Driver failure

Recommended Posts

I have a Nvidia gtx-760 video card. Normaly it works just fine video movies etc. but in game mode, FSX, P3D, it will black-out and it will display that the driver failed. Drivers up to date, getting good cooling I think. Checking warranty not very old. Software bottleneck? pull for repair..............thank you for your help.............Ray Rentschler

What Driver are you using. I had problems with CTD's and BSOD's on anything later than 335.23. Since rolling back to 335.23 all seems stable now. Might be worth a try anyway.

I had that as well. A lot of people are reporting this.  I think that the latest drivers are really pounding the hardware, and my ramping up all fans in my system from 8 percent (default) to 30, while flying a sim...has reduced the driver disconnect to around 5 to 10 percent of the time.  I gain 3-5 extra FPS across the board with the 337.88's so have put up with the much reduced driver/card disconnect and/or recovery cycle. The latest driver is taking down CPU bound overhead and so is working the (heat...) G-card harder than former driver suites.
