    Not sure if this is a software or hardware issue.


    Hi there, I have an ASUS G73SW-BST6 with a GTX460M inside it. It is not overclocked. It is hooked up to a monitor via VGA cable running 1920 x 1080 native.

    I have been getting occasional bugs where my screen will flicker and it will have the error message (Nvidia Driver 261.17 has stopped responding but has recovered). The temps at this point on the core are only about 65 C, so it's not overheating. My games I play (SC2 on Ultra, Aion on max settings) do not artifact. The only thing peculiar is that if im running windows live messenger, the messenger screen goes blank as if it's a blank window, and any video I was streaming online the video box in the webpage turns into green. The games themselves however have 0 artifacts and the card is not over-heating. The drivers have not changed since I got this computer. Could anyone offer some advice? is there any good video burn in programs I can run to test this?

    oh this thing again...

    that manifests for an array of different reasons which you would conclude if you ever tried searching it on google and when it happened to me it was a memory related issue, not gpu or its drivers but since the message clearly says display driver stopped working thats where i went first.

    anyways after few nights of reading, changing my ati for nvidia card at the time and then ultimately lowering my sys memory frequency to 800Mhz from default 1066Mhz it really helped. since then i always buy the recomended mem modules for my motherboard and i have not seen this happen since.

    hope it helps.
