I rebooted, checked the fan and made sure it wasn't over heating. It seemed to only happen when using something in 3D.
So I decided to remove the drivers and reinstall. I used the older ones of off Windows Updated first and so far things seem to be going good. I did get one warning but have seen nothing since then. Played WoW all last night without and glitches. So I'm just wondering have any of you ever experienced this? Is it just the drivers or do you think my card could be going bad? It's EVGA so I got the lifetime warranty but I just wanted to make sure before I RMA'd it.
Well it could be a hardware issue, but if it's happened once, then it's probably not. I get the "driver stopped responding" when I OC my card too much.
