# infamous "nvidia display driver stopped responding and has recovered."

## Recommended Posts

Please bear in mind that this isn't an even remotely finished project.  Graphics optimizations are still yet to be performed, so I believe you can count on better performance, and better usage of resources in the various modes once the Devs circle back around to graphics/graphics optimizations.

Oh, yeah I know.  Like I said, I'm sure there's better stuff to work on atm.  I'm patient.  It's just a bummer, and I'm hoping they fix it in the future is all.

I have a 780 and haven't had this problem so it isn't a problem with all nvidia cards.  Closest thing I have is that enabling shadow play causes windows desktop manager to crash (not a game issue).

Some things to possibly try

A lot of cards come pre-overclocked.  Is yours?

-Asus Strix GTX 970 GPU - all drivers up to date

Asus Strix GTX 970 is factory overclocked - 1253MHz (reference is base/boost 1050/1178). Worth a try.

Yeah, like I said, I know its related to the GPU and Windows Timeout Detection, but it only happens with this game.  I'm not downclocking and accepting poorer performance for all my other games just to get slightly better performance for this game.  I'll wait for GL to optimize this game.

My MSI- GTX 680's do not have this problem....just give'n the devs more info

So, I didn't crash a single time ever since I made my last post... Yet tonight on the same day of a new patch, I crashed 5 times in the span of 3 hours.... This is very frustrating.

Interesting development in this thread. My specs aren't all that much up to snuff as some of the posters in here (i7-930, 8GB RAM, Radeon 5970, DX58SO mobo), but I have no problems with this game whatsoever. Not a single crash.

Problem solved!

After trying everything else i totaly forgot about clocking my gpu down.

I clocked it down yesterday by about 80 mhz memory and core .

I only have slightly less performance and the game runs nice and stabil!

Be sure to let us know if it runs nice and stable after a couple weeks or so.

My graphics card is gtx 580 hydro copper. I have all the sliders down as far as possible:
770 Mhz GPU clock
2000 Mhz Memory clock

I have this same issues around 3 to 8 times an hour whilst playing. It can happen a few minutes after log in or can be 30min after. No pattern.

My comp is basically a budget gaming comp but it's specs are definitely superior to my bf's comp and he runs the game perfectly. He doesn't run with a NVIDIA card though. I've tried a few random 'fixes' but nothing worked so far. Currently feel like I wasted \$40 on a black screen :"(

As the first step, please, try to check the temperature of GPU right after the crash happens with a program like GPU-Z

I get this sometimes about 6 seconds after exiting/entering a port.

Never had a crash in any other circumstance.

Hi Ink,

Thanks for the suggestion of what to use to check temps. Just crashed after about 10min of play then. The temp reading was 54 degrees celcius. From what I know that isn't too bad?

Doesn't seem to be a pattern re when it crashes for me. I've tried lowering my graphics to medium as well but still occuring.

Just some data in case it helps solve the issue. Over the space of this minute I logged on and basically crashed immediately.

Did you try to set Compatibility mode with Windows 7? And what is the temperature of GPU when crash happens?

same problem

Have you tried the workarounds like re-installing drivers, checking GPU temperature, setting Compatibility mode with Windows 7?

I was getting this about 2 months ago when playing BF3...  Couldnt figure it out for the life of me as it had never happened before and was complettly random.  I took my machine apart and dusted EVERYTHING with compressed air.  I had some serious bunnies in my fans and heat sink.  Cleaned everything up, put it back together and havent had an issue since.  Now I just plan on doing it 1/month.  Not sure that will solve YOUR issue, but I hope it helps....  Good luck!

I have the same problem (NVidia display stopped working...)

I installed MSI Afterburner and lowered core and memory clock of my GTX 770 and it worked.

But I agree that this issue should be addressed

Temperature is always 60c on the gpu when it happens.

and compatibility mode with Windows 7? also, as it has been mentioned above, turn off gpu overclock in case you use it

Tried compatability with W7 - wouldn't open the game when I changed it. Still getting crashes every 15min or so.
