    Nvidia driver has stopped working and recovered!!!


    Whenever i play a game, after playing for 5 minutes, my screen freezes and the game becomes "Not responding". I have to go to the task manager and close it. This happens for graphic intensive games like GTA 5 and Battlefield 4. I am using the latest Nvidia drivers. Any help would be appreciated.

    Honestly those games are going to push a laptop to its limits especially if trying to use higher graphics settings. Even a laptop with a discrete GPU will be taxed heavily. First thing, are you sure you aren't overheating?

    I am running them at the lowest settings possible. I am quite sure that it is not an overheating issue since i was monitoring it using Speccy.The only thing that happens(sometimes) when it crashes is that the disk usage is 100%. If it is a TDR issue, how do i solve it?

    Did you go to the Microsoft link I posted in other thread? It talks about registry settings if you click on the sidebar topic there. There is also this: https://forums.geforce.com/default/t...1-02-23-2014-/

    I take no responsibility just like Microsoft and the author of the linked utility. Everything at your own risk.
