Hello everybody. I have a new Asus G75.
My problem is that after the login, when I start the first program, the screen becomes black for an instant; then the backlight goes to maximum setting, the image comes back and following message appears:
Display driver stopped responding and has recovered
Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 296.44 stopped
responding and has successfully recovered.
After that error the computer can work for hours without any problem (but i have to set the baklight back to its value at any login). If the computer stays idle for quite some time, the error can come back again when I start re-using the computer.
I opened a thread here, but it was the wrong section i guess.
What I have tried
I've tried to download the latest driver from the Nvidia website (link). The graphics card model is "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M", and the last driver I found is the version 304.79 beta (link). This attempt did not fix the problem.
Following the suggesions of the user c_man on this thread, I've tried to install the modded version of the driver, available here. I uninstalled all the Nvidia drivers (and disabled the auto-install option on windows 7). Then I edited the inf file in the display driver and i used the modified one. I installed this version of the driver. The drivers are working but the problem is still there.
I've tried the solution for this error on the Microsoft website here, using this "Fix it for me" application. No success.
Any of you experienced the same problem? Should I contact Asus support?
EDIT: The problem was a defective GPU card, I sent the computer bak to Asus, they replaced the GPU and now my computer is ok.
