    This is very rare and not very annoying but sometimes while playing the casual game I get an error saying something like Nvid_5345(driver number) has stopped working and it shuts the game, and my res drops to 800x600. Anyone might know how and why it happens? It's very rare and not an annoyance, but i'm just curious. Thanks:D

    Re-Install buddy are they the latest driver's from the nvidia site? Although its not annoying its still good to make sure cause it could be a malfunction in your gpu. Gimme a shout when its fixed k? We must catch up :D

    usually its one of three things:

    bad PSU
    overheating/bad card
    faulty system ram

    you dont specify which card either, if its nvidia or ATI

    It's with either cards my 5770 xfire or GTX 260. They are perfectly fine temps in the 67 degrees Celcius range at full load. It's only happened once on both my systems. Once in Crysis and once in BF:BC2, thats about it, it's never happened before. The error was "The nvid_disp32 has crashed" I can't remember the exact number but that is very close. Nothing bad has happened. so, I'm not really worrying. The PSU is fine and ram is fine. And the error has never happened again on both systems. Though I'm still curious what could be the cause, just a random failure of the drivers?

    theres no way you're getting an NV_disp driver crashing on an ATI system, since its an nvidia driver file.

    More can overheat on the cards than just the GPU, btw.

    NOO, you've got it all wrong, sorry I typed it quickly. I was just giving you an example of what it would say, since the last time I received this error (like 5 months ago) was on my Nvidia system. It's never happened again on either systems now, so it must of been a drivers issue. Well it seems the issue has been resolved after those drivers I had, and it only happened with those drivers. ..........It was Cat 10.3 and I can't remember the Nvidia drivers, too many numbers, But i've been constantly upgrading the drivers instead of waiting a few months, then doing it.
