Oh darn....... I cannot get into the BIOS setup.... my USB keyboard doesn't pick up the key hits before Windows starts :-( Tried changing USB ports, but none seem to work. And I don't have a PS/2 keyboard anymore. Now what? Take the battery out !? *Sigh*

USB keyboards work fine outside windows. If it was working in Windows setup then it should work in bios. I think you are just not doing it fast enough. You need to press F2 repeatedly a few times just after you press the power button until the bios setup appear or a message appears.
Anyway you could also download the Windows Bios Update utility its 3rd one in the list but make sure you disable your antivirus and all other programs running before you update.

Finally, finally managed to get into my bios pages (after taking the CMOS battery out for a while) and updated the bios to 2.2 ! Yay ! Now on to those other files...... not tested the game yet, want to update everything before I re-install it.

Did all the updates now..... only the NVidia driver is still older (as per one of the posts above), and my Farm Simulator kept running for 15 minutes.... so it seems to have helped. I DID still see the NVidia message pop up again when I paused the game for a bit..... so maybe I now need to get the latest driver still?

In any case, thanks for all the help and I've learned something new .... I really CAN update the motherboard software :-)

Great well done. It seems that your computer needed some other updates than just the NVIDIA driver. Yes I would recommend you to try the latest NVIDIA driver now and you might not get the error again. Anyway you can always reinstall 347.88 again if it gets any worse! Make sure you use DDU everytime though. Also keep your PC clean with CCleaner and MS DISK Cleaner, check all system files and do all Windows updates.
Your welcome and best of luck.

Question 11-05-2016, 21:10 | posts: 83 | Location: in the Kingdom

this only happens when either

1. card overheats

2. to high of an overclock

things that will determine.

what are the normal temps when not doing things that make it crash?

what are the temps when doing things that make it crash?

when was the last time you opened up the computer and cleaned it out?

Just to let you know my latest test results on some of the recent Nvidia drivers:

v347.88 - NO TDR errors!
v350.12 - Some TDR errors
v372.70 - Rare TDR errors
v372.90 - NO TDR errors! (Update: Rare TDR errors!)
v375.70 - TDR errors
v375.95 - Crazy TDR errors!
v376.19 - Crazy TDR errors!

The most stable drivers for me so far with no TDR errors are 347.88 & 372.9.

I've been suffering TDR's for some time (but only in browsers regardless of h/w acceleration) across multiple cards and systems so I knew it wasn't hardware related (event id 4101), but never happened in games. Steady trickle throughout the day (every day) whilst browsing at random. It always recovers after a momentarily black screen, but it was annoying nonetheless. Tried tons of drivers, and tried clean installs using DDU. No help.

All the usual advice floating around never worked (change power savings, change profile to max performance for chrome etc, play around in bios, swap psu, swap ram, bump card voltage, tweak TDR delay, turn off hardware acceleration in browser etc, nothing worked all worthless)

What did work was playing around in chrome://flags and disabling smooth scrolling, since then no more TDR errors in the event logs with nvidia and chrome (GTX 580 & Latest driver 376.33) are all good now without any TDR.

I played with some other flags too from a chrome tweaking guide like rendering threads = 4 and stuff, but it was the smooth scrolling disable that solved it for me long term. No more TDR errors.

I will have to try re-installing firefox and disabling the smooth scrolling on that too (since this was the main reason for me switching to chrome, because firefox suffered the same TDR event id 4101).

I don't get and never have had tdr's in games only web browsers from default settings in OS and browsers, and if you do then it could be the card on it's way out instead. (especially if it ends up unrecoverable with a 0x116 or 0x117 BSOD)

Don't download third party drivers from your motherboard website as they are rarely updated. Ideally you would use the latest drivers.

Thought I would share this for anybody else out there, as this has always been one of my pet peeves that has plagued and bugged me for some time...these random TDR's on Win7 x64 with my GTX 580 on drivers 350.12+

Since my last post I've had more time to investigate this problem across multiple systems on Windows 7 x64 and fermi cards at least after purchasing more hardware.

After having multiple systems all exhibiting the same behaviour on Win7 x64, i can say it isn't a hardware problem. The fact that TDR doesn't occur with old drivers proves this point also.

Any driver > 347.88 on fermi always causes a TDR when in firefox or chrome sporadically at random (and usually while playing videos on youtube), and sometimes even on the desktop itself at idle...

And while <= 347.88 works correctly without any TDR's on Fermi, I wanted to ideally use recent drivers (384.76 Tested) as older drivers don't have profiles for newer games like F! 2015 etc, so using old drivers were out the question for me.

After much work of elimination I think I have found the root trigger of the TDR's on Windows 7 x64 at least.

Turning off the Aero transparency seems to stop the TDR's whilst in firefox and chrome under Windows 7 x64 on drivers >=347.88.

Aero transparency always worked <=344.75 without TDR's, but as we know that was before Windows 10 drivers were introduced shortly afterwards.

Since doing this I haven't had a TDR in several days with any of the newer drivers whilst in firefox or chrome! and have browsed lot's of videos for hours without a dreaded TDR!.

You can still keep Aero, just not the transparency (which includes drop shadows)...

Let me know if this also works out for you as I haven't filed a bug report...yet.

Open regedit then -
Navigate to -
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Graphics Drivers.
Right click on the open field and click on New / DWORD (32bit) Value,
Then name it: TdrDelay -> double click it -> Set the value to 8.
Restart system and check.

Can't understand why people have issues with Hardware Acceleration . I've never had issues with any of the version , browsers or anything with hardware .

It must be wrong bios settings, power savings, not updated bios, windows not set correctly, bad antivirus , bad ram, bad PSU , bad connection or just bad or dodgy hardware. Bad Hard Disks could also affect , also heat on other parts, not just GPU and CPU.
cpu it will 99.9% never be the issue on almost most incidents , just maybe Voltage settings.

Never disable TDR .

The only time I had TDR issues is with bad nvidia drivers in Vista and Win 7
