Q: I am getting a error: The Nvidia OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver and is unable to continue. Error Code 8 This thread is locked from future replies

When I am playing the Interactiver Virtual Community - Second Life. The screen goes blank and windows tells me the Display Adapter Stopped Responding and has recovered. While the second life viewer is still blank (white). I get the error in a box : The Nvidia OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver and is unable to continue. The application must close. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html for help. Error code 8. Now I have worked with Nvidia to do a clean install of the latest driver. a driver install in safe mode. they suggested to try a older driver version. Nothing they told me worked, and told me to consult Microsoft. The driver crashes every 30 mins or so, while online in the second life game. Can someone help me?
