I've been having an issue where my Nvidia Driver crash then instantly recover itself while playing. The WoW client doesn't close, but the ui reloads. Here is the Nvidia system info from my machine. Any Help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'd like to report I'm also using the same driver / GTX 570 GPU and experiencing driver failures (then automatic recoveries).

Did 4.3 introduce a bug with GTX 570 cards?

Id also like to post here with the same issue. Here is my build.

Intel Core i7 @ 2.8ghz (1st gen)
4gb Corsair XMS3
Zotac GTX580 amp! Edition
Windows 7 Professional - 64bit

Video Drivers- 290.36 Beta and the 285.62 Have been tested, same results for both.

I played Skyrim at Full Ultra for a good 2 or more hours, no driver crash. WoW, 5 minutes in, crashes and recovers.

If this is the error that says display driver has stopped working and recovered, then usually its related to a few things:

Overheating
Bad installion of drivers
Registry error

If you have reinstalled your drivers for your card, then you coudl always disable that msg by going into your registry. Be warned though, if you do not know what your doing then do not attempt this. Doing the wrong thing in your registry can cause serious problems.

How to Disable TDR:

1) open your vista registry editor (Just type regedit to show your registry)
2) go to the key : HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\
3) highlight it then right click on this key
4) Add DWORD TdrDelay
5) Set value of TdrDelay to "0"
6) Reboot

This will stop that msg from displaying. I also have a Nvidia GTX 570 and this fixxed that problem.

I'm having exact same problems too, it's crashing at an increased frequency now. I'm currently using the 285.62 driver. I play Skyrim, Witcher 2, Battlefield 3, Shogun 2 and even Crysis, and none of them crash. Only seems to happen with wow.

My build is

Intel Core i7 2600k @ 3.4GHz
Nvidia GTX 570
16 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3

I think blizzard may have broken the nvidia driver compatability with 4.3, or directx 11 for us, gonna try wow in directx 9... sigh...

Unfortunately, I did exactly this and it had no effect. About an hour later I had a 2-second lag spike in Org which I hoped was the new effect of not getting stuck with the message. But the next day the old "screen goes black followed by the driver reloading and getting the announcement" issue was back.

And for the record, I have the GTX570 and 285.62 driver as well. This is a seriously annoying issue.

having the same issue with my GTX 570. It's happening in WoW only, and i have tried 285, the previous, and the beta 290 drivers. As far as gpu stress test programs say, my graphics card hits 78C as its max temp. Was hoping anyone had some insight on the problem or how to fix it.

Also having this issue. It seems I can play with all the settings on Low, but the second I set it to Good, it crashes.

It's odd because I was playing not 3 hours before this issue started happening, on Ultra no less.

AMD Phenom II x4 940
Asus M4N72-E
4GB OCZ DDR2
BFG GTX260 MAX55CORE

Thanks god I'm not alone. I thought it was a hardware issue and I was about to try to use my warranty.

I'm having the same issue, I can play fine for hours when suddenly the screen mix up the colors and fall back to my desktop displaying a message from an icon near the clock saying that my nvidia driver kerner has recovered from a crash (I don't know how it would display in English because my system is in Brazilian Portuguese).


My system settings are:
Intel core i7 980x
12 GiB Ram
nvidia geforce gtx 580 msi Twin Frozr Ii/oc 1536mb
nvidia driver version 285.62
windows 7 64 bits with latest updates
Corsair 950w power supply
23" led display with hdmi connection
2 TB sata3 hdd
Asus P6X58D-E motherboard

I play in 1920x1080@60hz with maximum possible settings, I'm not forcing any setting in nvidia control panel.

Also, when the first error happens it keeps happening in more frequency until I reboot my computer.

This is a photo taken from my mobile when the error happened few seconds before the desktop be displayed and I force quit wow from task manager:

It has hapened several times with me and two times it could not recovery. one of them the screen got black and I rebooted had to reboot the computer and other the screen displayed colors like a rainbow and slowly got black then I had to reboot (but the computer was still working because when I pressed the power button I could hear the shutting down sound from windows)

I hope this helps.

running the driver on a box that has a 460 in it and a box that has a 580 in it with no issues. Spent about 5 hours online last night and I run both boxes at the highest graphics setting possible. Box boxes have WOW set to use DX11. Only change in the driver configuration is the same one I make on every version - I change the power profile in the 3d settings from Adaptive to prefer maximum performance

The box with the 460 in it has a 1000 watt PSU and the box with the 580 in it as a 1200 watt psu.
