Hope I'm in the correct forum - I searched this issue and couldn't find an answer. Really appreciate your help in resolving this issue:

My Computer:
Intel Core i7 920 3.8 GHz Factory Overclock from 2.6 GHz
CPU Cooler - Corsair Water Cooler
Asus P6x58D premium MoBd
Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 6GB
Graphics Card BFG GeForce GTX 285 - 2GB
Win7 64Bit

Every once in a while while working on my computer, whether it be a graphics intensive game or just working in Word, my screen goes dark and i receive the following message:

"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver Version 34144 stopped responding"

I have updated my video driver but this seems to continue.

This has been happening for a long time and is beginning to increase in frequency.

Thanks for your help with this!!

Nvidia Control Panel -> 3D Settings -> Set PhysX configuration -> Select a Physx processor -> choose your graphics card instead of leaving it on auto-select.

completed the last suggestion and really thought we had it this time, but it just now did the same thing again. Screen goes dark - shortly followed by the desktop coming back with the message quoted above.
Any other ideas? Your help is really appreciated!!

Another fast update. so far so good with the older drivers. Will monitor just a bit longer before I mark this as solved.
Thanks for everyone's help!

I was just about ready to call this solved and it happened again. I've installed the 327.23 drivers, but still happening. much longer between occurrences but still happening. Don't wish to be any trouble, but any more ideas to try?
Thanks a bunch!!
