    I've found a similar thing with ZOTAC Firestorm, which is their version of Afterburner. Once I stop that running, I get no crashes (so far). Leave it running and I can guarentee Witcher 3 will crash and Chrome will go at some point.

    EDIT - AMD 6300 CPU - 8 Gig RAM - Windows 8.1 - Fully up to date. Firestorm version 2.0.1 using custom fan curve. Nothing else running (I'm a bit anal about things running in the background).

    I am not an Nvidia user however I do use AMD R9 290x and Chrome and with the last 2 build both 10130 and 10135 we are having issues with Chrome and windows 10 as well. From TDR to using chrome with multi monitor issues. Just saying.

    Not sure if this will help but what I have noticed I will get TDR or 1 monitor blanking while Chrome will spike the GPU usage. If I do not use Chrome I get neither issue. The monitor blanking only occurs if I am running a movie with VLC on the HDMI connection on my TV. I have turned on HA in both, in one or the other and off in both and it still occurs.

    And as others have said I also do use MSI Afterburner.

    Gonna search for that in a bit...we have a new "leaked" driver that I am about to try out. But from what I am seeing this is more then just red or green team thing, but something to do with Chrome and Win 10, or just Chrome.

    PS I am not big on the calling the red or green team, I am more concerned in resolving issues.

    I am/was getting that as well. Anyhow just trying to help out, would be nice to determine especially if it cross GPU maker issue aka a Microsoft issue or not.

    Update: I am still getting the "driver stopped responding" error but does not occur as ofte. Hopefully Nvidia will find the cause as it is related to something which changed in the last 3 drivers released. Switching to 347.88 and no erros/problems.

    Where the heck is ManuelG?, he should be providing some kind of update regarding the last 3 drivers causing display driver stopped errors and browser crashes for manypeople. I did not even try the drivers in benches or games due to the crashes on desktop. Low and behold 350.12 is working dandy, though it is starting to get long in the tooth game support wise for recent titles.

    I can't even go back to 350.x, alt-tab causes everything to stutter like mad for about a minute (NVIDIA Surround)

    And enabling / disabling surround hangs the whole machine for about 30+ seconds

    Those bugs are fixed in the 353.x drivers, but they crash my whole machine

    Only completely stable drivers for me are 347.88, but like you say, they are old now

    @Manuel - Do you have any software we can run to 'catch' the problem when it happens? I'm willing to try to help but I'm in the UK so no chance of me getting anywhere near you. I've just had two TDR's withing 10 mins browsing with Chrome. I did have ZOTAC Firestorm running though as it's hot here and need to use the custom curve. Shut it off now so hoping I won't get another.

    :)

    I have a feeling nvidia still cannot replicate the problem.

    You would think they could with amount of people having issue .
    I think the more troubling is it takes many hrs to happen .

    There debugging record would be a lot of noise for them to go through till they find crash , unless they can enable save last X timeframe , I don't know .

    Someone posted that ManuelG posted on twitter that they are trying a fix, I don't know how true, as I don't use twitter .

    I was also having TDR crashes that weren't restricted to FF & Chrome (Illustrator CC 2014, Photoshop, once with Maya & Shadermap pro running...)

    And sadly there's some changes in UT4 & UE4.7 that are fixed in current drivers but not in older drivers (since UT4 & UE4.7 are new builds as of last week) so my dev & gameplay efforts there are hampered as well!

    lol yes cause ManuelG is the only persons at Nvidia working on this fix.

    He just a community liaison, basically just relays messages to the development team.

    Just wanted to add I'm having no issues, Firefox has HA enabled, Chrome is not installed (been running without it for a couple months on this rig).

    I have Afterburner 4.1.1 always running, with 2000 ms polling (not sure if thats the default or what but thats what it's set to).

    Geforce Driver version 353.06, GF Experience is installed (HD Audio and Miracast not installed). Adobe Flash 17.0.0.188 (just adding that since lots of ppl having browser issues). Nothing is overclocked, all stock.
