Nvidia kernel driver has stopped working
I've been having this problem for a very long time but no matter what I did I couldn't fix it. Usually during games or videos, randomly, my screen goes black, GPU resets itself and screen comes back 4-5 seconds later. There's absolutely nothing that triggers the problem. This is very annoying in games like League of Legends because even a 1 sec lag can get you killed. One particular thing I noticed is that google chrome stops working after screen comes back and I have to restart it. I tried to rollback drivers, try full screen or window modes, turn off aero theme, nothing helped so far. Card isn't faulty because there's nothing wrong with colors or clock values after this occurs, it just keeps working fine. Exact moment it happens. When this problem happens, GPU usage goes 100% and I wasn't doing anything different, it's totally random. [img]http://i45.tinypic.com/2qx92zm.jpg[/img] I'm using GTX 285, 301.42, Win7 64 Pro.
