Default Graphic driver problem

Hey everyone,

I am having a very very weird issue.

First error message:
Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

Second error message:
The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display
driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue.
The application must close.


Error code: 7
Visit OpenGL message for more information.


I have latest Nvidia driver, did a clean install of it and still the same.
I did a clean install of windows and its still the same.
I removed one graphics card to fault find thinking after this point it is hardware issue.
I did a stress test on each graphics card individually, no drama what so ever.
I put them both back in, enabled SLI, same issue and it only happens in full screen.

I am stumped to what the cause could be, if it was a graphics card dead it would not work by it self.


Here is a video attachment of what is happening:





i5 2500K
MSI P67A-GD65
x2 Gainward GTX570 Phantom SLI
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
Corsair AX1200


I have done CPU stress test, Memtest86 and clear cmos.

Glad you fixed it.

Though out of curiosity, how did you work it out??

Thank you, after changing software and test hardware individually, only thing left that it could of been was motherboard or psu, i just swapped out the psu, ran Furmark in SLI and the driver didn't crash. Having the AX1200 which is fully modular i just swapped the plugs for the graphics card over onto a different rail on the power supply and now working fine.
