    8800gt Driver Problems

    I bought a Gainward 8800GT yesterday to replace my dying 7300GS, and I keep getting the 'Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.' error message whenever i play a game or at between 10-30seconds into 3DMark06.

    Does anyone know anyway to fix this?

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    Did you update the driver when swapping card?

    If not - nip to the nvidia website and get the newer drivers and install them.

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    So you've tried the 169.02 WHQLs and the 169.04 Betas?

    Does the error occur when trying to run any 3d rendering? i.e. do any games work

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    They arent actually WHQL yet, but yeah ive tried both of those. It will load a game for a few minutes and then the screen will go black, the game will exit and then i will get that error message in a bubble - same with 3DMark06

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    There's a few google articles about that error, and it seems to be caused by a number of things,

    i) Running 2 monitors
    ii) Having Dreamscene enabled
    iii) Ram Timings not set to 1:1/Incorrectly set in the bios

    There's 113 pages on that error !
    NVIDIA Forums -> nvlddmkm stopped responding in Windows Vista

    Thats the first thought I had when he said he's using Vista 64. More specificly, if it a video driver/Vista 64 conflict? That could be quite possible, especially with the card being new... From what I understand, Vista 64 is still a little flakier with hardware than the 32-bit version is...

    Anyone out there using Vista 64-bit get the new GT card to work?

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    Got the same issue. Am running Vista 64 and 8800GT. Have tried the 169.02 and 169.04 but the same error as the error in the top post.

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    Yay someone else - glad to know it isnt my card then xD

    Guess weve got to wait for Microsoft to make them WHQL before they will work Hope they work after that

    Forgot to mention that my card is a Gainward, has "BLISS 8800GT PCX" on a sticker on the front of the box.

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    Just tried the drivers that came in the box, Forceware 167.26, still has the same problem. Also thought the card was running hot at 69C so ran the fans full, now runs at 54C with the same issue.

    The computer does run stable when graphics card is set to "Standard VGA", but what good is that?

    Re: 8800gt Driver Problems

    Strange, mine only runs @ 51'C. But ive tried every possible driver aswell as the standard VGA... which wont even let 3DMark06 run on mine...
