Recentlymy computer has begun experiencing freezing issues while in any game that utilizes DirectX or OpenGL.
The game would freeze during game play, displaying the same frame for 30 seconds or so, then Windows would report that the "Nvidia Driver has crashed", or the game would report a "render error". This error is somewhat intermittent, with gameplay performing fine for an hour or so and then freezing again.
Note that I am using the most current driver for my graphics card (GeForce GTX 660). Restarting the computer does not fix the problem, nor does changing the graphic's card's settings. Any tips on mitigating this problem?
