    I think you're asking me, but I'm not on Windows v1809, I'm on v1803, and I haven't done any testing of "Fullscreen Optimizations" (I don't even know what that is) - I was just showing you the Game Mode stuff you asked about.

    Find the game exe, then right click on it, then properties, then compatibility tab and there is an option enabled by default "disable Fullscreen Optimizations".
    Check it if you want the option disabled.

    It's somewhat interesting that both of you use a high performance power plan, as the systems I've looked at that exhibit issues uses the "balanced" plan (with a few modifications).
    Not sure that it should or does matter, but it's worth a look at least.

    Thanks.

    My plan is more like 'balanced'. It doesn't lock the CPU to max clocks like max performance does. I checked the bitsum site and it suggested that frequency scaling was disabled in that plan, but it isn't here. Sorry for any confusion I've caused.

    No worries, thanks for clarifying.

    This driver works fine with my 1070. But with my 750 Ti PC, once you connect it to a 4k TV via HDMI, the whole screen turns green. Reverting it back to 411.70 solved the problem. All of my system are still at Windows 10 64x Ver.1803

    IRQ mode as it is the default and I haven't seen any benefit in changing it, but I'll give MSI mode a try if you need me to test something.

    I've always been using my GPU in the default IRQ mode, but I changed it to MSI mode for testing this afternoon. I had my first TDR playing Battlefield 1 after about 2 hrs: Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered. I've changed it back to the default IRQ mode now. What's the benefit to MSI mode? I think it's bugged, I wouldn't run it if I were you, I think it's the cause of your issues based on my testing this afternoon. Is it to reduce latency, mouse movement felt maybe a little different after switching to MSI, but it could be placebo - I'm sticking with default IRQ mode though now.

    (I used this guide for changing to MSI mode because didn't know what it was until this afternoon: https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/windows-line-based-vs-message-signaled-based-interrupts.378044/)

    Its not bugged. MSI is more stable than IRQ's unless your hardware is half bad.

    pci-e uses it natively anyway, irq's are a simulation on these cards.

    There is no evidence available, of an advantage to forcing it.
    Some users have claimed muh feels (placebo is strong) and some have used it as a strange (wrong) way to remedy an IRQ conflict/sharing configuration issue, but no real world benefit has been shown in forcing it upon devices not intended to use it.

    Neither method has any effect on stability. Certain implementations or configurations may become unstable (such as above, forcing it upon a card and driver not intended to use it) but that's not the protocol in either case.

    Unfortunately this isn't the case, or there'd be no grounds at all for a fix as described

    -Random DPC watchdog violation error when using multiple GPUs on motherboards with PLX chips -> Use the following tool to enable MSI mode as a temporary workaround (only apply changes to each NVIDIA GPU installed):

    AFAIK since Windows 95 / 98 that's pretty much the only way a user can resolve IRQ conflicts.

    Since XP you haven't been able to manually assign resources to devices.

    Does this driver improves performance with Assassin's Creed Odyssey can anyone tell compared to the previous version 411.70 ?

    Like I said.
    That isn't a fix it is a workaround, and it isn't because MSI is more stable, it's because the driver is broken.

    You can still do it if you have a conflict and/or the hardware and driver support it.


    Anyway we're miles from the topic now.

    I don't have a reliable way to reproduce the problem within a reasonable timeframe, and it seems a bit much to ask anyone to change a setting and possibly wait for a few months to see if the system TDR's; I've only had 20 of them during the last 5 months after all.
    I certainly appreciate the offer though.

    I originally started using MSI mode back when I had the Z77 board since the GPU was sharing IRQ with some other device, and then just kept using it with the Z97 board I have now since I didn't think there was any downside to it. It's enabled by default on AMD GPU's after all.
    I've switched back to IRQ mode now for testing purposes, and fortunately there are no devices sharing IRQ on this board.

    However, I know for a fact that the system that was stable under Win 7 had MSI mode enabled even back then. It would be a bit strange if MSI somehow causes instability under Win 10 specifically, but I don't really have anything to lose from trying out IRQ to see if it makes any difference.

    I don't own BF1 to test either, but I'll make a note of it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Edit: Just had another TDR whilst watching a youtube video.
    Running 399.24, Bitsum Highest Performance (minimum processor state manually set to 5%), NVCPL adaptive power plan, and IRQ mode on the GPU.

    Previous TDR with 416.16 (before changing any settings) I was just reading a post on reddit when it happened.

    I'm at a loss as to what's going on with this.

    No noticeable difference.

    Don't worry about it really, IRQ sharing is not the bad thing it once was. Unless you're on a vintage machine with actual ISA slots, don't concern yourself with it.

    Dang :(

    Well the fact that you've used the MSI forcing tweak kinda makes me wonder what other tweaks you've done that might have messed things up.
    A lot of us around here are inclined to tweak our gear to try and eek some extra performance out of it but honestly it's usually snake oil and sometimes downright detrimental. I myself recently fell victim to this (I am not throwing stones here, I live in that glass house! Tweaking is the best game on PC! XD) and had the standby memory stuttering problem, tried clearing the standby list as required,and suffered a different performance drop (due to lack of cache) and have since resolved it by un-tweaking my machine a little. When it comes to tweaking your PC, less is usually more.

    You might want to consider a fresh install of windows without all your usual magic and see how you go. If that works then start to wave the magic tweak wand, apply one tweak at a time and test it, until it breaks again, and you'll have your culprit. I know that's the long slow way to the answer but it'll probably save you a lot of messing around and guesswork. Of course, this approach assumes that it should 'just work' on a fresh install and without the tweaks, but I think that's a fair assumption to make given that the issues don't seem widespread even with all the tweaking going on around here.

    (Well my TDR in BF1 was almost certainly related to having changed to MSI mode, because I never had them before when in the default IRQ mode - seems like too much of a coincidence). Although your problem doesn't seem to be related to MSI because you had IRQ enabled there for your EDIT comment, you got a different kinda issue on. I'd set everything to "stock" both on hardware & software side like CaptaPraelium suggested to set you on the road to problem solving.
