That, or try to load from a restore point in Windows. Hope that helps, it's what I would try. | Report abuse Reply to evilsizer ChantalHarvey January 25, 2013 11:15:13 PM thanks, trying now. | Report abuse Reply to ChantalHarvey hedwar2011 Windows 7 Expert January 25, 2013 11:58:15 PM ChantalHarvey said:I wonder if it can be fixed with afterburn software? You have an nVidia card, so no, afterburner will not help because it's not compatible with nVidia chipsets, just AMD (ATI). You may want to go as far as downloading GPU-Z or HWInfo and remove the driver and see what your voltage and heat readings are from the GPU. Where are you getting the drivers from? nVidia or an alternate source? You might also try updating to the latest version of Direct X and see if that helps. | Report abuse Reply to hedwar2011 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection -help> Related ressources: ForumOpenGL driver lost connection ForumWindows 7 a virus I can't detect, OPENGL , bitminer, reset network ForumOpenGL games on GeForce 9500GT?
