I've been getting more and more frequent crashes when running TDM.
This started happening out of the blue about two months ago. First, the error was: "The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver". This would cause TDM to hang and then crash.
After this happened a few times I updated to the most recent drivers, and the error changed slightly to an appcrash with "The NVIDIA OpenGL driver detected a problem with display driver", with the faulty app being nvoglv32.DLL. When TDM crashes, it also causes DR, and Lightwave to crash as well if they're open. If Photoshop is open it gives a "Photoshop has encountered problem with display driver and has disabled GPU enhancements." warning.
The crashes are happening more frequently in TDM now. Used to be once a week, now it seems to happen any time I have TDM open for more than 5 minutes. And I just got that Photoshop warning message this morning even though I hadn't opened TDM.
I got messages like this two years ago, and got a new video card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti) , which made them go away. Two years seems like a short time for a GPU to start dying...is there any way to confirm that the card is the problem? I don't mind replacing it if so, but I don't want to spend a couple hundred on a new card and then find out the problem still happens.
