197.13 did it.... it solved the problem Intermittent Windows Shutdowns

I built a new computer, as below, and had persistent problems with Windows shutting down, but the computer would remain running. I checked the RAM repeatedly with MEMTEST86. v4.0 64-bit and the RAM checked good each time. I checked all other programs for conflicts and found none.

I run SETI on all four (4) video cards in the rig, and I tried to keep it running 24-7. But that was impossible with Windows intermittently terminating, while the computer itself stayed ON.

I started with nVidia driver 195.62 and upgraded to each new release. FINALLY, 197.13 solved the problem with persistent intermittent Windows shutdowns. It WAS the video driver(s). NOW it’s been on for two straight days without a Windows shutdown. Whereas before Windows would shutdown from two (2) to six (6) times daily.

FINALLY, finally… finally… nVidia got it right.
