The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue
Error code: 7

I keep crashing, is there anybody that can help? I tried the W7 fix, that did not work. I installed older drivers, after installing the newest ones, nothing helped.

64 kilobyte primary memory cache

I would appreciate help....

I wonder if it can be fixed with afterburn software?

Did you remove the card and uninstall the driver then re-install everything? That, or try to load from a restore point in Windows. Hope that helps, it's what I would try.

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.
