Hi, i recently upgraded my Graphics card to an Nvidia GTS 450

I started receiving tasks that use the GPU (ps_separation_10......) but a lot of them are failing with comnputation error after about 2 seconds Is this normal ? Is there something wrong with my setup ? Any help would be appreciated.

Are you using a screen saver, even a blanking one? If so STOP and use the power button on your monitor when you walk away instead!

This is an Nvidia driver bug. With the most recent set of drivers after the display goes to sleep or something like that tasks can't run correctly

Yep it is the 295.xx and 296.xx drivers with the sleep bug.

The beta 301.24 drivers do not have the bug.

I have endless computation errors despite having no screen saver. This is frustrating.

It is not the screen saver but display sleep that is causing the errors.

Update to 301.42 which does not have the bug.
