After one week of tests, tutorials, new and old drivers disinstallation and re-installation etc. I finally enter this discussion because none of the solutions I’ve found seem to work for me.
I’m running Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit with a Quadro K4000M and I’m having looots of trouble with “NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver stopped responding and has recovered successfully”.
This happens randomly and even without using 3D/photo-editing/video-editing applications.
For example, recently the driver crashed when I opened the control panel, the Windows control panel.
More specifically, Blender exits when I try to render (GPU) or simply access render settings.
Houdini doesn’t even start.
Rhino crashes randomly.
PC doesn’t always shut down completely, simply hangs.
Is there any final solution to this problem?
Thank you all :)
