nvidia driver is not reponding?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, Everytime I'm doing simple things whether its surfing the net, writing an email. I seem to always get these icon pop ups which I found two pictures online that resemble what I get.

I've tried everything from taking out ram, uninstalling and re-installing drivers, reverting to old drivers. The only thing I can think of is the (Timeout Detection and Recovery T.D.R) Mind you it comes up every blue moon. Makes a freeze, black screen, reboot or even a blue screen of death.

If you could help me out that'll be great.


SPECS:

CPU:amd 8350

RAM:8gb ram kingston 1333 mhz

HDD/SSD:
500 gb hdd

1tb hdd

60 kingston ssd

GPU: Geforce gts 450 1gddr5

Motherboard: Asrock 970DE3/U3S3

PSU: Antec 550watt bronze certified

This could be caused for several reasons.

Could be the card itself, drivers, motherboard, ram or the PSU not giving proper power.
I had read few easy workouts

1) As you state one of the solutions is to tweak the TDR. how to
2) Try removing sticks of memory, or running memtest outside of windows and see if you get any error, people recommend at least phase 7 that will take several hours, but you can get an overall function with a couple.
3) Go to Nvidia Control panel and set "Performance"instead "Adaptive" in your settings.
4) If you don't mind, change "For performance" at windows visual effects, that will change your hud to Classic, that will relief some RAM.

Most the time it happens when loading traffic, like gaming, rendering or editing, I know you said it happens randomly but let's start from there.
As said, the possibilities are many.

Also:
Do you had upgraded bios lately?
Do you have BSOD? if so, disable automatic restart when BSOD at bios so you can take note of errors given.
Are you running the newest drivers?

I've tweaked around with the TDR and it seems to be running ok for now.

Though I haven't had this problem with my old 6950 at all. Just this card, mind you its used. I've done all that you've stated, and nothing has worked and its sort of the same. I think its the card.

I'm confused is it working or don't?

Yeah it's one of the symptoms from a card is dying too, if you can test your card in a different rig that will say much of the card itself.
The same for the other component I mentioned, what's your card temperatures (idle/load)? if you don't know you can download realtemp or gpu overclocker like precision or msi afterburn (Don't overclock it, is just to read temps).

Yeah that"s how I fixed it.These new GeForce cards have what"s called power mizer technology I don"t know why because they require a pile of power to run.I see this on the net a lot of people frustrated here"s how to fix it.Make sure all pc components are clean paste is on GPU.Reset CMOS to make sure IRQs are assigned correctly sometimes BIOS can become confused with install of new card.Open Nvidia control panel select managae 3d settings scroll over to the tab program settings select internet explorer go to power management mode switch to prefer maximum performance. I aloso chosse this setting under the global settings tab may stop games from crashing as well.Hope this helps.

Sorry peope that did not fix it.This seems to be an issue with Internet Explorer 9.I can surf fine through Google Chrome or upgrading the browser to Internet Explorer 10.
post #8 of 9
Upgrading to IE10 does not seem to fix the problem.For some reason the hi power Nvidia cards do not seem to agree with IE.I am using Google Chrome as default browser with no issues whatsoever.If anyone has a simpler solution I"d love to hear it.It may be a problem with flash player inside IE causing the crash whhen playing youtube videos etc.
post #9 of 9
Just to let everyone know I downgraded the flash player in my IE explorer browser and am now able to surf without the display driver crashing so I believe the problem is with the flash player
