What is causing this problem ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I started getting this error on the system in my sig a couple weeks back as soon as soon as I overclocked.The following is the error:

"Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 285.38 stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

Today I removed the overclock and the error has not occurred yet. I researched something about it but couldn't find valuable info. Does anyone happen to know how or why it is caused ? And a way how to resolve the issue?

Thanks.

sometimes overclocking instability can cause corrupted drivers, best do a clean install of your driver or search for driver updates

once I corrupted my OS because of unstable CPU overclocking

This is a fairly common problem. Your best bet is to revert back to the last stable set of drivers you had. Or if this is a fresh install, then find an earlier version from NVIDIA's site.

To do this, you first want to download and install Driver Sweeper from Phyxion. Then, uninstall your current drivers through Window's add/remove program feature. After this is complete, boot into safe mode and run Driver Sweeper to remove any left over registry bits.

When Driver Sweeper is completed boot into Windows normally and install the drivers again making sure to check the "clean install" option.

Your problem should be solved.


There is also a larger thread on this same subject in the NVIDIA section of Graphics Card forum. Go have a peek.
