    NVIDIA's upcoming beta driver suite has been leaked by sections of the Chinese media. The new driver, GeForce 186.24 (6.14.11.8624) is dated 23/06/2009, and follows the release of 186.18 by over two weeks. Due to the lack of a release-notes document from NVIDIA, not much is known about this released except that it expands the supported products list significantly, adding several IGPs and some GPUs belonging to the new 40 nm GT21x series. Be cautioned, this is a beta release that does not originate from NVIDIA's website, and is not guaranteed.

    Could be a dying card. Mine did that all the time and I had to RMA it... three times in the past year.

    could be a high OC if you OC high it will be stable at the dektop or in some games sometimes but if you boot something like crysis the card cant handle the clocks or its drawing way to much power because of the clocks so the card trips if your oc'ing tone it down. see what happens.

    Some drivers are more prone towards this. I've been having it for a year and a half. But, it's your computer's overall stability that causes the crashes. If you had 680i, that would be the first thing I'd look into to - my Q6600 was overclocked and it kept happening. Now, it's at stock because of nvlddmkm.

    no way, p45 chipset, corsair 1000w, 4 gigs, q9550, all STOCK, no OC, i can play during hours l4d, cod4, ghostbusters, transformers 2..

    the only way that i find it's disable multi-gpu (i have 1 gtx295), when i disable the multi-gpu the games with problems works fine, mirror's edge, grid, dirt.

    i find on google a lot of info and a lots of users with the same problem, on ati & nvidia, the problem it's on the fuck*ng vista, i hope win 7 final will be perfect than the last RC, and i hope that the problem dissapear

    Mine does it since day 1 if i overclock it too much, so i wouldn worry about it. Some drivers are very prone to it, on some i can oc much higher

    You realize that there is a registry hack that keeps the driver from crashing and restarting like that in vista. You can turn the recovery feature off - worked like a charm for me. - may work for you.

    That is possibly because you are CPU limited with a stock speed of 2.4GHz.

    I had the same issue with an 8800Ultra, overclocking beyond 2.8GHz caused crashes - that is until I adjusted fan speeds. Even then, I found that wasn't enough during summer, so I bought aftermarket GPU cooling and have never had the dreaded nvlddmkm since. This was on both 680i and x48 boards, using E6320 and Q6700.

    This is the registry mod. Set the TDR level to 0 to disable detection.

    Also do this - conflicting software may hang the driver long enough for Vista to think that the proverbial fan is revolving in sh*t.

    Basically, your driver would not crash in XP - the recovery feature is new to Vista, if you disable it, Vista will act more like XP and will no longer crash - this mod is not necessary for Win 7 as it rocks my socks.
