    nVidia driver 306.97 crashes a lot


    I am getting crashes with NVidia driver 306.97, especially when using Premiere Pro CS6.

    I have an nVidia GT 240.

    Isn't this the latest driver?

    What do you mean by crashes, be specific. If possible post your error logs here.

    MHM, go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and download the latest driver for your graphics card.

    Updated: looks like you already have latest driver.

    I have been having same problem since last few days, but i think Microsoft FixIt fixed it. No more crashes so far.
    Go to this website: "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista
    Download Microsoft Fix It, change compatibility to "Previous Version of Windows".
    Run it and restart.
    Let me know if that fixs your problem.
