There are some examples about NVIDIA driver crashing, such as:
"My 850M graphics card used to run perfectly, but it begin to fall into crashing since the driver has been updated on Windows 10. Even if it is the latest version, there are also crashing,no corresponding problems etc, so I think the old drivers are more stable."
"I have a GTX560M graphics card, 296.10. The problem is that when I use LIVE on Windows 7 to browse the pictures, there will be black screen in one second, then it recovers and reminds that the drivers are with no response and auto-recovery."
"The computer always becomes black screen or white screen, sometimes even without any response. Meanwhile, we can observe the system alert that NVIDIA display driver has stopped response at first, later been recovered on Windows 7. While on Windows XP, there is a problem of blue screen and the error message includes some information of nvd3dum.dll."
Common solutions to NVIDIA driver crashing
Graphics card driver crashing is mainly caused by the incompatibility of the system and the newly-installed drivers, or the incompleteness and non-correspondence of the new driver.
In this case, we should pay attention to the installing order. If your laptop is designed with double display, you need to install integrated graphics first, and then the discrete graphics, last sound card and internet card. Before installing new drivers, you need to uninstall totally those old drivers, then download corresponding versions. If you are using Windows 8, please close your start-up system quickly and then make installation of those needy drivers.
