    I have tried everything with these 169.01 vista drivers....

    AM I the only one...?

    Default clocks, default memory, default Gpu, different settings in Nvcpl, different pci-e freq in bios everything from 90 - 110, tried with and without memory vmod....

    Still it's getting the best of me.

    It takes about 5 minutes to happen....in Crysis it happens quicker if I use high and very high settings....

    I am getting this too. I happens for me a few seconds after I start playing with Anti aliasing selected at 2X in Crysis. Its not just you.

    Can you be more specific with the removal of the updates?

    I get this problem sometimes with Crysis, on both 32bit and 64 bit versions. Usually only with activation of AA though.

    Sorry. That did the trick for me.
    Crysis is giving me the error using the latest beta drivers, so I switched back to the latest WHQL release which are stable for me.

    I used to have this problem very frequently. For me it turned out to be a faulty ram stick. Swapped it over and i haven't heard from it again. Might be worthwhile doing a memtest.

    Same problem here, but then it's in every game.. sometimes it works ok for hours but then suddenly it starts happening .. and doesn't go away anymore .. I just got it while playing company of heroes, now I get it everytime I want to play a game. I've ran memtest for hours, 0 error's so it can't be the memory nor the cpu or what ever .. but I really can't take it anymore feel like throwing my pc away.. changing drivers also doesn't solve it.
