    Nvidia GT 640 tdr_video_failure BSOD


    Hi There!
    Recently while booting my computer up from being off for quite a while, it noticed it hung at the windows 8 login screen. From there I tried to reboot, only for it it blue screen on the desktop. The blue screen error message was "tdr_video_failure". Just before it blue screened, I noticed that I got a "The display driver has stopped working and recovered" message pop up in my taskbar. Here is what that error looks like. I then rebooted again and my computer worked fine for the rest the day. The next day, when I turned my computer on from a shut down, I got the same problems - the blue screen, error message in task bar and hanging on boot. I then tried totally uninstalling the nvidia suite and drivers and cleaning my registry with CCleaner. I thought I had solved the problem, but today I got the same problems again! I have tried many benchmarking and burn in tests and monitored the temperature read out from them. The GPU never gets above 55 degrees Celsius. I also played quite a bit of counter strike yesterday, and the computer did not hang or freeze once. The computer only has issues in the morning and they always seem to go away after a few reboots. Any ideas?

    Specs:
    ? CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.93 GHz
    ? Motherboard - MSI 7525
    ? Ram - 2 x 2gb Kingston DDR3
    ? Graphics - Gigabyte Nvidia GT 640
    ? Hard Drive - Western Digital Blue 500gb
    ? Hard Drive 2- Western Digital Blue 1tb
    ? OS - Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit
    ? Power Supply - Antec NeoPower 550w
    ? Case - IN WIN G7

    Also, this only seems to happen on a cold boot, when the computer has been off for a while.

    Newest Nvidia drivers? They were causing screwy things with my laptop so I went back to 344.75. Don't know if it will fix your particular problem but worth a try.
