Nvidia is actually requesting people send in effected cards to help them diagnose the issue. It's recommended that you roll back to 275.33 for the time being.

It's unrelated to NV drivers. Go to Firefox/Youtube/Flashplayer and disable "Hardware Acceleration".

Give it a try.

Thanks very much guys! Wasn't aware of this problem. I have disabled acceleration, will see how it goes. +REP

Next thread to be made "Getting REALLY Tired of 500 Internal Server Errors"

Well stop using Firefox then. eek.gif I had the same problem with 285.62 when I upgraded to Win 7 two weeks ago - at least ten TDR errors in three days all while using Firefox (mainly trying to type in the Google search box). As soon as I learned that was the problem I immediately switched to Opera and I haven't had a crash since. Its been five days now without an issue.

I know its not a perfect solution, but why bang your head against the wall waiting for Nvidia and Mozilla to work this out? I understand it can happen with any browser that supports hardware acceleration (IE9, Firefox, Chrome), so that was part of my reason to go with Opera. I actually kind of like it and its better than constant black screens.

I believe I fixed the issue. I disabled hardware acceleration in Firefox and haven't had a crash yet on overclock settings.

I really don't like anything but Firefox. Just not my style.

Thank you very much guys!
