    The title is saying all, how to fix that. The card Galaxy 9800GT and drivers that I`m using 177.83_geforce_winvista_64bit_english_whql.
    The Vista won`t let me go above 700 1750 1100.
    Above 700 core and 1750 Display driver stopped responding error.
    Before this card I had Palit 9600gso 768mb I had never seen this error and I have had pushed the card to the max (freezing artifacts).
    On Galaxy 9800GT even at 1150 (2300 memory) no artifacts but GPU above 700 and the error come up. A have pushed the card to 740 1850 and it is running Vantage no errors but when I play crysis and 3dmark03 the error is constantly showing. And I had never had freezing or restarting.
    I had a quick look on the net and there are a lot people with same problem and this is not nvidia, ati users have same problem same error message and they are using factory defaults settings.

    what are you card temps your card might be running too hot or you don't have enough power to run the card, games like crysis are gpu and cpu hungry could cause an overload

    If you overclock the card beyond stability, the driver will stop working.

    Ok but why with 9600GSO never once I had encountered that error and I had past the stable overclock till the card stats to freeze com is restarting artifact.
    At 700 1750 it is stable at 710 starts to show the error and is no difference till 770 no freezing no restarting just black screen and driver restart. It is simply strange.

    The worst thing when you are buying card from brand like Galaxy is that you are getting Galaxy card.

    Instability due to overclocking can show itself in many different ways. It doesn't just have to be artifacts. You are pushing your card too hard, and it is crashing.

    Vista Timeout and Recovery....

    Hello all,

    I've been experiencing this mildly on my new Toshiba E105 (Intel GM45/4500MHD) and although I haven't tried this yet, I thought it would be a good idea to post it.

    http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/display/wddm_timeout.mspx

    That page details the registry keys that are used to control the Display Timeout Detection and Recovery (DTDR.) You should notice that the lower portion of the page says:

    This page is intended for developers, so use this information at your own risk.

    iX :D
