    Asus Strix 980 not fully stable? Far Cry 4 - Display driver stopped responding

    After several hours of play without driver crash i get today first driver crash in Far Cry 4. Application stopped. Then i saw on events: Nvlddmkm Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Its very random , sometimes i can play even 24 hours without driver crash and sometimes like today its crashed driver after 5 minutes of started game.
    Its problem with driver or my its just my card? ( i am using stock Asus Strix 980 ). I am using the newest drivers. All other games runs without even single crash. I tested Unigine Heaven for 10 hours, without crash. I tested Metro Last Light for few hours without crash too.

    Only Far Cry 4 sometimes crash after 5 minutes,but mostly often i can play 24 hours without driver crash.

    Using 347.88 WHQL.


    All my pc is stock, cpu is 4790k stock. GPU is on stock too.

    From what i know,crashing display driver Nvlddmkm its always graphic card ( hardware ) failure? Rma graphic card?

    If it was a defective GPU, it'd crash in all games or benchmarks not just on Far Cry 4. It's an isolated problem and most probably caused by the Far Cry 4 game.

    TDR's are always happening because of "bad/broken" hardware.Or it can be software too?

    TDRs can occur because of many reasons. They are not always caused by the GPU or NVIDIA driver.

    There is something wrong with this game, I keep getting corrupted files and my machine is stable. I don't know why or how but it wants to install the Directx and the .Net framework, I'm really annoyed with this now. Ever since the last patch far cry 4 is very buggy. It did it twice today, I play for a few minutes and the game comes up with a message far cry 4 has stopped working.

    This is the only game that gives me problems.

    On 344.75 WHQL i dont get any driver crash. Only on 347.88 WHQL i have random driver nvlddmkm crashes on Far Cry 4. Is this related to game\software or just stock OC of my card is not stable fully?
    I am asking because from what i know TDR's are always happening because of "bad/broken" hardware. Or i am wrong?

    As Chino says there are many things that can cause TDR's not just the gpu or driver.

    Have a read through this.

    Somebody say:"Another popular thing is when nVidia optimizes the driver, and it pushes the card even harder and reveals a card crash, then people blame the driver, when the new driver is simply revealing a problem with the card."
    So i have propablly card issue when on 347.88 i have driver crashing only on Far Cry 4? Because driver pushes the card harder and is simply revealing a problem with card. It can be true?

    Also yesterday I installed 350 HOTFIX. Far Cry 4 played 24 hours without driver crash. So on 347.88 my card is just unstable? Is this because driver 347.88 pushing my card harder and card is unstable? Or its was only driver issue?
    I am thinking why my card seems not stable on 347.88 WHQL. Any suggestions?
