sound drivers.
