    Display driver stopped responding and has recovered



    So, I've been playing a lot of this game called "GetAmped 2". Last night, my computer shat itself while playing it, the screen went black and when it came back I saw my display driver crashed and "recovered". This immediately happened several more times in succession until my computer froze. I restarted my computer and went to sleep, figuring I'd just left it on too long or... something.

    So, I start playing again in the morning and my screen goes black again. Oh fuck, the problem's back -- but it only happened once and I'm not freezing. I notice the particles in the game look really weird now, so I do another attack to observe and bam, it freezes. I do a system restore to five days ago.

    I restart again and go into the games "practice" mode, I don't wanna freeze during any more games. It crashes again and the particles look weird, and then, once again, it crashes and recovers and everything is back to normal. Fuck, the system restore didn't work -- the game crashes once more and the game closes. I continue to open my browser and then bam, it's still crashing and I bluescreen. The only thing from the blue screen I noticed was that it said something about "NATIO.SYS" or.. maybe netio. I don't know.

    Running Windows 7, 64 Bit Ultimate Edition. Anyone know what I should do?

    Just installed what I believed to be the "latest drivers". Could have been what I already had but either way I was using them fine for over a month, if it was a driver issue a reinstall should have fixed. Still getting the same problem.

    EDIT: Just got another blue screen. Something about "ndis.sys" this time

    It almost always gives out under stress. It started happening while I was just doing ordinary web browsing. I've been able to cut down on it a lot by switching to Windows Classic theme (read it as a fix online) but it still happens when I try to play games almost instantly.

    Sounds like either bad thermal management (though that should turn off the gfx / PC rather than crash the drivers afaik) or the gpu is, well, dying. I'm assuming you're capable enough of ruling out software problems
