nividia driver randomly crashes Photoshop on Win7x64
Just bought a brandnew GTX 560Ti and installed with the latest drivers (I had a Radeon 4350 before)on my Win7 x64.
Now I randomly have to see Photoshop CS4 crash with the message "[i]Display driver stopped responding and has successfully recovered[/i]".

After Googling I learned that this has to be some kind of conflict with OpenGL. I disabled that and had no more crashes since but of course I also lost the acceleration featured of CS4.
Will this be fixed in a new driver release? Does anyone know the last driver release where this crash didn't happen?
Since I am not deep into gaming it wouldn't be a problem to install an older driver but the best way of course would be a fix.
Any hints?


P.S.: I searched this forum and found only one similar mentioning in the thread
"[url=http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=207666&st=740&p=1336187]280.26 Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered[/url]"
Since I have no idea what TDR's are or if that what's discussed there really matches my problem I place this as a new thread.

TDR is basically the driver crashing. A lot of people have been experiencing TDRs with browsing and simple tasks. I have the same problem with my gtx580 and premiere pro that you do. The openGL or nvidia driver crashes anytime the GPU actually gets going. I think my issue is simply a defective card, but I won't know until a different card is tested. For now your best bet is to disable the acceleration or try clean installs of various drivers.

Does the problem occur with anything that uses openGl or taxes the gpu? Ie: games or benchmarking tools

I just ran the Unigine Heaven Benchmark with DirectX 11 and OpenGL on high settings for a longer time.
The driver didn't crash, everything was ok even with OpenGL.

I had this crashes on Photoshop only since I own this card.

my entire office got this problem too! (specs @ signature) /sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':sad:' /> and we do that for a living. sometimes the PSDs are damaged after a TDR (i don't know why)... all the work is gone. /down.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':down:' />

you can try driver version 275.33 /yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' /> i hope that helps.

cheers,
cris

Hi,

I bought a Geforce 460 SE less than a year ago, the card was faulty, sent back, got a new one. Since then, I have been getting the same crashes running Gimp, Blender, Photoshop, Alien Arena or others and just random mainly but same issue as original poster above. I updated the drivers a while back, had the latest which stopped the crashing but all mentioned programs would function very slow. I got rid of the drivers, let windows install them, it improved dramatically. However, it still crashes sometimes as has something to do with opengl. So I really don't have a question, but hoping if there is an answer, it'll show here.

Thanks cris, installed 275.33 after your tip and had no crashes since then. /wave.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wave:' />
