New WHQL GeForce Drivers

The GeForce website now offers new version 331.65 WHQL-certified drivers for NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. Here's word on all the newness these bring:

The new GeForce 331.65 WHQL driver is now available to download. An essential update for all GeForce GTX users, 331.65 WHQL is the Game Ready driver for Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, and includes the Batman: Arkham Origins optimizations introduced alongside 331.58 WHQL last week. With 331.65 WHQL, you’ll receive a great gaming experience from day one with the latest driver tweaks and performance optimizations, including up to 12% extra performance in Battlefield 4.

Other titles benefit, too: Sniper Elite V2 performance increases by up to 19%, DiRT Showdown performance by up to 13%, Metro: Last Light performance by up to 9%, Sleeping Dogs performance by up to 9%, Max Payne 3 performance by up to 9%, and F1 2012 performance by up to 6%.

GeForce 331.65 WHQL also sees the introduction of GeForce Experience 1.7, which includes the long-awaited ShadowPlay Beta, an innovative gameplay recording tool that can constantly record the action with a minimal performance impact thanks to the H.264 encoder built into GeForce GTX 600 and 700 Series GPUs. For full details about ShadowPlay, and other new features of GeForce Experience 1.7, please check out our GeForce Experience 1.7 launch story.

Video driver failed & recovered
In the Nvidia 3D configuration set your power management to maximum.

By default Nvidia's drivers are set to switch the card to a low power mode ("adaptive") when not in use. Sometimes this happens while playing games..hence the driver restart error. Basically the card stops receiving enough power and the driver restarts. I've had this problem with nearly every NV card since the 7 series. Setting power management to maximum performance always solved it. There are tons of people with this problem yet somehow Nvidia doesn't document this really easy fix.
