    Maybe. I didn't try to collect statistics.

    Are either stable enough?
    Version .63 frequently "stops responding and refreshes" even during normal web browsing etc. and crashes with DPC Watchdog Violation error. Btw. Nvidia already released a hotfix..

    Please, avoid the latest Geforce driver 466.63, it's unstable.- hangs and crashes. Some people also got BSODs after updating. If you already updated, downgrade to 466.47.

    Ah yes, the eternal updates culture which indirectly states that the product has defects or insufficiencies.
    The Germans have the perfect word for it and you can Google yourself what it means: "Verschlimmbessern"
    last week ago a yet another update on Windows 10 wreak havoc on an otherwise satisfactory running OS.
    As they used to say, "keep it simple stupid"
    I haven't updated my Nvidia drivers for over 1 1/2 years because everything I need is running the way it should, so why bother? It will not improve or enhance my life and one day I will die like anyone no matter what.

    Hi, SparkyLite.

    Bad contact of display card could cause the situation possibly.

    Please you reseat display card and tried again.
    Most likely, that will cause a "VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE" BSOD. That stop error code, means that the video card disappeared and of course, Windows couldn't even respawn it with the basic 2D-only driver. I had a vertical-mounted GTX 660 that popped straight out cause that stop error code. I only knew, because the video went out and then I heard the motherboard BIOS reboot (I heard the BIOS bleep, which means Windows rebooted itself, because of card going MIA!)

    It was Windows 7, IIRC, as that was with my Asus Maximus II Gene (LGA 775 with P45 chipset) with the motherboard face-up, like a 1990s' PC case.

    Also check when you reinsert the video card that the little latch lock on the connector engages.
    I think I mentioned this once before, having the appropriate high-end cable respectively HDMI 2.1 cable can be all that's needed.
    I had a couple years ago this problem with sudden crashes and screen blackouts. The video card recovered and then I had the image again. The culprit? A low grade HDMI cable.
    Spent some 30 bucks on a high grade 48Gbs 2.1 type cable two years ago and never once the problem ever reoccurred!

    I think I encountered both of those kind of things, LOL. The first one, was the like there was pressure squeezing the card out of the PCI-E slot, LOL. I made sure to check the latch lock after that. I usually don't have such a hard time and it looked like a lot of it, was because I didn't use something to hold down the case slot bracket and it lifted up. I sure did after that. A screw wouldn't go down? Then I used caulk and held it down with my hand, LOL. As that was temporary. That was when I wasn't sure if I should have gotten a new case or not.
