Good to be back at 4.0Ghz

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'll let my Grand kids test for stability. A while back, my Grand kids started getting the infamous "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." while playing COD4. I set all my overclocks back to default and I still got the error, although less frequently. I then went about Googling for the solution. After reverting back to Nvidia driver 275.33, cleaning all the dust out of the case, reseating my video cards, and increasing the voltage in Afterburner to 1.037 volts all seems to be well again.
Considering that it was stable for over a year before this happened, I'm convinced that the culprit was the dust build up. I along with everyone else who loves computers wish there was a fool proof way to prevent dust. My case is very well ventilated and has plenty of filters, which I clean regularly. I guess from now on, I'll blow out the case about every six months or so

Actually, I'm pretty sure it was a driver issue.

But anyways, just using se a compressor or a vacuum every few weeks or so like you said will do it. Maybe put panty hose over the intakes for better filtration?
