GeForce 9800gtx+ freezes often

  1. I have had this computer for since December 2009 and I have been plagued many times by my graphic driver failing, and my system either takes 2 minutes to resume or it just completely crashes. I have reinstalled the driver, made sure the hardware was fine, and I put it through 2 stress tests.

    If you have any answers, please help me.

    And what happened?
    If it ran the tests fine, but fails while playing a game its probably the game's fault.

    What do you mean graphic driver failing and what game were you playing.

    Nothing happens after the stress tests, the results are perfect. It's just while I'm playing tf2 my screens will go black and I have to wait a minute or so to resume playing the game. Once the screen comes back I get a notification that the driver has failed and it has been recovered.

    If you haven't already, uninstall your current driver, and get the latest version.
    I don't know never heard of this before, exactly what did the error message say?
