HI ALL!

I'm on W7 x64 Ultimate since a few months. After the last clean install, I got the display and nForce drivers from nvidia (258.96_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_international_whql & 15.51_nforce_win7_64bit_whql). First time I had the "Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered" at the opening of a video file in media player and the second when playing a flash video in youtube... I went through different board looking for a working solution but was unable to find one... If someone had the same problem and could manage to find a solution, help would be appreciated... Thanks.

650i SLI Stock Mobo
Dual Stock Geforce 9800gt SLI
(had an AGEIA PhysX card wich I removed a few months ago as you can see browsing past topics I wrote on the board)

Thanks.

Well just a guess here but lately it seems that the newer releases of Nvidia's drivers may well be being touted as backward compatable but in practice people with older cards have problems such as your's. My guess would be to revert to a driver that you have previously found to be stable on your system. I'm still using 195.62 and found it to be perfect for my needs.

I'll try that and let you know about it. I keep all the installer I use for each clean install on an extern hard drive : it's sometimes very usefull. By the way I saw a topic about nforce drivers... But I couldn't reach the conclusion wether I should use or not use the one from nvidia... What about that... Thanks

Just my opinion but I would use the Nvidia dirvers, less chance of anything being "optimized to help our customers" ;)

Just asking because of this topic... http://www.my630i.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=4223 I will try with older drivers and let you know.

Anyway could this be RAM related? I only have 4Go using W7 x64. Is this enough? And thanks again for your, always fast, answer...

I am using the latest nforce drivers on my system with no issues. The amount of ram you are using is fine. Remember, the amount of ram included on your graphics cards is also included in the total amount of ram so you are better off with 64-bit. I've read a lot about the older drivers being better for older hardware.

FOUND THAT ON GURU3D : http://forum.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=305277

Don't forget to disable driver signing on bootup (F8), I used to get that error on Windows 7 but after I disabled it, all the drivers works fine. Currently using 191 beta. /

Maybe I will try that before using the old one and see what it does... Using CS5 and other 3D app's I would have appreciated to use the latest driver.

+1 on what billy and Kevin said.


Some of the newer can drivers sometimes don't mesh with certain cards. The drivers I have linked are some of the most stable and are still being used by some. Drivers in the higher 180's and low 190's seemed to have issues of different kinds for some. Drivers 196.21 are also very good.
Try these and see if they will be compatable with Win7.

Thanks to all for taking time to answer...

I can read " Drivers 196.21 are also very good " but I'm a CS5 hard user so I will test 197.45 WHQL drivers first ( " Recommended for the best performance with the new GPU-accelerated features in Adobe CS5 " ). I sometimes play GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City too so I was first thinking about using the 196.21 as you requested with a SLI profile patch because SLI support for this game was only supported since the release of the 197 drivers ( " Adds SLI and multi-GPU support for top new gaming titles including ... Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes from Liberty City " ) but as I said before I will test the 197.45 before as they include best support for CS5 according to Nvidia.

So I will test :

- 197.45_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_international_whql (13.4.2010)
- 15.51_nforce_win7_64bit_whql (6.10.2009 / last release foe the 650i SLI)

And I'll let you know about that... You can always give feedback if it sounds to you like a bad idea... :roll: And thank you again for your support.

Hi all and first of all : thanks a lot for your support. I have been running my xps a few days since the last clean install and everything seems to work well....

I used W7x64 Ultimate and the following drivers...

- 197.45_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_international_whql (13.4.2010)
- 15.51_nforce_win7_64bit_whql (6.10.2009 / last release foe the 650i SLI)

I'll let you know if something goes wrong but so far so good....

Thanks again...
