    Is anyone having an issue with the monitor screen blacking out for a few seconds and then a "Display driver not responding" message appearing in the lower right corner?

    I recently added a NVIDIA GeForce GT 720 1 GB graphics card and have driver version 352.86 installed and am having this issue.

    It happened a few times on the previous driver and once on 352.86. Soon as it happend on 352.86 I just ran the installer again and clicked “Custom (Advanced)” and checked the box next to “Perform a clean installation” It’s been about a week and have had no problems.

    The custom install is what I use, and I always select and install only the graphics driver.

    I'm on a different desktop this morning, and it's been doing the same thing every few minutes.

    I just did a clean install of version 347.88 of the graphics driver.

    Let's see if that resolves the issue.

    Nope. It's still doing it. :(

    The temperatures still appear to be fine.

    It's gone over an hour without blacking out for a few seconds, so maybe the older driver resolved the issue.

    I'll run it for another hour or so to be sure.

    So far, so good. (y)
