Display driver crashes when launching GUIMiner
« on: January 19, 2016, 01:02:01 PM »
As soon as i configure everything and hit Start, 3 seconds later i hear my gpu noise increasing, mouse freezes, then screen goes black, and after 2 seconds everything is back to normal with notification that display driver crashed and recovered successfully.

Here is the log

I am using Windows10, NVIDIA GTX960 card, not overclocked.
I tried restarting my PC and reinstalling the drivers, with no luck.

nVidia cards don't use cgminer.

Good answer!  I've already forgotten that.  I was thinking maybe he had a old version.
