display driver stopped responding

hey, I sometimes get the error when opening up videos

"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernal Mode Driver, Version 185.81 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

my screen would either:

1) flash black than return with that message on the taskbar
2) BSOD

I havent had this problem before with Windows XP or Vista - I've done a fresh install, Microsoft updated, open a video. ^

It doesnt happen always, its like a 80% chance :x and if it doesnt BSOD, if I reopen the video I dont get the message anymore for awhile.

I've tried everything, reinstalled Windows 7 NVIDIA drivers, and tried the vista ones - no go.

Windows 7 Build 7100

Processor: Intel Core Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 4.00GB (3.50 GB usable)
System type: 32-bit Operating System
Graphics Card: NVIDIA 9800gt

Any help would be great

Didn't you have a Windows update for the Nvidia driver...the WDM that is?

You could also check here for Windows 7 Nvidia drivers:

Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

You stated it's a Windows Kernel driver.

You need to locate the WDM. MS WHQL Certificate

Didn't you get a notice from Windows Update that a new driver was available for your card?

Make sure Windows Update is set to include recommended updates also.

try this link:

http://www.google.com/search?q=NVIDIA+9800gt+WDM+windows+7+driver&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1

Depending on your chipset, it might be a ggod idea to go to Intel's site and get the latest chipset update (of course you need a Intel chipset)

Well, I'm having the same problem on my laptop but the driver "stops responding" when I'm away from my computer for a couple minutes. It's like win7 turns off the driver once its been a few minutes.

Flash your BIOS

The solution that finally worked for me was flashing my BIOS. I had this problem on Windows 7 64 bit with both an ATI and Nvidia card. My video performance increased slightly as well. My motherboard is a Gigabyte S-series EP35-DS3R and the afflicted video cards are an ATI Radeon HD 5750 and Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT.

Hi guys! I solved problem, at least for my video card. The problem is that video card has too less voltage. Of course be careful with this. Somewhere I read that video card doesn't work good with RAM. I don't know technical problems. I raised default voltage from 1.035 to 1.062 and everything is working!! Be careful - max voltage is 1.087 (I read somewhere) - you can kill video card. Good Luck!
