Display Driver has stopped responding and has recovered
  1 / 3    
Okay so whenever I play a game on my computer that is actually demanding my graphics driver crashes and I get this message, "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 275.33 stopped responding and has successfully recovered.". I don't know what to do to fix this, my card the GTX 580 (3gig) isn't overheating. Whenever I play a game it will freeze, when this happens I can Control alt delete my way out, but usually the screen goes completely black and I can still here the audio. When the screen goes black strange red square shapes appear on the screen and the only way I can escape is through a Manuel reboot. When I reboot my computer sometimes the red squares return mildly in the background of just the regular windows desktop. What should I do? I've included a picture I took with my phone of the red squares so you'll know what I'm talking about.

I can't promise this will help you at all, but the last time I saw this error with any regularity, it was because of defective memory. Not video card memory, system memory. Doesn't mean that is the problem in your case, but at least worth investigating.

I see it's a 3Gb card, what make and model is it ? if it's a factory overclocked one it might be an unstable overclock.

had a similar kind of problems. I had to uninstall from the device manager, take out the card, and reseat it. or take it out and put it back in in my noob terms. xD

just make sure you have the new drivers AVAILABLE, like in the desktop so you can install again with no problems. and unless you got a 3d monitor, don't even install those drivers.

No, my card is not overclocked and I thought that I was pretty clear when I stated the model as the "NVIDIA geForce GTX 580 3GB 16X PCIe Video Card". And Just out of curiosity how would reseating my gpu stop this problem?

Nvidia generally don't make graphic cards, that's why we asked

card manufacturers like EVGA,PNY,GIGABYTE,GALAXY,Zotac,...etc do

Oh, well I just looked it up. My GPU is: EVGA NVIDIA GTX 580 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E.

So the clocks are 772/1544/2004 and the voltage should be between 1.0v and 1.038v.
Try an older driver like the 270.61.

I've got an EVGA GTX 570 sitting in an ASUS Z68 v-pro with a 2600k proc. that I've just built and I am having the same problem. OP please respond if you find an answer... this is really frustrating. Is your build recent? Also, my graphics card does seem to be at least semi-functional because it will breeze though tough benchmarks and can render demanding games at a high framerate before having the problem. However, in the end, it always does have the problem...

I had exactly the same problem, was running 270.61 without any issues at all, upgraded to 275.33 and boom I kept getting "...driver has stopped responding and has recovered..." followed by a system crash whenever I did anything that demanded the slightest bit of gfx processing (browsing the web, opening firefox, sometimes even at boot, running furmark, anything basically). So I rolled back to the 270.61 drivers which I know worked perfectly before... and guess what, the same bloody problem!!

I just couldn't understand it, were the 275.33 drivers not removed properly? was it a windows update that caused this? who knows! So I decided to go back another version of the driver, to the 266.58 whql version, and voila, no more issues! It actually got so bad that I had to boot into safe mode to uninstall the drivers, I noticed that after uninstalling the drivers that the "NVIDIA Corporation" folder was still present (with files!) in both "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" so I renamed these folders (while in safe mode) and then rebooted back into windows to install the 266.58 drivers.

Here's a direct link, from my research this version does seem to be one the most stable releases of recent times:

Hope this helps.

I am having the same issue and it is driving me insane.

Intel Core I7 2600k
Asus P8P67 M pro
Asus GTX570 HD
8gb Corsair Ram
Agility3 SSD
Corsair 750w psu
Win7 64Bit

Driver crash comes and goes, it will let me watch a couple movies back to back with no issues but open the simplest of things and boom driver 275.33 has stopped and recovered over and over.

Any fixes for this? I have cleaned out and fresh installed the driver a few times to no resolve...

I too have this issue. It just randomly started one day. No amount of cleaning/reinstalling or rolling back to older drivers would fix it. I eventually did a clean reinstall of windows and all was ok.

At first I thought it was one of my cards being faulty but both tested OK individually. I thought it may have been the PCI slot so I swapped them around and still both were OK.

It was fine for a month and then all of a sudden today, it begins again. Not even doing anything, just loading the desktop after login would result in the crash. I do the same thing, uninstall the drivers in safe mode, go back into windows, run driver sweeper and CCleaner. I then reinstall the 266.58 drivers as mentioned in this thread and all seems OK for now (I also opted not to install the 3D drivers and ticked the clean install box from within the driver installer). I had one crash of the nvidia driver when I re-enabled SLI, but no BSOD from it. (normally it crashes in rapid succession then BSOD).

Ive just rebooted and played a short video and loaded a few programs, no crashing. WTF is causing the driver corruption Nvidia? An answer would be nice.

My Setup:
i7 950 stock.
Asus Rampage III Formula
2x Gigabyte GTX 570 factory OC
6GB corsair triple channel
Win 7 Pro x64
WD 1TB Sata3 6GB
Antec True Power Quattro 1000W

update. I had another crash since, but no BSOD, so its a little more manageable, but still highly annoying nonetheless.

I have removed one stick of ram from my machine and thus far no crashes at all. Ive disabled and re-enabled sli, ran videos, opened some video editing progs etc.
Its not a random windows update either has I have the automatic updates disabled since I did the last clean reinstall.

(just trying to provide as much info as possible)

I know this is reaching, but check all you SATA cables and make sure their plugged in all the way.
