    Default nvidia kernel driver has stopped responding problem

    I know this seems to be a persistant problem, but I built a new system about a year ago, and just last night my [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]screen[/COLOR][/COLOR] goes all black and I get that persistant message "nvidia kernel driver has stopped responding". the screen then comes back and goes black back and forth.
    The system has all the cooling it could get at least for the CPU using the hyper 212. Its not overclocked at all, and actually blows cool air out the vents.
    I'm running an [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Asrock[/COLOR][/COLOR] P67 Extreme MB,Asus TX560TI video card,Kingston HyperX memory 8GB and an I5-2500K CPU.
    If the system stays on long enough I could check a few things, If it does what should I check, other than make sure the fans are clean of dust and spinning?

    Default Re: nvidia kernel driver has stopped responding problem

    Were you gaming when the drivers stopped responding?
    Did you check the event log to see if there were any problems just before kernel driver stopped responding?
    Are there any recent hardware of software changes to your system?
    What is version of your current Nvidia drivers? Are you using Nvidia beta drivers?
    Do you let windows automatically update the Nvidia drivers?
    You might try uninstalling the current Nvidia drivers and installing the most recent WHQL drivers.
    It might help if you let HWMonitor run so that you can monitor temperatures.
